Movers & Shakers

2 December 2013

Who are the bookies favourites this week?

Peterborough stopped the rot by ending their five-game losing streak with a win over Sky Bet League 1 title favourites Wolves. 

The win saw Posh come in to 10/1 from 11/1 to win the title as they reduced the gap between themselves and the leaders to eight points, though they were 13/8 at their shortest some six weeks ago. 

They’re still very much in the promotion mix at 15/8 while their beaten opponents Wolves remain odds-on to win the title at 4/7, having been 8/15 before only their second loss of the league campaign.

Leyton Orient remain top on goal difference but their title odds are on the drift after a second successive draw, lengthening marginally from 9/2 to 5/1.

They remain odds-on for promotion though, despite shifting from 8/11 to 4/5, while they’re heavily fancied to maintain the push all season at 1/20 to finish in the top six, having started the season 4/1.

Meanwhile, Rotherham continued to impress as they thumped Gillingham 4-1, their second win via a three-goal margin in the space of four days.

They’re now unbeaten in five and occupy sixth place but remain a decent price for promotion at 7/1.
