LANGUISHING in the bottom two, Huddersfield head to Millwall tomorrow still seeking their first League I win of the campaign.
But given that the Lions have also made something of an inauspicious start, Town will fancy their chances of accruing three points in South London.
Bookmakers however, are not quite as confident of a success, Betdaq pricing Stan Ternent’s men at 2/1 to land three points and Canbet marking 5/4 against a home win.
Nevertheless, the fact that both sides have already recorded two draws in three games means some travelling supporters may fancy Huddersfield to upset the odds to an extent by at least nicking a draw (9/4, VCBet) with punters also likely to be potentially attracted to both Betfred’s 4/1 for the match to be all square at the end of each half as well as Coral’s 11/2 chalked against the pair netting once each.
Having watched their side give a good account of themselves in their unfortunate defeat to Sheffield United on Wednesday, one or two Town fans may even believe their side can snare all three points rather than just the one.
For them, a better-value wager in the correct-score betting would seem to be Betdirect’s 10/1 for Town to shade it 2-1.
Elsewhere, Sportingbet offer 11/2 for the contest to be all-square at the interval only for Ternent’s troops to plunder a post-break maximum haul, Jaxx.com believe Huddersfield to be worth a generous quote of 9/20 to steer clear of defeat and Blue Square rate an away win by a one-goal margin at 4/1.
Meanwhile, where goals are concerned, Danny Cadamarteri is 8/1 (bet365) to grab his first of the season by opening the scoring at the New Den and Partybets mark 2/5 against Town finding the net; the online firm also making the visiting defence 9/5 to obtain a clean sheet at the other end.
