Gulls are cer­tain to pose prob­lems

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

MAC­CLES­FIELD face the trick­i­est of trips to the south coast on Sun­day where they come up against a Torquay side likely to cause them some prob­lems.

Though they open as Lad­brokes’ 11/10 favourites, this will al­most cer­tainly not be an easy romp for Town.

In­deed, Stan James’s 13/8 odds against the open­ing pe­riod fin­ish­ing 0-0 has found favour amongst pun­ters, while the like­li­hood of it fin­ish­ing goal­less at 90 min­utes, rated a 10/1 shot by Co­ral, has been snapped up by those anx­ious to add some form of in­sur­ance to their week­end wa­ger.

Book­ies re­port that pun­ters’ bet­ting pat­terns sug­gest they’re not ex­pect­ing a hat­ful of goals, an un­der­stand­able cau­tion which ex­plains the pop­u­lar­ity of BetVic­tor’s 8/15 odds about the fix­ture yield­ing fewer than 2.5 goals.

Pun­ters an­tic­i­pat­ing a smat­ter­ing of goals may fancy Boyles­ports’ 4/6 for both teams to score, while Wil­liam Hill post 7/1 against a 1-0 vic­tory for Town and bet365 rate the chances of it fin­ish­ing as a score draw at 100/30.

It would sur­prise few pun­ters were it to end in stale­mate – Skybet chalk 5/2 against the match draw, but this is the sort of cup tie that Mac­cles­field are ca­pa­ble of win­ning.

Pun­ters who feel they will but are un­able to be any more pre­cise may, there­fore, fancy Lad­brokes’ 7/2 for the Cheshire­men to en­joy a one goal mar­gin of vic­tory.
