Emmen vs Vitesse Best Bets and Predictions

Vitesse has improved in the last month losing only once while getting out of the relegation-threatened territory for the time being.

Over 2.5 Goals

These teams are fighting to stave off relegation, and for that purpose, it was logical for them to try and find some tactical advantages to give them a reasonable chance of getting some all-important points. Vitesse did have the last two games with some goals scored. They had the most successful period of the season regarding goalscoring which is something they have struggled for most of the year. In those games, they scored five goals in total. However, three matches that were played before those two were low-scoring affairs. For the season, Vitesse is the best ‘over' team in the league with a total of 13 matches with more than two goals scored. At the same time, Emmen had nine of those games, but four out of their past five matches were under 2.5 goals. Looking at their h2h, four from the last five games they played covered ‘over' of goals.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Again, we are looking at the stats when they play against each other. Five straight games had BTTS covered so it's relatively easy to predict it will happen again. In their last five matches overall, Emmen had only one game with both teams scoring while Vitesse had three. The bookmakers put some decent odds on having both teams score which was expected to begin with hoping at the same time that Emmen won't be putting in any crucial defensive displays as they did against PSV.

This is how the bookmakers are predicting an upcoming matchup will be resolved:

Emmen odds: 8/5 (2.60) – 38.5%

Draw odds: 12/5 (3.40) – 29.4%

Vitesse odds: 7/4 (2.75) – 36.4%

The bookmakers are predicting an evenly matched game which is something that was expected, so it's hard to look at one team as the favorite. There are other possible options available for bettors' consideration: Minute Market is always a risky proposition, but with Vitesse running into a good form, going with a goal in the period 1-15 minutes gives you odds of 11/5 (3.20) – 31.3%. If you are willing to take on an even bigger risk, looking for a Correct Score after the First Half at 1-1 gives you odds of 13/2 (7.50) – 13.3%.

Preview, Team News, and Probable Lineups

Emmen

After they recently beat PSV, the ambitions for the club to stay in the Eredivisie became more realistic, even though it was only one game. They managed to subdue PSV's better-attacking options and beat them by a single goal as the difference maker. But, four days later they lost once again, so the struggle is real, however, hope is still in existence for Emmen. The home team has Rui Mendes, Jeff Hardeveld, and Maikel Kieftenbeld out through injury, while Metehan Guclu and Mart Lieder have question marks on their availability status.

Probable lineup: van der Hart, Heylen, Veldmate, Veendorp, Bouchouari, Bernadou, El Messaoudi, Dirksen, ter Haar, Diemers, Zivkovic.

Vitesse

The Arnhem team got some breathing space in front of the relegation-threatened teams by going undefeated in four out of their last five matches, all in January. They finally won last week against Heerenveen which was only their fourth victory of the season. Vitesse only has Sondre Tronstad out with a hamstring injury.

Probable lineup: Scherpen, Arcus, Flamingo, Oroz, Wittek, Kozlowski, Meulensteen, Manhoef, Bero, Vidovic, Bialek.
