These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.
AZ to lead at HT
AZ Alkmaar have been the most improved team in the Eredivisie; they have more wins in their last six games (6) than they did in their first 13 league games (5) combined. As a matter of fact, AZ Alkmaar have won 10 consecutive games, and are unbeaten in their last 13 games in all competitions. It’s worth mentioning that AZ Alkmaar tend to come out all guns blazing; and because of that, they usually draw first blood. Pascal Jansen’s men bagged the first goal in seven of their last eight matches. They’ve also done the same thing when they play against Cambuur; as AZ Alkmaar have scored first in five of their last six encounters with Cambuur. Considering AZ have led at half-time in six of the last seven clashes between these teams, we should expect the same outcome here.
Both sides will net
Cambuur have been one of the most consistent teams when it comes to scoring goals; they’ve found the back of the net in all of their last 12 matches. Conversely, Cambuur have not had too much trouble conceding goals; as they’ve done so in all of their last nine games. Just like Cambuur, AZ Alkmaar have no difficulty finding the net, they’ve scored in all of their last 10 games. Again, like Cambuur, they’ve conceded their fair share of goals; AZ Alkmaar have conceded in five of their last seven games. It’s important to note that both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings between these two; considering both teams have also scored in all of Cambuur’s last nine, and five of AZ Alkmaar’s last seven games, both teams should score today.
Backing goals galore
Our final pick for this game will be on the over/under goals market. We’ve mentioned how consistently these teams score; with Cambuur scoring in their last 12 games, and AZ Alkmaar scoring in their last 10 games. We should also point out that their games have mostly been high scoring. Five of AZ Alkmaar’s last seven, and seven of Cambuur’s last nine games have gone over 2.5. In the same vein, recent meetings between these teams have produced a lot of goals; as three of their last four encounters went over 3.5. We nearly opted for an over 2.5 tip but that last stat – around the h2h makes us think there is better value at 3.5.
The best odds for AZ vs Cambuur
AZ vs Cambuur: Team Overview
AZ Alkmaar have been on fire over the past three months; they have won 10 games in a row, and have no losses in their last 13 games across all competitions. Pascal Jansen will look to guide his team to their 11th consecutive win; he’ll call on Jesper Karlsson to lead the lads to victory.
Cambuur picked up some speed in October last year, winning five consecutive games; things have not gone too well since then, as they’ve registered just one win in their last six games. Cambuur will hope to right their wrongs as they visit AZ Alkmaar; it’ll be interesting to see if Jamie Jacobs will help his team to an upset win.
