Match: Helsingborg v Osters
Betting tip: Back Helsingborg -1.5 on the Asian Handicap
Best Odds: 2.02 with Bet365
Kick off: 18:05 15/07/2013
Helsingborg are short priced favourites in the match odds market and it is easy to see why, given the relative form of both clubs. There is however, value in backing the Reds to secure a more comfortable victory. The Asian handicap market has Helsingborg at fractionally odds against to make up a -1.5 start, and their form this season suggests that offers an edge. They have won five of eight at home – and four by two goals or more. However, when they have hosted sides from the bottom half of the table, they have won all three with ease (5-0, 3-0 and 5-1). Osters IF are getting into the losing habit. Beaten eight times in the last eleven, and five of those defeats were by two goals or more. Again, when we drill into the form the odds offer good value. When travelling to sides placed higher than them in the standings (the top ten) they have lost three of four, all by two or more. Back the hosts to record a comfortable victory.
