Valerenga vs Odd BK Prediction
Pick: Valerenga to Win
REASON FOR THIS FREE TIP:
- Stretching back to last term, Valerenga have lost just one of their last 18 home matches, winning 11.
- The hosts have won their last four meetings against Odd BK in Oslo.
- Odd BK have picked up just one point from their three away outings this season.
Enga a reliable outfit in Oslo
Valerenga were stuffed 4-1 by Viking in Stavanger on Sunday but much better is expected of Dag-Eilev Fagermo’s side back on home turf against Odd BK this Wednesday night.
Third last season, Enga have made an underwhelming start to the new campaign with just 11 points collected from their first seven games, and their performance at the weekend was not one fitting of a side who will embark upon European football later this summer.
The Oslo outfit are generally reliable on their own turf though, and while they were beaten 1-2 here by current second placed side Kristiansund last month, that marked their only defeat in 18 starts at Intility Arena (W11, D6).
Valerenga should be able to enhance that record and kick start their season in midweek, with visitors Odd BK third bottom of the early standings. The away side have picked up just one point from their three away trips thus far, while they’ve lost their last four encounters against Enga in Oslo.
The hosts are no more than fairly priced for this, but they’re a solid wager and we expect them to post a 2-1 victory.
