Huddersfield Town face Yorkshire rivals Bradford City tonight in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and the League One side are priced up at 31/100 for the victory in 90 minutes.
The Terriers maintained their record-breaking unbeaten run on Saturday with a resounding 4-0 win away at Brentford and currently sit fifth in the League One table – they have now gone 36 league matches without defeat.
Conversely, tonight’s visitors at the Galpharm Stadium, Bradford, have only won once in the league all season and sit third bottom of League Two.
They had a particularly bad time of it at the weekend, squandering a two-goal lead at Burton Albion to draw 2-2.
The arrival of new manager Phil Parkinson hasn’t seen much of an upturn in fortunes at Valley Parade – the former Charlton manager is still waiting for his first victory in charge, and that run doesn’t look like changing tonight.
Huddersfield are priced at 17/20 to be winning at half time and full time, but despite being odds-on here the better option could be a draw/Huddersfield win at half time/full time.
Town’s home form has been slightly patchy this season, and from their opening five home matches only twice have they led at the break.
This makes the bet appealing at odds of 13/4, with a successful £25 free bet on the game to be level at the interval and Huddersfield to be ahead after 90 minutes set to return £106.25.
The goals market could also be attractive for punters – you can get odds of 29/20 for there to be over 3.5 goals in the match.
Huddersfield have so far scored more than two goals per home match on average, while Bradford, although winless, have netted in each of their last six games.
With that in mind, the correct score price of 19/2 for Huddersfield to win 3-1 could be good value too.
