Our prediction for this League 1 match:
MK Dons and Cheltenham Town square off against each other in the League One round 25 in what is expected to be a close match. MK Dons quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Oxford United, with the team beating Lincoln on the road, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to book their place in the playoffs.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Scott Twine, who scored a brace in the last league match. The Robins, on the other hand, aim to make amends for back-to-back losses to Shrewsbury and Plymouth. Considering that Cheltenham have been struggling at the back of late, we believe that punters from all around the globe can find value in betting on the home side.
