Wolves v Notts County: Hosts will shoot down Magpies
The Midlands club are hot favourites at 11/10 to take the third tier crown and make an immediate return to the Championship.
This year marks their Johnstone’s Paint Trophy debut, and after sneaking through an awkward derby clash with Walsall in the first round they are as short as 4/7 to dismiss Notts County.
The Wanderers’ recent success has owed as much to their solid defensive displays as to their prowess in front of goal.
With no goals conceded in their preceding three matches and just six strikes against their name in the league, it is safe to say that a stable base has proved pivotal in their run of form.
With this in mind, backing the home side to keep a clean sheet at 13/10 looks remarkable value, while a win to nil for the Molineux outfit can be backed at the even better price of 17/10.
The host’s last two wins have come by two goals or more, while only three teams have conceded more than the Nottingham side this term, making Wolves with a handicap of -1 at 29/20 a tempting proposition.
Leigh Griffiths has notched three in his last two outings and he is 7/2 to open the scoring.
However, Jackett may take the option to rest his star man for this tie and it may be wise to plump for highly-rated Welshman Jake Cassidy to kick-start the scoring at a healthier looking 5/1.
Those with strong allegiances to Chris Kiwomya’s men can get an unlikely away victory at 5/1, but it will take great faith to get behind a club who have taken just a point away from Meadow Lane this term.
Anyone looking to back a Wolves win in an accumulator should opt for the Ladbrokes Price Boost coupon, where they have boosted to 4/5 when selected in a five fold or more!
