League leaders are a huge price to win in Cheltenham on Saturday

| 03.03.2011

Chesterfield enhanced their title credentials with a midweek win over second-placed Wycombe Wanderers, and the 2/5 favourites for the title should have no problems at Cheltenham Town.

Considering they are nine points clear at the top of the league and have only lost two of their last 16 matches, Chesterfield are a huge price at 5/4 to beat a side that had gone eight games without a win until defeating Stockport County on Tuesday.

Cheltenham seem short at 21/10 considering they have never beaten Chesterfield in the ten-game head-to-head history, and their best hope of a result is the draw which has happened three times in those ten games.

Hereford United vs Bury

In another match that stands out for value, Bury travel to Hereford United as they look to consolidate their place in the top three and League Two’s form side are a huge price at 11/8 to register an away win.

While Hereford are enjoying a resurgence up the table after spending much of their time in the bottom two, their home form is awful with just two wins in 16 home games and they offer little value at 15/8 to win.

Hereford would take a repeat of the 1-1 draw between the two sides at Gigg Lane earlier in the season, and that is the favoured result at 11/2, but Bury’s form suggests a tight win for the Shakers.

Only three of the last 10 games have produced over 2.5 goals and under 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5, while a 2-0 win for Bury looks the pick of the market at 8/1.

A £25 double on Bury and Chesterfield would return £133.50. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
