Newport v Harriers - the odds
8:00am Friday 1st February 2013 in News
Kidderminster tightened their grip on a top five berth in midweek with a 1-0 victory over Telford and Steve Burr’s men have subsequently been cut to 14/1 by Stan James to clinch the Blue Square Premier title while bet365 post a slightly more realistic-looking 6/1 against them securing promotion to League Two.
They’ll certainly face a test of their mettle in that department this weekend as they visit fellow high-flyers Newport and indeed it’s the Exiles, aided by home advantage, that are favourites for the points at 11/8 courtesy of BetVictor.
Stan James make Kidderminster 85/40 to leapfrog County in the table by collecting a maximum haul but the price sure to lure the neutrals is BetVictor’s 5/2 for the spoils to be shared.
Similarly, William Hill’s 1-1 scoreline quote of 6/1 is set to prove popular, alongside Skybet’s 9/2 for both halves to end level and there’s also bet365’s 6/5, chalked against Harriers in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market for those travelling supporters worried about the potential for a stalemate.
Stan James rate Burr’s charges at 4/7 to avoid defeat but a sequence of ten league wins in a dozen attempts means fans are entitled to be a touch more positive and they can back their team at 15/4 (bet365) to edge it by a one-goal margin.
Paddy Power chalk the clash up at 8/11 to generate at least three goals and they’re 10/1 with Ladbrokes to be shared two to one in favour of Kidderminster, although more ambitious punters might fancy Coral’s 28/1 for a repeat of the 3-2 victory from December’s reverse fixture at Aggborough. BetVictor meanwhile, offer 21/20 about the game’s opener arriving courtesy of any Harriers player.
