It may be the international break but that doesn’t mean domestic football stops in England. We’ve got two games to look forward to in League One this weekend and we’ve put together a double for you to consider as the third tier partially returns.

League One Accumulator Tips:

  • Blackpool to beat Shrewsbury @ 4/7
  • Stevenage to beat Lincoln @ 4/5

Double pays 5/2

Blackpool to beat Shrewsbury @ 4/7

Blackpool have been impressive at Bloomfield Road this season, and boast the fifth-strongest home record in the division. They’ve won five out of nine on home soil so far, and only tasted defeat twice, against Derby and Peterborough respectively.

They seem to be able to dispose of the teams in the bottom half of the table relatively comfortably, and although the Tangerines haven’t won in their last three league games, they have won twice in cup games recently.

Neil Critchley is also facing a Shrewsbury Town outfit that currently sits 16th, and has the second-worst away record in the league. They won just one from eight on the road in the league and are likely to struggle once again here. The 4/7 on offer for the home team to win is short, but combining Blackpool to win in a double feels like a sensible move.

Stevenage to beat Lincoln @ 4/5

Steve Evans’ Stevenage have been the surprise package of League One so far, and are still occupying a play-off place, up in 5th. They have one of the smallest budgets in the division and only got promoted from League Two last term, so for them to be challenging for a double promotion is truly spectacular.

Stevenage haven’t lost in their last six games in all competitions, and five of those have been victories so there is substance behind their good results. As we progress towards Christmas, it is becoming increasingly clear that their good start could develop into another promotion-challenging season.

Evans prioritises hard work and set-pieces to get results, but suggesting that is all his side have to offer would be dismissive of their talents. Jamie Reid has been a goalscoring sensation and already has ten to his name this term, while Kane Hemmings is a fantastic strike partner.

Stevenage have a lot about them, and they face a Lincoln team that are pushing for the play-offs, but without a win in their last three matches. This will be a tight encounter, but I’m happy to back the home side again.
