Bet of the Day - Friday 19th May - Auxerre vs Red Star (French Ligue 2)By Devroxian, May 19, 2017
Hello footies! Got a sweet BOTD for you guys from France, Ligue 2. However this is a quite different bet than I usually bet on, I’m trying something new but I’m confident in this one. We’ve got Auxerre (pos.18/20) vs Red Star FC (pos.19/20) against each other, they are ranked very low in the 2nd league of France. Alright to begin with, check the displayed stats below.
As we can see, they are basically bad, they lose or draw more than they win. But it’s not that exactly i’m looking for, looking at the average stats on scoring, the home team score 0.89 in average whilst the away team score 0.78 in average. Pretty low if you ask me.
Red Star’s form isn’t very good right now and Auxerre’s home form isn’t solid. And if you check a little above of the head to head stats, you see the average stats quickly. They rarely get above 2.5 goals and the average in Ligue 2 is 43%. This just tells me that they rarely score. Looking at the previous 3 fixtures, not one single game is above 2.5 goals. So I expect this to be almost a scoreless game.
Odds at Bet365 gives me 1.85 for Under 2.5 Goals. That is my bet for this game, however don’t go all in. I recommend betting 3& of your bankroll, even though I’m confident in this one you can never expect what happens in Ligue 2 and since this is a different bet from what I usually bet on therefore we should bet carefully.
As usual guys, any questions. Hit me up on Twitter @RodioActiveMan.
