Sligo Rovers vs Finn Harps Best Bet
Ireland, Premier League, Saturday, 18th June, 19:45 (UK time)
Finn Harps provide the competition for an odds-on Sligo Rovers side sitting fifth in the table. It has been an uninspiring campaign for both, in honesty.
The visitors have a below-par UC Dublin between themselves and rock bottom, earning only two points more than the university-based outfit. On the other hand, Sligo’s record (W6/D7/L6) with 25 scored and 23 conceded screams mediocrity.
The West Ireland side would’ve hoped for better before a ball was kicked in anger this campaign, given their UEFA Europa Conference League qualifying third-place finish last season. Their foray into Europe is a short trip across the Channel to take on the Welsh side Bala Town next month. However, recent form suggests European football may be arriving at the worst possible time.
One win in seven is what Sligo fans have been treated to of late. It’s a far cry from what you’d expect from an Irish side with European football soon on the agenda. But, make no bones about it, the visit of Finn Harps will be one where the hosts aim to set the record straight and get back to winning ways.
Nonetheless, commandeering a much-needed three points won’t be easy. Sligo Rovers have conceded in and overseen BTTS in each of their last eight games. During that stretch, and in their previous league fixture, even UC Dublin managed to nick a goal and a point from a less than stingy Sligo back four.
Seven losses in ten for Finn Harps doesn’t offer much reason to get them on side, explaining the 4.33 price for an away victory. The head-to-head meetings suggest a bleak weekend for Ollie Horgan’s Harps could be on the cards. A 3-1 Sligo home win was compounded by a 0-1 double in County Donegal.
Can Sligo Rovers make it three on the bounce? At 1.95, it’s an enticing enough price to get behind, although admittedly not the surest of sides to get on side at present.
- Selection: Sligo Rovers Win
- Best Odds: 1.95 (Betway)
- Stakes: 10/10
Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles FC Best Bet
United States, MLS, Saturday, 18th June, 20:00 (UK time)
A trip across the pond to Lumen Field is up next. Seattle Sounders welcome an LA side tasked with 90-minutes after a 1,100+ mile journey up north.
With teams averaging upwards of 5,000km worth of travel a month, thousands of air miles for one plane ride doesn’t spring too many surprises. Yet, it’s always worth considering when navigating the MLS schedule from a betting perspective. In this instance, high-flying Los Angeles FC may feel they could buy a round-the-world ticket and still overcome what’s waiting for them on the other side.
At home, however, Seattle have proved no pushovers. Sounders are averaging 2.00 goals scored per90, whilst conceding 1.00 on average at the other end across their opening six fixtures on home soil.
Not only does Los Angeles FC command the top spot in the Western Conference, but their away record also has them near the summit. Only Nashville SC trump Saturday evening’s visitors in this campaign’s away standings. For LAFC, 1.83 stands as their total away goals scored per90 this season – not bad at all.
It’s a fair enough assumption to expect goals to be on the menu in Seattle. Either side has a mirroring home and away record for the suggested selection. In 50% of matches on familiar soil, BTTS & O2.5 goals has landed in 50% of games for the Sounders. For LAFC, it’s an identical story whilst on their travels.
bet365’s offering of Evens for it to happen once more makes for a calculated way into MLS’ opening fixture of the weekend.
- Selection: BTTS & O2.5 Goals
- Best Odds: 2.00 (bet365)
- Stakes: 10/10
LA Galaxy vs Portland Timbers Best Bet
United States, MLS, Saturday, 18th June, 22:00 (UK time)
It was a miserable end to May for Portland Timbers. Three losses on the bounce provide the backdrop to their jaunt to Los Angeles to face a home side who are billed as 1.70 favourites here.
Couple up Timbers’ poor May with a three-game head-to-head losing streak, and you may find the reasoning for the odds against price in Galaxy’s favour. An LA Galaxy eleven have just made two commanding efforts in the last two fixtures. Galaxy took a big 3-0 lead up against Los Angeles FC in the cup and recorded a 4-0 vs Austin – before conceding a consolation goal in both.
For another LA Galaxy win and there to be more than a solitary goal in the game, we can lock in an odd against pick with bet365. Let’s hope current form continues in America.
- Selection: LA Galaxy Win & O1.5 Goals
- 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.
