Go For Goals In Grecians And Posh Clash

Football Betting: Exeter and Peterborough meet in League 1 in a tie that promises to be full of goals. Elsewhere, joint-top Carlisle entertain Brighton and MK Dons host Rochdale.

Only two points separate the top nine in League One but it’s Peterborough that narrowly lead the way on goal difference ahead of Carlisle. Posh are tentatively fancied amongst bookies to at least consolidate their position this weekend; Stan James making them 13/10 to get the better of Exeter, but as Gary Johnson’s men have lost two of their three games and the Grecians have made a solid start to the campaign, the value at St James’ Park lies not with the win-draw-win market but in the total goals betting.

All but one of the hosts’ seven matches in all competitions have produced three or more goals while Posh’s eight league and cup games have produced a remarkable 34 in total, so it’s seems safe to suggest that when the pair met, the respective ‘keepers will be beaten on more than 2.5 occasions between them (9/10, Betdaq).

By contrast, statistics suggest that Carlisle’s equally tough-to-call clash with Brighton at Brunton Park looks set to generate fewer than 2.5 goals, an outcome Jaxx.com rate at 7/10.

Fourth-placed Huddersfield have drawn two out of three at home, but sandwiched in between was an impressive victory against Charlton and last weekend the Terriers returned from Leyton Orient laden with a maximum haul. As they welcome Yeovil to the Galpharm Stadium then, a home win looks a safe bet and if bet365’s 8/15 looks a touch skinny, 888Sport chalk 11/8 against a victory for Lee Clark’s charges by at least two clear goals.

Elsewhere, Notts County appeal at 5/6 (Totesport) to see off Leyton Orient at Meadow Lane and at the same price, this time with William Hill, Brentford can send Hartlepool home empty-handed but the other real eye-catcher in League One are rejuvenated Swindon, who Ladbrokes quote at 7/4 to follow up the victory against Southampton by beating Walsall.

Recommended Bets:
Double on over 2.5 goals at Exeter & under 2.5 goals at Carlisle – 2/1 (Victor Chandler)
Huddersfield to beat Yeovil by at least two goals – 11/8 (888Sport)
Swindon to beat Walsall – 7/4 (Ladbrokes)
