    So starting from today Punters Lounge will be the only place where you will be able to see my Non-League previews. Saturday's selections had two winners including another winning Nap in Redditch. Over the next couple of nights I have 6 bets including two this evening. Bradford Park Avenue v Boston Starting off with two Monday night selections and I like the look of the home side here. Boston's away form has been horrendous so far. They have picked up just the 1 point and have conceded a huge 14 goals in their 5 away games so far, including 5 at Blyth on Saturday. Now Bradford have only won once at home so far this season, but after losing their first two home games they have picked up 5 points in their following 3. Looking at their form overall they are unbeaten in 6 games now drawing 3 and winning 3. Bradford should have won on Saturday as well as opponents Nuneaton went down to 10 men and they missed a penalty. The 36/25 with Marathon looks too big to me on a home win. Chelmsford v East Thurrock East Thurrock would be one of the smallest teams in the National League South, but they have had an incredible start to the season. They remain unbeaten having won 5 and drawn 4 so far this term. That means they are just 2 points behind their hosts this evening having played a game less. Chelmsford currently top the table and look set to at least reach the play-offs again having been beaten in the final last season by Ebbsfleet. They are obviously in very good form themselves, but they have drawn their last 3 matches all against teams in the bottom 8 of the league. Now this game should be much tougher than those and East Thurrock look a huge price at 9/2. I am however going to take them in the draw no bet market at 59/20 with Marathon just have a little bit of security should they draw again given they have drawn 7 games between them. Barrow v Guiseley It is funny how the fixture list seems to throw fixtures like this as new Guiseley manager Paul Cox returns to Barrow not long after quitting the club. To be fair to Barrow they have been playing pretty well recently and did so again at Tranmere on Saturday only going down to a very late goal. They clearly deserve to be favourites, but I think Guiseley are a value play here. I thought there was instant improvement from them at the weekend when they drew 0-0 against Eastleigh and they should really have won the game. Now they have lost all 4 away games so far conceding 13 and scoring just 1, but I think they will be rising up the table shortly as I rate Cox as a manger and 5/1 (Marathon) is bigger than it should be. Dagenham & Redbridge v Sutton I think both these sides should have won at the weekend. Sutton had quite a few chances to see off Gateshead but in the end were held to a 1-1 draw. Dagenham lost their first game of the season at Hartlepool, but they had chances to get in front before that and as John Still said after the game they will play worse and win this season. Sutton's away form has been much better and they have won 3 of their 4 away games, but I just fancy with their injury list at the moment they will struggle to get much out of this game. Dagenham have goals in them and Sutton's biggest injury worries come in defence. Marathon go 23/20 about a home win and I am pretty keen on that. Gateshead v Chester Like Guiseley Chester also sacked their manger early into the season and also like them I thought there was a big improvement from them on Saturday. Caretaker boss Tom Shaw got a big performance from his side and they really should have picked up all 3 points against draw specialists Ebbsfleet. Gateshead haven't won in 4 games now and although they have drawn 3 of them I really don't think they are playing well at the moment. Granted the home side have won 3 of their 4 games at home and they have yet to concede a goal which is a concern when backing the away team, but they are just too big a price. It should be remembered that Chester have only lost 3 games so far this season so its not like there is anything that drastically wrong with the side. Marathon are 47/10 and I would make them at least half that price. Southport v Harrogate The prices in this game really do baffle me. Southport have had two disastrous results after such a good start to the season. I think this can be put down to some key injuries and suspensions and it is clear that past the best 11 there isn't much strength in depth in the squad. Stockport put 6 past them on Tuesday night and then Kidderminster were comfortable 3-0 wins when they hosted them on Saturday. They now have to face Harrogate who have looked like a team who will be challenging for the title this season. They have scored 29 goals already and sit top of the table having only lost one game. They were one of my winners on Saturday when they won 5-1 after going a goal at AFC Telford. How on earth they aren't even favourites for this game is staggering and Bet365's 9/5 is a huge price. I make them the Nap's of next couple of nights. Bradford Park Avenue 1pt East Thurrock 1pt draw no bet Guiseley 1pt Dagenham & Redbridge 3pts Chester 1pt Harrogate 4pts

    So after a cracking mid-week with big profits, plus landing a huge gamble on Harrogate, we move on to Saturday's action. At the moment I am just going to preview the National League as I await other bookies to price up the FA Cup action, but once they do that will follow. The National League has been a bizarre league so fair this season with some really strange results and so it will be minimum stakes this weekend, but 3 bets appeal at the prices. Leyton Orient v Hartlepool No surprise that BT Sport have chosen to show this game between the two relegated sides on Saturday lunchtime. Orient bar the two defeats on 3G pitches started strongly whereas Hartlepool looked desperate and only had 2 points from their first six. Things have reversed though as Orient have lost their last two and Hartlepool won three on the bounce before drawing at Wrexham on Tuesday night. I have written that Orient had a kind fixture list to start with and that might just have masked the issues that are still there after the issues over the summer. Defensively in the last two games they have been shocking and that could well continue on Saturday. Craig Harrison must have been pretty close to getting the sack after the first six games, but that first win at Guiseley has kicked started their season. An impressive performance against Maidstone followed and then they were the first team to defeat Dagenham last Saturday. I don't understand the prices for this game and Marathon's 14/5 about an away win is way too big. Dover v Chester Dover went top on Saturday after winning at Aldershot, but they then followed that up with a defeat at home to Boreham Wood and rather strangely for a team who was top after 9 games they have only picked up 5 points at home this season. That has to be a concern for anyone wanting to take short odds about them in this match and after putting them up on Tuesday night I am happy to go with Chester again. After going 2 down to Gateshead they showed great spirit to get it back to 2-2 and they could have won the game although Gateshead ended up scoring a winner. They were the first goals Gateshead have conceded at home this season and the two performances since the change of manager have been encouraging. Skybet are biggest about an away win at 5/1. Woking v Sutton Given Sutton's dire away form last season it is amazing that they have already won more away than they did last term. They lost their first away game at Eastleigh, but have won the other 4 including when getting a very late winner at Dagenham on Tuesday night. I thought they were going to struggle there, but they did well to win and I think they can beat Woking on Saturday. The fact Woking have the 2nd best home form in the division is more proof of how strange this league has been so far this season, but they have had some kind home fixtures and think Sutton will pose a much tougher test. Sutton are just under 6/4 with Marathon and I would have them nearer evens myself. Hartlepool 1pt @ 14/5 with Marathon Chester 1pt @ 5/1 with Skybet Sutton 1pt at 73/50 with Marathon

I think the people on here don't get the credit they deserve ....I love to read people's posts and opinions on races and billyhills and others are the backbone of the forum and put in a lot of hard work to keep things moving ....It's much appreciated I know by all..

    330 Ffos Las Fastnet Spin 4/1 Bet365 As usual the ground will be testing at Ffos Las so the first ingredient we need is a proven mud lover. The selection has won on Soft, been placed on Heavy and has gone well here at the track so ticks a lot of boxes for me already. She has been in decent form lately and is only a pound higher than her last win, although that was some time ago. The yard are going well and often have a winner or two here and the booking of Fran Berry will do for me.

    well i'm looking at teams that are expected to win and who may not live up to expectations. this is really doggy round of games and i'm expecting things to go haywire as desperation of some clubs cause upsets against favorites. i could be guilty of over thinking some games but will give it a go nonetheless. first of all yeovil are expected to win their match against morecambe failed to beat the worst team in cheltenham on saturday and morecambe are similar opposition who could maybe win stevenage lost against lincoln when the guests were even ten men down during that match and that only hints to me their form is beginning to slide.i fancy crawley to win peterborough is another team who has potential but form is starting to go down after bright start it their previous two games it was first goalless draw against doncaster then a conceded three goals in first half home against bradford. milton keynes on the other hand are starting to gain form with draw against oxford and away win against plymouth. i see them getting stronger over the next few weeks. bristol rovers are expected to win their match but they have conceded in all six of their games so far and oldham have been so unlucky not to pick up more points recently, and although winless they got their first point against probably the best home team in division. they could cause an upset southend are winless in five but they have drawn 3. i expected them to lose against charlton but they are not playing too bad.they could give shrewsbury a run for their money. i would not be too confident going with shrewsbury to win this match easily despite their 100% record. bury just like oldham are desperate for a win. they lost recently twice 3-2 and once 1-0 and that by means is very unlucky. as long as they are proving they can score they can cause and upset i have always picked luton in my accumulators because i thought they had the best potential to fly through this league but have actually struggled for consistency and even scoring goals, failing to get on scoresheet in last two. port vale on the other hand cannot get much worse. they have five straight losses but at least their last three were narrow 1-0. they have a decent chance against uninspiring luton wimbledon and gillingham are both really poor at the moment but i cannot understand why gillingham are 4/1 to win. this is 50/50 in my opinion and an away win is very possible i admit sheff wed are on good run but brentford have tightened up defensively and played two goalless draws in last two matches and you have to wonder if they manage to score one goal here could they ride it out to victory without conceding. i think an away win is possible after burton trashing they next thing they will want to do is redeem themselves but not getting beat. norwich won on saturday but it was not convincing. i have see when burton se out for a draw they are very good at doing that so 4.50 for a draw is possible.

    HAYDOCK 4 45 Nordic Combined @ 20/1 bet365 e/w thanks Nordic Combined....from Brian Ellison yard the 3yo had nine races so far with six as a 2yo when after three races he was gelded in June last year his next two runs saw poor run and then a win , but looking back his first four races where GF and good but the win was on soft over a mile for first time at Thirsk in September before being put away for winter, The yard brought him back in May but increased the distance at York 1m4f soft when finished 5th and followed that up with a 2nd at Haydock soft the following month signs of going in right direction but his last two runs where poor on good going , That has saw yard increase to a new distance for today race and with the rain overnight we could see ideal conditions , They also bring in Josephine Gordon in to ride for first time and runs off same 68 mark

    Non-League Predictions > Sep 2nd

    Hartlepool v Maidstone. Hartlepool may have got their first win of the season on Monday, but I am still keen to take them on. Maidstone have had a cracking start to the season and have carried on their good end of season form from last season. They look big at just over 11/4 with Marathon. Leyton Orient v Guiseley Orient are doing much better than I thought they would early doors, although it has to be said they have had a fairly kind fixture list and that continues on Saturday when they face a managerless Guiseley who haven’t even put a caretaker manager in place for this match so they really will be mangerless! I mentioned on Monday about Guiseley’s awful away form and the two added together should mean a fairly comfortable afternoon for Orient. They are 29/20 (various) to make up the -1 handicap. Torquay v Chester Torquay look hopeless at the moment and although Chester aren’t that much better they certainly perform better away than at home as proven when they beat Aldershot last Saturday which was their first win of the season. These two sides should be much closer together in the betting and Chester are very much a value play at 12/5 with Bet 365. Hampton & Richmond v Dartford Dartford lost their first game of the season on Monday, but that was to an East Thurrock side who are still unbeaten. They can bounce back here against a Hampton side who have yet to really convince so far this season. Marathon go 9/5 about an away win and I would make Dartford favourites. Billericay v Didcot. For the 2nd season running bookmakers have left the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup alone, but this game is being streamed on the BBC website at 12.30pm. It is no surprise the BBC have gone with this game given all that is going on there at the moment. It also isn’t surprising that they are bigging this game up as a massive one given the cameras are there. Didcot are doing well so far this season at a step below their hosts, but given what Billericay have done to teams in their own division recently I can’t see anything but an easy home win. They will want to put on a show and prove to everyone how good they are and that makes the 5/4 with Paddy Power that they over come the -2 handicap very attractive and for the 3rd time this season I make them the Naps.

    Non-League Predictions > Aug 28th

    On holiday at the moment so just very brief thoughts AFC Fylde v Barrow These two sides are liking to draw so far this season, but I think the home team look in better shape and should hopefully build on Saturday's win. Barrow did well enough to get a draw on Saturday in their first game since Paul Cox quit, but it sounds like all is not well there if he wanted to quit and Fylde seem a fair price Guiseley v Hartlepool Obviously I didn't see Guiseley's game on BT Sport on Saturday, but it sounded like that was a good thing as they lost in a dull game 2-0. It's early days, but they have lost all 3 away games conceding 9 and scoring 0. At home they have won once and drawn twice in 3 games so it does seem they are focusing on home points. I don't need to add more to what I wrote on Saturday about Hartlepool and 21/10 about a home win is a big price. Maidstone v Dagenham & Redbridge Going with the same bet as Saturday which won with ease and would have been successful in 4 out of 6 of Maidstone's games. It is even money again with Skybet. Boston v Nuneaton Granted Nuneaton's away form hasn't been great to say the least, they have shown glimmers of fair form. Boston aren't anything special and ended Saturday's game with 9 men. These two should be closer in the betting than they are and 61/25 with Marathon is a big price. Darlington v Spennymoor Darlington haven't won in 3 now and the last two results will have been especially disappointing. Spennymoor continue to defy their silly 100/1 price for the title that Betway went and very nearly beat Salford on Saturday. 11/5 an away win Marathon looks a spot of value. Tamworth v Stockport One point separates these two sides, but I think Stockport look the stronger and I am not surprised they are being backed. 19/10 with Marathon still looks value though. Farnborough v Slough Farnbrough won their first game of the season and have lost their next 3, where as Slough have done the complete opposite. Slough are looking good after that defeat to Kettering, who have won all 4 of their games, and they can win again at 6/5. Thurrock v Billericay God knows how Kingstonian beat Billericay because they have been terrible since. Glenn's side have won all 3 games since and in the end hammered Burgess Hill 6-1 on Saturday. Thurrock did play on Friday night, but I doubt that will be much of an advantage over Billericay. They won although they had lost their other 3 games and beating pointless Worthing 3-2 doesn't say a great deal. I am amazed Billericay aren't much shorter and a shade of odds on looks a cracking price. They look the Nap of the day.

    Nuneaton v Kings Lynn The home side are struggling in the National League North this season and given Kings Lynn are near the top of the Evo-Stik Southern Premier we could be looking at a possible upset here. The away side did lose their first game of the season on Tuesday, but I just wonder if they might have had one eye on this game given they have a strong chance of causing an upset. BetVictor are 3/1 about an away win. Salisbury v Poole I saw Salisbury in this round last year as Gloucester played them and we were very lucky to get through to the next round with a 2-1 victory. Salisbury played really well and deserved at least a replay and I think they have a good chance of actually going through to the next round this year. Poole have looked a shadow of the side they were last season and have lost 7 of their 11 games letting in 22 goals in the process. Salisbury scored 8 against Slimbridge last week and although this game will obviously be a fair bit tougher I think they have a real chance of causing an upset. Paddy Power go 11/5 about a home win and there is just enough in that price for me. Southport v Bradford Park Avenue Harrogate landed the gamble on Tuesday night in some style and I am surprised Southport have been put in at odds on here. As I also mentioned in mid-week BPA are in great form at the moment and they were another winner I put up on Monday night. At 12/5 with Paddy Power BPA look the best bet of the weekend. Acca I always like doing an acca at this stage of the competition as you often get mis matches and I think you have a higher than normal chance of landing one. I have 6 teams and the acca pays nearly 2.3/1 with BetVictor. The teams are Bath, Boston, Chelmsford, Dartford, Harrogate and on Sunday Billericay. Kings Lynn 1pt @ 3/1 with BetVictor/Betfred Salisbury 1pt @ 11/5 with Paddy Power Bradford Park Avenue 2pts @ 12/5 with Paddy Power Bath, Boston, Chelmsford, Dartford, Harrogate and Billericay 1pt acca with BetVictor

    I can also see how it can look like that, and I appreciate the brutally honest comment which is what I prefer people to be like. The true fact is, talent has been picked off on forums for years. However, they usually find writing is a lonely business when there's no community attached to it and often return eventually. I've made addpea an offer to keep his previews here and he has accepted. He's fully deserving of it as he's contributed to PL for as many years as I can care to remember, so it's right that PL keeps its best talent and grows. The recent re-design and massive additions to the site are a sign of things to come, rewarding long standing members in different ways is what PL has always done and should always do. On a wider note, I'm trying to come up with a fair scheme for PL members to attract others they know to contributing and get paid for doing so, should they remain active, but I need to define very well first.

    Division 2 - Week 5 Selections

    Watford (2) 5.50 £5
  34. 3 points
    There’s quite a lot I like the look of this weekend in the EFL so will try and narrow my bets down later tonight. I’ll start with Championship and will try and add my comments on the other divisions if I get time. Just one win so far, in five games, and 12 goals conceded has meant it’s not been the easiest of starts for Daniel Farke at Norwich. It can only be the fact that they are playing Birmingham that they are 1.91 to win this one. Birmingham’s performances have probably been a bit better than their results though and they will be thinking they could have had a few more points on the board. They’ve made a few new singings including the impressive Jota from Brentford and with Redknapp in charge I like the look of them at 4.5 with Bet365. QPR have had tough fixtures so far and have pitted themselves well taking 7 points from their 5 games. Ipswich stormed out of the blocks winning 4 of their first 5 games. They had their pants pulled down last time out against Fulham but have goals in them. They’re currently carrying a few injuries but I like them at odds of 4.2 with Bet365. Bolton are winless in 5 games and in truth, probably haven’t deserved much better. Early season favourites Middlesbrough haven’t had everything their own way so far but should have too much for Bolton here. I don’t think I like them quite as short away from home so may leave them at a best price of 2.1 with BetVictor. Wolves have impressed so far this season and good wins against Middlesbrough, Derby, Hull (and Southampton in the cup) have seen them storm up the table. I’d probably expect them to continue the good form in front of their home fans. Opponents Millwall have only had 1 win so far (an impressive 4-0 win vs Norwich) but this disguises the fact that performances have been good. They should probably have more points on the board and I’ll watch this one with interest for future betting opportunities on them. Final potential one for me in the Championship sees the impressive attacking talent of Sheffield Wednesday take on Nottm Forest in the late kick off. Despite an embarrassment of riches up front, they haven’t scored more than once in any of their five games. This will no doubt change here against a Forest outfit whose performances probably haven’t been as good as their 3 wins would probably suggest. Despite this though, Forest are 4.85 to win this one with Marathon Bet and I could be tempted because of Wednesday’s early struggles in front of goal and the fact Forest have still managed 3 wins without playing particularly brilliantly.

    Non-League Predictions > Aug 25th & 26th

    Macclesfield v Dover Must admit I am not sure why this game takes place on Friday night, but hopefully it can give me a good start to the weekend. My tip for Dover to go down is already looking pretty bad given their strong start to the season. Their only defeat so far came against Bromley when in fact they were by far the better team and should really have won rather than suffering a 2-1 defeat. They got a solid draw against Barrow last Saturday and they look over priced to beat a Macclesfield side who look pretty average so far this season. Their only win so far came against Wrexham on the first day of the season, but they were fortunate to pick up the 3 points that day. Since then they have drawn at home to Hartlepool and Bromley before conceding two late goals against Sutton and then being well beaten 3-0 by Gateshead last weekend. Dover have looked the better side of the two so far and William Hill’s 11/5 looks too big. Dagenham & Redbridge v Bromley When John Still won the league with Luton he set them up to be very hard to score goals against in the early part of the season. It worked well although they scored very few, but he then worked on that once they were solid defensively. It is then surprising to see how bad Dagenham have defended so far this season. They have conceded in every game so far including two 2-2 draws and a 3-3 draw. At the other end, as those 3 results show, they don’t have any issues either and given their other 2 results were 2-1 victories that obviously means they have scored at least twice in all 5 matches so far this season. To be fair to Bromley they have only conceded twice this season, but that was against teams who haven’t exactly been prolific in their other games this season and I think they will find it much harder to keep Dagenham out. Bromley have scored 10 goals so far and although 6 did come against Lincoln it does show they have goals in them and they are sure to get a few chances against Dagenham’s dodgy defence. The bet I like here is for there to be over 2.5 goals and both teams to score which is even money with Coral and Stan James. That bet will have won in every Dagenham game this season. Hartlepool v AFC Fylde Two sides who have yet to win this season, but the away team have looked the better side to me. In my ante-post preview I was concerned about Hartlepool’s choice of manager and I really do think his lack of knowledge when it comes to this league has been a big issue as to why they have only 2 points on the board. I also talked about how Padraig Almond was going to be a key player for them and he left for Newport this week. That is a big blow for them especially as they have only scored 3 goals so far this season. Amazingly Fylde have drawn 4 of their 5 games so far with the only blip the 4-1 defeat to Maidenhead when Dave Tarpey scored all 4 goals. The last two Saturday’s they have conceded 90th minute equalizers and they aren’t far away from getting that crucial win. They have conceded 12 goals so far, but given Hartlepool’s lack of fire power hopefully that shouldn’t be too much of a concern and they do have goals in them so even if Hartlepool did manage 1 I would still be pretty hopeful Fylde could score at least 2. Marathon have them a shade bigger than 5/2 and that looks huge. They are my Nap of the day. Tranmere v Boreham Wood It is hard to know what has gone wrong so far this season for Tranmere and although it is early stages I am worried about my ante-post bet on them. They have only won once so far and that 3-1 victory over Woking are the only goals they have scored so far. That is a big concern as they should really be a team full of goals. On paper they also had a pretty easy start to the season so the fact they have only picked up 5 points is disappointing. Obviously for ante-post reasons I hope they can get 3 points on Saturday, but I have to back Boreham Wood here at 23/5 with Marathon. Wood certainly have had no issues with scoring goals and they are the leagues joint top scorers on 13 with Aldershot, who they beat 2-1 last Saturday. There may have been a bit of fortune in both their goals, but they were the better team and deserved the win. I would still have Tranmere as favourites for this game, but there is no way that Wood should be that big given the current form of both sides and they are worth a bet. Hungerford v Gloucester City My team Gloucester have had a very slow start to the season and only had a point on the board prior to a really good 1-0 win over Hemel last Saturday. That was a much improved performance and hopefully that will kick start Gloucester’s season. On the back of that I can’t really understand why Marathon have an away win priced up at 100/30 especially as Hungerford have the same points tally as City. Hungerford picked up their 4 points in their first two games and have lost their following 3. They also lost their manager last weekend who resigned after the Welling game saying he had already made up his mind to leave and then a couple of days later ended up as Wealdstone manager despite the fact he said in a statement that he was going to take a break! Why he just couldn’t have been honest I don’t know, but he has also taking his coaching team with him which has left two senior players in charge at Hungerford. That has to have had some sort of affect on the players and although they should still be favs these two sides should be much closer in the betting. Dorking Wanderers v Staines Town Staines have made a really good start to the season. They played well at Dulwich in their opener when getting a 1-1 draw and then they have scored 11 without reply when beating Tooting 6-0 and Kingstonian 5-0. Promoted Dorking did win their only home game 4-1 against Met Police, but they have lost their other two games and this looks their toughest test yet. I certainly am not saying Staines are going to score in big numbers again, but after such a promising start to the season they should be capable of picking up three more points. BetVictor are biggest at 11/8.

    Hello, it's been some time since my last post. So, in a nutshell, this thread is not dead yet. I've worked a lot on improving the data quality and the whole data acquisition process, improving the data model, simplifying the codebase and making this whole thing more reliable and maintaiable. Still, some way to go, but I estimate I will be ready with new predictions in 3-4 weeks. Until then, good fortunes!
