With the World Cup taking a couple of days off, Tobias Gourlay's head has been turned by one of tonight's games in Finland

"IFK Mariehamn have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in seven of their last eight games at Wiklof Holding Arena"

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ [1.83] in IFK Mariehamn v Honka

IFK Mariehamn v Honka
Wednesday 17:00

Houston Dynamo finally got off the ground with goals in the 93rd and 95th minutes to salvage a 2-2 draw with Los Angeles FC last night. In the nick of time, those goals also landed yesterday's bet. Thank goodness no one in England had any nerves left to shred.

We're headed back in Finland today for this afternoon's Veikkausliiga clash between ninth-placed IFK Mariehamn and fifth-placed Honka.

The Islanders of Mariehamn have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in seven of their last eight games at Wiklof Holding Arena and we're backing them for another high scorer today. Going back into last season, Peter Lundberg's men have managed just one clean sheet in 13 attempts. At the other end, only top-three sides HJK Helsinki and Ilves have stopped them from scoring.

Newly promoted Honka bring something to the party too. They've conceded in 7/8 away games, but found the back of the net themselves in 6/8. Most recently, they went to Inter Turku (the team one place above Mariehamn in the table) and won 3-2. We're bracing for another barnstormer today.
