GamingZion delivers the best Norway vs Hungary betting tips you find online.
Norway will entertain Hungary on Thursday night in the first leg of their EURO 2016 qualifying playoff fixture at Ullevaal Stadium in Oslo. Norway finished third behind Italy and Croatia in Group H, making them eligible to participate in the playoffs. Hungary, playing in Group F, slightly missed the chance to qualify for the EURO 2016 directly after Turkey grabbed the best third-placed spot in the very last day of the qualification series by beating Iceland 1–0. This matchup will bring us some exciting Norway vs Hungary betting opportunities.
This will be a tight matchup
Though Norway have won their last three matches against Hungary, scoring 10 and conceding one goal only, a big-margin home win is not expected by internet betting pundits this time. Hungary is tough to beat in this qualifying series. They suffered two losses only, and the last time they were beaten by two or more goals was two years ago in their shambolic 8–1 defeat against Holland.
Look for a one-goal home win when browsing Norway vs Hungary betting markets, but you can also consider a draw. A 1–0 win for the landslag is priced at a cool 5.75 (19/4) by BetVictor, however a winning margin tip is closer to a safe bet, but still gets you great money.
Prediction: draw with Norway -1 for 3.40 (12/5) at BetVictor
Look for the upset in Norway vs Hungary betting markets!
The last time Hungary defeated Norway was back in 1981, 34 years ago, and the Magyars also won their previous four games against the Norsemen. The visitors have a list of forwards in excellent form – Krisztián Németh (Sporting Kansas City), Nemanja Nikolic (Legia Warszawa) Dániel Böde (Ferencváros) – who can help the válogatott to an upset victory in Oslo. Hungary also defeated Finland twice in the EURO 2016 qualifiers, a side that somewhat similar to Norway in characteristics.
A draw for 3.40 (12/5) is a more likely outcome according to experts of successful sports betting strategies, but BetVictor has the best odds for an away win in Norway vs Hungary betting markets provided by online sportsbooks in the EU.
Adventurous betting line: Hungary to win for 5.00 (4/1) at BetVictor
Player to watch: Martin Ødegaard
Though Norway national team coach Per-Mathias Høgmo keeps his cards close to his chest, the Real Madrid youth midfielder would probably start on the bench against Hungary. The 16-year-old was the youngest player in history to feature in a UEFA Euro qualifying match when he made his competitive debut for his country last year when he was only 15. It doesn’t happen very often that you can see a 16-year-old playing for his country in such an important game, and it can happen that the intelligent attacking midfielder would make the difference in Oslo against Hungary.
Player betting line: Ødegaard to score for 5.5 (9/2)
