The Norwegian Tippeligaen has provided some good value bets this season and the big game of the weekend could provide another. Third placed Rosenborg travel to fourth placed Haugesund with both sides still having genuine title chances. Where is the betting value in this clash?
Match: Haugesund v Rosenborg
Odds: BetVictor 3.5 (5/2)
These two sides are extremely well matched, and are separated by a single point in the table. Almost every aspect of their respective seasons show a similar record. Both teams are very difficult to beat. Rosenborg have lost just 1 of 14, while Haugesund have been defeated twice, again in 14. The amount of draws are also very close, the hosts have drawn 6 (42%) while the visitors have drawn 7 (50%).
As well as the results of the two clubs being similar, so are the scoring records, with goals scored and goals conceded being just a single goal different between the two. Given the trend of both sides to pick up draws, and the fact that every single statistic suggest these are two very closely matched teams, backing a stalemate looks the shrewd option, particularly at the odds on offer. It is also worth noting that this fixture has ended level in both of the last two seasons.
Back the draw at 3.5 (5/2) with BetVictor. The teams are evenly matched, have drawn plenty already this term, and a point would be seen as a decent result for both.
