Football Bet of the Day: Backing Orebro's a no-no

Swedish football fans
We're kicking off the week in Sweden

We're looking for a third straight week of profit on Football Bet of the Day, and Kevin Hatchard's taking us to Sweden.

"Orebro have only scored in one of their away games, and they have only managed five league goals overall."

Back Djurgardens to win and Under 3.5 Goals at 2.01/1

Rock-bottom visitors to slip again

Djurgardens v Orebro
Monday 05 July, 18:00

There was a twist in the title race on Sunday in Norway, as Molde went down 1-0 at Sarpsborg. That did our Tobias no good, as he was on the Molde train, but thankfully he still made a profit for the week.

We'll wave to him as we fly overhead, because we're landing in Sweden to kick off our week. Djurgardens are taking on struggling Orebro, and there's reason to believe the hosts can pick up a straightforward win.

Orebro finished a respectable seventh last term, but they are finding this campaign a lot tougher so far. Vitor Gazimba's men have taken just seven points from their eight games, and they are bottom of the 16-team division. They have lost three of their four matches on the road, and haven't scored in any of those defeats. Orebro have only scored five goals in the league so far.

Djurgardens are just three points behind the leaders Malmo, and they have won five of their eight games so far. They have kept clean sheets in four of their last five matches at the Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, and it's worth noting for our purposes that just three of their eight games have featured four goals or more.

Djurgardens should have enough quality to win this, and with Orebro struggling in front of goal, I'm happy to double up a home win with an Under 3.5 Goals bet at 2.01/1 on the Sportsbook. That gives us the 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 and 3-0 wins, and that's an enticing spread of results.
