Charlton Athletic are currently the favourites to win League One following a bright start to their campaign which has seen Chris Powell’s team win four of their five opening matches.

The Addicks have a chance to draw back level with MK Dons and Sheffield United on Monday night, although they will have a tough test at The Valley against a Wednesday team still searching for their first points on the road.

Charlton are naturally strong favourites to claim victory in this match, although you can get odds of even money (bet365 – £200 free bets) that the south London keep pace at the top of League One, with the team having come back from a goal down to win at Bury last weekend.

The scorer of Bury’s goal that day will be lining up against Athletic again on Monday night, with Ryan Lowe having completed his move from the Shakers to Hillsborough before the transfer window shut and he is 8/1 (Ladbrokes – £50 free betting) to open the scoring in this game.

Wednesday can be backed at 3/1 to claim victory and Gary Megson will be hoping that the Owls can start repeating some of their home wins on the road, having beaten Rochdale, Notts County and Scunthorpe to date.

Even so, Charlton have been full of goals and all but one of their matches have seen three or more scored, so the 17/20 about Over 2.5 Goals looks to be the call, with Bradley Wright-Phillips looking a good call to score first at 5/1.
