After a week that's included two winners and two misses, Kev's hoping for a fun-filled Friday night in Sweden.

"Sirius have seen an Over 3.5 Goals bet land in six of their last seven league games, including a 3-2 win over tonight's opponents."

Back Over 3.5 Goals at [2.86]

IFK Gothenburg v Sirius
Friday 10 August, 18:00

Defences to be dominated tonight

As it turned out, our version of the Edinburgh Festival was like booking a 4000-seat venue for a comedy gig, but only your parents buy tickets. Even they would have left halfway through, as Hibs drew 0-0 with Molde, leaving us a full three goals short for our Over 2.5 Goals bet.

We'll return to Sweden for another crack at the top-flight Allsvenskan. IFK Gothenburg are up against Sirius, and having played out a five-goal thriller just a few weeks ago, I think we could have another belter on our hands tonight.

Both teams are on the fringes of the relegation battle, so there's every motivation to push for a win this evening. IFK's glory days are well behind them - they were the dominant team in Swedish football in 1990s, but they haven't won the league for 11 years, and finished tenth last season.

Sirius returned to the Allsvenskan after a 42-year absence in 2016, and although they finished a healthy seventh last term, they have collected a paltry 14 points from their 16 games so far.

Over 3.5 Goals is trading at [2.86] here, and you can make a good case for that wager landing. Sirius beat Gothenburg 3-2 last month, and a year ago IFK thrashed Sirius 4-0. If you look at Sirius' recent games, then you see that six of their last seven league matches have featured four goals or more.

IFK have seen an O3.5 bet pay out in three of their last seven Allsvenskan games, including two of their last four outings at the Ullevi Stadium.
