Hello folks. Almost 50% of the
games ended with home wins this season so far and this is an
extraordinary fact. Having said that and after looking the today's
games schedule, the results could be different.
Lillestrom - Odd. Match of the Day in my view between two teams which share strengths and weaknesses. Both of them performed unexpectedly well in recent Cup games against top teams Brann and Rosenborg and did not lose. I expect an open game with at least 3 goals. The Over 2.5 goals market pays out generously on Betfair exchange today at price nearly 2.00 (Evens). Feeling adventurous? The game could end up with a draw of 2-2 or 3-3 score.
Sandefjord - Haugesund. I am a bit ''surprised'' to see the hosts at the last place of the leader-board. I think today they are in troubles against Haugesund's recent good form. Over 2.5 goals is my tip an I would extend the value to visitor's win with Over 2.5 goals.
Ranheim - Sarpsborg. What a surprise by Renheim! They enjoy sitting on the 3rd top spot but Sarpsborg will try to ruin this today. Its a big game for sure and draw gathers high chances. Although I favour the Over 2.5 goals market, it worth a punt on 1-2 & 2-2 scores. I value the visitors' slightly more because of their experience in getting results in derbies.
Stabaek - Bodo/Glimt. The home team is in crisis. They can't get the right results. Either they will score few to many goals but they will concede more, or either they won't score at all and again will drop point(s). Bodo in the other hand, are distancing themselves from the relegation zone by one way or another and that is pretty much what they want.
I think that anything could happen in this game today and I quite can't out my finger on it. Against the odds, this game could finish with Under 2.5 goals result.
Start - Stromsgodset. Typical Start which hardly ''starts well'' the season and sweating all the way to the end, trying to avoid the relegation. In last home game, they won Bodo with score 1-0. That was a huge and unexpected surprise for the worst defence of the league so far, to keep a clean sheet. Did they finally figure out a way to stop conceding goals at least when they play at home? The visitors are a big disappointment so far and if they can't win this game then subsequently are getting in troubles. Once again, I will go against the odds and prefer the Under 2.5 goals rather the low price of the Over 2.5 goals.
Brann - Valerenga. The hosts look serious this year, undefeated in 12 games so far and 6 points ahead of the ''monopoly'' champions Rosenborg. The visitors are high on the leader board but their performances in away games is a concern. A good performance by Brann could lead easily to a win but will they maintain their good run? 2-3 goals is my tip for this game.
