European Competition Football Tips

Top Europe predictions

Bad Man Betting is your ultimate resource for accurate and informed predictions around Europe’s top football leagues and competitions. We offer comprehensive insights into La Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga, and Ligue 1 matches. Our experts provide in-depth analysis on team form, head to head records, and any other trends or statistics that may aid in making informed decisions when placing bets. 

Betting on La Liga

La Liga is known for its distinct style and technicality. Possession-oriented play and attacking mindedness are the features most associated with this league. The league is home to European powerhouses Real Madrid and Barcelona, who are favourites for the title and the likes of Atletico Madrid, and Villareal trying to qualify for the Champions League. Spain’s premier division is home to some of the world’s best players including current Ballon d’Or holder Karim Benzema, Robert Lewandowski and Luka Modric. There are a multitude of exciting betting opportunities for those with knowledge of Spanish football odds and current tendencies within La Liga.

Betting on Serie A

Italian football was previously known for its defensive-oriented approach in the 90s and early 2000s. However, the 21/22 season saw an average of 2.87 goals per game which was more than the Premier League at (2.87.) Despite the amount of goals, the Italian top division is still known as one of the most tactical in the world. Although Italian sides have not won the Champions League of late, the division still boasts strong sides including Napoli, Ac Milan, Roma and Inter. The league further boasts a mix of established and upcoming stars including Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Rafael Leao. Statistics for 21/22 showed that a home win at 39% was slightly more probable than an away victory (35%) with draws a distant 3rd at 26%.

Betting on Bundesliga

The Bundesliga is one of the most watched and most exciting football leagues in Europe. The league consists of 18 teams competing against each other in a season-long battle for top honours. Although Bayern Munich remains the dominant force, the rest of the German domestic league is just as competitive and entertaining with big sides such as RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund fighting at the top of the league.

The attacking style of football emphasised in the Bundesliga makes it an especially enjoyable spectacle for fans to witness. In the 21/22 season the league saw 3.12 goals per match.  In recent years, the league has grown a reputation for its emphasis on youth, with even British based youngsters, such as Jamal Musiala, making the move to Germany to play top level football.

Betting on Ligue 1

French Ligue 1 is one of the most profitable competitions for soccer-betting as its long season, combined with ever-changing team forms and higher odds, provide bettors with an abundance of exciting betting opportunities.

Marketed as ‘the league of talents’, Ligue 1 boasts a mix of expensive imports as well as young stars who are likely to make the jump to Europe’s biggest teams. The dominant force in France is PSG, backed by Qatar Sports Investments, although Monaco and Lille have picked up titles recently. The league also boasts France’s only Champions League winning side, Marseille. The 21/22 season saw an average of 2.81 goals per match.

Considering the plethora of talent within France’s top division along with its relatively high odds and margins compared to other European leagues, it’s no surprise that betting on Ligue 1 can be both lucrative and entertaining at once. From backing contenders like PSG achieving glory both domestically and on the European front to discovering hidden gems throughout the season’s fixture list, there are plenty of compelling stories waiting to unfold each week in France’s premier football competition – making it a must watch for fans across europe.
