Our prediction for this Norway Eliteserien match:
Skagerak Arena will host Saturday’s football game between Odd and Sarpsborg 08. The hosts aim to keep their Europa League hopes alive, and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at the visitors, who sit in the bottom half of the table. Odd did well to roll over rock-bottom Aalesund 3-0 at the weekend, meaning that they are high on confidence ahead of the visit of Sarpsborg.
The good news for the hosts is that important defender Espen Ruud returns to contention after serving his ban in the triumph over Aalesund. The visitors, on the other hand, have little to play for in the season finale, and given their poor away record in the Eliteserien, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Jan Frode Nornes’ troops. In the first half of the season Sarpsborg defeated Odd 2-0, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
