Bet on Swindon vs Bristol Rovers – Rovers are League One’s form side

| 11.10.2010

Swindon host Bristol Rovers on Monday night and Danny Wilson hopes the victory against Torquay in the Johnstons Paint Trophy will trigger a winning run.

Swindon currently sit 19th in League One with 12 points from their opening ten games, but just seven points separate them and Carlisle in second place as the League One betting market proves tricky.

Match Odds

Bristol Rovers are three points above Swindon in fourteenth place and have proved tough to beat on their travels thus far this season with two wins, two draws and a loss to Oxford in their five away games.

Only league leaders Brighton have won more points in their last five games (11), than Bristol Rovers (10), and the Pirates are a big price at 13/5 to win on Monday.

Swindon have been inconsistent in their start but at 25/1 to win League One, cannot be ruled out of producing a string of results that would see them move quickly up the League One table.

Swindon are 1/1 to beat Bristol Rovers but their last home defeat, 3-2 to Plymouth, meant the Robins defence had conceded as many in one game, than they had in the previous four home games this season.

Total Goals

Bristol Rovers dominated both of their ties with Swindon last season winning 4-0 at home and 3-0 away and a repeat of that 3-0 scoreline on Monday is 33/1.

Will Hoskins is Rover’s top scorer in the league this season with five goals, but Jo Kuffour and Jeff Hughes both scored against Swindon last season and are 9/4 and 3/1 respectively to score any time.

Swindon have been involved in just one game this season where they have failed to score, the 0-0 draw with Carlisle, and Vincent Pericard is their main goal threat in the first goalscorer betting market – he is 5/1 to score first.

The draw is available at 5/2. See the full Swindon vs Bristol Rovers match betting odds market here.
