INTERNATIONAL breaks mean the kind of matches and markets we're on the look-out for are few and far between. Tonight though sees a friendly match that might well be worth having a shot at.

We don't like to get involved in friendlies too often but the Swedish game between GIF Nike and Lunds at 5pm could well provide some value

GIF NIKE v LUNDS, WEDNESDAY, 5pm (in-play on Bet365)

Lunds are a third-tier Swedish side who narrowly failed to get promoted to the second level last season by being beaten in a play-off. They've brought in a lot of new faces since then and appear to have put together a decent outfit who have been banging the goals in during pre-season.

Lunds have hit 32 goals in six matches, though they did lose their last match 4-1 to stronger opposition. Lunds have though faced off against two sides who play in GIF Nike's league – recording a 4-0 victory against Torns IF and a thumping 8-1 win over Rosengaard where they were leading 4-0 at half-time.

GIF Nike are a fourth tier side and have had a mixed pre-season. Where this gets interesting is GIF have also played the same two sides Lunds scored freely against and were beaten 2-1 in their latest match by Torns IF and also suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Rosengaard. GIF have also played a newly-promoted side to their own league, BW90, where they went down to another defeat losing 3-2.

These two sides last faced off in a cup match in 2011 where Lunds recorded a 4-1 victory and from what has gone on in pre-season so far this match shouldn't be far off that result. Lunds have a strong squad assembled with most of the players who have been bagging their goals available and will be looking to record another good victory in what is their penultimate friendly before the league action gets going.

Over 1.5 half-time goals @ Evs
Lunds over 2.5 & 3.5 Team Goals @ around Evs & 2/1

Good Luck.. BP

  15. Striker 11 years ago

    Damn only just saw this so missed out! But well done again BP :)

  16. robbie d 11 years ago

    Another good selection. Annoyed that I missed it, but look forward to the next one.

  17. Charlie 11 years ago

    Nice work again BP. Shame I missed it this time round but not to worry will catch the next one.

  18. Craig alves 11 years ago

    aye paul, no bad understudy you’ve gt yourself :) every time I see BP thread he’s got himself winners.

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Craig, BP’s good. The annoying thing is he knows it and fairly rubs it in if he has a winner and I don’t. So I’d say we’re level pegging tonight and good for both of us to provide some winners.

  19. conor 11 years ago

    betfair didnt have this match

  20. Craig alves 11 years ago

    bet365 is tge bookie I use mostly just for the in-play markets and quick payout, usually have every game priced up that’s on other sites

  21. Greg Browning 11 years ago

  22. robert miller 11 years ago

    BP, do you keep records and if so you must be well ahead on a level stake basis so far

    asking purely out of curiousity

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Robert, bumming up BP’s banned!

    • robert miller 11 years ago

      sorry Paul!!!! i already know your super single record is top drawer over the years!!!!!

      i,m in a complimentary mood tonite as summer arrives at the weekeend!!!!!!

      remember to shift those clocks forward team he he

  23. bounty punter 11 years ago

    Well Lunds did what was expected of them and it’s happy days with a 3 out of 3 from a friendly! Like I said earlier friendlies will only be recommended if there’s some real good stats to back it up and this was one of those games.

    If you’re wanting to follow the bets that will be posted from BP (or B/H as Greg seems to call us) then you really need a Bet365 account. The majority of bets will be with them as they seem willing to take on the kind of games we like.

    Good to see a few of you got on this and that even Mr Fixit managed a few winners today. Remember and keep some of the ‘bummin up’ for him now and again lads, he needs it, he is a Bankie after all.


  24. Greg Browning 11 years ago

    Haha, it was only last night I realised that I’d been calling you B/H, had bounty hunter in my head! I’m sure you’ve been called worse! :) cheers again – keep then coming
