Apologies for the timing of these – since it’s my birthday today it was a rather late one last night, and in turn a late one this morning!
Four tips for today, with a mix of prices:
Caen vs Nice: Nice Win @ 7/5 (French Ligue 1, 1400 KO)
Nice are in good form – and despite Thursdays’ loss to Salzburg, they remain a solid bet weather home or away! 7/5 is a top price, against a side that are really struggling in the bottom three.
Hull vs Southampton: Southampton -1 Goal Asian Handicap @ 11/10 (PL, 1415 KO)
Southampton are on a huge high after Thursdays’ win over Inter, and with multiple players rested they should have a fairly fresh side. Austin and Fonte should return, while MOTM Van Dijk will be a starter for sure! Hull are in a bad way – lost the last 5 league games and taken a few beatings. They have a long injury list, which has had an affect, but against a defensive sound Southampton I can see them losing again.
Akhisar vs Fenerbache: Fenerbache -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/4 (Turkish Super Lig, 1600 KO)
Again, after Thursdays’ impressive win over Man Utd, confidence will be sky high! Fener face a side sat in the bottom three who, despite a recent upturn in form – should be beaten today. With Van Persie rested, and the game being at home (on Thursday) – the away side should be reasonably fresh and with the top four not far off, they should win today.
AZ vs Ajax: Ajax Win @ 1/1 (Dutch Eredivisie, 1330 KO)
AZ vs Ajax is usually a cracking game – and today I think it will go the same way. Ajax are in good form, and with both playing Thursday there is no advantage to either, although Ajax were at home which means less travel. Ajax as mentioned are in hot form, and with AZ defensively frail, I think Ajax will win.
An accumulator containing all four pays in the region of 24/1, while my best double from those would have to be Southampton and Nice @ 4/1
Best of luck!
