KuPS vs Oulu Betting Tips: KuPS Win / Over 2.5 

KuPS have been in great form in recent weeks and they return to the Väre Areena this weekend now unbeaten in ten matches after a 2:1 win at Ilves last weekend. Picking up their third win in a row, Jani Honkavaara´s side have moved to the top of the division, ahead of VPS on goal difference. 

Back at the Väre Areena, KuPS boast a particularly strong record with victories recorded in each of their last five home fixtures. All five games saw at least three goals scored, with KuPS bagging 17 in the process, although they were unable to keep a clean sheet in their last four contests on home soil. 

Oulu make the trip to Kuopio having enjoyed an improved run of form in recent weeks. Despite sitting 10th in the 12-team division, the visitors have lost just one of their last five league matches.

However, Oulu have struggled on their travels this season. Rauno Ojanenn´s side have failed to win any of their last 10 away fixtures, with defeat suffered in three of last four road trips. Over 2.5 goals were scored in six of Oulu´s last seven away matches, indicating a strong possibility of a high-scoring outcome on Saturday. 

Recent meetings between these sides have also favoured KuPS. The hosts claimed victory in each of their five encounters, and in six of their last seven at Väre Areena.

Considering recent numbers, and the H2H record, a home win with at least three goals scored seems a likely outcome this weekend.
