Odds for 22/23

Post by Alfie » Thu Jul 21, 2022 2:56 pm

Just had a look at NLN odds for coming season. William Hill have us fourth favourite at 9/1, behind favourites Flylde, Kidderminster and Brackley.

Think that is rather optimistic, I don't think I'll be investing anything at those odds.

They also have Scarbourough as favourites to go down.

11/1 on Bet 365.
The same 3 in front of us in the odds.

Bookies will always have us shorter than our actual relative chance purely because we have a larger fanbase than most of the competition so they're likely to lay more bets on us than other sides.

Same reason England are usually in the top 2 or 3 in the betting for major tournaments when prior to the Southgate era they've rarely been competitive.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

The lower down the pyramid, the more the bookies favour clubs with bigger followings, for exactly this reason.


That said, if Darlington avoid injuries or get sufficient loanees in, then a play off place is a realistic expectation The squad is small, but good quality
