JACK Wright's (@JackWright_BSB) Bet of the Day continues on Saturday as we head to the the National League.
Wrexham vs Kings Lynn | Saturday 22nd May 2021, 15:00
The National League has definitely become a league split between the haves and the have nots – this is probably no better illustrated than this clash in north Wales.
The home side are now rivalling Bayern Munich for the nickname FC Hollywood after the sensational news that A-list actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney completed a takeover of the club in February promptly pledging a £2million investment into the club as part of this deal.
All this while their opponents have players unavailable for selection as they are on furlough, others released to get them off the wage bill and players car sharing to games – however as there is no relegation out of the league this season, the Lynnets have achieved their primary objective.
Ian Culverhouse’s side are one of my “go to’s” for goals especially recently – conceding 88 league goals this campaign and 30 in their last 10, 16 in the last five outings – Yeovil manager Darren Sarll last week pointed out due to having safety guaranteed the Norfolk side are playing with “ridiculous freedom” – although it has to be said not with positive results!
Lynn haven’t won in 10 games losing eight of them whilst their last 10 aways have seen them pick up just one point and concede 31 goals with the following set of results: 3-0, 3-1, 1-0, 3-0, 4-0, 4-2, 1-1, 5-1, 4-1, 3-1 – which tempted me to play the Wrexham goals line but instead the price and line for match goals caught my eye.
With the battle for the play offs places incredibly tight – just two points separate the Red Dragons in sixth from tenth placed Halifax with 4th to 7th taking place in the first stage of the play offs, as a result goal difference could be crucial and as such this represents a massive opportunity to boost that vital statistic.
Of their 20 league road trips, Kings Lynn have seen three or more goals in 14 (70%) with eleven seeing this bet win (55%) – so with the safety net of a refund/void bet if there are three goals, I am very happy to play over three goal line with Bet 365 at odds of 19/20.
Wrexham vs Kings Lynn – Over 3 Goals (19/20 Bet365)
