It’s been a quiet week so far with just the odd few football tips mixed in with mainly Wimbledon tips. Today is back to normal – a few leagues are starting back up again in places like Romania, while football continues in Iceland, Kazakhstan and Norway. Just 3 games today – all Evens or above:
1. HJK Helsinki Win @ 13/10 vs Rovaniemi (1630 KO, Finnish Veikkausliiga) (NAP)
HJK really have the wood over Rovaniemi. In the last 5 meetings away, they have won four. In the last 5 meetings overall, they have won four. They faced off twice in April, HJK winning 3-1 and 2-0. Rovaniemi have been a side we have backed several times only for them to draw, with some poor performances. This is 1st vs 2nd, so should be a good game but I believe Helsinki will win.
2. Astana Win @ Half Time @ 7/5 (Kazakstan Premier League, 1400 KO)
Astana are one of the best in the league, and face a Tobol side who have lost 3 of their last 5 games. Form is hard to go off, as they have played two of the other top sides. The rest of the league is pretty average, with the odd shocking side. In these two’s last couple of meetings, Astana have won 4-0 both times, leading 2-0 and 1-0 at Half Time. HT-FT has bitten us in the backside a few times recently, with teams we back winning and winning well, only to blow a big lead against poor opposition. Remember this is only to be leading at HT – so if they are winning @ 45 minutes, the bet is won.
3. Stjarnan-Valur BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 (Icelandic Premier League, 2100 KO)
Stjarnan are in pretty poor form, losing a couple of games recently against poor opposition, and they do not look like the team of last season when they finished in the top two. Valur score a fair few goals but also concede a few – in the last 5 meetings BTTS has landed in all 5, while over 2.5 goals has landed in 2. Expecting a high scoring affair, with both needing a win.
As a treble, this pays 10/1, with my preferred double being the top two @ 5/1
Best of luck
