Saturday, 10th December – all 3.00pm kick-offs
Brentford v Hartlepool United
Home: 4/5 Draw: 23/10 Away: 31/10
Key stat: Four out of the last five games between these two sides have been draws and there have only been five goals in that time. Last time out, it finished 3-0 to the Pool, but the three before that finished goalless.
Betting Tip: No goals in the game @ 35/4
Colchester United v Bury
Home: Evens Draw: 9/4 Away: 12/5
Key stat: The first time the sides have met since 2001. Both have been inconsistent results-wise, but they both score and concede goals. With Colchester scoring and conceding 15 at home, and Bury scoring and conceding 14 away, look at this game to give you goals.
Betting Tip: Over 3.5 Goals @9/5
Huddersfield Town v Bournemouth
Home: 3/5 Draw: 12/5 Away: 9/2
Key stat: So far this season, Huddersfield are undefeated at home. They have also lost only once in 44 games. Bournemouth have not continued their great form from last season, but haven’t lost in seven away games. They both have poor first halves, so look for Huddersfield to nab the points in the latter stages.
Betting Tip: Draw/Huddersfield win @15/4
Leyton Orient v Exeter City
Home: 11/10 Draw: 11/5 Away: 11/5
Key stat: This is probably going to be a poor game. Only eight goals away for Exeter and nine for Orient at home, this game is unlikely to feature for too long on the Football League Show. But, with 59 goals conceded between them this season, they are both susceptible to mistakes. Surely a 1-1 draw is on the cards.
Betting Tip: Exact score 1-1 @21/4
Oldham Athletic v Sheffield Wednesday
Home: 17/10 Draw: 11/5 Away: 7/5
Key stat: Last year, this match ended 3-2. With Wednesday scoring 34 goals this season, and Oldham scoring 27, this game looks good for goals. And with Oldham allowing 29 goals in at the other end and Wednesday on a poor run away from Hillsborough, surely the game is a recipe for action.
Betting Tip: Over 3.5 goals @9/5
Preston North End v Stevenage
Home: 13/10 Draw: 11/5 Away: 9/5
Key stat: Stevenage have been impressive since their promotion last season, while Preston have plummeted. With the second worst goals against tally in the league and the seventh best goals for column, Preston are in games with goals. Back Stevenage to edge it at 9/5.
Betting Tip: Stevenage to beat Preston @9/5
Scunthorpe United v Carlisle United
Home: 27/20 Draw: 11/5 Away: 7/4
Key stat: Carlisle are the second half specialists. If games finished at half time, they would be 23rd, but if games started in the second half, they would be fifth. Scunthorpe have plummeted since their relegation from the Championship and are in for a difficult test here. I would look for Scunthorpe to take a half time lead but for Carlisle to take the three points.
Betting Tip: Scunthorpe/Carlisle half time/full time swing @28/1
Sheffield United v Rochdale
Home: 57/100 Draw: 5/2 Away: 9/2
Key stat: If games were to finish at the break, Rochdale would be in trouble. They would be rock bottom, conceding a massive 22 goals in 19 first halves. Sheffield are fifth and have been indifferent this season but are clear favourites. Punters should look at Sheffield United to be winning at half-time.
Betting Tip: Sheffield United to win the first half @21/20
Tranmere Rovers v MK Dons
Home: 17/10 Draw: 11/5 Away: 7/5
Key stat: Tranmere have only scored 20 goals this season and MK Dons have only conceded 21. Back MK Dons for the win given the way they are playing, but also to keep a clean sheet.
Betting Tip: MK Dons to keep a clean sheet @11/5
Walsall v Charlton Athletic
Home: 3/1 Draw: 47/20 Away: 4/5
Key stat: Walsall are in the relegation places at the moment, while Charlton are in flying form. Charlton have scored the most, conceded the least, and ended Huddersfield’s record recently. I’d be looking at a big 3-0 Charlton win.
Betting Tip: Charlton to win 3-0 @27/2
Wycombe Wanderers v Chesterfield
Home: 6/5 Draw: 11/5 Away: 2/1
Key stat: A six-pointer in Wycombe, with the bottom team facing the side above them. Wycombe have only won once at home, while Chesterfield have only won one game away. The only trend I can see is that Chesterfield are able to score away but also concede badly. I’ll stick my neck out and say bet on a 2-1 Wycombe win.
Betting Tip: Wycombe to win 2-1 @15/2
Yeovil Town v Notts County
Home: 37/20 Draw: 9/4 Away: 5/4
Key stat: Yeovil have been poor in front of their own fans this season, winning only twice and conceding 13 in the process. Notts County, although far from consistent away from home, usually get off to a blistering start to games. They have scored 16 goals in the first half this season, so for Notts County to win the first half should be a banker.
Betting Tip: Notts County to win the first half @7/4
