Oxford United travel to Wimbledon in great form and hope to take a leap towards the top 6 over their mid-table rivals who’ve been struggling to win recently.
Our primary betting recommendation for this match is Draw at 12/5 with BetVictor
AFC Wimbledon will host Oxford on Saturday hoping they can finally return to the winning ways in front of the home crowd and lock the points at Cherry Red Records Fans’ stadium. The Dons have earned just two draws and suffered two losses in their last four outings and we don’t feel they’ll have what it takes to see off the U’s.
Oxford have been in a great spell of form recently and lost just once (0-1 against Northampton) in their last 13 matches, winning eight and drawing four matches since mid-November! They come into the match with three consecutive wins behind them, having started the year with success in theleague (0-1 at Gillingham), FA Cup (2-3 at Rotherham), and EFL Trophy (4-1 over Scunthorpe! Travelling on a difficult away day we’ll back them to now snatch a point at 12/5 with BetVictor
The teams have last met in October 2016 and Wimbledon earned a confident win at the Kassam Stadium (1-3), but it does seem Oxford are a changed team. The U’s haven’t lost a match at Wimbledon in recent history, having earned five wins and one draw in their last six matches played there which definitely reiterates their chances on the day.
The Dons have been rather good at home this term, though, and they’ll be far from outsiders here. They’ve suffered just two losses in their last ten matches at Cherry Red Records Fans’ stadium, recording five wins and three draws in the process! A Yes on Both teams to score looks promising at 3/4 with William Hill
, as we’ve seen Wimbledon in fine attacking form in front of the home crowd and the U’s have eight goals in their last four away matches themselves!
With many attackers dropping out of form, a lot will depend on Oxford’s Kane Hemmings now as he’s played a key role up front recently with four goals in his last two appearances. It seems the 25-year old could be finally finding his best form since joining from Dundee so backing Hemmings to score anytime at 5/2 with Ladbrokes
could be the best way to approach the goalscoring market on the day!
