National League: Town can cut loose in Harrogate


NON-LEAGUE expert Paul Maddison (@LouthBigDog) shares his best bets from Tuesday night's action in the National League.

Harrogate v Chorley | Tuesday 3rd September 2019, 19:45

Harrogate haven't had the best of starts to the season, having only won twice in their opening eight fixtures, but they should be confident of putting another three points on the board here as they take on a Chorley side who looked poor against Boreham Wood at the weekend.

That 3-1 loss to Boreham Wood means that Chorley have now conceded 20 goals in their last six fixtures, and you can see why with the state of some of their defending on Saturday.

Simon Weaver's side were the highest scorers in the league last season, so will fancy their chances in front of goal here. Harrogate to score Over 1.5 Goals at 4/5 with Coral looks a good price.

Wrexham v Maidenhead | Tuesday 3rd September 2019, 19:45

It's been a poor start to the season by Wrexham, with just one win since the opening day of the season. The Dragons can usually rely on a solid defence to keep them in games, but they have only managed to keep one clean sheet so far.

The pressure is on Bryan Hughes; if results don't quickly improve then it wouldn't be a shock to see him out of a job.

Alan Devonshire, on the other hand, has done an excellent job with Maidenhead, a side many thought would struggle this season. The Magpies sit in fourth, with 16 points from their opening eight fixtures. On the road they have been particularly impressive with four wins out of four and conceding just once.

Bet365 have Maidenhead at a very big looking 15/4 to win the game. I'm going to play it a bit safer though and take them +0.5 on the Asian Handicap with the same firm at 21/20.

Best Bets

Harrogate v Chorley – Harrogate to score Over 1.5 Goals (4/5 Coral)

Wrexham v Maidenhead – Maidenhead +0.50 Asian Handicap (21/20 Bet365)

I first got the taste for betting when I was quite young, every year I would pick a horse for the Grand National and my Dad would go to the bookies and put my £1 each way bet on. As soon as I could get away with it I was in the bookies every Saturday afternoon searching the football coupons and putting on stupidly big accas. Now enjoy betting mainly singles or small multiples, usually sticking to the English leagues. I don't favour any particular market, but rarely watch a game without having small first scorer bet for a bit of fun. I've got 3 boys which take up most of my time, but luckily they enjoy going to watch football and days at the races. I'm a life long Grimsby Town fan, one of a few that has seen some ups as well as all the downs.
