Luton have taken to life in the Football League with ease, losing points through concentration rather than being out-played and out-thought by the opposition manager.
The Hatters were turned over 1-0 by AFC Wimbledon at the weekend but were able to rescue a point late on against promotion favourites Bury; a brace of tough matches out of the way at Kenilworth Road.
John Still’s side were eased to 10/1 with BetVictor for the title with Portsmouth and Shrewsbury clipped after wins midweek; Pompey the new 5/1 favourites to be League Two champions after victories over Cambridge and Northampton respectively.
League Two Outright prices from BetVictor: Portsmouth 5/1; Shrewsbury 7/1; Burton 7/1; Bury 9/1; Luton 10/1; 16/1 Bar.
A top seven finish remains odds-on and the Hatters are 4/5 to reach at least the play-offs whilst the prospect of League One football next term is 7/4 with BetVictor; Portsmouth the 11/10 favourites having made an excellent start under Andy Awford at Fratton Park.
An away day at Accrington Stanley will make greater appeal than last year’s trips to Hyde, Welling and Southport as Luton look an excellent price at 6/4 to leave the Crown Ground with all three points; Stanley 19/10 and the draw 12/5.
Accrington have lost all three games in League Two this season, a 4-0 hiding at Shrewsbury and look a side in complete disarray.
The Hatters are taken to win and win well with the double result appealing at 3/1 to win the game half-time/full time and 3/1 with BetVictor to win the game to nil.
Pell Ruddock Mpanzu came off the bench to nick the Hatters a point against the Shakers but he looks set to miss out on a starting spot once more, with Paul Benson and Mark Cullen taken to fire the Hatters to victory.
Both strikers are the 6/1 joint-favourites to open the scoring and 2/1 to net anytime with Benson fancied to break his duck in style, seeing his 66/1 price to be the league’s leading scorer tumble in the process.
