Accrington vs Bristol Rovers

The Crown Ground is the host of the 28th League One fixture of the season as Accrington Stanley take on Bristol Rovers in an important tie for both sides. Visitors Rovers need to follow up on their three wins from their last four with an eighth win of the campaign here to avoid slipping into the bottom four, whilst Stanley need to recapture their form of October in order to avoid slipping to a third-straight loss and one which could potentially see them spiral down the table. The hosts are the 11/10 favourites with Bet365, whilst the draw is 12/5 with Bet Victor and the visitors are the 23/10 outsiders with William Hill.

Recommended bet: Both teams to score @ 4/5 with William Hill – BET HERE

Barnsley vs Bradford City

It’s a battle of the in-form sides at Oakwell on Saturday afternoon as the impressive Barnsley look to make It four wins from their last five matches as they square off against a Bradford side who sit 21st in the table – but have managed to find two wins in their last two to be within touching distance of the safe zone. The sides have met twice already this term and the knowledge of each other’s sides should make for a good game, but it is Barnsley who’ve won both matches this term and in fact the last four meetings against Bradford. Barnsley are the 5/11 favourites with Bet365, whilst Bradford are the big outsiders at 5/1 with Betway and the draw is 10/3 with William Hill.

Recommended bet: Barnsley to win 3-1 @ 11/1 with Bet Victor – BET HERE

Burton vs Gillingham

The Pirelli Stadium is the host of an exciting match between ninth place Burton Albion and 19th place Gillingham on Saturday afternoon. The 26 matches played in the division so far this season haven’t exactly been kind to the visiting side and just eight wins and 14 losses from those matches is evidence of that. The relegation zone could be upon Gillingham if they do not win here and results elsewhere go against them and in front of them here is an in-form Burton, who have gone undefeated in their last four and galvanised their side to create a resurgence this term. The hosts are the 8/11 favourites with Bet Victor, whilst the draw is 11/4 with Bet365 and the visitors are a big 4/1 with Unibet.

Recommended bet: Over 2.5 goals @ 4/5 with Betfair – BET HERE

Coventry vs AFC Wimbledon

Coventry square off against AFC Wimbledon on Saturday afternoon at the Ricoh Arena and the game is a big one between two sides who lost their last match in the third-tier. Coventry sit in eighth having won three of their last four, but they’ll be hopeful of bouncing back on home soil after losing 2-1 away to Scunthorpe last weekend – whilst Wimbledon are now rock bottom of the table and they’re going to need the three points here as a minimum requirement if they hope to avoid being cut adrift by the rest of the relegation candidates. The hosts are an attractive 12/11 with Betfair, whilst the draw is 9/4 with William Hill and the visitors are a big price of 13/5 with Unibet.

Recommended bet: Coventry to score two goals @ 5/4 with Sky Bet – BET HERE

Fleetwood vs Oxford United

Highbury Stadium will play host to an important match this weekend as Fleetwood and Oxford square off in the 27th fixture of the season. The hosts have gone two matches without winning and three points is something they’re desperate for here in order to stay in the top-half, whilst Oxford arguably need the maximum points more so having lost their last three and currently finding themselves in the dreaded drop zone. The hosts met at the Kassam Stadium back in August and it was Fleetwood who ran out 2-0 winners and this week Bet365 price the hosts as 7/5 to do the double over their opponents, whilst the draw is 12/5 with the same bookmaker and the visitors are a big 2/1 with Betway to win.

Recommended bet: Oxford United double chance @ 1/2 with Unibet – BET HERE

Peterborough vs Rochdale

Promotion hopefuls Peterborough return to action this week as they hope to sweep aside their inconsistencies which has seen them drop out of the top-six against a Rochdale side who have lost their last three matches and now find themselves in 18th in the third-tier table. Both sides have shown glimpses of class this term, but neither have shown it on a consistent basis and three points will be imperative here – whilst the loser could see their form dip as a result. The hosts are the 11/10 favourites with Unibet, whilst the draw is 13/5 with the same bookmaker and the visitors are 9/4 with Bet Victor.

Recommended bet: Peterborough to win and btts @ 11/4 with Bet 365 – BET HERE

Portsmouth vs Blackpool

League leaders Portsmouth return to action this weekend as they look to make it three-straight wins with their 18th victory of the season against a Blackpool side who sit in 11th having had a poor run of results as of late. The match will be played at the famous Fratton Park and the hosts will be confident of picking up the three points to potentially extend their point tally at the top of the table – whilst former Premier League side Blackpool will be hoping for any sort of result to stop the rot and less might be said about their performance from their loyal fans. The hosts are the obvious favourites here and Bet 365 price Pompey as a 2/3 favourite, whilst the draw is 13/5 with the same bookmaker and the visitors are a big 9/2 with William Hill.

Recommended bet: Ronan Curtis to score first @ 9/2 with William Hill – BET HERE

Shrewsbury vs Charlton

Charlton travel to Greenhous Meadow off the back of a draw and a loss on Saturday afternoon as they take on hosts Shrewsbury – who have also looked better as of late having drawn two and won one match in their last four. The visitors have their sights firmly set on the three sides above them and it’ll certainly be a statement to the rest of the league if they can pick up their 15th win of the season here – whilst Shrews need the three points to avoid being sucked into the dreaded relegation zone after 27 matches. The hosts are 8/5 with Unibet to win, whilst the draw is 9/4 and the visitors are 9/5 to win – both with William Hill.

Recommended bet: Match to be drawn @ 11/5 with Betway – BET HERE

Southend vs Plymouth

Southend and Plymouth meet in Southend on Sea this weekend as two sides desperate for three points square off at Roots Hall. The hosts find themselves in tenth after 26 matches having won 11 games this season – whilst Plymouth’s mini-resurgence seems to have ended and a win is a must for them here in order for the visitors to move towards safety from the dreaded relegation zone which leads to the fourth-tier of English football. The teams met back in August and the reverse tie ended in a 1-1 draw and the same result here is an attractive 9/4 with Bet365 – whilst the hosts are evens to win with the same bookmaker and the visitors can be priced at an attractive 5/2 with Bet Victor.

Recommended bet: Both teams to score @ 7/10 with Bet 365 – BET HERE

Sunderland vs Luton

The game of the weekend in the third-tier comes from the Stadium of Light on Saturday afternoon as third place Sunderland take on second place Luton in a battle for a spot in the automatic promotion places. Both sides are in-form, with the Black Cats undefeated in their last four and Luton having not been beaten in the league since October, when they were edged out 3-2 against Barnsley. The teams met at Kenilworth Road back in August and the match ended 1-1 and the same outcome in terms of result here is an attractive 23/10 with Betfair – whilst the hosts are 7/5 with William Hill and the away side are 2/1 with Unibet.

Recommended bet: Sunderland to win 2-1 @8/1 with Unibet – BET HERE

Walsall vs Scunthorpe

15th plays 17th at Bescot Stadium on Saturday afternoon as Walsall take on Scunthorpe in an important match for both sides. The in-form visitors have won their last three and a fourth win in as many games would see them leapfrog their opponents and potentially go as high as 14th – whilst the Saddlers are in need of a win to end a poor run of results and three points could certainly kickstart 2019 for Walsall. The teams met at Glanford Park in August and the match ended 1-1, but both sides will be confident of picking up the three points in this one. The hosts are the 8/7 favourites with Bet Victor, whilst the draw is 9/4 with William Hill and the away side are the 14/5 outsiders with Bet365.

Recommended bet: Under 2.5 goals @ 7/9 with Bet Victor – BET HERE

Wycombe vs Doncaster

The final 3pm game of the League One weekend comes from Adams Park in High Wycombe as Wycombe Wanderers square off against Doncaster Rovers in a big game for both of these sides. The hosts are currently on a four-game losing streak and that has to be put to an end this week on home soil if they hope to avoid being sucked into the relegation fight – whilst Doncaster have gone under the radar into sixth place having picked up back-to-back wins over Gillingham and Rochdale – scoring eight goals combined – and they’ll be confident of another three points here to potentially see them as high as fourth in the table. The hosts are a big price of 23/10 with Unibet to win here, whilst the draw is 5/2 with Bet365 and the away side are the attractive favourites at 9/8 with Unibet.
