This Saturday, Sandefjord will receive Molde, the current champions of the Norwich Eliteserien. The chances for the home team are not good, and we will check why.
Sandefjord finished last year’s OBOS-ligaen as runner-ups and earned their promotion for the first division. They had a great season, losing only three matches in the whole year, but that good level hasn’t been enough for this start of the season in the Eliteserien. So far, they have obtained only 3 victories, 1 draw, and 7 losses for a total of 10 points in 11 rounds. This balance is a poor record that places them in the 13th position. Their main problem in this top tier is their offensive. Only 9 goals scored place them the second-worst team offensively and this needs to be corrected very soon if they want to stay in this league for more than a year.
On the other side, we have Molde FK, the current champions of the Eliteserien. They also had a great 2019 season, imposing their power with a final gap of 14 points over their closest rival. This team won their fourth title in this league and all of them were achieved this decade. This season, they are currently placed 2nd after 9 victories, 1 draw, and 1 loss. Only 2 points separate them from the leader, so they are more than ready to defend their title. Also, their offensive side is amazing, with 33 goals scored in 11 rounds, for a total of 3.0 goals per game on average.
The fight for these 3 points are bending to one side only and, of course, it is the visitors’ side. Also, these teams already faced each other 4 times and Molde won the last 3 matches, while the fourth ended with a draw. For those reasons, I believe that a -1.25 AH for Molde will be enough to cover this bet.
