Non-League Predictions > 7th December


Recommended Posts

1 bet in mid-week and it was a losing one which wasn't helped when Hitchin missed a penalty when it was still 0-0. Then on Tuesday night Blyth went and beat Alfreton in the FA Trophy and you may remember I put Blyth up last week when the game was postponed having also put them up in the first game. The fact they lost 6-0 on Saturday put me right off, but obviously still frustrating as that could easily have been a winning bet. Anyway onto Saturday and I have 5 bets.

Dover v Boreham Wood

Dover's poor home form continued in their last league game when they lost 4-3 to Maidenhead. Out of 12 home league games they have won just two against Wrexham and Eastleigh and with Boreham Wood unbeaten in 6 and having lost just twice in their last 10 this will be a tough game for them. The slight concern is they do draw a lot as they have drawn 4 in their unbeaten run, but It was a good win against Woking last Saturday and I think they are over priced to win this game at 12/5 with Marathon given how dodgy Dover are at home.

Woking v Hartlepool

Neither of these sides are losing very much at the moment with Woking losing just 3 of their last 10 league games and Hartlepool losing just 2, but as I mentioned a couple of weeks ago when I put Hartlepool up to beat Chesterfield I think they are a good side who should be higher up the table. They showed their class on Sunday when coming from 2 down to draw with Exeter and I am certain they are a better team than Woking. Like the game above the draw is a slight concern again, but I am happy to take them for the win at 21/10 with Bet365 as for me that is bigger than it ought to be.

Slough v Braintree

Slough are having a cracking season and are currently in 3rd position in the National League South having lost just 4 of their opening 18 games. They have only lost 1 of their last 10 games and their draw last Saturday against Tonbridge was the only other time they have failed to win in that spell. Needless to say I am opposing Braintree again here after Hampton landed the massive odds for us last Saturday with ease. This should be a home win and arguably it isn't priced up short enough at the current odds, but I am going to take them on the -1 handicap with is a 2/1 shot with Betfair, Paddy Power and Betway.

Hednesford v Hitchin

Here we have two teams who have both let us down in the last week with the home side losing on Saturday and as mentioned above Hitchin losing on Monday. Clearly not all is well at Hednesford though as the management team left on Monday to go to Buxton with on the face of it seems an odd move. That's why I can only think that something is going on behind the scenes and a poor performance on Saturday in a game they should have won on paper backs that up. As I wrote on Monday the only game Hitchin had lost in their last 10 was against Leiston who were really bad at the time so losing to a weakened Lowestoft would suggest they have some issues about seeing off the weaker teams at times. This could be a good time to be playing Hednesford and at 12/5 I am happy to beat Hitchin to beat them.

Redditch v Leiston

Speaking of Leiston I am backing them on Saturday. I must admit I was hoping for a bigger price, but in some ways they are still too big for me and the price is under pressure as I type. Since former manger Glen Driver has come back to the club they have gradully improved and although they are yet to win they have drawn their last 2 games against Nuneaton and Royston. This game offers a great chance to get their first win under Driver as they play the worst side in the division Redditch. They have also just changed their manager, but they lost 7-0 against Peterborough Sports in his first game in charge on Saturday. For me Leiston are the stronger side here and the 6/4 is worth taking with BetVictor. They are as short as 11/10 with Bet365.

Boreham Wood 1pt @ 12/5 with Marathon

Hartlepool 1pt @ 21/10 with Bet365

Slough -1 2pts @ 2/1 with Betfair, Paddy Power and Betway

Hitchin 1pt @ 12/5 with Marathon

Leiston 2.5pts @ 6/4 with BetVictor

Braintree have announced that their player/manager has stepped down today so George Borg will be managing on Saturday. I doubt it will make too much difference, but he is more experienced. They have also lost a player to Romford this morning.
