Oldham Preview – Can the Latics deny Exeter?

There hasn’t been a great deal of form from Oldham recently as they have failed to win any of their last six league games.

There was a draw in four of those for Oldham.

But if we focus in on their home form only, then they have gotten very little change out of recent home fixtures.

It is a D1 L3 record that Oldham have taken from their last four games at Boundary Park.

For Tuesday night’s clash with Exeter, Oldham are the 7/2 underdogs on home soil* (odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March).

It has been a poor return of just W4 D2 L12 for them at Boundary Park in the league during this campaign.

Strangely enough, all four for those home wins for Oldham happened against teams who are currently in the top half of the table.

From their eight home games against teams in the bottom half, the Latics have taken one point only.

Oldham have scored an average of 1.28 goals per home game, but have conceded at an average of 1.8 per game.

They have so far, only managed one home clean sheet in this entire campaign.

Earlier this season when they went to Exeter, Oldham did take a good three points from a 2-1 win.

Our betting prediction:

(odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March)

On home turf, Oldham have failed to win any of their last four games against Exeter however.

Three of the last four such fixtures have ended in a draw which is a quote of 13/5 in League Two betting* (odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March).

In just five of their eighteen home games, this season have Oldham opened the scoring.

Only once have they been leading at the half time break as well.

Summing it all up, Oldham currently boasts the worst home record in the division, and have the worst defensive record of all teams.

Strangely enough, in wild contrast to that, there are only two teams in League Two who have produced more goals this season than Oldham have done.


Exeter Preview – Can Exeter take the points from this away game?

After losing their last two league fixtures against Cheltenham and Tranmere, Exeter’s promotion push has stalled.

They need to make the most of their games in hand over those above them in the playoffs.

Can they take all the points from this game?

There is a quote of 5/6 on the away win happening at Boundary Park on Tuesday* (odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March).

The away record of Exeter this season is W5 D8 L4 and they have won two and lost two in their last four.

But what should put them on the radar for the points in this one is their away form against teams currently in the bottom half of the table.

While Exeter have not won away at any top half of the table team, they are W5 D3 from their eight away games against teams in the bottom half.

On the weekend they were away from home and lost at Tranmere who are currently four in the league.

There has been an average of 1.5 goals per away game for Exeter, better than in defence at an average of 1.35 per game.

Exeter have taken a clean sheet in 24% of their away games this season.

One big positive that they have on their side is that they are the top-scoring team in League Two by a fair distance this season.

But the rest of Exeter’s stats are fairly average in terms of away record and defensive output this season in the division.

Exeter have opened the scoring in 7 of their 17 away games this season, and have been leading at the break in six.

They have only been trailing at the break away from home in four matches.

So the half time draw does look like a decent football betting proposition for this game at 6/5* (odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March).

Of the two sides in play here, it is Exeter who needs the points more badly.

Will that be enough to inspire them to win?

Key Facts – Oldham vs Exeter Betting Tip

  • Oldham on at Exeter earlier this season
  • Oldham are winless in six league fixtures
  • Exeter are undefeated in their last four visits to Oldham


Oldham’s goalscoring output has been good, they can’t be faulted in that regarded.

But their defence is wide open and that has let them down time and time again, and it’s the reason why they are down in the bottom half.

There is probably enough there though to warrant supporting them getting on the scoresheet.

Exeter to win & BTTS is at 11/4* (odds recorded 23:44 GMT Monday, 22nd March).
