FC Utrecht

vs

Ajax

FC Utrecht look vulnerable and our betting prediction is to side with Ajax at 2.06 on the Asian Handicap market. We need our selection to overcome a -1.5 goal margin.

Reasons for our FC Utrecht vs Ajax prediction:

  • FC Utrecht have failed to win any of their last 4 matches
  • Ajax have not lost any of their last 10 away matches
  • Ajax have kept 15 clean sheets in their past 18 matches this season
  • Ajax have won 8 of their past 10 away matches
  • Ajax have scored 2 or more goals in 7 of their past 10 away matches

Rather than back Ajax on the 1x2 market, our Eredivisie tip is to back them off a -1.5 goal handicap. We’re taking the 2.06 that they win by two goals or more.

Those expecting a one-sided affair can back Ajax on the Asian Handicap -2.5 and you would need them to win by three goals or more.
