THE Night Owl sees me in Colombia and although there’s no such thing as a perfect bet, this one might qualify as a pretty damn good spot and certainly looks like a chink in the bookies' armour.
BOYACÁ CHICÓ VS. DEPORTES TOLIMA (11.30pm):
I’ve said it before but as SA betting goes, the prices for goals in Colombia are amongst the highest you will find in the continent – most of the time this is for very good reason but it does give rise to other more contrived goal-related bets offering some cracking value.
The Leones ‘goal time’ bet last week illustrated this and I sense we might just have another opportunity in this game; the hosts are adrift after just 8 games and face a Tolima side who have (for Colombia at least) some startling stats so far.
The 3rd placed visitors are where they are on merit, 2-3-1-2-2-2-1-2-2 team goals across their last 9 league matches is impressive – even moreso if you consider they have won 7, drawn 1 and lost just 1 during that spell!
Even more notably, they have only failed to score in just 1 of the last 10 H2H’s having netted 1-4-2-0-4-1-1-1-2-2 team goal through the recent history.
