Today is one that often brings out the BTTS tips, as well as Over 3.5 Goals but today is mainly match result – nothing statistically taking my fancy in the Overs markets, and just one in the BTTS market.
1. Nancy-Niort BTTS @ 11/10 (French Ligue 2, 1900 KO) (NAP)
Nancy’s record for BTTS at home reads 4/5 in their last 5 games. Niort’s away record is 3/5 for BTTS, and in their last 5 meetings, all 5 have been BTTS (although 2 were 11 years ago). The most recent three games have all had a fair few goals, with a 3-1 and a 2-2.
2. Troyes Win @ 6/5 vs Orleans (French Ligue 2, 1900 KO)
Troyes have eased off a bit recently, losing a couple of games away from home, but I feel they will beat Orleans like they did earlier this season. Troyes have won 3/5 overall and 2/5 away – but like I said, they should win this, and move 3 points closer to promotion. Orleans have lost 4 of their last 5 home games, so are in poor form.
3. Lok Zagreb Win @ 11/10 vs Osijek (Croatian HNL, 1700 KO)
Zagreb are in good home form, with 3 wins in their last 5, while Osijek have lost 4 of their last 5 away fixtures. In terms of recent meetings, Lok Zagreb won 3/3 in 2014, and 3 of the last 5 meetings at home with this team.
4. Volendam Win @ 11/8 vs Maastricht (Dutch Erste, 1900 KO)
Volendam are fighting for promotion still, despite a poor run in form which has seen several defeats, including a 7-0 loss to NEC – in fairness they have had some hard games including NEC, Roda and Graafschap – the latter they won 2-0 on monday. Both have iffy form, but Volendam have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, the last of which was a 3-0 win in the back end of last season.
Altogether this pays around 22/1, with William Hill – so you will get differing prices wherever you bet. Nancy-Niort BTTS is my NAP – really think that one will have both scoring quite easily.
Best of luck
