Bournemouth have avoided defeat in their last six away games against Rochdale and this is a good omen for Lee Bradbury as he prepares to take charge of his first game as temporary boss of the club.
The League One betting odds have Bournemouth at 9/5 to beat Rochdale, but to do so they will have to improve their disappointing away record this season.
Bournemouth have won just two of their 12 fixtures on the road, which means that a Rochdale team that have scored in eight successive games may represent better betting value at 7/5.
The last three meetings between the pair at Spotlands have ended in draws and this outcome can be backed at 12/5 to be the result again.
If Bournemouth lose, MK Dons could move level on points with them in the League One play-off places with a home victory over Plymouth.
With the MK Dons having the best home record in the whole division with nine wins from 12 games, they look a good bet at 4/5 to beat Plymouth in what will be the first ever meeting between the two clubs.
Plymouth are also on a three-game losing streak, meaning that taking the 6/1 on the MK Dons winning 2-0 for the fourth home game in a row could prove prudent.
The other League One game taking place sees Bristol Rovers looking towards moving out of the relegation places with a home win over Hartlepool.
Bristol Rovers are 6/4 to complete a hat-trick of successive victories over Hartlepool at the Memorial Stadium, while they are unbeaten in the last six games in total between the two.
Meanwhile, Hartlepool are 17/10 to claim victory and extend Bristol Rovers’ winless sequence to 12 games.
