Hebei vs Guangzhou City: Top Free Betting Tips
Both Hebei and Guangzhou City have almost nothing to fight for at this point. The teams are at the bottom of the table but will not get relegated but they also have little to no chances to reach the AFC Champions League – the chances exist mathematically but in reality, it is impossible.
Both Teams To Score – Yes
We base our bet on several simple facts. Statistically, both teams have been quite disappointing this season and we wouldn't pick this option if they were playing against either of the stronger sides in the Championship Group. But since both sides are equally as bad, we expect to see a lot of goals in this match. Neither side has much to fight for and this match is just another chance for them to pick up the pace and show their capabilities against a weaker opponent. Historically, the matches between these teams were incredible – there always were a ton of goals. But they haven't played in 2 years, so we cannot be sure that it will be the same. But we believe that this market is worth a shot.
Double Chance – Tie or Guangzhou City
The main problem for Hebei and Guangzhou City this season have been the draws. The teams both have the highest number of draws this season in the Championship Group – 6 per team. Had they won more of their matches, they would have been much closer to the top and woud have had a purpose to play for. Guangzhou won their last match, which was a complete surprise, but their performances since the restart have not been convincing at all. The same goes for Hebei, who had problems in all three games and did not show much. We think that Guangzhou might be the better team currently, so we are picking the double chance option for them.
Team Total Goals – Hebei Under 1.5
No team has scored less goals at home this season than Hebei. Their goal difference at home is incredibly disappointing, so we do not expect to see a different performance in this game despite the weaker opponent. Hebei have scored a total of 8 goals in 8 home games. On the other side, Guangzhou have the best away record when it comes to goals – they have conceded 8 goals in 8 away games. In most matches, they did not concede even one goal. We expect Hebei to score once which is a tradition against Guangzhou but no more.
