Sky Bet Betting Preview - Oldham Athletic v Crewe Alexandra

23 December 2014

Oldham are Football League sponsor Sky Bet’s strongly-supported 8/13 favourites for victory when Crewe visit on Boxing Day.

The Railwaymen are League 1’s biggest outsiders of the day at 9/2 but are sure to tempt a few punters fancying an outsider, having defied expectations as they beat leaders and promotion favourites Bristol City on Saturday. 

Their hosts will be desperate to make amends after being thumped 4-0 and 7-0 in their last two league fixtures, results which have seen them drift to 11/1 for promotion despite being just a point off the play-off places as things stand. 

Jonathan Forte heads the first goalscorer betting at 4/1, while Marcus Haber is considered the visitors’ biggest threat at 7/1 in the same market.

Top Tip: Over 3.5 goals at 2/1
