MARK O’Haire (@MarkOHaire) takes a look at one of the big matches of the final day in League One.
Swindon Town v Leyton Orient | Sunday 12.15
OK how do we put this say this without offending the kids? HOW THE EFFING HELL ARE LEYTON ORIENT FAVOURITES TO WIN AWAY AT SWINDON!?
Swindon’s league position is finalised. Swindon are out of form. Leyton Orient have to win. Yeah, I’ve been through it all four, five, six times and still there’s absolutely no solid foundation to make me think these prices should be reversed.
The Robins will finish fourth and should already be preparing for the play-offs but why would they want to put in a poor performance in their final home game of the season? Mark Cooper will be wanting to ensure his side are prepped and ready but he’ll also be hoping to enter the end of season finale with a bit of momentum. Surely?
Swindon have W2-D2-L4 in their last eight and of course that’s a concern. But hang on a sec, this Orient side have collected just one more point over the same period as their hosts (W2-D3-L3). They’re winless in six and were dismembered on their last visit to one of League One’s highest flyers. The O’s are just 1/6 for relegation but 8/5 to win at the County Ground? Not for me, thanks.
I’ll gladly have a slice of Swindon at 9/5 thanks to BetVictor because the Robins are… well, they’re just better!
