5 Brilliant Betting Picks For Thursday

Here below is an in-depth analysis of five matches that will be played on August 18.

03:30 Corinthians vs Atletico-GO

In the first leg of the Quarterfinals of the Copa do Brasil, Atletico-GO who sit 19th in the Brazil Serie A made the most of their home turf advantage to beat Corinthians 2-0. We expect third placed Corinthians to strive overturn this deficit.

My prediction: over 1.5 match goals

19:30 Ferencravos vs Shamrock Rovers 

Whoever loses this two-legged contest will drop into the Europa Conference League, both teams will be focused on trying to earn a rare spot in the group stages of European football's secondary competition.

My prediction: over 0.5 goals before half-time 

21:45 Villarreal vs Hajduk Split

Villarreal had a scintillating run to the UEFA Champions League semi-finals last season. Unai Emery's side got off to the perfect start this term as they shook off their pre season rust and scored 3 second half goals capping off a stellar second half Villarreal performance.

My prediction: Villarreal will win

21:45 Westham vs Viborg

Viborg finished 7th in last season’s Danish Superliga. Moyes' men are clear favourites to prevail from this tie, their first continental fixture of the season. They were the Europa League semi-finalists last season. 

My prediction: Westham will win

22:00 Florentina vs FC Twente

Last time out Ex R Madrid striker Luka Jovic brilliance continued as Florentina put on a spirited fight in a 3-2 opening day victory against newly-promoted Cremonese.

My prediction: Florentina will win
