The Norwegian Tippeligaen is currently led by Stromsgodset, who hold a slender lead over rivals Molde and Rosenborg. This weekend sees the table toppers travel to Odd Grenland who dropped into the relegation play-off spot last week. With all to play for, where is the betting value in this one?
Match: Odd Grenland v Stromsgodset
Odds: bwin 2.3 (13/10)
Stromsgodset hold a healthy 4 point lead at the top of table and have won 11 of their 15 fixtures so far this campaign. On the road, they have secured all 3 points in 4 of 7 matches, and the recent form is very, very strong with 6 wins and a draw from their last 7 Tippeligaen fixtures. The leaders have been ruthlessly efficient, squeezing wins out of most of the tight encounters they have had so far this term. While they may not have blown sides away, they have scored in every single league game thus far and know how to close a game out.
Odd Grenland are towards the other end of the form spectrum. They have lost 4 of the last 5, and their home form is concerning, they have mustered just 2 home wins in their 7 games up to this point. Defensively there are considerable question marks of late. They have shipped 9 goals in the last 2 games and 14 in the last 4. This dip in solidity has seen them slip into 14th – the relegation play-off spot. A visit from the League leaders is the last thing they need.
Take the visitors to strengthen their grip on top spot with a win in the Odd Grenland v Stromsgodset fixture. Odds-on would not look out of place, but Stromsgodset are still available at 2.3 (13/10) with bwin.
