Ajax to win by 3+ goals

It might sound like a bold call to back a team to win by three or more goals but this Ajax side are so vastly superior to what they’re facing in Den Bosch that the idea of them winning by three clear goals isn’t hard to picture at all. Den Bosch are winless in five games and have lost each of their past four whilst shipping 12 goals in that time. Ajax meanwhile have won four of five games whilst hitting 13 goals in total. Consider the fact that these stats then need to be cranked through for the differing levels the sides play at and a big Ajax win is highly plausible.

Over 3.5 goals

Next up we are backing there to be over 3.5 total goals in this game. Den Bosch have broken the 3.5 mark in two of their last four home games. Ajax meanwhile have broken the 3.5 marker in four of their last five matches. On top of that, the last time Ajax visited Den Bosch's home ground we saw a five goals. With that form in mind alongside the odds on offer, this has decent value.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Den Bosch odds: 20/1 (21.00) – 5%

Draw odds: 8/1 (9.00) – 11%

Ajax odds: 1/13 (1.08) – 93%

The odds on the match result markets tell you everything you need to know. Den Bosch need more than just Lady Luck smiling on them to come through this game whilst Ajax will need to have a disaster not to progress. From a bettors perspective, that makes things slightly more difficult as markets like HT/FT, handicap and paired match result and BTTS wagers have to be built to find stronger odds. Of course, if you want to leave the result betting alone things like the total goals market can be used; bookies are expecting goals in this game but at least you have a sliding scale to work with to balance your risk and reward.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Den Bosch vs Ajax

Den Bosch

If ever there was a free hit for a team then this is it. Literally nobody expects Den Bosch to get a result against a side like Ajax. That will give the hosts a little spring in their step though owing to a lack of pressure. Expect the strongest possible XI.

Predicted lineup – van der Steen (GK), Mulders, de Groot, van den Bogert, van Grunsven, der Heijden, Ahannach, Lejten, Hammouti, Patolidis, Konings

Ajax

Ajax will win this game; we’re pretty damn site of that. They’ll also expect to win the game regardless of the team the name and, as such, we are expecting to see a fair few alterations to the XI named. That means the likes of Brian Brobbey will at best be on the bench.

Predicted lineup – Gorter (GK), Bassey, Timber, Aertssen, Fitz Jim, Klassen, Kudus, Regeer, Banel, Berghuis, Lucca

Starting Lineups

*Starting lineups are usually announced one hour prior to kick off.

Player to watch

Our player to watch in this game is Ajax’s 20-year-old Dutch international midfielder Kenneth Taylor. Taylor, who was in Qatar for the World Cup, has spent a lot of time on the sidelines this season due to injury but he’s a very good footballer, which he’s shown in the games he has played. In 13 league appearances this year, he has scored five goals and set up another three.
