Football Tips // 12.05.16


After a great start yesterday – the double came oh so close to winning. The blame? Salzburg – they put out a full 2nd team and their odds for -1 Handicap went from 6/5 to 3/1 as the match price changed from 1/2 to 11/10. They won 2-1 after trailing, but it wasn’t enough. Trelleborgs/Orgryte ended 2-2, so BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals flew in @ 6/4.

Today – a BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals double:

Portsmouth vs Plymouth: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 13/8 (League Two Playoffs, 1945 KO)

These games are either very cagey, or full of goals. Very little inbetween.

Both are in good form, and both will go into this one with confidence. Their last 5 meets have been full of goals, with 4 winning in this market, and the 5th was a 3-0. Plymouth won this fixture a few weeks ago, so they have the slight edge. Both are scoring well, but equally conceding poor goals.

I fancy this to be a corker!

Groningen vs Heracles: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 (Dutch Eredivisie, Europa League Playoffs – 1730 KO)

Another game I think will be full of goals – and at a great price! Groningen went on a 6 game losing run, but recovered after winning 5 of the last 6 to get into this playoff. Heracles had an on-off season, doing well at times then dropping points at an alarming rate. I have no confidence in either back four, and with previous results of 2-1, 2-1, 2-2, 3-1 and 3-1 in their last 5, I think there will also be plenty of goals in this game too.

The double pays around 4.4/1

Best of luck
