While I was checking my previous prediction, I found this duel between Start and Valerenga which I think the bookies are missing somehow and the line offered is a bit lower than expected. So let’s take a look at it to find a good pick and increase our winnings.
IK Start are having a terrible season so far and their position in the table confirms that. They are placed second to last with a poor record of 1 victory, 6 draws, and 7 losses after 14 rounds. The team obtained three consecutive draws last month and we thought that everything was going to improve but it wasn’t like that. August started with a 3-0 victory – their one and only – over Mjøndalen, but it all went down again after facing Molde, who beat them with a 5-0 result. There are many games left to close this season, but the inspiration of this team only lasted a couple of weeks and it will be really hard to fix what they need to continue in this league for another year.
On the other hand, Valerenga are making efforts to stay close with the top teams. They are in the 4th position after 6 victories, 5 draws, and only 2 losses. The team only lost once of their last 8 meetings in the league and 4 of them ended with a clean sheet, which says a lot of their defensive skills. Also, they hosted the current leaders, Bodø/Glimt, last Saturday and obtained a valuable 2-2 draw. In general lines, Valerenga only need to adjust a bit their offensive and defensive lines and make them one group in order to accomplish their biggest goal called Europa League Qualification.
After checking both teams’ stats, I think that the line should be around 0.5 and 0.75. However, the bookies are offering a 0.25 line which sounds really nice for our purposes. For those reasons, I will place my bet on Valerenga -0.25 AH which is currently offering odds close to 2.0.
