Our Thursday Betting tip comes from the Blue Square Premier League, where lowly Gateshead host Newport. The Welsh side are in the thick of the hunt for promotion into the football League, can they overcome a hectic schedule to claim the points?
Match: Gateshead v Newport County
Betting tip: Lay Newport
Best Odds: 2.0 with Betfair
Kick Off: 19:45 28/03/2013 (GMT)
Fixture congestion sees some Blue Square Premier sides playing on Thursday evening, having only played 48 hours earlier on Tuesday. Both Gateshead and Newport are in the same boat, but Gateshead played Grimsby at home on Tuesday (drawing 1-1), while Newport travelled to Southport. The Welsh side are now back on the road to face the side from the North East, and that travel will do them no favours. Gateshead are also re-establishing some strong home form, having only lost four of seventeen games on their own patch. Their last four games have seen them record three wins prior to the draw versus Grimsby, and they recorded good victories over both Hereford, and leaders Kidderminster in recent weeks. Newport do have a strong away record, but the travel coupled with the form of their hosts, make them an easy lay at even money.
