Molde, the reigning champions and the current 2nd placed team of Eliteserien, are going to host the 8th placed Brann at home. The match-up seems like a lop-sided one on the paper. Let’s analyze further to find out what would be the optimal bet here.
Having won 10 times, drawn once, and lost twice, Molde are having a season as almost good as Bodø/Glimt. They were undefeated in the first 9 rounds until their streak was snapped by none other than the current league leaders. Following that loss, they got a blowout victory against Vaaleranga but failed to follow-up in the next week where they were defeated 2:1 by Sandefjord on the road. However, they showed us once again yesterday why they are one of the two biggest title contenders this season. They rampaged Start with 5 goals to nil showing off their superior offensive capabilities. Talking about their offense, they also rank second in this category with 39 goals scored, which gives us 3 goals per game. Their goal difference (+26) also proves the quality gap between Molde and the rest of the league excluding Bodø/Glimt.
The visitors, on the other hand, are having a mediocre season with 4 victories, 3 draws, and 5 losses so far. They have gathered only 15 points in 12 rounds. At the moment, they are going through tough times as they have failed to win in the last 5 rounds. As a preliminary to this game, they faced Bodø/Glimt in the 6th round of this league and the result (5-0 defeat) was humiliating. I find their chances quite low against Molde FK as well.
If you also analyze the H2H records, you will realize the superiority of Molde over Brann. In the last 6 encounters these two teams faced each other, Molde became victorious 4 times, and the other two ended in a draw. Therefore, I would like to take my chances by backing the home side with -0.75 Asian Handicap.
