Boca Juniors have struggled out of the gate in the start of the Argentine season but are still favoured to take the win at home Wednesday over Olimpo Bahia Blanca.Bet on the Argentina Primera now and take advantage of a great deal from William Hill, where you can land a $100 betting bonus.
Starting off the 2014 tournament with a 1-3-1 (W-L-T) record is not the way Boca Juniors manager Carlos Bianchi had envisoined coming into the campaign. The club is currently in third last after matchday five and will need a boost in order not to fall too far behind from the start.
Luckily, former Argentine international Juan Roman Riquleme makes his much-anticipated return to the starting eleven Wednesday after a couple of substitute appearances. He should provide an injection into the Boca offense as well as providing a much-needed morale boost.
The home side is favoured with odds of 1.73 available over at William Hill, with the double result takng that to 2.75. After dropping a 3-2 result in its opening home match against Belgrano, Boca rebounded in front of its fans with a 1-0 win over Estudiantes two weeks ago.
The hosts will have to make do without the services of both Fernando Gago and Agustin Orion who are on national team duty. Nevertheless, I still anticipate a home win this evening. The Boca -1 with a tie result in the handicap sector offers the best value, with 3.20 available for that pick.
The same odds can be had for the 1x2 draw pick right now at 3.20.
The Olimpo victory is being offered right now at a hefty 5.00. The club is 2-2-1 so far on the campaign but has yet to score from its two road games, which has produced only one solitary goal.
Instead of taking the under 2.5 total goals, which is only at 1.50, look instead to the teams to score sector where Boca is available for 2.37. With Olimpo's flat offensive production on the road coupled with Riquelme's return this could be the value selection of the evening.
