The Betpal Football Bet of the Day. Monday night witnesses a huge clash in Switzerland, with leaders St Gallen visiting 2nd placed Grasshoppers. Both are in scintillating form, so where is the value?
Match: Grasshoppers v St Gallen
Bet of the Day: St Gallen +0.5 on the Handicap
Best Odds: 1.83 with Pinnacle
Grasshopper Zurich and St Gallen have almost identical records in the Swiss Super League – both have won seven of their ten games, but St Gallen have drawn the remainder, where Grasshoppers have a single defeat on the record. Both teams have conceded just five goals during those ten games – so a tight, low scoring affair is on the cards. It is the visitors however, who look to have an edge in the big games. FC Sion and Basle are the two sides nearest to the leading pair, but Grasshoppers suffered defeat versus Sion, and could only draw with Basle – both of those clashes were at home. St Gallen meanwhile, have recorded wins over both, and beat Sion 3-0 in their own backyard. When it comes to the big matches, St Gallen have been performing. These sides drew 1-1 at the start of August, and it would be wise to keep the draw on-side again, but there seems to be some value in taking on the hosts in what will be a very close fixture.
