7/1 Saturday Football Tips – Three League One Bets for Saturday 8th October

Barnsley betting tips

The Football League is always a popular betting event and with all the 3pm kick-offs popular o accumulator bets, we have been through the fixtures and picked three betting tips for a Saturday afternoon treble.

It was good to get back to normality last weekend with a full fixture list across the country and it’s pretty much non-stop now until the World Cup for clubs at all levels. The games are coming thick and fast with no midweek breaks before Qatar for the majority of the country and there’s plenty that can change in terms of league position by the middle of November. Last week’s treble was on track last weekend until the 80th minute when late goals changed games. On to this weekend’s football tips from the Football League matches….


Barnsley to win vs Exeter – 5/4

Backing against a team with a new manager didn’t work last weekend as Cardiff snatched a last-minute equaliser against Burnley, but here I am, backing against managerless Exeter. Matt Taylors move to Rotherham will be a huge blow for Exeter and I think their sub-standard performance last Saturday at home to Bristol Rovers is the start of them tailing off. Exeter have started the season well but I see that form crashing down in the coming weeks due to his departure.

Barnsley have won 4 of their last 5 and are finally showing signs of a promotion hopeful, after a slow-ish start. I think Barnsley are a huge price here to carry on that form and take all 3 points. Odds against at home here is value and im all over them as a bet of the day material.

Peterborough to win (-1 handicap) vs Burton – 13/10

Barring 1 blemish against Fleetwood, Peterborough’s home form reads 3-0, 4-0, 2-0 and 3-0 wins. 12 goals for and 0 goals against in 4 games is almost perfect and im always confident of backing them at home against anyone in L1. They are short enough in the win only market but im more than happy to bet on the -1 handicap and get those odds up to an attractive price. All 4 home wins have came in on a -1 bet and I think they make it 5 here.

Burton have picked up since the resignation of JFH and 2 wins in their last 4 shows some signs of improvement. They are, however, streets away from a Peterborough team hoping to get back into the top 6 on Saturday and I cant see anything but a comprehensive home win for the Posh.


Plymouth to win vs Accrington – 7/10

Even though Argyle are top and have a bit of daylight to 3rd, I still believe they are priced up as if they aren’t title contenders or in a false position. They aren’t as short as a Pompey/Ipswich/Sheffield Wednesday would be here and im loving that as it offers fantastic value.

Argyle are top for a reason and have played some fantastic football so far his season. They are a team who are 5 from 5 at home and in the process of doing so have beaten 2nd, 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th in the League 1 table. Quite an incredible stat. I see no issues what they would struggle or fail to win here at home to 9th place Accrington.

John Coleman’s side are no mugs and are on a 3 game winning streak themselves which has seen them jump into the top half of the division. I don’t expect Argyle to have things all their own way in this one and they will have to be at their best to win but I do believe it is something that will happen as its becoming a habit for Argyle to do this season.
