High-flying Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday can both pick up League One wins and they combine at 9/2 with .
Rampant Charlton’s 4-0 success at Halifax on Sunday was the Addicks’ fifth in a row in all competitions and Chris Powell’s men can maintain their momentum by collecting a maximum haul at Griffin Park, where they face Brentford.
The Bees are currently in the top ten, which indicates that they are no pushovers but they have so far reserved their best work for the road and have lost more games than they have won on their own patch.
Having won seven out of nine on their travels, Charlton are more than capable of capitalising on the hosts’ inconsistency on home soil and at 13/10 with Sportingbet, the League One leaders are decent value.
Sheffield Wednesday are desperately trying to force their way into the automatic promotion race and after they put in a decent display to swerve an FA Cup banana skin at Morecambe on Sunday, the Owls could be worth following at 13/8 via to pick up another away win, this time at Tranmere.
Admittedly Rovers are eighth with a solid 4-4-1 record at Prenton Park but in recent weeks their form has dipped; they were beaten by League Two Cheltenham at home on Saturday, days after exiting the Johnstone’s Paints Trophy at Chesterfield and prior to that in the league they took just a point from games against Colchester and Scunthorpe, so they look there for the taking for a Wednesday team in decent shape.
Elsewhere, Huddersfield are 8/11 (Boylesports) to extend their mammoth unbeaten league record but after they slipped up at League Two Swindon last weekend, they don’t appeal and could even finally suffer a defeat to resilient Notts County, Stan James’ 17/4 outsiders.
Meanwhile, freefalling Preston (4/5, Betfred) can finally get back to winning ways against struggling Rochdale and Scunthorpe (evens, Boylesports) should have too much for Hartlepool at Glanford Park.
Charlton and Sheffield Wednesday double – 9/2 ()
