Two sides with contrasting form meet in the Swedish Allsvenskan - our tipster Hugh Wilson is backing goals and has a 12/5 value bet
The season is just over a third of the way through, and Elfsborg have started well in their quest to retain their league title, sitting in second position, trailing the leaders by four points. Gefle, on the other hand, have only mustered 11 points in 12 matches and are sitting on the brink of the relegation places.
Elfsborg come into this match in fantastic form. Jorgen Lennartsson’s men have only lost once this season, winning six of their last seven matches. Dl Gule have only lost to their opponents once in their last six head-to-head matches, and it’s no surprise BetVictor price them at 4/11 (1.36) to take all three points.
Gefle have not had the best of starts to the season so far. Per Olsson’s men haven’t won in their last nine matches and have recorded only two wins to date.
Gefle are dangerously close to the bottom three, sitting in 13th position, two points above Syrianska and Brommapojkarna, and three above bottom of the league Halmstad. BetVictor don’t give them much hope here either, pricing them at 17/2 (9.50) to take the win. The same firm offer the draw at 19/5 (4.80).
A bet that stands out in this match is over 2.5 goals at 3/4 (1.75) with BetVictor. This seems like a fantastic price, considering it would have paid out in five of Elfsborg’s last six matches. If you take into fact that the bet would have easily landed in Gefle's last four league away games, then it’s a bet tough to ignore.
For those looking for more value, it’s worth looking at Elfsborg’s man of the moment, Lasse Nilsson. The 31-year-old have been in great form this season, and is top scorer for the club with six goals in the league. The bet on him to be the first goal scorer for Elfsborg at 12/5 (3.40) seems like a bet too good to miss.
