J.League 1 R13 – Sagan vs Shimizu Preview

Sagan Tosu – Shimizu S-Pulse:

Sagan have set a new club record with 7 straight losses in the league, and seems to be completely lost. They haven’t always played that poor though, and came close to beating Consadole (who fielded a very weakened squad though) at home last round only to concede 2 late goals.  Things doesn’t seem to go their way, and they are still weakened up front with Ibarbo still sidelined and who has later been joined by Choi.

Shimizu varies a lot from one game to another, but picks up a decent amount of points here and there. They’ve actually been very good away, and 3 out of their 4 wins so far this season have come away.  They also tend to be very over when playing away with an average of 3,17 so far. With Sagan being 2,67 at home, the totals set on this game seems ridiculously low and I find great value in the Over 2. Also want to go against Sagan with a DNB bet on Shimizu.
