1/2 on the football yesterday, and 3/5 on the FA Cup tips – Eastleigh to Qualify is still running so it could be 4/6, but it could have been oh so beautiful had Newcastle taken their chances and Northampton held their lead for another 10 or so minutes!
Sticking with my home double for today – with all things considered it looks a great bet as both teams are good at home and facing teams in poor away form.
Feirense vs Sporting Lisbon B: Feirense Win @ 23/20 (Portuguese Segunda, 1115 KO)
Up until recently, Lisbon B had the best away record in the league, but four losses in their last 5 games away from home means they sit about 6th in the form table – defensively found out in my opinion. They play the 2nd best home team in the league who are looking strongly for promotion (as B teams can’t get promoted it doesn’t matter where Porto B, Benfica B, Lisbon B or Braga B finish). Feirense have won 7 of 12 at home, including 4 in their last 5. Strong at the back, and get the goals needed going forward. A team I have backed numerous times before – and at over Evs, a fab price!
Cordoba vs Mallorca: Cordoba Win @ 21/20 (Spanish Segunda, 1815 KO)
I will keep this one simple.
Cordoba – best home team in the league with 7 wins in 10 games. 15 scored, 9 conceded. Very boring but usually win 1/2-0
Mallorca – winless on the road with 4 draws and 6 losses. Scored 7, conceded 15. Often lose to nil, or if draw, 0-0.
A close game is my prediction, with a 1-0 or 2-0 scoreline expected.
This pays 3.5/1 and for me is a cracking bet!
All the best
