Humble Lions vs Tivoli Gardens Football tips and predictions

Tivoli Gardens have taken just one point from their last three Jamaica. National Premier League matches, following last weekend’s 3-1 defeat away to their opponent. Tivoli Gardens are still seventh overall in the table, but the distance between them and the Continental qualification positions is slowly getting bigger. Saturday’s match at home to reigning champions Humble Lions should prove no easy feat either – Tivoli Gardens haven’t won against any Jamaica. National Premier League leader since September 2008 and, notably, are without a win against any side currently within the top eight so far this season.

Humble Lions have turned around their “unconvincing” run in style over the past 7 days. Humble Lions dominated and humiliated their opponent with a 8-0 win at home last weekend, which also saw their striker net his first hat-trick of 2017, to become the Jamaica. National Premier League’s joint top scorer (19 goals) in the process, before easing their way through to the semi-finals of the national cup at home to opponent during the week (3-0 win).

Humble Lions are clear favourites here at 4/9 with bet365, but we feel that backing “both teams to score” at 21/20 has some decent potential for the following reasons:

Most people know about Humble Lions and their striker, and for good reason too. He is a world class striker and currently in top form, with seven goals from his last four competitive outings. He’s also scored three goals in Humble Lions’s last four on the road so you’d fancy him to continue this run as an anytime goalscorer at 4/7 with bet365. However, Tivoli Gardens are not without a weapon of their own in French striker.Not to mention that he scored against the visitors earlier this season when Tivoli Gardens took a point away from Humble Lions (1-1 draw).

Notably, Humble Lions’s recent domination has in fact come from matches at home. Humble Lions have failed to keep a clean sheet in three of their last four Jamaica. National Premier League away matches, including against some much weaker teams than Tivoli Gardens, and the added strain following their mid-week national cup match, where the league leaders fielded a full strength squad, should add even more value to Tivoli Gardens getting one against them.

Regarding a correct score bet, though Tivoli Gardens are unbeaten at home this season (W5 D5), Humble Lions hold the best away record in the Jamaica. National Premier League (W8 D2 L1). Tivoli Gardens’s poor track record against much stronger sides, combined with Humble Lions’s return to goal-scoring form, means we feel the Humble Lionsns could sneak another win here. As such, we feel there’s decent value to be had backing a 2-1 Humble Lions win at 15/2 with bet365.
