Betting Tip: Yeovil v Coventry

Yeovil are hovering just above the drop zone in the League Two, albeit in the early stages of the season of course, but they will want to at least dig in there for a point in this one. This won’t be an easy home game for them. Coventry started the season in style with back to back wins but the wind was knocked out of their sails with a defeat last weekend on home soil against Newport. Yeovil will have to be a bit wary of a Coventry backlash here as the visitors will look to get back to winning ways. Coventry are favourites at bet365 to win this at a price of 19/20 with home side Yeovil a big old 3/1 option.

Yeovil Form

Yeovil have had their struggles this season with a W1 D2 record but the positive there is that their lone win did come on home soil. It was against Accrington as well which was a fantastic result for them. There have been a tremendous amount of goals in games involving Yeovil this season. Their three games have produced a staggering 22 goals so far. They had that 8-2 loss against Luton, a 4-3 defeat against Forest Green and a 3-2 win over Accrington. The positive for Yeovil to take from that is that they are scoring well enough. Defensively, the aren’t there though.

Coventry Form

The Sky Blues will be cursing their slip at home against Newport last weekend. They had opened the season with back to back clean sheet victories over Notts County and Grimsby and would have liked to have kept that going. So this will be a little test of their resolve early on to see whether or not they can get back to winning ways. How awful the defence of Yeovil has been this season is likely to give them plenty of hope.

Top Betting Tips

Even though Coventry have struggled in their previous games against the Glovers, it is hard to see that happening this time around. Coventry banked a win in their only away game so far and should be more than good enough to get one at Huish Park. Given the way that Yeovil’s games have gone, Coventry to win & over 2.5 goals has to be some value.
