Heerenveen vs Heracles Prediction
Consecutive draws in Heerenveen’s schedule suggest a shaky defense, but we cannot expect a high-scoring affair when they host another weaker side in the mix. The host is eleven points ahead of the traveling side on the table as it stands.
The host has scored 21 goals in their 12 league appearances so far this season. In the meantime, Heracles have lost four of their recent five matches in the campaign. Besides, the visitor has averaged just one goal per match this term in their schedule.
With both teams accounting for a winless streak in their respective form in the campaign, expect a low-scoring affair. So, the tip for under 3.5 goals will probably be the best bet from the goals department for the punters to yield decent returns.
The home win is the ideal choice regarding the host’s ground advantage and an unbeaten streak in the recent four fixtures, drawing all games. To be safer, the draw no bet over Heerenveen will serve the purpose for the punters in the encounter.
