iBet: Home win value for the cobblers and hornets

Gareth Purnell

League One and League Two

Back Northampton at 10/11 and Watford at even money, plus back the double

A price that jumps off the coupon at me today is Northampton to win at home to Torquay. We can get a backable 10/11 because Torquay have not lost in their last four themselves and have a very good record against the Cobblers. However, Northampton’s form has been brilliant of late, especially at Sixfields, and indeed and they have hauled themselves promotion picture with a run of six wins in their last nine, during which they have conceded at less than a goal a game. And Torquay are the fourth worst outfit in the division against teams in the top half. Another price that I can’t refuse is Watford to also grab three points at home. The Hornets have stuttered a little of late after a magnificent run, but they have a great chance of beating Burnley who have lost seven of eight against teams above them in the league and have only won one of their last 10 games. I think Watford should be shorter than the available even money.

Crystal Palace (odds on to beat Birmingham City today) and have been pretty awesome at home but Wilfred Zaha is banned and the two games they have played without him this season have resulted in a draw and a defeat. They could represent a low risk value lay at 1.86 on Betfair against the mid-table Midlanders, who have been unspectacular but solid of late losing only two of their last eight including three away wins in their last five. The draw is 5/2.
