MONDAY means U21 and reserve football in the UK and across Europe and it's one of my favourite betting days of the week. SPFL and Belgium reserve leagues will be my main focus on a Monday but plenty of other matches in Denmark Holland and the Czech Republic
St Johnstone Res v Ross County Res (2pm)
Been a great start to the season for goals in this league and the notably difference this year is the change from U21 to reserve football, meaning clubs can play far more first-team players. S Johnstone have a strong squad this season and I expect quite a few first-team squad players to be involved today.
They host Ross County who have been a firm favourite of mine for goals over the last few seasons. There are 18 teams in this league and 10 of them have averaged over 4 goals per game from their opening 3 matches.
St Johnstone haven't been too clever defensively and Ross County have a decent squad and score plenty of goals. We should see both sides getting scoring here and like a lot of games in this league, 3-1 and 2-2 scores are common.
- St Johnstone Res v Ross County Res over 3.5 match goals
- Will be around 5/6 in play (bet365) (NAP)
Sint Truiden Res v Eupen Res (6.30pm)
It's that time of the week again to back goals in the Sint Truiden match. There’s not much more I can say about them that I've not already said when it comes to goals. They delivered yet again last week with a typical 2-2 draw bringing their total number of goals in their last 5 matches to 29 which is incredible.
They host a Eupen side who themselves have been in about the goals this season with 23 goals from their last 5 matches. Seven of their last 9 on the road have seen 4 or more goals and like the majority of games in the league, both teams score at least once.
The last 5 meetings have seen both score and delivered 25 goals. Both sides are scoring and conceding for fun – should see more of the same tonight.
- Sint Truiden Res v Eupen Res over 3.5 match goals
- Over 2.5 is 7/20 so should get around 10/11 inplay (Bet365)
