MARK O’HAIRE (@MarkOHaire) delivers his best bet from the continent this weekend.
Las Palmas v Malaga | Sunday 17.15 | Sky Sports Interactive
This selection is written in the stats.
Neither Las Palmas nor Malaga have been friends of goals-based punters this season and there’s plenty of reason to believe we should be opposing Both Teams To Score at 5/6 with Marathon.
The Canary Island hosts have taken seven points from 12 to move outside the relegation zone but it’s their stingy results on the island that most catch the attention – eight of their last nine when welcoming La Liga opposition have seen fewer than three goals with the same figure for those opposing BTTS.
Only four of Malaga’s 18 have featured Over 2.5 Goals whilst only one of their nine away days have produced goals for both sides. Looking further back, 11 of the Anchovies’ 17 as guests have seen one goal or fewer.
The visitors have won four on the spin keeping their sheets clean in each of their last three but Javi Gracia’s without two of his most trusted attacking lieutenants here as both Charles and Nordin Amrabat are sidelined due to bans. Without playmaker Amrabat, Malaga have W2-D0-L6 and failed to score in five.
If we took both sides’ respective home and away games from this season literally, the odds for backing ‘No’ in the Both Teams To Score market wouldn’t be far off 1/10. So 5/6 is just too good to ignore.
