Millwall might be top of the pops after League One’s opening weekend, but with more thrills and spills expected it could be all change come Sunday.
Although Millwall may only be atop of League One by virtue of their three goals against Oldham, the win was an impressive one nonetheless and if the Lions can repeat that form then MK Dons will have a rough ride on Saturday.
In fact, despite the Dons’ home advantage, a faultless opener combined with 4-0 midweek romp against Barnet will mean Millwall carry the psychological edge into the game.
Of course, MK Dons also claimed an opening win last week, so it should come as no surprise that a home win is 19/10. However, if you’re inclined to believe that seven goals in two games is enough to tip the balance, then 7/5 on a Millwall victory should be an attractive proposition.
Elsewhere in League One, Oxford United’s travel to Bristol Rovers as two newly promoted sides go head-to-head. In terms of firepower, both clubs had a modest start to the season with a single goal apiece last week.
However, while there might be little to choose between the club in terms of goals scored, the pre-match focus for many is the number of goals conceded. While Oxford let a goal slip against Chesterfield, Bristol’s backline was unable to stop a three-goal route away at Scunthorpe.
With Oxford proving to be the least vulnerable so far, 19/10 on an away win could prove exceptional value this Saturday. Of course, if you ignore Bristol’s away form and consider the Memorial Stadium a veritable fortress, then 7/5 for a Rovers win should tickle your fancy.
Standing out from the crowd in League Two this weekend is the battle of the Towns. With Luton notching up three goals away at Plymouth last week, the Hatters home fans will be expecting more of the same when their heroes return on Saturday.
However, with Yeovil managing a brace against Notts County, there could be very little to choose between these two sides. Indeed, with both sides making good starts, the result could easily go either way which is why you can currently get 10/13 on a Luton win and 7/2 on Yeovil.
If the result is too close to call, then we should be able to count on plenty of goals at Kenilworth Road. At present you can get 11/5 on over 3.5 goals which, given both side’s current goal ratio, is certainly within the realms of possibility.
