Tippeligaen Form: Lillestrom – Honefoss
Honefoss have been a good team to keep on side of late, and there is little reason to abandon them this weekend. Lillestrom have enjoyed a good spell recently, winning 2 and drawing 2, but their odds have been slashed beyond the merit that those results deserve, and their record of 2 home wins all season does little to justify odds of a fraction over even money. The hosts have conceded in 7 of their 9 home games and look poor value.
Honefoss continue to be overlooked by layers, despite a strong and consistent season. They have risen to 5th in the table on the back of a 10 game run which has seen them beaten just twice and record 5 wins – including an eye catching win away at Rosenborg (the only side to achieve that this term, home or away) and the most recent match which saw them draw with leaders Stromsgodset. The small price on a home win looks out of step with the relative strengths of the two sides
Lillestrom – Honefoss. Oppose Lillestrom and lay the home win at Betfair (2.05). The saying goes “form is temporary, class is permanent” and Honefoss can take another big step in proving their class to the bookmakers with a result on the road.
