REASONS FOR SWINDON TOWN VS PETERBOROUGH UNITED BETTING TIPS

Swindon Town face Peterborough United in League One action at the County Ground on Saturday afternoon with both teams needing the points to help their respective causes.

The Robins claimed an excellent 2-1 win away to high-flying Bolton Wanderers last weekend to end a seven-match winless streak in all competitions, but Luke Williams’ team is still only four points above the relegation zone.

It’s worth noting that the Robins team that beat Bolton included three young debutants on loan from Chelsea in defender Fankaty Dabo, midfielder Charlie Colkett and striker Islam Feruz, whilst their equalizer was scored by another new loanee, their former midfielder Ben Gladwin who has just returned from Queens Park Rangers.

Peterborough are themselves without a win in five games in all competitions following last Saturday’s 5-1 drubbing away to Bury and have now slipped to five points off the play-off places.

Swindon’s home form is nothing special, having lost five league games at the County Ground already this season, but they’ve become much harder to beat there of late, going five undefeated in front of their own fans. Matches at the County Ground have also generally been low-scoring this season, averaging exactly 2.00 goals per game across 13 matches.

The new-look Swindon team showed what they were capable of last weekend and that gives them some appeal here. Despìte being at home, the Robins are the outsiders and can be backed at 23/10 with Betfair to win. The Draw is on offer at 11/4 (also with Betfair) and Peterborough are a best price of 5/4 with bet365.

Backing Swindon +0.25 on the Asian Handicap looks a decent option at 19/20 with Betfred. With that bet, even were the match to finish as a draw, you would get half your stake matched at the winning odds and the other half refunded to your account.

There have been Over 2.5 Goals in just 38% of Swindon’s home games this season and in just 33% of Posh’s away matches. It makes the 23/20 available with Betfair on Under 2.5 Goals look a big tempting price.

For a Swindon v Peterborough Correct Score tip, a 1-1 draw looks a possible outcome at 13/2 with William Hill.

In the Anytime Goalscorer market, Feruz might be worth a punt at 11/4 with Betway. Tom Nichols is 9/5 with Betfair, which also looks decent for a player who has 10 goals in all competitions this season.


SWINDON TOWN VS PETERBOROUGH UNITED STATS

Swindon are only averaging 1.08 goals per game (GPG) at the County Ground this season, whilst conceding at a rate of 0.92 GPG. Peterborough’s away goal count stands at 1.25 GPG, whilst conceding at a rate of 1.33 GPG.

Both Teams To Score (BTTS) has occurred in 38% of Swindon’s home League One matches this season and in 58% of Peterborough’s away games.


SWINDON TOWN TEAM NEWS

PETERBOROUGH UNITED TEAM NEWS

New loanee defender Dominic Ball could be available for the first time after a back injury, but Jermaine Anderson and Jack Baldwin both remain sidelined.
