Football League sponsors Sky Bet have installed Rochdale as favourites to beat their hosts Peterborough United in the League One clash today.

Posh v Rochdale - Sky Bet EFL L1

Peterborough United v Rochdale
Location: ABAX Stadium
Date: Saturday, 14th April, 2018
Kick-off: 15:00pm

Rochdale may be in the bottom four in League One with Posh chasing a play-off place, but the recent form of both sides, according to the bookies, sees the struggling Lancashire side as favourites to win this match and do the double over Posh!

The fact is both sides have won four of their last ten matches while losing just two games! The difference being Posh have only won one of their last five matches, losing two games while Dale have won two, drawn two and lost just one in those last five matches. That sole defeat for the Dale came in their last match at home to Wigan Athletic!

Football League sponsors Sky Bet have quoted odds of 6/4 for a win by Rochdale with 17/10 for a Posh victory. The draw is priced at 5/2.

Have the bookies got their odds correct? Will Dale beat Posh or can Posh get back to winning ways? Predict the Posh v Dale score HERE.

There is currently a two-horse race for the favourite prediction so far with both predictions being for a Posh victory. Those two predictions are one-nil and three-nil but what do you think the score will be? You can get odds of 9/1 and 28/1 respectively for those two scorelines.

Last season, Posh did the double over Dale but Dale have the chance today to do the double over Posh.

Earlier in the season Dale won two-nil at Spotland with two goals in a three minute spell while last season Posh won 3-1 at the ABAX Stadium with goals from Jack Baldwin, Tom Nichols and Paul Taylor. Three players were also sent off by referee Chris Sarginson in the match with Dale losing a man in both halves.

The other match ended in a narrow 3-2 victory for Posh on the opening day of the season with Gwion Edwards nodding in the winner in the 89th minute.
