Town favourites for three points

Favourite backers were rewarded on Saturday when Paul Buckle’s side beat Macclesfield 4-1 at Kenilworth Road - and the Town are once more the favourites on Tuesday night when Cambridge United are the visitors.

After the weekend win the Hatters are 8/13 to record a second successive victory with league sponsors Blue Square.

Cambridge, who won 1-0 at Kenilworth Road last term, are 7/2 to win all three points whilst the draw can be backed at 11/4.

The U’s victory a year ago was their first ever in league competition at Kenilworth Road and it’s 11/1 that Jez George’s side win by the same scoreline this evening.

If you fancy the Town to win 4-1 for the second game running it’s 22/1, but it’s likely to be a tighter affair under the floodlights tonight. That’s not to say there won’t be goals and a 3-2 win can be backed at 25/1.

Blue Square are also offering 12 special markets. Of the dozen available only one really stands out and that’s the 7/1 about the Hatters winning having been behind at any point in the match.

In the goalscorer market it’s no surprise to see Stuart Fleetwood heading the betting having netted seven goals in six games this season. However, only two of his seven goals have been the first in the match and, therefore, it may be worth looking elsewhere to seek the value.  

Jake Howells, fresh from his first goal of the season on Saturday, is 18/1 to score first once more whilst Andre Gray, who also grabbed his first of the campaign at the weekend, is a 5/1 shot.

If Buckle sides with another three centre halves it might be worth a few pennies on one of Janos Kovacs, Dean Beckwith or Lathaniel Rowe-Turner at the bigger prices of 18/1, 25/1 and 40/1 respectively.

Remember, betting through Blue Square helps the Hatters and all the clubs in the division so what are you waiting for?
