The new Norwegian football season has started only in June instead of April but it’s on its way now. After 6 rounds Bodo/Glimt are leading ahead of defending champions Molde. In the Eliteserien 2020 betting predictions these teams are also the main favorites, but let’s see if anyone else can have a say in the title.
16 teams are playing in the top Norwegian football league called Eliteserien. Rosenborg are the most successful team with 26 championship titles so far, but 15 other clubs have also won the league before. Molde are the defending champions after winning their fourt title last year. The season in Norway runs in different time periods than in other parts of Europe due to the cold winters. Usually between March and December. But this year the start of the new season has been postponed to June. So teams and fans had to wait almost half a year to play and watch football again. But now the league is in full power, with a new round every 3 days.
Eliteserien 2020 betting predictions favor defending champions
Online sportsbooks in Norway are giving the smallest odds for another title of defending champions Molde. They have the odds of 1.44 at Bet365 Sportsbook to win again. The team has started the season well, with 5 wins and 1 draw. They managed to beat big rival Rosenborg at home and are currently in 2nd place. Molde are one of the most successful Norwegian teams, especially in the last few years. They won the championship four times so far and finished second nine more times.
The former team of current Manchest United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is led by Erling Moe since the end of 2018. The squad includes Nigerian striker Leke James, who scored 17 goals last season. And one of the best midfielders in the league, Eirik Hestad who had the most assists in the previous season.
Biggest rivals of Molde
Eliteserien 2020 betting predictions mention the current league leader, Bodo/Glimt as another favorite. Their odds to become champion is 4.00 at Bet365 Sportsbook. The team hasn’t won the championship yet, but finished as a runner-up four occasions including last season. And they seem to have a great chance of winning now, after their superb start with six victories out of six games. Bodo also defeated Rosenborg away in a game full of goals. They will play against Molde in the 10th round, at the end of the month.
The most famous Norwegian team, Rosenborg seemed to be in trouble. Online gambling sites in Norway are still giving them the odds of 9.00 at Bet365 Sportsbook to win at the end. But they will need a big improvement as they are only in 7th place at the moment with 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 defeats. No wonder their coach, Eirik Horneland was sacked last month, and has been replaced by Trond Henriksen as an interim coach. The team might be on a good route now, after getting two away wins and a draw at home in their last three games. But surely fans are expecting more from the team which has won 26 titles so far and got to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the 1996/97 season.
