FOOTBALL BETTING: Huddersfield look to continue their great start to the League 1 season by getting 3 points over Tranmere and Brighton are eyeing another maximum.
Huddersfield are the early pacesetters in League One after recording a comprehensive 3-0 victory at Notts County on the season’s opening weekend. The promotion-chasing Terriers followed that result up with a Carling Cup success at Carlisle and they can make it three-in-a-row as they play their first home match of the campaign, against Tranmere.
Rovers were beaten at home by Oldham last Saturday and it’s hard to see them improving on that at the Galpharm Stadium where Lee Clark’s men look a banker at 1/2 with William Hill to come out on top. Nevertheless, that short price could push a few punters into the handicaps, where Paddy Power price Town at 7/5 to cover a one-goal deficit.
Jordan Rhodes meanwhile, has bagged two goals in a week and likely to fancy his chances against the Tranmere rearguard; the Terriers marksman is hard to ignore at 4/1 (Betfred) to break the deadlock.
Also a solid bet on home soil are Brighton who, fresh from the win at Swindon, are a tasty 4/6 with Stan James to see off League One newcomers Rochdale and having seen off Southampton, Plymouth can make it two from two as the entertain Carlisle; the Pilgrims incredible value at 10/11 courtesy of Ladbrokes.
At bigger prices, bet365’s 2/1 shots Exeter aren’t without appeal at Dagenham and Redbridge and the same firm post 8/5 against the Daggers’ conquerors last week, Sheffield Wednesday, who travel to Colchester.
