Competition: National League
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 2/5 @ 888sport
Hoping to extend their stay in the play-off spots on Tuesday night, Solihull Moors will make the trip to the Silverlake Stadium when they face off against Eastleigh.
Starting with the hosts, while Eastleigh might have shocked many across the National League with their eye-catching boost last month, the Spitfires came crashing back down to earth last weekend. Marking their return from an extended break, Ben Strevens’ side put in a nightmare display on home soil. Eventually getting hit with a 3-0 drumming against Aldershot at the Silverlake Stadium, the Blues almost find themselves sat in fifth-tier limbo. Knowing that they’re in a real uphill battle if they’re to try and mount a play-off charge this season, Eastleigh will be hoping to find a similar level that saw them claim back-to-back victories against Dagenham & Redbridge and Notts County prior to their break. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, all bar one of Eastleigh’s home fixtures since opening the 2021/22 campaign have finished with over 1.5 goals.
As for the visitors, putting in what was a rampant display over the weekend, Solihull Moors will certainly find the mood in their camp at a real high. Looking to extend their buffer in the play-off spots on Tuesday night, Neal Ardley’s men were last seen landing a 4-0 romp away at Maidenhead. Bouncing back from their November blip, the Moors have won each of their last three National League contests on the spin. With that run also highlighted by a 2-0 win against Grimsby at Damson Park, the midweek guests will also be boosted by their most recent meeting against Eastleigh. Claiming a deserved 2-0 victory when the two sides last faced off in May, Ardley’s side will be smelling a chance here. With each of their previous six matchups finishing with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome in midweek.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Eastleigh vs Solihull Moors 2/5 for Tuesday’s National League showdown @ 888sport
