Tip Reasoning

Complacency will be the buzz word used by the coaching staff at HJK Helsinki as they prepare to face IFK Mariehamn in the Veikkausliiga this Tuesday. The hosts have an excellent record in the head to head and have been cruising to yet another Veikkausliiga title so far this season. However, there has been an 11 day break for sides in the division and HJK will have to be wary of their momentum being stopped.

They go into this match on the back of a six game winning streak in the league and before the break the signs for the rest of the division were pretty ominous. The hosts have managed to find the back of the net 12 times in their previous four outings and, with stats like that, it is pretty unsurprising that they have managed to build up a 10 point lead at the top of the division.

Add to that a head to head record which has seen HJK almost exclusively record a positive result and you will see why the bookies have such small odds for them to add another three points to their tally.

The task of the away side has not been made any easier by their form coming into this match and IFK Mariehamn have managed to record just a single point from their previous four outings. They have also managed just five points on the road this season, a record which is the joint second worst in the division.

With all of this in mind, it seems a home win is the only thing which is on the cards this Tuesday. However, as the odds are so short, we have to find a way of boosting the return in order to make a bet worthwhile. We think that combining a home win with there to be over 2.5 goals is the way to go and it is here where we shall be placing our money.

The goals market is something which should not be underestimated in this fixture. We have already spoken of the hosts ability in front of goal, but the fact that the visitors have found the back of the net in each of their previous 10 outings suggests that HJK will have to score at least twice in order to take the points. With this in mind, we think that backing there to be over 3.5 goals scored is an excellent way to obtain a higher return from this match.
