Football Bet of the Day: Expect defences to be faulty in Basel
It's been a week of fluctuating fortunes for our Kev, but he thinks he's found another odds-against winner.
"The last three meetings between these two have featured at least four goals, including 7-1 and 5-1 blowouts."
Don't miss this Swiss spectacular
Basel v Young Boys
Sunday 02 December, 15:00
A tale of two penalties in Sinsheim, as our boys Schalke came back from a goal down to draw 1-1 at Hoffenheim last night, justifying the decision to lay the hosts at odds-on.
Three winners and three losing bets this week, so we'll try to move further into the black by moving from southern Germany to Switzerland, because deposed champions Basel are facing the team that knocked them off their perch, Young Boys of Berne.
Basel's fall from grace has been swift and brutal. Young Boys ended their domination of the Swiss Super League last term, and earlier in this campaign, YBB shredded them 7-1 in the Swiss capital. Although Basel have recovered slightly since that hammering, they are now 16 points adrift of their tormentors.
Although Young Boys have fallen short in the Champions League, they have ripped up the Swiss Super League yet again, taking 40 points from an available 45. They have scored an eye-watering 47 goals in just 15 games.
I fancy this clash to feature plenty of goals once again, and I'll plump for Over 3.5 Goals at [2.32]. That bet has landed in nine of YBB' 15 league games, and eight of Basel's 15 league outings. Also, if you look at recent clashes between these two old foes, the last three have all featured at least four goals.
Points Staked: 175
Points Returned: 185.32
P/L: +10.32 points
Back Over 3.5 Goals at [2.32]
