Football League Betting
It was another profitable season for the Top 10 Football League tips page last season and we're back to line your pockets for the 2014/15 campaign! Tom Powell, Simon Hopper and Ross Casey will be on hand every week of the new season with their best bets from the Championship, League One and League Two. Here are our weekend selections...
Tom Powell’s Tips
Derby v Fulham (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Fulham or Draw Double Chance @ 11/10 – BET NOW
Admittedly, Fulham have had a torrid start to the season but have only been losing by a solitary goal each time so at 11/10 they look value to get their first points on the board at Derby this weekend. Derby sit 14th in the league after their midweek loss at Charlton so are far from outstanding therefore look too short a price at 4/5 to win the match.
MK Dons v Coventry (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Coventry or Draw Double Chance @ 21/20 – BET NOW
There’s little between these sides early on in the season with MK Dons having taken six points from a possible nine while Coventry have managed four points from their three matches. Crucially the Sky Blues are unbeaten in their last two with both matches being against tough opposition in Sheff Utd and Barnsley so I don’t think they’ll lose here.
Cambridge Utd v Morecambe (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
Morecambe to win @ 13/5 – BET NOW
I backed Morecambe last weekend as they came from behind to beat Newport and they made it three wins from three by beating Oxford in midweek. Cambridge sit 13th having won one of their three matches so far this season but look worth taking on at a best price 5/4.
Newport v Burton (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
Burton to win @ 77/50 – BET NOW
I keep saying Newport will struggle this season and after three losses from three I will continue to back teams playing the South wales side. Burton sit second after winning all three of their matches so look value at 77/50.
Simon Hopper’s Tips
Port Vale v Notts County (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Port Vale to win @ 13/10 – BET NOW
Port Vale’s home record last season was excellent (13 wins in their last 22 at home) and they’ve started the season unbeaten so I see no reason why they should be as big as 13/10 against a Notts County side who are abysmal on the road. Star striker Tom Pope is also in great form.
Wigan v Blackpool (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Blackpool or Draw Double Chance @ 9/4 – BET NOW
Blackpool will continue to be value until they avoid defeat – they’ve only lost 2-1 in their last two matches and are not as bad as the bookmakers think. Out of sorts Wigan could be just the right place for Jose Riga’s troops to land us a nice touch in the double chance market.
Preston v Oldham (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Oldham or Draw Double Chance @ 13/10 – BET NOW
Preston have long been touted as League 1 front-runners but their woeful home win record is conveniently ignored by many – just 12 wins in their last 24, including a disappointing 1-1 draw against Notts County this term. Oldham had the 10th best away record in the division last season and have only lost one in three so far this campaign – they’re value at 13/10 in the double chance market.
Ross Casey’s Tips
Brentford v Birmingham (Saturday, 15:00, Championship)
Clayton Donaldson anytime scorer @ 3/1 – BET NOW
Clayton Donaldson shot Brentford to the Championship last season, scoring 18 goals in last year’s promotion campaign. He then jumped ship to St Andrews on a free transfer this summer and this weekend sees him return to his former home. After netting twice in four games this season, I think the reaction from the Griffin Park crowd will spur him on to make it three in five.
Yeovil v Scunthorpe (Saturday, 15:00, League One)
Yeovil to win @ 28/25 – BET NOW
Yeovil had a nightmare start to the season but got back to winning ways on Tuesday night with a 2-1 win away at Walsall. A home tie against Scunthorpe at Huish Park on Saturday should give them the chance to gain back to back wins. The Iron have lost all three league matches this season, conceding nine goals in the process. Back a home win.
Exeter v York (Saturday, 15:00, League Two)
York to win @ 17/10 – BET NOW
I tipped York to do great things this season and thus far it has been a case of oh so near. Two last minute goals conceded meant they dropped points following a last minute equaliser in midweek. This leaves them with three points instead of a possible nine. I am backing them again this week to put things right against a lowly Exeter side who have lost each of their last three games.
