For those of you who prefer metrics, that’s a 94.7% success rate. That’s pretty good no matter what you do.Welcome back.

Let’s move to today.

Today, Zulte Waregem goes on the road to face Lazio in Europa League action. Zulte Waregem, from the top league in Belgium, does not have a player of note on its roster. Waregem has two wins, two losses and one draw in its last five games. One of those losses includes a 5-1 loss to Nice in its first Europa League competition. Yikes. By the way, both of its wins are by a goal in its own league. Conversely, Lazio comes from Serie A, one of Europe’s ‘big boys’. Lazio is 4-1 in its last five games and has notable players such as Nani and Ciro Immobile. Here’s how we’ll bet.

  • Pick 1: Lazio -410 (Bet $100 to win $24)
  • Pick 2: Draw +500 (Bet $21 to win $105)

Lazio’s is the home team for today’s match. On top of that, it has the better roster and has played a tougher schedule and still has better results from its games. Lazio should win this game knowing it needs points to try to get out of the group.

Fingers crossed.
