Heerenveen vs AZ Alkmaar Top Betting Picks

After a disappointing draw against Vitesse at home, things are becoming serious for AZ Alkmaar who has another tough game ahead against one of the best defensive teams in the Eredivisie.

Under 2.5 Goals

Heerenveen doesn't have the talent at the forward position throughout their squad which can be said about Alkmaar, however, they have made it tough for their opponents to score goals which are proving to be the case in each passing round. Even though four of the past five h2h matches have ended with an ‘over', there is a good chance that we will see a much different outcome this time around.

Draw

If they don't know how to score goals, the hosts can make it tough for their opponents to get win. That means they can play for a certain score, and they wouldn't have a problem if they make it out as a goalless draw.

This is how the bookmakers see this matchup coming to fruition:

Heerenveen odds: 9/4 (3.25) – 30.8%

Draw odds: 69/20 (3.45) – 22.5%

AZ Alkmaar odds: 109/50 (2.18) – 47.8%

Even though Alkmaar is not played especially well in the last few rounds, with few exceptions, they are still considered a favorite, but if you don't like these odds, there are other opportunities for you to consider: Sydney van Hooijdonk is the best scorer for Heerenveen, and if he gets on the scoresheet you can get odds at 61/20 (3.05) – 24.7%. If you pick a No Goal Draw, you can get odds of 13/1 (13.00) – 7.1%.

Predicted Lineups, Team News, and Preview

Heerenveen

It is hard for teams like Heerenveen to battle against the biggest clubs in the Netherlands who have vast resources and are capable of earning huge amounts of money just by selling their top players. Heerenveen is a different kind of institution, they needed to find their way in managing expectations and doing their best to provide some spark for their fan base. They are doing a good job, even though the way they play football isn't attractive to a lot of people. They are holding on to the eighth position, but need to take a step further if they want to secure European football for next season. Sydney van Hooijdonk can't be the only one that is dependent on scoring goals. Sven van Beek is the only injury worry for coach Kees van Wonderen.

Predicted lineup: Noppert, van Ewijk, van Beek, Bochniewicz, Kohlert, Haye, Al Hajj, Tahiri, Olsson, van Hooijdonk, Sarr.

AZ Alkmaar

They were at the top of the league for an extended period of the first part of the season before the break, but since then they just can't find their game. They did beat PSV away in their last game before the season was stopped, but last weekend came back to action by losing two valuable points in a home draw against Vitesse, a team they should have beaten. Their goalscoring is where it needs to be, they are getting it almost every game which hasn't changed since the start of the season, but what has changed is their propensity to allow more goals than they score. They have only won twice in their last six matches, and as a result, they have dropped to the fifth spot. They are still very much in the race to win the title, but things need to improve quickly. Sem Westerveld and Bruno Martins Indi are doubtful to play.

Predicted lineup: Verhulst, de Wit, Beukema, Chartzidiakos, Sugawara, Clasie, Mihailovic, Reijnders, Karlsson, Pavlidis, Odgaard.

Player to Watch: Jens Odgaard

The Danish striker is still the best scorer for AZ Alkmaar with six goals, but it has been a while since the last time he scored a goal. Two and a half months to be exact. As the efficiency of the whole team dropped slightly in the last month before the season took a break, Odgaard was also the one who fell into a trap of misfiring on his opportunities. He is still the best that Alkmaar can offer at the forward position and needs to start proving that once again.
