Halifax Win & Over 1.5 Goals @ 1.91

What a start Halifax have made this season, they surprisingly currently sit top of the table, but have looked more than their value for being there. With 10 wins out of a possible 15, they really have been putting teams to the sword. They come up against a struggling Chorley side, who currently sit next to last and can’t seem to buy a win.

Considering the gulf in league position and how each team’s form has gone, I really can’t believe you’re getting 1.91 for Halifax to Win & Over 1.5 goals. That looks an incredible price to me and one I’m more than happy to get behind. They’ve only dropped points to high flying Yeovil and a very solid Harrogate outfit. They’ll be more than looking to keep their hands-on top spot and they’ll be coming into this one full of confidence and ready to ease past Chorley.

Yeovil Win @ 1.83

A few of my pieces recently have really got behind Yeovil to great prevail until last week’s 93rd minute loss to Hartlepool. Their seven-match winning streak did com to an end away at Hartlepool on the weekend, but what an opportunity to really stamp your promotion intent than win at home convincingly against promotion rivals Woking.

Woking themselves have seemed to fall off after a great start to the season. They’re currently winless in their last seven and seemingly looking lost near the top of the league. This sort of form seems very common across the National League where teams will be on fantastic runs and suddenly hit a horrible rut, just like Woking are now. For these reasons, getting Yeovil to Win @ 1.83 at Huish Park looks a great price to me considering the current form and situation/confidence around the teams.

Barrow vs Borehamwood – Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.95

Barrow have been fantastic to me so far this season when it comes to goals and I’m backing more of the same on Tuesday night. With 5 of their last 6 matches resulting in Over 2.5 Goals, I really can’t get my head around why it’s priced up just below evens. Their goals per match average is currently sitting at 3 goals a match and after an impressive six victories on the bounce, including a win last week over then league leaders Bromley, their confidence will be sky high.

Borehamwood, in a similar vein have been good for goals this season, with an attack which has fired in 23 goals in the 15 matches so far. They’ll be causing Barrow more than enough problems at the back and given the impressive offences that both teams possess, this match screams out goals to me.

Ebbsfleet vs Torquay – Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.80

Torquay just like Barrow have been a phenomenal team to get behind for goals in the National League, with them currently averaging 3.13 goals per match, they really are showing both their attacking intent and defensive frailties. They come up against bottom of the table Ebbsfleet, who’ve really had a tough season so far, but with a fairly strong attack and a shocking defence they make great value for an Overs goals bet.

It did come as a surprise to me that the odds on this were lower than that in the Barrow match, but I’m still more than happy to get behind this one @ 1.80. Both teams have been good in their last five matches for goals, with both teams having 3/5 matches landing. The combination of two fluid attacks coming up against very shaky defences especially with Ebbsfleet as the venue, this one should be a shoe in for Over 2.5 Goals.

AFC Fylde vs Chesterfield – Over 2.5 Goals @ 1.95

The National League really is the gift that keeps on giving, with another cracking match-up between two of the leagues big hitters when it comes to goals. The ever-exciting Fylde host struggling Chesterfield in what should prove to be another goal filled thriller.

Both teams have impressed on the averages so far this season, with Chesterfield averaging 3 goals per match and AFC Fylde averaging an even more impressive 3.18, this one really does shout goals. Looking at the recent form would also point you in the direction of goals, with both teams having 3 of their last 4 matches having Over 2.5 Goals.

How this is priced up as high as 1.95 is beyond me yet again, the bookies haven’t seemed to click onto this trend with certain teams in this league. The likes of Fylde, Torquay & Barrow keep getting overlooked for their goal threat despite their very impressive figures so far this season.
