Facing a difficult trip into Forest
MACCLESFIELD face a difficult assignment is Gloucestershire this weekend where they go head-to-head with promotion-chasing Forest Green.
Town head south priced as Stan James’s lengthy-looking 4/1 underdogs to register three points, whereas second-placed Forest Green open as BetVictor’s 4/6 favourites.
However, given each side’s need for points, there has been plenty of support for the draw in its various guises, including the 5/2 odds chalked by Ladbrokes against the stalemate. Coral offer 5/1 against both halves finishing on level terms, while Skybet’s 6/1 for it to end 1-1 is the most heavily-backed result in the correct score markets.
The likelihood of it ending goalless cannot be discounted – it’s priced at 9/1 by Paddy Power – while Winner.com post 3/1 against it ending as a score draw.
Are Macclesfield bold enough to go for a maximum return?
The home side could get a little jittery, an observation (or a hope) which adds appeal to Betfred’s 5/4 for Town to win when handed a goal start and suggests that they could pull off a shock.
They’re 9/1 (bet365) to win 1-0, odds capable of persuading undecided backers that a modest punt could pay handsome dividends. Sponsored by Sportsbook ofthemonth.com WIN a signed copy of Hollie’s Road to Kona by Hollie Cradduck. Visit www.sportsbook ofthemonth.com for further details.
