Sky Bet weekend betting preview

Back the Grecians with a free £10 bet

City fans that sign up to Sky Bet through our dedicated link – – will earn themselves a free £10 bet this weekend – and how better to spend your free bet than backing the Grecians for a derby-day victory?!

The Grecians are looking to right the wrong of last season’s Home Park derby defeat by searching for all three points against the Pilgrims when they lock horns at 1pm at St James Park on Saturday in the long-awaited Devon Derby.

As well as local pride, there are an important three points at stake – which could see the Grecians go second in Sky Bet League 2, at least until the 3pm fixtures are all done.

Sky Bet are offering odds of 7/5 for a City victory in the Devon Derby – representing that the Grecians are favourites, but that the tie is likely to be a tight affair.

Exeter have made a habit of showing resolve this season, and have come from behind to win games no less than three times already this season.  You can get odds of 28/1 on City doing things the hard way again by trailing at half-time, but finishing the game victorious.

All of the Grecians’ games this season have been relatively tight affairs, and the price is 5/2 for City to win by a scoreline of 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.

If you fancy the game to get off to a riproaring start and the first goal to be registered within the first ten minutes, 3/1 is the price being offered by  Sky Bet.  Instead, if you think it’ll be a cagey affair and that a goalkeeper won’t be beaten until the final ten minutes of the game, the odds are 20/1 on that scenario.

And last weekend’s goalscoring hero Scot Bennett is generously priced to net once again after a good goalscoring start to the season.  The versatile City man is 3/1 to score in 90 minutes, and 20/1 to repeat last week’s feat and net a brace.

Remember, if you haven’t already got a Sky Bet account, you can get a completely free £10 when you join and Exeter will also get £10 when you make your first deposit.

As well as that, Exeter will benefit as you bet throughout the season, so make sure you open your account via
