Mansfield v Harriers - the odds
8:00am Friday 11th January 2013 in News
The 2-0 victory over Barrow was Kidderminster’s eighth Blue Square Premier success in nine outings but bookies expect the Harriers momentum to be checked at Field Mill, where hosts Mansfield are BetVictor’s 29/20 favourites to get the better of Steve Burr’s men.
Bet365 rate Kidderminster at 15/8 to rack up yet another win while Stan James post 12/5 against the stalemate, William Hill price a 1-1 scoreline at 6/1 and Ladbrokes offer 9/2 about both halves finishing all square.
Fans that believe the Stags strength at home can cancel out Harriers’ excellent form can also head to the handicaps, where bet365 give Burr’s charges a goal start at odds of 8/15 and as an alternative there’s also Stan James’ 21/20 marked against Kidderminster in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
The corresponding fixture last season finished 3-0 in favour of Harriers but it would take a confident supporter to back a repeat at odds of 28/1 with Skybet. More realistic, in a contest that’s odds-on at 4/5 (William Hill) to generate three or more goals, is a 2-1 Kidderminster triumph, rated by BetVictor at 9/1 and Paddy Power make the visitors 11/2 to emerge victorious following an even first period.
Elsewhere, Stan James offer odds of 8/11 about both teams finding the net and it’s 11/10 via Skybet for Kidderminster to be the first team to do so. Jamille Matt meanwhile, is 9/2 courtesy of bet365 to follow up last week’s strike against Barrow by breaking the deadlock in this one and BetVictor quote the Harriers front man at 11/10 to get on the scoresheet at any stage.
