The Betpal Football Bet of the Day moves to Norway on Friday night, for the game between Fredrikstad and Odd Grenland. The home side are deep in the relegation mire and in desperate need of three points.
Match: Fredrikstad v Odd Grenland
Bet of the Day: Lay Fredrikstad
Best Odds: 2.16 at Betfair
It is very difficult to see how Fredrikstad can justify such a short price. They sit one off the bottom of the table, and have won just four or thirteen home fixtures this season (and two of the last seven). The assumption that the prospect of relegation might motivate them to perform better is undone by their recent form – they have lost four straight games and have conceded a total of nine goals in the last two. Odd Grenland are an extremely inconsistent bunch, but they have been beaten just twice in their last eight, and have not lost to any of the bottom six when on the road. They have let in only two goals during the last five, and that defensive solidity should ensure they can take at least a point from Fredrikstad. 6/5 is horribly short for a team who win so rarely in front of their own supporters.
