Date & Time: NaN/NaN/NaN, Invalid Date
Latest Odds: VAL -0.75 Total: 3

It’s top-meets-bottom in the Pepsideild on Wednesday, when Vestmannaeyjar will play host to league leaders Valur. Vestmannaeyjar have been really inconsistent so far in the season, while Valur have actually been pretty solid.

Vestmannaeyjar (2-4-2) almost grabbed some points from their trip to Vikingur Reykjavik on Saturday, but ended up leaving empty-handed. They were left chasing the score at the 23rd minute of that match, but managed to pull even at the start of the second half. Their joy didn’t last for long as their opponents scored the winning goal just four minutes later for the final 1-2. Vestmannaeyjar are now sitting at the 10th spot of the league table with 8 points, with an even distribution of Over/Under 2.5 Goals in their matches (4/4). They are undefeated at home so far (1-0-2), and they might pull an upset here.
On the other hand, Valur (4-1-3) are coming into this match after a really strong 1-3 win at home against Akureyri. They were actually equalized at the 35th minute, but they took the lead once again before the first half was over. They eventually scored another goal at the stoppage time for the final 1-3. Valur have been really good so far in the season, as they are still sitting at the top of the Pepsideild with 15 points. They have had mixed results on the road (1-1-1), where they have kept two clean sheets.

Odds Table

Valur have dominated this match-up over the past few years, having lost just once to Vestmannaeyjar since 2014 (8-1-3). However, they have really struggled to get results in this venue over the years (3-8-5). Even if Valur win here, it won’t be by much, so I am tempted to go with the home handicap here. Moreover, the two teams have traditionally produced high-scoring matches, so the Over 3 Goals might also be a good idea.
