SURPRISED that Almere are underdogs at home tonight in the 1st leg against De Graafschap.
Almere may hold a world record (exaggeration) for both teams scored this season, but they have held up their form at home over the last few weeks, even knocking out the Eredivisie side in the last round.
De Graafschap have one clean sheet in their last 13 games on the road, with their last clean sheet at Almere coming in 2010 (6 times). BTTS & Over 2.5 is vert short, so Over 3.5 Goals looks like the only ‘safe’ pick here.
This is not a league where defensive strategies come to mind. Can see this being quite a big aggregate score come the end of the second leg. My pick is as follows.
- BTTS & Almere To Score in the 2nd Half
- (4-5, bet – 2.5 points
Take your fancy (All with bet):
Over 2.5 Goals & BTTS 2nd Half @ 11-8
BTTS Both Halves @ 6-1
