Taichung Futuro vs. Red Lions Betting Preview – Taiwan Premier League, May 17

| May 16, 2020 1:29 am PDT
Taichung Futuro vs. Red Lions Taiwan Premier League

One of the surprise teams of the season hosts bottom-of-the-table Red Lions this weekend, as Taichung looks to continue to keep the pressure on the top teams while boosting its own hopes of a possible league title.

An influx of new faces during the offseason at Taichung has had the desired effect, as its unbeaten record is still intact. You can find out how I think this one will go as I lay out my Taichung Futuro vs. Red Lions prediction and betting pick below.

Latest Taichung Futuro vs. Red Lions Odds

Taichung Futuro to Win-1249
The Draw+1044
Red Lions to Win+1424

Not even the odds for the draw from online sportsbook MyBookie are really worth investigating due to the glaring difference in skill level between these two clubs. As with a number of fixtures in the Taiwan Premier League, this game is severely one-sided, and a home win is the only likely outcome, even if the price doesn’t warrant any interest as far as betting goes.

Match Preview

After four weeks of tough fixtures in which Taichung has definitely held its own, this weekend sees the visit of the weakest side in the division, allowing the home team to relax a little. The goalless draw with Taipower last week was probably the most impressive result for Taichung this season, but it has also beaten Taiwan Steel and drawn with Tatung and Hang Yuen.

After the worryingly close game against NTUS on the opening day of the season, the Taichung team has gelled successfully and now looks like one of the most accomplished in the league. Although Taipower should easily pick up another win on Sunday, Taichung can keep in the hunt at the top with a comfortable win of its own against Red Lions.

The outcome of this game is so predictable as Red Lions has really struggled this season, losing all five games up until now while conceding around five goals each weekend on average.

Most worrying for the basement dwellers was the 6-1 thrashing it received at the hands of Ming Chuan University last week. That was one of the few fixtures that Red Lions might have thought it had a hope of a positive result, so going up against a Taichung side that is looking ominously good spells trouble for Francisco Arce’s men.

Taichung Futuro vs. Red Lions Betting Pick

Pick
  • Taichung Futuro to Win
    -1249

There is no way that Taichung won’t win this game. But the less-than-attractive odds mean nothing as there is no value in backing the home side to be victorious. As with some of the other games this week, there might be some more value in betting on the goals totals or even on handicap bets if your bookmaker offers those markets.
