Villans can get their noses in front by the interval and keep them there

Aston Villa have won their last 12 Premier League games at Villa Park, so it’s little surprise to see them trading at a not-particularly-appetising 4/7 to beat Fulham.

Fortunately, the half time-full time market holds plenty of appeal in terms of boosting the odds about a win for Unai Emery’s men. They’ve been winning at half-time in four of their five home games this season and 16 of their last 24, dating back to the beginning of the 2022/23 campaign.

Fulham have been ahead at the break in just one of their 11 league games so far this term.

Relentless Trotters attractive price to tame the travelling Tangerines

Bolton Wanderers are an appealing wager at 21/20 to beat Blackpool at the Toughsheet Community Stadium having won eight of their last nine outings in all competitions.

The visitors have lost just two away league games this term, which accounts for the decent price available about Ian Evatt’s men. However, they’ve drawn their last three on the road and shipped three times to Fleetwood in their last divisional assignment away from Bloomfield Road.

Wanderers come into this clash on the back of three consecutive clean sheets – continued defensive discipline can prove the platform for three points against leaky opponents.

Lincoln capable of securing a Sincil Bank success against ailing Vale

Port Vale started the season well but began to lose their way in mid-September, tasting defeat in six of their last eight League One games and drawing the other two.

The Valiants’ struggles in front of goal are doubtless a big contributory factor – they’ve blanked in five of their last six games in the division.

Sincil Bank may not be a fortress – Lincoln have won three of their six home league games this season – but the Imps have proven they have what it takes to see off Vale there, having beaten Wycombe, Blackpool and Charlton by two goals or more on home turf this term.

Tip: Lincoln to beat Port Vale @ 6/5

Colchester generously priced for victory given Sutton’s dire road record

Odds-on singles are a rarity on news.betzone, but occasionally an exception is made and backing Colchester to stall Sutton’s two-game renaissance is just such an occasion.

The visitors registered back-to-back wins for the first time this season when following up a 2-1 win over Bradford with another victory at the expense of Fylde in the FA Cup last time out. However, both those successes came at Gander Green Lane.

Matt Gray’s side have lost all seven of their away league games this season and travel to Essex to face hosts that have won their last three games in the third tier, culminating in an impressive 3-1 win over Swindon at the Jobserve Stadium most recently.
