Mythbusters: 4 double-chance football tips for Saturday
Adam Drury is backing these four favourites to slip up this weekend in his football tips. If you fancy them all, back the 11/1 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:
Burton not to beat AFC Wimbledon (15:00)
An early red card gave Burton little chance against Oxford last weekend and ensured they are now six games – four, if you discount the League Cup semi-final tie against Manchester City – without a victory.
Nigel Clough’s side won’t have it easy at AFC Wimbledon, whose run of just four defeats from 10 includes an FA Cup victory over West Ham and last week’s close 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.
The Dons have lost just two of their last eight matches at Kingsmeadow and rank among the best-performing defences in the division, according to experimental361.
Charlton not to beat Southend (15:00)
The front two of Lyle Taylor and Karlan Grant have been a huge influence in Charlton’s promotion bid, so the absence of both – Grant after he was sold to Huddersfield and Taylor due to suspension – is damaging to their prospects here.
The pair have scored 29 of the Addick’s 47 league goals this season, with Lee Bowyer’s side failing to do much in attack without them in a 1-0 defeat to Fleetwood last week.
Southend have won two of their last three away games to nil and should fancy their chances of repeating the trick here.
Portsmouth not to beat Plymouth (15:00)
Portsmouth have slipped out of the League One automatic promotion positions after going four league matches without a victory.
Kenny Jackett’s side also lost 2-0 at QPR in the FA Cup on Tuesday, and the south-coast club will not have it easy against an improving Plymouth on Saturday.
The Pilgrims have won five of their last six matches, including a 1-0 win at Peterborough last week, and have lost just two of their last eight at Adams Park.
Espanyol not to beat Rayo Vallecano (17:30)
Espanyol are on a dreadful run of nine defeats and one draw from their last 11 league games and should not be backed to fare much better on Saturday.
The hosts rank 19th for xPts in that period, suggesting that they have not suffered from bad luck, and take on a side in good form.
Rayo Vallecano had won four and drawn one of their previous five matches before losing 2-1 to Leganes last weekend, despite dominating the xG count.
