It’s been a few days since our last set of tips – which faired so-so. 2 wins and a void from 4 tips over 1/1, and there was an option with a bit more certainty that ended 3/4 – Colchester losing to a team that had not won away since the start of December!
Two tips for this evening in France and Holland – both handicaps and both seemingly very good value:
Bastia vs Monaco: Monaco -1 Goal Handicap @ 5/4 (Ligue 1, 1945 KO)
Bastia are joint bottom of the table, and have won only 3 of 12 home games! 6 have been draws, but the overriding factor here today is that nobody is playing anywhere near the level that Monaco are. Even mid-table sides they are putting 5+ past, and away from home they put 4 past Marseille! They have scored 75 in 25 games, which is unreal – even PSG at their Ibra-best wouldn’t hit those numbers!
Achilles vs Jong Ajax: Jong Ajax -1 Goal Handicap @ 1/1 (Dutch Erste, 1900 KO)
Jong Ajax are doing extremely well this season, with some of the best home form in the country and sitting pretty in the top 4 of the 2nd tier in Holland. Obviously they can’t actually get promoted, but it shows the young talent they have in their ranks is coming along well. Achilles are bottom, and despite 5 points in their last 3 home games – I can’t see past a heavy Ajax win – 7-1 and 4-1 being the last two results between the sides.
The double pays around 3.5/1, but both fantastic singles or additions to any bets!
Best of luck
