Unlike most European football leagues, the Swedish top league, Allsvenskan’s new season has only started a week ago. After 3 rounds IFK Norrkoping are leading but there is still a lot to go. We checked the main favorites in the Swedish Allsvenskan winner odds who have a real chance to be champion at the end of the season.
In Sweden the football season normally runs between April and November due to the very tough winters. But the start date of the 2020 season has been delayed in Sweden as well and only started on the 14th of June. 16 teams are competing in the top league, playing 30 rounds in the season. Malmo are the most successful club in the country with 20 championship titles, while IFK Goteborg got 18, IFK Norrkoping 13 titles. Defending champions are another team though, Djurgardens IF which won their first title since 2005 last year.
Swedish Allsvenskan winner odds favor Malmo to get their next title
As we mentioned, Malmo FF are the most successful club in Sweden. It is not surprising that online sportsbooks in Sweden are predicting their victory at the end of the season. They have the odds of 2.50 to become champions. Last season the team finished second just one point behind Djurgardens in a very close race. Under the lead of new head coach, former Danish top player, Jon Dahl Tomasson, the club will surely try to claim back the title.
Only the champion qualifies to the Champions League which can be another motivation to fight for the title. Malmo finished as a runner up in the European Cup in the 1978/79 season as the only Nordic team. Their most recent top international result was qualifying to the group stages of the Champions League in 2015 and 2016. The team hasn’t started the new season perfectly, They have one win and 2 draws, being 4th at the moment. Still routine and their squad should help them to be in the top at the end.
Hammarby and Norrkoping are also mentioned in the favorites
Online gambling sites in Sweden are offering the odds of 3.75 at Bet365 Sportsbook for the victory of Hammarby. The club is based in Stockholm and is one of the oldest clubs in the country. Still it has only won the league once in 2001. After a fallback in the 2010s, they returned back to the top tier in 2015. Under manager Stefan Billborn first the club finished 4th in 2018 and in 3rd place last year. It also meant qualification for this season’s Europa League. The club has the highest average attendance in the Nordic countries, and the loudest fans who might support them later in the season.
The Swedish Allsvenskan winner odds also mention IFK Norrkoping with a chance to become champions. They have the odds of 5.00 to do so on bet365. Even though they only finished 5th last season, the team has achieved great results in the past. They won 13 championship titles, the last in 2015. And it looks like the club wants to be champions again. After their great start of this season with 3 wins out of 3 games they are currently leading the league.
