The Somerset club have been in imperious form of recent and I’m expecting that to continue in a similar fashion. They make the long journey to Hartlepool with seven wins on the bounce and a meteoric rise into the top 3 of the National League. Coming down from League Two looks like it was the kick up the backside that Yeovil needed, after an early season jitter, they’ve really shown their prowess and class recently.
On the flipside, Hartlepool can’t buy a win of recent, with no wins and just 3 points out of a possible 15 in their last five, I can’t see this changing any time soon. The only thing that worried me was their away travels, but Yeovil have proved they’re more than capable on the road after wins against Solihull Moors & Halifax in September.
I really did like the straight win in this one @ 2.62, but I’ve opted for the Draw No Bet selection for some added security. The men from Huish Park are on fire and they’re good money to make it 8 wins on the bounce.
I just couldn’t believe the price on this one, how Halifax aren’t favourites in this one I’ll never know. They currently sit second in the table, just a point behind Bromley after leading for periods over the summer. They are 2.62 for the win and with their very solid away record, I’m happy getting behind them with the Draw No Bet security @ 1.83.
It’s not just Halifax’s good start but also Maidenhead’s shaky form, winless in six matches and seemingly struggling to keep a clean sheet. The confidence around Maidenhead must be very low at the moment and the complete polar opposite for Halifax, who are currently flying.
Goals look the order of the day as league leaders Bromley host a very impressive Barrow team. Bromley currently average 2.78 goals with their opposition an impressive 3 goals a match. Barrow look in free scoring form of recent, scoring 13 in their last 5 matches and I’m expecting them to cause Bromley plenty of problems.
Bromley themselves have been very impressive in front of goal especially at home, scoring on average 2 goals per match and I’m expecting more of the same. With both teams firing on all cylinders and defences looking shaky, goals should come naturally and I’m happy getting behind Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.85.
Another clash between two of their league’s top scorers as Torquay host Fylde and this one really speaks for itself. Both team’s matches have averaged over 3.2 goals this season and I’m expecting more of the same when the two clash in Devon on Saturday. With Jamie Reid on top form for Torquay and the ever-impressive Danny Rowe in the Fylde team, I’m expecting plenty of goals.
This is my lowest odds pick of the week and I’m surprised they aren’t lower; Fylde matches have been crazy for goals on the road. With their defensive frailties letting down their impressive attack on multiple occasions this season. You can get Over 2.5 Goals & BTTS @ 1.90, this looks a great price, considering the problems they’ll cause for each other.
I just couldn’t resist the televised evening kick off this weekend, Harrogate host a very poor Ebbsfleet team and I’m more than expecting them to get all three points. With Harrogate looking very solid at home against the mid-lower placed sides in the league, I’m expecting a routine victory under the lights.
On the back of two wins, one an impressive one away at Halifax, Harrogate look to have turned a leaf this season and will be looking to make it three on the bounce. Given a sixth placed finish last season, you’d be hoping their form would continue to improve.
