Yokohama F.Marinos – Kashiwa Reysol:
Yokohama have lost 7 out of their last 9 league-matches, including 4 straight home-matches so they are really out of it and are in danger of being relegated if this continues. They suffered a couple of blows to their defence prior to this match with Nakazawa injured and Cvetinovic suspended so they will field a make-shift trio at the back.
REysol are as unpredictable as they can be, but are picking up points here and there with 3-0-2 on their last 5. Arguably they are the better team here, but I don’t trust them and don’t agree that they should be considered the favorite as they are playing away.
Marinos are unbeaten in the last 3 at home vs Reysol, and think they got a decent chance of points here as well. It also smells goals, especially with both teams being weakened defensively and there’s value in an over bet too. I’m gonna go with a low +0,25 and O2,75 here.
