The Tippeligaen throws up a betting tip on Friday night, when pace setters Stromsgodset entertain third placed Aalesund. Godset have managed to transfer their traditional strong home form, to their away fixtures too, helping them reach the top of the table, can Aalesund derail the title bid?
Matches: Stromsgodset v Aalesund
Betting tip: Back Stromsgodset -1.5 Asian Handicap
Best Odds: 2.25 with Bet365
Kick off: 18:00 24/05/2013
Stromsgodset obliged for this column the last time they played in front of their own fans, and they look a solid price to do so again. Home form of five wins and a draw from six fixtures is nothing new for Godset, and four of those matches saw the hosts win by two clear goals or more. Aalesund have risen to third in the table based mainly on their own home form – their away form is nowhere near as good. They have lost their last three road games, including a heavy defeat at bottom side Molde. Their away successes have come at sides in the lower reaches of the League and their only trip to a side in the top half resulted in a 2-0 loss at Brann. Stromgodset have won their last three and are coming in to this game on the back of a rampant showing away at Start, where they won 6-0.
