MyBetBuddy’s EFL expert takes a look at the weekend’s League One games and picks out his best bets.
Sunderland vs Portsmouth – Draw @ 3.0
Sunderland have earned a reputation of being draw specialists in League One. They had a league high 19 in 2018-19. Both of the Black Cats’ results this campaign have been draws too, against Oxford United and Ipswich Town.
Three of the five fixtures between these two ended in draws with one win apiece. The last match between them finished 0-0, 3.0 for another draw is very generous.
Lincoln City vs Southend United – Lincoln Win @ 1.83
Lincoln are currently top of League One after very impressive victories against Accrington Stanley and Rotherham United. Danny and Nicky Cowley have picked up this season in League One where they left off last campaign in League Two.
Southend have struggled thus far. The Shrimpers have lost both of their opening games this campaign. Kevin Bond’s side will not be relishing a tough trip to Sincil Bank as they try to break out of this form.
Doncaster Rovers vs Fleetwood Town – BTTS YES @ 1.80
Both of these sides have had both teams score in each of their opening games.
Doncaster have had two 1-1 draws with Rochdale and Gillingham respectively.
Fleetwood have been more exciting though. They have won both of their first games. A 2-1 win over Wimbledon and a 3-1 away win over Peterborough on the opening day has set the standards for Joey Barton’s side this season.
Coventry City vs Bristol Rovers – BTTS NO @ 1.80
Bristol Rovers are yet to score a goal in the league this season. Their opening games have been a 2-0 defeat to Blackpool and a 0-0 draw with Wycombe Wanderers.
Coventry have also struggled for goals in their two openers. A narrow 1-0 win over Southend and a 0-0 draw against a Bolton Wanderers side full of youngsters.
Everything is pointing towards a low action affair here.
Wycombe vs MK Dons – Wycombe to Win @2.25
Gareth Ainsworth’s Wycombe have had a great start to the season in League One. Two clean sheets and four points sees them sit fourth after two games.
Adams Park was a fortress at times last season as Wycombe secured a club record six home league wins in a row. Home form will be crucial for the Chairboys this season if they are to avoid another relegation battle.
