FANCY A FLUTTER?

15 October 2013

Bet with Sky Bet... Great odds now available...

SKY BET League One leaders, Leyton Orient, continue to defy the odds as they kept ahead of the pack with a come-from-behind win to see off promotion rivals, MK Dons.

The O’s began the season as a 33/1 chance to win the title but after their latest triumph their odds have been cut again from 10/1 to 7/1 and from 9/4 to 7/4 to clinch promotion after opening the campaign as an 11/1 chance.

One bright spot for The Dons was another goal from Chelsea loanee, Patrick Bamford, his tenth in the League. He was 40/1 to finish the season as the top scorer in the division but those odds have already been slashed to 14/1.

Peterborough left it until four minutes from time to inflict defeat on Port Vale and remain just one point off the top. They are in from 9/4 to 15/8 for the title.

But it was not a great day for the chasing pack with Rotherham, Preston and Brentford all on the end of shock results.

The biggest upset came at the New York Stadium where Swindon roared to a 4-0 triumph – an outcome which began the day as an 80/1 shot.

Lowly Crewe had picked up just one point from their first five games on the road but, despite pre-match odds of 28/1, inflicted a 2-0 defeat on Preston - their first home defeat of the season.

Another promotion hopeful, Brentford, took the lead at Stevenage through Clayton Donaldson but two Francois Zoko strikes ended the home side’s run of six league games without a win. A 2-1 home win was ranked as a 12/1 shot.

Meanwhile, England take on Poland this evening in an important World Cup qualifier at Wembley.

England are odds-on to claim the win they need in order to guarantee automatic qualification for next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

With Ukraine highly likely to secure three points against San Marino, anything less than a win for England could see the Group H leaders drop into the play-offs. 

Roy Hodgson’s men are 1/4 to stay top of the group and 1/16 to qualify, but were in a near-identical situation back in 1973 and subsequently failed to beat Poland despite favourable odds.

On this occasion, though, the visitors have no chance of qualifying at England’s expense, with their only apparent motivation being to finish third in the group ahead of Montenegro.

The sides drew 1-1 in Wembley 40 years ago and it’s 10/1 for history to repeat itself, though aside from that result the Poles hold a poor head-to-head record with England, having beaten them just once in 18 attempts.

It was also 1-1 when the sides met last year, when Wayne Rooney opened the scoring - as he did against the Montenegrins on Friday – and the Manchester United forward is the favourite to continue that trend with his odds to net first Price Boosted to 9/2 (from 4/1).

Andros Townsend, who scored on his international debut, is 11/1 to score first and 4/1 to find the net in 90 minutes.

Poland’s Robert Lewandowski, who shone in last year’s Champions League campaign with Borussia Dortmund, is Boosted to 12/1 (from 9/1) to catch England cold and score the opener.
