Championship, League 1 and League 2 stats and best bets – Monday 18th April

Although the best bets in this write up are backed up by statistics they are not certainties and still could lose. I will use the statistics to point out likely events in these games, and the best bets are the types of bets that I believe stand a good chance of coming in. The best bets will vary in price as this is a case of taking what the stats give us, rather than trying to force bets for the sake of it. I will be as transparent as possible in each write up about why I feel each bet is best bet material. All bets are rated on a 1-3 points system of how strong we believe the chance of it happening is, with 3 being the strongest. This is just an indication of my confidence and should not be taken as advice on what amount to place on a bet, you should only bet what you can afford to lose.

Leyton Orient have played 42 games this season, scoring 56 and conceding 41 with 17 games having both teams score and 15 over 2.5 goals. Orient are pretty low on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals, but Swindon games have been seeing goals this season, and it ended 4-1 to Orient when these sides met earlier in the season, so I’m hopeful of goals here.

Both teams to score- 4/5 Bet365 (3 points)

Over 2.5 goals – 1/1 Bet365 (3 points)

A goal in each half – 4/5 Skybet (3 points)
