Our Betting tip on Tuesday night is found in League One, a division that continues to ebb and flow and is extremely competitive at the top and the bottom. Tuesday sees MK Dons host Shrewsbury, with the former looking solid promotion contenders before a very barren couple of months. Can they get back on track at Stadium MK?
Match: MK Dons v Shrewsbury
Betting Tip: Lay MK Dons
Best Odds: 1.8 with Betfair
Kick Off: 19:45 12/03/2013 (GMT)
The Dons did manage to halt their recent slump with a thumping 3-0 win at home to Doncaster the last time they played in front of their own fans. That win however, remains the only victory in the last ten League games, and the only win at the Stadium MK in the last six. A best price of 1.8 (4/5) looks too small for a team who are winning so infrequently. Shrewsbury head into this one on the back of three defeats, but those losses came against three in form teams and hide a steady improvement in the Shrews’ fortunes, particularly away. Their record on the road was woeful prior to Christmas, but the last eight away games have resulted in three wins and three draws, with just two defeats. Victories at Coventry and Tranmere illustrate the improvements they have made, with both of those teams sitting well above the Dons in the League One table. Based on both team’s early season form, odds on for a home win would make sense – current form however, makes that look short enough to merit a lay.
