The J-League presents a betting tip on Wednesday morning when FC Tokyo host Sagan Tosu. Tokyo sit eighth, unable to quite keep pace with the leaders, but their opponents are hovering above the drop zone and while they are not in immediate danger, a win would do them the power of good. Can they get it on Wednesday?
Match: FC Tokyo v Sagan Tosu
Betting tip: Back FC Tokyo
Best Odds: 1.9 with Pinnacle
Kick off: 11:00 28/08/2013
FC Tokyo look well priced to beat Sagan Tosu, even at odds on. Their home record is good, with six wins from ten. When facing sides placed seventh or lower in the J-League standings, they have won six of seven (with one draw). Their recent form appears patchy – but they have faced five road trips out of their last eight games. Of the three in Tokyo, they have won two and lost the third to title chasing Yokohama. The record against lower opposition remains very impressive, so a visit from the team placed thirteenth, looks like ending in a home win. The visitors struggle away, losing six of eleven on the road. Again, drilling down into the form reveals a stronger trend – they have lost six of seven when travelling to teams in the top ten. Eighth place FC Tokyo should be able to overcome a side who concede an average of three goals a game when taking on the stronger sides in Japan.
