The Norwegian Tippeligaen provides a betting tip on Sunday. Lillestrom vs Haugesund looks a fairly routine mid table clash, with the visitors sixth and the hosts twelfth. Can either side collect a win that could kick start their campaign, or is a tight stalemate on the cards?
Matches: Lillestrom v Haugesund
Betting tip: Back Haugesund to win
Best Odds: 2.92 with Pinnacle
Kick off: 14:30 26/05/2013
Lillestrom have yet to really get going in this season’s Tippeligaen, and their home form of two wins, three draws and a solitary defeat looks mediocre at best. Study the form more deeply however, and it looks even poorer. They have yet to face any of the top three and have entertained generally weaker sides, they have also shipped a lot of goals, and have the second worst defence in the League. Favouritism in this clash is debatable, and the road form of Haugesund makes the price on an away win look enticing. They may not be the most consistent of teams generally, but they have a solid record against sides in the bottom six of four wins and a draw from five games. Their away record versus sides in the bottom half is two wins and a draw from three, so a win against twelfth placed Lillestrom – firmly in the bottom six – would come as no surprise. Odds approaching 2/1 (3.0) look inviting.
