Johnstones Paint Trophy Tips & Betting PreviewFootball Betting Tips, VIP Gambler of the Day
The Johnstones Paint Trophy attempts to fill the void of international week, with a full fixture list from the second round featuring the best League One and Two have to offer.
As with any league cup competition you can find your coupon let down by a side whose manager has decided to make 10 changes, showing no compassion for your support of his team in the win market – but there are some interesting bets available.
One such punt is York to beat Coventry at home at 2/1. The Minstermen have stuttered a bit in the league recently, but did manage to hold promotion hopefuls Rotherham on Saturday and Gary Mills’ team have shown they can compete with League One opposition when taking Doncaster to penalties in the Capital One Cup.
What’s more it’s unlikely the Johnstones Paint Trophy is high on the Sky Blues’ list of priorities and having suffered an awful start to life in the third tier Lee Carsley and Richard Shaw may chose to rest his first choice players for the weekend.
Rochdale could join York in prevailing over superior opposition when Bury visit Spotland. The Shakers are still without a league win to their name and Dale are coming into the match on the back of a morale boosting 3-2 victory over local rivals Accrington Stanley.
Elsewhere Preston are fancied to beat Morecambe in the Lancashire derby at 6/5 while Crewe are a good price at 27/10 to knock out Shrewsbury.
With the nature of the competition being so unpredictable a Lucky 15 is advised so that your bets are not hamstrung by a single poor result.
