After a successful winning 8.14 odds acca last week, I am back again with a National League four-fold that pays 10.94- I'm getting greedy I know!
Firstly, we will be starting in London as Wealdstone host Oldham Athletic at Grosvenor Vale.
On paper, this game is a bit of a mismatch. A semi-professional club that have never played in the Football League against a former Premier League side However, thanks to the impeccable work of Stuart Maynard, Wealdstone continues to punch above their weight.
Last season, Maynard guided the Stones to an unprecedented 13th-place finish, ending the season closer to the playoffs than the relegation zone. The fine work has continued this season, with Wealdstone sitting in 13th place, just three points off Altrincham in the playoffs. A run of three games without a win was put to an end after an impressive 1-0 win over promotion-chasing Woking. However, this Saturday, they face an inform Oldham Athletic.
Oldham were billed as the second favourite for the title in the summer, due to an impressive end to last season and a spending spree in the summer that saw them bring in talent such as James Norwood, who scored 12 goals in League 1 last season. However, this campaign has not gotten off to the start the Latics would've hoped for. David Unsworth was sacked after nine games after recording just one win.
Since his departure, Oldham have won three games in a row under the stewardship of caretaker managers Steve Thompson and Neal Redfearn. In the 2-0, 4-0, and 1-2 wins over York, Oxford City, and Kidderminster, respectively, the Latics have looked very strong and much more like a top-2 side in the division.
Due to the strength Oldham possess in the squad and the momentum they currently have, the first selection is Oldham to win.
Selection: Oldham to win - 2.0
The next selection is a very, very boring one, as Halifax hosts Eastleigh.
Sitting in 11th, Halifax have had a steady start to the season, winning three, drawing six, and losing three of their opening 12 games. Chris Millington's side have been solid defensively, boasting the joint-best defensive record in the National League. However, they have also lacked potency in attack, with only relegation-threatened Kidderminster and Maidenhead having worse attacks. Of their six home games, all six have seen under 2.5 goals. In fact, 10 of their 12 games have seen under 2.5 goals, with the exception of a 3-2 loss to Chesterfield (who have seen over 2.5 goals in 10/12) and the 2-1 win at Oldham.
The visitors, Eastleigh, have recently appointed Richard Hill as their first team boss after seven games in temporary charge. The Spitfires sit in 15th with three wins, five draws, and four losses in 12 games. Of their six away games, only one has seen over 2.5 goals—the 2-1 loss at AFC Fylde, who have seen 11/12 games land over 2.5.
With 100% and 83% records for this bet, the next selection is under 2.5 goals.
Selection: Under 2.5 goals - 1.70
A relegation vs promotion clash in Berkshire as Maidenhead welcome Chesterfield to York Road
After performing miracles at the semi-pro club for numerous years, Alan Devonshire may be getting worried about his side's chances of survival, with Maidenhead lingering in the relegation zone. The Magpies are without a win in eight, losing their last five games and failing to score in their last four games. With Chesterfield, Oldham, Rochdale, and Barnet in the next four, things aren't looking good for Maidenhead. Last season, they stayed up by two points, with the third worst attacking record in the league. This season, they have only scored seven; only Kidderminster has scored less.
Chesterfield were pre-season favourites for the title and are rightfully showing why. The Spirites are the current league leaders, five clear of Solihull Moors and Barnet. They are the league top scorers with 31 goals in 12 games and have won five out of six away games. Paul Cook's side have won seven games in a row, scoring at least two in six of these and at least three in five. Despite this, Ryan Colclough and Will Grigg are their top scorers, with five each—six away from league top scorer Marcus Dinanga. This shows the quality of attack that Paul Cook has in abundance and is a major reason they look on course for a return to the football league.
Selection- Chesterfield win - 1.53
The final game under the microscope comes from Aggborough, where bottom of the table, Kidderminster host third-place Barnet.
A run of six wins and five clean sheets in a row saw the Harries sneak into the National League North playoffs last season by one point. Shock wins away at Alfreton (0-1), Kings Lynn (1-4), and Brackley (0-2) saw Kidderminster promoted to the National League.
Since then, however, Russell Penn's side have struggled, scoring only six goals and recording only one win. With seven points, Kidderminster sits rock bottom in the league. They have also lost their last four and are in dire straits. Facing high-flying Barnet is not ideal.
After losing in the play-off quarterfinals to rivals Boreham Wood, Barnet have started this campaign impressively, losing only twice so far. With 25 goals scored, Dean Brennan's side have the third best attacking record in the league, behind Gateshead and Chesterfield who have 31 apiece. In Nicke Kabamba, the Bees have the leagues second top scorer with nine goals, while centre back Danny Collinge has chipped in with five goals.
With the contrasting form of both teams, it is hard to ignore Barnet's price to win.
Selection: Barnet to win - 2.1
