Starting this week, there’ll be no football in all of Europe’s top five football leagues, save for the Serie A. Only the English Championship play-offs, the MLS and a few others, will be available to bet on.
Of these remaining few, one for you to look out for is Norway’s Eliteserien.
It’s not the most popular league around. However, if you want games to add to your bet slips in the coming days, here are 2 reasons why you should choose those games from Norway:
Goals Per Team
Bodo/Glimt is the top side in the league. And they’ve scored an average of four goals per game so far. That’s the perfect description of the goal fest that takes place in the league.
Molde, the team behind the log leaders, have scored 28 goals in nine matches. Even the team sitting at the bottom of the table, Aalesund, have scored 13 in 10 – an average of one goal per game.
As these teams are scoring, others are conceding too.

If you’re looking for defenses to bet against, one of such is Viking’s, a side that has conceded at least two goals per game. Aalesund’s average of three goals conceded per game is currently the league’s worst.
Goals Per Round
The league is already nine games old. With 16 teams, the league has entered the second half of the season. And the goals have not stopped pouring in!
In the 74 league games played so far, 15 of those have featured at least five goals scored. That’s one in every five games played. Scorelines like 3-2, Bodo/Glimt’s 1-6 win over Aalesund, Molde’s 4-1 win over Stabaek and Odd’s 5-0 win over Start are regular features.
Games rarely finish without goals in this part of the world.
For context, only five of those 74 games played have finished in a goalless draw. That’s an average of less than one goalless draw per round.
Another goal trend common to each round is how both teams score in games. Each round sees an average of four to five of its games finishing with both sides finding the back of the net.
Another regular feature of each round is goals scored in the first half.
As available games in Europe dry up with a reawakening in Asia and America, you need an alternative like Norway’s Eliteserien. There may not be a clear home advantage, with rounds sometimes seeing six home wins in a round (Round 8) or five away wins (like in the first round of the season).
However, the players have not stopped scoring the goals. And with the league heading towards the end, you can expect that the goal-scoring trend will continue, or even get bigger!
