Strong away form has been the key to Oxford’s rise to second spot in League Two but it’s at home that the U’s can pick up three points this weekend as they entertain Southend.
The Shrimpers arrive at the Kassam Stadium having taken just two points from their last six matches and as the hosts’ solitary defeat this term came against leaders Chesterfield, Oxford are easy to recommend at a chunky 13/10 with BetVictor.
Exeter are up in the play-off places and in buoyant mood after they came from behind to beat high-flying Fleetwood, the Grecians are too big at 13/10 courtesy of Betfred ahead of the visit of Plymouth to St James’s Park.
The Pilgrims, who failed to break down rock-bottom Accrington last weekend, have struggled on the road so far and it’s hard to see them getting anything from this contest.
Finally, Rochdale are up in fifth after racking four wins on the spin so it’s hard to understand why they’re 21/10 (Boylesports) to pouch another three points, this time a patchy Portsmouth, especially as the hosts have lost three of their four home fixtures.
Treble on Oxford, Exeter and Rochdale – 14/1 (BetVictor)
