FC Groningen - NEC betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 18:45 on 12/03/2022 played @ Sportpark Lonerstraat refereed by Sander van der Eijk

FC Groningen are easily the favourites in the match this Saturday, but we wouldn’t call a Home Win bet at the odds of 2.00 safe, exactly. They are more likely to win than not, but NEC may have a few tricks up their sleeve yet.

The visitors would need to pull off quite a stunt in order to come out victorious. They are severely outmatched in this outing – the 4.00 away win odds alone should speak volumes.

FC Groningen supporters could not believe their eyes when they saw their team take a first-half lead last time out in the Eredivisie. And instead of getting run over as most bookies online expected, FC Groningen emerged with a huge point in a Feyenoord draw.

NEC’s previous Eredivisie home match against AZ Alkmaar was heavily skewed against them, with most online bookmakers pricing a home win at 6.50. They surprisingly held on to a draw until half-time, but it all came to a head in the later stages of the game. The final result was a painful 1:3 defeat.

Whenever we see a match at Sportpark Lonerstraat it seems to be a good chance for Under 5 Goals bets. The way FC Groningen have been playing is the main culprit here – their two previous home games ended with barely any goals in total.

NEC’s recent track record shows a very concerning amount of concessions – 8 of them in their previous 3 matches, to be exact. While it’s obvious their defence has a lot of problems, Over markets might be a good option for this match.

The last time we saw these two squads play against each other was earlier in this Eredivisie season. FC Groningen narrowly lost. With the home-field advantage on their side this time, however, most bookies see them as the favourites.

NEC will have an even more difficult time of this match than what was expected. They will be missing at least a few players due to injury - Rens Van Eijden, Jordy Bruijn, Pedro Ruiz, Wilfried Bony will all be unable to perform.

A confirmed Under 2.5 Goals market seems like a foregone conclusion for this particular match. The only thing to do now is to decide whether the relatively short 1.86 odds are worth your time. We would say they are because this bet manages to have real betting value as well.
