Football Bet of the Day: Strong chance of goals in Stromsgodset

Tobias Gourlay finishes the week in Norway, where Stabaek look well placed to deliver a high scorer in Stromsgodset this evening

Stromsgodset v Stabaek
Sunday 19:00

In Norway yesterday, Sarpsborg and Bodo Glimt were a bit too free and easy with the goals. They drew 2-2 to leave us on the wrong side of the goals line.

For our final bet of the day, we’re sticking in Norway, where a similar result today would be just perfect. Second-bottom Stabaek (W1-D3-L6) are headed to 11th-placed Stromsgodset. Stabaek are averaging four match goals per away game this term (20 in five) and we fancy they can get to Over 3.5 Goals again today.

Nineteen of Stromsgodset’s last 30 league games at Marienlyst Stadion have delivered Over 2.5 Goals. And when they’ve got over that line, they’ve tend to go Over 3.5 Goals too: 15 of the 30 have delivered Over 3.5 Goals.

Stabaek won this fixture 4-0 last season. The Blues have also produced Over 3.5 Goals in three of their last four road trips anywhere. Indeed, just over half of their away games since mid-2019 have got to Over 3.5 Goals (15/29) so there are trends on both sides to suggest the price on that outcome today is too generous to ignore.4
