I'm picking Hull to win/draw at Middlesbrough, most likely it's a draw tomorrow morning. Boro have scored the least amount of goals in the league this year, but they're known to step up their game once out of every ten. The funny thing is Hull haven't won in about ten games either. :-b

Interesting. I'm taking Portland. I had a six-game streak, then a seven-game streak, so watch out eight-game streak!

Earlier in the season Denver beat Portland pretty good and hung with the Blazers the following night until the final two minutes; all without Carmelo Anthony.
The Nuggets took it to the Blazers last month, with Anthony in the lineup.

I figure if the Nuggets can keep the game close, without Anthony, @ Portland, they'll be able to beat them with him tonight. ;-D

This only counts for the second leg, not the entire tie right? Hamburg go into this leg up 3-1, FWIW.

Anyway, this is going to be very tricky to predict. City play much better at home, but the problem with betting for them is they're volatile (they even lost 3-1 at home last weekend to a team that don't score well away). For the most part, they'll field a healthy squad, but they don't have their best striker not named Robinho (Craig Bellamy) and I'm afraid Mark Hughes can get his tactics wrong. Another problem is they have to push forward, which plays into Hamburg's hands carving them up on the counter and if not, they're a technically superior side (they beat City on lousy set-piece defending). So, they'll definitely have to keep better possession this time around.

I'd tip City tentatively to win the second leg, more or less because of the extra rest Robinho received. They have to win 2-0 to progress on away goals, 3-1 to force extra time.

Yeah, just for the second leg. From what I'm gathering from you, I'll stay away from this one as it could really go either way.
