There is a betting tip in the big game from Finland on Friday night. HJK Helsinki host VPS in a game which pitches first versus third. Just four points separate the two teams over the first seventeen games of the season, but the layers make HJK racing certainties. We don’t.

Match: HJK Helsinki v VPS
Betting tip: Lay Helsinki
Best Odds: 1.43 with Betfair
Kick off: 16:30 12/07/2013

Vaasa betting tipHJK Helsinki are worthy favourites on Friday night, but their price is minuscule and there is margin to be had taking them on. The home form of the League leaders reads four wins, two draws and three defeats from nine games. Hardly compelling form for very small odds on prices. Their away from is actually superior by some way, so the tiny quotes look misplaced. One case for pricing HJK this small is the back to back defeats suffered by Vaasa, but they were only the third and fourth defeats of a seventeen game campaign, and VPS remain in the title hunt, just four points behind today’s opponents. Away from home they have avoided defeat in seven of nine games (winning five) and they are strong foes for the title jollies Helsinki. The hosts should certainly be favourites, but not as short as they are.

Football Betting Tip

Lay Helsinki at 1.43 with Betfair. Alternatively, for those not comfortable laying, back VPS at +0.5 on the Asian handicap with Bet365, though this erodes some of the value.
