Pick of the day #13: Academica – Benfica
No time to motivate my pick today, but there is a great probability that this cup game will end up with a lot of goals.
Benfica score goals for fun in Portugal. I pick the over 2.5 bet instead of a Benfica win since Academica have been something of a boogie team for Benfica the last couple of years. Moreover, they have scored in most of their games recently.
The teams have played each other twice this season, 2-2 in the league in September with Academica as home team, and 3-2 in the League Cup with Benfica as the home team. That game was played just a week ago.
I might follow up this bet live with over 1.5 for Benfica or something similar. Follow me on Twitter to find out.
