Finland provides a betting tip on Thursday. The Veikkausliiga sees FC Lahti host VPS (Vaasa) with the visitors hot on the heels of early leaders HJK Helsinki. With the home side in poor form, are they able to force an upset or will VPS put pressure on the teams around them with a win?
Match: FC Lahti vs VPS
Betting tip: Back VPS to Win
Best Odds: 3.46 with Pinnacle
Kick Off: 16:30 13/06/2013
The layers make FC Lahti favourites here, but it is a struggle to see why. They have lost six of the last seven, and three of their four home games (the most recent three). They sit one off the foot of the table (separated only by goal difference) and really struggle for goals. They have mustered five all season and just two at home – they are the lowest scorers in the division. They have failed to score in five of the last seven, and have recorded no clean sheets during that run. When totting up those statistics it is difficult to justify favouritism, especially when facing a side as defensively strong as second placed VPS. The visitors have let in four in six games on the road, and that includes a trip to leaders Helsinki – where they won. Their away record is very good overall, with four wins and a draw being secured, with just a single defeat from their six games thus far. The price on an away victory looks huge and is the value bet of the Finnish season so far.
