Rochdale and Orient both look good for home wins

| 07.02.2011

Home wins look the order of the day in the Tuesday night fixtures in League One as Rochdale and Leyton Orient both look good bets to triumph on their own patches.

Rochdale are unbeaten in six games at Spotland and look a great price in the League One betting at 4/5 to beat Bristol Rovers.

Bristol Rovers have lost their last four away games in the division, which includes a 6-1 thumping by fellow relegation candidates Walsall in the most recent.

Meanwhile, in these four games they have shipped 18 goals and scored just three.

Bristol Rovers, who are 7/2 to take the three points, have also won on just two of their last 12 visits to Rochdale in all competitions.

With the visitors struggling to keep things tight at the back, there is also a good chance that Rochdale will open the scoring.

Gary Jones is their top scorer with 12 league goals this season and this makes him overpriced at 7/1 to break the deadlock against Bristol Rovers.

Swindon are another team in poor away form, losing their last three games on their travels, and there is little chance of this run coming to an end at Leyton Orient.

Orient have gradually begun to climb the league table, as one defeat in 11 games has ensured they are three points clear of the relegation places.

It is 1/1 in the League One odds that Orient beat Swindon and this result would mean that the visitors would have gone eight games without a league victory.

Alex Revell has already scored twice against Swindon this season, in the reverse league fixture and in the Carling Cup, and he is 9/2 to be the game’s first goalscorer.

Swindon are 13/5 to land the spoils, with the draw priced at 5/2.

A £25 stake on Leyton Orient beating Swindon 2-0 would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
