The weekend seems barely past but already we're into the midweek round of League One fixtures and Sky Bet provide their odds.
Bristol City v Peterborough United
Sky Bet League 1 leaders Bristol City are the odds-on favourites at 17/20 to win at home to Peterborough on Tuesday night. The Robins enter this match on the back of a 3-1 defeat to Sheffield United, which was just their second loss in 13 games. Peterborough can be backed for the three points at 3/1 and they are on a high after a 2-1 victory over Rochdale. The draw is on offer at 5/2. There have been exactly three goals in four of the Posh’s last six games and you can get 3/1 for that mark to be reached once again.
Top tip: Exactly three goals to be scored at 3/1.
Colchester United v MK Dons
Promotion chasers MK Dons are the 4/5 favourites to claim victory at Colchester on Tuesday night. Hosts Colchester can be backed for the win at 16/5 and the draw is on offer at 13/5. MK Dons are hoping to avoid three defeats in a row on the road after losing to Gillingham and Bradford in their last two outings. Colchester enjoyed a 1-0 win at Oldham on Saturday to end a three-match run without a victory. Sammie Szmodics netted the only goal of the game in the weekend win and he’s looking to make it three contests in a row on the scoresheet. Szmodics can be backed at 9/2 to net in this match, with Devante Cole priced up as the most likely MK Dons player to strike at 5/4 in the ‘anytime’ market.
Top tip: Sammie Szmodics to score at 9/2.
Doncaster Rovers v Crewe Alexandra
Doncaster have been made the odds-on favourites at 3/4 to defeat Crewe on Tuesday night. Victory could move Rovers into the play-off places after convincing 5-0 and 3-0 victories in their last two matches. Howeve, Crewe are also in coming into this clash in great form with three victories claimed on the spin. The Alex are 7/2 to make it a fourth win in a row and the draw is on offer at 5/2. Two of Crewe’s last four games have seen exactly five goals scored and Doncaster beat Crawley 5-0 a week ago. You can get 11/1 for exactly five goals to be scored in this match.
Top tip: Exactly five goals to be scored at 11/1.
Notts County v Sheffield United
Sheffield United are the odds-on favourites at 17/20 to make it three wins in a row with victory at Notts County on Tuesday night. Hosts County are on offer at 16/5 with Sky Bet and the draw can be found at 12/5. The visiting Blades claimed a hugely impressive 3-1 win at leaders Bristol City on Saturday and that success followed on from a 4-1 victory over Colchester. The Magpies didn’t play at the weekend but won 1-0 at Leyton Orient last time out to end a three-game losing run. Sheffield United’s Matt Done has netted three goals in his last two appearances and he’s the 9/2 favourite to score first in this match. Ronan Murray, Kaiyne Woolery and Balint Bajner are the top Notts County contenders in the same market at 8/1.
Top tip: Matt Done to score first at 9/2.
Scunthorpe United v Chesterfield
Chesterfield know that victory over Scunthorpe on Tuesday night will see them return to the Sky Bet League 1 play-off places. The visiting Spireites are the 7/5 favourites for the win, Scunthorpe can be supported at 9/5 and the draw is on offer at 23/10. Chesterfield enter this match on the back of two defeats in a row at home, while Scunthorpe are in much better spirits after beating promotion contenders Swindon 3-1 on Saturday. Paddy Madden scored in the Iron’s weekend win and he’s the favourite in the first goalscorer betting at 11/2. The top Chesterfield contender is Caolan Lavery at 5/1 and you can get 11/2 for both Madden and Lavery to find the back of the net.
Top tip: Paddy Madden and Caolan Lavery both to score during the match at 11/2.
Leyton Orient v Bradford City
FA Cup heroes Bradford are the 13/8 favourites to claim victory at Leyton Orient on Wednesday night. The Bantams reached the quarter-finals of the FA Cup on Sunday with a 2-0 victory over Barclays Premier League side Sunderland but now the focus returns to Sky Bet League 1 action. Hosts Orient can be backed for the victory at 17/10 and the draw is a 23/10 shout. Bradford are on a five-match unbeaten run, but Orient will also be in decent spirits after a 3-2 win at Chesterfield on Saturday. Three of Orient’s last five games have contained over 3.5 goals and its 5/2 for over that mark to be reached again in this encounter.
Top tip: Over 3.5 goals at 5/2.
