TipMan’s Acca of the Day
Lazio v AC Milan
Over 1.5 goals
Seria A action here in what looks like an exciting game, the last five head to head meetings between the two sides have all resulted in over 1.5 match goals. The visitors AC Milan do have the advantage based on form and the last five head to head meetings, however Lazio don’t tend to give them a easy game and we are expecting plenty of goals.
Chesterfield v Altrincham
Chesterfield to win
4th place Chesterfield host 10th place Altrincham at the Technique Stadium, the hosts Chesterfield come into the game in really good, winning four of their last five league games. Altrincham don’t come into the game in awful form themselves, however we think with home advantage Chesterfield should get all three points. Chesterfield have averaged a very impressive 2.5 points per game at home this season, while Altrincham have struggled on the road only managing to average 0.92 points.
Solihull Moors v Notts County
Over 2.5 goals
League leaders Notts County visit Solihull Moors in what could be a interesting game, although the visitors Notts County are flying in the league the head the head record between the two sides is quite close, with the hosts Solihull Moors winning one, drawing two and the league leaders Notts County winning two. Notts County have been involved in four games involving over 2.5 goals in their last five league games, the hosts Altrincham have also been involved in four from five.
Hereford v Chester
Over 1.5 goals
Promotion hopeful Chester visit Hereford FC in another game which could be quite close, the hosts Hereford FC come into the game in better form, although they are six places below Chester in the league table. The head to head results are very close too, with the hosts having the advantage winning three of the last five head to head meetings, while the visitors Chester have won two. Over -.5 goals probability sits at 80% based on games played this season.
