It’s another action packed weekend in Japan’s J League. Two sides having very different seasons meet on Saturday when 6th place Kashima Antlers host bottom of the table Yokohama. Kashima are still very much in the hunt for a third place finish and with it a place in next season AFC Champions League. Yokohama are marooned at the bottom of the league nine points away from safety. To stand any glimmer of staying up they need to start winning matches and will be hoping that starts this weekend.

As you would imagine, Kashima are the heavy favourites to win this match but at odds of 3/10 there is no value in picking them to win. Instead we are interested in Kashima winning when having a handicap applied to them of -1. Yokohama have only managed seven away goals all season so you can be reasonably confident that the bottom side won’t be bagging a tonne of goals. Kashima are the second highest scorers in the league when it comes to scoring at home and we think that they can get the job done here and overcome the handicap at odds of 17/20.
Both teams to score
This bet relies solely on our thinking that Yokohama might find it difficult to score away from home considering that they have only scored seven away all season and amassed only five points when on their travels. In a game where Kashima will dominate the ball we will take a chance that both teams fail to find the back of the net.
Over 2.5 goals
Despite us backing both teams not to score we think this should be a game where we see a lot of goals. Yokohama have conceded a league high 40 goals when on their travels so Kashima will be licking their lips here. Both teams have seen over 2.5 goals happen in four of their last five respective matches and we are backing that to continue here.
