Both MK Dons and Huddersfield are in excellent League One form ahead of their crucial showdown and as a result, you’d struggle to fit a cigarette paper between the pair at stadium:mk. Taking into account their home advantage, Paddy Power lean slightly towards the hosts, pricing them at 6/4 while the Terriers are rated at 15/8 by and Totesport offer the draw at 12/5.
Of those three bets, it’s the stalemate that appeals but in the circumstances, none of the possible outcomes would be a major surprise and it’s just too tough to call. Instead, it could be worth turning attention to the goal-related markets and in particular the prospect of a low-scoring encounter.
Five of MK Dons’ last six at home have produced fewer than three goals and the visitors have kept clean sheets in six of their last seven, so a flutter on the two sides at evens with Stan James, to generate less than 2.5 goals between them is where the value lies.
Exeter’s four straight wins have opened up the possibility of them making a late push to infiltrate the top six and they should collect a fifth consecutive maximum haul as they entertain Oldham.
The Latics have won just one of their last 15 and a lack of goals has really hampered their progress over the last two months or so. It’s hard to see them landing anything against the in-form Grecians then and the hosts look like a banker at 10/11 with Paddy Power, to triumph at St James’ Park, where they’re 21/10 (888Sport) to prevail ‘to nil’ against their goal-shy opponents.
