FOOTBALL BETTING: Shrewsbury take their buoyant start to Moss Rose to face Macclesfield and have every chance of claiming all 3 points, while Bradford can do the same at home to Stevenage.
Buoyant Shrewsbury crushed Bradford last Saturday before coming back from 3-0 down to defeat Charlton in the Carling Cup on Tuesday and they can maintain that momentum this weekend as they tackle Macclesfield at Moss Rose. Graham Turner’s troops are priced by Stan James at 7/5 to emerge triumphant and a tasty 3/1 (888Sport) to do so by a one-goal margin against the Silkmen, who could find the going tough this season.
Also primed for an away win are Wycombe. The Chairboys saw off Morecambe a week ago and ran Millwall close in midweek so they look decent value at 13/10 with bet365 to heap more Edgeley Park misery on Stockport, who were beaten 5-0 on their own patch on Tuesday.
Adam Le Fondre took just nine minutes to open his account for the season as he broke the deadlock for Rotherham against Lincoln and we’d be happy to recommend a flutter on the Millers marksman to notch at any time as his side head to Morecambe, were the bookies not on their guard; William Hill chalking just evens against Le Fondre striking again. Ronnie Moore’s side however, offer a little more appeal at 2/1 (Betdaq) to snare all three points at the new Globe Arena.
Finally, where eye-catching homes are concerned; Bradford can build on their victory over Nottingham Forest by sending Stevenage home from Valley Parade empty-handed (evens, Ladbrokes) and quoted at 11/10 by Jaxx.com, Oxford should get the better of Bury having smashed in six against Bristol Rovers in midweek.
