Back Over 3.5 Goals @ 2.166/5 in Jong AZ Alkmaar v Almere City

Tobias Gourlay launches into the new week from the Dutch second tier

Jong AZ Alkmaar v Almere City
Monday 19:00

In Portugal yesterday, Kev finished his shift on a high as Benfica won 2-0 at Pacos de Ferreira to land his handicap bet. As he puts his feet up for seven days, we're strapping into the chair for a shift that begins in the Netherlands.

In the second-tier Eerste Divisie, Almere City's last two league visits to Jong AZ Alkmaar have finished 4-1 and, last season, 2-3. We like the odds-against price on the pair serving up Over 3.5 Goals again this evening.

This term, Jong AZ won only one of their first seven home matches. Since then, they have won four in a row. However, they have still conceded in all four of those recent victories and are now 10 league games without a clean sheet at Sportcomplex Kalverhoek. Five of their last seven on home turf have delivered Over 3.5 Goals.

Visiting Almere have been just as poor at the back, notching just a single clean sheet from 11 away games. Better for them, the Black Sheep have scored themselves in 9/11. With 6/9 getting Over 3.5 Goals recently, that's our bet for today.
