We head back to Japan for another betting tip from the J League. Sanfrecce Hiroshima v Jubilo Iwata may not roll off the tongue, but it does offer some value in the match odds market. Hiroshima head the table but were beaten by Urawa Reds last time out, Jubilo Iwata have just one clean sheet to their name this season, but is there cause to think they can cause an upset?
Match: Hiroshima v Jubilo Iwata
Betting tip: Back Hiroshima
Best odds: 1.91 with William Hill
Kick Off: 11:00 10/08/2013
Hiroshima have an imposing home record, and their price to record another home win looks too big, even at odds on. The J-League leaders have won six of ten at home, their two defeats coming versus second placed Yokohama and third placed Urawa. Their last three wins at home came versus Frontale, Cerezo Osaka and most recently Omiya Ardija. Those three teams were all in great form, but still succumbed to defeat, so the struggling Jubilo Iwata, who sit one off the bottom in seventeenth, look severely exposed. They have kept a side out only once in nineteen games, and have won just two games all season. When facing top four teams, home or away, they have lost five from five. They have managed to record some decent away draws, but there is little evidence to suggest the hosts should be priced as big as they are.
