Saints to go marching on past MK Dons in League One

| 02.04.2011

Southampton have been pretty invincible at home since October and this makes 8/13 a great price in the League One betting that the MK Dons are beaten at St Mary’s.

The Saints are unbeaten in seven home games in the league, winning on six occasions, while they have taken maximum points in 16 of their last 19 outings at St Mary’s.

However, the MK Dons will make the trip south high on confidence as they have strung together an eight-game unbeaten run.

Furthermore, the MK Dons have not been defeated in eight on the road, which has helped their charge into the play-off places.

It is 9/2 that the MK Dons beat Southampton, with the draw priced at 11/4.

There are also some important fixtures at the foot of the table, most notably at the County Ground where Swindon desperately need a win at home to Hartlepool.

Swindon are seven points from safety after going 17 league games without a win, but could beat a Hartlepool team that themselves have suffered three straight defeats.

It is 6/5 that Swindon beat Hartlepool and 11/5 that the visitors collect a third successive away victory over Swindon.

Elsewhere, it is hard to call a winner in the encounter between Notts County and Oldham, but the game witnessing a maximum of two goals being scored seems an absolute certainty.

Notts County have looked short of creativity of late by scoring just one goal in their last seven games, while Oldham have drawn blanks in ten of their last 11 league fixtures.

It is 8/11 that the game sees under 2.5 goals scored, while 9/1 also looks great value that the outcome is goalless.

A £20 stake on Southampton beating MK Dons 2-1 would return £140. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
