League One betting tips: Goals could flow as form teams meet

| 11.11.2021

Preview and odds for Saturday’s games

There are seven games in England’s third tier on Saturday and we look at a selection of those matches in our League One betting tips.

Most of the attention this weekend is on international football and there is a busy programme in League Two but there are some tasty games to look forward to in League One, starting in Suffolk.

Ipswich v Oxford

Two of the form teams in the division meet at Portman Road and this could prove to be an important meeting by the end of the season.

Oxford are top of the form table for the last six matches with five wins but Ipswich have managed four wins and a draw in that time so both teams will be full of confidence.

Ipswich trail their visitors by three places and four points but are the 6/5 favourites to narrow the gap while Oxford are 11/5 for the win with the draw 12/5.

The goals are flowing for Oxford but they have only managed three clean sheets, as have Ipswich who lead the way in the League One both teams to score table.

Thirteen of their 16 matches have featured goals at both ends while both teams to score has paid out in 11 out of 16 for Oxford so this has the makings of an entertaining match.

Both teams to score is an option for League One betting tips at 7/10 and over 2.5 goals is 20/23 while an Ipswich win and goals at both ends catches the eye at 16/5.

Sheffield Wednesday v Gillingham

Sandwiched between Ipswich and Oxford in the table are Sheffield Wednesday and they are another of the big guns in the division this season looking to get back to the Championship.

The Owls are two points outside the play-off places and need to be more ruthless.

They are on a six-match unbeaten league run (nine in all competitions) but have drawn four of those and were held 0-0 by Plymouth in the FA Cup last weekend.

Another draw on Saturday can be backed at 14/5 but this is a fourth straight home game for Darren Moore’s men in all competitions and they are yet to concede.

Wednesday are 33/20 to win to nil against the 19th-placed Gills, who have played six of the top seven and picked up just one point from those games.

Wycombe v Portsmouth

Wycombe and Portsmouth were both expected to be promotion contenders this season and while the Chairboys are going well in fourth, Pompey are languishing in 14th.

It is their away form which has let them down with just one win – at struggling Fleetwood – from eight road trips.

Pompey are unbeaten against teams in the bottom half of the table but have struggled against the better teams in the division and Wycombe fall into that category.

Wycombe slumped to a 4-1 defeat at home to Ipswich in their previous league game but had won five matches in a seven-game unbeaten run prior to that.

Gareth Ainsworth’s men are 11/10 favourites to get back to winning ways in League One betting tips while Portsmouth are 13/5, with the draw 12/5.

Wycombe have won six out of seven at home but conceded in four of those victories so a home win and both teams to score could be the way to go at 3/1.
