League One Betting: Dons can upset the Black that is mighty cats

Good Evans it’s time to back Lincoln

Gillingham v Lincoln City
Friday 5th February, kick-off 18:00
Live on Sky Sports Football

Gillingham manager Steve Evans will get a chance to be in the spotlight on Friday evening when the Sky cameras travel to Kent, although the fiery Scot has already said he won’t be bothered by their presence.

However, more prescient, he described their opponents as the best team in League One, and whoever finishes above the Imps this term will be playing in the Championship next season. Praise indeed.

This will be a treat to see Lincoln on Sky, and a chance to assess how successful their counter-attack game is. They play with a relative back four that becomes a back seven very nearly whenever away from control. We saw the very best of them recently against Portsmouth in a giant 0-1 success at Fratton Park – a casino game that saw them patch together their passing with a pleasant patient style that is fluid.

Gillingham are more robust, physical and direct and are a price that is big 4.3100/30, but it is difficult to move away from just how well Lincoln are playing. Overseas they’ve won five in the spin , while maintaining objectives and opportunities to the very least. In reality with only five goals conceded on the way, they’ve the record that is best in the division.

KEY OPTA STAT: Lincoln have won their last five away league games; conceding just one goal in the process.

Expect a thriller at the Keepmoat

Doncaster Rovers v Oxford United

Doncaster and Oxford are the two form teams right now with both sparkling that is enjoying.

Oxford have finally got over their play-off hangover while having reeled down nine victories from their nine that is last in competitions – in the process shooting up the table to 10th.

The hosts earned plenty of merit points too following a 0-1 win at Lincoln City – a scalp that is huge. It had been difficult to obtain the ball from the Imps, but Darren Moore praised their protective work throughout the 90 moments to gather their 3rd sheet that is clean the spin.

There isn’t much between the pair in terms of betting with Donny at 2.6613/8 and Oxford at 3.02/1.

It could also be a game that is high-scoring you might be playing Over 2.5, as Oxford have actually netted 20 and conceded 20. Entertainment is in the cards, and I also have always been supporting the site visitors during the bigger cost.

KEY OPTA STAT: Oxford have actually won every one of their final league that is seven – their longest ever run in history.

Dons can upset the odds v Sunderland

MK Dons v Sunderland

The Sunderland Echo previewed the with a take on the performance of new manager Lee Johnson 10 games into his spell in charge as head coach weekend. Besides the xG dipping from 1.66 to 1.36, Johnson remains searching for some energy – one thing the Black Cats have actually struggled with for a true number of seasons in this division.

The attacking aspect of the game has improved, but they drew with Gillingham 2-2 recently at home – and those are the sort of matches they need to win if they are to have a chance of automatic promotion.

Saturday’s price at 2.447/5 for the visitors is a lot shorter than backing the hosts at 3.211/5 – who I think look value.

The Dons produced a lovely display that is footballing beat competitors Wimbledon final week-end, and additionally they finally was able to stop early objective too – one thing of an Achilles’ heel.

Russell Martin’s group could have most of the control because of this and considering they recently overcome Fleetwood at house 3-1, they appear appealing since the outsiders.

KEY OPTA STAT: MK Dons have just lost two of the final 11 house league games.
