Good day for us yesterday – both games picked won, both being BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 1/1 and 6/5. Bromley-Welling was BTTS inside 25 minutes, and the 3rd game midway through the 2nd half. Gillignham-Luton started fairsly poorly, but the away side grabbed a goal before HT which spurred The Gills into a comeback. Should have gone for Win + BTTS but at 0-1 with 55 gone, I’d be having kittens and regretting it. A nice, easy 3.5/1 double to go with Mark’s 3/4 on the Tennis and Jamie’s 1/2 on the Rugby.
Moving onto Wednesday – very little on, just Forest Green vs Aldershot
1. Forest Green-Aldershot BTTS + Over 2.5 Goals @ 11/10 (National League, 1945 KO – NAP)
Forest Green won 9 in a row to start the season, but in recent times – and their last 5 games, lost 3 and drawn 2. Their away form read W4/4 after their first 9 games, but it has dropped off as mentioned. Aldershot are one of those teams that win or lose, very rarely drawing. They have pumped the goals past poorer teams, but then conceded a lot against the better ones. Their away form is better than their home, with 3 losses in 6 at their own ground. However, Forest Green are just not trustable. The last time we backed them in a NAP they lost 4-1 after getting a man sent off – and after failing to win in 5, and conceding in most games – you feel Aldershot will bag at least one.
Both have a 50% BTTS + Over 2.5 record this season – Aldershot 3/7 @ Home, Forest Green 3/7 @ Away. Both have had a few others go either BTTS or Over 2.5 goals – but the deciding factor is the last four meetings. All four BTTS, and three going over 2.5 goals as well in 3-1, 3-1 and 2-2 results – one win each, and two draws (1-1 the other). Both have good goalscorers in their midst – Charlie Walker has 7 this season for Aldershot, while Richard Brodie has 5. Forest Green have many who have scored a few this season, the most being Aaron O’Connor with 6 – Kurtis Guthrie and Jon Parkin have four apiece.
Later we have an International piece – looking at all the possibilities going into the final set of fixtures in the European Championship qualifying.
Best of luck
