Europa Conference League Best Bets: Thursday, March 16th

We enter into the return legs of the Europa Conference League round of 16 this Thursday and there are still some interesting fixtures to look forward to. Some matchups are far from over, while the others look settled already. However it may be, we are set for an exciting round to the round of 16.

With the above in mind, here are the best value bets to go with ahead of the latest round of action.

In this article:

West Ham vs AEK Larnaca Preview

Thursday, March 16th, 20:00 (UK Time)

West Ham United have been different in the Europa Conference League all season, claiming wins in all of their games so far. However, the performances in the Premier League have not been great but they are going strong in Europe. Having taken a two-goal lead into this game at the London Stadium, we can’t look beyond another win for David Moyes’ side.

On the other hand, AEK Larnaca have their work cut out after last week’s defeat at home. They warmed up for this reverse fixture with another home loss to Apollon and things are really not looking bright for the Cypriot side.

West Ham vs AEK Larnaca Best Bet

The Hammers are the bookies’ favourites and we are favouring them strongly to do the needful. Everything points to them doing well in front of their home crowd. Having scored two on the road, we are expecting a decent amount of goals once again in London.

  • Selection: Over 2.5 Goals
  • Best Odds: 1.75 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 8/10

Villarreal vs Anderlecht Preview

Thursday, March 16th, 20:00 (UK)

Villarreal are seeking to win another European title for the second time in three seasons. The entertaining first leg at the Lotto Park ended 1-1, but they still remain firm favourites to proceed, especially with eight of the previous nine seasons seeing at least one major continental trophy lifted by a Spanish club.

The Yellow Submarines’ strong home record in Europe (W3 D1) favours them strongly and the form of Samuel Chukwueze should be able to propel the side to a win.

Villarreal vs Anderlecht Best Bet

Anderlecht are a shadow of their former selves both home and abroad and were lucky to force a draw at home last Thursday. Since winning the UEFA Cup against Valencia 40 years ago, their record against Spanish oppositions (W1 D2 L2) further underlines the improbability of their progression here.

  • Selection: Villarreal to Win
  • Best Odds: 1.44 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Nice vs Sheriff Tiraspol Preview

Thursday, March 16th, 20:00 (UK)

Nice have been solid in recent weeks and they did turn up in the first leg last week to claim a slim 1-0 win. Manager Didier Digard’s side will be hoping to reach the quarterfinals of a UEFA competition for the first time since 1959/60. The Eaglets conceded a late goal at Nantes at the weekend and will need to eradicate those errors if they want to see off this tricky Sheriff side.

Elsewhere, Sheriff come into this fixture with much confidence after a 1-0 win over FC Bălți on Monday, but they have their work cut out for them in France. It would take something special to see the Moldovan outfit progress and it is understandable why the odds are not in their favour.

Nice vs Sheriff Tiraspol Best Bet

Nice have been formidable at home this term and have only lost three times on their home turf in Ligue 1. The French outfit are unbeaten in their last five games at home and I am backing them to claim yet another win in front of their home crowd.

  • Selection: Nice to Win
  • Best Odds: 1.40 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Slovan Bratislava vs Basel Preview

Thursday, March 16th, 17:45 (UK)

Slovan Bratislava played their hearts out at St. Jakob-Park last Thursday. Coming back twice to nick a draw in a game we tipped the Swiss side to win comfortably. With that knowledge in mind now, this fixture still has a lot in stock for us and it is far from over. Vladimir Weiss and co have won just two of their last seven knockout matches (D4 L1) at home and will need to wade off some nervousness after the weekend’s home loss to MSK Zilina.

Slovan Bratislava vs Basel Best Bet

Basel know they have to raise their game if they want to go past their bogey side. FCB are unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions and that should serve as a motivation going into this tight fixture. Having faltered in the domestic league already, Basel will be aiming for progression at the expense of the Slovakian side.

  • Selection: Yes on BTTS
  • Best Odds: 1.66 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 6/10

Sivasspor vs Fiorentina Preview

Thursday, March 16th, 17:45 (UK)

Sivasspor proved to be a difficult nut to crack in the first leg at Stadio Artemio Franchi in the Europa Conference League last 16 last Thursday, but the Viola still managed to nick a 1-0 win late on. The Turkish side are struggling to find rhythm in the crucial stage of their season with no wins in their past three games. They have also lost two of their four European games at Yeni 4 Eylul this season (W1 D1), although a comprehensive 3-0 win over Cluj last time could be the catalyst for another top performance.

The Italians, on the other hand, have hit top form in the past few games. The Viola are currently on a run of five consecutive wins and they have kept three clean sheets over that same period.

Sivasspor vs Fiorentina Best Bet

Fiorentina’s record against Turkish opposition stands at (W8 L1) and that is enough motivation to approach this tie full of confidence. The free-scoring Viola enjoy traveling, winning each of their last three UECL away games ‘to nil’ and scoring 10 goals during the process.

  • Selection: Fiorentina to Win
  • Best Odds: 1.60 (bet365)
  • Stakes: 7/10

Odds via bet365 as of 15:00 March 15th 2023. Odds may now differ.
