Sarpsborg 08 vs Molde – Free Betting Tips & Predictions

Sarpsborg 08 have lost two league tussles on the bounce ahead of their latest Eliteserien test against Molde on Thursday. Read our top three predictions for this week’s fixture below.

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Molde Draw no Bet

With four straight victories behind in league and cup, Molde carry plenty of momentum with them into Thursday’s clash with Sarpsborg and the visitors could be worth considering in the draw no bet stakes. Molde have already bested their hosts this term, recording a 4-2 victory over Sarpsborg in an NM Cupen contest back in March. With strong current form pushing them on, Molde can continue their surge at Sarpsborg’s expense this week.

Both Teams to Score

Encounters between Sarpsborg and Molde have been goal-filled in recent seasons and fixtures involving the clubs rarely produce clean sheets. In fact, both teams have got in on the act in eight of the last 10 tussles between the sides since 2017 and history suggests we should expect BTTS to land again this week. Both teams have notched in two of Sarpsborg’s last three home matches and that pattern should continue on Thursday.

Magnus Grødem to Score Anytime

Molde midfielder Magnus Grødem looks like he will play a more prominent role this season compared to last and the 23-year-old has already doubled his goal tally from 2021 this year. Grødem has found the net in two of his last three appearances for Molde and his ability to chip in from deep marks him out as one to watch in the anytime goalscorer stakes again on Thursday.

Defender Eirik Wichne is Sarpsborg’s only reported injury worry ahead of Thursday’s game. Head Coach Stefan Billborn watched his team come unstuck in surprising fashion at home to Aalesund at the weekend and Sarpsborg have now lost a disappointing three of their opening seven matches of the new Eliteserien campaign.


Molde could be without Ola Brynhildsen, Martin Ellingsen, Bjorn Sigurdarson and Kristoffer Haraldseid, while Eirik Ulland Anderson faces an extended period out of the team with an ACL injury. Molde edged out Kristiansund 2-1 last time out and moved up to third place in the Eliteserien as a result.
