Taiwan Steel vs. Red Lions Odds, Prediction, and Pick – Taiwan Premier League, April 26
Taiwan Steel went big on new arrivals during the offseason and recruited some of the most exciting goal scorers in the Taiwan Premier League in a bid to win the title this year. But it has not been an unqualified success so far.
But beating Red Lions this weekend should be a fairly simple task, as the visitors seem to be the whipping boys of the division. It could be a case of just how many goals the home side scores.
Read on through this Taiwan Steel vs. Red Lions betting preview for the odds, my match prediction, and my pick.
Taiwan Steel v Red Lions Odds
There is absolutely no ambiguity with BetOnline’s pricing of this game. There are a number of fixtures in the Taiwan Premier League that are incredibly one-sided, and this is one of them. The odds might seem a little over the top, but this will be one of the shocks of the season if Red Lions manage to get a win here.
When Taiwan Steel brought in Mark Fenelus and Benchy Estama before the start of this season, it was read as a huge statement of intent. After finishing way off the pace last season and never in the top three since the rebranding of the league, Taiwan Steel looked as though it was really going to challenge this year.
The loss at home to Taipower last weekend doesn’t mean that those hopes have been completely shattered, but the 1-0 defeat was a bitter blow for manager Lo Chi-Chong and his players. Three points is expected here, and it should be a perfect opportunity for Fenelus and Estama to boost their team’s goal tally.
The thought of those two coming up against these Red Lions defenders must be giving head coach Francisco Arce nightmares. He will be hoping that he has some of his new Latin American recruits available at last, but they might not be enough to stop the onslaught.
It has been two consecutive 4-0 reverses for the Taipei City club, and that is probably the best it might have hoped for at this stage. Red Lions looks to be woefully behind the rest of the league in terms of talent, and this season could end up being a disaster.
Taiwan Steel vs. Red Lions Prediction and Pick
Taiwan Steel to Win-4000
This is another Taiwan Premier League game where the moneyline bet is not worth the outlay. There is no way that Taiwan Steel will not win this one, and the over/under being set at five goals tells its own story. Red Lions has only conceded four goals in a game so far, though, so maybe that wager is the one to go for.
