Bettors taking their chances in the J. League 2022 outright betting market must stay updated with the latest happenings in the league, especially that J1 is nearing its end. With less than 10 games to play for each club, matches become more crucial as every win, draw, or loss can impact the league, especially those fighting for the trophy.
Yokohama F. Marinos, Kawasaki Frontale, and Sanfrecce Hiroshima have already broken the 50-point mark and are currently in the top three. The September fixtures are critical for these teams to hold firm of their standings with few points separating them. Given this, knowing who among the current top three clubs are at an advantage is crucial for bettors to reconsider their betting decisions in the season’s final stretch.
The current odds in Singapore Pools for Sanfrecce Hiroshima to win J1 2022 is 30.00 as of September 15. Sanfrecce, also called “Viola”, took the top spot from Yokohama F. Marinos after beating Shimizu S-Pulse in Matchweek 28. Unfortunately, their stay in first place was not for long as they lost against Kawasaki Frontale, which dropped them to third place with 50 points.
Of the top three teams, Sanfrecce has five games left, as both Yokohama and Kawasaki still have six matches to play. Winning these five remaining fixtures is undeniably the most favourable result for Viola to have a shot for the J1 trophy.
To start things off, they take on Nagoya Grampus on September 17. Getting this win can temporarily push them to second place by the end of the month if Kawasaki loses points.
Yokohama F. Marinos
Yokohama F. Marinos already established an eight-point lead against fellow J1 2022 title favourites Kawasaki Frontale and Kashima Antlers in early August. However, Tricolor gave up their huge advantage, with Kawasaki and Sanfrecce Hiroshima performing well last month. In Matchweek 28, they drew their game against FC Tokyo that allowed Sanfrecce to overtake them in the first place.
After this, the Marinos scored three straight victories over Shonan Bellmare, Avispa Fukuoka, and Kyoto Sanga FC – J1 teams at risk of relegation to the J2 League next season. These wins were enough for last season’s runner-up to claim leadership again with 58 points, five and eight points ahead of Kawasaki and Sanfrecce, respectively.
Yokohama can now focus on J1 League because they have no active competition. Favoured on Singapore Pools football odds to win J. League 2022, the Marinos still have six matches left to take advantage of. Scoring victory over Hokkaido Consadole in their last fixture this month can keep them atop the standing by the end of September.
The defending champion Kawasaki Frontale won all their four August matches to climb back in the top three. However, their winning streak ended in Matchweek 28 with Shonan Bellmare defeating them. In the following weeks, Kawasaki bounced back by beating Sanfrecce Hiroshima and earning a draw over Nagoya Grampus.
Kawasaki is currently in second place with 53 points. Like Yokohama F. Marinos, the Blue-blacks still have six fixtures and no other competitions aside from J1 2022. They can come closer to Yokohama and put pressure on Sanfrecce by getting an important win against Kashiwa Reysol in their last September match.
As J1 2022 is down to less than seven matches per club, bettors who bet on the outright winner market early this season can reconsider their bets. Bettors can hedge their initial bets and bet on the current top three clubs and take advantage of the odds offered by a different sportsbook or Singapore Pools for these teams, since they are currently contending for the title.
