European Best Bets: Ramos could be key in Granada


BEN RAGG (@RaggysTips) shares his view on the best bets ahead of Monday night's European action. 

Granada vs Real Madrid | Monday 13th July 2020, 21:00 | La Liga TV

The first wagers I like for Monday evening are with Sergio Ramos and Real Madrid.  Los Blancos continued their formidable form on Friday with yet another win and yet another clean sheet to make it eight consecutive victories since the restart, shipping just two goals.

Granada also picked up a good result on Friday when Domingos Duarte’s 88th minute winner saw the Andalusians take maximum points away from Sociedad and keep their slim European hopes alive.

The first selection I like is Ramos to have 1+ shot on-target, which is available as a boosted price with PokerStars at 2/1.  Real’s skipper is a major threat from all set-pieces, whether it be aerially from corners and free kicks, or if it’s when he’s taking penalties or free kicks.

Ramos has also proven to be pretty efficient in the final-third, making the 2/1 good value.  Since the restart, he’s managed at least one shot on-target in five of his seven games, which represents around a 70% chance, and with 2/1 showing a 33% chance, this looks good value.

Granada also rank fourth for most fouls committed, avergaing 15.6 fouls per-game so I am also happy to take 27/10 for 2+ Ramos shots also available with PokerStars.

Inter Milan vs Torino | Monday 13th July 2020, 20:45 | Premier Sports

The third bet I like is over in Italy where Torino travel to Milan to face Inter. The hosts have struggled for consistency in recent weeks, while Torino will be wanting to build on their victory last time out. The visitors will take confidence from Inter’s poor performances in their last two outings.

Davide Massa is refereeing this one and the stats that standout for Massa are that he has awarded 14 penalties in the 16 games he has officiated this term and five in three since the restart. Torino have also conceded 17 penalties this season and Inter 14.

Torino have scored 10 of their 11 penalties this season in all competitions and Inter 10 of 12 so I’m happy to have a penalty to be scored at 9/4 with William Hill.

Best Bets

Granada vs Real Madrid – Sergio Ramos to have 1+ shot on-target (2/1 PokerStars)

Granada vs Real Madrid – Sergio Ramos to have 2+ shots (27/10 PokerStars)

Inter Milan vs Torino – Penalty to be scored (9/4 William Hill)

I got into betting just through my love of watching and playing sport and wanted to use my knowledge to make money. I mainly bet on player prop bets in football as I believe that’s where the most value is and also the odd poke on the 1x2, Goalscorer and BTTS-like markets. I am a Leicester City season ticket holder and love watching football and cricket live or on tv.
