Will Burns returns with his betting tips for Sunday’s games and like all his selections, you will not see a ‘best bet’ under evens – good luck!
Sunday 30th March
FEYENOORD vs. GO AHEAD EAGLES (11:30 GMT)
Feyenoord will arrive at De Kuip on Sunday morning knowing that a win over Go Ahead Eagles could take them closer to Ajax who face a tough game at home to Twente.
Ronald Koeman’s only two injury worries are Joris Mathijsen doubtful with a calf problem but John Goossens is set to miss action until the end of April so this should be a very winnable game for the Rotterdam side. The dream of Champions League football next year is very within their grasp, just two points off second placed PSV with a game in hand.
Go Ahead Eagles could do with some points sitting in 15th only four points from the drop zone but only wining twice away from home this season, I cannot see them causing Feyenoord a shock. In fact, the Eagles have been losing at both half time and full time in five of their last six away games in the league. Our best bet would be for Feyenoord to win to nil which is valued at 13/10 at Bet 365.
SC CAMBUUR vs. AZ ALKMAAR (13:30 GMT)
AZ Alkmaar and head coach Dick Advocaat have been preoccupied with Europa League and KNVB Beker competition over the past few weeks. They crashed out of the KNVB Cup on Thursday with a narrow 1-0 defeat to Ajax after some shocking refereeing decisions.
Advocaat will have to pick his men back up to face the challenge of the resilient SC Cambuur at the ferocious Cambuurstadion on Sunday. Cambuur have a great home record winning five or last six and AZ’s away form has been woeful with just the solitary win and six defeats in their last eight games away from the AFAS Stadion.
Advocaat will be aiming for the Europa League playoffs and should have enough quality to keep Cambuur at bay or at least match their scoring. Jody Lukoki returns to the Cambuur line-up after suspension and should be a real threat to AZ but I can see the scores ending level at full-time. Betfair have the draw at 13/5 and this looks to be our best price for this game.
AJAX vs. FC TWENTE (13:30 GMT)
FC Twente have slim title hopes that could take a boost on Sunday afternoon if they can defeat Ajax on their own turf to move within four points of the leaders, although Frank de Boer’s men have a game in hand.
Ajax are seven points clear of third-placed Twente with just six games remaining and they are not playing at their best after injuries to Siem de Jong and Viktor Fischer have forced De Boer to make changes. However, after Thursday night’s hard fought win over AZ and an excellent free-kick from Lasse Schone the feel-good factor should have returned for the Amsterdammers.
Twente will start with two of the division’s most potent strikers in Luc Castaignos and Dušan Tadić, who boast 26 league goals between them this term. However, the guy supplying the majority of the assists Quincy Promes, is a doubt for Sunday’s game with a calf strain.
With Ajax having faltered slightly, drawing their past two Eredivisie games against SC Cambuur and NAC Breda, Twente will match up against the Eredivisie’s best defence knowing that only a win will keep their title hopes alive. I can see this one being a tight affair which I see Bet Victor are offering 11/10 and it’s a good price for Under 2.5 Goals, which is our best bet of the afternoon.
RODA JC vs. RKC WAALWIJK (13:30 GMT)
Jon Dahl Tomasson’s Roda and their Eredivisie status are virtually dead in the water after failing to two away defeats to Heracles and PSV Eindhoven in the last two rounds of games.
Both of these sides are in trouble and in dire need of points. Waalwijk are just two points (27) ahead of Roda (25), with both teams having displayed poor form in recent weeks. Tomasson has lead his side to just one win in the last nine matches, while Erwin Koeman’s RKC have taken a just a single point from a possible fifteen since thrashing FCUtrecht 5-2 in early February.
Both, Roda and RKC will see this is an opportunity to breathe some life into their relegation battle but unfortunately for Roda, I cannot see them scoring as many times as RKC can. Roda have scored just four goals in the last six games as RKC have notched ten. We will look to RKC at 17/5 offered by Bet Victor as our best bet for value.
ADO DEN HAAG vs. PEC ZWOLLE (15:30 GMT)
Ron Jans and his PEC Zwolle will be buoyant after clinching their first KNVB Beker Final in 37 years on Wednesday night but travel to ADO Den Haag knowing that Henk Fraser has lead the home side to an undefeated six game streak since taking over.
That’s right, when ADO looked to doomed to relegation, Fraser has managed them to three wins and three draws in the last six outings and Zwolle are slightly depleted heading into this one with defensive duo Bram van Polen and Joost Broerse are both suspended.
ADO have struggled to keep clean sheets and I think the best bet looks like a ADO win with Both Teams to Score as Fraser men has not kept a clean sheet at home since November. Bet Victor offer 12/5 for this market and that is true value in what I see a great win for ADO.
