A hotbed of mayhem, chaos and the entirely unforeseen, the Europa League accumulator equation is one of the most difficult to crack.
Many a multiple has sunk after having its hull perforated by an unpronounceable-named minnow’s slaying of a European kingpin, but this match-betting unpredictability opens the door to another corridor where the opportunity to turn a profit is much greater.
The over/under 2.5-goal market is the hot spot to pan for gold and bwin have boosted the price of at least three strikes falling in each of tonight’s games involving Premier League representatives to 15/2.
It’s a punt that offers plenty of promise, as indicated below:
Tottenham v Fiorentina – Over 2.5 goals @ 91/100
Unable to kick the habit of winning 2-1, backing any Spurs match to produce at least three net bulgers is a no-brainer.
Only one of their last half-dozen on the homestead has failed to cross the line in question, with 24 being registered across this period.
The same can be said of five of Fiorentina’s last eight, a run that has included two 3-1’s, a 3-2 and a 4-3.
Liverpool v Besiktas – Over 2.5 goals @ 19/20
Brendan Rodgers’ rejuvenated Reds have scored at least twice in four of their last five ahead of this one.
The return of Daniel Sturridge is partly responsible for this mini deluge and he’s in line to make his European debut for Liverpool this evening.
He has notched twice in two starts and three substitute appearances since returning from injury against West Ham.
Besiktas – who have won ten of their last 11 to climb to the Super Lig summit – have their own goal machine to ensure this one sees three notched at least.
Last season’s scourge of Anfield, Demba Ba, is back in town and is in scintillating form, having bagged 14 in his last 13.
Young Boys v Everton – Over 2.5 goals @ 95/100
The Toffees don’t score many, but they could feasibly be on the end of a pounding in Wankdorf.
An under-strength team travel to Switzerland to face a Young Boys outfit that have scored 12 goals in four home matches and have failed to notch fewer than two (their lowest tally coming against the might of Napoli) in front of their own fans in this competition since the group stage started.
