MONDAYS aren't usually the most exciting days of the week but the traders look to be treating us to a few surprises today that can be taken advantage of.

Nordic action is the order of the day, with Icelandic games galore and a bit of Norway chucked in for good measure.

ICELAND 4 DIELD- Bet365 (in-play)
Berserkir v Snaefell/Geislinn, 4pm

Our old friends Berserkir are back and open their league account against a team we were convinced would never be seen again on a bookies site the world over.

Snaefell set records of the sheer ridiculous last season when they conceded 175 goals in 15 league matches as they were trounced in every game they played. This included a 24-0 league gubbing and an astonishing 31-0 Cup defeat. This season they have merged with another side Geislinn, but the early form suggests that though there is some improvement there, they will still be struggling to put any wins on the board.

Snaefell's league cup record this season saw them lose all five matches conceding 19 goals and scoring 6. They also lost their opening Icelandic Cup match 5-1 to a non-league side so though it's been nowhere near as tragic as last season they are still a side that looks likely to struggle badly this season.

Berserkir are also a 5th tier side but have had a very impressive opening to their season and look to be a team who will be challenging at the top of the table. Berserkir reached the final of the league cup competition where they were finally beaten 3-0 by a KB side which is made up of reserve players from higher tier Icelandic side. During Berserkir's cup campaign they won every group game they played scoring 19 and conceding 9 and also had a 6-2 victory over KFS in the Icelandic Cup before crashing out in the next round to a team from the 3rd tier.

Berserkir could go to town with Snaefell here today if they get an early goal and if Bet365 have a goals spread or team goals on this match we'll be having a go at the big odds in this one.

O1.5 & O2.5 half-time goals
O4.5ft – O6.5 full-time goals
O2.5-4.5 Berserkir Team Goals

Other Icelandic games to keep an eye on are the Skinandi v Kormákur/Hvöt game at 2pm. Skinandi scored 26 goals in five league cup games and face up to Kormákur/Hvöt who are new to the league system and a bit of an unknown. The only stats to be found on this side are they were beaten by 9-0 by Magni, a 3rd tier side, in the Cup.

Icelandic U19 action is also starting to reappear with the bookies. Last season fortunes were made on these games and even though it's early days there has been some gems already, made even better by the fact SportingBet are offering full markets on these games. There's not much form to go on but it's worth keeping an eye on how these games go in-play.

In Norway Ostsiden take on Skarbovik at 1pm in a game that should see the home side come out on top and hopefully bag a few goals. Also keep an eye around 6-7pm for some of the 4th tier Norwegian games coming in-play. Bet365 have been adding a few surprise games from these leagues in and last week there was some absolute smashings laid down with full markets available.

Good luck with your betting today and if anything else comes up we will post in the comments section of this post to keep you updated.

    Berserkir are getting smashed in already here. Since I started to write this post they’ve gone from 1/5 to win to 1/16. Possibility that no goals spread will be offered on this one now if this keeps up.

      BP, that really is Monday madness, 1-5 to 1-16 is mental.

  2. bounty punter 9 years ago

    Still getting 1/5 with paddy power for Berserkir but as you say that might change

  4. bounty punter 9 years ago

    Bet365 have ditched the Berserkir game but still due in the in-play diary. Early odds been truly smashed in that one.

    2-0 Ostsiden after 26mins for anyone who got on..

  5. Madi 9 years ago

    I got on ostsiden to win at evens so thanks for that :)

  6. bounty punter 9 years ago

    Paddy Power has brought the Iceland 4 Dield game between Skinandi and Kormakur in with FULL markets.. hopefully same again for the Berserkir game.

  7. r.walker 9 years ago

    Im on PP.Will they offer markets once it goes in play.Theyv only got WDW or double chance at the moment.

  8. bounty punter 9 years ago

    PP will hopefully offer full markets once this comes in-play like they did with the Skinandi game. Get on quick as some of the big online betting communities are on to this game and prices will get smashed in very quickly I would imagine..

  9. r.walker 9 years ago

    The market for Berserkir has just disappeared.

  10. bounty punter 9 years ago

    Was too good to be true a game like this being in-play like we said at the start.. tragic news this is as was set for biggest bets in a long time here.

    Been dumped from Bet365 in-play diary now aswell… gutted.

    Think a lesson has been learned here. Anything like this that we find in the future will be getting posted as late as possible.

  11. r.walker 9 years ago

    Any ideas BP?Thanks for the tips,looks like i cant back them today but hope they win.

  12. Bounty Punter 9 years ago

    1-0ht, 3-0ft.. saved from ourselves by the traders here in what was a shocking scoreline.

    77% possession, 16 corners and only 3 goals. Poor stuff

    • Mr Fixit 9 years ago

      BP, if the traders had showed some balls they’d have made a killing.

  13. bounty punter 9 years ago

    They certainly would have Mr F. They’d have cleaned my bank out that’s for sure..

    A close shave for us all. I was ready to go big as well :D
