Tuesday Over 3.5 Picks That Will Earn You Big

KAZAKHSTAN V FINLAND

Kazakhstan will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 0-2 WC Qualifiers - Europe loss in their previous game against Bosnia.

In that match, Kazakhstan managed 45% possession and 6 shots on goal with 1 on target. Bosnia had 19 attempts on goal with 6 of them on target. Smail Prevljak (25', 66') was the scorer for Bosnia.

It’s not been often in recent times that Kazakhstan haven’t conceded. The reality is that Kazakhstan have seen their defence breached in 6 of their previous 6 games, giving up 12 goals during that time.

Following on from being beaten in their last game against Ukraine in WC Qualifiers - Europe action, Finland and their travelling fans will hope for a better result here.

In that game, Finland had 54% possession and 11 attempts on goal with 5 of them on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Finland was Teemu Pukki (29'). For their opponents, Ukraine got 16 shots at goal with 5 on target. Andriy Yarmolenko (4') and Roman Yaremchuk (34') scored for Ukraine.

The trend of at least one team not managing to score in games featuring Finland has become fairly consistent in recent matches. Looking at their last six games shows that it’s occurred 5 times. In these clashes, opposing sides have hit a goal tally of 7 while Finland have scored 2. We shall soon see if that trend will end up being continued on here.

Prediction: Both team to score

ENGLAND V HUNGARY

England will be looking for a repeat result of a 0-5 WC Qualifiers - Europe triumph against Andorra.

In that game, England had 86% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 8 of them on target. For England, the goals were scored by Ben Chilwell (17'), Bukayo Saka (40'), Tammy Abraham (59'), James Ward-Prowse (79') and Jack Grealish (86'). Andorra got 1 shots at goal with 0 of them on target.

England have been on a persistent run of goalscoring form, finding the back of the net every time they’ve gone out to play in their last 6 games.

They’ve claimed a sum of 16 during that period while seeing the number of goals scored against them stand at 3.

Following on from suffering a loss in their previous game against Albania in WC Qualifiers - Europe action, Hungary and their fans will hope to get a better result this time.

In that game, Hungary had 64% possession and 7 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target. On the other side, Albania had 9 shots at goal with 3 on target. Armando Broja (80') scored for Albania.

The stats tell the story, and Hungary have been scored against in 6 of their last 6 games, letting opponents get 12 goals in all. At the back, Hungary could really do with shoring things up. It will be interesting to find out if that trend can be sustained here.

Prediction: Over 3 Goals

ALBANIA V POLAND

Albania, buoyed by their previous result, will be hoping for more of the same after a 0-1 WC Qualifiers - Europe triumph over Hungary.

In that match, Albania managed 36% possession and 9 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. The only player to score for Albania was Armando Broja (80'). Hungary had 7 attempts on goal with 2 of them on target.

In their past six games, Edoardo Reja's Albania have found the net 10 times giving them an average number of goals per match equal to 1.67.

Poland go into this meeting following a 5-0 WC Qualifiers - Europe win with the defeat of San Marino in their previous outing.

In that game, Poland managed 83% possession and 31 shots on goal with 12 of them on target. For Poland, goals were scored by Karol Świderski (10'), Tomasz Kędziora (50'), Buksa (84') and Krzysztof Piątek (90'). On the other side, San Marino got 2 shots on goal with 1 of them on target. Brolli (20' Own goal) was the scorer for San Marino.

In their previous six outings, Poland have helped themselves to a total of 16 goals. Poland have also not failed to score in every single one of those games. In that time, their defenders have seen 9 goals go against them. We will just have to see if that trend will be sustained here.

Prediction: Both team to score
