Hyde v Harriers - the odds
8:00am Friday 15th February 2013 in News
Ryan Rowe fired a double when Kidderminster and Hyde locked horns at Aggborough, so he’s as good a bet as anyone at 9/2 with Bet365 to break the deadlock ahead of the reverse fixture this weekend.
Coral quote Rowe at 11/10 to notch at any time at Ewen Fields, where Steve Burr’s troops are rated as even money favourites for the points by Stan James and Ladbrokes quote hosts Hyde at 2/1 to dent Harriers’ Blue Square Premier play-off hopes.
It’s 13/5 via Betvictot to finish all square and 14/1 courtesy of William Hill to end two-apiece while Kidderminster can be backed at 1/2 in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market but having beaten the struggling Tigers once already this term, Harriers will head to Great Manchester in confident mood.
Supporters feeling equally optimistic can back a repeat of the 3-0 scoreline from that October meeting at 20/1 (Coral) but Hyde’s home advantage should ensure it’s a closer affair and bet365 post 3/1 against Burr’s men shading it by a one-goal margin.
More specifically, it’s 7/1 with Stan James for Kidderminster to grab the game’s only goal, Paddy Power offer 3/1 about Harriers combining victory with a clean sheet to prevail ‘to nil’ again and after they were quickly out of the blocks in the duo’s last clash, Betvictor’s 12/5 for Burr’s charges to be in front at the end of each half is expected to be popular.
Punters expecting a tight encounter finally, can tackle Skybet’s 6/5 for the two teams to conjure up fewer than three goals between them and it’s 8/11 courtesy of Betvictor for the first of those to come from a Kidderminster player.
