Competition: National League
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Hoping to find a boost on their travels in midweek, Wrexham will make the trip to the Recreation Ground when they face off against Aldershot on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, suffering late heartbreak on the road on Saturday, Aldershot find themselves in the midst of what is a real National League crisis. While the Blues might have managed to extend on their fifth-tier status with time to spare last season, Mark Molesley’s side are now tipped as one of the leading relegation picks this time around. Last seen over the weekend when getting hit with a late 2-1 defeat away at Barnet, the Hampshire-based outfit are already four points adrift of safety. Gaining a reputation for their worrying issues at the back, Aldershot have lost each of their last five matchups across all formats. With that run highlighted by a shock FA Cup departure against lower league Bowers & Pitsea, it should be noted that 10 of their previous 12 contests have finished with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, while Wrexham might have put in a rugged display away at League Two outfit Harrogate over the weekend on FA Cup duties, they too suffered late heartbreak on the road. Shipping a pair of late goals and seeing their adventure come to an end, the Reds are a side who are seeking some stability. While they might have received a real boost off the pitch earlier in the year, Phil Parkinson’s men find themselves in a real uphill battle to secure a play-off spot this season. Last seen on fifth-tier duties playing out a 1-1 draw against Torquay on home soil, the former Sunderland boss has seen his side win just a pair of their last eight matchups across all formats, a run that stems back to September 18th. It should be noted, with all of their away fixtures since opening the 2021/22 campaign finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Aldershot vs Wrexham 4/11 for Tuesday’s National League matchup @ 888sport
