Sky Bet League One

Leyton Orient v Chesterfield

Leyton Orient
Promotion hopefuls Leyton Orient are expected to get off to a winning start in Sky Bet League 1 this weekend, with Chesterfield the visitors to the Matchroom Stadium.

The O’s are even-money (1/1) to put three points on the board, with Chesterfield the 13/5 outsiders, although a draw would be a good result for the newcomers at 23/10.

Six of the last seven meetings between the two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals, which is 4/5 to come in again, while Orient to win with less than three goals scored in the match is 100/30.

Darius Henderson is considered the hosts’ biggest goal threat at evens to score anytime, and 4/1 to break the deadlock, with the O’s odds-on (8/11) to be the first team to score.

Best bet: Under 2.5 goals – 4/5

Chesterfield
Football League sponsor Sky Bet make Chesterfield 13/5 to mark their return to the third tier with an opening day win at Leyton Orient.

The pressure is on even-money (1/1) favourites Orient to deliver, as they’re tipped by many to be promoted this year, which is a 9/2 chance.

Six of the last seven meetings between the two clubs have produced under 2.5 goals, which is 4/5 to come in again, while the Spireites to win with less than three goals scored in the match is 6/1.

Eoin Doyle is considered the visitors’ biggest goal threat at 12/5 to score anytime, and 7/1 to break the deadlock, although the O’s are odds-on (8/11) to be the first team to score.

Best bet: Under 2.5 goals – 4/5
