Football Bet of the Day: Viking invasion to fall flat

An Icelandic football pitch
We're hoping the soccer sunshine will break through the cloud in Iceland

We're heading to Iceland, and Kev believes hosts Keflavik will win in style.

"Keflavik have won three of their last four home games, and have scored 12 goals along the way."

Back Keflavik/Over 2.5 Goals double at 1.910/11 on the Sportsbook

Fire to melt the ice

Keflavik v Vikingur Olafsvik
Wednesday 19 August, 19:00

For the second game running, Sweden gave us a dose of frustration as we were left a goal short. The wonderfully-named Adam Bergmark-Wiberg scored twice in the first 40 minutes for Orgryte, but the scoreline stubbornly remained at 2-0, nixing our Over 2.5 Goals bet.

We'll abandon the country, at least for now, and head to Iceland. Second-tier leaders Keflavik are up against Vikingur Olafsvik, and I'm anticipating a lively win for the home side.

Keflavik have claimed 20 points from their first nine matches. Their home form has been strong, with three wins from four games, and 12 goals across that quartet of outings at the Nettovollurin. All four of their home matches have seen an Over 2.5 Goals bet land.

Vikingur have lost six of their nine matches, and are leaking goals at an average of just above two per game. They have lost three of their last four, and all four of those matches featured at least three goals. Seven of Vikingur's nine league games have seen an Over 2.5 Goals bet land.

I'll back Keflavik to win and there to be at least three goals by using the Sportsbook's Same Game Multi to get combined odds of 1.910/11.
