Pick of the day #44: Admira Wacker – SV Ried
Here is an early pick for Saturday. Admira Wacker host SV Ried in the Austrian Bundesliga. Both teams are usually involved in games with many goals and I think I have found a good bet here. Over 2.5 goals is currently priced at 1.79 at Pinnacle.

The statistics certainly indicate that many goals will be scored in this game. Moreover, Admira Wacker have their first choice goalkeeper out today and SV Reid have two regular defenders out. I was first planning a max bet here (10/10 units), but stick to 7 units. There are two reasons for this choice. First, my recent stats at over bets are not very good. Second, there will be cold in Mödling tomorrow. The forecast says -3 degrees Celsius and a small risk of snow.
