Remember, you don’t have to roll all of your winnings on every bet. If you ever get to a point where you’re uncomfortable staking a large amount on a bet then consider getting some banked. This challenge is all about fun so let’s keep it that way.
As always I’ve written up my research behind Bet 2 of the Bad Man Builder below:
Start vs Kristiansund
We’re back to Norway again as we’re on the hunt for a single goal from visitors Kristiandsund who are currently sniffing around the top 3 battle and need to bounce back after a 5-3 loss to Viking last week.
- Kristuansund have scored 36 goals so far this season, only Bodo and Molde can better that
- They’ve scored 9 in their last 3 matches
- They met start around 5 weeks ago and ran out 3-2 winners
- Kristiansund have failed to score just once in their last 15 matches
- The man to watch is definitely Amahl Pellegrino
- Pellegrino has notched 17 times in 16 games this season
- He’s on a bonkers run of scoring 8 goals in his last 5 games
- He’s scored a brace in each of his last 3 games
- He also found the net the last time these two met
- Only Aalesund and Stromsgodest can boast a worse defensive record than Start
- They shipped 34 goals in 17 matches, so exactly 2 per game on average
- They’ve had 2 or more put past them 8 times this season, including 6 against Bodo, 5 against Molde and 5 against Odd
Wolfsburg vs Leverkusen
The Bundesliga is back and I couldn’t be happier. The German top flight was incredible for goals last season and I expect no change this time around.
- Wolfsburg come in to this having started their European campaign with a 4-0 away win over Kukesi
- They’ve been thumping in the goals in pre-season, albeit against poorer sides
- 8 of their final 10 Bundesliga matches saw over 2.5 goals and only 1 had under 1.5
- Kevin Mbabu is missing for this one, he’ll be a big loss defensively especially against a Leverkusen side with quality in wide areas
- Wout Weghorst is someone I’ve spoken about recently, the giant Dutchman bagged a brace in midweek
- Weghorst netted 16 times last season at an average of once every 2 matches
- He hit 17 the season proper to that and hasn’t dropped below 14 league goals since 2014
- These two averaged 2.76 and 3.09 goals per game respectively last season
- This fixture hasn’t produced a game with under 1.5 goals since 2010, that’s a run of 23 head to head fixtures
- That one game in 2010 was the first head to head under 1.5 goals since 1999
- Leverkusen returned to action last week in the DFB Pokal with a 7-0 drubbing
- They started close to full strength so the players will be a getting back sharp
- Lucas Alario and Nadiem Amiri we’re both on target
- I also expect French winger Moussa Diaby to come in to the fold here
- One of him or Amiri will play down the left, running at Wolfsburg’s replacement right back
