Why is PSV a safe bet to win?

The match happens on PSV’s grass at Philips Stadion. That alone makes the Netherlands League’s top team the one to beat.

But if home pitch wasn’t enough of an incentive to back Eindhoven, how about the fact they’ve won 3-of-4 with a draw? In their last, PSV dusted Heracles Almelo 2-0. Eindhoven is hot.

PSV vs. Borussia Dortmund Betting Prediction

Both teams are playing lights out. But one team offers overlay odds. That would be the Bundesliga squad, which is blasting their opponents no matter if they’re the road or home team.

This should be a terrific battle. Dortmund is playing great soccer and because of that deserves to be the one to consider backing. If don’t like Dortmund, consider the draw. Only back PSV if you believe the odds are fair, which this handicapper doesn’t.
