The action in Sweden remains extremely competitive and the race for a top 3 finish, and therefore European football, is fierce. Atvidaberg are well in touch and face a home game versus Orebro on Friday night. Where is the smart money going in Atvidaberg – Orebro?
Match: Atvidaberg – Orebro
Bet: Atvidaberg win
Odds: Bet365 1.73 (3/4)
Punters who have been opposing Orebro will have done pretty well this term. They have lost 10 of 16 in total this season and 5 of 8 when on the road. They have only managed to avoid away defeats when travelling to teams sitting low in the table – their solitary away victory came at 15th placed GAIS. There is little to suggest they can halt their abysmal form on Friday evening.
Atvidaberg have been beaten twice at home – but won the remaining 6. Their recent home form is very strong, a 5-1 hammering of League leaders Elfsborg was backed up with a solid 2-0 win against 4th placed AIK Solna. 24 year old striker Viktor Prodell has 12 goals in 15 games and will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing up to one of the worst defences in the division.
Atvidaberg are odds-on, but even so, they should be much shorter than Bet365′s 1.73 (3/4). Orebro are rock bottom, lost back to back games against the previously out of form Hacken, and look up against it at Koppervallen.
