Morning all

Of the four games picked on the weekend, just one won. Two actually won, but fell a goal short of the -1 handicap needed and Alessandria got a late red card and blew a 1-0 lead when they looked like getting a 2nd. Really been one of those patches of poor form that makes you want to cry!

I’ve found two good bets for tonight – dipping under evens for the first time in a while:

Wil vs Schaffhausen: Wil Win @ 4/5 (Swiss Challenge League, 1845 KO)

Wil have won 5/8 at home, including their last four in a row – scoring 19 and conceding 12.

Schaffhausen have lost 8 of their 9 away games, scoring just 5 and conceding 16.

BTTS + Over 2.5 was tempting as their last few games have been brimmed full of goals, but because of the away form of Schaffhausen I’ve gone against that idea.

Sporting Lisbon vs Rio Ave: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (Portuguese Primeira Liga, 1900 KO)

Sporting’s home record is exemplary – in their last 15 games – 12 wins (one in extra time), 2 draws and a loss. 12 wins and 1 draw have come in a row! However they do tend to concede, with them conceding in 11 of those 15 games including against the likes of Tondela, Moreirense, Academica and Skenderbeu – all very poor teams.

Rio Ave have a brilliant record recently for BTTS, especially away from home! Only one failure in the league, while in all competitions 11/14 away from home, with two fails coming in cups against either much weaker or much stronger teams. All but one of those went over 2.5 goals as well.

If you cannot get the market, a simple BTTS pays 21/20 and that has landed in this fixture in 5 of the last 6 meetings. Over 2.5 has landed as well in 4/6, with a few very high scorers!

Double pays just over 3/1.

Best of luck
