Non-League Predictions > Aug 19th

Recommended Posts







A full list of odds for this weekend's non-league fixtures. Keen to hear what you guys all think. On a personal note, Merthyr Town drew again in midweek after throwing away a two goal lead. Disappointing. Suffering a lot of injuries and lacking a bit of confidence at the moment. I think 1.80 is perhaps just a little low for their game away against Dunstable. They should win but right now I'm not sure they are in the form they want to be and are vulnerable, particularly away from home.

What about the rest of you? Any thoughts on these games?

Solihull v Halifax

Just the one bet for me in the National League this week and it is the home side. Now I know Barrow went down to ten men, but it was a great performance for the home side to come back from 2 down to make it 3-2. Unfortunately for them Barrow scored a late equaliser, but it was the first signs of life from Solihull this season. They should take a lot of heart out of that performance and they face what on paper is an easier game here. Halifax have drawn 2 and lost 2 so far and although they haven’t performed badly as such, they have been rather underwhelming so far. What I can’t understand is why Halifax are nearly as short as Barrow were on Tuesday night. These two sides should both be in a relegation battle this season and I doubt there is all that much between them. That means the home side are way too big at 23/10 (Marathon) as I would make them marginal favourites based on home advantage.

Poole v St Albans

On the face of it Poole have had a very good start to the season, but I don’t think it tells the whole story, especially when looking at their win on Tuesday night against Chippenham. They won 1-0 thanks to a 93rd minute winner, but Chippenham only had 9 men from the 65th minute so they should have won the match easier than they did. Their other win was against Weston on the first day of the season and I don’t think that says an awful lot. St Albans on the other-hand have the only 100% record in the division and are looking every bit the title contenders I hoped they would be when I put them up for the title pre-season. Most impressive was their 2-0 victory at title favourites Chelmsford on Monday night and I think the 2/1 with BetVictor and Stan James is worth taking on them to make it 5/5.

Brackley v Spennymoor

Two sides who both come into this game with 100% records and something will obviously have to give here. Spennymoor are already proving their 100/1 title odds when betting opened up as silly by winning all 3 of their games including beating Stockport on day 1 of the season. This game will obviously be tough, but to me this is by far and away Brackley’s toughest game yet and I just don’t understand how Spennymoor can be as 7/2 with Marathon to win this. Brackley do look stronger than last season and they should be in the play-off picture and they are the right favs, but I would have Spennymoor around the 2/1 mark so they have to be backed.

Gosport Borough v Royston Town

These two sides had very differing seasons last time around as Gosport were relegated whilst Royston were promoted and it is Royston I want to be backing here. Gosport have had all sorts of issues the last couple of seasons and it was no real surprise they came down and you have to wonder if they might suffer another relegation based on their two losses so far. They lost 5-1 at home to Slough on Tuesday night and obviously Slough should be in contention for the title, but Royston were another one of my bets for the league so this should be another tough game for the hosts. They lost 2-1 to Stratford last weekend, but they bounced back with a good performance in beating a decent Farnborough side 1-0 on Wednesday night. The price on the away side isn’t far off 2/1 with Marathon and that looks way too big and I make them the best bet of the weekend.

Merstham v Tooting & Mitcham

Last season Merstham were pretty strong and home but pretty poor away and you just wonder if it might be the same this season. Saturday saw them beat Wingate & Finchley 4-1 at home, but they then lost 2-1 at Folkstone on Tuesday night. Back at home I fancy them to beat promoted Tooting who drew with fellow promoted side Brightlingsea on Saturday but followed that up with a 6-0 defeat at Staines on Tuesday night. I think they can find it tough this season and Merstham are nearly 6/4 with Marathon to make it 2/2 at home.

Maidenhead v Ebbsfleet 

I think Ebbsfleet can outshine in that encounter.They both got promoted and there is not much between these two sides.

Brackley v Spennymoor

I do think value lies on Spennymoor and the price is generous.Worth to take a chance on it.

Wealdstone v Chelmsford

Chelmsford will look to bounce back from the defeat from St Albans last Monday and today it is a less tough match than the previous one.

Ashton Utd v Grantham

Grantham can keep their winning momentum and they can make it 3/3.

Marine v Barwell

Barwell can win this encounter as the rival is not a very consistent team.

Hereford v Slough

The price of slough is appealing,it's worth to take a chance as it is a good team.

Solihull v Halifax

Halifax should win this. Solihull have struggled, and have only managed to score more than once in a match when they were against 10 men of Barrow. Halifax have shown they are solid at the back and just need to score more, which they should be capable of against this poor Solihull defence. Halifax were unlucky not to get a point against a strong Dover side midweek and have had a tough start to the season, compared to the relatively easy start on paper for Solihull. Halifax to win 6/4 with Sky Bet.

Could also be tempted by Halifax to win 1-0 / 2-0 if the price is right.


Boreham Wood v Aldershot

I can't for the life of me work out why Aldershot are 17/10 here. Boreham Wood have picked up an impressive 7 points so far. However they have only managed to scrape a draw against Fylde and beat struggling Torquay and Solihull. Aldershot are my bet for promotion this year after such an impressive end to last season and beginning of this season. Boreham Wood have conceded 7 goals already, and I don't think they will be able to score as freely against Aldershot as they did against Torquay and Solihull. Aldershot should put a few away here, I think 3-1 victory for Aldershot.
