THE Nordic sides let me down yesterday but stats are flagging up more strugglers in the second division.
I backed Marienlyst to concede twice in a game they conceded four against the leaders midweek. They host another struggler in their division in Skovshoved but the visitors have scored in six of their eight away games in the playoffs (2+ in five of them). Marienlyst are the bookies favourites but their defensive frailties can’t be trusted with 16 goals shipped in their last six (25 in their last 9). Still capable of a goal themselves but I’m taking Skovshoved to score at a decent price.
Double that up with Udinese to attempt survival in Serie A with a win at already relegated Verona. Any of five teams could go down in Serie A today, but it's Udinese who probably have the easiest out with other teams around them playing superior opponents. Verona have known their fate for some time but they’ve still be performing poorly with eight losses in their last 10, conceding 2+ in 7, (3+ in 6). Udinese despite their losses have still threatened in front of goal with 8 goals in their last six. Total goals might be the way forward here but there is value on team goals for a game they may have to win depending on other results around them.
- Udinese Over 1.5 Team Goals (Italy, 2pm)
- Skovshoved To Score (Denmark, 1pm)
- (19-20, bet – 2 points
- Over 2.5 Goals Double
- (8-5, bet – 0.5 a point
