The Nigerian Professional Football League is hitting up as teams are gearing up for another round of battle for points. The League is one of the toughest in the world as home teams most of the time are tough nuts to crack. Week 20 provided a serious question to the dominance of home teams in the league as three away victories were recorded. Last weeks matches failed to record an away win but there were lots of goals (23) in all the encounters. Naijafootballplus presents another opportunity for our readers to utilize this betting tip from our professional tipsters.

Kano Pillars Vs Lobi Stars: Home Win & Under 2.5
Kano Pillars have been in a poor run of form lately which reflects in them wining just one match out of their last 6 matches in the NPFL. The Kano boys are very strong when it comes to home matches. They are very formidable at home. Even though Akwa United managed to get a victory in Kano in April, other teams find it very difficult to achieve that feat. Expect the home team to carry the day in this low scoring encounter. Lobi have also been poor on the road this season, they just managed to get a victory away to Sunshine for the first time this campaign. The two teams have met 12 times from 2012 till date. The last time Lobi got a point in Kano was in 2013 a 1-1 draw. That has been their best result in Kano.
MFM FC Vs Ifeanyi Ubah: Draw & GG
This match is arguably the match of the weekend. The two teams have played 3 times and have gotten single victories apiece and the third ended in a draw. MFM who are currently 4th on the log, tied on the same point with FC Ifeanyi Ubah who are 3rd with 34 points respectively will be coming into this particular encounter with two of their best players in doubt for this particular one. Stephen Odey and Sikiru Olatunbosun are back in the country after international duties with the Super Eagles.
