ROCHDALE are unbeaten at home so far this season, and they beat local rivals Bury last time out.
Torquay's most recent road trip, meanwhile, resulted in a 4-1 thumping at Fleetwood, and the Gulls don't exactly have a sparkling record at Spotland – they have lost on their last five visits up there and haven't won this fixture since April 2003.
Taking all this into account, it's no surprise that the hosts are favourites going into Saturday's match – they are priced at 9/10 with Stan James to win and at 13/2 with Betway to get the only goal of the game.
The draw is 5/2 with BetVictor.com, and Torquay fans travelling in hope can get 5/2 with Skybet that their team will turn the form book upside down and head home with all three points.
Stan James has priced a comprehensive 3-0 win for the visitors at 45/1, although BetVictor.com's 13/1 for 1-0 in Torquay's favour is likely to be more popular.
Paddy Power is offering 7/2 that Alan Knill's Devon side can keep a clean sheet. But the visitors have achieved only one shut-out in the league so far this season (at home to struggling Hartlepool), so the 4/5 at Betfred on there being three goals or more could be attractive to some. William Hill is offering 7/10 on both teams to score.
Those wanting to bet on a half-time/full-time combination can get 11/2 at Ladbrokes on the Gulls to be ahead at both 45 and 90 minutes, while Winner.com is pricing a half-time draw followed by a Torquay win at 15/2.
Torquay's late consolation at Fleetwood last weekend was scored by Elliot Benyon, and Bet365 is offering 15/2 that the same player will open the scoring on Saturday.
