The 9/1 low risk and 20/1 medium risk bets have been posted a little earlier today – time for the biggie!
MK Dons Win + Over 2.5 Goals @ 10/3 (vs Shrewsbury 15:00 KO, English League One – Saturday)
Newly relegated MK Dons open their season against a Shrewsbury side that finished 20th last year. Shrewsbury’s goal tallies were; 58 for and a massive 79 against. MK Dons should be battling for the title come May and I don’t think they’ll be too concerned with the challenge Shrewsbury pose, although admittedly against much stronger opposition they conceded 69 goals last term. MK Dons should be much too strong for Shrewsbury but I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see BTTS in this one.
Matty Taylor Anytime Goalscorer @ 2/1 (vs Scunthorpe 15:00 KO, English League One – Saturday)
League Two’s top goalscorer last season with 27 goals. If Bristol Rovers are going to maintain their new position in the league they will need another strong showing from their talisman. Taylor has been strongly linked with championship new boys Wigan which shows the class he possesses, he is a forward of supreme quality and I don’t see the rise in leagues being an issue for him at all. 2/1 to score in 90 mins is always going to be value.
Stabaek vs Haugesund: Haugesund Win @ 11/5 (Norwegian Tippeligaen, 1630 KO – Sunday)
With Stabaek being very poor at home, and Haugesund chasing a top 6 place – I feel they will be a great bet! They have won 5 of their last 10 away games in all comps, and despite their poor goals conceded tally, they are a force going forward. Not a lot of high scorers, but a lot of players chip in and with over 30 goals they are one of the top scorers in the league!
Austria Vienna vs Rapid Vienna: Rapid Win + BTTS @ 7/2 (Austrian Bundesliga, 1530 KO – Sunday)
In the last 5 meetings between these two, Rapid have won 1-0, 3-0, 4-1 and 5-2. Both have begun fairly well, with Austria winning 2/2, and Rapid winning the first 5-0, then somehow losing to a Altach.
This is the big derby in Austria – and with both playing in the Europa League on Thursday night, neither have any advantage there. Both have decent squads, but for me Rapid’s is better. An interesting signing is Giorgi Kvilitaia – who has joined recently from Tblisi, where at just 23 he has scored at nearly a goal per game (24 in 29). Add in a host of others they have, including Brazilian Joelinton, who has begun his loan spell very well.
This pays around the 187/1 mark with Bet365.
Best of luck
