Rock-bottom Doncaster Rovers host fellow strugglers Peterborough United on Saturday afternoon, with both teams having won just once in their last eight fixtures.
However, despite their position, Rovers – who due to the recent weather conditions have played the least games in the division – have lost just one of their last five at home and go in to the match favourites at 13/10 for the win.
Peterborough, whose three away wins have all come against teams currently below them in the table, are at 2/1 in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, with the draw at 11/5.
One of the main contributors to Doncaster’s plight this season is their failure to hold on to leads. They have the worst first-half record in the Championship, having led at the break only five times this season, and of those fixtures, they have only gone on to win twice.
Meanwhile, Peterborough’s record in the second half is up there with the best in the division. Also, only Blackpool, Leeds United and Reading have gained more points after going behind.
With these statistics in mind, the half-time/full-time market looks intriguing. You can get odds of 12/1 for Doncaster to be leading at half-time, with the match finishing all square.
Punters who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com will see a return of £375 if they correctly back this outcome.
Opting for the 11/5 on a draw is surely the safest way to go in the 3Way market, but the vastly superior odds on Doncaster/draw could provide a very welcome boost to the betting balance.
Alternatively, as Doncaster’s last three draws have all been goalless, you might be tempted to back the 0-0 scoreline, which is priced at 15/2.
