Conclusion & Betting analysis

The previous meeting ended 3-3 and I could see a few more goals again tonight. Chambly are in a desperate situation where only a win is really good enough right now in a match like this one. They can’t exactly settle for a draw. The good news is that Nancy should come here to play. They have no pressure on their shoulders and will probably have a go, not exactly digging in and parking the bus or anything. I was tempted by Chambly DNB but Nancy could easily pick them off on the break with the fast players they have so I’m thinking over 2.25 goals is the best bet. I would personally like to see Chambly win tonight and I will lean towards them taking something like a 2-1 victory. But I just fear if things start to go badly then they will open up too much and Nancy take advantage.

Prediction: 2-1

Recommended bet: Over 2.25 goals @1.95
