THE Norwegian leagues are now in full flight and I intended to focus on these games over the coming months and into the summer when the other leagues come to an end.
They are great leagues for goals and even at this early stage in the season they are already seeing their fair share of goals. Bodo /Glimt host seasonal title challengers Molde in their 3rd match of the season and I'm taking this to be an open affair with both sides finding the net.
I'll also be backing over 1.5 match goals from the eight 5pm KO's and its something that should land a good few times over the course of season
Bodo / Glimt vs Molde (KO 5pm)
After a really disappointing season for the hosts last year, they have started this campaign in style winning their opening game against current last years title winners Rosenborg 2-0 followed by a 5-4 win away at Mjondalen. Those two wins leave them just 4 wins short of the total number of games they won last season.
The fixture computer hasn't been kind to them with last seasons 2nd place side Molde up next but having already put Rosenborg to the sword, they'll fancy their chances of causing another upset.
Molde find themselves in their usual lofty position in the league with two wins and a draw so far (1-1 3-1 4-0 ) but they face a stern test here
14 of the last 16 meetings between the sides have seen both sides score and given both sides both have made excellent starts to the season, this should be a cracking game with Bodo / Glimt more than capable of causing Molde problems
- Over 2.5 match goals
- 4/5 (SportingBet) (NAP)
- All 8 Norwegian 5pm KO's over 1.5 match goals
- 6/1 (Bet365)
Aberdeen vs Celtic (KO 2pm)
Scottish cup semi final action and one bet from me – young Dons's midfielder Lewis Ferguson has already been booked 11 times this season and I'm hoping the over exuberance of youth leads to the young lad picking up his 12th booking against a strong Celtic midfield
- Lewis Ferguson to be booked
- 6/4 (Skybet)
