This is a glance at the 10 top valued bets for the weekend – we pick 10 sides in each category of our and see why they are such good game for the win! We start with positive games:
Leicester (Away, Evs) vs Doncaster
Leicester have picked up some good form this season, and lie in the top 5 already, with players like Anthony Knockaert and David Nugent doing the business. Their away form reading played 5, won 3, drawn 1, lost 1 – not bad. Doncaster’s home form is the other way around – played 5, won 1, drawn 1, lost 3. Leicester will want promotion this season, and will need to pick us as many points early on as possible, so winning these games is a must.
Leyton Orient (Away, 29/20 – drifting to 13/8) vs Oldham
Leyton Orient have started the season like a house on fire! 8 wins and a draw from 9 games – and today we expect them to notch another win up. They have won all 4 of their away games, conceding just two in the process. Oldham have been inconsistent. 4 losses in the last 6, and two losses in 4 at home. Orient should rack this one up nicely.
Oxford (Home, 5/4) vs Southend
Oxford strangely are better away from home! Even with this, they should still beat Southend, who have not won in 6, and won only once away all season. Oxford’s home record reads won 1, drawn 2, lost 1 – but they have had some tough games in this spell, so don’t read too much into it. They are looking like a contender for the title this season, we expect a win.
Wimbledon (Home, Evs) vs Northampton
Wimbledon have picked up where they left off last season – and sit in the top 6. Northampton don’t seem to have recovered from the play-off’s and lie in 23rd, winless in the last 6, and having lost all four of their away game, scoring the grand total of no goals. Wimbledon on the other hand have won all four of their home games and 4 of the last 6. We think it’l be 5 home wins on the bounce!
Mansfield (Home, Evs) vs Hartlepool
Hartlepool have been dreadful this season so far, and it took them 5 games to even score a goal! Mansfield are in the ascendancy after promotion and have started extremely well, sitting in 3rd place, unbeaten at home and in the last 6 games. Hartlepool are yet to win away, and have won once in 6. Mansfield for us!
Braintree (Evs, Away) vs Hyde
It seems this season’s whipping boys are Hyde – no wins so far this season and 10 losses, similar to Telford last season. Braintree are in good nick – 3 wins from the last 6 both overall and away. Hyde have lost 6 on the spin overall, and just drawn one in 6 home games, losing the other 5. Cut and dried for us really.
Steaua Bucharest (Away, 23/20) vs Vaslui
Steaua have been in great form this season despite losing their three best players, namely Vlad Chiriches to Tottenham – but with Champions League money they could afford to get rid and bring in fresh talent. Vaslui have won 3/3 at home, but have not faced a stern test yet, and Steaua will provide this. Steaua to win for us.
Lokern (Evs, Away) vs Charleroi
Lokern pushed Standard to the edge a few weeks back, and look one of the better sides in the Jupiler League. Charleroi, fresh from promotion, look average at best, sitting in lower mid-table. Both have unpredictable home/away form, but with Lokern’s last few games being difficult that could set them in good stead for this one. Lokern to win!
Ried (Away, 6/4) vs Wolfsberger
Ried are up to an astonishing 2nd place so far this season – with the likes of both Vienna sides eating their dust at the moment. They have won 4 from 6 overall and only lost once in 5 games on the road. Wolfsberger ended last season well but have started poorly, conceding on average 3 a game in the last 6. Expect a Ried win…
Grodig (Home, 23/20) vs Sturm Graz
Grodig have only just come up, but they are making their mark in the Austrian Bundesliga – 3rd place and have taken points off the big boys! Sturm have been struggling for years, after being a top team for a long time! 23/20 represents great value, especially at home, where Grodig average 3 goals a game!
