Another new week begins – just 12 days until the new season kicks off! We will be starting our preview of each of the English leagues soon, with tips mixed in inbetween if there is some good value. Yesterday started so well – Beroe and Jagiellonia winning, Rosenborg 2-0 up inside 15 minutes and Fjolnir 2-0 up inside 25. Rosenborg did not manage a 3rd, while Fylkir could not muster a single goal either, so just the 2/4 but some could not get BTTS + Over 2.5 for that game so went with over 2.5 @ 4/5 and got an 8/1 acca – so kind of a good day.
Today – 2 tips. One in a league we don’t venture into often as there are basically 2 teams and the rest are complete trash. Anyway…
1. Liepaja-Skonto Riga Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 (Latvian Virsliga, 1700 KO – NAP)
Liepaja should be favourites for this as they have won 4 of the last 5 home meetings, and play at home this time. In the last 7 meetings, 5 have gone over. The last ended 1-0 in May, but previous to that there were results of 2-1, 3-1 and 3-2 this year. Riga conceded 9 midweek in Europe (to Debrecen) so will be pretty shakey at the back after a mauling of that sort. 2nd vs 3rd – should be a very even game. BTTS + Over 2.5 would have been preferable but they are very few markets on this game.
2. Norrkoping Draw No Bet @ 11/10 vs Hammarby (Swedish Allsvenskan, 1800 KO)
Norrkoping have lost once away in 7 games this season – and usually nick them by the odd goal. They are in fantastic form this season, and have won 3, drawn 3 and lost 1 away. Hammarby have lost 2 games at home, winning four and drawing the one game. This will be very close, but I fully expect the away side to come away with at least a point. They won the fixture 1-0 back in May, and have won 4 of the last 5 meetings, although the other three were back around 2010
After a packed weekend – this is all there is for today.
Best of luck
