Mythbusters: 4 favourites to back against on Saturday
These underdogs from England and Scotland represent good value to defy the odds this weekend. If you fancy them all, back the 11/1 double chance accumulator.
Bradford not to beat Gillingham (15.00) –
Bradford’s 11-match winless run means they are not an attractive bet to beat Gillingham on Saturday.
Since star striker Charlie Wyke – who will miss this game with suspension – was sent off at Plymouth at the end of last month, the Bantams have failed to score a goal. Their record under new manager Simon Grayson is one draw and three defeats to nil.
Gillingham have won five and drawn one of their last eight away games, and have lost just two of their last 14 overall.
Charlton not to beat Plymouth (15.00) –
Plymouth are a brilliant bet to get something at Charlton, given the two teams’ respective form.
Argyle have lost only one of their last 17 matches – against promotion favourites Wigan – and have won seven of their last eight to move above Saturday’s opponents into the play-off spots.
Charlton temporarily replaced Karl Robinson with Lee Bowyer this week after a run of one win in eight matches.
Raith not to beat Airdrieonians (15.00) –
Second-placed Raith are winless in four, so there is value in backing them to not beat Airdrieonians on Saturday.
Raith have only won one of their last six away matches, and come into this game on the back of two successive defeats on the road.
Airdrieonians have only lost one home league match all season. They drew this fixture 2-2 in December, and are capable of at least claiming another point here.
Luton not to beat Barnet (17.15) –
Luton are on their joint-longest winless run since April 2015, after drawing consecutive away matches last week.
The Hatters have now gone five games without victory, and will find life difficult against a Barnet side that should be lifted under new management.
Martin Allen is back for his fifth spell in charge of the Bees, having previously played a part in two miraculous escapes from relegation to the National League. He also led the club back into the Football League in 2015.
