The Argentine Primera Division the premier men's soccer league in Argentina. The league is composed of 30 clubs with a system of promotion and relegation with the Primera B Nacional (second division).
An Argentine Primera Division season runs from August to May. Each team plays the other 29 teams in a single round-robin tournament. They also play an additional match against its main rival team, named "Fecha de Clásicos" (Derbies Fixture).
In Argentine Primera Division over under betting, you are wagering that the total number of goals would either be over or under a particular number. An Argentine Primera Division over under bet looks like:
|CA Independiente||Under 2.5||-120|
In the example above, "Over 2.5" is the underdog (indicated by the "+" sign). Betting $100 on "Over 2.5" goals wins you $100 if the game's total score reaches 3 goals or more. Meanwhile, "Under 2.5" is the favorite (indicated by the "-" sign). Betting $120 on "Under 2.5" goals wins you $100 if the game's total score is 2 goals or less.
The winner of the match is irrelevant in an over under bet. All that matters is the final score.
Handicapping Argentine Primera Division over under bets can be a bit tricky. Since teams face each other only once a season, it's tougher to benchmark the performance of each team against a particular opponent. Plus with teams getting promoted or relegated after every season, the league's landscape frequently change.
But the riddle of Argentine Primera Division over under bets can be solved by picking your battles. You don't have to bet on all Argentine Primera Division games.
Stay away from over under lines that have an overwhelming favorite. Overwhelming favorites expose your bankroll to greater risks with little gain. And it only takes a lucky goal (or save) for the bookmaker to take a huge bite off your bankroll.
Check for streaks and team form. Teams in a winning streak and in good form are likely to keep playing well and score more than dysfunctional ones. And always look both ways - defense and offense. Some teams may not necessarily be scoring well, but their defense may be top notch, making under bets more appetizing.
Look at the schedule. Though many Argentine Primera División games are held on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, some teams play in other days of the week. Inevitably, some teams would have shorter turnaround times for their next match, causing fatigue and listless performances.
And always check for injuries or suspensions. Unavailable key players will directly affect the outcome of your over under bet.
