Bradford City-Wycombe Wanderers Betting Preview: Visitors to heap more misery on the Bantams
The Carling Cup runners up are in action in a must win game, but Hugh Wilson believes the Chairboys will have the edge and has a 12/5 value betJust under a month ago, Bradford City were coming out at Wembley to play Swansea City for the first domestic trophy of the season. Before that match they had been on a woeful run of form, and since the final, it has not improved.
A run of two wins in 14 league matches has seen Phil Parkinson’s men slip away from the dizzy heights of League Two to a solid mid-table position.
They desperately need to find some form after the overwhelming Carling Cup run if they are to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. The Bantams are a short 19/20 (1.95) with Coral to win.
Wycombe on the other hand have battled away from the relegation zone after veteran Gareth Ainsworth took the helm back in November.
The Chairboys are underdogs for this clash, priced at 11/4 (3.75) with Coral to take maximum points. The same firm offers the draw at 5/2 (3.50).
The stand out bet in this fixture has to be which team will score first. Ainsworth’s men are priced at 13/8 (2.62) with Coral to find the net first.
Had you backed this in Wycombe’s last five matches, then four would have paid out. Add this to the fact that Bradford have only scored first in one of their last seven matches, these odds are too good to miss.
For those looking for more value, then one glance at the form guide of both sides would make it tough to ignore Wycombe’s price.
Winning five out of their last nine away games, including victories at league leaders Gillingham and Rotherham, the odds of 12/5 (3.40) Wycombe in the draw no bet market jumps out of the page. It’s also worth noting the home side are without a win at Valley Parade in their last five, so backing the Chairboys is certainly worth a smaller stake.
