Betting Tip: Forest Green @ 9/5 with skybet

Sometimes you look at the odds for a football match and they simply don’t make sense.

All season, there seems to be this consensus among the bookies that Grimsby Town are the best side in the National League and are simply underachieving by sitting third in the table.

The table doesn’t lie at this stage of the season, with the Mariners boasting the division’s leading scorer in Padraig Amond, although Paul Hurst’s side sit sixteen points behind tonight’s opponents having played three games less.

Indeed, Forest Green have amazing form at home. They have won fifteen of their eighteen matches at The New Lawn, with an average of two goals per home match and it has been eleven games without defeat for Adrian Pennock’s side.

Contrast this with Grimsby’s sketchy form which has meant they haven’t been able to keep pace with Cheltenham and Rovers at the top of the National League, even if they are comfortably clear of the chasing pack.

A 4-2 thrashing at the hands of Halifax last time out saw Town 3-0 down within half an hour and it’s the defence which will be a concern in this clash, even if Amond is usually good for a goal.

Grimsby also lost at Gateshead at the end of January and have managed just six wins from their fifteen games on the road. How can they be favourites away to the team with the best home record in the division?

We’ll go for the home side on the win and draw no bet market and hope to collect on both.
