Harriers v Alfreton - the odds
8:00am Friday 22nd February 2013 in News
GIVEN that they failed to win any of their first ten matches, losing their opening five, it’s remarkable that just 22 games later Harriers are in title contention in third place and Stan James price them at 10/1 to clinch top spot.
Moreover, Harriers supporters will be encouraged by the fact that BetVictor rate their team at just 3/1 to gain promotion and they’re tipped to boost their chances in that department this weekend as they take on Alfreton.
Bet365 make Steve Burr’s troops 4/7 favourites to rack up another vital three points at the expense of the Reds, Stan James’ 5/1 outsiders and it’s 3/1 (bet365) to finish all square, as it did when the pair met at North Street back in September.
That match finished one-each, a repeat of which is a 7/1 shot at BetVictor on this occasion but Kidderminster have won four on the spin while the visitors have lost four of their last five so the formbook clearly points to Harriers.
Ladbrokes quote Burr’s men at 13/2 to grab the only goal for the second consecutive match and it’s 13/5 (bet365) for them to record any success by a one-goal margin.
However, given their winning streak some fans might fancy Kidderminster to enjoy a more comfortable afternoon.
Those punters are catered for in Stan James’ handicaps, where Harriers start a goal behind at odds of 6/4.
Alternatively, Skybet offer 6/1 about a 2-0 home win and the hosts are 11/8 (Coral) to be in front at the end of each half.
Finally, Kidderminster are 6/4 at Paddy Power to combine victory with a clean sheet and BetVictor mark 40/85 against Harriers breaking the deadlock.
