Value for money

Post: # 377028Post hoppy »

These are the early odds for winning the National League (each way for finishing 1,2 or 3 is 1/4 of the odds).

Barnet. 7/1
Oldham. 10/1
FGR. 11/1
Southend. 11/1
Rochdale. 12/1
Solihull. 12/1
Sutton. 12/1
Dagenham. 12/1
Hartlepool. 12/1
AFC Fylde. 16/1
York. 16/1
Gateshead. 16/1
Halifax. 16/1
Altrincham. 16/1
Yeovil. 16/1
Aldershot. 28/1
Eastleigh. 40/1
Braintree. 40/1
Woking. 40/1
Ebbsfleet. 50/1
Boston. 66/1
Wealdstone. 66/1
Tamworth. 66/1
Maidenhead. 100/1

So the Mighty Bees are favourites! Wow! Who would have thought that three or four years ago? We have come a long way since those dark days. Take a bow Mr Brennan. And a cheeky curtsy from TK.

The odds this year show how open the NL is seen by both bookies and, I guess, the punters too.

In my humble opinion 7/1 is a decent offering given the fact we came 2nd last season and the positivity regarding the many signings we have made.

As for the other clubs I think Aldershot at 28/1 and Eastleigh at 40/1 might be worth an each way flutter. Also Woking at 40/1 is tempting.

It promises to be a very interesting season.

Good luck all.

Anyone have a comparison between last season's bookies odds and the final positions?

We finished 2nd last season. 1st and 3rd were promoted. Hardly rocket science to make us favourites.

Also long established EFL sides relegated tend to be favourites for promotion but neither of last season's 2 relegated sides fall into that category either.

Rochdale, Halifax, Hartlepool , Gateshead and FGR will all be up there, hopefully chasing us.

Well done to any Bees fans who took the 18/1 E/W.

Altrincham, Aldershot and Maidenhead all defied the odds of 100/1, whereas Boreham Wood, Woking, Rochdale and Oldham all under-performed bookies expectations.

These were the odds on 14th June 2023.

I’m very doubtful about the promotion credentials of the first three.

Good to see the Bookies think Weirdstone are relegation material. I think Boston and Braintree will be surprise packages, both have made some good signings
