Newport - Bradford

Asian Handicap
Pick: Bradford +0.25AH
Odds: 1.87
Stake: 1

Match date: 09/03/2021

League Two

Bradford are on a great run of only 1 loss in 15 matches. They're priced a little high here, but maybe the bookies expect them to lose at some point. They started the season really badly so it's strange how they have suddenly hit this run.

Their top scorer Lee Novak is injured, but he has been injured throughout a lot of this run. Plus, at this level, i don't think it really matters as subs are generally as good as the first team anyway.

Newport started really well and were top of the league and looked to be on course for automatic promotion. Since December though, they have struggled and now they are in a fight to hold onto a play-off place. The truth is they have just 3 wins in their last 16 matches. They also have just the one win in their last 7 home matches, against rock bottom club Grimsby Town.

Their next 2 home matches, however, will be played at the Cardiff City Stadium due to their pitch at Rodney Parade not being up to standard. I guess that is what they're blaming the bad home run on. I don't see how playing in an unfamiliar ground can give them an extra advantage here. They're essentially playing this game at a neutral venue which may work in Bradford's favour if anything.

LOST Score: 2:1 Profit: -1
