Inverness vs St Johnstone Best Bet
Scotland, Premiership Playoffs, Friday, 15th May, 19:45 (UK time)
Inverness progressed to the playoff final after edging out Arbroath to the tune of 5-3 on penalties following a goalless draw. With Premiership football well and truly in their sights, it’s all eyes on a two-legged affair with St Johnstone.
The visitors ended six points from safety on Scotland’s top-flight and thoroughly deserve to be unwantedly giving an account of themselves in the Premiership’s Relegation/Promotion duel. St Johnstone’s 24 goals scored was, by far, the fewest in the division last season – St Mirren’s 33 was the closest.
I can’t imagine this being an end-to-end spectacle in what should be a nervy affair for large parts with what’s at stake. Away from home in the Premiership, St Johnstone hit a goals per90 average of just 0.43. On the other hand, Inverness boasts a 1.67 total. So, if the goal trends continue, the under three goals pick should cross the finish line in our favour.
Equipped with the home crowd’s backing and the form which has got them into Friday night’s significant clash, I’m keen to side with the hosts in some capacity. The 5.22 Inverness corners per90 on home soil in the Championship has forced my hand and should be a byproduct of the attacking impetus the hosts will need to show to get a leg up going into the second leg.
- Selection: Over 3 Inverness Corners and Under 3 Total Goals
- Best Odds: 2.00 (bet365)
- Stakes: 10/10
Drogheda United vs Finn Harps Best Bet
Friday, 19th May, 19:45, Ireland Premier Division (UK time)
In April, these two met one month ago, a pairing that provided insight into why both are languishing near the bottom of Ireland’s top flight. The leaky nature in either side’s defensive third reared its head simultaneously in a fixture that produced four goals in a 2-2 draw.
Interestingly, Drogheda and Finn Harps have a mirroring home and away record in terms of goals scored and conceded this season. At home, Drogheda are averaging 1.00 goals per90 whilst conceding a sizeable 1.86. On their travels, Finn Harps have registered exactly the same – 1.00 scored and 1.86 at the other end.
With the likelihood of either side shipping goals at the wrong end, the both teams to score price of 1.95 for something that happened so recently seems reasonable. It looks like it will be a three, potentially four-way scrap, for who gets sucked into a relegation battle this season. Friday night’s match is an opportunity for both to put a marker down.
- Selection: BTTS
- Best Odds: 1.95 (bet365)
- Stakes: 10/10
Torino vs Roma Best Bet
Italy, Serie A, Friday, 19th May, 19:45 (UK time)
Massimiliano Irrati and Roma’s trip to Torino makes up the final selection. Torino sits in tenth, mid-table and with little to play for regarding league position.
Roma, however, have next season’s European football hanging in the balance as they move closer to the Serie A’s 38th fixture. Although able to have a second shot at European qualification with the UEFA Europa Conference League final next week, Jose Mourinho will be hell-bent on ensuring Europa League football is locked in beforehand.
Don’t think for one second that Torino will roll over and have their bellies tickled; that’s not in Ivan Jurić’s DNA. In fact, Torino have lost just twice in the previous ten matches. It’s a run that has edged The Old Maroon Heart up the table and into a position where they’re guaranteed to finish above Udinese, Bologna and Empoli with one game left to play.
The Romans will want to have their say, of course, in a manner that typifies a Mourinho-led outfit. A never say die, us against the world type of say, you would think. Roma’s 3.00 cards received per90 this campaign suggests what kind of affair this could materialise into.
Massimiliano Irrati, the man appointed to officiate Friday’s clash, has the card totals to back up the likelihood of bookings in Turin. From his ten fixtures in the Italian top-flight this season. Irrati has handed out an average of 5.70 yellow cards each game with the addition of two reds.
The referee card average is divided into 2.30 in the first half and 3.80 in the second 45-minutes. That’s not bad at all. And with that, I’m going for Roma to see yellow in both halves with a sprinkle of Torino ill-discipline.
- Selection: Over 0 Roma First Half Cards & Card Each in Second Half
- Best Odds: 2.00 (bet365)
- Stakes: 10/10
WHAT IS A FOOTBALL ACCA?
A football acca is an accumulator bet, a type of bet that consists of several selections across different matches that are combined together into one single bet. An acca usually. consists of at least four selections but many more can be included. There will be odds for the single bet as a whole which is calculated by multiplying the odds of all of the selections. A football acca is one of the most popular ways to bet. This is the case because they can create potentially massive odds for a small stake. Many punters choose to create football accas which is what we have created here. If one of these selections loses then the football acca will lose. This type of bet needs every selection to win in order to succeed.
