Football Bet of the Day: Panthers to defend their lair

Boavista in action
Boavista are in action tonight

After an odds-against winner in Portugal, Kev's staying put to try and land another one.

"Boavista have won their last five home games, while Tondela haven't even managed to score in six of their last nine away games."

Back Boavista to win at 2.3411/8

Boavista v Tondela

Hosts to enjoy home comforts again

After a deluge that nearly saw Desportivo Aves v Vitoria Setubal called off because of a waterlogged pitch, it rained goals in Portugal last night. Vitoria won 4-1, a scoreline that comfortably landed us an odds-against winner.

We'll stay in Portugal, and hop across to the city of Porto. Boavista are up against Tondela, and I reckon the hosts are over-priced for the win.

Boavista have had a certain duality about their performances in the last ten games. They have won the last five contests at their Estadio do Bessa, but they have lost their last five matches on the road. They are consistently inconsistent, but they certainly don't lack motivation, as they could still sneak into a European spot.

Tondela are closing in on safety, and survival was their primary goal at the start of the season. They have collected more points on the road than they have at home, but recently they have started to wobble on their travels. The Auriverdes have failed to score in six of their last nine away matches, and they have lost five of those games. They somehow contrived to lose 3-0 at rock-bottom Estoril a couple of months ago, which takes some doing.

Boavista have been incredibly strong at home in the last couple of months, and they are a hefty 2.3411/8 to secure a sixth consecutive victory on home soil. Against limited opponents, that's a price I'm willing to accept.
