REASON FOR PEC ZWOLLE VS AJAX BETTING TIPS
It’s back to Eredivisie action after the winter break for PEC Zwolle and Ajax, with the hosts looking to extricate themselves from the relegation play-off place they currently occupy and Ajax attempting to overhaul table-topping Feyenoord over the second half of the campaign.
The winter break probably came at the right time for PEC, who have claimed just two points from their last six matches and scored just a solitary goal in the process. Ajax also struggled just before the break, taking just a single point from a trip to Twente and a home game with their other title rivals, PSV Eindhoven.
This match really does look to be the perfect game for Ajax to return to winning ways given the gulf in class between the two teams. This might not be a vintage Ajax side, but there is still plenty of quality in the ranks and PEC are hampered in missing a number of key players through injury and suspension, in particular Youness Mokhtar.
Ajax are averaging just a tad over two goals per game in the Eredivisie this season, which augurs well against a PEC defence that concedes at almost exactly the same rate. Ron Jans’ team actually have the worst defensive record in the league as things stand.
Ajax are a best price of 7/20 with Ladbrokes to win this match, but it should be a comfortable enough victory to back them at 41/40 on the Asian Handicap – 1.5 with bet365. With that bet, you would need Peter Bosz’s team to win by a two-goal margin or more for the bet to pay out, but that looks very likely if they perform anywhere close to what they are capable of.
With PEC lacking a goal threat and Ajax having conceded only five goals in eight games away from home, an Ajax Win to Nil at 13/10 with BetVictor looks to be a bet with some serious value.
If Ajax are as dominant as expected, they could also be worth backing on the Half-time/ Full-time Double Result. Ajax/ Ajax is available at Evens with Coral.
Perhaps the best option in terms of a correct score bet prediction would be to opt for a 3-0 Ajax win at 8/1 with William Hill.
If looking for an Anytime Goalscorer, attacking midfielder Davy Klaassen has already notched nine league goals for Ajax this term and can be backed at 6/4 with 888sport to get on the scoresheet again on Sunday.
