Conclusion & Betting analysis

I’m a little bit surprised that Haugesund are as short as 1.80 to win this match. I’m not saying they won’t win but I just don’t like the idea of trusting them at such a short price. They failed against Aalesund here a few weeks ago and although weather conditions were against them on that occasion I think FKH prefer being underdogs. Sandefjord could certainly dig their heels and I see something like a 1-1 or even 0-0 draw. Under 2.5 would’ve interested me if it was earlier in the season but weird things can happen at this time of year. I suspect a fairly tight contest though which could be decided by a set piece or something.

Prediction:  0-0

Recommended bet: None
