The Swedish Allsvenskan provides a betting tip on Thursday, when Kalmar FF face Osters IF. The hosts have started the season well but need to turn the draws into victories in order to keep pace with those clubs aiming for European football. Osters had some eye catching results early in the campaign, but have gone sharply downhill, so where will the points go?

Kalmar Betting tipKalmar have only lost twice this term, and both of those defeats came versus sides in the top four. Back at home, they can take advantage of an Osters team that is having real struggles. The visitors have lost five straight matches and are dropping down the table at an alarming rate after what was a fairly decent start to the season. Backing the home win outright is one option, but Kalmar have not been able to put opponents away as often as they would like (three draws at home, from five starts – two wins in the others), and it may pay to have some level of insurance on a draw. The quarter-ball head start for the home team ensures that half the stake is returned in the event of a draw. As the hosts have drawn a blank on two occasions already, it might be prudent to have some cover, though braver souls can take solace in Oster’s defensive record (just two clean sheets from nine), and take the higher price on a home win outright.
