National League: SOLIHULL - Woking  (min. odds: 2.20) 2 points

Solihull have only lost one of their last eight home games (2:1 vs Torquay, 3:1 vs Boreham Wood, 2:0 vs Southend, 1:0 vs Halifax, 0:0 vs Yeovil, 1:1 vs Wigan in the FA Cup after which the League One outfit found an extra-time winner, 0:2 to league leaders Chesterfield and, finally, 2:0 vs Grimsby), they have a couple of key players back from their respective injuries (it's great to see skipper Howe back in their central defence) and seem underrated here if you ask yours truly.

Woking have lost five of their last eight away games, three of their four games away at teams outside the bottom eight and are missing some key players today - first-choice striker Effiong is suspended, while two of their three first-choice midfielders (Kretzschmar and Ince) are both out injured (also, their first-choice keeper Ross is on the bench). All five games between these two teams from the last five years were home wins and, all things considered, anything better than 2.20 for the home win looks great to me.

(SOLIHULL - Woking  (2.45 @Pinnacle pre-mail - 2.21 @Pinnacle recorded odds - 2.12 @Pinnacle closing odds - 2.20 min. odds) 2 points  FT 2:0 (+2.42))

National League: BARNET - Maidenhead  (min. odds: 1.60) 3 points

Barnet have very much improved since Brennan took over, they've only lost one home game since the managerial change in mid-September (3:1 vs Weymouth, 0:0 vs Halifax, 0:3 to big spending Wrexham, 2:1 vs Aldershot, 2:1 vs Torquay), they've now won two consecutive home games and four of their last five National League games (2:1 at big spending Stockport, 2:1 vs Aldershot, 0:1 at Wealdstone, 2:1 vs Torquay, 2:1 at Woking), they have a perfect home record against teams below them on the league table (three games, all recent wins) and are looking more and more confident with each game. 

Maidenhead are the second worst away team in the league, no other National League team scored less goals on the road (only three goals scored in seven away games), they've conceded as many as fifteen goals in their three games in November, all defeats (4:7 at Halifax in the FA Cup, 1:4 to Dagenham, 0:4 at Boreham Wood), lost both four consecutive games and four consecutive away games, failed to score a single goal in their last five away games in the National League (0:1 at Notts County, 0:0 at Yeovil, 0:2 at Altrincham, 0:1 at Eastleigh, 0:4 at Boreham Wood) and they're far from being at full strength after a few cases of covid, which made them postpone their last couple of games. The likes of first-choice defenders Havilland and Sheckleford, first-choice midfielder Burley and key winger and joint top scorer Barratt are all still out and, all things considered, anything better than 1.60 for the home win looks great to me.

(BARNET - Maidenhead  (1.80 @Pinnacle pre-mail - 1.68 @Pinnacle recorded odds - 1.66 @Pinnacle closing odds - 1.60 min. odds) 3 points  FT 3:0 (+2.04))
