13th September Picks
Posted on September 13th, 2014
Peterborough @1.7 vs Notts County
Table toppers Peterborough have been fantastic this season, their only loss coming to a decent Sheffield United side in a narrow 2-1. They score plenty of goals and a re typically very good against teams below them. Notts County haven’t been terrible this season by any means, but are yet to get a result against any sides in the same sort of form as their opponents this weekend. I think home advantage might not count for as much here as some games this weekend, but Peterborough have the quality to win this game comfortably. I think County could do OK this season, but they won’t be fighting against teams like the Posh.
Luton vs Cheltenham @2.9
After reaching 101 points in the conference last season and thus gaining promotion, many tipped Luton to do much better than they have been in this year’s campaign. They’ve only scored 4 goals int he League, and sit in 20th having not won since the opening day. They lost to Plymouth and Shrewsbury in their recent fixtures, and you would expect Cheltenham to offer an even greater threat. The away side have been on a great run, unbeaten so far, and sit 2nd in the table. None of their wins have been overly convincing, with all 4 coming by a single goal margin, but look like they have enough to beat Luton at great odds here.
Telford vs Barnet @1.6
Barnet are the form team in the Conference, they’ve scored 21 goals in their 8 games and have won 7. The likes of MacDonald, Cook and Akinde at times look too good to be playing in this division. Telford on the other hand are poor, and sit second bottom without a win so far this season and only 2 points. It would really be an unexpected result if the away side didn’t win here. Barnet -1 is @2.5 which seems like good value for a team that can easily score goals in this division away from home, against a team who have conceded the second most in the division.
