Football Bet of the Day: Lions to roar in Portugal

Portuguese football fans
Covilha and Braga B could surprise the neutrals in Portugal

The Lions of Covilha entertain Braga B this afternoon and Tobias Gourlay's unusually optimistic about the outlook for goals

"Saying 'Yes' to Both Teams to Score? has been the right thing to do in 9/13 Braga B away matches"

Back Both Teams to Score @ 2.3211/8 in Covilha v Braga B

Covilha v Braga B
Sunday 15:00

Chile scored a last-minute winner to beat Sweden 2-1 in Solna last night. Our bet went south and we're following it all the way down to Portugal for our final bet of this week.

In the Segunda Liga, 14th-placed Sporting Covilha entertain second-bottom Braga B. The visitors won this fixture 3-1 last season and we're gently optimistic that this afternoon's game might be more entertaining than the markets would have us believe.

Last time out on home turf, Covilha lost 3-1 to Benfica B. After a good run, it was the third home game in a row that they had conceded at least once. At the other end, the Lions of the Mountain have scored in 10/13 since the start of term and that too is persuading us towards Both Teams to Score at a bigger-than-usual price.

Saying 'Yes' to Both Teams to Score? has also been the right thing to do in 9/13 Braga B away matches, including six of the last eight. Most recently, they found the back of the net in a 2-1 defeat at top-of-the-table Nacional. We're backing them to do the same again today.
