Sky Bet League 1 - Weekend Betting PreviewPreston North End v Crewe Alexandra
Preston are the odds-on favourites at 4/11 to consolidate their place in the automatic promotion places with victory at home to Crewe on Saturday. North End sit second in Sky Bet League 1 with a two-point advantage over third-placed Swindon. Crewe have been made the big outsiders at 15/2 for the win with the draw priced up at 100/30. Preston are a side in form with seven victories from their previous nine games and the only defeat in that run came against Manchester United in the FA Cup. Crewe ended a four-match losing run by beating Scunthorpe last time out but the trip to Deepdale provides a really tough test. Preston have scored first in all eight of their last eight contests and can be backed at 1/3 to strike first again.
