Aron Wright - May 24, 2018
Odds Ballklubb vs Kristiansund BK
Date: Sunday, 27 May 2018
Kick-Off at 17:00 UK
Venue: Skagerak Arena (Skien)
Odd have seen yet another loss on the road on Monday, as they got beaten by Stabaek 2-1 with late goals from Omoijuanfo and Brochmann, and they now host Kristiansund looking for another return to the winning ways amid an unpredictable spell of form across competitions.
Oddrane have beaten Notodden on penalties in NM Cupen, suffered quite a convincing 3-1 loss at Ranheim, and went on to bounce back with a thrashing 5-0 win over Sandefjord beforehand. However, they have been quite good at Skagerak Arena and we’ll surely see them motivated to impress once again – after beating Bodo / Glimt, Sarpsborg 08, Start, and Sandefjord in last four outings with 12 goals scored and just one conceded along the way.
Kristiansund will be no easy rivals to outgun and they’ve been regularly netting numbers of goals too. However, they’ve only ended a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win over Stromsgodset and their recent away performances (including losses at Hodd and Haugesund) will be far more worrying for manager Christian Michelsen.
We will now back Odds to build on such records and put on another great display in front of the home fans, going for a Home win at 1.75. With Kristiansund struggling to impress on the road, we do feel this comes as a great value at this point.
We don’t believe visitors will make their way on the score sheet as we’ve seen Odd base their success on defensive displays. With that in mind, we’ll now also back a No on Both teams to score, which comes at 1.95 and has attracted a lot of attention with value seekers already.
