This should be very interesting match between two sides of approximately equal quality. In our opinion there are reasons to back both teams, so in such situations it is normal that home team are considered as slight favorites. We can agree with offered odds, but still we think there is value in backing home win.
Why? Well, we think home pitch could be decisive factor in this match. Home team will want to take all three points in front of their fans and will not settle for a draw. So, we’re going with a home win from 1.94 odds as we see value in this bet.
Although, we’re backing home team, we still believe the visitors could cause some damage to the hosts. The visitors are regularly scoring goals and we wouldn’t be surprised if they score at least one here. So it's better to stick small stakes for the match.
Even bookmakers are not sure what to think about goals in this match, so we have basically fifty-fifty situation. Bookmakers offer 1.81 for over 2.5 goals in this match, while for under 2.5 goals we can get 1.83. In bookmakers opinion this game could easily go in over or under 2.5 goals. We understand why today we have such odds, as we will not learn too much from the stats.
We have two opposite teams, one with more attacking approach and style, and one with more cautious one. So, there is logic in set odds.
But, we see value in backing under 2.5 goals at 1.83 . In our opinion this is important match for both of those sides, and both of teams will try to avoid defeat. When we have situation where two teams want to avoid defeat, and draw is an option for them, then we can’t expect attacking football from the very first minute. In our opinion odds for under 2.5 goals should be significantly lower, not because of the stats, but because of the circumstances surrounding this match. In this case there is huge value in taking under 2.5 goals, so we are going with this bet.
