Visitors’ brilliant form makes bookies faith in ailing Chelsea baffling

Borussia Dortmund have won all 10 games they’ve contested since returning to action following the World Cup in Qatar, including the 1-0 first leg victory over the Blues which gives them the edge coming into this tie.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are 17/20 for a home win despite having prevailed in just four of their last 17 games in all competitions across a wretched run stretching back to the start of November.

Graham Potter’s men will be compelled to attack, yet ultimately lack the cutting edge required to make unpicking Die Schwarzgelben an inevitability. The Blues have scored just twice in their last seven outings.

The 10/11 about the Dortmund double chance is the play for pragmatists or acca backers here, but for those in the market for value singles the 3/1 about an away win has serious appeal.

Our pick: Borussia Dortmund to beat Chelsea @ 3/1

County to be sacrificial Rams to Pilgrims’ astonishing home record

The Home Park faithful have certainly had their money’s worth this season, with Plymouth winning 15 of their 17 games in League One.

Steven Schumacher’s outfit eased past visiting Charlton on Saturday to keep up that relentless record and look excellent value to get the better of Derby on Wednesday.

County have lost their last two away games prior to this encounter, giving up seven goals across defeats to Wycombe (3-2) and Barnsley (4-1).

Our pick: Plymouth to beat Derby @ 8/5

Gills certainties to outrun dismissive odds at Edgley Park

The Gillingham renaissance continues apace. The Kent club that seemed nailed on for relegation before Christmas are now on a run of six wins, two draws and two losses in their last 10 games.

Stockport’s record from their last 10 outings? Identical. Won six, drawn two, lost two. Yet Dave Challinor’s men are 8/13 for three points here, whereas the visitors are 17/4.

County currently sit fifth in League Two but they’ve failed to win eight of their 17 home games this season and have been held to 0-0 draws by Bradford and Doncaster inside their last five Edgley Park assignments.

That’s encouragement enough to back Neil Harris’ resurgent visitors to avoid defeat, just as they have done in four of their last five on the road.

Our pick: Gillingham (+1) to beat Stockport @ 13/10
