Leagues Tipped:

SlipsTips casts his eye over the Bet Builder market ahead of Northampton's English League Two playoff semi-final second-leg showdown with Mansfield on Wednesday night.

Northampton vs Mansfield (Wednesday, 19:45)

Northampton will have to overturn a 2-1 first-leg deficit at home to Mansfield on Wednesday night if they want to reach the English League Two playoff final.

Jon Brady’s side were beaten 2-1 at Field Mill on Saturday night as their chances of securing promotion suffered a blow.

However, Northampton will draw momentum from the fact that they have already beaten Mansfield on home turf this term and that is perhaps reflected in the odds, with the hosts general 7/5 favourites here.

That being said, Nigel Clough’s crew are now unbeaten in five matches so I’m happy to steer clear of the 1×2 betting and instead head to the Bet Builder market and merge over four Northampton corners and over two match cards at even-money (1/1) with Bet 365.

The Cobblers were standard-frequency corner performers during the regular season, averaging 4.33 flag kicks per-game, however that tally increased to 5.39 when operating at their Sixfields base.

What’s more, given the home team's position, they simply have to go in search of victory here and they should rack up a few corners in the process.

It’s also worth pointing out that Northampton clocked up no fewer than seven corners during Saturday’s first leg and I see no reason to oppose them hitting the 5+ line here in-front of a sell-out home crowd.

Given what's at stake, I’m more than happy to round off the recommended Bet Builder with over two match bookings.

Both teams averaged in the region of two yellow cards per-game in League Two this season, not to mention referee Robert Madley was dishing out 3.5 cards per 90 whilst on duty in the third tier this term.

With all things considered, as well as the fact that the same combination clicked during the first leg, supporting the same formula at Sixfields on Wednesday night stands out at even-money (1/1) with Bet 365.

Recommended Bet

  • Over 4 Northampton Corners
  • Over 2 Match Cards
  • Bet Builder – 1/1 (Bet 365)
