Huddersfield are well positioned to make a second Wembley playoff final in as many years, carrying a 2-0 advantage into Tuesday’s tie with MK Dons, at 11/10 to win again.
The home side are unbeaten in their last eight matches against Karl Robinson’s Dons, and will be buoyed by their 2-0 triumph at Stadium: MK on Saturday.
Travelling Dons are 23/10 to end their Huddersfield hoodoo meanwhile, and claim the victory they need to have any chance of making the Wembley final.
It is 5/2 about the draw alternatively, which was the result on both occasions the teams met in the regular League One season this term.
Punters should note that Saturday’s encounter represented the first of the sides’ last five meetings which failed to produce goals for both, so 8/11 odds about each of them registering at the Galpharm Stadium look appealing.
A more attractive bet could be for Huddersfield to win a game in which both teams find the net, which is a 10/3 chance, though some could opt to follow recent form and back Town to win 2-0 for the third game in succession.
That scoreline will see support at 10/1, whilst punters could also choose to back the Terriers to overcome a one goal handicap at a tempting 3/1.
Of their past three victories over MK Dons, each has come by a margin greater than one goal, so such a bet would have paid dividends in several of the sides’ recent meetings.
An obvious choice will dominate the first scorer betting on this match, as Jordan Rhodes lines up for Town aiming to smash the 40 goal barrier in all competitions.
Rhodes is the country’s leading scorer, and after hitting the opener in the first leg of this playoff semi-final, he is an attractive 7/2 shot to break the deadlock on Tuesday night too.
