Oxford vs Mansfield by DrVonKlaps
It is the 3rd of the table vs the 5th and I believe that the odds are not accurate.
No one doubts that Oxford are the favorites with so far outstanding performance: 14-9-4 overall and 6-5-2 at home.
Recent form is not bad (last six: 3-1-2, last four at home: 1-2-1), but not perfect. Last match (Saturday 6 Feb) vs Exeter was postponed due to weather conditions. They had more days to rest.
Now let 's see the odds: Oxford (1,60) vs Mansfield (6,50).
So according to the odds we expect to see a guest team with rather miserable stats.
Lets have a look: Mansfield are currently on position 5. So far 13-8-9 and away: 8-2-4. Ooops!
What about recent form: they run a 3 matches winning streak. Last six 4-0-2 and last four away 2-1-1. Wow!
They played last Saturday. They won against Morecambe 2-1. Lucky? Goalkeeper Shearer saved 2 penalty shots. Good to have a fine goalkeeper in a team you going to bet for! Isnt it? And it is also good to have top scoring striker of the team Matt Green back after serving a one-match suspension.
And why these odds? We always have to ask. Where is the trap?
Probably the more days of rest for Oxford is one factor. And probably the recent encounters of the teams, with Oxford as the host: all in favor of Oxford.
I dont bet using data of 2009, or even of 2015. With the today's data, in my opinion, odds are wrong. Away win should be around 4,50 and not 6,50.
In this price, (4,50), I have away win plus draw no bet and there i will put my stake. For these odds I 'm willing to take the risk.
