Vitesse to win but only with the draw no bet option

Both teams have not enjoyed the best form recently; Heracles have won just two of their last eight games, while Vitesse have won two of their last nine games. However, Vitesse have been much better than Heracles this season; they’ve been one of the best road teams in the Eredivisie, with seven wins, two draws and three losses from 12 road games. Furthermore, Vitesse tend to play well against Heracles; they’ve won all of their last four meetings, and are unbeaten in their last five encounters with Heracles. Considering both teams have not won too many games recently, we’re playing it safe; well go with Vitesse to win, draw no bet.

Someone will keep a clean sheet

Clashes between these teams have mostly been one-sided in terms of scoring goals; both teams scored in just one of the last four meetings between Heracles and Vitesse. It’s also been the same case in both teams’ recent games; at least one team failed to score in five of Vitesse’s last eight games. Similarly, Heracles kept three clean sheets in their last six games in all competitions; at least one team blanked in four of those six games. With this in mind, we shouldn’t expect goals at both ends.

We won’t see loads of goals

Games between Heracles and Vitesse at this stadium tend to be on the low-scoring side; the last three, and seven of the last eight times Vitesse came visiting, they scored fewer than three goals. In the same vein, both teams have had their fair share of low-scoring games recently; three of Vitesse’s last four games went below the 2.5 goal line. Considering six of Heracles’ last nine games also went under 2.5; our final pick for this match is under 2.5 total goals.
