Wednesday’s Football Bet of the Day see’s me focus on the top two in the Norwegian top flight as both sides look to keep the pressure on each other and gain another three points.
Molde vs Strømsgodset
⏰ Wednesday 30th June, 17:00
Molde host Strømsgodset at the Aker Stadion on Wednesday teatime. Molde currently sit in 2nd place behind Bodø/Glimt on goal difference having played a game less whereas Strømsgodset sit in mid table in 10th position.
Molde come into this after securing a fantastic 0-2 win away to champions Bodø/Glimt. That’s now four wins in a row now in which they’ve scored eleven goals. Molde have won four of their five games on home turf scoring a minimum of two goals in all five of them. Molde have won all three home games against bottom half sides in which they’ve scored ten goals.
Strømsgodset come into this after defeating 3rd bottom Sandefjord at home to keep up their unbeaten start at home. It’s a different story on the road as they are currently winless having secured just a solitary point out of a possible twelve. Strømsgodset have already lost away to two sides in the top four including a 7-2 thumping away to Bodø/Glimt. Overall, that’s twelve goals conceded in four away games.
Sandefjord vs Bodø/Glimt
⏰ Wednesday 30th June, 17:00
Champions Bodø/Glimt travel to the Release Arena to take on Sandefjord. Bodø/Glimt currently sit top above Molde on goal difference but have played a game more whereas Sandefjord currently occupy the relegation play off spot in 14th and are just a point above the automatic relegation zone.
Last time out Sandefjord got thumped 4-0 away to Strømsgodset which makes it five defeats in seven games. A big problem for them is the sheer amount of goals they concede. That’s now 16 goals conceded so far this season, no side on average has shipped more (2.29 goals conceded per match). Sandefjord have lost three of their four matches at home so far including 1-3 & 1-2 defeats to both Molde and Rosenborg.
Bodø/Glimt bounced back from their 0-2 defeat to Molde by thrashing Stabæk 4-1 in which they were 4-0 up after 32 minutes. Whilst Bodø have dropped points in four of their eleven games this season, those were all against top half sides. Glimt have won all six of their games against bottom half sides scoring an eye catching 20 goals. Glimt have scored a minimum of two goals in all seven of their victories so far this season.
Bet of the Day
Molde look to extend their winning streak to five and should do so at home to Strømsgodset. Such is their strong attack, they should do so by scoring at least two goals. Bodø/Glimt have a 100% record against bottom half sides and should keep that record intact against a Sandefjord side that are conceding too many goals.
- Molde to win & over 1.5 goals
- Bodø/Glimt to win & over 1.5 goals
