      Heerenveen vs Excelsior Predictions

      Heerenveen find themselves in a disappointing 11th place, they’ve been on a bit of yo-yo performance wise. Last weekend, they suffered a crushing defeat 5-2 to Ajax away from home. Before that, their previous three results were 3-0, 1-3 and 4-1.

      They need to string some consistent wins together, but it starts by beating Excelsior on Friday evening. We’re nearing the halfway mark in the Dutch Eredivisie season and time is running out if Heerenveen want to be a legitimate Europa League place competitor again in 2015/16.

      Excelsior are win-less in three straight games, though draws with Twente and Heracles aren’t necessarily poor results. They’ve got just one win in their last five games, but they’re in a position that they’ll feel happy about and they have the advantage right now in the relegation battle.

      Three Reasons for Betting Tips

      1. Heerenveen score some goals

      There’s no questioning Heerenveen’s attacking quality and we think that they’re strong enough to get past Exclesior, in particular when they have home field advantage. It fits in with their recent pattern of form too.

      2. Excelsior defensive challenges

      They’ve allowed 25 goals in 15 games and we think that it’ll be a serious challenge for Excelsior to stay competitive in this match-up. They’re just a little fragile and against Heerenveen, they could fall behind quickly.

      3. Looking at the odds

      It’s not easy to find great odds for this game because Heerenveen don’t necessarily have guaranteed goal-scoring dominant pedigree. There’s a chance that this game could become more of a slugfest than our best guess and we like the stronger and safer 4/6 win line.
