Today’s Racing Post had a 72 page ‘ultimate betting guide to the 2008/9 season’
For the Ryman Premier, Dover Athletic are recommeded to win a second straight promotion at a best priced 7-1.
Guess who the paper picks their long shot alternatives – only Wealdstone FC. Who’d have believed it?. The paper says “Wealdstone have not played in the non league’s top division since 1988, but this season could be the start of a revival od the London club’s fortunes.
“The Stones have finally ended their 18 year search for a permanent home, and after making a host of summer signings they have been looking impressive in pre-season. A 3-1 victory over Watford reserves was the highlight for a team who look decent value at 33-1.” Get on!
The 33-1 is widely available (Corals, Power and Skybet). Sutton, Dover and Hornchurch are disputing favouritism. Below us in the betting are Tooting, Boreham Wood, Harlow and Harrow (all 40-1) and Margate the rank outsiders at 50-1.
Incidentally Jermaine is favourite to be the top scorer in league one and if you are interested, Chelmsford are picked to win the Blue Square South, and Corby are picked for the Southern League.
