NON-LEAGUE expert Paul Maddison (@LouthBigDog) shares his favourite fancies from a Saturday card of National League action.
Aldershot v Boreham Wood | Saturday 24th March 2018, 15:00
The Shots have dropped off the pace a bit in recent weeks and are now down to sixth in the league, a point and three places behind their opponents here.
Their only win in their last six games has come against a Hartlepool side who are hovering dangerously above the relegation places. Only two weeks ago Aldershot lost 6-1 to Fylde who played for 30 minutes with just 10 men, although the damage had been done by that time.
I don't think many would have predicted the season Boreham Wood are having. They are finding form at the right time too as they mount a serious challenge for league football.
The Essex side are unbeaten in eight, winning five of those games and conceding just three times. Only Sutton have picked up more points over the last 10 league games.
Their away form is very impressive also. Their only loss in their last 17 away games against League Two Coventry.
I'm going to be slightly cautious with my bet here and back Boreham Wood in the Draw No Bet market at 69/50 with Marathonbet.
Dagenham & Redbridge v AFC Fylde | Saturday 24th March 2018, 15:00
This game is screaming goals to me.
The Daggers have seen 13 of their 19 home games in league go Over 2.5 with the average being 3.4 goals per-game over that period. Five of their last six home games have even gone Over 3.5 Goals.
No team in the league have scored more than Fylde, they have scored wine more than any other team yet at the same time only one team in the top half of the table have conceded more goals than them, and that's their opponents here.
Over the 38 games they have played so far this season they have seen an average of 3.2 goals per-game. In recent weeks they have been involved in 18 goals in their last three games.
Over 2.5 Goals is available at 4/5 with Bet365.
Torquay v Guiseley | Saturday 24th March 2018, 15:00
I'm going for goals on the south coast too.
Not because I feel these two are capable of great attacking displays, but due too them both being so poor defensively. They have the two worst defensive record in the league and both look certain for relegation.
The Gulls have conceded 17 goals in their last six home games, with four of those games seeing them concede three or more goals.
Guiseley have really struggled defensively away from home this season: in 19 games they've conceded 47 goals, nearly 2.5 goals per-game.
They have managed to score in most of their away games though, especially against teams who have been struggling. The last time a team from the bottom half of the table kept a clean sheet against them was back in September.
Both Teams To Score is my bet here at 17/20 with Marathonbet.
Aldershot v Boreham Wood– Boreham Wood draw no bet (69/50 Marathonbet)
Dagenham & Redbridge v AFC Fylde – Over 2.5 Goals (4/5 bet365)
