Huddersfield are looking to kick-start their season this Saturday by defeating stuttering Wycombe and are bwin’s odds-on favourites to pick up all three points.
Only Charlton have shorter odds than Lee Clark’s men to claim the League One title, with the West Yorkshire outfit priced at 5/1 to finish top of the pile.
With that in mind, it is no surprise to see them as short as 3/5 to see off the Chairboys at the Galpharm Stadium.
Wycombe’s main priority is survival this season, with any points taken from the big guns considered a bonus, and they are rated as 9/2 outsiders, while the draw is available at 12/5.
Despite an unbeaten start to their league campaign, the Terriers currently occupy 11th place, one point ahead of Wycombe.
This lowly position is the by-product of three draws in four league games and was compounded by their Carling Cup exit against Cardiff in midweek.
However, Clark’s troops beat Colchester last weekend and are priced at 22/1 to replicate the 3-2 scoreline from that victory, this time against Gary Waddock’s misfiring side.

Wycombe’s early optimism is rapidly diminishing, after being beaten by fellow League One newcomers Bury and suffering a humbling lesson by Nottingham Forest in the League Cup on Tuesday.
Although Wycombe’s form on the road outshines their gloomy results at Adams Park, the Galpharm is an ominous place for visiting teams to play.
Huddersfield only lost three times at home in the league last season, a record which saw them finish just five points behind eventual runners-up Southampton.
The magnitude of Wycombe’s task is shown by the wealth of attacking talent at Clark’s disposal, with last season’s top scorer Jordan Rhodes setting the pace
However, the Terriers need Gary Roberts to quickly start delivering the kind of service which Anthony Pilkington provided before his departure to Norwich if they are to keep up their impressive goalscoring feats in recent times.
In contrast, Wycombe’s inability to hit the net almost scuppered their League Two promotion campaign, with chief marksman Scott Rendell only racking up 14 league goals.
This lack of ingenuity in the final third makes a Huddersfield clean sheet look very appealing at 13/10.
Football betting fans should also note that the West Yorkshire outfit did the double over Wycombe in the 2009-10 season, including a 6-0 hammering at the Galpharm.
The Terriers were ahead at half-time and full-time in both of those meetings and are available at 31/20 to repeat the trick on this occasion.
