Owls Don’t Appeal But Robins Can Take Flight

Football Betting: A round up of this weekend’s League 1 action sees two top of the table clashes but, lower down, Swindon could capitalise on trouble at Southampton. Compare all League 1 odds.

Sheffield Wednesday have taken ten points from their opening five games but they almost lost all of those in midweek as they narrowly avoided going into administration and that off-field victory can translate into success on the pitch as they take on second-placed Carlisle this weekend. However, at 4/5 with Totesport, the Owls are a touch skinny to appeal, especially as the Cumbrians are unbeaten and it may be worth seeking value elsewhere in League One.

At the bottom, Swindon are still seeking their first maximum haul but they picked up a creditable point at Carlisle a week ago and they could capitalise on the disarray at Southampton by sending the Saints home empty-handed. The Robins are huge at 7/4 (Victor Chandler) to beat a Saints side turned over at home by Rochdale last time out, although as Danny Wilson’s remain winless, a little insurance wouldn’t go amiss and they’re better value in Stan James’ ‘Draw No Bet’ market where they are available at even money.

It’s fourth plays third at London Road where Peterborough tackle Oldham and the hosts are the side that can clinch the three points; a result available at 3/4 with Jaxx.com. The Latics’ unbeaten record could deter some but they have stuttered of late, drawing at home to Yeovil and Bristol Rovers while Posh are powerful on home soil and the form of Aaron McLean who is 6/4 (bet365) to strike, can fire them to victory.

Also catching the eye are Colchester (11/10, bet365) and Bournemouth (4/5, Partybets), who tackle Plymouth and Dagenham and Redbridge respectively and in the latter contest a match total of three or more goals looks a banker at evens given that the Cherries five matches have averaged four goals apiece.

Recommended Bets:
Swindon to beat Southampton – Draw No Bet – evens (Stan James)
Aaron McLean to score against Oldham – 6/4 (bet365)
More than 2.5 goals in Bournemouth v Dagenham game – evens (Betdaq)
