Big Portadown price isn't big enough

The home side has looked dangerous. They look poised to continue in their rich vein of form. If you like football you'll be buzzing when this delivers the goals it's likely to. But that doesn't mean there's anything exciting about the prices.

There's just 3 points between the two clubs as tenth place Ballymena get set to host 12th place Portadown.

The home side should prevail, on paper at least.

From the first whistle Ballymena will pressure Portadown. On the road the visitors have not always been at the races; they've lost 16 of their last 20 away trips. Their backline will be exposed here too.

These home players have found some form on their own patch. Ballymena scored three or more goals in 4 of their recent 15 home matches.

Portadown have not enjoyed some of their recent journeys. They actually conceded two or more goals in 16 of their last 20 away matches. If there are issues, maybe they have been compounded at the other end of the pitch. The visitors have not been able to rely on their goal-scorers in some of their recent engagements. They've been goalless in 10 of their last 18 matches.

They have done battle before. Ballymena have won 12 of the last 14 fixtures between the two teams. In terms of the previous meetings the head-to-head stats favour another home win.

Ballymena are justifiable favourites and it's possible they just don't give up any ground to Portadown. In which case the BTTS No bet seems like a decent side bet. Looking into the goal line, it's under 2.5 goals for this one given the latest prices.
