THE Inter vs Roma match proved to be a real disappointment last night despite everything pointing to goals but the Dutch Eerste Divisie did what it usually doesn't and delivered 27 goals (26 needed).
It's an action-packed card today and it will be no surprise I'm backing goals in a Hiba match for the 8th time this season having seen all 7 other tips land. They have been tremendous for goals and welcome an Aberdeen side who haven't been shy of a goal recently.
Further down in League One I'm taking Falkirk to inflict another defeat on out-of-sorts East Fife and backing my second-half goals at Norwich.
You can listen to my thoughts and tips on the above matches on the Gambla Betting Podcast.
Hibs vs Aberdeen (3pm)
My love for Hibs has grown this season and that's purely down to the fact I've backed them 7 times this season and they have delivered each time.
They landed another NAP midweek as they fell to a 2-1 defeat at Ross County that has now seen them keep just one clean sheet in 15 league games this season which is criminal.
I've been highlighting Hibs' defensive frailties for what feels like months now bit it's a really a serious Achilles heel for the Easter Road side.
Hibs home matches this season have been a goal haven – their last 7 games have seen over 2.5 with BTTS with 6 of them going over 3.5 goals.
In attack Flo Kamberi and Christian Doidge are leading the line well for Hibs, especially Doidge who now has 6 in 4 and Aberdeen have their own marksman who has been attracting a lot of attention in Sam Cosgrove who has 18 goals this season.
Would be really surprised if we didn't see both sides score and given how Hibs home games have turned out this season we should probably expect a 94th-minute Aberdeen goal.
Really tough game to call, the Dons are in fine form – goals the best option here.
- Over 2.5 goals
- 19/20 (Marathonbet) (NAP)
East Fife vs Falkirk (3pm)
It's not been a great few weeks for East Fife – knocked out the Scottish Cup by Lowland League side BSC Glasgow, a disappointing 0-0 draw at home to Clyde was then followed up by a 4-0 battering from Airdrie.
Falkirk have improved in recent weeks under their new caretaker management due although those were wins were against sides you'd expect them to beat.
This is a tough match for the Bairns but just feel they will edge this especially given how poor East Fife have been.
- Falkirk to win
- 1/1 (Betfair)
QPR vs Preston (3pm)
A trend I've noticed this season and tipped before is over 1.5 second-half goals at Loftus Road – this has landed in 8 of their 11 home games.cQPR are weak at the back and that should aid the second-half goals with Preston in the promotion race.
- Over 1.5 second half goals
- 5/6 (bet365)
