The County Ground, Swindon, sees the visit of Oldham Athletic on Saturday afternoon. RED should be there. Instead, RED is in London, at Senate House, at the Computational and Financial Econometrics conference.

The match is a clash of form teams… sort of. Swindon genuinely are in form, winning six on the bounce. Oldham are unbeaten in five, but three have been draws. Oldham are in 21st, Swindon are in 1st.

Oldham and Swindon are seemingly almost always in the same division, be it the 1992-93 Premier League season, or be it this season, and last season, in League Two. The clashes are usually tight, even when Swindon are challenging and, as usual, Oldham are floundering.

Will it be tight tomorrow? A 1-0 home win is most likely at 12.4%, and is surely a good bet. Being biased, I hope that a 2-1 away win, at just 5.8%, occurs…
