The Betpal Football Bet of the Day drops into the Blue Square Premier on Tuesday, with a bet in the Gateshead v Grimsby clash. The Mariners have moved to the top of the table and are looking to regain their Football League status – can the Tynesiders halt their progress?
Match: Gateshead v Grimsby
Bet of the Day: Back Grimsby Draw No Bet
Best Odds: 1.73 with SkyBet
Kick Off: 19:45 08/01/2013 (GMT)
This fixture sees two stubborn sides going head to head. Gateshead have lost just two at home, while Grimsby have only been beaten once on the road. They both see a lower than average number of goals per game and boast decent defensive records. A low scoring draw might appeal then, but the Mariners are on a strong run, putting together a run of five wins in the last eight, and they have also won five of nine away at teams in the bottom half of the table – losing none. Gateshead have failed to beat any side in the top seven (in eight attempts), and after bizarrely facing six away games in a row, they lost 0-1 to Barrow on their return to the International Stadium. Siding with Grimsby with the stake returned on a draw, looks a prudent option.
