Profit from LIVE trading on Betfair

A superb live chat last night. Did you attend? Plenty of money made from plenty of superb calls....and all from the Europa League! Likely I am having a rest today as late live chats necessitate a 4am finish for me, accounting for the time difference. I will be live chatting Saturday and Sunday....but you never know. The Dutch Eerste Divisie is a reliable league goals-wise.


19:45 - Wigan v Bristol City - 2.16 Wigan

  • Top 5 sides so this could be tight.
  • Wigan 3 wins and a draw at home. Only 2 clean sheets, one came at home.
  • Only 1 0-0 at halftime.
  • 4 consecutive Bristol wins ended with a 4-2 loss away at free-scoring West Brom.
  • 2-3-1-2 goals scored away by Bristol, winning only 2 matches.
  • A tough clash to call. 2 inform sides. A feeling both teams could score, look at City's scoring form away. If City continue to score 2, they could be a threat if Wigan score first.


19:45 - Monaco v Nimes - 1.71 Monaco

  • Bordeaux found out that if you don't keep a lid on Nimes, they'll punish you!
  • Monaco have scored and conceded in 4 matches this season. Only 1 win came first match of the season.
  • 4-3-0-2-3 goals scored by Nimes this season, winning their opening 2 matches. 3-4, 1-0, 3-3 away. Only Toulouse have kept a lid on them.
  • Watch out for fun and games, We profited by opposing Bordeaux last match and this Monaco are showing poor early season form. More fun from Nimes? I would see value laying Monaco if Monaco score first or even lead 2-0. Realistically they should be beating a newly promoted side.


19:30 - Stuttgart v Fortuna Dusseldorf - 1.72 Stuttgart

  • No win for Stuttgart, who have conceded 3 goals in their last 2 matches.
  • Loss, Draw, Win Dusseldorf. Both teams have scored. They took advantage of a distracted Hoff beating them 2-1. A good away 1-1 v Leipzig suggests Dusseldorf have a good defence so I give them a chance today.
  • Will both teams score?
  • Stuttgart will record their first win of the


19:30 - Sassuolo v Empoli - 1.96 Sassuolo

  • 2 home wins Sassuolo includes v Inter. 2-2 and 1-2 loss v Juve away for Sassuolo suggests they are in good nick this season. Both teams have scored in the last 3 Sassuolo matches.Of some small concern, Sassuolo have conceded 2-3-2 goals last 3 and only lost one of those matches.
  • Empoli have failed to score in their last 2 matches. Only 1 win.
  • A feeling Sassuolo can continue their solid early season form. They certainly should not be losing this match and are lucky in conceding 7 in 3 matches, that they meet a team failing to score in 2 matches.


19:00 - Heracles v De Graafschap - 1.62 Heracles

  • No recent head to heads.
  • Solid start to the season from Heracles. 3 wins in 4 matches scoring 4-3-5 goals in those wins. Where did those goals come from?
  • They have conceded 1-2-5-2-3 goals too so are vulnerable.
  • De Graaf are newly promoted. They started off brilliantly beating Feyenoord but reality has since hit with 3 losses and a draw.
  • If Heracles continue their goal scoring, they should simply outscore De Graaf today.
  • If Heracles continue their scoring, there is a chance we could profit from laying the 0-0 in the halftime score market.


20:00 - Huesca v Real Sociedad - 2.24 Sociedad

  • Huesca newly promoted.
  • Identical start to season. Win, Draw, Loss Loss.
  • Both teams have scored in all bar 1 of the 8 matches played between these 2.
  • Both sides started with 3 aways and one at home.
  • 2-2-2-0 goals scored by Huesca. 2-2-1-1 Sociedad.
  • We should expect goals from 2 sides with attacking intent.
  • What chance a 2-2?


19:30 - Zulte Waregem v Kortrijk - 1.83 Zulte

  • Zulte tend to win head to heads
  • Only 1 win for Zulte this season. 4 consecutive defeats. They scored and conceded in all bar 1 match.
  • Kortrijk have just the one win too.
  • Zulte have scored 2 goals at least in their 3 home matches. They have scored in all matches.
  • Kortrijk have failed to score in 3/4 away.
  • Both sides in poor recent form. It seems Kortrijk are in worse form than Zulte.
  • Go with the head to heads?


18:00 - Vejle v Esbjerg -  2.48 Vejle


All 19:00 kick-offs.

Den Bosch v Almere City - 2.2 Den Bosch

  • Almere tend to win head to heads. 2 1-3 wins in a row away to Den Bosch.
  • No 0-0 at halftime Den Bosch.
  • Only 1 loss Almere. 2 away wins for them, scoring 2 goals minimum.
  • Almere have scored in every match.
  • I expect goals and a goal at least before halftime with Almere not losing.

Jong PSV v Volendam - 1.7 Jong

  • the home side has tended to win head to heads
  • Only 1 win in 10 matches between these 2 this season came 1st match Jong PSV
  • Both teams scored all PSV matches.Volendam have failed to score in 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • It seems this will go with the head to heads.

Telstar v Twente - 1.8 Twente

  • No draw Telstar.Only 1 clean sheet.Only 2 wins.
  • Twente having a better start in the lesser league. Both teams scored in 4/5 matches.3-0-3-3-2 goals total before halftime.
  • I'd be with Twente today and a likely goal before halftime.

MVV Maastricht v Dordrecht - 1.85 MVV

  • MVV won the last 4 head to heads.
  • No win for Dordrecht.4 consecutive defeats.
  • 2/2 defeats at home for MVV. Win, Draw, Win away.
  • Messy match. Can MVV get their first home win?

Waalwijk v Jong AZ Alkmaar - 1.72 Waalwijk

  • 1 win each head to heads.
  • No draw Waalwijk, 2 wins and 3 losses.
  • Only 1 win Jong AZ came last match a 3-2.
  • Waalwijk have failed to score last 3 matches.
  • Only 1 clean sheet between these 2.
  • Not for me. In-play stats will reveal all.

Jong Utrecht v Cambuur - 1.45 Cambuur

  • 3 Cambuur wins and a 2-2 in head to heads.
  • Only 1 win for Jong this season, 4 defeats, total goals 5-3-2-5-4 total goals.
  • No clean sheet for Jong.
  • A 2-2 and 4 wins v Cambuur. 5 consecutive 1-0 halftime scorelines. 2+ goals scored by Cambuur.
  • This should be an away win and a goal before halftime.

Helmond Sport v NEC Nijmegen - 1.4 NEC

  • 1-1 and 1-2 NEC last 2 head to heads.
  • No win Helmond. 3 draws and 2 defeats. Helmond have conceded 2 goals in 3 of their last 4 matches.
  • NEC unbeaten scoring 2+ goals in 4/5 matches. Scored in every match. No 0-0 at halftime.
  • This should go the way of the market. 2 goals at least from NEC?

TOP Oss v Sparta Rotterdam - 1.82 Sparta

  • Last head to head 2016.
  • Both sides have only the one defeat.
  • Sole 0-0 for Oss last match. 4-1 and 1-3 at home.
  • A loss and 4 wins for Sparta. Sparta have only scored 1 goal max away, and 2 in wins at home.
  • No strong angles.

Go Ahead Eagles v Jong Ajax - 2.3 Jong Ajax

  • Go Ahead tend to win in head to heads.
  • 4 wins and a 3-2 loss for Go Ahead Eagles this season. 2+ goals scored in every match, even in defeat.
  • No 0-0 at halftime.
  • A single win for Jong Ajax. 3 wins and a draw last 4 matches. No 0-0 at halftime Jong Ajax. 1 goal max scored by Jong Ajax away.
  • Lay the 0-0 in the halftime score market. Based on THIS season, Go Ahead again for me especially if Jong Ajax fail to score than 2nd goal.

Roda JC v FC Eindhoven - 1.45 Roda

  • Last 2 head to heads were friendlies.
  • 100% defeats for FC Eindhoven. 2 goals conceded in all bar last match.3 consecutive 0-0's at halftime but 2-2-1 goals at fulltime in total.
  • Roda have scored and conceded first 4 matches. 2-1 and 2-3 at home.
  • The market expects no turnaround from Eindhoven yet. Note the 0-0 at halftime, and lay it 2nd half.


19:15 - Cork City v Dundalk - 1.97 Dundalk

  • Dundalk, Cork, Dundalk last 3 head to heads. Dundalk wins came at home.

Cork City (2nd)

  • A draw and 2 consecutive defeats. Can still win the title but losing touch slowly.
  • Both teams have scored in the last 5 matches.

  • 8 consecutive away wins.
  • No draw in 18 and in 13 away.
  • Scored in their last 17 and last 9 away.
  • 2 losses and a draw came away v top 4 so are vulnerable.


  • This is a must-win really for Cork who are wobbling at the moment. But this season, all clean sheets at home v the top 5.
  • They play a team scoring in 17 and 9 away. Can Cork keep that clean sheet. This will be a good match to monitor.
