Preston, Barnsley, Notts County in sumptuous 6/1 JPT treble
The JPT (or Football League Trophy) gets underway for clubs in the bottom two tiers of English football this evening, and to celebrate Coral have a special boosted treble.
A sensational price of 6/1 on normal time home wins for League One trio Preston North End, Barnsley and Notts County can be yours if you bet now. Simon Grayson’s side take on relegated Shrewsbury Town, the Tykes tackle a derby against York City, while Shaun Derry’s Magpies face local rivals Mansfield Town.
Here’s why you should bet on this sumptuous special.
Preston v Shrewsbury
North End smashed the Shrews 5-2 back on Easter Monday to complete a league double last term, and that is why Grayson’s side are odds-on 4/6 favourites to beat the Shropshire outfit. Scottish winger Paul Gallagher hit a hat-trick in that encounter, and is 25/1 for a repeat performance, 7/1 for two goals or more, 5/1 to net last again and 11/8 in the anytime market.
Barnsley v York
The Tykes have never lost a cup derby with fellow Yorkshire side the Minstermen, and that is why they are odds-on at 17/20 for victory. Barnsley have striker Sam Winnall in their ranks, and he scored against York for Scunthorpe United in League Two last term. Odds of 5/4 say he will net again anytime.
Devante Cole, son of Andy, could also be unleashed on Nigel Worthington’s side, who are without a win this term, and the young forward wants to be ‘Outstanding’ just like his father. It’s 11/8 that ‘Cole the goal junior’ scores anytime.
Notts County v Mansfield
Derry’s Magpies are 23/20 favourites to beat the Stags because they are a division higher than their Nottinghamshire rivals. Liam Noble has two goals in his last three outings for County, so this fine form could continue here and he is 5/1 to add to those strikes anytime here.
