Last Saturday it was winner winner, chicken dinner for us in this column as we hit on a 12/1 fivefold. We did have an 18/1 sixfold up but the sixth game was abandoned due to the tragic events in the crowd at Bolton. Two late goals, one at Swindon Supermarine and another at Cardiff City saw that acca come in.
This week we once more go six-games deep, this time at a price just north of 13/1...
Leg 1 - Notts County vs Stockport County @ 4/7
This is one of those rare occasions where I think a game deserves to be in both the Saturday BTTS column and the Over 2.5 Goals one here.
These are the top-two scorers in League 2, with the home side having found the net 56 times in 27 matches and the visitors doing even better, with 60 in the same amount of games.
No team has a better record for this stat than Notts County, with no fewer than 78% of their matches having had three or more goals so far this campaign. All the elements are there for one of the most entertaining games of the day and therefore it will probably be a 0-0.
Leg 2 - Hornchurch FC vs Concord Rangers @ 1/2
The first of four games spanning all four divisions from tier seven. We start in Essex where we have one of my favourite scenarios for this column, a team at the top-of-the-table hosting a side rock bottom of the league.
Hornchurch have been dominating the Isthmian League so far this season, with 16 wins, seven draws and just the solitary defeat from their 24 matches. They have a six-point lead over second-placed Chatham Town and have scored 12 more goals than any of the other 23 teams in their division.
This weekend they face Concord Rangers, who are propping up the table, although they have played several games fewer than their relegation-threatened rivals.
The recent form of the hosts is a tad concerning as they were an easy Over 2.5 play a couple of months back but only two of their games since the start of December have come in. Still, at home against a poor opposition, this should be a game where they fill their boots.
Leg 3 - Macclesfield FC vs Radcliffe Football Club @ 8/13
Next up is one of our non-league favourites here in the Saturday Over 2.5 Goals column as Radcliffe make the trip to Macclesfield.
Like the first leg, this sees the team with the best record for finding the back of the net in their division face-off against the side with the second-best record. Radcliffe have scored 62 times in 23 games whereas Macclesfield are at 50 from 24.
Whenever you have the top scorers against one another, it is a good recipe for the Over 2.5 hitting, so we’ll roll with it again.
Leg 4 - Mickelover Sports vs St Ives Town @ 1/2
I could pretty much copy/paste the previous leg here as Mickelover Sports are the joint-top scorers in the Southern Central division and they are playing at home to the fourth-best team for goals in St Ives Town on Saturday.
The visitors sit in 16th position with the home side currently sitting in top spot thanks to Goal Difference. So this one hits from two perspectives, both are good attacking teams plus the hosts being significantly better than the opposition. I like this leg a lot.
Leg 5 - Poole Town vs Swindon Supermarine @ 4/9
Last week I wrote in this very column in regards to Swindon Supermarine, ‘Over 2.5 has been a winner in eight-straight with results of 3-2, 2-3, 1-2, 1-2, 3-1, 4-1, 4-1 and 3-4 going back to the final weekend of November.’
Well they came good once again to make it nine-straight in a 2-1 home win over Walton & Hersham. They left it late though with an 87th-minute winner for Joe Tumelty seeing the home side get the three points and that leg coming in for us as part of the 12/1 winner last Saturday.
I’m happy to keep rolling with the Wiltshire-based club until they fall short and I don’t think that’ll be this week, as matches involving Poole Town have averaged just shy of four-goals-a-game so far this season.
Leg 6 - Loughgall FC vs Newry City @ 8/11
The longest-priced leg of the sixfold comes from Northern Ireland where Newry City are already looking like a side set to end of the season rock-bottom of the NIFL Premiership.
Barry Gray was installed as manager back in early January but he’s not yet turned around their fortunes. It is now five-straight defeats in league play for the City and having conceded 62 times in 25 matches, you can probably see why I’ve included them in this accumulator.
Loughgall are no great shakes but are considerably better than their opponents based on league form. Newry City are an obvious play for the Over 2.5 with four-straight coming in. The home side are also on a four-game streak for this bet. Let’s roll with this one to round off our 13/1 play this weekend.
