MyBetBuddy’s EFL expert takes a look through the weekend’s League Two fixtures and picks out his five best bets.
Bradford City vs Forest Green Rovers – BTTS YES @ 1.73
Two of League Two’s better teams will come against each other at Valley Parade on Saturday afternoon. Bradford look to be hitting form now. After drawing their opening two games, they have won their most recent two and sit second in the league.
Forest Green lost midweek 2-1 at Port Vale. Mark Cooper’s men loved a BTTS last season and have had two already this campaign. Two good attacking teams coming up against each other suggests that there will be goals.
Cambridge United vs Oldham Athletic – Cambridge Win @ 2.20
Oldham have picked up just the one point from their opening four league games and currently sit in the relegation zone. They have looked far from convincing and are almost guaranteed to be in a relegation battle this season.
Cambridge have had an unbeaten start to the campaign and currently occupy one of the automatic promotion places. Based on that alone, with home advantage, 2.20 seems a very reasonable price.
Leyton Orient vs Crawley Town – BTTS YES @ 1.73
Leyton Orient showed in their 3-2 win over Mansfield Town in midweek that they are a side capable of both scoring and conceding. Orient defended terribly as they handed Mansfield two penalties, but then showed their attacking capabilities by scoring three second half goals against a side fancied for promotion by many.
It feels like BTTS comes in every week with Crawley. In fact, it has come in on three out of their four matches this campaign. Goals look to be a certainty here.
Mansfield Town vs Stevenage – Danny Rose to Score @ 2.40
Mansfield’s Danny Rose is currently the top scorer in the whole of England with five goals in four league games. New manager John Dempster has opted to bring him back into the team after Rose fell out of favour with previous boss David Flitcroft last season. The deadly poacher is showing Flitcroft what he missed out on and is proving too hot for League Two defenders to handle so far.
Plymouth Argyle vs Walsall – BTTS YES @ 1.67
Plymouth come into this game off the back of an entertaining 2-2 draw with Salford City. Ryan Lowe loves his team to be attacking and dominate the ball so there is no doubt that the Pilgrims will get chances against Walsall.
Walsall may have to play on the counter attack here but that should not be a problem for Darrell Clarke. New signing Coalan Lavery is a talented attacker with pace, so counter attacking may be a good tactic for him to find the net.
