Going through one of those spells where everything picked just goes wrong – Nimes won 1-0 last night and missed a host of chances, while Clermont lost 2-1 after playing probably their poorest game of the season. This weekend I have picked 4 very good home teams and backed them in a handicap bet. They are playing poor sides who have pretty shocking away records, so here’s hoping this works!
‘At a Glance’
- Cagliari -1 @ 11/10 vs Entella
- Northampton -1 @ 13/10 vs York
- Alessandria -1 @ 6/5 vs Lumezzane
- Alaves -1 @ 6/5 vs Llagostera
As doubles – both pay 3.8/1 (Saturday/Sunday), while as an Accumulator it pays 22.3/1
Cagliari vs Entella: Cagliari -1 Goal Handicap @ 11/10 (Saturday – Serie B, 1400 KO)
Cagliari have won 11/12 at home, with 6 being by -1. They are a free-scoring team that should dispose of an Entella side on the back of 3 away 2-0 losses in a row and having scored in just 3/11 away games this season – losing 6/11. They have played twice already this season and the results have been 3-1 and 5-0 to Cagliari.
Northampton vs York: Northampton -1 Goal Handicap @ 13/10 (Saturday – League Two, 1500 KO)
Northampton are top of the form table for home games – 10 wins in 14, with 8 in their last 10.
They face a York team who have lost 8 of 14 away games this season, which included a run of 4 unbeaten at the start which means they have lost 8 in their last 10 and conceded plenty to boot. In the corresponding fixture last season, Northampton won 3-0.
Alessandria vs Lumezzane: Alessandria -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/5 (Sunday – Lega Pro Group A, 1400 KO)
Alessandria are the best home side in the league – 7 wins and 2 draws in 10 at home. Lumezzane are among the worst away sides – losing 8 of 10 this season. Last seasons corresponding game was a 3-1 win for Alessandria.
CD Alaves vs Llagostera: Alaves -1 Goal Handicap @ 6/5 (Sunday – Spanish Segunda, 1600 KO)
Alaves have won 7 and drawn 3 of 12 home games – one of the top 4 home sides in the league.
However the huge thing here is they face a Llagostera side who have lost 10 of 11 away games!! Scoring just 5, conceding 25.
Some of the stats on show here are staggering and given the prices, amazing value!
My top double for the weekend is Cagliari & Alaves @ 3.7/1 – while the Saturday/Sunday double prices as well as the Acca price have been quoted above.
Best of luck
