Bet of the Day: Charlton well-priced to win with Oldham shutout
Robinson’s men set to edge low-scoring affair
We’re four games into the League One campaign, and upwardly-mobile Charlton Athletic are sat nicely in the play-off spots. As for their next opponents Oldham Athletic, they’re yet to pick up a point. That means all the value is with the Addicks on Saturday.
Karl Robinson’s side have won three of their opening four league games, including victory at Rotherham United last weekend. As for their most recent game, that was also a comfortable win, away to Crawley Town in the Checkatrade Trophy.
With Oldham having lost every one of their six games in all competitions, failing to score in half of them, Coral’s Bet of the Day is Charlton to Win to Nil at 9/4.
Addicks well-priced to continue 2-0 streak
The Addicks’ last two games have each ended 2-0, with the East London club easing to victory at both Rotherham and Crawley. As for Oldham, they’ve lost by that scoreline on 11 occasions since the beginning of last season. That includes a pair of 2-0 losses at Boundary Park already this term.
As for previous meetings between the pair, the Addicks have a great record on their visits to this corner of Greater Manchester, conceding just once in their past four visits combined. That means Coral News like the look of Charlton to win 2-0 at 8/1.
History points to a low-scoring affair
One thing you don’t tend to get much of when Charlton meet Oldham is a goalfest. None of the past 13 meetings between these sides has produced more than two goals, dating back to 1994.
With Charlton looking very likely to take the points, and 37 of the Latics’ 46 league games last term producing two goals or fewer, Charlton to Win & Under 2.5 Goals looks like a very savvy selection at 3/1.
