It‘s something of a surprise to see the Pirates chalked up at generous odds this weekend. After all, Paul Trollope‘s team have had a strong start to the season, sitting in fifth place despite having played a game less than most of the other sides in the division. In addition, Rovers have only played five of their twelve matches at the Memorial Stadium, winning on three occasions including victories against Millwall and Huddersfield. They should have enough in the tank to beat Yeovil, with a home match finally arriving after nearly a month on the road.
Yeovil are situated in mid-table after a modest start to the campaign, although they have yet to win an away match in League One this season, so the away victory is rendered as an unlikely outcome. They have drawn three of their six matches on the road, drawing 0-0 at Millwall and Oldham most recently. However, this safety-first approach can only take them so far and it‘s at home that Terry Skiverton‘s team will stay afloat this season. Best odds for the Bristol Rovers win is 1.83 at Paddy Power.
