Friday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me focus on the Norwegian 2nd tier and the Turkish Süper Lig. I’ve picked a selections from each league which I like the look of to give us a nice odds against double.
Raufoss vs Ranheim
⏰ Friday 29th October, 17:00
Two sides who are just outside the playoffs meet at the NAMMO Stadion as Raufoss host Ranheim. Both sides are only separated by goal difference as they sit in 8th and 9th respectively, three points behind KFUM in 6th.
Raufoss come into this fixture on a tricky run of form, winning only one of their last five, failing to keep a single clean sheet. In fact, Raufoss have only managed to keep four clean sheets all season, with only two of them coming at home. Raufoss have conceded 43 goals so far this season, with 11 of them coming in their last five games. They rarely fail to net though, with them scoring in 23 of their 25 league games this season. They’ve found the back of the net 45 times, with 28 of those goals coming at home. 9 of their 12 home matches this season have went over 2.5 goals.
Ranheim also come into this on a tricky run of form, with them only winning one of their last six games, failing to keep a clean in any of them. Ranheim have kept four clean sheets this season, however only one of them have came on the road. Ranheim have the third most leaky defence in the league, conceding 49 goals in 25 games. However, they are one of the leagues highest goal scorers, notching 47 times. 10 of Ranheim’s last 11 matches have seen at least three goals scored, with seven of them seeing four or more.
Trabzonspor vs Rizespor
🇹🇷 Süper Lig
⏰ Friday 29th October, 18:00
Two sides at opposite ends of the table meet at the Medical Park Stadyumu as Trabzonspor host Rizespor. The hosts are currently four points clear at the top of the Süper Lig whereas their visitors are bottom and five points from safety.
Trabzonspor defeated Göztepe 0-1 last time out to extend their winning run to three matches. Trabzonspor are still currently unbeaten in the league, winning seven of their first 10 matches. In their last home game, Trabzonspor came from behind to defeat title rivals Fenerbahçe 3-1. Along with Besiktas, Trabzonspor are the leagues top scores, scoring on 20 occasions. Trabzonspor have won all six of their fixtures against sides in the bottom half, scoring 12 times and conceding just three.
Rizespor have had a disastrous campaign so far and only got their first win last time out against fellow struggles Kasimpasa. Rizespor have lost eight of their first 10 fixtures in the Süper Lig, collecting only four points. Unsurprisingly, Rizespor have the worst defence in the division, conceding 22 goals, five more than the next worst sides. 14 of those goals they’ve conceded have came in their five away games, all in which they’ve lost. Rizespor habe a horrendous record away to Trabzonspor, losing 17 of their 20 visits, winning just once.
Bet of the Day
It should be an entertaining clash between two sides who are fighting to reach the playoffs. Both Raufoss and Ranheim have been scoring plenty of goals all season, but have struggled keeping them out also. The earlier meeting between the two saw six goals scored and with both sides goals stats, we should see at least half of that on Wednesday. Top host bottom in Turkey and it should be a pretty straight forward win for Trabzonspor. Trabzonspor are on a good run of form and are still uneaten in the league. They should comfortably defeat a side with only four points to their name after 10 rounds and who have the worst defensive record in the division. Trabzonspor have also won 17 of their last 20 home matches with Rizespor and that only adds to my belief the hosts will get the job done with a minimum of fuss.
- Raufoss vs Ranheim – Over 2.5 Goals
- Trabzonspor to win & over 1.5 Goals
- Double Pays 51/50 (William Hill)
