These posts contain previews from the Belgian Jupiler League with some of my personal bets, Live-betting angles, team form, injuries along with general team news...
Quite a solid Saturday with another Pre-Game Winner taking extra in BTC and also a nice live bet winner on Stvv +0 @ 2.47. I did give some away again in the Waasland-Beveren match as my smaller bets continue to underperform. Today is Super Sunday with a couple of Top matches. I will be keeping a fairly low profile on the pre-game bets.
Club Brugge vs Racing Genk
Club Brugge managed to qualify for the Champions League last Wednesday and simply have a solid team this year even though last couple league matches haven't been all that good. Racing Genk has not impressed me so far even though they took a couple of big wins. Their biggest issue is that they lack the creativity they had in the midfield last season and I'll be looking for good spots to oppose them. Today might be one of those opportunities. I doubted too much on the opening -0.5 @ 1.83 line and pretty much missed the boat as they dropped. I will have my eye live on taking Club Brugge and possibly the over. I will have to first like what I see in the match so No Pre-Game Bets
Anderlecht vs Standard
Anderlecht comes in this match pretty wounded. They have taken a beating in pretty much all of their matches despite showing a pretty decent level of play at some point in all of them and they will be without Vincent Kompany who got injured. They still don't have a real striker and I see no reason why the current pattern they are in would reverse. Standard generally is a bad away team but tend to play good matches against Anderlecht. They still have some missings and Lestienne will be suspended but Carcella showed some excellent form last week when he came in. I took a small bet on Standard +0.25 @ 1.920. There is still a pattern of Anderlecht playing a good 1st half so I'm rather cautious and will see to get in more live depending on how it all plays out.
AA Gent vs Cercle Brugge
These are 2 teams I don't fully trust. AA Gent usually shows to be the better team but often they aren't able to translate it into goals. Cercle Brugge broke a long-lasting Losing streak winning for the first time since April this year. They do have some quality but lack experience. AA Gent had a long trip to Rijeka where they ended up qualifying for the Europa League. The +1.75 handicap set on the match seems too big as I would not be surprised to see Cercle Brugge scoring a goal. I forced myself to take a 2 tiny bets on Cercle Brugge 1st Half +0.75 @ 1.870 and Cercle Brugge +1.75 @ 1.880 and will see how this one plays out live. The bigger odds +0.5 line is also an option for me.
Zulte-Waregem vs FC Antwerp
It was a Poor Performance last week from Zulte-Waregem away against Sint-Truiden on an artificial pitch. Antwerp got knocked out of the Europa League by AZ after both Mbokani and Lamkel Zé took unneeded red cards seeing AZ score the 1-1 late after constant press which took it into overtime. Antwerp is the better team but the mid-week match is keeping me away. The under 3 line is also tempting but it's one of those matches that can both directions on the number of goals. No Pre-Game Bets
