After a perfect start to the week, Kevin Hatchard's looking for more success in the Norwegian top flight.
"Bodo Glimt are on great form, and are scoring freely away from home, while Kristiansund have hit a sticky patch."

Visitors to go top of the table
Kristiansund v Bodo Glimt
Wednesday 14 August, 18:00
Amsterdam is known as a place where you can have fun, and we certainly did last night. Ajax edged out PAOK 3-2, and our BTTS bet landed by half time. We're heading to Norway now, as title contenders Bodo Glimt make the trip to face Kristiansund.
Bodo Glimt may sound like a minor character in Lord of the Rings, but the club has actually done incredibly well this season. They finished eleventh last term, and have never won the league, but they are surprise challengers at the top. They are only a point behind the leaders Molde, and a win this evening would put them two points clear at the top.
Bodo Glimt are in great form, having won six of their last seven league games, scoring 19 goals in the process. On the road, they have won three of their last four matches. They have only failed to score once in their last 11 outings.
Kristiansund have only lost once at home in the league, but their form is weak. They have won just one of their last seven Eliteserien matches, a 5-2 home victory over Lillestrom. In last season's clashes with Bodo Glimt, Kristiansund lost 3-0 away and drew 1-1 at home.
The visitors can be backed Draw No Bet at 1.8810/11, and I think that given the teams' current form, that's a sensible play.
