The best odds on Sky Bet available ahead of our away day at Rochdale.
Cheltenham Town will have a task on their hands this weekend with Rochdale still hunting for promotion.
Keith Hill's Dale are very much in the race for automatic promotion and the title but they know they will need to be wary of a Robins side fresh off the back of a solid win away at Mansfield and with no real pressure on their shoulders.
Cheltenham Town are currently valued at 15/4 to defeat Rochdale this weekend and a draw is worth 3/1 at present. If you think Rochdale will continue their chase for promotion with three points though then you can get odds of 4/6 as firm favourites.
Both teams have faced each other many times over the years but the most recent encounters was here at Whaddon Road back in October. The Robins had started that game really well with Troy Brown taking the lead after 63 minutes but Dale struck back late on with two goals to win the game. A 2-1 scoreline for Rochdale on this occasion is currently at odds of 7/1 but we are positive here in the media department and we believe a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the Robins is a far better shout at odds of 14/1. A draw would be a good bet however and at 10/1 a 0-0 stalemate would certainly be worth a pound.
Troy Brown of course scored the first goal in our last meeting with Rochdale and for that to happen again you can collect odds of 18/1 at present! If you think it's more likely that Jamie Cureton will add to his goal tally though then he is 8/1 to score first. If you think however that Sam Deering can pick up his first ever goal for the Robins then odds of 11/2 at any point during the 90 minutes is well worth it.
There are some great odds right now on Sky Bet but we have picked out a few more which could represent great value ahead of the game on Saturday:
- Cheltenham to win and both teams to score? 17/2
- The game to end with a 1-1, 2-2 or 3-3 draw? 4/1
- Byron Harrison to score first? 8/1
Our bet of the weekend however will be Matt Richards to score first and for Cheltenham Town to win 1-0 and that is currently worth 105/1 on Sky Bet. If you do take on our challenge, and if you are successful, then send proof of your winning bet to the media department (firstname.lastname@example.org) and you could win 2 match tickets to a future Cheltenham Town home fixture.
