Robins Win Valued At 7/4

6 February 2014

The best odds on Sky Bet available to you ahead of the big game away at York this weekend.

York may be favourites on Sky Bet, but the Robins have something to prove away at Bootham Crescent this weekend.

The Minstermen are valued at 7/5 for the victory on Saturday and Cheltenham are available at 7/4 but the noise coming out of the Abbey Business Stadium has been largely positive this weekend and let's not forget that the Robins away from home do tend to be a more potent performer.

There will however be an added spice to this match with the presence of former Robins Keith Lowe and Russ Penn in the York starting line-up and both have good odds to score at any point during the 90 minutes with odds of 12/1 and 5/1 respectively. If, however, you are more than confident of the Robins taking first blood in this encounter then why not opt for Matt Richards to score first on the day with odds of 11/1 - great value especially with the midfielder first choice with freekicks and penalties.

With both clubs battling away in mid-table right now you would be forgiven for thinking this could be a tight match this weekend and the last three games between the teams only strengthens that theory. Since York's promotion back into the Football League, they have drawn three games from three (0-0, 1-1 & 2-2) against Mark Yates' Robins. A 1-1 draw this weekend will give you odds of 5/1. If you feeling positive however then you can also take a punt on Cheltenham Town winning this one with a scoreline of 2-1 and this is valued at 9/1.

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 this weekend:

- Cheltenham Town to be winning at half time but a draw at full time? 14/1
- The Robins to score within the first 10 minutes? 7/1
- Lee Lucas to score his first professional goal at any stage within the 90 minutes? 11/1

If you're feeling ambitious however then why not try our bet of the weekend? Byron Harrison to score first and Cheltenham Town to win 3-2 is currently available at 150/1 on Sky Bet.
