I’ve got burned on Djurgarden this past Monday, so I have to take another shot Saturday afternoon when the Swedish Allsvenskan leaders welcome Sirius. Likewise, there are a few more games across Europa with quite interesting betting trends.
Football Betting Trends – Sunday, August 10, 2019
- Djurgarden vs. Sirius (16:00 CET)
- Genk vs. Zulte Waregem (20:30 CET)
- Willem II vs. Vitesse (20:30 CET)
Djurgarden’s last seven games saw two or fewer goals in the total. In that span, Djurgarden recorded five wins with clean sheet along with a couple of 1-1 stalemates. On the other side, Sirius is winless in five straight outings, recording three losses in the process, while eight of Sirius’ last nine games produced fewer than three goals in the total.
The betting trends are suggesting a low-scoring affair, but I have to take Over 2.5 Goals at 1.70. At least, four of seven head-to-head duels between Djurgarden and Sirius had three or more goals in the total. I expect Djurgarden to dominate Sirius here and score a few goals, so picking the hosts to win long with Over 1.5 Goals at 1.70 is another option.
Elsewhere, Genk will search for its ninth straight home victory over Zulte Waregem, while the betting trends suggest a high-scoring affair in Tilburg where Willem II welcomes Vitesse.
Genk won seven of its last eight outings at home, and six of those eight contests saw at least three goals on the scoreboard. Likewise, Waregem lost three of its last six outings on the road along with one win and two draws, and all six tilts went in the over 2.5 goals. The odds are not attractive, but I would go with Genk to win and Over 2.5 Goals at 1.50.
Willem II hosts Vitesse, and the last four H2H duels saw both teams scoring and four goals in the total, at least. Willem II opened the season with a 3-1 road victory over Zwolle, while Vitesse earned a 2-2 draw against Ajax at home, so I’m backing Over 2.5 Goals at 1.70 on this one.
