Hacken-Kalmar Betting Preview: Visitors value to give Hacken heartache

Nanne Bergstrand's side are in decent form and Willie Duncan expects the them to take something from the trip to Rambergsvallen on Saturday afternoon
Kalmar will look to maintain their recent fine form when they travel to take on Hacken in the Swedish Allsvenskan on Saturday afternoon.

Despite sitting only seventh in the league table, Nanne Bergstrand’s men have lost just two of their last 12 league fixtures and will be keen to chalk up another three points when they visit Rambergsvallen this weekend.

Kalmar are priced up at a juicy 15/4 (4.75) with BetVictor to claim victory against a Hacken side that they currently lead by four points in the Allsvenksan table.

Peter Gerhardsson’s men, though, will be desperate to narrow that gap and they are chalked up as BetVictor’s 3/4 (1.75) favourites to emerge victorious this weekend while the same firm go 11/4 (3.75) that the contest ends level.

Hacken have managed just nine goals in seven league matches on home turf thus far this term while Kalmar have scored just nine in eight Allsvenskan matches on the road so neither side is in free-scoring form.

With that in mind, BetVictor’s 9/10 (1.90) quote for this weekend’s clash to feature fewer than three goals appears to represent outstanding value.

It should also be noted that only Helsingborgs boast a more impressive defensive record in the Allsvenskan this season than Bergstrand’s men, and it would appear that the visitors have been underestimated by the odds compilers ahead of their trip to Rambergsvallen.

BetVictor go even money (2.0) for the visitors in the double chance market while punters should also give serious consideration to the even money (2.0) quote from the same firm for Kalmer (+1) in the handicap market ahead of this weekend’s clash.

Gerhardsson’s side have won just three of their seven league matches at home so far this season and the visitors, with their confidence buoyed by recent results, are more than capable of taking something from this clash.

Therefore, the even money (2.0) quote from BetVictor for Kalmar (+1) in the handicap market should be snapped up here while those looking to squeeze extra value from the contest should back the visitors at a generous 13/5 (3.60) in the draw no bet market this weekend.
