BK Hacken-AIK Betting Preview: Expect the away side to cruise home at a price tough to ignore

There's Allsvenskan action this evening and with Andreas Alm’s men gunning for top spot, our tipster Hugh Wilson thinks the away side are a well worth backing
BK Hacken host AIK in the Swedish top flight on Monday, just over two weeks since AIK came out on top in the reverse fixture 2-0. The away side are flying in the Allsvenskan this season, sitting in third position and with a great chance of winning the title.

Andreas Alm’s side trail leaders Malmo by three points albeit with a worse goal difference. A heavy victory today would see them top the league. Hacken, on the other hand, sit closer to the bottom three, but with seven points in hand over Oster in 14th, Peter Gerhardsson’s men should be safe this season.

Hacken come into this match without a victory in their last three games. Gerhardsson’s side did, however, come from two goals down away to Sparta Prague to draw in the first leg of their Champions League qualifier to keep themselves well in the tie.

The Wasps have struggled at home of late, recording only one win in their last five, losing three of those matches. William Hill price them as favourites at 7/5 (2.40) to take three points on Monday.

In contract to Hacken, AIK have been in fantastic form in recent weeks. Alm’s men are unbeaten in their last eight matches, winning six of them, which has seen their rise in the league. With just under half the season to play, these are the matches AIK need to win to keep up with Helsingborg and Malmo. William Hill price them at 2/1 (3.00) to win the match. The same firm prices the draw at 11/5 (3.20).

When you take into consideration AIK’s recent form, especially away from home where they have won their last four in a row, the price of 2/1 (3.00) is a fantastic bet. Hacken have struggled at home of late and with AIK disposing of Hacken 2-0 at the start of the month, this outright result cannot be ignored.
