For single bets and active accumulators that can be cash out, you also have the ability to Edit the bet through this highly-praised feature.

Through the feature, say you had an accumulator running (and qualifying selections can be pre-match or in-play) that you aren’t entirely happy with, you have the ability to change your bet. You can swap, add or remove selections. On an unsettled single bet you have the ability to swap and adds selections as well.

So if you had a correct score on a match and decided that maybe you want to go a different route, you could add a selection to that, or swap out that original selection, as long as the bet is eligible for the cash out option. The Edit Bet feature can be used whenever the Cash Out feature is available for all unsettled selection within your bet and make your changes.

Even in the instance of having an accumulator where some of the selections or settled, if you aren’t entirely happy with the selections that you have left running on the bet, then you have the power of the edit. Again, you can go and cut a selection entirely or swap it out, or of course if you wanted to expand the bet, you can add to it. This is the power that you have at your fingertips with the Bet365 Edit Bet feature.

Editing a bet can be done directly through the betting slip where in the top right hand corner you will see the link. Editing a bet can be done on a mobile or tablet device, you have the option to Add a Selection, Swap a Selection or Remove a Selection. After any editing, you will have to hit save and then within five seconds hit confirm. When you do edit a bet, the current Cash Out value will be used as the new stake and then the prices will be updated to reflect the live odds that are currently running and not the initial prices.

FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Predictions & Betting Odds

Real Madrid

The FIFA Club World Cup 2016 has already started and it is a tournament which struggles to attract a lot of attention. What the tournament is, is a coming together of the seven continental confederation champions to see who is crowned the best club in the world. It all sounds like a big fancy thing, but it is struggles to live up to its name. That is because the lack of big named clubs in the event and the whole lopsided set up of the thing. It’s not the most straightforward of tournaments because there is a quarter-final stage with just two games and a play-off round before that.

Entering at the play off stage this year was the hosts from the AFC, the Kashima Antlers. They took on the OFC Champions League winners Auckland City and pulled off a win to move through to the quarter finals. They didn’t stop there as they won that match to move through to the final four. Yes, even though there is quarter final stage, there are only two games and the winners of those two games go through to the semi finals, the stage at which the big two teams in the tournament enter, namely the champions of the CONMEBOL and UEFA confederations.

The winners of the Copa Libertadores from CONMEBOL and the UEFA Champions League winners then only have to win two games to be crowned the best club in the world by winning the FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Cup. It looks like an unfair advantage and the whole thing would probably be more entertaining if it was just a random draw, but FIFA obviously wants the best teams in the final. All but two of the twelve previous editions of the FIFA Club World Cup has been a showdown between the CONMEBOL and UEFA Champions.

Real Madrid are running as 1/8 favourites in FIFA Club World Cup 2016 betting at Bet365, a huge dominance in the market over second favourites Atletico Nacional from Colombia.

FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Betting Odds

Real Madird 1/8, Atlético Nacional 9/1, Club America 14/1, Kashima Antlers 20/1

FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Betting Promotion

Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet. This applies to all matches in their sportsbook.

FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Draw

Here were the entrants for the FIFA Club World Cup 2016

Play Off Round
Kashima Antlers (AFC) Hosts
Auckland City – OFC Champions League Winners

Quarter Final Entrants
America – CONCACAF Champions League Winners
Mamelodi Sundowns – CAF Champions League Winners
Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors – AFC Champions League Winners

Semi Final entrants
Atletico Nacional – CONMEBOL Copa Libertadores Winners
Real Madrid – UEFA Champions League Winners

So the tournament is already underway and the semi-finals will start on December 14th. Having one already is the play off round where the Antlers, as mentioned, beat Auckland 2-1. The host club then took out South African side Mamelodi Sundowns 2-0 to set themselves up with a game against Colombia’s Atletico Nacional on December 14th. Mexican side America beat out Korea’s Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors in the other quarter final to move through to get the sucker draw against Real Madrid in the semi finals on December 15th.

The Final of the FIFA Club World Cup will be played on December 18th from Yokohama and as you can see, until the CONMEBOL and UEFA Champions come in at the semi final stage, it’s easy to bypass the interest in this tournament.

FIFA Club World Cup Info

This tournament throughout its fairly brief history has been about the CONMEBOL and UEFA sides entering. The event is set up for them really and it’s basically been a championship match between the two Confederations each year. The tournament was started in 2000 but didn’t get contested again until 2005 and this will be the 13th edition of the event. From the twelve previous editions of the FIFA Club World Cup you have had eight UEFA winners and four CONMEBOL winners.

You can read further into dominance as well though because only on two occasions has there been a side in the final who hasn’t come from either UEFA and CONMEBOL. That was when CAF sides TP Mazembe lost the 2013 Final to Inter Milan and when Raja Casablanca lost to Bayern Munich in 2013. So this is why you can expect to see the FIFA Club World Cup being nothing more than a showcase game between UEFA and CONMEBOL.

FIFA Club World Cup 2016 Betting Prediction

So with four teams left now in the FIFA Club World Cup and Real Madrid being one of them, it’s hard not to side with them. They took it seriously a couple of years ago when they lifted the title for the first time and they are likely going to have too much in their tank for whoever they go up against in the final. It will most likely be Atletico Nacional that they stomp over to get their hands on the title.

Bet365 free £50 in play bet offer for Man Utd v Tottenham betting


Manchester United have had a bit of a sticky season on home soil this season in the top flight. They have won just two of their seven home games this season and have drawn each of their last four on the bounce there. So they are not running in title contending form at the moment by any stretch of the imagination, but they have a chance to land a confidence-boosting win when they play hosts to Tottenham. The Red Devils need the three points from this one to just pull to within three points of Spurs, who start the weekend up in fifth place.

So this is not a game in which United can afford to lose more ground in. They did land a 1-0 home win over Spurs last season in this corresponding fixture and Spurs have lost more Premier League games at Old Trafford than at any other ground visited in the competition. Tottenham have won just two of their last seven Premier League games but were thrilling in a 5-0 home win over Swansea last weekend. The return of Harry Kane from injury has done them the power of good and it will be down to a battle between him and United’s Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the striker stakes to try and fire their respective clubs to an important three points.

Go and register an account with online betting site Bet365 and enjoy a risk free in-play bet offer for Man Utd v Tottenham betting.

This is a tremendous offer from Bet365 so to enjoy it, place a bet on the game before kick off and then after the game has started, go to their extensive live in play betting portal. You will have over 70 in-play markets available to choose from on Man Utd v Tottenham betting and after your pre-match wager place an in-play bet on the game. If your FIRST In-play bet loses then Bet365 will refund your lost stake (up to the same value as your largest pre-match bet with a maximum refund of £50) for you!

So the risk free bet will be equal to your largest pre-match single on the game up to a maximum of £50. If there is more than one in-play wager on the slip, the first one on it will only apply for the offer. Any partly cashed out or full cashed out bets are excluded from the offer. There is just the one free bet per customer and both new customers can take advantage of this Bet365 special by opening an account with the award winning bookmaker today.

Bet365 offer £50 risk free in-play bet for Barcelona v Man City


It is the return of Pep Guardiola (for the second time) on Wednesday night as the former Barcelona boss heads back to the Nou Camp. He takes Manchester City there on Wednesday night in a crucial match in the UEFA Champions League group stage because his Citizens go into the game trailing group leaders Barcelona by two points. City were tripped up in a 3-3 draw with Celtic at Parkhead last time out, meaning that they can’t afford to go and lose this one in Spain. A win would put them in the driving seat to go on and win the group, but it’s a tough thing to go to the Nou Camp and expect to come away with a victory.

Barcelona have averaged 3.3 goals per game this season across all competitions and have scored nine in two Champions League matches this season. City have seven in their two games so there are goals to be expected in this Nou Camp clash. The Citizens have lost their four previous Champions League games against Barcelona and had a man sent off in three of the four clashes, while Sergio Aguero missed a penalty in the other meeting. So things haven’t gone their way, but they haven’t been beaten heavily by the Spaniards. Can they mix things up and pull off a surprise win, a win that would blow the group and perhaps the Champions League, wide open?

Go and register an account with online betting site Bet365 and take a risk free £50 in-play bet on Barcelona v Manchester City.

To take advantage of this great offer go and place a pre-match wager on the Barcelona v Manchester City game  and then the bookmaker will give you a free in-play bet (matched to the value of your largest pre-match bet) and if that FIRST in-play bet on the big match loses then you will get a lost stake refunded (up to the maximum of a £50 free bet)!

So you get a risk-free in-play bet on Barcelona v Manchester City and this applies to pre-match stakes only and any pre-match wagers that are fully or partly cashed out won’t qualify. The risk free bet will be deemed as your first single place in-play. If you place more than one in-play selection at the same time, the first one listed on the bet slip will qualify. The offer is limited to one per person and qualifying bets must be placed with real money bets.

So with Bet365’s extensive range of both pre-match and in-play markets, this is a tremendous offer for your Barcelona v Manchester City UEFA Champions League betting. There will be over 70 active markets on the match after kick off including Next Goal, Match Goals, Match Corners, Half Time Result, Full Time result and many, many more. Register today to enjoy other great features like live streams, cash out and partial cash outs.

World Cup 2018 UEFA Qualifying Group B Predictions and Odds

International Football Betting

Portugal, the reigning European Champions look to have fallen on their feet in this one. They march into their 2018 World Cup qualifying group as firm favourites and it is easy to see why. This is a draw which they should be lapping up, especially with their new found confidence of being the kings of Europe. During Euro 2016 qualification, the Portuguese were not that overly convincing at any stage but still battled their way through. Things have to be smoother for them here.

Group B Winner Odds:

Portugal 5/8, Switzerland 13/8, Hungary 20/1, Faroe Islands 350/1, Latvia 500/1, Andorra 5000/1.

The head to head between Portugal and Switzerland is pretty even though, with Portugal just ahead with a W3 D3 L2 record. The last time these two met was at the Euro 2008 Championship with the Swiss taking a 2-0 win. That did snap a six match unbeaten streak that the Portuguese were on against the Swiss though, so you would have to side with Portugal here who have a W2 D1 L0 record at home against Switzerland. Cristiano Ronaldo didn’t have a huge hand in them qualifying for Euro 2016 and don’t expect him firing out of the gates in this qualification campaign.

Still, he is a special player that they can call on in times of need and Switzerland don’t have that. The Swiss barely did anything of note at Euro 2016, bowing out of the round of sixteen on penalties against Poland, with the Poles actually making them look good in that game because of how defensive they went themselves. Switzerland have been to the last three consecutive World Cup Finals but are likely to have to have to get back there through the play-offs. They aren’t good enough in attack or defence to beat Portugal to the punch.

Top 2 Finish Odds: Portugal 1/25, Switzerland 1/6, Hungary 9/4, Faroe Islands 28/1, Latvia 28/1, Andorra 200/1

As for Hungary, can they make an impression after reaching Euro 2016? They started the tournament positively and got out of the group as winners, but then it all fell apart in the round of 16 when they were pummelled by Belgium. That was a steep learning curve for them, but they did well in Euro 2016 qualifying, it has to be said. The same end product may not be there this time around though and their games against the Swiss will decide it all. The head to head between the two is actually even but the Swiss have lost just one of their last four against them and should edge second place.

Qualification Prediction: Portugal, Switzerland, Hungary, Latvia, Faroe Islands, Andorra

Enjoy live football streams at online betting site Bet365 including international matches. This allows you to enjoy the great product and live in-play betting at the same time. Bet365 offer both cash out and partial cash out options through live in-play betting adding a great dimension to your football wagering.

England squad announced for World Cup 2018 qualifiers

International Football Betting

The big story of Sam Allardyce’s first England squad is in the inclusion of West Ham’s winger Michael Antonio. The youngster, who has now made the long journey from non-league football up to international level is the first new cap that gets a shot under the new manager. Allardyce was installed as the new England boss following England’s dismal showing at Euro 2016 under Roy Hodgson who got things tactically wrong for most of the tournament.

Allardyce’s first competitive game in charge of the Three Lions is in a World Cup qualifier against Slovakia on September 4th. Obviously the core of the squad was never going to be totally shaken up at all but there have been a couple of notable changes, not just Antonio getting his first show, but Allardyce has made a statement by omissions as well. He has left out Everton’s Ross Barkley and Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere.

Wilshere’s place in the Euro 2016 was one of great contention because he had barely played all season because of injury, but Hodgson took him anyway instead of the in-form Danny Drinkwater. No such luck for Wilshere here, but Leicester’s Drinkwater gets a shot back in the squad as well as Arsenal’s Theo Walcott.

After a disappointing Euro 2016 campaign, Manchester City keeper Joe Hart has kept his place in the squad, but whether he gets the starting nod over Fraser Forster is a different matter altogether. Hart is now number two at Man City under Pep Guardiola and with the Citizens signing Barcelona keeper Claudio Bravo which may push him down the pecking order even more. While Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney stays in the squad, one of four strikers to make it, his club teammate Marcus Rashford goes to the U21 side.

Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Southampton), Joe Hart (Manchester City), Tom Heaton (Burnley).

Defenders: Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Luke Shaw (Manchester United), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), John Stones (Manchester City), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders: Dele Alli (Tottenham Hotspur), Michail Antonio (West Ham United), Eric Dier (Tottenham Hotspur), Danny Drinkwater (Leicester City), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Theo Walcott (Arsenal).

Strikers: Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Jamie Vardy (Leicester City).

So England start their World Cup qualifying campaign in Slovakia on September 4th and they are a quote of even money to take the win. England of course won all ten of their Euro 2016 qualification matches and are strong favourites to win their qualification group for Russia 2018. England have won three of their four previous games against Slovakia, but could only manage a 0-0 draw against them at Euro 2016. The two sides met in their final group stage match and England never lived up to expectation and could only manage a really dull 0-0 draw. That left Wales to win the group.

So the Hodson era has passed and in steps Sam Allardyce. What approach will the new Three Lions take to the game? You can expect to see plenty of hard work and players really putting some pride and effort in because Allardyce will demand that. There could also be a more English style of direct football coming up.

Register an account with online betting site Bet365 and you will have 0-0 bore draw insurance coverage running on all the international games that are coming up and you will have access to live streams as well! Place a pre-match bet on the correct score, scorecast or half time/full time markets and if your bet loses because the game ends goalless you will get your lost stake refunded.

UEFA Champions League Group Stage Draw Preview and Odds


The draw is set for the UEFA Champions League and there are some massive group stage clashes to come. Grabbing the headlines out of the box was the pairing together of Barcelona and Manchester City again. Will new City boss be able to put together a masterplan to take down his old club, which of course he knows inside out? He also has working knowledge of Borussia MOnchengladbach as well from his time spent in Germany with Bayern Munich so will all of this help the Citizens on their way to getting out of their group, which also contains Scottish Champions Celtic?

So while Manchester City kind of get the short end of the straw, the rest of the news isn’t all too bad for the other English entrants. Tottenham have a very manageable group as they compete in the competition for the first time in six seasons, while Arsenal can be happy enough with their draw with their only real competition in Group A coming from French Champions PSG. Reigning Champions of England, Leicester have fallen on their feet for their debut UEFA Champions League campaign. They will do battle with FC Porto, but shouldn’t find life too difficult against Club Brugge and FC Copenhagen at all and there should be a great chance for them to get out of their group at the first time of asking. Will all four English combatants make it through to the knockout stage of the competition? Here we break down the UEFA Champions League Groups and look at some of the odds knocking around.

Champions League Group by Group A Predictions and Preview

PSG, Arsenal, Basel, Ludogorets

This should be fairly routine and straightforward for the big two in this one. PSG are running as outright 8/11 favourites to win this group and even without the goals of Zlatan Ibrahimovic they are a side bursting with quality and power. Their stock in the Champions League has risen over the last couple of season and they should be something of a lock for a quarter final berth. Arsenal aren’t quite up to the level of the French outfit at the moment, but the Gunners should still be comfortable enough to see off the challenges of FC Basel and Ludogorets to make their way through to the knockout stage. The problem there is that there will be a harder draw for them as opposed to them winning the group, but seeing them get the better of PSG is hard to imagine. Arsenal are 13/8 to win the group and 1/5 to qualify.

Champions League Group by Group B Predictions and Preview

Napoli, Benfica, Dinamo Kiev, Besiktas 9/1

Much like Group A this is a group which looks lopsided and there shouldn’t be too much drama knocking around it. Napoli are the clear favourites in this one to make it through as winners and they are running at a price of 5/4 to pull that off. There are tricky away games in this one it has to be said with trips to the Ukraine and to Turkey, which are never easy, but the solidity of the Napoli should see them just fine. They have the goals in them to negotiate their way to the top of the pile. More likely than not they will be followed through by Benfica, who are always an exciting side but are never that trustworthy at the back. Look for efficiency and strength in this one and that is all with the Italians.

Champions League Group by Group C Predictions and Preview

Barcelona, Manchester City, Borussia Monchengladbach, Celtic

Well Manchester City never seem to get much of a break in the UEFA Champions League. They go up against Barcelona for the third time in their last four appearances in the competition and this time it is just made all that more interesting by the fact that Pep Guardiola will get something of a reunion with his former club. Of course along the way City are going to have put themselves against the best to get anywhere in the competition but they have a tough start and the bookmakers aren’t on their side. Barcelona are 2/5 odds on to win this group with Manchester City out at 3/1. Big difference in price and the proven quality of the Catalans is tipping the balance in this one of course. It is hard to see the Citizens taking more than two points in their games against the Catalans, particularly because of the away game at the Nou Camp and while Guardiola will also know Borussia Monchengladbach from his time in Germany, it’s likely the Citizens will end up second best to Barcelona in his one. The other big feature is Celtic being thrown in the mix which should make for some great atmospheres at Parkhead. They are 80/1 outsiders to in the group and a long 14/1 shot to qualify.

Champions League Group by Group D Predictions and Preview

Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, PSV, Rostov

Debutants Rostov get a rough draw that’s for sure and are going to struggle for points along the way here. Bayern Munich are 1/2 favourites to win this group and you would have to side with them. Even though they have lost Pep Guardiola, Carlo Ancelotti is there and the squad looks just as strong and as powerful as ever. They remain on the right track as one of Europe’s top clubs and they should get pretty close to getting their hands on the title. Even with the scrappy presence of Atletico Madrid in this group, it shouldn’t derail Bayern from going on and winning the group. PSV are likely to end up in the Europa League from this lot, as they Dutch outfit are unlikely to make too much headway into the big two here. Atletico are 5/6 to finish second in the group.

Champions League Group by Group E Predictions and Preview

Tottenham, CSKA Moscow, Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen

Tottenham will be pleased with the draw at that have received. That’s not to say that they won’t have tricky away games at CSKA Moscow and Monaco to come, because they will and that will test their credentials in being able to break sides down on the road in Europe. Tottenham are 7/4 outright favourites for the group win followed by Bayer Leverkusen at 9/4. Leverkusen may not have the goals in hem to push things all the way to a group win, while Monaco aren’t the force that they were a couple of seasons ago. So a great chance here for Tottenham to get through as group winners and their success will all be built on their great home form where it is easy seeing them take at least seven points from their nine available at Wembley (they are playing European games at Wembley this season because of size restrictions at White Hart Lane this season which is having a facelift).

Champions League Group by Group F Predictions and Preview

Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Sporting Lisbon, Legia Warsaw

A real heavyweight ding dong battle is set for Group F with Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund. They are no strangers to each other and what makes this interesting is that Dortmund have won their last three Champions League home games against Real Madrid. The Germans have done a lot of smart shopping over the summer and they may be worth a punt at 9/4 to go and win this group. Real Madrid aren’t great in Germany at all and while they will power their way through to the knockout stage of the competition, there may be just some value opposing them in the group stage here. Real Madrid are 8/15 to make the group win, with Sporting Lisbon and Legia Warsaw looking a little bit out of their depth in this one.

Champions League Group by Group G Predictions and Preview

Leicester, Porto, Club Brugge, FC Copenhagen

Leicester have fallen on their feet with just about the best draw that they could have gotten. They go up against Porto, Club Brugge and FC Copenhagen in their first venture into the UEFA Champions League. So some winnable matches for the Foxes that’s for sure and they have to make sure that they collect the points at home, because here is a steep learning curve to winning on the road in Europe. Leicester are 13/8 second favourites to win the group behind Porto who are a 6/4 punt. All of the value really here is on Porto, who have the experience in the competition and went well in last season’s event. That extra experience is going to count for a lot at the end of the day and they should be backed to win the group. Leicester can get through though at 1/2 to qualify because Club Brugge and Copenhagen aren’t up to all that much.

Champions League Group by Group H Predictions and Preview

Juventus, Sevilla, Lyon, Dinamo Zagreb

This is one of the more straightforward groups. There should be nothing to stop Juventus and Sevilla marching their way through to the next round from Group H. The question is, which one will win it? Juventus have made some big changes over the summer, paying out a lot of money for goal poacher Gonzalo Higuain and selling off Paul Pogba. Will those changes trip them up? Sevilla, last season’s UEFA Europa League winners are a great European side and really are a tough nut to crack on home soil. That should put them in the running and if they can get a point out of their trip to Juventus, they can top this group because they look to have more goals about them than Juve do. Sevilla are 14/5 to win the group with Juventus at 8/13. Lyon and Zagreb really aren’t threats to be concerned about.
