A LATE collapse at Victoria Park broke Huddersfield hearts in midweek as the Terriers conceded three times in the last seven minutes to go down 5-3 against Hartlepool.
It was the second time in the space of a few days that Town had taken the lead and failed to land all three points after the 1-1 draw with Bristol Rovers.
And that stalemate, allied with the two Peterborough have recorded back-to-back in the last week, means Betdaq can expect healthy trade around the 13/5 they offer for the spoils to be shared.
And Canbet’s 6/1 for a 1-1 scoreline could also be well backed as Huddersfield hit London Road.
The well-fancied hosts however, are VCBet’s 9/10 odds-on favourites for the points, having gone eight matches without defeat, so Town, who are Coral’s 10/3 outsiders, will have to be at the top of their game to glean anything from their tricky-looking trip, let alone snare a maximum haul.
For confident Terriers fans believing the latter is a distinct possibility, some large prices are available for outcomes relating to an away win, primarily because Stan Ternent’s men come into the clash as underdogs.
A 2-1 Town success for example, is on offer at 14/1 with Betfred, Huddersfield are a chunky 11/1 (Sportingbet) to fashion the game’s only goal and Blue Square mark a massive 8/1 against the Terriers coming out on top despite having gone in on level terms at half-time.
Elsewhere, the cautious can back Town at 4/5 (Betdirect) to acquire any result other than a defeat in a fixture Jaxx.com quote at 7/10 to produce three or more goals.
Partybets, meanwhile, post odds of 9/2 against a winning margin of one goal in favour of Ternent’s charges, the same firm make Huddersfield 8/15 just to get on the scoresheet and the first successful strike is 15/2 with bet365 to come from Town’s in-form loan striker Liam Dickinson, who has bagged four goals in his last four games.
