Pick: Kristiansund +1.5 (Asian Handicap)

(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 23 June 2022)

Preview: Every team has had cause for celebration in this season of Norway’s Eliteserien. All, that is, except Kristiansund who make their way to Trondheim – where they have never beaten opponents Rosenborg in five previous top-flight meetings – seeking to halt an eight-game barren run to start the season.

Rosenborg – Norway’s record champs still in decline?

Having finished top four seasons running from 2015 to 2018, Norway’s record champions are enduring a lean period with finishes of 3rd, 4th and 5th since lifting the last of their 25 league titles. Unfortunately, a return to the good times doesn’t appear imminent either. Kjetil Rekdal’s side are already well adrift of leaders Lillestrom, whose recent 3-1 victory over Rosenborg left the latter 13 points back in eighth.

That result was another dent to an already underwhelming win ratio, marking a seventh winless Eliteserien outing in ten (W3 D5 L2) for ‘The Troll Children’. That win percentage does, however, climb to 50% when Rosenborg are on hosting duties, recording two wins and two draws at Lerkendal Stadion. Although the recent 3-3 draw there with Haugesund marked a third league game in six conceding exactly three goals.

Key Stat: All three Rosenborg Eliteserien victories in 2022 have been ‘to nil’, two of which were as hosts: 1-0 vs Odd, 3-0 vs Sandefjord.


Both Teams to Score – NO



Kristiansund – Owls struggling to get off the ground?

Embarking on their sixth successive season at this level, having secured a respectable sixth place finish last time around, Kristiansund seemingly have it all to do if they are to extend their Eliteserien stay in 2023. Head coach Christian Michelsen oversaw the club’s promotion back in 2017 and has been in charge of first-team affairs since 2014, but his influence in this team has been limited so far this season.

Last weekend’s 2-0 home loss to Eliteserien holders Bodo/Glimt was more of the same for Michelsen and his beleaguered team. A seventh league defeat in eight, with a 2-2 draw at home to newly-promoted Jerv the only reprieve in a so far grim campaign. Meanwhile, five of their seven defeats have been to nil, scoring once across four away matches – a last-gasp consolation last time out on their travels versus Molde.

Key Stat: Kristiansund are the last team from Norway’s top division yet to earn their first win of the 2022 season (D1 L7). They are on a four-match losing run, conceding at least twice in each of their past five matches and in six of eight overall.

Rosenborg Vs Kristiansund Betting Advice

For a team that has won three of ten league games so far, Rosenborg are certainly short enough, at 4/11, to earn their fourth during Saturday evening’s home encounter versus bottom of the table Kristiansund. The latter have toiled from the moment the season got underway in April, collecting one point from their first eight fixtures – and none from four away from home – to leave them six points adrift of their nearest rival.


Rosenborg Vs Kristiansund – Key Facts:

  • Both Teams to Score NO is our side selection. This bet has returned a winner in five of ten Rosenborg Eliteserien matches this season, and in five of eight (62%) for Kristiansund.
  • Kristiansund are without an away win versus Rosenborg since their promotion to Norway’s top division in 2017, losing three. They are, however, unbeaten in four of the last five league meetings home and away (W1 D3 L1).
  • Rosenborg have 14 points after 10 league games (W3 D5 L2), sitting 8th of 16 teams. Kristiansund occupy that 16th and final spot after taking one point from their eight matches so far.


Perhaps I am dicing with fire a little, but I am inclined to support the visitors with the benefit of the Asian handicap. Rosenborg are W2 D2 at home thus far but only beaten one opponent (Sandefjord 3-0) in convincing fashion. Kristiansund are L4 on the road. However they were beaten by a solitary strike in all but one and managed either a draw or a one-goal margin loss in all four prior visits to Trondheim (D2 L2).
