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…

Walsall v Chesterfield Betting Tips: Saddlers can kick-on against relegation candidates

The postponement of Walsall’s fixture last Tuesday turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the extra rest seemed to do the Saddlers plenty of good on Saturday as they recorded a fifth consecutive home victory against an Oldham side who’ve been hard to beat in recent weeks. With another positive result under their belt, John Whitney’s side are likely to be confident of collecting a further three points when they welcome relegation-threatened Chesterfield to Bescot Stadium on Tuesday night. Given how well they’ve acquitted themselves in front of a home crowd of late, it’s hard to look past…

Millwall v MK Dons Betting Tips: Lions to sink their teeth in at The Den

This match sees play-off hopefuls Millwall take on Milton Keynes Dons who seem set for mid-table obscurity. Millwall are one of the country’s most in form teams at the moment with no defeats in any competition in their last 16 matches. Promotion is of course the main priority of Neil Harris’s side and they currently sit in the play-offs and two points clear of 7th place with no signs of the good run coming to an end. The Lions have been absolutely fantastic in defence and have not conceded a goal in any competition in their last nine matches which…

Bury v Gillingham Betting Tips: Shakers can once again line punters pockets

Up and down is probably the right way to describe Bury’s season, but, at this moment in time, they’re looking good and, in playing a Gillingham side who’ve been dismal on the road, have been handed an excellent opportunity to build on their recent run. It’s no secret that The Gills have struggled majorly away from the comforts of their home ground this season and they’re expected to make little headway in this fixture. The hosts continued to go well during the week when beating Coventry on home soil and are well worth backing to follow up here, especially at…

Walsall v Oldham Athletic Betting Tips: Saddlers can win again at Bescot Stadium

These two sides have different objectives in League One this season with Walsall looking to push for an unlikely play-off place whilst Oldham are simply looking to stay up. Walsall are currently on a bit of an inconsistent run at the moment with just one win in their last four league matches which now means they are nine points off the play-off places. With a fair number of teams above them looking in much better shape, The Saddlers will more than likely be in League One again next season. Although they look to play attractive football, goals have been a…

Scunthorpe v Fleetwood Betting Tips: Rosler’s men can continue their run

Scunthorpe and Fleetwood are two teams who’re seemingly moving in different directions right now. Having set the pace for some time in League One, Scunthorpe’s trajectory of late has been a downward one, while Fleetwood, who’re unbeaten in no less than league 17 matches, are very much on the up. Considering the way these two have been going, it’s particularly surprising that Scunthorpe are as warm in the early market as they are. At 11/10, the hosts have to be opposed. Backing ‘Fleetwood Draw No Bet’, at odds of 13/8 makes plenty of sense. Even though they’re away from home,…

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…
