Competition: National League
Market: Sutton United wins
Odds: 7/5 @ 888sport
Sutton smells a real chance to climb to the top of the National League, and travels to Meadow Lane Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Notts County may have opened 2021 with their goal of landing a play-off spot this season, Nottinghamshire clothing has pretty worryingly fallen off the boil. Now in a really upward battle, the Magpies could only come from behind to grab a point away at Altrincham over the weekend. They have gained a reputation for their problems on the back, they have really struggled to find their feet under the new boss Ian Burchnall. Faced with what should be another tough test at Meadow Lane on Tuesday night, Notts have managed to collect just a few points from their last six National League matchups, a race dating back to April 5th. It should also be noted that Tuesday’s hosts, along with a 1-0 loss to Eastleigh last time at home, have lost three of their last four matchups in Nottinghamshire.
In terms of visitors, while Notts County may continue on an expanded groove, Sutton should find the mood in their camp at a really high level. Knowing that this week’s win will see them leap Torquay back to the top of the table, many have tipped the U’s as the leading challenger in the title race. Matt Grey’s side, who jumped back from the 1-0 defeat to Eastleigh last month, were last seen at the weekend picking up a routine win at home. Landing a 3-1 win over Aldershot in Surrey, Sutton have amassed nine points from their last four National League matchups. When we smell a golden chance to put another marker and move one step closer to a football league spot for next season, we back up a win for Grey’s title providers in midweek.
Bet: Sutton United 7/5 to beat Notts County in Tuesday’s National League showdown @ 888sport
