Robins Firm Favourites This Weekend

27 August 2014

The latest Sky Bet odds ahead of this weekend's home match with Hartlepool United.

Cheltenham Town take on Colin Cooper's Hartlepool this weekend and it looks as though the Robins are firm favourites with Sky Bet.

Our clash with Hartlepool promises to be an entertaining affair with the visitors picking up their first win of the season just last week at AFC Wimbledon but Cheltenham Town have been in strong form and will be confident of getting another positive result in front of the home support.

Cheltenham Town are strong favourites with odds of 1/1 but you fetch odds of 11/4 for the Hartlepool win and for a draw there are odds of 23/10.

This fixture was played back in December last season and it ended as a 2-2 draw. The same scoreline here this weekend is worth 12/1 right now on Sky Bet and is perhaps worth a bet. If you think the Robins can make it a fifth league victory in a row then perhaps 2-0 at 8/1 is tempting. Hartlepool will be tough to beat however and a 1-1 draw looks good value at  5/1.

None of the Robins goalscorers from our two fixtures last season are still with the club but Hartlepool's Jonathan Franks scored a brace here last season and for him to score first this weekend you can get odds of 8/1. Koby Arthur is pushing for a start right now after his second goal of the season last weekend and if you think the young Birmingham forward can score first then the odds of 6/1 are great value. It's about time however that captain Matt Taylor got off the mark though and for Matt to score at any point during the game you have odds of 7/1.

There are plenty of interesting odds available right now on Sky Bet and we have picked out just a few for you to take advantage of this weekend.

- Omari Sterling-James to score first 16/1
- Cheltenham Town to win 1-0, 2-0, or 2-1 2/1
- Matt Richards to score and for Cheltenham to win 6/1

Our big bet of the weekend however is going to be Byron Harrison to score first and Cheltenham to win 3-1. That bet will give you odds of 60/1.
