Stord TIL vs Kolstad by Bulan20
Round 11 in Norwegian league with Stord hosting Kolstad.
Went with Kolstad one time earlier when they won against Stavanger 24-21 (not 24-41 as was presented here) but didn´t cover the hcp-line. Will give them another try here against Stord.
Kolstad #4, 5-1-4 record
Stord #11, 1-0-9
Kolstad is still a solid team in defense but is a team that at times can struggle with scoring. Had a decent game against Bodo even though they lost 24-26. Liaba, Brandmo and Balstad was topscorers and had nice offensive games. Kolstad has performed decent on the road with 2 wins and 2 losses, with losses coming against Arendal and Elverum.
Stord have only won against other bottom team Viking Stavanger. They have done some good games since then but their squad is lacking in width and strength, especially in defense. Weak keeper and lacking in both speed and physic to get those necessary hits in.
Sure, table situation is misleading. It is not that big difference between these two teams. Big difference in consistency, Kolstad is often doing decent/good games while Stord more often play at a lower level and at times can get everything to work. Stord is now slight favouites, but although they have better team then in start of season they haven´t deserved to be favourites. I like the odds on the awayteam that should have a solid chance to get the points here. Kolstad to win is the prediction.
