Football Bet of the Day: Norwegian champs to shine again

Bodo Glimt manager Kjetil Knutsen
Kjetil Knutsen's Bodo Glimt are flying high again in Norway

We're heading to Norway, and Kein Hatchard is backing the league leaders to shine.


Bodo Glimt v Sandefjord
Wednesday 29 May, 18:00

Malmö got the win we wanted last night, but our pick Erik Botheim drew a blank. We'll hop across to Norway now, because the champions Bodo Glimt have made a another strong start to the Eliteserien season, and I fancy them to rack up a comfortable win against struggling Sandefjord.

Bodo have taken 23 points from their first 10 games, and are two points clear at the top of the table. Five of their ten games this term have seen them win by two goals or more, and it continues to be something of a mystery that coach Kjetil Knutsen hasn't yet been lured away to a club in a richer league.

Bodo Glimt have won three of their five home games in the league, and if you stretch further back, they have won nine of their last 11. Five of those nine wins were by a multiple-goal margin.

Sandefjord aren't having that level of success. They have collected just seven points from their nine games, and they have lost their last three matches. They haven't managed to keep a single clean sheet this season.

I'll back Bodo Glimt -1.5 on the Asian Handicap at 1.824/5, so we need them to win by two goals or more.
