Football Bet of the Day: Goals to go big in Japan
In the Land of the Rising Sun, Tobias Gourlay's going to be up with the larks on Saturday morning
"Under Miguel Angel Lotina, Tokyo-Verdy have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in 23/35 home matches"
Tokyo-V v Omiya
Union Comercio beat Comerciantes Unidos 2-0 in Peru last night to land our Under 2.5 Goals bet. It's a result that sets us up well for the long trip to Japan.
Saturday morning brings a choice of eight J League 2 games and we know exactly which one we'll be watching. Under ex-Deportivo La Coruna boss Miguel Angel Lotina, third-placed Tokyo-Verdy have delivered Over 2.5 Goals in 23/35 home matches, including four of the most recent five. They've scored three on their own in the same four of those five and we fancy they can rack up a few against Omiya Ardija this weekend.
Relegated from the J League last season, Omiya are running seventh in the 22-team second tier. On the road this term, Masatada Ishii's men have scored in 12/12. They've managed just three clean sheets - all against teams now in the bottom six - and 9/12 have got to Over 2.5 Goals in total. We're very pleasantly surprised to see the Sportsbook offering even money on another high scorer at Ajinomoto Stadium tomorrow morning.
