League One Saturday Treble: Leaders feature in 11/1 treble

There is a full programme scheduled in League One this Saturday and leaders Sheffield Wednesday feature in our treble from the division.

The Owls appear in near-unstoppable form at the moment after they extended their unbeaten league run to a club-record 20 games by seeing off Charlton Athletic last weekend and they will be hoping to add to that further with a victory against Peterborough United at Hillsborough.

Improving Portsmouth also feature in our treble, as they go in search of a fourth win in five when they visit struggling Cambridge United, while draw specialists Lincoln City could be involved in another stalemate with an Oxford United side playing their first match since parting ways with manager Karl Robinson.

In total our treble could land punters a potential return of almost 11/1.

Saturday treble:

Sheffield Wednesday to beat Peterborough United @ 4/5
Portsmouth to win at Cambridge United @ 23/20
Lincoln City v Oxford United - Draw @ 2/1

Odds were correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

Relentless Owls to continue promotion procession

OddsSheff Wed 4/5, Draw 11/4, Peterborough 3/1

Sheffield Wednesday missed out on an instant return to the Championship last season after losing in the play-offs, but they have seemingly been keen to make up for lost time ever since that setback.

Darren Moore's team currently sit three points clear at the top of the standings and with a game in hand on nearest rivals Plymouth Argyle.

The Owls have not lost a league fixture since defeat at Plymouth in early October, while they have also won nine of their last 10 matches in the third tier, including each of the previous six on home soil at Hillsborough.

All this makes for ominous reading for those of a Peterborough persuasion, although the Posh have collected seven points from their last three games to boost their faint hopes of making the play-offs, while they were 2-0 winners over Wednesday when the two teams met in the reverse fixture back in August.

That victory at the start of the season will give Darren Ferguson's side some hope, but this is a different Wednesday team to back then, one  who have not lost at home in any competition for over five months - they could be considered overpriced at 4/5 in the Full Time Result Market.

Pompey on the march under Mousinho

OddsCambridge Utd 9/4, Draw 12/5, Portsmouth 23/20

Portsmouth took a risk by handing John Mousinho his first senior managerial job when he replaced Danny Cowley in the Fratton Park hotseat in January, but the 36-year-old has quickly repaid that faith, losing just two of his nine matches in charge.

That sequence includes Pompey taking 10 points from their last four games, with the 4-0 victory over Cheltenham Town and the 3-1 success over promotion-chasing Bolton Wanderers catching the eye.

Next up for Mousinho and his side is a trip to struggling Cambridge, who have sleepwalked into the relegation zone following a run of one win in 11 matches.

The U's have lost eight of those games during that sequence, while they have also registered just two wins at the Abbey Stadium since the start of September. Form and momentum certainly appears to be with 23/20 Pompey.

Draws a familiar theme for Lincoln

WhatLincoln City v Oxford United
WhereLNER Stadium, Lincoln
When15:00, Saturday 4th March
OddsLincoln City 13/8, Draw 2/1, Oxford Utd 15/8

To say Lincoln are draw specialists may be an understatement, as the Imps have shared the spoils 17 times this season, which is three more than any other team in the EFL.

Nine of those stalemates have come across Lincoln's last 13 games in the third tier, while each of their last four fixtures have also finished all-square, including last weekend's 1-1 draw with MK Dons.

Remarkably, Lincoln are still unbeaten at home this season in the league, but 13 of their 16 games at the LNER Stadium have finished, you guessed it, level, with Saturday's home clash with Oxford likely to follow the same pattern - the draw is 2/1 in the Full Time Result market.

Oxford may be happy to take a point away from their trip to Lincolnshire, as the U's have lost seven of their last eight games - drawing the other away at MK Dons.

That run ultimately led to Robinson losing his job in the wake of last weekend's home defeat at the hands of Bristol Rovers.
