As earlier mentioned days ago, it’s a rather jam-packed week and we’ve stayed on top all of the action, making sure to cover all games as fast as they come. Thursdays would normally signify for Europa League football but today we have league action in full swing. As usual, we have for you the best betting tips and predictions to go with from today’s action.
Erik ten Hag’s Ajax could be forgiven for going easy here given that they’ve won the title with three games to spare, however despite that they still beat Feyenoord 3-0 last time out which extended their Eredivisie unbeaten run to 21 games (W17, D4). Ajax have now kept clean sheets in six of their last eight league games whilst scoring 2+ goals in 12 of their last 15. We expect them to dominate Venlo here and claim another big win. Bet9ja have 1.15 odds while Bet365 and 1xbet have 1.20.
PSV would be aiming to continue their brilliant form when they take on a struggling Zwolle side. One of the four Eredivisie away teams to win ‘to nil’ on Sunday, PSV marched one step closer to a UEFA Champions League Qualifying Round appearance despite their lowest 32-game points tally in six full seasons. The challenge now is to claim five wins from a six-game period for the first time this Eredivisie campaign and we’re backing them to achieve that against a side with only eight wins all season. Bet9ja have 1.15 odds, 1xbet have 1.17 and Bet365 have 1.20.
Real Madrid know any slip here against Granada could all but end their title ambitions this season, therefore their record of three draws in five games will be a worry. However, they have reason to be motivated for a win here. First is the fact that rivals Barcelona dropped points. Rooted in mid-table, Granada’s three defeats in four captures how little they have left to play for this La Liga season and we’re backing Real Madrid to take all three points. Bet9ja have 1.30 odds, Bet365 have 1.36 and 1xbet have 1.41.
Over 2.5 Goals
Goals are expected when two attacking sides in Everton and Aston Villa take on each other. Everton are still somewhat chasing an European spot and that means they will give their all today. Interestingly, all of Aston Villa’s last five league games has seen over 2.5 goals and we’re backing that to happen once again today. Bet9ja have 1.78 odds, Bet365 have 1.86 and 1xbet have 1.89.
Over to the Eredivisie, Feyernood find themselves favorites against Heracles but it’s actually a game that could go anyway. Feyernood have lost their last two games and that could provide the hosts with some incentive to take the game to the visitors and perhaps get on the score-sheet. However it may be, four out of Heracles’ last five league games has seen over 2.5 goals and it could yet follow suit once again today. Bet9ja have 1.58 odds, Bet365 have 1.60 while 1xbet have 1.67.
After reaching the Europa League final, Villarreal suffered a setback after a 4-2 loss to Celta Vigo. An away trip against Valladolid awaits and we’re backing them to get back to their best for sure. The ‘Yellow Submarine do have one of La Liga’s best goals scored average on the road (1.65 per match), and therefore could provide the torpedo that sinks Valladolid into Spain’s second tier. Valladolid have been awful this season and this match could be the one that sees their survival hopes blown cold. Bet9ja have 1.87, Bet365 have 1.90 and 1xbet have 1.97.
Karim Benzema has been the man starting the party on the road for Madrid, netting his side’s opening goal in three of their last four away LL encounters. Real Madrid know that a win here could see them sniff closer to the title and you can count on a Frenchman that has been consistent all season to be at his best today. Bet365 have 1.66 odds for him to score while Bet9ja have 1.78.
Calvert-Lewin returned to goal-scoring ways with a crucial goal against West Ham last time out that turned out to be the winner. The Englishman has bagged 16 league goals all season and he’ll fancy his chances against an Aston Villa side poor in defence at the moment. Bet9ja and Bet365 have 2.50 odds for him to score.
Tadic might have blanked in the past five league games for Ajax but we’re backing him to end that today. The Dutchman is the highest goal contributor in the Eredivisie this season with 17 assists and 14 goals, including a first-half strike in the reverse. With Ajax already securing the league, increasing his goal tally would be all on his mind and he might have a chance today against Venlo. Bet365 have 1.55 odds while Bet9ja have 1.90.
