Football Tips // 25.07.16


With the weekend almost garnering a 20/1 fourfold (but falling at the first hurdle, only for the other three to win!) – we move to Monday and the start of our 2nd Rolling Acca of the season – the challenge is to get from £10 to £100 in 5 bets, a Monday-Friday thing.

Today, there were three games that I considered, but two fell by the wayside due to the fact that they were a little unpredictable, in ways of it being the first game of the season in one, and a Finnish game that could potentially be either 0-0 or 3-2.

The game I’ve plumped for is in the Finnish 1st Division. Two teams that are high scoring, and also concede plenty:

AC Oulu vs Haka: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 5/6 (1630 KO)

This was immediately the bet as soon as I saw the goals for/against stats. Both have scored in excess of 20 in 14 games (29 for Oulu, 23 for Haka) and also conceded more than a goal per game (15 for Oulu, 21 for Haka). In Oulu’s 7 home games – 5 wins, and 16 scored, with 7 conceded. Just 3 BTTS + Over 2.5’s, but Haka are a strong away team so far this season.

They have scored 12 and conceded 10 – with a total of 5 BTTS + Over 2.5’s in their 7 games away.

These two also have a good record for goals – the last 5 being 2-2 in May, 2-1 last September and a the previous 3 were 1-1, 1-0 and 4-2.

Finnish games are renowned for being high odds when it comes to BTTS or Over 2.5 – the other game I looked at in the Veikkausliiga was 6/5 for BTTS and 8/5 for Over 2.5 Goals…which says something! This one is 8/15 for BTTS, and 3/5 for Over 2.5 – the combined price on 365 and William Hill is around 5/6.

£10 pays around £18.33.

Later on today we should have a preview for the Champions League qualifying this week, as well as a Europa League one too if Bet365 hurry up and price the markets that I have picked out. Accumulators should follow Tuesday morning – all being well.

Best of luck
