Even bookies unsure over Shots clash
PUNTERS preferring to give the delights of an early Christmas shopping trip the widest possible berth on Saturday have much on which to focus their attention.
Bookies offer dozens of different markets on Macclesfield’s contest against Aldershot, for example, the detailed perusal of which sounds infinitely preferable to pounding around the shops, wondering why so many festive baubles are on display so early.
The match stats team at bettingexpert.com remind us that only Forest Green have beaten Aldershot at the EEB Stadium this season and their otherwise excellent home form accounts for their 13/10 starting price (Betway) to secure a maximum haul this time.
Without a win in their last half dozen league matches, the Silkmen have slipped down the league table and kick off as Unibet’s 5/2 outsiders to put a halt to their miserable run by registering three points.
Yet Aldershot have not been in great form: they’ve won only one of their last five which suggests it’ll be extremely close.
BetVictor’s 11/10 for the first period to end on level terms has found favour amongst punters, many of whom have doubled up on bet365’s 9/4 for the opening half to finish goalless.
Elsewhere, Skybet’s 12/5 for the fixture to end with honours even holds considerable appeal, while Betway’s 5/1 for both halves to finish with the scores level cannot be discounted.
