Reason for Leyton Orient v Wycombe Bets

Leyton Orient manager Danny Ward recently said his side would come back “10 times stronger” were they to be relegated – seemingly attempting to consolidate his long-term position as manager, rather than rally his side for one final survival push. Yet, Orient seem to be a sinking ship.

Off-field financial matters are understandably impacting on the side. They’re in terrible form, losing seven of their last eight league matches and 13 of the last 16. They haven’t won a home game in 2017, taking zero points from a possible 21 and making Brisbane Road one of the sourest grounds in the EFL currently.

Their opponents on Saturday aren’t in the best of form either, however. Wycombe are still in the race for a play-off place, sitting just four points off seventh-placed Exeter, yet they’ve won just two of their last 11 fixtures.

Their away form has actually been improving of late though – they’ve won their last two and are unbeaten in three. One of those victories was a professional 2-0 win over Hartlepool – another side battling for their League Two lives. They’ll view the match against Orient as a fantastic opportunity to edge themselves closer to their play-off rivals.

Orient’s shocking current form and the growing disenchantment at the club, coupled with Wycombe’s on-going play-off push, means an away victory is highly likely. Back it to happen at 10/11 with William Hill.

Whilst the O’s have shipped 15 goals in their last four matches, Wycombe aren’t the most potent of attacking forces. They’re unlikely to get into the play-offs via goal difference, so the points will be what matter most to them. Back a low-scoring away win – Wycombe to win and under 2.5 goals can be found at 3/1 with Bet365.
