League One betting, Sheff Utd - Colchester

Sheff Utd are second and still remain as top promotion contenders, but at Tuesday got a smack in the mouth from Hudders (not defeated in 34?!). Now they need to bounce back immediately, or will start to lose confidence, maybe even fans’ support. Midfielder Montgomery will miss again. He brings the strength, without him they have win, draw and a defeat of last 3.

Colchester are typical mid-table side who, actually like to play against league top teams. They went to Preston at the opening day and won 4-2 (yeah, I was on Preston), stayed undefeated at Scunny and Brentford and lost 2-3 at Hudders. They scored in nine of ten games this season and conceded in every, have three 1-1 draws in a row (cannot play it forever) and I thing they were lucky in several occasions.

The Blades are certain favourites, but I think Colchester won’t have any respect, they can score (once, at least) and make this game very interesting. I am going on goals, instead home win. (With over 2.75 you need four goals, with three - half win.)

Bet: Over 2.75
Odd: 2.05 (188bet)
Stake: 7/10
