Missing/Bench:
DF Kikuchi (R/I)
MF Okamoto (R)
FW Okada (R)

————————————————

1-1-1 so far for Marinos, and they looked rather poor in both their 2 first matches. Took a nice win away vs Albirex last round though, but aren’t hitting on all sylinders just yet.

Sagan also have 1-1-1, and havent really looked like much so far. Beat rivals Avispa at home in R1, but have had 2 disappointing matches after that.  Think they will be in for a struggle here as I expect Marinos to continue from where they left last round, and pick up 3 new points. Looks very under this one.

Prediction: 1-0 or 2-0

My odds: -0,5 @  1,81 / Over 2 @  1,83
Market Price: -0,5 @ 1,85 / Over 2 @ 1,81

13Okubo (K) – 11Kobayashi

Missing/Bench:
DF Takeoka (R)

————————————————————

Kofu have looked quite good so far, and picked up 4 points from 2 away-matches. They lost their opening game at home 0-1 vs Gamba, but played a good game.

Kawasaki have looked very good offensively, and scored 8 goals already in 3 matches.  Also struggled in defence though, but showed good comeback skills in their last 2 matches.   Are the much better team here, and think they can continue their good form.  Its under vs over, so tricky total, but leaning towards under.

Prediction: 0-1 or 1-1

My odds: +0,25 @  1,93 / Over 2,25 @  1,89
Market Price: +0,5 @ 2,02 / Over 2,25 @ 1,88

Missing/Bench:
—————————————————————
Albirex won their opening match cs Shonan, but have looked poor in their other matches and have 2 straight losses now. Don’t rate them this season, and think they will struggle here as well.

Reysol only have 1 point so far ,but have actually played quite good and deserved more from their matches I think.  Still finding their feet, and it didn’t help that their manager Mendes stepped down this week either for personal reasons.  Think they will bounce back from that with a win here, and expect goals too.

Prediction: 1-2

My odds: +0,25 @  1,81 / Over 2,75 @  2,04
Market Price: DNB @ 1,80 / Over 2,5 @ 1,90

Missing/Bench:
GK Rokutan (R)
MF Fujimura (R)

———————————————————-

Nagoya have looked quite good so far, and picked up 4 points from 3 tough matches. Came close to winning vs Kawasaki away last round actually.

6 points from 3 matches for Vegalta’s sake, and they have beaten relatively strong teams like Marinos and Kashima.  Looked very  under overall so far, but still think we could see goals here as I expect Nagoya to approach the game very offensively. Wanna back the home-team for the win too.

Prediction: 2-1

My odds: -0,25 @  1,82 / Over 2,5 @  1,89
Market Price: -0,25 @ 2,01 / Over 2,25 @ 1,7

Bets:
Nagoya -0,25 @ 2,01 (5 units)
Over 2,25 @1,76 (2,5 units)

20Maeda (I) – 44Abe

Missing/Bench:
DF Komano (R)
MF Ha (R)
MF Ishikawa (S/R)
————————————————————-

6 points so far for Kashima, and all 3 matches have looked extremely under.  Are known as a good home-team, and won 1-0 vs Sagan in their first game there.

Tokyo also got 6 points, and can be happy with their season so far I think, even though they havent impressed too much playwise. Also have ACL to think about, and played another match last weekend.  Rate Kashima as the better team, and with the home-advantage as well I expect all 3 points to end up with them.

Prediction: 1-0 or 2-0

My odds: -0,25 @  1,84 / Over 2,5 @  2,10
Market Price: -0,75 @ 1,99 / Over 2,5 @ 1,90

Bets:
Tokyo 1×2 @ 5,05 (2 units)

FW Patric (R/I)
———————————————————-

Kobe been a bit all over the place so far, but shown in the 6-3 win vs Albirex that they have qualities in their team, especially up front.

Gamba are back on track with 2 wins now, but have struggled more in ACL and lost 1-2 in China midweek.  With a long travel back and a few players missing here I think Kobe have a good chance at 3 points but it’s not gonna be easy.  Think we could see some goals though.

Prediction: 2-1 or 2-2

My odds: DNB @ 2,08 / Over 2,75 @  1,87
Market Price: +0,25 @ 2,02 / Over 2,5 @ 1,90

Over 2,5 @ 1,90 (5 units)

10Jogo(I) – 15Sueyoshi (I) – 6Danilson – 13Tameda
7Kanamori – 17Wellington (I)

Missing/Bench:
DF Saneto (R)

——————————————————

Iwata with 2 strong matches in a row now, and have looked overall pretty competitive in their first year back in J1.

Avispa have struggled more, and only have 1 point from their opening 3 matches. Had a tough schedule though, and could be in for another difficult match here I think.  Iwata should be the favorite, but its still early in the season and anything can happen.

Prediction: 2-1

My odds: -0,25 @  1,89 / Over 2,5 @  2,00
Market Price: -0,5 @ 2,00 / Over 2,5 @ 2,00

Bets:
None

14Mikic – 6Aoyama(I) – 37Miyahara– 18Kashiwa
9Utaka– 30Shibasaki
11Sato(K)

Missing/Bench:
MF Ka.Morisaki (R)
MF Moritani (S/R)
————————————————————–

Good start for Omiya in their first year back in J1, but they fell short to GAmba last round losing 1-2 away.

Hiroshima have had a very poor start on the other hand, and are still without a win in the league. They took their first win in ACL midweek, so that might have given them some confidence here.  Are the better team for sure, and will get back on the winning track soon I think, and want to back them here.

Prediction: 1-2 or 0-2

My odds: +0,5 @ 1,84 / Over 2,5 @  2,05
Market Price: +0,5 @ 2,00 / Over 2,5 @ 1,86

Bets:
None

20Lee – 9Muto (I)
30Koroki

Missing/Bench:

—————————————————————-

2 heartbreaking last-minute equalizers in a row now for Shonan that have costed them the win, but they can only blame themselves.  It also costed me a very big profit as I had them at high 1×2 odds to win both games, but luckily salvaged a bit of the profit live.

Urawa have 2 wins so far, and have looked overall good even though the 1-2 loss vs Iwata at home in R2 were disappointing. Great comeback in China to earn a 2-2 draw vs giants Evergrande, and the spirit should be high here.  The long travel might have costed them a bit though, but still think they will come out of top of this one in what should be an entertaining match with goals at both ends.

Prediction: 1-2 or 2-2

My odds: +0,25 @  2,08 / Over 2,75 @  1,81
Market Price: +0,75 @ 1,96 / Over 2,75 @ 1,98

Bets:
Shonan 1×2 @ 4,92 (1,5 unit)
Over 2,75 @ 1,98 (5 units)
