Östersunds FK vs Häcken 16:00 Jämtkraft Arena, Östersund
Odds 2.00 – 3.30 – 3.20 – Bet NOW at RedKings

This is a battle for the Europa League positions. Östersunds FK is 6th with 39 points and Häcken is two points ahead of them as 4th.

Östersunds FK is the cinderella team of Europe having defied all the odds and first gotting themselves into the Europa League group stages by defeating Galatasaray and PAOK but then also leading the group now by winning their opening two matches. Now they are still in the hunt for good positions in the Allsvenskan. They lost to Kalmar in the last round but in the previous four matches they had earned 10 points. They are a very difficult team to beat their own artificial turf. They have lost only once at home this season. Their current home record is 6-5-1.
Häcken started the season poorly but were lately on a 9-game unbeaten run which abruptly came to and end in great fashion. They have now lost their last two matches with a 2-10 goal difference. Norrköping and AIK are good teams but considering that before those games Häcken had the best defensive record with only 16 goals conceded in 23 games, those results were shocking. They have one of the better away records as they have lost only twice this season. Their current away record is 5-5-2.
The teams have met twice this season and in both the Cup and in the League, Östersunds FK has won both matches.
Prediction:
Under 2.75 goals is our main pick.

GIF Sundsvall vs Djurgården 16:00 Norrporten Arena, Sundsvall
Odds 4.75 – 3.60 – 1.57 – Bet NOW at RedKings

GIF Sundsvall is 13th with 27 points and Djurgården is 2nd with 45 points.

Sundsvall struggled at the start of the season but have finally gotten our of first gear. They are unbeaten in their last 5 matches (3W 2D) and have climbed out of immediate trouble but are still safe only with a 3 points difference to Jönköpings Södra. They are 3-4-5 at home this season.

Djurgården is also on their own undefeated run as they have not lost in 7 games (4W 3D). This good form has moved them to 2nd position in the standings. They are 9 points behind Malmö so the title almost gone but a Europa League qualifying place is still a good target for them. They are in good form especially away from home as they have not lost in their last 5 away games (3W 2D).

Djurgården won the first match in Stockholm 2-1.

Prediction:
Away win. For bettors who have a bit more value, you can put Djurgården to win with both teams to score.

Malmö FF vs Halmstad 16:00 Swedbank Stadion, Malmö
Odds 1.10 – 7.00 – 15.00 – Bet NOW at RedKings

Malmö FF tops the table with 54 points and Halmstad is bottom of the table with 17 points.

The title looks like it is going to Malmö again as they have a 9 point gap at the top. They are the best home team in the Allsvenskan with a 9-2-1 record. They are 4-1-0 in their last 5 home games with an amazing 20-2 goal difference.

Halmstad is bottom of the league and they are 7 points from the relegation play-off spot with only 5 rounds to go. It looks like Halmstad is going back to the Superettan. They are the only Allsvenskan team that has not won an away game. Their away record this season is 0-4-8.

Malmö FF won the first match 0-3 at Halmstad this season.

Prediction:
Malmö FF to win by at least 3 goals.

Hammarby vs Norrköping 18:30 Tele2 Arena, Stockholm
Odds 2.12 – 3.40 – 2.80 – Bet NOW at RedKings

Hammarby is 7th with 34 points and Norrköping is 5th with 40 points.

Hammarby has been a very difficult team to beat at the Tele2 Arena this season as they have lost only once. Their problem has been that too many games have ended in a draw at home. Their home record is 5-6-1 at the moment. Their biggest issue at home has been that they concede too many goals. They have only managed to keep two clean sheets but those were both in April. Since then them and their opponent has scored in each game.

IFK Norrköping has had a bit of a rollercoaster season. They can win against anyone and then follow it up with a loss. They have not been able to put in good performances consistently. In their last five matches they are 2-1-2. Overall on the road they are 5-2-5.

Norrköping won the first match 2-1 at home this season.

Prediction:
Both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.

AIK vs Elfsborg 18:30 Friends Arena, Stockholm
Odds 2.26 – 3.10 – 2.80 – Bet NOW at RedKings

AIK is 3rd with 44 points and Elfsborg is 10th with 32 points.

AIK is finding form after an inconsistent early season but still they play too many draws. They are unbeaten in their last 7 matches with 3 wins and 4 draws. Surprisingly their best form has happened on the road as at home at the Friends Arena, they are 4-5-3 this season. With a bit better home form, they could have challenged Malmö for the title.

Elfsborg is not in good form as they have not won in 4 games and because of this their head coach lost his job during the week. They have played ok at home but on the road they are 2-5-5 this season. Their biggest problem has been that they concede too many goals. They are on top of the over/under table as 19 of their 25 games have gone over 2.5 goals.

AIK won the first match 1-2 at Borås this season. The last time Elfsborg won in Stockholm against AIK was in 2011. AIK has won the last 4 home games vs Elfsborg.

Prediction:
AIK to win and both teams to score.

Örebro vs Kalmar 18:30 Behrn Arena, Örebro
Odds 2.08 – 3.40 – 2.90 – Bet NOW at RedKings

Örebro is 9th with 33 points. Kalmar is 12th with 29 points.

Örebro never fails to entertain you. There are always goals in their games and they either lose or win. You never know with them. In their last 5 games, there has been 23 goals scored so almost 5 goals per game. When they are on, they can beat anyone but unfortunately for them, they are not that on too often. They are 6-2-4 at home this season.

Kalmar started the season poorly but they have improved lately. They are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games losing only to leaders Malmö FF. They are 2-3-7 on the road this season but in their last 5 away matches they are 2-2-1.

Örebro won the first match in Kalmar 0-1 this season.

Prediction:
Double chance Kalmar X2.

Updated before Round 25.
