Non-League Predictions > October 1st

Recommended Posts

Saturday yet again showed the fine margins involved in football betting. Gloucester, Barrow and Halifax winning would have been OK, but for the two biggest bets to score winners so late on turned it into a fantastic day. I think it was a deserved change of luck after not having a great deal go right during September. There are a few games on Tuesday night and I like 4 bets at Step 3.

Brightlingsea Regent v Enfield Town

The home side are now without a manger after they blew a 2 goal lead against Lewes on Saturday, losing 3-2. They have now lost 3 on the bounce and they have only won 2 of their 9 league games so far. One of those came against bottom side Corinthian-Casuals although they did manage to be the only team to beat title favs Hornchurch so far this season. Hopefully one of my tips for the title Enfield can give them a 4th defeat on the trot. They are currently in 4th place and the only game they have lost in the league was a horror show against 4th placed Horsham. They have been seeing off the teams lower down in the table and should have too much for their hosts and are 36/25 with Marathon.

Corinthian-Casuals v Horsham

Casuals are really struggling in the league this season having failed to win a game and they featured in a dire game on Saturday against Pitters Bar which ended 0-0. It is amazing they managed to beat Chelmsford in the FA Cup given how badly they have done in the league, but that also means they may not have their full focus on this game given they have their next FA Cup game on Saturday against Kings Langely. For me at this stage of the season that will surely have more significance than this league game. Horsham's only league defeat this season came in a 1-0 loss against Folkestone who are top and undefeated. They have won 4 of their 5 away games and they are out of the Cup so don't have that to worry about. Granted they should have beaten Cheshunt easier on Saturday as they ended up with 9 men and the goal was an own goal, but I think Horsham should really be a shade of odds on so Marathon's 139/100 looks a cracking price.

Merstham v Worthing

Worthing have only played 7 league games so far this season, but they have only lost twice to the current top 2 in the division so the rest of their form looks decent. It does include a crazy 5-5 draw as well. 13 points from 7 games is a decent enough return. Merstham don't look anything special this season and 2 of their 3 wins so far have come against the bottom 2 sides and they have lost 3 of their last 4 games. Marathon's 51/25 looks too big about an away win to me.

Scarborough v Basford United

The slight concern here is that Scarborough have drawn all 4 of their home games this term which include bottom side Buxton and top side South Shields. Overall though they have only won once in the league and are currently in 17th place so I am happy enough with the price about Basford being the first team to pick up 3 points at Scarborough this season. Basford are in 4th and have only lost 3 of their 9 league games and they have been against top of the table South Shields, 3rd placed Matlock and 6th placed Grantham. Also key is their game on Saturday was called off and that could well prove crucial given Scarborough had a tough game against Warrington. I think Marathon's 46/25 is worth taking about an away win.

Enfield Town 2pts @ 36/25 with Marathon

Horsham 3pts @ 139/100 with Marathon

Worthing 1pt @ 51/25 with Marathon

Basford United 1pt @ 46/25 with Marathon

Seems like not much happened in the first half and the home side scored a free kick. 2nd half though Horsham dominated and deserved the win from what I can tell. Whatever happened though we had a fantastic bet even at the original price let alone the 2/1 they touched at one stage.

Well done @Darran

Been following you for a while. It takes a savvy punter to pick a team with enough fight in them to win from behind, and not only have you done that three times in the last week, but you put your money where your mouth is and stuck a lump on all of them. Was a pleasure riding the bets too. Thanks. Fantastic stuff.

Where do you do your research?

Twitter, club websites, local paper sites and the Non League Paper for news info and match reports. I then like to use Football Web Pages for stats based stuff as I find it easy to use for what I am looking for
