What are the odds?

30 August 2013

With a massive 40 goals last week, it’s odds on for another action packed weekend for Sky Bet League 1 teams. Read on for Title Sponsor, Sky Bet’s, take on MK Dons' chances this weekend.

It was a match of fluctuating fortunes for the Dons last Saturday as twice they had to come from behind to take a point against Bristol City. Patrick Bamford scored his second goal of the season and Samir Carruthers his first for the Dons since his arrival on loan from Aston Villa. It means that the Dons remain unbeaten for the season and now hope to pick up their first three points on the road.

The Dons may well return from Bramall Lane with at least a point because since the start of last season, they’ve lost only three games when travelling to teams in the bottom-half as Sheffield United currently are. Furthermore, Sheffield United have won only 3 of 13 home games against mid-table teams like the Dons, with 7 of 13 finishing all square. The Dons can be backed with Sky Bet at 17/10 for the win, 11/8 in the Draw No Bet market and 4/6 with a goal advantage on the handicap.

Since the start of last season, Sheffield United’s games at home to mid-table teams have been low scoring with 10 of 13 having less than three goals and seven under 1.5 goals. The Dons trips to bottom-half teams have had an even split of Over/Under goals since the start of last season. Under 2.5 goals is 4/6 with Sky Bet and Under 1.5 goals 2/1.

Other Reasons To Bet:

- There have been under 2.5 goals in the last three matches between MK Dons and the Blades
- Dons have been winning at half-time in three of their last four away matches against bottom-half opposition
- MK Dons have won three of their last four games against bottom-half teams
