Preston powered up to ninth in League One with a 3-0 win at Walsall and can continue their impressive early season form by taking maximum points at home to Oldham.
The central Lancashire side are 4/5 of to see off their Greater Manchester foes, with 3/1 priced up about the Oldham win and the draw available at 12/5.
With Lee Johnson’s team drawing blanks in two of their last four league games, a PNE win to nil at 2/1 may be the best bet to boost your winnings potential.
Oldham couldn’t get on the scoresheet against Tranmere – who, with 13 goals conceded so far, have the second-leakiest defence in the division – last time out at Boundary Park.
They are unlikely to find their next opponents any easier to break down.
Goalkeeper Declan Rudd was initially brought in on loan from Norwich in January and has kept four clean sheets in six competitive starts for the Lilywhites so far this season.
Simon Grayson returned to former club Huddersfield to capture the signature of centre-half Tom Clarke and the 25-year-old has already vindicated the gaffer’s decision.
Clarke has played every minute of every game so far and popped up with the winner against Blackpool in the Capital One Cup, as well as kicking off the scoring in the 4-4 draw away to Coventry.
Preston possess multiple attacking threats and midfielders Joel Byrom and new signing Chris Humphrey are in cracking goalscoring form, with both players scoring in each of their last two league games for the club.
Former Bolton hero Kevin Davies is still to score for his new side following a summer move from the Reebok Stadium, but the burly 36-year-old’s record of 68 Premier League strikes in nine top-flight seasons for them suggests he will start firing sooner or later at this level.
