The Machine has given WIGAN away at Burton as a bet this evening and I have taken the 8/11 avaialble.

Wigan are unbeated in 8 with 6 wins and 2 draws (only lost 1 in 12) and are looking good for pomotion if not the title. Their form v the lower teams in the league is astonishing having won 20 out of 21 games to teams lower than 14th . Burton are currently 17th.

Burtons current form is poor having lost 5 out of 7 with only 1 win v Fletwood. They have taken a few hammerings also of 5-2,4-1 and 3-0 in recent games all to teams below Wigan. They have lost all games to teams in top five apart from a draw with Plymouth 0-0 and there only saving grace is that their home form has been good but they have only 1 win against teams in the top 8.

AWAY WIN OF WIGAN at 8/11

Good luck if you give it a go

I think there's been an overreaction to Cambridge making seven changes to the team that beat Wigan the other day.

They've still got 7 regular first teamers in their side tonight and the other four have a future at the club.

It's not as if they're playing Rotherham away; this is a very poor Charlton team and 1.88 for the away win looks very short.

So, for the record, the odds 20 minutes before kick-off are:

Cambridge - 4.6
Charlton - 1.88
Draw - 3.9

Goodness knows how it was 0-0 for so long.

Cambridge could've been 2 or 3 up by HT and Charlton had good chances before they took the lead through an OG.

They got another via a big deflection to seal the win.

Thankfully, I was observing rather than betting. I still think Charlton were far too short(they came into 1.74), all things considered.

Dragon, I was thinking the same about Leicester, but they do have their European game next week, so, I think at the odds I will back them to also cover the draw as I can’t see Villa winning.

I will try an Exeter/Sutton double @ 2.72
also, add Sunderland for a treble @ 6.26

Notts Co. can surely win by at least a 2 margin tonight so  AH bet with -1.75 goals should be good for a profit

Anyone reckon Nottm. Forest could get a result tonight?
They are on a good run of 7 wins in last 8 games + only 1 defeat in last 13 + have conceded only 1 goal in last 5 games….Fulham have dropped points in 5 of last 8 games, so, I reckon Forest @ 2.42 on Asian Handicap with +0.25 goals could be worth a few quid.

Halifax look a decent bet tonight at 13/10 to beat Chesterfield.

Halifax won the corresponding fixture 2-0 on 18 April and Chesterfields form going into the playoffs is seriously dodgy scrapping through with a 0-0 draw at home on the last day on goal difference.They have only won 2 in 10 and they were both to very lowly teams.

I tought Halifax would be odds on and surprised to see 13/10 (WH). Prior to their last day defeat to champions Stockport they had  lost 1 in 9 and finished 4th in the League 10 points more than Chesterfield. They are undefeated at home inthe last 10 matches notching up 8 wins and 2 draws.

I know these play off can throw up strange results and that has to be factored in but I am happy to take 13/10 for the home win.

Good luck if you give it a go.
