Goals Over/Under – Over 2.5
Both sides here score plenty of goals and do it both at home and away. If we take out their bad runs at the earlier stages of the season, these are two very capable teams in good form and we expect to see goals from both sides. Just to mention, their previous two H2Hs ended at 2:2 and 5:3. Both teams have seen BTTS win in over 50% of their matches this season and overall, it is expected when two teams in good form meet.
To Score in Half – Mechelen 1st Half (Yes)
There is an ongoing trend in Mechelen's matches that includes the team scoring at least once before half time. This has happened in most of the team's matches from this season in all tournaments (of course, only in those that they scored at all) and it is to be expected again given that Oostende's matches mostly end in over 2.5 goals. It is fair to mention that Oostende's goals typically fall after the break, so if you don't like betting on first halves, consider betting on Oostende to score after the break but at lower odds.
Total Corners – Over 9
Every time we bet on matches from the Jupiter League, we take a look at the corner stats because this is a league where teams take tons of corners. Oostende and Mechelen are no different. Here are their stats from the past 5 matches: Oostende have taken an average of 5.20 corners per match while Mechelen have taken an average of 6.20 corners per match. And here are the all-season stats: Oostende – 5.83 corners on average and Mechelen – 6.25. We expect to see at least 10 without any trouble given the offensive form of both sides.
