We are back to post-weekend action with MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, with just a solitary of picks for this evening.
Portugal Premiera Liga
Benfica Over 1.5 goals v Pacos Ferreira @ 1.61 (Bet365) – 3 points
Benfica come into this game with some great form behind them scoring at least 2 goals in their last 5 straight games in all competitions. Their scores have been 2-0, 4-0, 4-0, 3-0 and 3-0 in that time without even conceding a goal.
Benfica have been led in the scoring department by Talisca (7 goals), Salvio (7 goals), Lima (6 goals), Gaitan (4 goals) and Jonas (4 goals). They are the top scorers in terms of highest goals per game this campaign averaging 2.41 goals per game. What will encourage them is the poor defensive form of Pacos today as they have been leaking for fun. In the 4 games, they have conceded 10 goals and lost 3 and drew 1 during that period of time.
In the last 3 meetings between the 2 sides, Benfica managed to net 2 goals in all of those 3 games and won all 3 as well; so they will be aiming to replicate that performance while also keeping up pressure against Porto who lost yesterday, and could increase their lead to 9 points should they secure the 3 points tonight.
Im backing the League Leaders to continue their scoring form heading into this game tonight, and this a decent price for them to score 2 goals.
