Competition: League One
Market: Coventry win
Odds: 13/10 @ Bet 365
With a chance to jump back into the top-six, Coventry will host relegation contenders Oxford United on Friday night.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a 2-1 win away at fellow playoff hopefuls Peterborough last weekend, Coventry will be firmly believing they can secure back to back promotions this season. With Mark Robins’ side picking up a pair of victories in their last two outings and also just losing one matchup since the end of January, another victory on Saturday would see them climb into the playoff positions. Also recording a 2-1 win when they faced off against Oxford at the Kassam Stadium back in September, the Sky Blues should be confident of extending their winning run.
As for the visitors, while Oxford might have managed to pick up a much-needed 1-0 win at home to Bradford last weekend, Karl Robinson’s side still remain firmly at the heart of a relegation battle. Holding just a one point buffer from slipping into the relegation zone, it has been their form on the road really behind their struggles. Failing to win any of their last three matches away from the Kassam Stadium and scoring just one goal in over 300 minutes of away action, they have remarkably recorded just one League One away victory since April 2018.
Bet: Coventry 13/10 to beat Oxford United in Saturday’s League One matchup @ Bet 365
