There aren’t many leagues with more to play for in all areas of the league table than in League One right now. Except Forest Green in 24th, I think there are seven teams fighting to avoid a place in League Two next season. At the top? Very close as well. Here are my betting tips for League One round 37.

Looking For A 0-0
Ipswich Town – Shrewsbury Town

I try to not preview my dear Ipswich Town every week, but I feel like this is a game where I have a lot to say. Ipswich Town are a very, very strong side in League One. They are dynamic in attack, colossally solid at the back, and play with a lot of colour and creativity. I think they have the best top level in the division, although Sheffield Wednesday have undoubtedly been the most consistent performers. Town have now won six games to nil in a row, which is outstanding. I think they will finish ahead of Plymouth and secure that 2nd place to take them into the Championship next year.

Steve Cotterill and Shrewsbury Town are one of the most reliable defensive teams in the English Football League in my eyes. They defend extremely narrow and have some robust and physical centre halves who are very strong in the air. If Ipswich are to win this game, I think they’ll have to be very patient and loyal to their approach. For that reason I think corners are the logical bet, but unfortunately we don’t get any team corner odds with Unibet right now. That might change closer to kick-off. I think Cotterill will look to “win” this game 0-0, so 1.70 for Shrewsbury not to score sounds like a decent pick. I’m combining this with under 3.5 goals, where we get 2.00. A good bet for this game to be tight for a long time. I just can’t see a high scoring affair.

A Successful Recipe
Cheltenham Town – Exeter City

For some reason I think that I’ve written more about Cheltenham Town than I should, but the reason is very simple: they have only played one home game in which we’ve seen more than 10.5 corners, which is a significant stat. Exeter have been a decent corner team this season, but the match climate is unique on Cheltenham’s tight and narrow pitch. I’m going with the same bet again, and can’t wait to see how long it will continue before the statistical outlier comes to an end.
