So, for most of us it’s our 4th day off in a row. Boom! What could be better than landing a nice little acca the day before we go back to work? This acca takes advantage of a couple of different markets today. Namely ‘draw no bet’ and the handicap market. Don’t worry, all is explained in each bet below and adds up to a nice 2/1 treble at SkyBet. Enjoy!
Crewe v Bradford City 3.00pm
Looking at the form table, this clash shows two teams heading in completely different directions. Hosts Crewe (24th 30pts) have managed to accumulate a paltry 2 points in their last 6 matches and haven’t tasted victory since early December.

Visitors Bradford (6th 61 pts) are 3rd in the 6 game form table – collecting 13 points from a possible 18 and fresh from a 1-0 victory over promotion pushing Millwall at the weekend.
Both teams will be looking to win this to give hope to their different causes (survival and promotion respectively) but you have to fancy the form side here. I’ll take Bradford draw no bet just to add a little insurance.

Plymouth v York
Plymouth’s promotion plight has wobbled recently, but I think they are back on track after Saturday’s 2-0 away win at Morecambe.
Prior to that victory The Pilgrims had picked up just 1 point from games against other promotion contenders Luton, Accrington, Oxford and also lost to mid table Barnet.
Today they face a York side who have lost 6 of their last 8, picking up just 2 points in the process. After taking a comfortable 2-1 win in the reverse fixture in November, Plymouth will be looking to do the double over their opponents and also take steps to secure automatic promotion to League 1. Home win.

Leyton Orient v Hartlepool
Now I’m going against the grain here but I’ll explain why. Leyton Orient are around 4/6 to win this game and when you look at the league table you’d probably agree with that quote (8th v 21st). Look a little closer though and you can spot a bit of value.
Orient aren’t in the best of form at the moment. A bit patchy lets say. Yes they beat Oxford 1-0 but they’ve also lost to Luton and Accrington by the same scoreline in recent weeks.
Now look at Hartlepool. They’re a team intent on beating the drop. They’re undefeated in their last 5 (taking 12 points) and will be trying to transform into a mid-table side come the end of the season.
They beat Leyton Orient 3-1 back in November, and while I’m hopeful of them doing the same again, it’s not the bet I’m going to advise. What I like is Hartlepool with a bit of a head start. Two goals to be precise. As long as they don’t lose by 2 clear goals then the bet is a winner.
