Barnet vs Dover Predictions and Betting Tips: National League Preview

Barnet vs Dover predictions and betting tips for the televsied National League match on Saturday 22nd December with an anytime goalscorer prediction included.

Expert Tipster Prediction: Barnet may be the sole representative of the National League in the third round of the FA Cup but they’ve been in poor form domestically recently and have lost four of the last five games. Managerless Hartlepool are the only side that have been beaten by the Bees but this fixture looks winnable for John Stills men. However, Andy Hessenthaler has had an impact since arriving in Kent and his Dover side are on an excellent run of form. The former Gillingham boss has lost just three of his first nine games in charge and they should be able to get something from this fixture. They are playing with confidence and they are unlucky to head back south with nothing to show for it.

Barnet vs Dover Predictions

Barnet are one of the streakiest sides in the National League and John Still’s men are currently enduring one of their barren patches. The Bees won five in a row at the end of August/start of September before winning just two of their next eight games. They have lost four of the last five coming into this fixture and their 1-0 defeat at Ebbsfleet was particularly disappointing last time out. They’ve conceded seven goals in their last three matches at the Hive and they’ve been desperately disappointing at the back in recent weeks. In contrast, Dover have the fourth best form in the National League and Andy Hessenthaler has certainly improved their fortunes of late. They’ve remained unbeaten in three of their five away games since the new boss took over from Chris Kinnear and he’s breathed some life into the team since his arrival. They will be looking to make it four wins in five with a victory here and they’ll be confident of getting something. They held impressive Eastleigh to a 2-2 draw in recent weeks and they are a decent price to take all three points here. We’re opting to play it safe here and use the double chance market. We’re backing Dover to leave North London with something to show for their efforts. It is the first of our Barnet vs Dover predictions for Saturday lunchtime.

Barnet vs Dover Betting Tips

One of the first things that Andy Hessenthaler did upon his arrival in Kent was improve the potency of his forward line. He’s given his strikers confidence and they’re suddenly scoring goals again. They may only have scored 25 times this season but 12 of those goals have come since he was appointed in early October. There is still work to do at the back and the club have only kept two clean sheets in their last 14 games. Barnet are struggling for form but they do tend to score goals and they’ve only failed to find the net twice at home so far this campaign. It ended 2-2 here last time they met and both sides found the back of the net last season as well. Both Teams to Score? Yes looks like a decent bet here and is the second of our Barnet vs Dover betting tips.

One man who has certainly benefitted from a change of regime is Inih Effiong. The 27-year old hadn’t found the net prior to October 13th but he’s netted seven times since then. He’s scored in each of his last four National League games and looks full of confidence. He could add to his tally here. He’ll be targetting double figures by the start of 2019 and he could get some joy against a Barnet defence which has looked a little disorganised in recent weeks. He is the third of our Barnet vs Dover predictions for this televised tie on BT Sport.

What is the best price on Inih Effiong to score anytime? 100/30 with Betway

Barnet vs Dover Match Preview

This fixture should contain a few goals according to the statistics. There have been seven goals in the last two meetings between the pair and that trend should continue. Our betting tips suggest that Both Teams to Score? Yes is a good way of playing at Evens and many punters will be tempted by Over 2.5 Goals which is priced at 43/40. It would have landed in three of the last four for Dover and three of the last five for Barnet. Combining these two selections – Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score is priced at 6/4 with Coral. 

Dover’s upturn in form could tempt many people to back them. They aren’t acca material but look an attractive price at 15/4 to take all three points. They are also 9/4 on the Draw No Bet market.
