I REFRAINED from posting tips on Monday and that was one of the best calls I’ve made recently.
Almost all of the sides that looked good on paper – RoPS, Paderborn, Silkeborg, Sirius – failed to win so no bet was a no brainer.
Tuesday’s card is dominated by the dreaded JP Trophy as well as National League matches and Welsh games. I’ve chosen not to take any WDW bets for the cup matches and would advise anyone considering a side to see confirmation of line-ups before having a punt.
It’s likely to be a goals night and Greg Browning has put up tips while Desmond has posted an early 2+ double for Saturday.
My concentration has been on the National League games and teams I like include Altrincham at home to Halifax, Cheltenham at home to Braintree and Dover at Torquay.
For the Super Single I’m chancing Dover at a best 11-10 with William Hill at their south-coast rivals. The sides are in contrasting form with Dover on a run of three wins and up to fifth in the table – their highest position in the pyramid system. They are going for four wins in a row at this level for the first time and are unchanged from the side that won 3-2 at Gateshead at the weekend.
Dover have netted 10 goals in their three victories while in contrast Torquay look in a bit of disarray. They lie 22nd in the table and without a win in 11 including a 7-3 home defeat to Bromley. Kevin Nicholson has been appointed player-boss after manager Paul Cox quit Plainmoor after three months without being paid.
The Gulls have picked up just one point from their last six home matches, conceding 16 goals, while away from home Dover have lost one of their last six.
Bromley are a team that’s been mentioned a lot on the site and it was a surprise to see them not scoring at Tranmere at the weekend. A 4-0 defeat looks bad but having read a match report it seems Bromley were unlucky – denied a couple of penalties while Tranmere’s keeper should have been sent off for handling outside his box.
So it’s six wins in seven for Bromley and they head to a Welling side going for five victories on the spin. Welling have won the last three playings of this fixture with both scoring so let’s start a goals treble with both to score.
Add both to score at Grimsby v Gateshead which has finished 2-2 in three of the last five meetings. There have been comments asking why Gateshead, who lie fourth, are as big as 6-1 and it does look big. However, Grimsby have lost just one in seven so I’d prefer again to take the goals bet.
Complete the treble with Wrexham v Tranmere. This is another derby of sorts with third-place Tranmere heading to the Welsh side in sixth. Tranmere have netted eight in three while Wrexham have lost their previous two matches 3-2 so there should be goals.
I’ve looked over the JP games and will resist the attempt to predict anything – it’s simply not worth the risk.
