Lay Ipswich to beat Millwall @ 2.166/5
For all you hear about the intimidation factor of The Den, it was Millwall's away form which led them out of the relegation zone late last season and was key to their climb into the play-off places at the start of this one. They are unbeaten in six road trips, winning four, and those were at some of the division's biggest clubs: Nottingham Forest, Wigan, Middlesbrough, QPR, Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Ipswich - who were the only team that Millwall conquered during their grimmest 14-match sequence of 2013/14 - haven't lived up to the promise of their televised opening-day triumph over Fulham. They haven't won any of their five encounters since, exiting the Capital One Cup to Crawley and spilling Championship points against the likes of bottom-half Reading and Birmingham.
Lay Chesterfield to beat Scunthorpe @ 1.9420/21
There are six odds-on hosts in League One so it was always going to be one of those that made it into this column, with Chesterfield earning the nod. Though the Spireites pipped Scunthorpe to the League Two title last term by three points, the latter's lengthy second-half-of-the-season undefeated streak and strong transfer window hinted that they would adapt better on their third-tier return.
The early evidence has been to the contrary, with Chesterfield six points better off, yet Scunthorpe are beginning to adapt, beating Walsall and holding Yeovil within their last three games. Perhaps they were just unfortunate to face the likes of Bristol City and Preston so early. The Iron haven't lost to Chesterfield in a dozen meetings, overcoming them in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy 11 days ago.
Lay Accrington (draw no bet) to beat AFC Wimbledon @ 1.981/1
Unlike League One, there isn't a single odds-on favourite in League Two, inspiring this column to exploit Accrington's slim frontrunner status in their clash with AFC Wimbledon by opposing them in the draw no bet market. If they draw, your stake is returned; if they lose, your account balance gets a nice boost.
From the AFC Wimbledon perspective, their travelling record commands respect, with three away dates delivering two victories and a draw. They won two of their final three in 2013/14 too. As for Accrington, they have lost six from eight in all competitions in 2014/15, conceding an average of over two goals per match, and lost their popular manager James Beattie the day before this fixture.
