Ming Chuan University vs. Taipower Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Taiwan Premier League, April 26
Ming Chuan University was expected to be one of the clubs battling against relegation this season after that format was brought in for the bottom-placed club, and the opening rounds of soccer in Taiwan have proved that to be the case.
It will probably mean that MCU needs to beat the other weaker sides and not be too bothered about getting anything from this kind of fixture. Taipower is two for two and looking good for it.
I detail my thoughts in this Ming Chuan University vs. Taipower betting preview.
Ming Chuan University vs. Taipower Odds
This is another game that BetOnline has called well before the referee even whistles for kickoff. Taipower is looking to finally take over at the top from Tatung this season and has started off very impressively. Ming Chuan University will probably not be able to do anything about that this weekend. So the odds do seem pretty fair to me.
Ming Chuan University vs. Taipower Match Preview
MCU picked up its first point of the season last weekend in its battle with fellow student team NTUS. The 4-2 defeat at the hands of Taiwan Steel on the opening day of the season should be seen as a relatively good result, so it has not been a bad start to the campaign.
If manager Tseng Tai-Lin can get his young team to stay focused in the early part of this game, then there might be the chance of keeping the score down. But the realistic expectations for the student side would be a comprehensive defeat.
With Taiwan Steel only managing to beat MCU by two goals, this is a chance for Taipower to exert its dominance over the league and send a message out by posting a big win. Beating Tatung Steel in the first round of fixtures told us a lot about whether this team was the real deal. Now is the time to show its real talent.
If anything, the narrow 1-0 win against Taiwan Steel last weekend was even more convincing. The solitary goal came from one of the few new arrivals — striker Chen Chao-An — and made Taipower the only club with a 100% record going into week three of the season.
Prediction and Pick
Taipower to Win-2000
Taipower will win this game. The only question is by how many goals. BetOnline’s over/under of four goals might be of some interest, considering MCU’s 4-2 loss to Taiwan Steel the other week. But there is not much point in pursuing the moneyline wager as a single bet here.
