Charlton Athletic
Wycombe Wanderers

Charlton welcome Wycombe to the Valley for a game which on the face of it will look like a home banker. However, due to the issues swirling around the London club, Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers betting tips which favour the home side should be looked at with some caution. Both club owner Roland Duchatelet and caretaker manager Lee Bowyer are the focus of major scrutiny at the moment, and a side which should be looking at promotion is now very much taking each game as it comes.

Journeyman striker Lyle Taylor is 11/8 with William Hill to score at any time in this game, and with his record of three in six for the hosts has been one of the few bright spots in a strained start to the season. The Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers best odds of the weekend, however, may be on the draw (12/5, 138.com). Wycombe have seen half of their matches finish honours even so far this campaign, and with the hosts unlikely to be 100% focused on the pitch they may well drop points here. However, if you fancy the visitors to deepen the current crisis at the Valley, then you can back them to win the contest 1-0, which is available at 9/1 with Betway.

Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers Betting Tips: Form Guide

Addicks Seek Some Positive News

Lee Bowyer’s run as caretaker manager at the end of last season coincided with a run of decent form that got the club into the playoffs and gave them a chance of promotion back to the Championship. Success there might have accelerated the process of selling the club, which Duchatelet has indicated is a priority for him given the parlous financial state of the club, but as things turned out, the Addicks were knocked out before the final and faced another season in the third tier. This has meant that the takeover has dragged on, making the appointment of a permanent manager problematic, and Bowyer has been rehired in a caretaker capacity.

On the field, Charlton have been decent enough, but the recent news that staff will have performance-related bonuses withheld due to ongoing financial difficulties has cast a shadow over recent performances. A 0-0 draw with Fleetwood and a 2-1 win over Southend have been impressive results, but defeats at MK Dons and at home to Peterborough, allied to a draw with Accrington Stanley, have seen points dropped where they shouldn’t have been. Bowyer’s reaction to what he deemed a poor refereeing performance in the Peterborough game has also seen him called up on a charge of bringing the game into disrepute. Familiar territory for him, perhaps, but not what his club needs at the present time.

With fans protesting against the club’s ownership, it’s tough to consider the fact that this game is at home as an advantage for Charlton. While Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers betting tips for today may lean in their favour, an early goal against could spell further trouble for the embattled Addicks.

Wanderers Wobble Without Wins

After six games of the season, Wycombe currently have a single league win, secured at Bradford City by a margin of 2-1. Veteran striker Craig Mackail-Smith scored one of the goals with Bryn Morris adding the second before a late Bradford consolation. Frustratingly for the Adams Park outfit, there have been chances to up the number of points beyond the six from six they have at present. Most recently, a home fixture with Luton Town started well when Joe Jacobson stroked home a 15th-minute penalty. Early in the second half, a handball offered Jacobson the chance to double his tally and his side’s lead, but his effort was saved. A soft equaliser for Luton ensured the points were shared.

If the Luton game was a case of two points dropped, then an earlier draw – at Plymouth – did at least see Wycombe pick a point up from a losing position. Having trailed since the fourth minute, Wanderers’ continued efforts to get back in the game paid off six minutes from time, when giant striker Adebayo Akinfenwa laid on an equaliser for Matt Bloomfield. More than a few Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers match previews will indicate that Akinfenwa – famed for his “Beast Mode” brand – could have a key part to play if Wycombe are to pull off a result at the Valley.

Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers Preview: Recent Meetings

Wycombe have spent the last six seasons in League Two, so this weekend’s meeting is the first encounter between these sides since 2012. That match, an April meeting between a Charlton side who won the League One title and a Wycombe side who would end up relegated, was surprisingly competitive. Striker Yann Kermorgant gave Charlton the lead on 14 minutes, but Stuart Beavon notched an equaliser for the visitors just before half time. It would take until the 74th minute, and a goal for Dale Stephens – now of Brighton – for the hosts to secure all three points. No player involved that day will be on the pitch this weekend, although Wycombe’s current manager Gareth Ainsworth did occupy a spot on their bench that day as an unused substitute, and will hope for a better result in this encounter.

Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers Prediction: Nervy Low-Scoring Draw

Objectively, as the home side and the team with the better record, Charlton should be able to enter this match with confidence and emerge as the winners – and there is a solid chance of them doing so. However, the turmoil surrounding the club makes it difficult to predict that as an outcome. As the club pinballs from one crisis to another, it feels as though they’re never more than a game away from another piece of bad news.

That doesn’t mean they’ll lose here. Wycombe – pleased just to be back in League One – are struggling to get wins on the board, and Charlton’s crisis is not so deep that it is resulting in them losing most of their games. One of their defeats this season came against Peterborough, who until last weekend had won all of their games this season. It’s hard, in light of all the facts, to call either side sure winners here. It feels like a potential draw, in a scrappy game, and our Charlton Athletic vs Wycombe Wanderers prediction is that this game will end in a low-scoring stalemate that will probably be acceptable to both.

Thanks for reading – please do keep coming back to Betting.org for more previews and betting tips – the major leagues will be back next week after the international break, but we’ll be keeping an eye on the lower leagues too. Keep an eye out for the tips that will help you make better bets.
