These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Burton to Win

Burton have claimed 63.6% of their points in home fixtures this term and Albion have a chance to impress at the Pirelli Stadium again on Saturday against poor travellers, Fleetwood. Burton have already beaten Fleetwood twice (in league and cup) this season, while Town have won only twice in 18 attempts on the road in 2021/22. Having suffered defeats in three of their last four away assignments in League One, The Cod Army can be opposed with confidence here.

Both Teams to Score

With just six and five clean sheets in 37 and 35 League One fixtures respectively this season, Burton and Fleetwood rank among the least defensively proficient sides in the division, and bettors should expect both to concede this weekend. Both teams to score has landed in 61% of Burton’s home and 67% of Fleetwood’s away contests over the course of the campaign, so stick to the same market on Saturday.

Over 2.5 Goals

Fleetwood’s results on their travels this season make for grim reading and only two clubs in League One have conceded more away goals than Stephen Crainey’s ailing side. Town shipped eight goals in their last three away fixtures alone and their inability to keep the door shut should lead to more trouble against a Burton outfit that be a dangerous attacking unit at home. With those factors aligned, we recommend backing over 2.5 goals to hit the net at the Pirelli Stadium.
