Guangzhou vs Shanghai Port: Top Free Betting Tips
Guangzhou and Shanghai Port have had identical seasons – both teams have the same number of points and now have fight for the same thing – their place in the AFC Champions League. Yes, both teams have a mathematical chance to win the title but Shandong Taishan are unlikely to give that up with such a massive difference this early in the Championship Group.
Total Goals – Under 2.5
Although both teams have been incredible this season and are near the top, they are among the teams with the lowest numbers of over 2.5 games in the league. Overall, both teams have been great offensively but even better in defense and have not conceded a lot of goals. While it is easy to expect that both teams will score and it is likely to happen, we expect this match to have under 3 goals due to both sides' strong defenses. Both teams will be motivated to show their best in this match as it will be crucial for the final standings this season and we expect to see more defense and less offense.
Double Chance – Guangzhou or Tie
Shanghai Port have been placed as a massive favorite for this game which is odd given that both teams are absolutely equal. Yes, Shanghai have been more dominant in their games this season but the results are generally the same. So, we prefer to pick the higher odds for the double chance for Guangzhou as we see the team as one of the best hosts in the league. In fact, they have not yet lost a match at home this season with their 6 wins and 2 draws. Shanghai Port really have to be at the top of their game to win this match and we do not expect it to happen.
Team Total Goals – Shanghai Port Under 1.5
As the big favorite for this game, there are some good high odds for Shanghai and the under 1.5 option seems like the perfect choice. We explained why we see this match as an obvious under 2.5 above and how we pick another option at great odds. Shanghai have really scored a lot of goals in away games this season but Guangzhou have conceded just 7 in 8 matches. And they also conceded more than 1 goal in just one game at home.
