We have found the best betting advice for the Asian Handicap prices from Eastbridge for the matches on Friday and Monday. The early match on Friday between Lyngby and Esbjerg has been postponed due to snow and we can expect to see some very heavy and wet pitches for this round. Last week we had one winning tip and one loss, but we will not settle for less than two winners this time.
Randers FC vs FC Midtjylland – Friday 24th February at 19:15
Randers had an awful start with their 0-3 defeat in Odense, while FC Midtjylland had to settle with a 0-0 draw against Viborg as there will be a lot of unanswered questions heading in to tonight’s match, but hopefully we will be wiser.
Randers ended 2016 with four defeats in a row and with the loss against Odense it now makes it five in the Superliga. That is one thing – but even worse is that Randers have not scored in the last four matches! For the match against Midtjylland the home team will be without Mikkel Kallesøe, Brandur Hendriksson, Nikola Djurdjic and suspended Marcus Mølvadgaard.
Midtjylland had a number of players out in the game against Viborg and did not play well. With a red card for Captain Tim Sparv he has to be sidelined for this match and they will also be without Rafael van der Vaart, Janus Drachmann, Marc Dal Hende and Markus Halsti.
Both teams are far from their best possible lineups and with a heavy wet pitch tonight, most of the play will be in midfield. This could very well be a match that will not go into the history books as the most interesting fixture. Instead, I see a match with few goals and potentially many bookings.
Asian Handicap Recommendation: Under 2.5 goals @ 1.79
Viborg vs Aarhus – Monday 27th February at 18:00
Viborg was under pressure for a long period against FC Midtjylland but with the second booking for Tim Sparv and a red card, the pressure stopped and Viborg took a point. Viborg had a lot of problems creating chances and for the match on Monday it will not be easier. Oliver Thychosen, George Fochive and Osama Akharraz will be out for the hosts.
Aarhus were really disappointed with the loss at home against Aalborg; the winning goal scored in injury time made it even harder for Aarhus, but they will need to optimise the defence before Monday.
For this match the defence will once again be without more of the experienced players. Mikkel Rask, Niklas Backman and Daniel A. Pedersen are all out with injuries and midfield general Martin Spelman is suspended.
I believe it will be hard for Viborg to control the match and with important points for both teams at stake, it could very well be a very slow start to the match. More focus in defence than in offence.
Asian Handicap Recommendation: Under 0.75 goals 1st half @ 2.23
Prices correct at the time of writing.
