After picking up their first win of the new League One campaign against Chesterfield on Tuesday night, Preston will look to make it two on the trot when Exeter visit Deepdale on Saturday.
The Grecians lost both their first two fixtures and the odds suggest they face a tough challenge to break their duck against a side they haven’t faced since the 1995-96 season.
At 7/10, Preston look a good bet to grab the win, while Exeter are priced as 17/5 outsiders by bwin to come back from Lancashire with the three points. A draw is currently available at 5/2, with both teams having drawn one game each so far this season.
The Lilywhites have scored in each of their three matches so far this term, but the action has been happening at both ends, with five goals also being conceded. In particular, Brown’s charges were left stunned by a 4-2 home reverse at the hands of Colchester on the opening weekend of the season.
With this in mind, football betting fans who fancy Paul Tisdale’s men to cause an upset could be swayed by odds of 12/1 for a 2-1 away victory. Exeter have only scored once so far this term, so any victory for the visitors is likely to be a narrow and low-scoring one. New customers who use their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com on this scoreline could bag £350 if their prediction proves correct.
Preston have shown already this season that closing out victories could prove problematic, having conceded a late equaliser Scunthorpe at Glanford Park last weekend. Betting odds of 13/1 for Preston/Draw in the half-time/full-time market could appeal to some punters, while the Exeter/Exeter selection returns handsomely at odds of 27/4.
Punters looking for a longer-priced flutter could have a small wager on scorelines such as a 4-2 victory for Preston, which is attractive at 40/1, considering the weaknesses in both teams’ respective rearguards.
