odds are correct at time of publishing (21:51 on 05/08/2019) and subject to change.
I'm on a couple in the Premiership. Wolves to win at Leicester at 365's 11/5. At the time I put on the bet when prices first came out I thought there was a touch of value, forgetting Wolves had a Europa League game beforehand .
Also a draw at Bournemouth v Sheff Utd as I couldn't separate them and so Betway's 4/1 seemed high.
Non league, I'm on Wrexham to win at Dover at Boyle' s 6/4. I was kicking myself on Tuesday for not opposing Woking and backing Harrogate but I can kill both birds in one game, with Harrogate 17/10 to win at Woking. Woking lost at home to Aldershot on Tuesday, and (sadly) Harrogate are a better team than the Shots, and not much different to Barrow, who Harogate beat.
In the EFL I'm taking Mansfield to beat Morecambe at Sky's 8/13. Its shorter than I'd usually take, but I fancy Mansfield this season and this is the sort of game they need to win if they're doing to finish top seven for me. Also Wrexham to win at Macclesfield at 6/4 with the same reasoning, and I suspect later in the season Wrexham would be shorter. EDIT - oops I meant Orient, not Wrexham.
Finally, I'm taking Airdrie at Hills' 9/5 to win at Montrose. Montrose are expected to struggle and Airdrie look just a bit long to grab a win.
Plymouth to beat Colchester @ 2.30, my only bet today. Just a feeling that Plymouth will go well this season.
There is a full National league programme tonight. I'm on only one; Bath v Hungerford. They're two sides I've got a soft spot for and saw occasionally last season, Bath because it's my home city, and Hungerford because it was semi-local and because a colleague has links with the club. That of course doesn't mean a thing about tonight... Bath have started well, and apparently still like to play expansive football with their three games yielding seven points and six goals scored, one conceded.
Hungerford look like struggling again this year. The capture of James Constable up front is a coup and the team's three scored in three is respectable, but the seven goals conceded is the main issue and I'd be surprised if Bath aren't good enough to have this sewn up before the end. I got Bath -1 at 7/5 with Paddy, although the best price is now a little shorter.
Hungerford conceding plenty - Bath to score in both halves @ 2.20 bet365
