Start vs Odd
Date: Monday, 27 August 2018
Kick-Off at 18:00 UK
Venue: Sparebanken Sor Arena (Kristiansand).
Start and Odd are going to wrap up the 20th round of the Norwegian Eliteserien on Monday afternoon.
Home side is having troubles in keeping their heads above the water and staying in the top flight.
They are two points behind the nearest safe spot and in the last two rounds they managed to remain undefeated.
Kevin Kabran and the lads are having troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’ net more frequently as they are the most inefficient side in the competition.
However, Start have improved their home performances as they haven’t suffered a defeat in front of their fans in the last five matches.
Odd are currently safe in the middle of the table being seven points ahead of the red line.
They haven’t suffered a defeat in the last four occasions, and tied three draws.
Dag Fagermo’s side has been pretty good in the front, while their defending is not too bad.
However, the visitors are not too successful when playing away from home as they managed to get back with a win just once from their nine outings.
Start vs Odd: Head-to-head
Odd have been much more successful in their head to head clashes as they lost just once in the last eleven games.
Start haven’t celebrated at home ground against their rivals since 2008 and their narrow 1-0 victory.
Their latest clashes have been very efficient and in the last six occasions the crowd was able to see at least three goals per match.
Start vs Odd: Prediction
This is going to be a tight clash and the hosts find it very important in their battle for the survival. Although they haven’t celebrated a home victory over Odd for ten years, Start might win valuable three points and get away from the relegation zone. Their home displays and visitors’ bad away form are speaking in the favour of this tip.
Both sides have been involved in high scoring matches lately and in Odd’s last five matches we saw both teams being able to find the back of the net. As their encounters are also very efficient, this one should go over 2.5 margin.
Start vs Odd: Bet Tips
Home win @ 2.70
Over 2.5 goals @ 1.75.
