The best betting advice for Ilves vs HJK Helsinki
Ilves vs HJK Helsinki – Over 2.5 goals – Odds 2.35 - CampeonBet
Can the reigning champions claim another victory this weekend, or will Ilves be able to surprise everyone with another result at home? With two games in their hand, Ilves are leading the table with a two-point gap.
Ilves do come into this clash unbeaten at home, winning three and drawing three at the Tammelan Stadion in Tampere. They’ve been relying on their home results to keep them in the top of the table. However, they’ve been able to turn their own ground into a fortress this season, but will that record hold out against a HJK side who are looking good for more success?
Meanwhile, HJK have beaten HB Torshavn in the CHL Qualifications (5-2) and are through to the next round of the qualifications, now their focus is the Veikkausliiga and could take over the first spot if they beat Ilves.
Both teams are low scoring teams, HJK 18 goals in 16 games and Ilves have scored 18 in 14 games. And Ilves have only conceded 8 goals so far this season, so in normal circumstances, this match should go under 2.5 goals, but HJK just played two days ago in the Faroe Islands and there could be fatigue in the team.
I think it will be an open game as both teams will go for the win. I’m backing over 2.5 goals as the price, in my opinion, are too high.
