Another quiet week, with no tips on either Monday and Thursday, while the Premier League tips did not go brilliantly Tuesday or Wednesday. Liverpool and Newcastle both put in shabby performances while Portsmouth also failed to score a 2nd.
Today – a Ligue 2 double as there is little else on:
Clermont vs Auxerre: Clermont Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 1/1 (1900 KO)
Clermont are on an amazing run of wins at home – 5 wins in a row and 7 and a draw in their last 8 – but most importantly they have scored 2+ in 7 of those 8. Auxerre have been pretty poor away – lost 3 in a row and conceded 2+ in 7 of 15 away games in league and cup.
For those who cannot get the market, Clermont to win is currently the same price and for me is just as good.
Nimes vs Niort: Nimes Over 1.5 Team Goals @ 6/5 (1900 KO)
Another side in fine home form – scoring very freely at the moment and facing a Niort team who struggle for wins – drawing 14 of their 24 games in the league this season. In this fixture, the home side has won 10 of the last 11 games and in general has been high scoring – Nimes have scored at least 3 in the last five home games against them. They are still in the bottom 3 after a points deduction, but have really picked up the pace of recent times and are looking good.
Same again – price for the win is around the same, and offers equally good value.
This pays around 3.3/1.
Best of luck
