MK Dons vs Burton Albion prediction, betting odds, and free tips 03/12/2022

This is going to be a true survival battle between two desperate English One teams. Neither one of them would want to spend the 2023/24 season in a lower division so the two managers would probably park the bus and rely on counterattacking football.

MK Dons vs Burton Albion predictions and betting tips

The history between these two teams isn’t that old. The first game between them was only a couple of years ago. That’s exactly why we prefer to rely on the home team for Saturday’s game.

MK Dons to win

Yes, Burton Albion won the first two editions of this clash but the remaining ones went under MK Dons control. That’s why in the last five games between the two opponents we saw four victories for MK Dons and one draw. MK Dons are slightly higher up the ranking than Burton and the home team has a game yet to be played. Furthermore, the home-field advantage always is a nice weapon to have in these league games.

MK Dons will win with a 1:0 result

For all of you who are feeling particularly lucky, the 1:0 victory for MK Dons is the most expected outcome of this clash. Three of the seven games in the past ended with that result. We expect to see more of the same from the Dons as they are the superior team. We expect to see a solid defensive performance by the home side in this game.

Under 2.5 goals

However, both of them are on a hunt for points, and dropping any isn’t on the table. That’s why we believe the game will be a dull affair with very few goals. We expect MK Dons to stun Burton Albion with a goal in the first half and the rest of the game will be a snooze fest. The head-to-head data certainly supports our claim as four of the last seven games between the two teams ended with under 2.5 goals.

MK Dons vs Burton Albion: team form, match previews, and facts

Don’t rush your bet before seeing how the two teams are doing in the English League One.

MK Dons

The Dons have been performing worse than last year but still better than Burton Albion. The home team is in 21st place with 14 points accumulated through 18 games so far. MK Dons are among the teams with the lowest number of draws – only two. It’s all or nothing for coach Liam Manning’s players and we’re convinced that they have what it takes to get a comfortable result against Burton Albion.

Burton Albion

Burton Albion have Victor Adeboyejo to thank for preserving their chances for survival this year as the 24-year-old striker has been performing at his lethal best so far. He’s among the top scorers in the league and the eight goals next to his name in the goal-scorers chart prove that. Burton Albion are getting dangerously close to the bottom of the table and the only thing saving them from this humiliation, is the decent goal difference.
