Movers & Shakers

25 November 2013

Who are the bookies favourites?

Sky Bet League One leaders Leyton Orient were the only side in the top five to claim a win this weekend as they leapfrogged title favourites Wolves into top spot.

Orient have come in from 5/1 to 4/1 to finish top of the pile, but Wolves remain the hot favourites at 8/13, despite their goalless draw with Brentford.

Third favourites Peterborough continue to drift as they endured a fourth successive defeat - they’re out to 8/1 having been 7/2 at the start of the month.

Indeed, Bradford were the only top-six team other than Orient to claim a win as they snatched a 3-2 win at MK Dons, their first league win in seven games.

The Bantams came in from 8/1 to 7/1 for promotion as a result with their chances of a top-six finish now rated quite well at 9/4, the same price as Coventry.

The Sky Blues were 2/1 to finish in the promotion places before they suffered a shock 5-1 defeat to Tranmere, who defied odds of 250/1 in Sky Bet’s correct score market.

In general, the bottom half of the League 1 table had the better of the results, with five teams in the lower half registering a win, compared to just three in the top 12.

Ninth-placed Port Vale joined Orient and Bradford in claiming three points as they won 2-1 at Crewe, their fifth win in their last six games, seeing them shorten from 9/1 to 6/1 for a top-six finish.

Meanwhile, four players – Callum Wilson (9/2), Leon Clarke (11/2), Nahki Wells (11/2) and David Mooney (10/1) – are deadlocked on 12 goals, but 10-goal Leigh Griffiths remains Sky Bet’s 7/2 favourite to top the charts come May.

Odds are subject to change
