Scotland: 1st leg ended 2-2.
Falkirk/Dundee over 2.5 @-118, Falkirk to win @+125 - another one of those scenarios where I just feel the result of the first leg will play a large part of how the flow of the 2nd leg will go. Once the first goal is scored by either team, the floodgates will open. These two finished 2nd & 3rd during regular season separated by just 3 pts; but in different ways. Falkirk had the 2nd most goals score at home of any team, while Dundee had the 3rd fewest on road with just 4 wins out of the 18 roadies. Though Falkirk can settle for a low scoring draw and still advance theyve won both matches on their home ground this year (3-0, 3-1) makes this all the stronger.
VPS to win @-110, JJK/VPS over 2.5 @+110 - at the beginning of the season JJK was expected to be one of the relegation candidates. And after 6 games they appear to be well on their way still being winless and conceding 14 goals.2nd place VPS have been playing fairly well and scoring/conceding in bunches (25 total goals in 7 matches). But theyve played all the tough teams whom are expected to challenge for the title, including HJK whom theyve played twice already. So now they get one of the weaker teams and though they are on the road, they should be able to find the back of the net a few times & grab the 3 pts here.
USA: not sure if this will be televised or not as game of week, if so.....i seriously FEAR the Lalas-jinx. history tells me to wait until 5 minutes before when they ask the panel "what should we expect to see tonight?"..... whatever he says, the opposite usually happens. dont laugh, a friend and I have written, documented proof to support that comment. and he is currently in mid-season form (bleep!!) anyways.....
NY/Toronto over 2.5 @-127 - both these squads had started off their seasons slow due to Intl duties and Cup matches galore; but over the past several weeks each has really started picking up the pace. Especially in the 'goals scored' column. NY coming off consecutive losses whilst Toronto currently riding a 6 match winning streak. to me, its a toss-up regarding the winner, Im heading for the goals instead, 6 of the last 8 H2H's have seen 3+ goals (as a matter of fact, in 5 times one of the two had scored 3 goals in the game). Having a hard time seeing this staying under the number.
but then again................. Lalas.
GL to all
