Rivers United vs Wikki Tourists FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
Rivers United suffered a shock defeat against Sunshine Stars during the mid-week games. The Port Harcourt based team will be looking at making amendments and doing it in grand style against Wikki Tourists who are poor travelers in the league. The loss against Sunshine Stars is the first time Rivers United lost at home after 31 matches since 2015. This match will be a low scoring one and the home team will take all 3points in this one.
Wikki Tourists on the other hand have been very woeful when it comes to playing away from home in the NPFL. They have played 15 matches away from home this season. They lost 14 of those matches and were able to get just a single draw in those matches. The stat proves that this one will be easy pickings for the home team Rivers United.
ABS FC vs Rangers Int’l FC: Home Win or Draw
ABS are yet to record a single victory in their last 6 games in the NPFL. They have managed to get 2 points in those games. This terrible form makes them very gullible even at home matches. The possibility of them getting a victory in this match will be very low. ABS is currently 18th on the log with 36points. Even though they have this terrible form record, it will be advisable for punters to back them up for either a victory or a draw based on their home antecedents
Rangers on the other hand have not been quite prolific on the road in the NPFL so far. They have just managed to get just 5points from all their travels this season. They are yet to record a single victory away from home as all of those points came directly from matches they drew. This stat makes it very difficult for Rangers to take all 3points in Ilorin.

Kano Pillars FC vs Remo Stars FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
Pillars have not had it all smooth this season. Its been like a swinging pendulum for Pillars which translates to their inconsistent positive results at the end. Pillars are gradually picking up themselves by consistently pulling out great results at home. This match against Remo Stars who are currently bottom on the log will be very easy for them. There will be a 120% chance that Kano Pillars will get a 3points in this fixture.
Remo Stars are the weeping boys in the league. Kano will be a very difficult ground for them to even manage to get a draw. They have just managed to cough up 3 points from all their away travels so far and Kano will be the most difficult place to secure even a draw.

They currently have 11points away from home. This makes them the best team on away grounds.
Lobi Stars are very good side. They hardly drop points on home grounds. The last time they dropped points at home was way back in March when they played a barren draw against Ifeanyi Ubah. The odds still favours them to either get a victory or scrap out a draw in this one.
