The Jupiler Pro League predictions

Last week I had 4 out of 6 correct. Not bad but it can be better. This evening there are again 6 games. Let's see if we can get them all correct.

AA Gent - KV Kortrijk: 1 (odds: 1,45)
Well normally Gent may not have any problems with defeating Kortrijk but the defense of Gent is the area were the problems are but is possible that these problems will switch to the offense with the injury of their topscorer Olufade. No selection problems for Kortrijk.
Last year Gent won 4-0 at home but that was a cup game. The odds for a Gent win are at the moment around 1,45. Good enough, I would say.

Dender - Lokeren: 2 (odds: 2,30)
When looking at the classification of both team, this should be a no-brainer. Lokeren has besides the best defense of the league also the topscorer. Maazou should be able to score against the second worst defense of the league. Last season Lokeren won with 0-1 and I see them stealing the 3 points at Dender. Also the odds for a win of Lokeren are gigantic, namely 2.30.

Genk - Charlerloi: OVER (odds: 1,65)
Genk always has problems against team from the french part of Belgium. Therefor I don't like the odds for a Genk win, they are only 1,48. Therefor I will play an over 2.5 goals bets, the odds for this bet are a little bit better with 1,65.

Tubize - Mons: OVER (Odds: 1,90)
All sign point into the direction of a victory for Tubize. Mons won last week 5-2 at home against Dender, while Tubize lost 5-1 at Anderlecht. A 1X bet would give odds of 1,48 while an over bet has a value of 1,90. Maybe this over bet is a safer bet. With Perbet in form at Tubize side and Jarju on the side of Mons a lot of goals can be expected.

Westerlo - Cercle Brugge: X2 (odds: 1,72)
A man this one is a though to one to call. Both teams are in shape. At Cercle De Sutter finally is starting to score goals, while Westerlo has with Ruiz the number 6 of the topscorer list. Westerlo still has to loose this season at home, while Cercle is struggling away from home with only 1 victory. For some reason I don't see Cercle loosing this game. So to be safe I going for a x2 bet, with odds of 1,72.

Zulte Waregem - Mouscron: 1 (Odds: 2,05)
Mouscron can't be actually called an away team and never they did steal the 3 points at Zulte. And I don't expect it to change this season. Also zulte will be motivated to win for the first time in the Jupiler Pro League 3 games in a row.

this gives a combined odd of 36,87.

Good luck,
