Haugesund enjoys the home ground advantage and despite trailing 8 points to the visitors. They did drop points recently but have done a better job at home, which pushes us to back the host for a win. For safer returns, the double chance favoring the Seagulls will probably be the best bet in the clash.
Besides, the match is sizing to be a tight encounter and Valerenga has a poor away form in the campaign. However, it will not affect their scoring legs in the game. So, the BTTS will probably be another suitable option for the home team.
