NTT20 Saturday Football Acca: Ipswich to shine in 15/2 boosted treble

Mansfield boss Nigel Clough
Nigel Clough's Mansfield look a poor price at home to Oldham

With no Championship action this weekend the NTT20 Podcast team are in Leagues One and Two for Saturday's treble, boosted to 15/2 on the Betfair Sportsbook...

"Mansfield's underlying numbers show that the run of poor form is based in bad performances rather than bad luck, and there seems little reason why they should be so short in a game between two poor sides."

Tractor Boys can mow down Shrewsbury

Ipswich v Shrewsbury
Saturday, 15:00

Ipswich's season looked like it was finally going to get up and running after a 6-0 win against Doncaster, but an abject performance at Accrington in a 2-1 loss, in which they failed to have a single shot after taking the lead in the 37th minute, brought Paul Cook's side crashing back to earth.

They should have enough here though to see off lowly Shrewsbury, and it's this poor form that gives us a backable price. Ipswich's embarrassment of riches should see them shorter than 3/4 to win this game, especially when considering that their opponent have just one point from five away games this season.

Kyle Edwards' return to the side should provide a welcome boost too given his early season form prior to picking up an injury, and Shrewsbury's pressing style may well play into the home teams' hands with rare space to exploit in behind. The heavy odds-on may not excite everyone, but it's good value on Town to get back-to-back home wins.

Back Ipswich to beat Shrewsbury @ 3/4

Take on the hosts in battle of poor sides

Mansfield v Oldham
Saturday, 15:00

Stags fans will be hoping that the visit of fellow League Two strugglers Oldham will provide an ample opportunity to arrest a slump that sees Nigel Clough's side winless in their last 10 in all competitions, but the 4/5 on a home win is plenty short enough.

Oldham themselves look to be improving, with a win at Rochdale and improved performances against Hartlepool and Harrogate showing a side who are at least competitive at the level, which was not the case a few weeks ago.

Mansfield's underlying numbers show that the run of poor form is based in bad performances rather than bad luck, and there seems little reason why they should be so short in a game between two poor sides.

Back Oldham or Draw @ 10/11

Home woes to continue for Walsall

Walsall vs Salford
Saturday, 15:00

After a stuttering start to the campaign, Salford City's season can be sparked into life with a second consecutive league win on Saturday.

Gary Bowyer's side made light work of Colchester last weekend, with front two Tom Elliott and Brandon Thomas-Asante too much to handle.

Walsall are a marginally tougher test, but the Saddlers are struggling to put together good performances - they've conceded two goals in each of their last three leagues games, and are relying on young striker George Miller to provide moments of quality.

Salford are a more all-round team, very strong when it comes to pressing high and creating chances. With a starting XI that is, on paper, one of the best in the league, their quality should be too much for a Walsall side whose home fans aren't too impressed with what they're seeing at the moment.

Back Salford to beat Walsall at 6/5
