Odd vs Sandefjord: Preview and Predictions

Odd vs Sandefjord Norwegian Eliteserien Match Preview 16th May 2018

Odd BK vs Sandefjord
Norwegian Eliteserien
Date: Wednesday, 16 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK / 18:00 CET
Venue: Skagerak Arena, Skien.

Odd ended the three-win streak at the weekend by falling 31 away at fourth-placed Ranheim, bur they will have a nice opportunity to rebound instantly as they are to host the struggling Sandefjord side just three days later.

The visitors just can’t seem to catch a break and they’ll head into this off the back of five straight defeats in all competitions. The shocking NM Cupen against the lower-division Skeid forced the managerial change as team parted way with the Swedish coach Magnus Powell. Nevertheless, it is yet to bring an impact as Sandefjord failed to find the back of the net in two following ties as well, losing to both Lillestrom and Valerenga in last two rounds.

Sandefjord thus did not score at all in last four games in all competitions and they’ll face hard times ending the poor streak against the in-form likes of Odd.

Odd vs Sandefjord: Head-to-head

The head to head stats entirely favour Odd who won 16, drew 4 and lost just 1 of 21 encounters with Sandefjord.

Odd have been super dominant in matches at Skagerak Arena where they won 12 and drew 2 of 14 meetings with Sandefjord.

Sandefjord failed to find the net in any of last three encounters with Odd.

Odd vs Sandefjord: Prediction

Dag-Eilev Fagermo has reasons to be thrilled with his team’s form at home where Odd won three on the bounce after holding the defending champions Rosenborg to a 1-1 draw in the first home fixture this season. Furthermore, Odd bagged an impressive three-goal tally in each of last two home wins over Sarpsborg 08 and Start and we have to see them as massive favourites to keep such form going against the out-of-form Sandefjord here.

The home win is a banker at 1.40, while we will alternatively back the hosts to keep a clean sheet at 2.00 knowing that the visitors did not score in any of last four matches in all competitions.

Odd vs Sandefjord: Bet Tips

  • Odd to win @ 1.40
  • Odd to keep a clean sheet @ 2.00.
