Start vs Jerv – 1. Division
Saturday 27th May 15:00, Sparebanken Sør Arena
Match Preview and Betting Tips
Start could move to the top of 1. Division this weekend, but have to beat Jerv and hope that both Ranheim and Bodø/Glimt drop points in their game.
Visitors Jerv currently sit in the relegation zone with 9 league games played, with all of their six points arriving in the form of draws. They might well be unbeaten in the last six league and cup games, but Jerv are yet to win a single league game so far.
Start have been rather hit and miss during their last six matches, picking up three wins and three defeats, including a shock NM Cupen defeat against Flekkerøy.
Its still early days in 1. Division, but the difference between these two clubs so far has been their goal scoring ability. Hosts Start have the likes of Vorthoren, Antwi, and Børufsen on more than, or double the amount of league goals as Jerv’s top scorers.
With all that in mind I’m backing a home win with both teams to score tomorrow, and for Vorthoren to score the first goal of the game.

Start vs Jerv Stats
These two sides have met 6 times since 2014, and so far its Start with a 50% win ratio that hold a 2 win lead in the head to head record.
When the pair locked horns back in March it was a pre-season friendly in which Start ran out 3-1 winners. While these games are often not recommended to go by, the way the season has panned out so far suggests a 3-1 final score in favour of the hosts wouldn’t be a bad bet.
The last league game between the teams arrived in 2015, where once again Start were 3-1 winners at home. Goals from Hollingen, Børufsen, and De John helped the home side to another win against Jerv.
Antwi scored the consolation goal for Jerv that day, and he now plays for Start, so what are the bets he scores against his former club tomorrow?
Start have W3-D2-L1 against Jerv
