Football Betting: Live on Skysports 2: Sat 12.15 & Sun 12.00: MK Dons and Hartlepool are Saturday’s early kick off in League 1, followed on Sunday by Brentford v Sheff Wednesday.
It could be a case of ‘as you were’ at the top of League One after this weekend’s fixtures as the top three all look set to land maximum points.
Leaders Sheffield Wednesday head to beleaguered Brentford fresh from smashing five past Hartlepool and up against a Bees side currently propping up the table, the Owls look huge at 6/5 with bet365; a price that could be quickly gobbled up by shrewd punters.
Alan Irvine has plenty of ability at his disposal in attack and between them, Neil Mellor, Marcus Tudgay and Clinton Morrison can ensure that Wednesday find the net at least twice at Griffin Park (5/4, bet365).
Peterborough went down 5-1 at Bournemouth three weeks ago but recovered well with emphatic wins against Huddersfield and Plymouth and Gary Johnson’s troops are a tasty 21/20 with William Hill to overcome winless Tranmere, whose start to the season at Prenton Park has been pretty dismal.
Third-placed Carlisle meanwhile, can complete the hat-trick of wins for the leading trio as they host a Swindon side still looking for their first victory; the Cumbrians a mouth watering 23/20 with Betfred to send the Robins home from Brunton Park empty-handed.
Also primed for home wins are Huddersfield, who are 7/10 (Jaxx.com) to see off Bournemouth, Southampton, Stan James’ 8/15 favourites against Rochdale and MK Dons who are 8/11 courtesy of Victor Chandler, to heap more misery on hapless Hartlepool.
