Mythbusters: 4 double-chance football tips for Saturday
Adam Drury is backing four favourites to slip up this weekend in his football tips. If you fancy them all, back the 13/1 four-fold.
Had you placed a £10 stake on each of Adam Drury's Mythbusters football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Middlesbrough not to beat Reading
Reading have only lost at Sheffield United and Hull in their last eight away games, avoiding defeat at Sheffield Wednesday, Norwich and Bristol City.
The Royals have avoided defeat in nine of their last 11 matches overall, and know that one more point will guarantee their Championship survival.
Middlesbrough have won their last two home matches 1-0, but had lost their four previous games at the Riverside and were thumped 3-0 at Nottingham Forest last time out.
Scunthorpe not to beat Bradford
After a dreadful run of form that leaves them on the verge of relegation from League One, Scunthorpe have to be opposed at this price.
The Iron have won one, drawn three and lost eight of their last 12 matches, only beating a poor Southend side in their last six at Glanford Park.
The hosts are without a goal in 338 minutes, so Bradford – who drew 1-1 with Gillingham in their first game after relegation was confirmed on Monday – can frustrate them.
Sunderland not to beat Portsmouth
Having won seven consecutive league games, Portsmouth are a good bet to at least avoid defeat in a massive game at the top of League One.
Kenny Jackett’s side have lost just one of their last seven league away games, and overcame Sunderland (after a 1-1 draw in normal time) in the EFL Trophy final last month.
The Mackems have won just four of their 10 home matches against top-half opposition this season, and have already dropped points against Burton and Coventry at the Stadium of Light this month.
Cambridge not to beat Morecambe
Despite losing 4-0 at third-placed Mansfield last week, Morecambe have lost just three of their last 10 away games.
Jim Bentley’s side have avoided defeat in seven of their last nine overall, and beat Cheltenham 4-0 last time out on Monday.
Cambridge have scored just one goal on a run of six winless games at home.
