OLDHAM v Rochdale > 23/10 at Stan James
- Oldham somehow host local rivals Rochdale on Saturday as underdogs, even given home advantage and a cracking run of form at Boundary Park in 2017. Promotion chasing Bradford are the only sides to win there since mid December (1-2) and the Latics have now won seven in 11 on home soil. Bolton and Fleetwood have both lost to nil here in Oldham's last two, whilst leaders Sheff Utd and sixth place Millwall have also both failed to win there this calendar year. After just two away wins from 10 with six defeats along the way, we're not at all sure why Rochdale are favourites here. Bizarre pricing from the Bookies - take full advantage! The Latics are a massive 23/10 at Stan James.
Wrexham v DAG & RED > 5/4 at betway
- Dag & Red look a good price for what would be their third straight away win on Saturday following victories at Macclesfield and Boreham Wood already this month. The Daggers did lose their previous four on the road, but faced some very tough trips to the likes of Lincoln and Aldershot. They've won eight in 13 away from Victoria Road, and look a good bet for a second win of the season over Wrexham when they visit the Racecourse Ground on Saturday. The Red Dragons are without a home win in five, losing four against Gateshead, Maidstone, Tranmere and Aldershot - their only home point during that spell came in a 1-1 draw against 22nd place Torquay last month. The away win is 5/4 at betway.
ASTON VILLA v Birmingham > Evens at betway.
- Villa have lost their last two, including their last home match, but in fairness to Steve Bruce's men they have faced very tough opposition in Fulham and Reading. Previously, his men had won five straight home matches without conceding against the likes of promotion chasing Derby and Sheff Wed. Birmingham have been woeful since mid December, and their last away match saw them draw at already relegated Rotherham, despite the fact the Millers had lost their previous 10 league matches. Villa not at their best, but should still have enough to edge past a dire Birmingham side. Villa are Evens at betway.
