Robins 4/5 Favourites This Weekend

30 January 2014

A preview of the best odds available to you for this weekend's game with Sky Bet.

The Robins face off against Northampton Town and their new manager Chris Wilder this weekend.

A new manager and several new signings for the Cobblers has given them real hope that they can tear themselves off the bottom of League Two and start to climb the table. In their way however stands a Cheltenham Town side desperate to regain some form.

This will be the first time both sides have met at the Abbey Business Stadium since the play off semi-final back in May in which Northampton progressed only to be ripped apart by Bradford City at Wembley. Both teams are largely different now however and there are some interesting odds available through our betting partners Sky Bet this weekend.

A repeat of the 1-1 scoreline away at Sixfields Stadium earlier this season offers 5/1 odds. Cheltenham Town are the favourites however at 4/5 and a positive 2-1 victory for Mark Yates' side will fetch odds of 15/2.

There is the potential of course that fans could see a few goals in this one at the weekend with both managers eager for a win. 4/1 is currently available for Jamie Cureton to score first in the game or if you fancy recent debutant Michael Ihiekwe to score his first professional goal at any stage in the game then we recommend you snap up the odds of 12/1 now. It's not only Cheltenham that provide a goalscoring threat however and with Darren Carter returning to the Abbey Business Stadium you may fancy the former Robin to bite back against his previous employers. Darren Carter to score at any point in the 90 minutes is worth 9/2.

Other attractive odds include a draw at half time with Cheltenham winning at full time (7/2), a 2-2 draw (14/1) or Byron Harrison to be the last goalscorer during the 90 minutes (9/2).

If, however, you are feeling ultra positive and ambitious then why not take a chance on our bet of the weekend? Cheltenham Town to win 2-0 with Sam Deering to score first is currently worth 60/1 right now on Sky Bet.
