After a quiet week, the Football Bet of the Day returns on Saturday, and it sees me focus on the English National League, and there is one fixture in particular appeals to me for goals.
⚽️ York City vs Hartlepool United
🏴 National League
⏰ Saturday 18th November, 15:00
Improving York City welcome out-of-form Hartlepool to the York Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon in a fixture that appeals to me for goals.
Neal Ardley’s hosts have scored 27 goals across their opening 19 matches in the National League this term, with 15 (56%) of them coming in front of their supporters. The Minstermen have found the back of the net in each of their previous eight league tussles on home soil – striking on multiple occasions in six (75%) of them – and they will be confident of troubling a Hartlepool defence that has recorded a league-low one clean sheet in the National League this season, shipping multiple goals in 12/19 (63%) of their matches, including in 7/9 (78%) of their road trips.
John Askey’s visitors have scored 31 goals across their opening 19 National League fixtures this campaign, with 14 (45%) of them coming on their travels. Pools have have made the net bulge in all bar one of their opening nine road trips this term – scoring two or more in (56%) of them – and they will be confident of breaching a York defence that has registered just two shutouts in the league this season, with only 22nd-placed Oxford City and 23rd-placed Fylde (both 38) conceding more than their tally of 37.
Bet of the Day
Hartlepool’s opening nine National League fixtures on their travels are averaging 3.78 goals per game, with Both Teams to Score & Over 2.5 Goals banking in seven (78%) of them – and given six of York City’s previous eight league encounters at home have seen the same land – I’m happy to have a punt on there to be a minimum of three goals in this fixture tomorrow afternoon, with both sides contributing.
