A very quiet one from us yesterday, with none of our tipsters having anything up on the site. Resuming normal service today – Gareth has one tip posted and I have a value double!
Nice vs Monptellier: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (1930 KO, Ligue 1)
In Nice’s 8 home games this season so far – 6 have gone over 2.5 goals while 4 have won in this particular market. Their attacking nature, and weak defence make for some very good games! Montpellier on the other hand are fairly poor away from home, with one win in 9 in league and cup. In the last four, they have drawn 1-1 and 2-2, won 4-2 vs Lyon and then lost 3-2 to Lorient in the cup. They have really found their scoring boots, while the defence has stood still in terms of progression and improvement it would seem.
The last four meetings have ended 2-1, 1-1, 3-1 and 2-2. For me, a solid bet with two defensively weak yet high scoring attacking sides!
Elche vs Cordoba: Cordoba Draw No Bet @ 13/8 (1900 KO, Spanish Segunda)
The odds on this are rather high for a team who are top of the league!
Elche may have lost only 2 of 8 home games, but consider they haven’t played anyone as good as Cordoba, who have taken 3 wins and 2 draws from 8 away matches, while Elche have one of the worst home records in the league! Elche are also low scoring – 16 in 17 games this season, while over 20 conceded, including recently a 4-1 home defeat to Mirandes.
On the road, Cordoba keep it simple and tight at the back, and nick a few 1 goal wins. Very good at the back, strong at the front – creative in the middle. I can see a draw at worst here!
As a double this pays 5.3/1!
All the best!
