Finland provides a betting tip on Monday night when Turku PS host FC Lahti. The Veikkausliiga is building towards a climax in the Autumn, but neither of these sides will be particularly happy with the season so far. Separated by just 3 points, both sit in the bottom half, so is there value to be had?
Match: Turku PS v FC Lahti
Betting tip: Back FC Lahti
Best Odds: 3.75 with Sportingbet
Kick off: 16:30 05/08/2013
FC Lahti are hit and miss, but they are available at a price which merits consideration. Two months ago they were a train wreck, but since then, they have won six of nine, including wins at KuPS and third placed Vaasa last time out (3-0). Two of the three defeats came versus Helsinki and FC Honka – the two title chasers who head the table. They are much improved, and layers have not yet caught up. Turku PS have tailed off in recent weeks, winning just one of the last eight, and none of the last six. They have not played any of the top four during that run, so those fixtures should have been comfortable too. The price on an away win is contracting and if it drops much further the value will be gone, but certainly Lahti are worth a bet at current prices. Turku have been drawing a lot, but it is all or nothing with Lahti so we side with the away win, rather than a lay of the hosts.
