Best Tip: Both teams to score

S.Rotterdam should have reason to feel optimistic ahead of this game and, funnily enough, so might Excelsior. The bookmakers can't split them and neither can we – there's no clear winner in this clash. So we look to the both teams to score market, where there's far more clarity. The form statistics, past head-to-head (H2H) records and bookies odds below are all pointing towards both sides scoring, and we think that's the tip to go with here.

The betting market is becoming increasingly convinced that both Sparta Rotterdam and Excelsior's attackers are going to deliver on Saturday, with the odds shortening on BTTS - yes and drifting on BTTS - no. The bettors predict proper action at both ends.
