The Norwegian Tippeligaen provides a betting tip on Friday night in the SK Brann v Lillestrom clash. Brann sit sixth and boast a very strong home record but came unstuck versus the leaders Rosenborg in their last home game. Can Lillestrom heap more misery on the Brann faithful?
Match: SK Brann v Lillestrom
Betting tip: Back SK Brann to win
Best Odds: 2.0 with William Hill
Kick off: 18:00 09/08/2013
Even money looks extremely enticing on a home win on Friday night. The bare statistics highlight that the layers may have made a mistake – Brann have won seven of eight at their Bergen home, with the sole defeat coming at the hands of League leaders Rosenborg. Lillestrom meanwhile have lost six of nine on the road. So there looks a considerably better than 50% chance that the home side will prevail here. Odds makers may have decided the recent form of Brann is poor, with no wins in four, but three of those were away and Brann are a Jekyll and Hyde team, winning at home, while losing away. The only home game in that four game run was the aforementioned tie with Rosenborg. Lillestrom have a similar record (good at home, but poor away). They have lost four and drawn one of their five trips to sides in the top half, so sixth placed Brann really merit being odds-on. Take the even money.
