These are previews from the Belgian Jupiler League with all the latest on team news, player form, injuries along with my personal betting angles, ...
It was a good Saturday with the first big pre-game position I took a bit extra on in BTC ending up as a winner. 3 more matches today...
Cercle Brugge vs Antwerp
Cercle Brugge is sitting at the bottom of the rankings being 7 points behind on the team above them with 9 more weeks to go. This means they pretty much need to play for the 3 points in each match regardless of the opponent and I do expect them to play forward going their chances as they did in their last couple of matches. Antwerp is steady inside of the top 6 and is generally better at home this season. I do expect a match with chances on both sides and a Cercle Brugge that is not without a chance. The main bet I will be looking at is the over during the game. Antwerp rarely has early goals with both teams are much more 2H over heavy (1.6 Goals & 2.18 Goals) while having plenty of matches with a late goal (70% & 81.8%). The only pre-game bets I took is Cercle Brugge Corners +2 @ 1.763 as they are a team that goes forward and haven't lost to this handicap in their last 6 home matches and last 4 away matches. Antwerp by no means is a team that dominates the corners.
Anderlecht vs Club Brugge
Lats couple encounters between these 2 teams showed that Club Brugge is the superior team and nothing really changed since. Purely on paper, this should be a clear away win. It is, however, a match that still has to be played and I would not be surprised whatsoever to see a better Anderlecht. Roofe is injured which leaves the home team without much scoring power which they already lacked. They are 7 points behind on a top 6 spot with 9 matches to do so they can no longer settle for 0-0 draws (They had 7 of those already this season!). My feeling wants to get in some on Club Brugge at the current -0.5 @ 1.910 odds but it's hard to argue that Club Brugge as a team has been underrated on the Asian markets. I will wait it out and see how the match goes before taking anything. No Pre-Game Bets
Zulte-Waregem vs Racing Genk
Zulte-Waregem has shown to be reasonably good and consistent against mediocre to bad teams while falling short by a lot against the better teams in the League. Genk has had a difficult time in the year after becoming champions. They on top also lost their best striker and are back to having to field goalkeeper Coucke with Vukovic & Vandevoordt injured. My lean is on the home team, but the odds dropped too much compared to the opening +0.5 line in order to take them. Both teams are heavier on 2H goals (1.80 & 1.90). No Pre-Game Bets
