Soccer championships in the world are stopping one by one. Fewer and fewer countries and continents are still willing to hold competitions. COVID-19 is poisoning humanity, even without directly infecting people. All the more precious are the few pockets of resistance that keep soccer alive in these difficult times.
The Nigerian championship has not yet been paused. This means that all sports betting fans should pay attention to the upcoming games of the 25th round of the Nigerian Premier League. I have tried to collect the most interesting statistical trends that can help make interesting bets on the upcoming matches.
1. "Plateau" - "Kwara"
Game between the sole leader of the championship "Plateau" and one of the outsiders of the championship club "Kwara". The game will take place on the field of the favourite, which is now in excellent playing conditions. On account of the team five wins in the last five home matches. Therefore, bookmakers leave no chance for the guests, giving on P2 to 15.00 at 1.17 on the success of the "Plateau". However, statistics suggest that there is a margin for betting on the underdog here.
If you look closely at Plato's recent home games, you'll notice that the leaders of the Nigerian Premier League have only won by at least two goals in the last eight rounds of the championship. The guests, the club Kwara have lost only once in the last 19 games to their rivals by a margin of two goals or more.
2. "Adamawa United vs Enyimba
A very interesting match in terms of betting opportunities. This is a meeting between the last club of the Nigerian Premier League and the middle of the championship, in which the factor of their field for the underdog leads to quite high odds on the success of the favourite.
"Vicky" - "Kano Pillars"
The game in Bauchi at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium is a match between the 17th and 4th clubs in the standings. And the guests are the underdogs, which is very questionable from a statistical point of view.
Club Wicca is rightfully at the bottom of the standings in the championship of Nigeria. The hosts suffered 5 defeats in 7 previous meetings, including the last home game. The visitors, on the other hand, scored 7 points in the last three rounds of the Premier League, suffering only 3 defeats in their last 20 matches in the championship. The Cano Pillars have lost to the Vikes only once in their previous 4 meetings in face-to-face action. All indications are that Cano Pillars players can score points in the upcoming game as well.
4. "Dakada" - "Ennugu".
The game between neighbours in the standings, the 5th and 6th teams in the Nigerian championship, "Dakada" and "Enugu" may well be a match to the first goal. In general, one of the main trends in the Nigerian championship is the draw matches. Many teams play most games of the season through the TM 2.5, and bookmaker odds on the total more, as a rule, are very high.
