Sporting Gijon vs FC Cartagena Match Betting Preview & Tip

After a 90+6 minute goal landed our pick yesterday we have maintained a 2-day steak from our betting previews.

Today we stay in Spain for another game in La Liga 2 that we think we have found some great value in. Sporting Gijon vs FC Cartagena takes place at 5PM GMT today and could prove to be a game full of goals.

With both teams having something to fight for at either end of the table, they will both come into this game knowing they need to take the three points. With Gijon fighting to stay in the division and on a run of four straight defeats at home they need to turn their fortunes around and Cartagena failing to pick up all three points in their last three away games means they are slipping away from the promotion race.

The previous meeting between these two did finish 0-0 but we think that could prove to be the outlier in the data that is trumped by the stakes riding on today's game.

Gijon have seen four of their last five home games see Both Teams Score and Cartagena boast the same numbers for their last five games away from home. Alongside this Gijon have seen Over 2.5 Goals in four of their last five home games and Cartagena have seen it in three of their last five.

This sets us up nicely for our value pick here:

  • Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals :: Odds: 2.40

We think this selection has a very strong chance at these odds and we are hopefully of extending our winning streak to three days. If pushed for how I think the game will play out, I would suggest that Cartagena will take all three points today with a 1-2 Win.

Enjoy the match if you choose to watch it...
