Gillingham v Fleetwood Town Betting Tips: Trawlermen to keep their run going

These two sides have differing objectives with Gillingham looking to beat the drop to League Two whilst Fleetwood Town are still chasing automatic promotion to the Championship. Gillingham looked like they were recovering a couple of games ago when they picked up four points from a possible six. However, they’v since lost to Charlton which puts them back in the relegation dogfight, although they’re four points clear. Adrian Pennock’s side have been absolutely abysmal at the back and have the division’s worst defensive record with 76 conceded in 44 games. Additionally, they have not kept a clean sheet in any…

Bolton Wanderers v Bury Betting Tips: Good opportunity for Trotters

This Lancashire League One derby sees automatic promotion hopefuls Bolton Wanderers host relegation threatened Bury. Bolton have dropped off the pace in their last couple of games taking no points from a possible six in their quest for automatic promotion. However, with them having a four point cushion over Fleetwood Town, another Lancashire team, who are in 3rd, they should still be returning to the Championship via the top two. Defensive solidity has been the catalyst of the Trotters success this season and they have the best defensive record in the division having conceded just 36 goals in 43 games whilst…

Sheffield United v Bradford Betting Tips: Champions can do it again

This League One match should be an exciting affair as we see a Yorkshire derby between two sides toward the top of the table come head-to-head as division champions Sheffield United host play-off hopefuls Bradford. Sheffield United have stormed to the League One title this season after a terrific campaign, however, there are no signs of letting up and they will no doubt be looking to reach the 100-point mark. The Blades have been brilliant in the final third and have by far and away the best goal-scoring record in the division with 83 whilst they have also scored in…

Port Vale v Sheffield United Betting Tips: Blades to wrap up title in style

These two sides have had vastly different aims this season with Port Vale simply looking to survive in the division, something they’ve not yet completed, whilst Sheffield United, having already achieved promotion, are looking to claim the title as well and can do so here. Port Vale are facing a huge last few games as they look to keep hold of their League One status. However, they are currently just one point off safety and have a game in hand over rivals Gillingham. Having said that, they do not have any momentum following a run of three defeats in their…

Bury v Rochdale Betting Tips: High-scoring encounter expected at Gigg Lane

Thursday’s League One match sees two teams who are out of form go head-to-head as Bury host Rochdale – a big game for both. Until a couple of weeks ago, Bury looked like they were pulling clear of trouble after losing just one of ten matches. However, they have now suffered two defeats on the bounce and have been dragged back into the relegation dogfight, sitting just one point above the drop-zone with a game out of hand on Port Vale who occupy the final relegation spot. If they lose here, it could spell real trouble. Defence is once again…

Oldham Athletic v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Low-scoring affair anticipated at Boundary Park

This League One clash could be a rather tight affair as two of the division’s best defences come head-to-head. Oldham are currently having a pretty bad time at the moment and, after looking like they would go on to comfortably secure safety, have now failed to win any of their last three, putting them just two points above the drop-zone. As mentioned above, despite the fact they are struggling against relegation, the Lactics have actually been brilliant at the back this season and have the fourth-best defensive record in League One with just 42 goals conceded in 41 games as…

Rochdale v Port Vale Betting Tips: Dale to get back to winning ways

Having failed to win either of their last two fixtures, Rochdale have fallen behind in the race for the coveted play-offs; however, fortunately for them, on Tuesday night they’re presented with a home fixture against a team who’ve been dreadful on their travels this season and thus have the perfect opportunity to bounce back. A home match against Port Vale really isn’t a daunting task, and, therefore, Rochdale – a team who’ve thrived at home so far this season, really ought to have enough about them to get back on track. The two bets that catch the eye are ‘Rochdale…

Southend United v Bolton Betting Tips: Goals for both teams at Roots Hall

These two teams are both looking to get promoted to the Championship this season, Southend through the play-offs and Bolton via the automatic spots. Southend are on a fantastic run at the moment having taken maximum points from their last four games. This means they are 6th in the table, three points ahead of Millwall in 7th whilst they also have a game in hand over Bradford City and Scunthorpe United in fourth and fifth respectively to help secure their play-off spot. The Shrimpers have been fantastic in both boxes during that aforementioned run of four wins on the bounce…

Peterborough v Charlton Athletic Betting Tips: Posh to win back-to-back

This League One clash is between two sides who are both likely to once again be playing in the division next season with relegation not threatening either them whilst play-off hopes have all but vanished. After a run of three defeats on the spin, Peterborough have now gone on a three-match unbeaten run. Having said that, it must also be mentioned that they have won only one of those matches, although it was the last one so confidence should be relatively high. Posh matches often contain goals at both ends of the pitch with the team having scored 55 goals…

Bradford City v Walsall Betting Tips: Bantams to bounce back at Valley Parade

This League One match sees play-off hopefuls Bradford City host Walsall, whose own play-off campaign has now faltered. Bradford’s seven-match unbeaten run came to an end last time out after they lost away at fellow play-off occupiers Scunthorpe United in a high-scoring match – which I tipped! This result meant that Scunthorpe leapfrogged Bradford into 4th place, however, The Bantams are still six points ahead of 7th place and will be confident they can retain their top six spot. Although they shipped three goals at Glanford Park in their last match, defensively, Bradford have been very good with just 39…

AFC Wimbledon v Rochdale Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at Kingsmeadow

This match sees mid-table sitters AFC Wimbledon host Rochdale, who are looking to regain their play-off place. Wimbledon have dropped off the pace in this latter part of the season with no real chance of them going up or down. Their run of just one win in their last five means they currently sit 13th in the table. However, given they are a newly promoted team, they have done remarkably well. Goals have been the Dons’ main problem in the last few matches and they have failed to score in three of their last four games. Defensively, they have not…

Scunthorpe United v Bradford City Betting Tips: No shortage of goals at Glanford Park

Sunday’s League One match, Sky Sports once again showing their compassion for mothers on Mothers Day, is a play-off clash between Scunthorpe United and Bradford City. One of these sides could easily drop out the top six in their final seven games if they are not careful. Scunthorpe were in automatic promotion contention a couple of months back but a run of just one win since 28th January and five defeats in their last six mean they have slipped right down the pecking order into 5th and are now only inside the play-offs by four points. Where the Iron have…

Oldham v Sheffield United Betting Tips: Goals expected to arrive at Boundary Park

Having managed to get themselves in a commanding position at the top of League One, Sheffield United will be looking to extend their six point lead when they travel to take on Oldham at the weekend. However, the hosts are not the easiest of teams to beat so this may not be as straightforward as many expect. Although the visitors are currently something of a dominant force in this division, they’ve shown a few signs of weakness in recent times, particularly at the back. At the prices, backing Sheffield United to come out on top simply cannot be justified. There…

Bury v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Both teams can profit going forward at Gigg Lane

Ahead of this League One fixture, Fleetwood, despite playing away from home, have been installed as the favourites and, based on their exploits so far this season, rightly so. Having said that, Bury are a rejuvenated side and are not to be taken lightly. Over the last few weeks, both of these sides have recorded a number of impressive results, particularly in their respective home and away matches. With this in mind, it would be no surprise whatsoever if both put in a good performance here. There are two bets that stand out and these are ‘Both Teams to Score’…

Shrewsbury v Bolton Betting Tips: Trotters to come out on top at New Meadow

Much like in Swindon’s clash with Millwall these two sides are fighting for different aims in the league with Shrewsbury looking to avoid the drop whilst Bolton Wanderers are eyeing an immediate return to the Championship. Shrewsbury are having a bad time at the moment with no wins in their last three. The most damaging of these results came last time out away at relegation rivals Port Vale which Shrewsbury lost 2-1, meaning they are now only two points above the drop-zone in 20th and a game out of hand on Port Vale who occupy the last place in the…

Swindon Town v Millwall Betting Tips: Lions to Roar once again

These two League One sides have very different battles going on at the moment with home side Swindon Town simply looking to survive whilst Millwall are chasing the play-offs. Swindon are having a torrid time at the moment and have lost their last four matches on the bounce, putting them down in 22nd, seven points off survival and with a game out of hand. The Robins have been pretty poor in both boxes over the course of the season with just 40 scored and 59 conceded in their 39 games. However, they have had their goal-scoring boots on in more…

Coventry v Bristol Rovers Betting Tips: Pirates to take three points at Ricoh

Coventry surprised many, including myself, when getting the better of Port Vale during the week; however, beating play-off chasers Bristol Rovers will be a much harder task. After some pleasing results in recent times, the visitors really ought to have enough about them to come out on top. As they’re just three points off that coveted 6th place, Rovers are still in with a shout of securing a place in the play-offs but need to continue picking up wins if they’re to maintain their challenge. A match, albeit away from home, against a team who’re already down, provides the visiting…

Oxford v Bolton Betting Tips: Goals at both ends on the cards at Kassam

The Kassam Stadium is the setting for two teams who’re chasing promotion on Tuesday night as play-off seeking Oxford host automatic contenders Bolton. Having fought back late in the day to overcome Northampton at the weekend, Bolton managed to cling on to their automatic promotion spot for another week. If they’re to cement their position inside the top two, Phil Parkinson’s men can’t really afford to drop many points, especially with Fleetwood hot on their heels. However, an away match against Oxford is a tough task for any team in this division, as play-off contenders Scunthorpe found out at the…

Coventry City v Port Vale Betting Tips: Brown’s men the team to side with

Two teams who currently reside in the drop-zone go head-to-head on Tuesday night as Port Vale travel to face Coventry City at the Ricoh Arena. The hosts are already dead and buried but Port Vale, having added crucial points to their tally in recent weeks, are on the verge of hauling themselves out of trouble. The visitors are now just two points from safety with two games in hand over the team directly above them. Considering that Coventry have already been condemned to relegation, this is an excellent opportunity for Port Vale to put valuable points on the board. At…

Rochdale v Millwall Betting Tips: Tight game expected at Spotland

These two League One sides are currently outside the play-off places but will still feel they have a chance of being in the top six come the end of the season. Rochdale were in the play-off positions until a few weeks ago when their poor run of no wins in 11 matches in all competitions. However, they managed to finally win a game last time out against Gillingham and now sit seven points outside the play-offs with a couple of games in hand over various other teams. Defence has been a huge problem for The Dale in recent times and…

Millwall v Bury Betting Tips: Visitors to struggle in the Lions Den

These two sides may be at opposite ends of League One but they are both in very good form and so this could be an interesting match-up. Millwall have managed to break into the play-off places after a brilliant run of recent form which has seen them go unbeaten in their last 14 league matches. Defensive solidity has been the Lions’ best asset this season, particularly in 2017, and the recent goal they conceded in their win against Milton Keynes Dons was only the fourth they’ve conceded in League One during this calendar year, despite playing 11 matches. The fact…

Port Vale v Shrewsbury Betting Tips: Honours to be even at Vale Park

This League Two duo are both battling against the drop and so this match is extremely vital to both of these team’s survival hopes. Port Vale were in and around the play-offs at the beginning of the season but have since fallen off the wagon and are now inside the bottom four and five points off safety following a run of just one win in their last 12 league games. The back-line has been the Valiants’ main problem in recent times and they have only kept one clean sheet in all competitions in 2017. Going forward, they may have one…

Scunthorpe v Rochdale Betting Tips: Both teams to profit going forward at Glanford Park

Having set the pace in League One – and looked like a cert for automatic promotion in doing so – right up until Christmas, Scunthorpe have hit something of a road-block in recent weeks and are now without a win in nine matches. If Rochdale weren’t a side who’re also struggling to win games, you could say that this is a decent opportunity for the visitors to get a result. These two teams may be out-of-form at this moment in time, but they’re still managing to produce both goals and entertaining games, and, as they now face each other, more…

Bury v Bristol Rovers Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at Gigg Lane

This League One match is between two sides at opposite ends of the table as survival hopefuls Bury host play-off chasers Bristol Rovers. Bury may not have won in two matches but they have certainly turned a corner since the arrival of Lee Clark into the managerial hotseat with just one defeat in his first five matches in charge, winning three of them. This good run has boosted them up to 19th and three points clear of the drop-zone. The Shakers undoubtedly focus on the top end of the field and their record of 54 scored is the fourth-best in…

Coventry City v Southend Betting Tips: Sky Blues to come off second best again

This League One match sees relegation-certainties Coventry City take on play-off hopefuls Southend United. Coventry are in a mess both on and off the field and recently appointed their former manager Mark Robins in place of Russell Slade to try and deal with the problems. Of course this made no difference at the weekend as Coventry lost 2-0 at home to Bradford City and will probably not make any difference for the rest of this season. The Sky Blues have been woeful in both boxes this season with just 30 goals scored (second-lowest) and 56 conceded (fifth-worst) in 36 matches.…

Fleetwood v Bolton Betting Tips: Rosler’s men to continue promotion march

These two League One sides are both aiming for automatic promotion this season and play-offs at the very least. Fleetwood currently occupy that precious second spot, however, Bolton have two games in hand and are only four points behind. Fleetwood are one of the most in form sides in the country having gone on a fantastic run of no defeats in their last 18 in the league, notching four wins on the bounce. Uwe Rosler’s men have been fantastic at the back and have the second-best defensive record in the division with just 32 conceded in 35 matches. Additionally, they…

Oldham v Bury Betting Tips: Both Teams can get on the score-sheet at Boundary Park

This League One duo were both stuck in the relegation zone a few weeks ago but, after some good results in recent times, they have managed to drag themselves above the dotted line. Oldham suffered their first defeat in five matches last time out as they lost 2-0 away at Walsall. However, they are still three points above the drop-zone and a win against Bury on Saturday will no doubt put them back on the right track. As mentioned on previous tips on the Lactics, they have been excellent at the back and that loss against Walsall last weekend was…
