Another duo of winners yesterday as Crvena Zvezda vs Cukaricki went a similar route to what I expected (though the away side actually won!) while in the NAP, the game was affected by snow and with a white ball the game became a little frantic – but, Krsko pressed late on and equalized in the 96th minute (there was 8 added minutes!) to secure a 3.2/1 double and the 5th winner in 6 tips this week!
Today there was a good deal of tempting games in Sweden where the goals seem to be flying in at the moment – but with odds a little shorter than I would like, and the fact the season is just 5 games old – I thought better of it, much like yesterday I decided to stick by my ‘No Cup’ rule – and that games ended 2-0, a goal short of the bet I had earmarked.
Another two games for today:
Wegberg Beeck vs Wattenscheid: Wattenscheid -1 Goal Handicap @ 21/20 (German Regionalliga West, 1800 KO – NAP)
This looks a good bet. The home side have lost 26/32 games this season, conceding nearly 90 goals in the process – that’s pretty much 3 per game! At home, 10 losses in 15, and 38 conceded. Wattenscheid are nearing the top 5 and with a few games to go could climb a little higher. They won this game 5-0 last time out in the reverse fixture – and for me look value @ -1 goal to do it again.
Schaffhausen vs Lausanne: BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 11/10 (Swiss Challenge League, 1730 KO)
The rule of thumb with me is always go with the gut – even though I feel the Lausanne win is equally good value.
Shaffhausen are very good at home and shocking away – but as mentioned at home they are excellent with 8 wins in 14 games, while scoring 27 and conceding 16. Lausanne on the other hand are brilliant away with 9 wins in 13. The key for me today is complacency – Lausanne are 7 points ahead with 2 games in hand over the nearest team, and much like Red Star yesterday, it may cause the players to ease off a little and allow the opponents to score and even win. With the home sides’ excellent record, they are certainly not to be discounted and I feel that if they get one of the first two goals this bet will sail in!
This pays in the region of 3.5/1!
Best of luck
