Jigawa Golden Stars vs Heartland Owerri Prediction

On a plain outlook into the league table, Jigawa Golden Stars will not be likely favorites in the clash as they are in the relegation zone of the NPL this season.

However, their home record this season says otherwise. With their home ground advantage, the host can take all three points from Heartland, and here is the reason.

First, Jigawa has won 8 of their 24 appearances in the league so far. They registered all these wins as the host. Out of their 14 losses in the campaign, only 2 losses were at home.

Heartland is not in a dominating position in their away fixtures to counter that. With just 2 wins in their 12 away games, the odds are against the visitors in the clash.

The visitor will come on the back of a 2-0 win at home against Lobi Stars in their previous match. In sharp contrast, Golden Star faced a 2-0 defeat on the road to Kano in their last clash.

As such, a home win in full time with 1.75 odds will be the best bet in the match. All their meetings have ended with a clean sheet win for the winner. Hence, the tip for the home team to score first at 1.50 odds will also be a good bet for the punters.
