Huddersfield Town v Rochdale: How the bookies see it

BEATING Hartlepool thrust Town right back into the automatic promotion mix and Stan James subsequently cut them to 11/10 to go up.

BEATING Hartlepool thrust Town right back into the automatic promotion mix and Stan James subsequently cut them to 11/10 to go up.

Bookies expect Town’s chances to improve further tomorrow, with William Hill quoting them just 4/7 to get the better of Rochdale, Ladbrokes’ 6/1 outsiders.

Blue Square offer 3/1 for the spoils to be shared, just as they were when the pair met at Spotland in August.

But the struggling visitors currently prop up the table, possess a poor away record and arrive on the back of a five-match winless streak, so it’s hard to see past Town, 14/5 (Boylesports) to prevail by a one-goal margin.

That was the case in midweek and Betfred chalk 6/1 against a 1-0 success for the second time in the space of a few days while Partybets post 10/3 against Grayson’s men again coming out on top after an even first half.

Nevertheless, given Dale’s league position, some might expect a more comfortable 2-0 victory, available at 13/2 courtesy of Paddy Power or alternatively, Skybet quote Town at 6/4 to win ‘to nil’ and Coral rate them 11/8 in the handicaps, where they will kick off a goal behind.

Alan Lee was the match winner against Hartlepool and bet365 make him 11/2 to open the scoring again.

Top scorer Jordan Rhodes, of course, remains favourite in that particular market, BetVictor rating him at 3/1 to net first.
