Its Week 28 of the NPFL and a very special edition for our readers. We will be sending our betting tips straight to your email.
Wikki Tourists FC vs Kano Pillars FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
Wikki Tourists are very good when it comes to home matches. They have basically capitalized on home matches in getting maximum points that have kept them 15th in the log. They have won all their last 6 home matches in the league so far. I expect them to continue their good run of home matches by getting all maximum 3 points in this one.
Kano Pillars on the other hand have been very dismal away from home this season. They are one of the teams in the NPFL that is yet to record a single away win in the league. They have just managed to get just 4points in 13 away matches which is very appalling. The 4 points they got all came from games they managed to get a draw in. Expect the Kano boys to drop points against Wikki this Sunday
Rangers Int’l FC vs Shooting Stars FC: Home Win & Over 2.5
Rangers have struggled over the years against Shooting Stars. Enugu Rangers have lost twice against Shooting Stars in their last 3 encounters. The former champions will be looking towards consolidating their good run of form and also getting a victory against a team they have always struggled to beat in recent times. Over the weekend Rangers lost against Lobi Stars in a high scoring game that ended 3:1. Expect the Enugu Boys who are currently on 12th position on the log to defeat Shooting Stars that a currently on a run of bad from.
Shooting Stars have lost all their last 6 away games so far. Infact they have just managed to get just 3 points from all their away travels. The Cathedral will be a difficult ground for them to even get a draw this time. Lets lookout for a high scoring game on Sunday
Katsina United FC vs Lobi Stars FC: Draw & Under 2.5
This is a match is obviously going to end in a draw this weekend. The two teams are currently in a good run of form and will be squaring it out against each other come Sunday. Katsina United knows how to do the business on home ground as they have played 13 home matches and have won 10 out of them and yet to lose a game at home. This record means they are yet to loose a single match at the Katsina Township Stadium.
Basically, Lobi Stars are a very difficult side in the NPFL. This is a side that knows how to scratch out results in the league irrespective of the grounds they are playing in. Lobi Stars are one of the few sides in the league that have succeeded in winning a match away from home. They have gotten good 6points from their away travels which is a good one considering how difficult it is to comb out those points in the NPFL expecially when you are not playing on home grounds. I expect Lobi Stars to give Katsina United a run for their money when the two sides meet on sunday.
Remo Stars FC vs FC Ifeanyi Ubah: Away Win or Draw & Under 2.5
Remo Stars have lost more matches at home than any other team in the NPFL this season. They have also complemented that by getting the least points from 27 games so far that reflected in their position as the last team in the NPFL log. Remo Stars will definitely struggle against Ifeanyi Ubah who are currently 6th on the log with 41points.
The South West has been a favourable ground for FC Ifeanyi Ubah this season. They proved it by defeating Shooting Stars at Ibadan. FC Ifeanyi Ubah are one very team that knows how to do the business especially away from home. They have 5 away points to their ranks and will be looking towards increasing it by either getting a win or a draw at Shagamu come Sunday.
Enyimba Int’l FC vs Niger Tornadoes FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
Their is no question about this fixture on who goes home with all three points at the end of the day. Eyimba FC are very strong and formidable at home. The major problem they have had over the season has been getting good results away from home. They will be looking towards extending their good run of home wins to the 7th one consecutively when they play Niger Tornadoes who have all lost in their last 9 away matches in the NPFL. This match is poised to be a low scoring one as the two teams will be looking to hold their own and get something out of the game.
Plateau United FC vs Akwa United FC: Home Win & Over 2.5
This match will be the match of the weekend. Plateau United will be looking towards getting back to winning ways after they recorded a very poor result over the weekend against El-Kanemi Warriors. Kenedy Boboye’s boys will be looking towards restoring their 5points lead again to keep their title hopes alive. Plateau United are currently first on the log and are yet to lose a single game at home. Expect the Jos based team to get maximum points in this one
If there is anyone that can stop Plateau United in Jos it will certainly be Akwa United. When it comes to getting good results away from home Akwa United is one team that can make that happen. It will be very difficult for Akwa United to take all 3points in Jos but expect them to at least get a single goal in the game.
Gombe United FC vs El-Kanemi Warriors FC: Home Win & Under 2.5
El-Kanemi Warriors have only managed to get just 3points in 13 matches they have played away from home this season. They are perennial strugglers when it comes to away matches. The last time they got a good result away from home is way back in Februry when they won Abia Warriors. Gombe United have also kept it tight and strong at home. Gombe United are yet to lose a single match at home this season. Expect the home team to take all 3 points in this low scoring encounter.
Abia Warriors FC vs Nasarawa United FC: Home Win & Over 2.5
Abia Warriors are very good at home in the NPFL. The last time they slipped at home is way back February when they lost to El-Kanemi Warriors. They are very difficult to beat at home ground. This match will be a very open one as the two teams have every potential to get at least a single goal but the most resilient team will be clinching all three points in this one. There is a a possibility of a 2:1 Scoreline in this match.
Nasarawa United are yet to beat Abia Warriors at home in the NPFL. They lost when they visited Abia in 2016. It has been very difficult on the road for Nasarawa United. They are yet to record a single victory away from home in the league. They have just managed to get just 4points from 13 away matches and all coming from draws. Expect their away woes to continue on Sunday at Umuahia Township Stadium.
ABS FC vs Sunshine Stars FC: Home Win & Over 2.5
The last time Sunshine Stars managed to get a good result away from home is in February. Sunshine Stars have basically lost eight consecutive away matches in a row. This record means that they are very poor travelers when it comes to the NPFL. This string of bad results also reflects in their position on the log as they are just 6points above the last team Remo Stars.
Bukola Saraki Boys will be looking at improving on their bad run of form by securing a vital win at Ilorin come Sunday. They will be bouncing back from their 2:1 defeat to MFM last week to clinch all 3points in this particular one. Lets expect a high scoring game at the end.
