Sunday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me head to one of my favourite divisions, the Norwegian OBOS-ligaen and there’s a side who I like the look of to score at least twice against their struggling opponents.
Skeid vs Raufoss IL
⏰ Sunday 24th July, 14:00
Raufoss will look to return to winning ways, as they travel to the Nordre Äsen to take on struggling Skeid in Oslo on Sunday afternoon.
Despite racing into a two-goal lead, Skeid lost 3-2 to Åsane last time out, leaving them seven points adrift of automatic safety. Skeid have now lost 13 of their opening 15 fixtures in the OBOS-ligaen this season, with both their wins coming at home to fellow strugglers Grorud and Stjørdals-Blink. Gard Holme’s hosts remain one of three sides yet to keep a clean sheet this season, with them also conceding on multiple occasions in 11 of their opening 15 matches, including in each of their last four. In fact, Skeid have the joint-worst defensive record in the Norwegian second-tier, conceding 34 times.
Raufoss suffered their first defeat since the end of May, as they were thrashed 0-5 by runaway league leaders Brann last time out. Prior to that loss, Christian Johnsen’s side were unbeaten in six matches, winning each of their last five. Raufoss have now lost just one of their last five on their travels, winning each of their last two against fourth-placed Sandnes Ulf (1-4) and bottom side Stjørdals-Blink (1-2). Raufoss have found the back of the net in each of their last five away fixtures, scoring on multiple occasions in each of their last three on the road.
Bet of the Day
Raufoss had won five on-the-spin prior to their 0-5 defeat by runaway league leaders Brann last week and I expect them to get back to winning ways against a struggling Skeid side that’s lost 13 of their opening 15 league fixtures. Gard Holme’s hosts have the joint-worst defence in the Norwegian second-tier, conceding 34 goals and are one of three sides still yet to register a clean sheet this season. Christian Johnsen’s visitors have found the back of the net eight times in their last three matches on their travels, scoring on multiple occasions in each of them and I like the look of them to bag another brace against this leaky Skeid defence.
