After nailing his last three tips at 8/5, 10/3 and 11/5 – Will Burns returns with his selections for the Eredivisie for Saturday games and like all his tips, you will not see a ‘best bet’ under evens – good luck!
Saturday 1st March
PEC ZWOLLE vs. NEC NIJMEGEN (17:45 GMT)
Ron Jans’ Zwolle braces himself today for the visit of a NEC Nijmegen fighting for Eredivisie survival. The Nijmegen side sit 17th even thought they have only been defeated twice in 2014.
Indeed in the eight games so far in 2014, Anton Janssen has lead his side to three wins and three draws with losses coming to Eredivisie heavyweights Feyenoord (5-1) and PSV (2-0) and this is why I am backing them to grab a vital point in Zwolle this evening.
Zwolle sit in eighth place desperate to hold onto a Europa League playoff place but after holding league leaders Ajax to a 1-1 draw three weeks ago, they fell 3-1 in Cambuur and had to grab a late equaliser to snatch a point last weekend at home to Heracles. Not the greatest performances and I see 13/5 offered at Bet365 for the draw our best bet of the day.
ADO DEN HAAG vs. NAC BREDA (18:45 GMT)
NAC Breda travel to Den Haag this evening knowing that they are not out of the relegation quagmire as of yet. Although they sit in 10th spot they are only five points from the drop zone.
ADO are 15th, one place above the dreaded three bottom spots and his is due to really struggling to find the net as of late only scoring seven goals in the last six games and not notching in three of those matches.
NAC also have only scored seven in six games and I see our best bet for these two to struggle in front of goal again today. Bet365 are offering 11/10 for Under 2.5 Goals and this is a price too good to miss for this game I see being the borefest of the weekend.
GO AHEAD EAGLES vs. PSV (18:45 GMT)
Phillip Cocu takes his PSV side to Deventer tonight to face Go Ahead in search of their fifth consecutive win with still a glimmer of hope of finishing second in the Eredivisie to qualify for Champions League football next term.
Once again, I look at goals in this game and although PSV are improving they are missing a vital player at the back today as Jeffrey Bruma will be missing in central defence. Nineteen-year-old Jorrit Hendrix will replace the former Chelsea man and I can see PSV conceding to the Eagles.
The Eagles, are just two points above the relegation places and they aim this season is to consolidate their top-flight position. Young midfielder Deniz Türüç pulls the strings in the Go Ahead attacks and he will need to be on form today if they hope to get anything against PSV.
Looking at the prices today, Over 3.5 Goals offered at 6/5 by Bet Victor looks to be the best bet in this match.
VITESSE vs. RODA JC (19:45 GMT)
Jon Dahl Tomasson has a huge task ahead as his Roda side looked doomed, rock bottom of the league five points adrift of safety and unfortunately for the young Danish manager, I do not see it getting any better for him today.
Goals have been hard to find for Roda, with just three goals in the last seven games it is not looking good for the remainder of the season.
Vitesse suffered a blip at the start of the year but a great home win last week against RKC (3-1), with a weakened side, should give them some confidence. I cannot see Roda scoring today, but they cannot stop the talent of the young Chelsea lads – Christian Atsu, Lucas Piazón and Bertrand Traore.
