With no Premier League action to quench betting thirsts during the international break, MK Dons v Swindon will be beamed around the globe to the waiting masses.
The home team haven’t lost a league game all season and can be backed to win at a generous-looking 11/10 with bwin. Swindon, who aren’t faring quite so well, but not at all badly, are 11/5, as is the draw.
As we always advise, make sure you do the legwork before going in swinging. There may only be four places and two points dividing this pair, but don’t get overexcited by the Robins’ beefy odds.
They haven’t revelled in trips to Milton Keynes of late; their three most recent visits to the ingeniously christened stadiummk reaped bagel points and just two goals.
Swindon’s record on the road this term isn’t of the ilk that suggests this will change upon this trip either.
Two league jaunts beyond the confines of the County Ground have yielded no points to date, while they haven’t managed to put the ball in the back of the net on their travels to further condemn these figures.
This poor form is indicative of a hangover from the previous campaign, where they finished regular season action with four straight losses away from home, failing to bag in three.
This must have the win to nil-mongers on red alert and a price of 12/5 says that this game will follow the lead of Swindon’s previous two road games and see them head home pointless and goalless.
Trends point to value in the half-time/full-time markets too. In both of Swindon’s away-day defeats, they have been behind at both the break and, obviously, the final whistle.
Half of the Dons’ four wins in all competitions this term have met that criteria, so the 12/5 on offer for a repeat dose to be administered could well prove profitable.
