Leaders Tranmere continue to impress, last weekend’s heavy FA Cup defeat at Derby County excepted, and they go into the home clash against Crawley on the back of three consecutive League One successes.
By contrast the Red Devils’ form is a bit patchy; they’ve picked up four league and cup victories since the start of December but one of those came against non-league Chelmsford and the three league triumphs were all against woefully out-of-form opposition.
Subsequently, it’s hard to fathom out why Ronnie Moore’s table-toppers are as high as 13/10 via bet365 to send Town home from Prenton Park empty-handed and at that Rovers will significantly boost the price of any accumulator.
A shock defeat to Hartlepool, followed by a draw at Doncaster hindered Sheffield United’s promotion bid but the third-placed Blades bounced back with a decent cup win at League Two Oxford last weekend and they can return their league campaign to the right path this weekend as Yeovil arrive at Bramall Lane.
Admittedly, the Glovers are in decent shape having won three of their last four in the league but Danny Wilson’s men are solid at home and with the visitors’ matches on the road tending to be conclusive, it’s hard not to side with the hosts at 8/11 with Coral.
It was a bit of a shaky Christmas for MK Dons but Karl Robinson’s troops have steadied the ship in 2013, starting with an impressive triumph at Notts County followed by last weekend’s decent cup draw at Championship Sheffield Wednesday. They’re home banker material then at 4/7 (Betfred) as they tackle a Bury side without a victory in any competition in ten attempts.
Treble on Tranmere, Sheff Utd and MK Dons – 5/1 (bet365)
