1pt Leeds to beat Mk Dons in League one, 5/2 Skybet or  (Saturday 20th December 3pm ko)

[ Blog comment 5/2 now gone .. you can get a shade under that price on Betfair betting Exchange ]

Leeds have endured a bad run of results lately with four defeats on the bounce in all competitions. Losing top goalscorer Jermaine Beckford to injury hasn’t helped, but I think Leeds still have a good enough squad to cope without him and should be back to winning ways sooner rather than later. Luciano Becchio has eleven goals in all competitions and is a real threat, whilst Fabien Delph in midfield is one of the brightest young prospects in the lower leagues. They have quality players throughout the squad and are more than capable of turning it around. Boss Gary McAllister is under pressure and so are his under performing players, that’s why playing away from a restless Elland road crowd tomorrow, will probably count as a positive. Mk Dons on the other hand, are in good form at the moment with four wins out of five. However, these wins have all come against  sides struggling in the wrong half of the table. Brighton, Hartlepool, Walsall and Hereford are all teams promotion hopefuls would hope to beat. The one decent side they played in this run was Scunthorpe, who beat them 2-0 at stadium MK. That was their fourth home defeat of the season and Leeds have every chance of making it five. The Dons are missing an important player of their own, as captain and November league one player of the month Dean Lewington, is out injured. Their squad is pretty much the same one that got promoted from league two last season and I think they are overachieving in third place. This one is a price call more than anything. A month ago you would not have got anywhere near 5/2 about a Leeds win. It is an overreaction to the two sides short term form trends and it makes it well worth backing Leeds to end their poor run tomorrow.

Minimum price to take – 2/1
