According to odds we should expect exciting match where win could go both ways. Yes, odds are set by stats, but we do not think that they reflect situation correctly. So what should we bet on for Olympique Nimes - Montpellier Hsc fixture? Simply, in our opinion the odds against Olympique Nimes win should be significantly lower. On paper those two sides are indeed pretty much of equal strength, but we should not underestimate the advantage of the home pitch. Olympique Nimes play really well in front of their fans and actually they take most of points at their own stadium. Also, we really believe in the hosts' attack. In our opinion this attack is very strong and capable of scoring two or three goals against any opposition. On the other hand Montpellier Hsc can create some problems for the hosts but they didn't look much motivated in the recent matches. So we believe, they can't resist against Olympique Nimes at Stade des Costieres
Therefore, we are taking home win in this one, as we think that odds against home win should not be bigger than 2.00 but it's 2.55. That's why we think there is huge value in backing home side.
As we already mentioned, we trust in home team's attack and we are betting on them to win at 2.55
Let's now say couple of words about over-under 2.5 goals bets. Bookmakers offer 2.15 for over 2.5 goals in this match, while for under 2.5 goals we can get 1.58.
As we can see bookmakers believe that today we should not see many goals at this match. At least their odds suggest so. Still, we can’t completely agree with their opinion and with offered odds.
Olympique Nimes really have terrible defense, and although Montpellier Hsc's attack is not the best in the world, we think they can score. This defense has been shaky all season long, so we do not see a reason why they would keep clean sheet in this match.
On the other hand Olympique Nimes really have good attack and this is the best part of their team. They have very good players in front, but they are also dangerous from the second plan, as they have some midfielders capable of scoring goals. Also, let’s not forget they can be very dangerous from set pieces, and they score fair amount of goals from corners and free kicks.
Therefore, in our opinion there is logic in backing over 2.5 goals, especially with such odds. Odds are to high in our opinion, so we are taking value bet – over 2.5 goals.
