The sports world is pretty much shutdown over the Covid-19 virus but there are still some soccer leagues continuing to go ahead. We bring you two picks today, one from the Russian Premier League and the other from Super Lig in Turkey.
Fc Tambov vs Krylya Sovetov Samara
Monday, 16 March 2020 – 11.30 AM EST
Opening Line: Tambov -123 (1.81) at Bookmaker
The final Russian Premier League game of the weekend is a relegation battle between Tambov and Sovetov Samara. Both clubs are practically level in all aspects of the league this season, both have played twenty-one games, both have 6-4-11 records and both have a total of twenty-two points, and both have a goal difference of -4. What makes this matchup very competitive is the fact that Tambov’s home record is the 8th best in the league, whilst Sovetov Samara’s away record is the 10th best in the league. Tambov have bagged 13 points at home this season and Sovetov Samara have 13 points away from home this season. This Match screams a draw.
Prior to the winter break Sovetov Samara had lost four games in a row whilst Tambov secured seven points from a possible twelve. Since the return from the winter break Sovetov Samara have been the better team, earning themselves four points from a possible six. Tambov have one point from a possible six and haven’t managed to find the back of the net now in two games.
Sovetov Samara’s previous twelve games have gone under 2.5 goals on eleven occasion. It’s hard to envision this game going over 2.5 but unfortunately, we would have to give up a lot of juice on the under as the Odds board have the odds set at -200 (1.50). Possibly a soccer pick to add to a parlay. I cant look past this game being a draw, theirs to much for either team to lose by losing this game.
Best Bet: Draw (+193) at BetOnline

Antalyaspor vs Sivasspor
Monday, 16 March 2020 – 12.00 PM EST
Opening Line: Sivasspor -142 (1.70) at 5Dimes
Sivasspor are currently sitting 4th in the league table and only three points off the top of the table, they have never won the league and their best position was a 2nd place finish back in 2009. Antalyaspor are currently sitting in 12th place in the league table, as of right now they are probably overachieving a little bit, most expected them to finish up around 14th position come the end of the season. In saying all that there are only five points separating them from bottom of the table.
Antalyaspor have the worst home record in the league this season, only bagging themselves eleven points from a whopping total of thirty-six. Sivasspor come into this game after a hard earned draw against Galatasaray. Their opponents haven’t lost in the league in seven games, but only two of those seven were wins and both wins did come against teams below themselves in the league table so I wouldn’t read too much into seven games undefeated.
This game surprisingly enough has the potential to be an exciting affair with lots of goals, Sivasspor will want to win this game and potentially go level on top of the league, whilst Antalyaspor will want to continue their undefeated streak and push further up the table. Both teams have gone over 2.5 goals a lot lately, five of Antalyaspor last six games have gone over the total and seven of Sivasspor last seven away games have gone over. This is most likely the best bet for this game and we are getting decent odds at -133 (1.75) for over 2.5 goals. I feel this could be the game Antalyaspor finally lose and I love Sivasspor’s soccer odds at plus money at odds of +125 (2.25).
