Bet on Shrewsbury vs Bury – Unbeaten Shrews to take points

Punters should look no further than League Two for action as seven teams battle it out for the three automatic spots.

Shrewsbury Town’s Boxing Day game with Bury is a crucial tie in terms of automatic promotion as both teams vie for third spot while still harbouring ambitions of a title challenge.

Unbeaten at home, Shrewsbury look the pick at 11/8 to beat Bury although Alan Knill’s side drew at the Greenhous Meadow last season and a repeat of that 1-1 scoreline is 11/2, while a draw is priced at 12/5.

Bury have been in fine form this season and on the road they have picked up 22 points from a possible 30 and scored 24 goals in that period.

However they face a Shrews defence that has conceded just 7 goals at home and a 2-1 scoreline in favour of Shrewsbury is priced at 7/1.

Port Vale vs Lincoln City

Lincoln could be on the receiving end of a hiding as Port Vale look to keep up the pressure on league leaders Chesterfield.

Lincoln were thumped 4-0 at Vale Park last season and a repeat of that scoreline is priced at 22/1.

Lincoln have been woeful on the road this season winning just twice and scoring seven goals and a Port Vale clean sheet looks a certainty and they are priced at 8/15 to win.

However 10 home league goals is a poor return for the title contenders and under 2.5 goals is priced at 4/5.

Stockport County vs Rotherham

Rotherham have found a resurgence of form as of late and are serious title contenders.

Stockport should prove little threat to the Millers and Ronnie Moore’s side are 6/5 to beat Stockport, but the last three games between the two have produced 14 goals and over 2.5 goals is priced at 1/1.

A £10 treble on Shrewsbury, Port Vale and Rotherham winning would return £80.10. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
