J.League 1 R25 – Tokyo vs Sagan Preview

FC Tokyo – Sagan Tosu: Tokyo seemed to be a genuine contender for the title a couple of weeks ago, but they have now gone 4 matches in a row without winning. They’ve looked poor play-wise as well and could easily suffer another setback here I think. Sagan are slowly but steadily improving, and now…

J.League 1 R25 – Hiroshima vs Kashima Preview

Sanfrecce Hiroshima – Kashima Antlers: With just 3 wins in their last 8 matches Sanfrecce’s form have dipped a bit lately and their what seemed like a safe lead at the top of the table have now shrunk to only 6 points, and can further shrink to 3 points if Kawasaki win their game in…

J.League 1 R25 – Gamba vs Kawasaki Preview

Gamba Osaka – Kawasaki Frontale: Kawasaki are looking very solid at the moment and only got 1 loss in their last 10 league matches. They are also the best away-team in the league next to Hiroshima, so it might be stupid to go against them here. But fact is that Gamba have taken 19 out…

J.League 1 R25 – Iwata vs Nagoya Preview

Jubilo Iwata – Nagoya Grampus: Iwata are a bit in the middle of nowhere on the table, and their form the last couple of months have been quite poor with just 2 wins on their last 11 matches. They have been missing several key members for almost the entire season, so they can still be…

J.League 1 R25 – Urawa vs Cerezo Preview

Urawa Reds – Cerezo Osaka: Odds on Urawa looks spot-on here so not the most interesting of match. There’s some tiny value on the Under, but not enough so there will be no bets for me here. Expected Starting Lineup Urawa: 3-3-2-2: 1Nishikawa 31Iwanami – 2Mauricio – 5Makino(I) 27Hashioka –16Aoki – 10Kashiwagi (I) – 3Ugajin…

J.League 1 R25 – Vegalta vs Shimizu Preview

Vegalta Sendai – Shimizu S-Pulse: 11 out of Vegalta’s last 12 matches have gone over 2,5 goals, and for Shimizu 9 out of their last 11 matches have also been Over 2,5. That we can get such a good price on the Over here then is beyond me, and I expect goals at both ends…

J.League 1 R25 – Marinos vs Reysol Preview

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…

J.League 1 R25 – Consadole vs Kobe Preview

Consadole Sapporo – Vissel Kobe: Consadole with 2 wins in a row,  and despite going behind 0-2 vs Tokyo and 0-1 vs Shimizu and they showed good team-strength to turn the match around. They had 2 decent performances prior to that as well, and are still in an impressive 4th place. They are still missing…

J.League 1 R25 – Nagasaki vs Shonan Preview

V-Varen Nagasaki – Shonan Bellmare: Nagasaki have lost 11 out of their last 14 matches in the league and are heading straight for J2 in their current form.  They seem desperate, and are making lots of changes to their starting lineup from one match to another.  That’s also the case here, with fringe players Omoto…

J.League 1 R24 – Betting Previews

No time for full previews this round so will only post my betting selections: High (60 units): Nagoya +0,5 @ 1,78 Nagoya – Urawa Over 2,75 @1,85 Kobe -0,25 @ 1,76 Medium (30 units): Vegalta +1 @ 1,94 Shimizu – Consadole Over 2,25 @ 1,76 Consadole +0,25 @ 1,86 Cerezo – Hiroshima Over 2,5 @…

J.League 1 R23 – Previews

(No time for full previews for the matches below) Shimizu S-Pulse – Urawa Reds: I got a big pref on Urawa here but odds seems correct so no value.  Think we can see some goals though as both teams have been involved in some high-scoring matches lately. Urawa in particular look a lot more dangerous…

J.League 1 R23 – Consadole vs Tokyo Preview

Consadole Sapporo – FC Tokyo: Consadole are not in the best of form firth just 1-3-1 on their last 5, but they have been playing fairly well.  Are a bit weakened in the middle here with captain Miyazawa out of the lineup as well as Miyoshi but they got decent cover in both positions. Tokyo…
