Marathonbet’s Football League weekend preview

We love delivering huge odds – it’s what we’re known for. So let’s continue the trend with another tasty price to tickle your fancy in the form Burnley to beat Derby on Monday night (27/10 with Marathonbet).

The Clarets visit the iPro on the back of four straight wins in the Championship and look focused in their bid back to the Premier League. Sean Dyche’s side are playing fluid football and have the character needed to scrap out league victories.

Derby are also trotting along nicely thanks to in-form striker Chris Martin and are too fighting their way up the table – all their matches so far this campaign have been either won or lost by a single goal or finished goalless.

But one glaring statistic is too prominent to ignore. Derby haven’t beaten Burnley in the league since a slender 1-0 win in the 2006/2007 Championship season. The two sides have played each other ten times since then and Burnley have won eight of them.

Burnley to beat Derby at 27/10 – almost 3/1 – looks like an early Christmas present from Marathonbet. And 71/100 to win or draw against The Rams also looks overpriced.

Considering their form right now Brighton and Hove Albion are also an easy pick. The Seagulls are soaring high at the top of the Championship and remain the only unbeaten team in the league. Chris Hughton has turned the club around and for the first time in years, Albion look like serious promotion contenders.

They’re a good price at 11/5 to beat Wolves away on Saturday with Marathonbet and 59/100 to win or draw. Consider backing Brighton and Burnley to both win in a super-value double priced at nearly 11/1.

Elsewhere, Gillingham are leading the pack in League One and like Brighton also remain unbeaten. But they visit Colchester next – a side they’ve only beaten once in the last 11 fixtures.

That record stretches back to 2005 and despite Colchester’s slow start to the season, Tony Humes’ side haven’t had much trouble finding the back of the net. They’ve scored in more than 70% of their games this campaign so both teams to score and the game to finish a draw is 71/20.

And finally no team is feeling the pace in League Two more than Newport. Terry Butcher takes his struggling team to Victoria Road for a bottom-of-the-table-clash with Dagenham in what could be a season-defining fixture. A win could give Newport the momentum they need to put a serious run together – they’ve lost six of seven games so far – but defeat threatens to shatter any confidence The Exiles have for the rest of the campaign.

The good news is Newport have never lost away to Dagenham in the league. Back them to beat Dagenham and both teams to score with Marathonbet at a decent 53/10.

And if you fancy having a week to remember, Burnley, Brighton and Newport to win and Gillingham to draw offers a mighty accumulator price of 141/1.
