Avispa v Shonan – Betting Preview
Since losing against Kobe in the season opener, Avispa has bounced back admirably.
They have got seven points from a possible nine since the opening-day defeat. Back-to-back wins were followed up with a draw with Kashima last time out.
They begin this J-League round sitting level on points with sides as high as 4th spot.
Avispa themselves are currently in 7th position.
Since they lost the opening match against Kobe, that opponent has become the league leader, adding credit and reinforcing the good form of Avispa.
They come into this match with strong confidence and momentum, they will be set on a win.
Shonan sits in 10th place in the J-League table but has not won in three games, losing their last outing 2-0 against Kyoto Sanga.
Shonan began the season with a really impressive 5-1 victory on the road against Sagan Tosu.
However, since that massive win to open their campaign, the form has dropped off notably and they haven’t won since.
They will travel to Avispa Fukuoka seeking to get a win, but the draw would be a perfectly satisfactory result.
If they can engineer the three points then they could move above the opponent and as high as the top six in the division.
So far, their matches have been open and entertaining, with 14 goals spread across their four outings.
Looking at the 1×2 market first. The market simply cannot split these two sides in this match up.
Avispa and Shonan both are on offer in this market with the same odds of winning the game @ 2.70. The draw is often the value way to go in situations such as this, particularly @ 3.00.
Moving onto the Asian handicap betting for this contest. Unsurprisingly given the market cannot separate these clubs, the Draw no bet (DNB) is offered as a cushion.
So a bet on either Avispa -0 @ 1.88 or Shonan -0 @ 1.94, would see the full stake returned should it end as a draw.
Looking at The Under/Over goal betting last of all. The line is set at 2 goals which indicates the market is not expecting an entertaining or open match. The Over is @ 1.95 and the Under is @ 1.84.
Should it end with exactly 2 goals then the stake is returned.
