We review the best of the odds ahead of the first day at Cheltenham and Pools' trip to Cambridge United.
.Sky BetThe bookies have installed Cambridge United as big 4/6 favourites for the three points on Tuesday night, with Pools out at a massive 4/1 and the draw priced at 14/5 with our friends at
Of course, Dave Jones’ men have to end their away day hoodoo at some stage – and if you fancy that could be tonight then why not try and sting the bookies at the same time?
Pools picked up a point at The Abbey Stadium last season but were unlucky not to get all three as the hosts equalised late on – if you want to back a 1-0 win it’s up for grabs at 12/1, while a 1-1 draw is good value at 11/2.
With Sky Bet not fancying Pools’ chances, it could be worth having a look at the odds on other winning scores – 2-1 is out at 14/1, while you can get a mighty 28/1 on a 2-0 triumph.
Padraig Amond is rated 6/1 for the evening’s first goal, Nathan Thomas looks tempting at 17/2 to notch first and in-form Lewis Alessandra is one to watch at odds of 9/1 to open the scoring.
Nathan Thomas to score first and Pools to win 2-1: 80/1
Meanwhile, the Cheltenham Festival is ready to go and we’ve picked out a few Pools-style tips for you to get your teeth in to…
Magnay Cartor (150/1 in the 1.30pm)
Ok, it’s not quite Magnay – but it’s close enough. And the odds are pretty eye-catching!
Forest Bihan (20/1 in the 2.10)
Ok, it’s not quite Behan – but, well, you know the rest!
Rons Dream (50/1 in the 4.10)
A touch of Ronnie Moore magic could help us claim a reward from the 4.10.
