Thursday's Bet of the Day: A home win when Torquay host Cheltenham

With the Gulls boasting a formidable home record and Mark Yates' side disappointing on their travels, Phil Kitromilides is predicting a home win this evening
Having won the first leg 2-0 last week, Cheltenham hold a considerable advantage going into tonight's
match but will have to overcome a Torquay side with an excellent home record.

The Gulls have lost only one of their last 16 home matches and are priced at evens (2.00) with 188Bet to claim a win.

Cheltenham meantime are available at 12/5 (3.40) to record the victory which would guarantee their place at Wembley, but their recent record on their travels does not inspire confidence.

The team from Gloucestershire have lost six of their last seven away matches, with only eight teams in the division conceding more goals away from home.

This poor record on the road coupled with Torquay's strong
showing at home, make backing a home win a tempting prospect and the price of evens (2.00) which would see punters double their investment looks extremely generous.

For some slightly higher odds, try backing draw/Torquay in the half-time/full-time market at 7/2 (4.50).

The Gulls' last three home games have been stalemates at half time, and another repeat of this would surely see Torquay go for the win in the second half.
