Luton’s 11-game unbeaten run in League Two ended last weekend as Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s Burton Albion side moved back up to second with a gritty 1-0 win at the Pirelli Stadium.
Despite the defeat the Hatters dominated the game, enjoying greater possession and shots on goal but the hosts’ nicked it with Phil Edward’s second-half header and BetVictor eased John Still’s side to 8/13 (from ½) to be celebrating promotion come the end of the season.
There was better news elsewhere however with promotion-chasing Bury, Shrewsbury and Plymouth all tasting defeat and Luton remain one of four sides odds-on to be playing League One football next season; who looks set to miss out?
League Two Title prices from BetVictor are Shrewsbury 10/3, Luton 4/1 (from 10/3), Burton 4/1 (from 6s), Bury 6/1, Wycombe 9/1, Southend 10/1, Plymouth 14/1, 40/1 Bar.
Burton were double their 8/1 price for the title prior to back-to-back defeats of Wycombe and the Hatters respectively but were in a similarly position last term before the Brewers’ thread-bare squad caught up with them and they lost in the play-off final to Fleetwood.
The Hatters are now 4/1 to seal back-to-back titles but will likely shorten should they win, as predicted, when hosting Mansfield at the weekend.
With the Kenilworth Road faithful behind them BetVictor make Luton a shade of odds-on at 20/23, the Stags 18/5 and the draw 13/5.
The visitors struggled to get past non-league outfit Concord Rangers in their FA Cup first round replay midweek and although arrive seeking a third win on the spin, have struggled on their travels in League Two this term.
The Hatters are fancied to win the game to nil at 15/8 with BetVictor and the 2-0 correct score offering punters greater value still at 8/1.
