Football Bet of the Day: Back Mighty Lions to run amok in China

China football fans wave a flag
The Mighty Lions can draw blood in China today

Tobias Gourlay smells goals in one of today's games from the Chinese Super League


Nantong Zhiyun F.C v Cangzhou Mighty Lions
Tuesday 13:00

In Italy last night, there was a remarkable collapse. With 15 minutes to go, Bologna were 3-0 up on Juventus. The hosts were cruising to victory and our bet was on track... Then Juve scored three times and nicked a draw.

We're looking to bounce back in China, where one of today's Super League games brings ninth-placed Cangzhou Mighty Lions (W4-D2-L6) to 13th-placed Nantong Zhiyun. 3-3 would be a good result for us in this one...

Home and away, Nantong's last four games have produced 20 goals, with both teams scoring in all four and each game hitting Over 3.5 Goals individually. The hosts start as favourites for this one, despite conceding 11 in 5 at Rugao Olympic Sports Centre to this point.

After a strong start to the campaign, the Mighty Lions are now six matches without a win. They're leaking goals at an alarming rate, conceding 17 in total across those six winless games.

Going further back, 7/10 Mighty Lions games have delivered Over 3.5 Goals one way or another. At a plump price, that's our punt on today's clash.
