Hacken can pile further pressure on Halmstad in their battle against relegation with a win at Rambergsvallen tomorrow night.
The home side are seen as clear favourites to secure victory over HBK, with bwin offering odds of 11/20 on a home win.
By way of contrast, the visitors are priced as 9/2 outsiders, while the draw is seen as a 29/10 shot.
A look at previous encounters between the sides shows that a draw may be the best the away side can hope for.
In the last five encounters, there have been two draws, while the last three have all ended with Hacken emerging victorious.
As such, a number of football betting enthusiasts could be tempted to back a final score in the game.
The last time the two sides met, Hacken secured a 2-0 victory, which followed a 2-1 win and a 4-0 rout. The previous games both ended in a 2-2 stalemate.
Fans hoping that the away side can excel in damage limitation and secure another draw, which would be their third successive in the league, can back a 2-2 scoreline at 33/2.
However, the more sensible money looks likely to be placed on a home win and the 18/1 odds on another 4-0 success could attract a lot of attention, especially as with 21 goals, Hacken are the most prolific side in Sweden’s top flight so far this term.
That said, Hacken have had a topsy-turvy season of late, winning just one of their last five outings.
As such, a more conservative scoreline could be on the horizon, which may push punters in the direction of the 13/2-priced 2-0 home win or the 2-1 result, which is priced at 31/4.
There are a number of reasons for the short odds on a Hacken win, but chiefly that tomorrow’s opponents have not won any of their last five games and that Hacken front man Mathias Ranegie is in devastating form.
The Swedish international has eleven goals from 12 games so far this term, helping his side to a 1.75 goals per game average.
