Rivers United and Kano Pillars face off on Sunday 3rd July 2022. The NPFL teams last played against each other in March this year, a match that Rivers Utd won 1-0 away from the home. The question is whether Rivers will win the game or slack after bagging an early crowning? More details in this preview.

Rivers United vs Kano Pillars Free Match Betting Predictions

Rivers United at top of the table with 71 points while Kano Pillars are 13th with 45 points. The visitors must win all their remaining games to be assured of safety but do they have a chance against the high flying Rivers United? Our best three betting predictions for the NPFL game are:

Rivers United to win

The hosts have won the League with three games to go. However, we don’t think they will relent just yet, especially after going unbeaten at home so far. Rivers United have won 16 and drawn 1 of the 17 home games they have played so far, so ending the season with an impressive run should be top of the agenda. On the other hand, Nasarawa has struggled this season and with just two wins and two draws in 17 away games, it will be hard getting victory on Sunday.

No chance of goals on both ends

There is low chance that goals will be scored on both ends of the field. Rivers have been very defensive on home soil, leaking only 5 goals in 17 matches. You can’t compare such a defensive record to Nasarawa’s away performance at the back. The visitors conceded 26 goals and scored only 9 in 17 trips.

Under 2.5 goals at full-time

Lastly, this will likely be a low scoring duel. While Rivers are likely to score more than a goal on matchday, records show that only 10 of 12 previous meetings had more than 2 goals. Rivers have never scored more than two goals against Nasarawa.
