Dean Cox’s late leveller at Bournemouth maintained Leyton Orient’s solid run and the O’s have now lost just one of their last 17 matches in all competitions. Swindon by contrast are winless in seven, facing a relegation battle and possess a pretty terrible away record so we’d expect Leyton Orient to be a shade of odds-on to secure all three points as the sides face-off at Brisbane Road.
However, the good news for punters is that the hosts are chalked up at 11/10 by to send the Robins home empty-handed and it’s tough to ignore that price.
Another League One side proving tough to beat at present are Rochdale. Keith Hill’s charges haven’t lost in eight and they look a home banker at 5/6 with Betfred to get the better of struggling Bristol Rovers, who have lost their last three, conceding a dozen times in the process. Doubling ‘Dale up with Leyton Orient works out at tasty odds slightly higher than 14/5 courtesy of Totesport.
Hereford’s decent run came to an end on Saturday as they were beaten by in-form Lincoln at Edgar Street but the Bulls can get back to winning ways as they host fellow League Two strugglers Macclesfield. Jamie Pitman’s side are 6/5 at against a Silkmen side without a win in eight, a run stretching back to November.
Five successive victories have carried Lincoln away from danger and the Imps look overpriced at 13/8 (bet365) to extend their winning sequence to six against Shrewsbury. Nevertheless, while the promotion-chasing visitors tend to be a little hit-and-miss on the road, they possess plenty of quality and ran out 2-0 winners at Southend at the weekend, so it may be wise to play things a little safer by backing the hosts ‘Draw No Bet’ at 5/6 with bet365.
Double on Leyton Orient and Rochdale – 14/5 (Totesport)
