With many leagues on winter breaks, it’s been a very quiet few weeks for us after a busy Christmas period. Friday brings the return of French and Dutch 2nd tiers – as well as the Turkish league – two of which I feel I have found terrific value in.
Just two tips for today – making a 5/1 double:
Emmen vs Jong Ajax: Jong Ajax Win @ 17/10 (Dutch Erste, 1900 KO)
This is a battle of defence against attack – Emmen have only conceded 6 times in 9 home fixtures this season, while Ajax are by far and away the top scorers in the league. With first team players like El Ghazi, Zivkovic and Vaclav Cerny making regular appearances for the away side, it is no surprise they are doing so well – but even so, they have a fantastic chance of continuing their decent away form, which includes 3 wins on the spin. Justin Kluivert, son on the one and only Patrick – has begun to make a big impact there, a pacey right winger – he could also have a say on this one.
Bursaspor vs Trabzonspor: Bursaspor Win @ 5/4 (Turkish Super Lig, 1700 KO)
Bursaspor have returned to the side they were a couple of seasons ago – very threatening and decent at the back. They sit 5th, and face a troubled Trabzonspor side who are really struggling for any sort of form. The home side have won 5 of 8, losing just 1 this season. The away side have scored just 3 on their travels and have lost 5 of 8. 5/4 a fab price!
As mentioned, this pays around 5/1 – if you wanted a high price double on these, Bursaspor win to nil @ 10/3 and Jong Ajax win/BTTS @ 10/3 are good value going off the above, and at 17/1 is a nicely priced bet!
Best of luck!
