Before the season started, Sheffield United and MK Dons were the two favourites for the League One title so it follows that their clash at Bramall Lane was expected to be a vital contest in terms of the battle for top spot.
As it has turned out however, the Dons are languishing in mid-table, albeit with a couple of games in hand on most, as close to the relegation zone as they are to the Blades.
Moreover MK Dons have won just once in eight in the league and don’t have the most convincing away record so Danny Wilson’s men have to be fancied at 6/5 with BetVictor to boost their own promotion hopes with a victory.
This season’s surprise package, Yeovil still have realistic automatic promotion ambitions and they underlined them last weekend, bouncing back from a defeat at struggling Colchester to get the better of fellow high-flyers Tranmere at Huish Park.
That was the Glovers ninth league victory in eleven outings and at 13/10 courtesy of bet365, they can make it ten from twelve as they go to Hartlepool.
The hosts’ recent revival has come off the rails a touch in the last couple of matches – a heavy defeat at Doncaster and a frustrating home draw with Colchester – and their hopes of a miracle escape from the relegation zone look set to suffer another blow here.
Double on Sheffield United and Yeovil – 4/1 (BetVictor)
