Back The Lilywhites At 7/5

31 October 2014

League title sponsors Sky Bet have Preston North End as slight favourites against Rochdale on Saturday.

The Lilywhites make the short journey to Spotland for the League One clash involving two of the league’s most in-form sides.

North End have recorded seven wins on the bounce in the league and they are rightly the slight favourites at 7/5.

Similarly, Rochdale have tasted just one defeat in their last seven making them narrow outsiders at 15/8, and the draw is also fairly short at 21/10.

The Lilywhites can boast the joint best goal difference in the division and their top scorer, Joe Garner, is the favourite to open the scoring here.

Rochdale however have two players with seven goals already this term – Matt Done and Ian Henderson – and they are 3/1 each to score in a Dale win.

Both players netted in the club’s biggest win for 2014/15 when they beat Walsall 4-0 a few weeks ago – a repeat of that scoreline is 80/1 this week.

Top Tip: Preston to win at 7/5.
