FC Tokyo – Kashiwa Reysol:
FC Tokyo lost their last match but are still in a solid 2nd place. They got 7-2-2 at home, and I expect their good home-record to continue here. Likely to make a few changes from the team that lost the match, but still look set to field a strong side.
Reysol have lost 4 out of their last matches and are reaching for straws lately changing their formation and players from one game to another. The manager seems to have no idea what he’s doing, and a good example of that is the fact that he fields Segawa and Esaka as FWs. Both are good players, but they’ve never been a striker or particularly lethal in front of goal, and considering they got Cristiano and Ramon Lopes also in the team it doesn’t make much sense.
A -0,25 line on Tokyo seems like a safe bet here, and I also like the Over 2,5 line.
