Huddersfield are looking for their first win of the new League One season and are priced at 3/4 to see off this weekend’s visitors Colchester, who have never beaten them away from home.
The Terriers have met the Us eleven times on home soil – winning six and drawing five – and the early form suggests that this latest clash between the two sides could be another close call. The home side have drawn all three games so far this term and another stalemate at the Galpharm Stadium is available at 47/20.
For football betting fans looking for a bigger price, this fixture has finished 2-2 twice since 2004, which is priced at a tasty 29/2. In other words, backing this outcome with the free £25 bet bwin offers to all new customers could return an impressive £387.50 if the result comes in.
However, Huddersfield were ante-post favourites for the League One title and my suspicion is that they will have too much for a Colchester side who were beaten 2-0 at home by Charlton on Tuesday. Lee Clark’s men were solid in front of their own fans last season, only losing on three occasions, and should show the class that guided them to the play-off final.
Their fans are generally a demanding bunch, so with the Terriers perhaps feeling the weight of expectation in the opening stages of the match after their lukewarm start to the season, backing a half-time draw and a Huddersfield win at full-time at 17/4 could be the best bet.
Colchester managed just four away victories last season – only three teams had worse records on the road – but if you fancy the Us to cause a shock they are available at football betting odds of 33/10 for those who join bwin.com.
