Quite a disappointing day yesterday – one win which was the Romanian game going BTTS, which ended 2-2. Fiorentina were a corner short of the 7 needed, while Basel scored in the first 7 minutes but then went to pot for the rest of it, losing 2-1. Copenhagen dominated the game but drew 0-0 in for me the shock of the day!
Today looks decent – 2 games selected:
Cagliari vs Ascoli: Cagliari -1 Goal Handicap @ 21/20 (Serie B, 1930 KO – NAP)
Cagliari have been the ever-trusting home side in the Italian Serie B – 7 wins from 7 and plenty of goals! 5 -1 goal wins in their last 10 games, in which they have won 7.
Ascoli away are dreadful – 5 losses in 6 games, four of which were to nil and 3 by -1 goal. In total 8 losses in 13 games, and quite frankly they are probably going down, especially at this rate!
1/3 match price looks very short, but 21/20 on the handicap is amazing value!
Crystal Palace vs Sunderland: Palace Win + Over 2.5 Goals @ 7/5 (Premier League, 2000 KO)
Palace have not quite been as good as last season, and have struggled a little at home so far after playing a good deal of the better sides. 4 wins in 8 in all competitions, but that includes harsh 1 goal losses to Arsenal and Man City and a 3-1 loss to West Ham. They also drew 0-0 with Man Utd. Sunderland on the other hand have lost 5/6 away games and are conceding on average 3 per game away from the Stadium of Light, scoring on average a goal per game.
Weather this ends 3-0 or 2-1, I think there will be plenty of goals! Palace won 4-1 in the last meet, while Yohan Cabaye is an instrumental figure for them. Wilfried Zaha and Bolasie have also been very good this season. 14 scored and 12 conceded – pretty low return for Pardew’s side but I think this will be a different game that hopefully Palace will use as a confidence booster and resign Sunderland to yet another loss!
This pays 4/1 as a double – while both represent good value as singles.
Best of luck!
