Contrary to what their positions in the table might suggest, both teams have been in fine form. The point is, the teams have had a resurgence in form following poor starts to the season.
The Dons were snatched off two points on the road as they had to settle for a draw against Wycombe as Joe Jacobson converted a penalty in the 96th minute.
In the 4 fixtures preceding that the club had registered two wins, one draw and a loss. Thus with eight points in five league fixtures, the club is 17th in the table, five points clear of relegation.
The Addicks were not able to get the better of 5th place Plymouth, as they lost 1-0 away from home. The club had won 4 matches before the fixture across all competitions.
However, in the league, their record in the last 5 games is 2 wins, 2 losses and a draw. Thus with 7 points from 5 league matches the club is 12th in League One.
Red Robins are winless in three away fixtures. Concerningly two of those fixtures came against sides in the 4th quarter of the league table. With such form gaining more than a point against a side undefeated in five fixtures would be a surprise.
The Wombles have scored ten goals in their last four home fixtures. While their opponents have not scored in their last two away games. However, preceding that they have not failed to score since March. Considering these observations I have backed the BTTS wager.
