Weekend Betting Tips

Vannes v Dijon

Vannes lie outside the relegation places on goal difference and realistically need a win to keep their survival hopes alive. They have a tricky game next weekend, so will be hoping to get a good result here tonight. They have put in good performances in their last two games to boost their hopes of remaining in the division, but need another one tonight.

Dijon are mathematically not safe, but to all extents and purposes, they will be. They are missing one of their first-choice central defenders, as well as their keeper, and their backup keeper is somewhat suspect. Whilst their away record isn’t too bad, they have lost the last two games and have little to play for this season.

Vannes need the points more than their opponents, and have found a little bit of form recently. It won’t be easy, which is why I am taking a little bit of cover for the draw.

Bet: Vannes -0.25AH @ 1.7

Final Result: Vannes 1 - 0 Dijon

Strasbourg v Nîmes

After a poor run of form, Strasbourg find themselves only 3 points ahead of the relegation zone. Their problem has been away from home, where they haven’t won, but they have been fairly solid at home this year. They don’t have any major injury concerns ahead of this game.

Nîmes looked like they may challenge for promotion until a run of only 2 wins in 12 games. They have drawn 4 of their last 5 away game 0-0, but they know that they need to attack more if they are to have any chance of grabbing a promotion spot.

With the other relegation contenders facing tricky games, Strasbourg will know that they have a chance to secure their spot in the division against a team that has gone off the boil in the past month or so.

Bet: Strasbourg -0.5AH @ 1.82

Final Result: Strasbourg 1 - 1 Nîmes

Roda v Willem II

Roda have been in excellent form at home recently, winning 6 of their last 7 games, scoring at least 2 goals in each of those matches. They need a win to give themselves any hope of securing a place in the European playoffs and will be going all out for a big win.

Willem II have been nothing short of terrible away from home this season, with 15 defeats from 16 games. They have already qualified for the relegation playoff, so have nothing to play for in this game and will not want any injuries or cards ahead of that playoff.

Roda should win this game comfortably given their need of the three points. They should come out of the blocks quickly to try and secure the win early on.

Bet: Roda -1.5AH @ 1.65
Bet: Roda HT/FT @ 1.66

NEC v Ajax

With only 1 win in their last 10 games and no home win in 4, NEC lie in mid-table with absolutely nothing to play for whatsoever in this game, except for pride.

On the other hand, Ajax have made a dramatic late charge for the title with 13 straight league victories, scoring 46 and only conceding 2 goals in that period. They have to win and hope that Twente slip up against NAC Breda. Ajax have the easier game and will look to grab an early lead to put the pressure on Twente.

It would be a huge shock were Ajax not to win this and they will look to make a lightning quick start to put the pressure on the less experienced Twente side.

Bet: Ajax HT/FT @ 1.5

Grimsby v Barnet

Following Barnet’s defeat at Accrington, this match has become huge with respect to the relegation battle in League 2. Grimsby have nothing to lose in this game, since they know that only a win will be enough. They lie 4 points behind Barnet with 2 games left of the season and they have strung together 3 wins in their last 5 games.

Barnet have lost 5 on the bounce to drop perilously close to the drop. They have the worst away record in the division and goals have been difficult to find recently, with main striker, Paul Furlong, showing his age.

Grimsby have to win to keep any hopes of survival alive and they should be able to manage this against an out-of-form Barnet side.

Bet: Grimsby to win @ 2.0

Final Result: Grimsby 2 - 0 Barnet

MK Dons v Brighton

The MK Dons have collapsed in the second half of the season and are without a win in 9 games. They will be without 12 first team regulars through injury and suspension, having had 3 men sent off last weekend. They are set to give starts to 3 teenagers, including a striker who has been recalled from his loan spell at Forest Green.

Brighton are finishing well with 5 wins in their last 9 games and have only lost 2 of their last 13 games away from home. They play with a lot of pace and would be higher up the table if they had a more clinical striker to take the chances they create.

MK Dons cannot wait for this season to end, whist Brighton are finishing strongly, despite having nothing to play for.

Bet: Brighton -0.25AH @ 1.82

Final Result: MK Dons 0 - 0 Brighton

Blackpool v Bristol City

Blackpool squeezed into the final playoff place last weekend following a victory at already relegated Peterborough. They have won 6 of their last 7 games, only losing to champions Newcastle during that period. They are also unbeaten in 7 games at home. They know their fate is in their own hands, but must make sure of the win, otherwise Swansea could nip in and cost them a chance at the Premiership.

Bristol City are in good form with 5 wins in their last 7 games, although they have only won 3 of their previous 13 away from home. They have only lost 1 of their last 10 against Blackpool and considering Bristol City’s hatred of Blackpool manager Ian Holloway, they would love to lost them a playoff place.

Blackpool need to win this and hopefully the added motivation should give them the desire to go ahead and grab the 3 points.

Bet: Blackpool to win @ 1.5
