Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been huge advocates of backing League Two dominators Chesterfield at huge prices, and while we opposed them for their one loss against Crewe a fortnight ago, now’s the time to get back on the wagon.

Chesterfield are an incredible 1/1 to beat second from bottom Barnet (11/4) at Barnet’s Underhill Stadium on Saturday, and if you are to compare this price to Premier League leaders Manchester United who are 4/6 to beat West Ham in nine days time, Chesterfield are ridiculously good value.

Barnet may have won this fixture 3-1 last season, but there’s no stopping Chesterfield as they power their way to the Championship and having won two of the last three ties at Underhill, they should be odds-on to do so again.

Port Vale vs Bury

This is arguably the biggest clash of the weekend and neither team can be separated in the betting with both sides available at 13/8 to win.

Bury come into this game on the back of two home defeats while Port Vale have picked up two points from a possible 12, and with both sides struggling, the draw looks the best option at 23/10.

Port Vale’s poor form has seen them fall out of the play-off zone while Bury, who despite a winless three games remain in second and it could be that Bury just have the edge.

However four of the last eight games between the two have finished 1-1 and backing the same result on Saturday at 11/2 would return £130 from a £20 stake.

Friday night fixtures

Friday night’s League Two betting action sees Lincoln host Rotherham in a game both sides are 13/8 to win, and Torquay, League Two’s form side, are 17/10 to beat Northampton and apply the pressure to the teams in the automatic promotion spots.

A £20 double on Chesterfield and Torquay winning would return £108. New customers can sign up here to get up to £60 in free bets.
