AZ vs NEC: Our top betting tips

AZ have started their campaign with three straight wins; will they make that four as they host NEC here? Find out with our AZ vs NEC match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

AZ to win with both teams scoring

AZ Alkmaar have been unstoppable this summer; they've won nine of their last 10 matches across all competitions, including their last six. Pascal Jansen's men have a perfect record in the Eredivisie this season, with three wins from three; they've fared better than NEC Nijmegen, who have a win, a draw and a loss in three matches. Also, we would like to point out that AZ Alkmaar tend to play well against NEC Nijmegen; as they've won four of the last six clashes between these teams. All things considered, we believe that AZ Alkmaar will win this match; considering NEC Nijmegen scored five goals in their last two games, both teams should score as well.

Going over 2.5 goals

We've mentioned that NEC Nijmegen registered five goals in their last two matches; because of the way they score, most of NEC's games have been on the high-scoring side. As a matter of fact, six of NEC Nijmegen's last eight games saw at least four goals scored. In like manner, AZ Alkmaar have had their fair share of high-scoring games; four of their last five games went above the 2.5 goal mark with three of those games going over 3.5. Furthermore, we would like to point out that the last four meetings between these teams saw 3.5 goals scored on average. With that in mind, our tip is for over 2.5 goals but if you’re feeling ballsy then going for 3.5 is possibly worth a nibble too!

Will AZ maintain their perfect start?

AZ Alkmaar have a couple of absentees heading into this match; Riechedly Bazoer is recovering from an illness, and hasn't played in the Eredivisie this season, while Jesper Karlsson is in the recovery room due to a muscle injury he sustained last season.

AZ Predicted lineup – Verhulst, Hatzidiakos, Beukema, Indi, Kerkez, Reijnders, Clasie, Evjen, Wit, Brederode, Pavlidis

Just like tonight's opponents, NEC Nijmegen have their fair share of players in the recovery room; as Magnus Mattsson and Mathias De Wolf are not available for selection. It'll be interesting to see how Rogier Meijer's men will fare against AZ Alkmaar without these players.

NEC Predicted lineup – Cillessen, Van Rooij, Marquez, Kramer, Karouani, Proper, Tavsan, Tannane, Schøne, Duelund, Brujin
