Swindon Town v Gillingham Betting Tips: Teams to be evenly matched at County Ground

Two League One relegation candidates come head-to-head on Tuesday night as Swindon Town take on Gillingham. After losing five matches on the spin and scoring just one goal in the process, it looked like things were a mess both on and off the pitch for Swindon. However, they have now managed to pick up four points in their last two games, meaning they are now just three points off survival. Furthermore, the fact those points were taken from relegation rivals is hugely important. They may have scored three goals last time out but The Robins have generally been poor in…

Rochdale v Port Vale Betting Tips: Dale can resume winning ways at Spotland

These two sides were sitting in the upper echelons of League One toward the start of the campaign but now find themselves 10 places apart with Rochdale still looking to put up a fight for the play-offs whilst Port Vale are simply looking to survive. Although they will still feel they have a chance of reaching the top six, Rochdale have dropped off quite a bit recently with just one win in eight league matches in 2017. The Dale had been quite comfortable in those play-off places a few months ago but are now five points off 6th. Rochdale were…

Walsall v Chesterfield Betting Tips: Good opportunity for Saddlers to bounce back

As they currently sit in 12th position, Walsall fans probably aren’t overjoyed with the way things have gone this season. The Saddlers are one of many League One teams whose campaign has been blighted by inconsistency. However, they’ve looked good at home in recent weeks so, if they can put together a run of results, they’ve still got an outside chance of making the play-offs, although it is a big ask. Luckily for them, a match against relegation-bound Chesterfield is likely to yield three points and might just act as a springboard for a late surge towards the top six.…

Scunthorpe v AFC Wimbledon Betting Tips: The Iron to regain winning thread

In recent weeks, Scunthorpe have gone from looking a shoo-in for automatic promotion to struggling to maintain their position inside the top two. Having said this, The Iron welcome a Wimbledon side who’ve found life tough on the road to Glanford Park on Tuesday night and can get back on track. Having set the pace in League One for a long time, it seems strange that Scunthorpe have been reeled in by the play-off pack lately, but it’s a funny old game. Graham Alexander’s side are now seven points behind league leaders Sheffield United, although they do have a game…

Bolton Wanderers v Bristol Rovers Betting Tips: Promotion chasing Bolton to bounce back

These two League One sides are both chasing promotion this season, Bolton through the automatic spots and Bristol Rovers through the play-offs. Bolton are currently 4th in the table and just three points off the automatic spots thanks to a run which has seen them lose just once in their last five league matches and even that came against table toppers Sheffield United. In their glory days under Sam Allardyce, Wanderers were exceptionally good defensively and that has been the case again in League One this season as they have the best defensive record in the division with just 27…

Bury v Coventry City Betting Tips: Visitors look dead and buried

Having turned things around of late, Bury, a team who were majorly on the slide not so long ago, look to have been presented with the ideal opportunity to continue their good form when playing host to Coventry City at Gigg Lane on Tuesday night. As things currently stand in League One, Coventry are seemingly dead and buried. With 33 matches gone, the visitors are rooted firmly to the foot of the table and sit a massive 11 points from safety. Even with the game in hand that Russel Slade’s men have, it’s virtually impossible to feel optimistic about their…

Bristol Rovers v Scunthorpe United Betting Tips: Visitors to come out on top

These two sides are looking for promotion this season but it seems that away side and 2nd place Scunthorpe United are much more likely to achieve their aim rather than hosts Bristol Rovers who sit in 11th. It was certainly ambitious from Bristol Rovers to look for a third successive promotion this season but in all likelihood it was never going to happen. They were making a good fist of it at the start of the season and it looked like it could rekindle a few weeks ago but they have now drawn too many recent games to be considered…

Oldham Athletic v Millwall Betting Tips: Lack of goals on that cards at Boundary Park

These two League One sides are in excellent form, albeit at opposite ends of the table, with survival hopefuls Oldham Athletic taking on play-off chasers Millwall. A couple of months ago it looked like Oldham would really be struggling to stay in League One but now, after three wins in their last five, they have managed to climb out of the relegation zone and up to 19th. The Lactics may still only be one point away from the drop-zone but, if they continue their winning ways, they should be fine. Goals have been and still are a problem for Oldham…

Gillingham v AFC Wimbledon Betting Tips: Goals at both ends likely at Priestfield

Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon are two teams who’ve been plagued by inconsistency over the course of this season. On their day both are capable of mixing it as this level, but the pair have failed to put their best foot forward far too often hence why they find themselves well down the table in 18th and 15th respectively. The one thing that has remained constant for both, particularly since the turn of the year, is the inability to keep clean sheets. Keeping this in mind, the bet that stands out here is ‘Both Teams to Score’. While neither side may…

Charlton Athletic v Oxford United Betting Tips: Yellows to go well at The Valley

These two sides are currently lodged in mid-table but will both feel that, if they can put some sort of miraculous run together, then they can reach the play-offs. Unfortunately for Charlton, that run really does not look like putting itself together any time soon with no wins in their last four matches which means they are a rather large eight points off the top six. Karl Robinson’s side may have scored three goals in their last match away at Rochdale but actually they have had real problems in front of goal so far this campaign. Before that match against…

Peterborough v Southend Betting Tips: Goals on the cards at ABAX

Despite losing their most recent match at Walsall, play-off chasing Peterborough are still only three points off where they want to be and will feel they can still make the top six come the end of the season. As mentioned on my tip for their match against Walsall, Peterborough have had the same identity under all of their recent managers and it is no different under former player Grant McCann. The Posh have played 32, scoring 45 times but conceding 39 with just seven clean sheets. Peterborough managed to snatch a win against Shrewsbury Town in their last game at…

Millwall v Chesterfield Betting Tips: Lions to keep roaring at The Den

This League One match sees two teams heading in different directions take each other on as Millwall host Chesterfield at The Den. Millwall continued their giant-killing exploits in the FA Cup on Saturday as they knocked out Premier League champions Leicester City. They have proved that the cup can be helpful to league form as the Lions are currently only outside the play-offs on goal difference thanks to a run of 10 without defeat in the league. Defence has been Neil Harris’ side’s strong point and they have not conceded a goal in their last six matches in all competitions…

Walsall v Peterborough Betting Tips: Hosts to come out on top at Bescot

These two sides are both fighting for a play-off place in League One season. They both face a bit of a fight to claim a spot in the top six but will feel equally confident that they can do so. Walsall are on a pretty decent run at the moment with just one defeat in their last seven matches. However, too many of those games have ended in draws which means the Saddlers are 12th and seven points off the play-offs having played a game more. Having said that, with so many games to go, they will feel confident of…

MK Dons v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Rosler’s men can maintain unbeaten run

An inconsistent MK Dons outfit play host to the seemingly unbeatable Fleetwood at Stadium mk on Saturday afternoon – a match that could see the visitors stretch their unbeaten run to 16. MK Dons’ have been blighted with inconsistency this season and have failed to get a decent run going at any point. Failing to win with regularity has ultimately cost Robbie Nielson’s side any hopes of obtaining a place in the play-offs. On the other hand, Fleetwood’s promotion challenge is alive and well. And The Cod Army will be entering this match in good spirits having got the better…

AFC Wimbledon v Coventry Betting Tips: Visitors poor season to continue at Kingsmeadow

If AFC Wimbledon were looking for an opportunity to regain that all important winning feeling (which of course they are), then that’s exactly what they’ve found here. As Coventry look destined to be plying their trade in the fourth tier of English football next season, this is a must win for the hosts. They may have only taken two points from a possible nine recently in League One, but AFC Wimbledon haven’t exactly had the easiest run and could hardly wish for a better opportunity in front of their own fans, where they’ve actually performed pretty well this season. Backing…

Oldham v Charlton Betting Tips: Latics to continue their revival

Two sides in relatively decent form come head-to-head here as survival hopefuls Oldham Athletic host midtable Charlton Athletic. Oldham have managed to win three out of their last five league matches and have thus pulled themselves out of the relegation zone. Going forward has been the major problem for the Lactics for a while and their 3-2 victory against fellow relegation scrappers Coventry City was the first time they scored three goals in a league match since March 2016. With that sort of statistic, it is no surprise that Oldham are bottom of the League One goal-scoring charts with just…

Fleetwood v Bradford City Betting Tips: Honours to be even at Highbury

Two play-off chasing teams come head-to-head on Tuesday night as Fleetwood Town host Bradford City at Highbury Stadium. Fleetwood currently sit 4th in the table and have not lost in 14 league matches, making them the division’s most in-form team. However, they have fallen into a bit of a trap at the moment as they have drawn their last three games on the bounce. Most managers would probably prefer to be winning and losing than simply drawing, but remaining unbeaten for so long is not be sniffed at and Fleetwood are a very hard team to beat right now. It…

Fleetwood v Rochdale Betting Tips: Cod Army to march on at Highbury

This League One match sees two Lancashire-based sides, who are both chasing a place in the play-offs, come head-to-head as Fleetwood Town take on Rochdale at Highbury Stadium. Fleetwood are on a fantastic run at the moment and are currently top of the League One form table after no defeats in their last 13 games. However, they have recently had to settle for draws in their last two matches so will want to claim victory here to continue their promotion push. Uwe Rosler’s men are relatively high up the charts in both defence and attack with the fifth best ‘Goals…

MK Dons v Oldham Betting Tips: Dons to prove too good for Latics

Two teams who are slowly pushing themselves up the table go head-to-head on Tuesday night as MK Dons host Oldham Athletic. After a difficult first few games for new manager Robbie Neilson, MK Dons have rallied to pull themselves away from the bottom-end of the league and up to 15th after a run of no defeats in five, winning three of them. This puts The Dons seven points ahead of the relegation zone and Tuesday’s opponents Oldham Athletic. Goals have certainly been the Dons’ strength since Neilson came in with 13 league goals in the last five matches which has…

Walsall v Northampton Betting Tips: Hosts to come on top in high-scoring affair

This League One match is between two midtable teams heading in different directions as Walsall host Northampton Town at Bescot Stadium. Walsall managed to salvage a draw (as I predicted!) against FA Cup giant-killers slayers Millwall on Wednesday night to stretch their unbeaten run to four matches in the league which means they are now just six points off the play-off places. As mentioned in Wednesday’s write-up, the back-line has been the problem for the Saddlers this season with 38 goals conceded in just 29 matches. The fact they kept a clean sheet, their first in four matches, and did…

Port Vale v Peterborough Betting Tips: Valiants can take advantage of visitors’ poor form

Having struggled for a while, Port Vale’s performances of late have certainly improved and it would appear as though they’ve got a good opportunity to regain the winning thread when hosting a Peterborough team who’re on the slide at Vale Park on Saturday afternoon. The visitors may have failed to win any of their last three fixtures but they’ve begun to show much more going forward (scored four goals in their last two matches), particularly when scoring twice last time out against league leaders Scunthorpe. With a tough run of fixtures in front of them, this match against Peterborough –…

Millwall v Walsall Betting Tips: Could be little between this pair at The Den

This League One match is between two sides who currently find themselves rather stranded in midtable but will believe that their recent results give them a relatively good chance of reaching the play-offs. Millwall claimed the first of the three FA Cup shocks we saw on Sunday by beating Premier League outfit Watford 1-0 to claim their second top flight scalp of the season – also securing a 21/10 winning tip! However, it is not just in the cup where things have gone well as they are currently on a six-match unbeaten run in the league, placing them in 10th…

Fleetwood v Southend Betting Tips: Cod Army to keep pushing forward

This League One match is a derby between two of Britain’s fishing hotspots as Fleetwood play host Southend United at Highbury Stadium. Fleetwood may have lost their unbeaten run of 13 in all competitions when they crashed out of the FA Cup to Championship side Bristol City in their recent third round replay, however, they are still unbeaten in the league in their last 11 matches – a particularly impressive run which has seen them win five on the bounce. This has pushed them right into the play-offs with Fleetwood currently sitting 4th – seven points clear of the cut…

Peterborough v MK Dons Betting Tips: Hosts to exploit Don’s back-line

This League One match sees two sides with patchy recent form go head-to-head as MK Dons travel a short distance to take on Peterborough United at The ABAX. Peterborough suffered a surprising loss in their last match against relegation-threatened Oldham Athletic to continue what has been a pretty miserable run of late with three defeats in their last five matches in all competitions and just one win in their last six league matches. However, they are still just about in the play-off hunt and are currently only four points behind 6th place. As mentioned on previous write-ups regarding The Posh,…

Oldham v Peterborough Betting Tips: Things aren’t likely to get easier for struggling Latics

This League One match sees struggling Oldham Athletic host play-off chasing Peterborough United at Boundary Park. Oldham find themselves in the relegation mire after winning just one league match since 22nd October, this puts them down in 23rd place and a rather large six points off safety, however, with two games in hand, they still have half a chance of surviving the drop. They have recently appointed a manager in the form of club legend John Sheridan, who takes charge of Oldham for the fifth time, to try and lead them to survival. Going forward has been the major problem…

Sheffield United v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Visitors far too big in the betting

League One leaders Sheffield United play host to Fleetwood at Bramall Lane on Tuesday night in a match where the hosts look somewhat  overestimated in the betting. Having hit the front in England’s third tier not that long ago, it looked as though Sheffield United might prove too strong and run away with things at the head of affairs; however, the Yorkshire side have proved in recent matches that they’re certainly not invincible and are all of a sudden looking a tad vulnerable. Fleetwood, on the other hand, continue to go well and are proving, week-in-week-out, that they’re a tough…

Rochdale v Oxford Betting Tips: Dale to maintain reputation as League One’s best home team

Promotion chasing Rochdale take on mid-table Oxford at Spotland Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Both teams will be looking to bounce back having gone down to narrow defeats last weekend. Rochdale may have had their winning streak ended last weekend when losing by just a single goal away at Southend, but they were down to ten-men early on and were somewhat unlucky to lose having hung-on to what would have been a decent point in the circumstances until the dying seconds of the match. However, prior to that result they were looking a real force at this level and can get…
