Silk­men tipped for home vic­tory

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

BOTH Mac­cles­field and Dover, who meet on Satur­day, still have plenty to play for as they both en­deav­our to se­cure a play-off berth.

Home ad­van­tage ac­counts for Town’s in­stal­la­tion as Lad­brokes’ 6/4 favourites to claim three points, whereas Dover, who have games in hand on most of their ri­vals, can be backed at 2/1 with Wil­liam Hill. The draw is of­fered at 13/5 by Boyles­ports.

Con­fer­ence spectators suf­fered from a rel­a­tive dearth of goals last week – only 23 were scored in 10 fix­tures, four of which ended as draws. As the sea­son gal­lops to­wards its de­noue­ment, this is wor­thy of note.

It is of­ten the case that a 1-1 draw is the cor­rect score mar­ket’s most pop­u­lar out­come (the like­li­hood of us see­ing the same re­sult at Mac­cles­field on Satur­day is priced at 6/1 by Skybet), but there’s prob­a­bly a greater chance that the match will be set­tled by a sin­gle goal. Only one Con­fer­ence con­test ended 1-1 last week and while this might be an iso­lated case, the scale of BetVic­tor’s 10/3 for Mac­cles­field to win by a one-goal mar­gin could per­suade pun­ters it is the week­end’s most com­pelling wa­ger.
