Roar Hansen’s men finished sixth in the Allsvenskan last season, a position they are more than likely to better this term.
Di Roe face a Halmstad side deep in trouble. Jens Gustafsson’s men have only secured 13 points in 15 matches, which leaves them on the verge of the relegation places, level on points with Oster in 14th and Brommopojkarna in 15th.
Helsingborg are in fantastic form away from home of late, unbeaten in their last eight matches. Hansen’s men have been tested on their travels in recent weeks, drawing with the likes of Malmo and Kalmar.
This evening should be a straight forward task for Di Roe, therefore, but William Hill’s price of 7/10 (1.70) is a tad short.
Halmstad desperately need to find a result having only won once at home in their last six, losing last time out against an average Hacken side 2-0.
HBK recorded a tight, but vital win at the start of the month against bottom-of-the-league Syrianska and will need to build on that victory. William Hill price them at 19/5 (4.80) to take three points tonight. The same firm price the draw at 14/5 (3.80).
With Helsingborg a little too short to back, a bet that stands out is under 2.5 goals at even money (2.00). Despite Helsingborg being the top scorers in the league, they have also got the best defence, conceding only 11 goals.
Hansen’s men have kept it tight away from home, however, with the unders bet paying out in five of their last six away matches. When you consider this bet would have also paid out in five of Halmstad’s last six home games, it’s certainly worth investing in.
