Cambridge v Coventry – Saturday 15:00
Coventry looked like promotion contenders after their first two games as they won both whilst scoring five without reply, and after a winless spell of three games where they failed to find the net, the Sky Blues have since won their last two without conceding again. However, three of these four victories have come at the Ricoh Arena, as their struggles on the road continue from their relegation season in League One where they had the worst set of away results (W1-D5-L17). With this in mind, we’re not sure they offer much value, especially as Cambridge are W3-D1-L1 over their last five, keeping a clean sheet in four of these. In fact, five of Cambridge’s seven games this term have had no more than one strike, whilst each of Coventry’s seven games have seen at least one team fail to score and the last six of these featured two goals or fewer. We think the value lies in backing both teams to score – no, though Cambridge/under 2.5 goals certainly holds some appeal for those who want to get the hosts onside.£10 Free Credit and a £500 Deposit Bonus
Crawley v Notts County – Saturday 15:00
After consecutive wins against Swindon and Yeovil, Crawley fans have been brought back down to earth by picking up one point from their last two, leaving them with four defeats from seven. Their home form has to be of particular concern as they’ve won just twice over their last 14, losing eight (57%), whilst their opponents here are on a run of five wins from six unbeaten games, and have even kept clean sheets in each of their last three. Notts County only drew once on the road last term (W9-D1-L13), but travelling to bottom eight sides were W4-D1-L3. Crawley both finished in the bottom eight and are one of the favourites for the drop this term, and we think siding with Notts County is the best way to go in this one.
Swindon v Stevenage – Saturday 15:00
A positive start for Swindon where they won two of three unbeaten games has somewhat dissipated as they’ve gone on to lose three from four since, including home ties with Barnet and Crawley. In fact, they’re yet to win at The County Ground this term, and only gained one more home point than Chesterfield (who had the worst record in League One) last season as they were relegated themselves. Stevenage have seven points from a possible nine on the road so far, and are actually W5-D5-L2 over their last 12 away, and with that in mind we wouldn’t have them as big odds as they are, though we’re going to take some cover for the draw by backing them on the double chance.
