False 9 Best Bets for weekend soccer: Bodo/Glimt vs Viking & Wolfsburg vs Stuttgart – Can Junker keep scoring?
Bodo/Glimt vs Viking: For the first time in its club history, Bodo/Glimt are Champions of Norway Eliteserien and will be looking to end their amazing campaign in style when they host Viking on Saturday. If this is your first-time hearing of Bodo/Glimt this season, then you missed out on a betting cash cow. Plain and simple, this team rakes in goals by scoring an incredible 100 goals (56 via at home) through 29 fixtures. Bodo/Glimt’s Kasper Junker has scored 25 goals and will be eager to finish the season as the Eliteserian top scorer.
Could there be a lack of motivation for both teams in the game? Yes, that’s always the concern when going into the last fixture of a season; however, I believe Bodo/Glimt will provide a proper send off. The Home/Away Goal Average is 4.08 goals per game and 78% of the Head-to-Head match ups have seen over 2.5 goals. At worst, it’s a Push.
Over 3 goals (-145)
Wolfsburg vs Stuttgart: After last weekend’s fixtures, Wolfsburg will be looking to bounce back from a hard fought 2-1 loss to Bayern Munich while Stuttgart will be hoping to extend their unbeaten streak to 4 games when they face off on Sunday. Both these teams are playing impressive football and this game has the potential for a shootout. Based on the form and their statistics, I am not going to over-complicate things with this pick – I predict a 2-1 or 2-2 score line.
Wolfsburg has scored 12 times in the last 5 fixtures
Stuttgart has scored 13 times in the last 5 fixtures
Home/Away Average for Both Teams to Score (BTTS) is at 75%
Home/Away Average Goals per Match for both teams is 3.42.
Home/Away Average for over 2.5 goals is 67%.
Over 2.5 goals (-165)
If the odds are too high for you – AH o2.75 (-130) or BTTS and over 2.5 (-125)
