Best Tip: Under 3.5 goals

Our calculations suggest that there's minimal chance that this fixture will deliver more than 3 goals at most, and the odds and stats are in line with KO's predictive algorithm on this one. Forest Green and MK Dons have rarely served up thrillers of late, whether that be in League Two individually or in head-to-head clashes. So, in the absence of a convincing favourite draw or double chance market, we're suggesting under 3.5 goals. The UK's top bookies have that available at a best price of 1.36.
