Pick of the day #39: FK Ural – Volgar-Astrakhan
At work, so there is no time to motivate today’s pick today, but Div 1 in Russia is restarting after the winterbreak and Super Ural Ekaterinburg play today at 14:00 CET. They host Volgar-Gazprom Astrakhan, who sit next to bottom in the league with 18 points in 20 games.
Ural have done well in the friendlies during the winter break and finished with an impressive 3-1 win to top rivals Tom Tomsk.
A straight home win is payed around 1.35, but Bwin pays 1.70 for Ural over 1.5 goals, which is very high in my opinion.
I made quite a lot of money on Ural in 2012, but observe that I lost plenty on exactly over 1.5 goals at Bwin once earlier…
RESULT: My over 1.5 Ural bets just go wrong. Today Ural did not play very well, but still got 1-0 early (Skrylnikov, min 15). Unfortunately, they couldn’t score more in first half and in the 42th minute they got Chukhley sent off. After that it wasn’t very likely for us to see another Ural goal, and the game ended 1-0. Gutted!
