Football League Betting
Our Football League experts Ross Casey, Simon Hopper and Tom Powell have ploughed through the formbook and picked out 10 tips from the midweek action in the Championship, League One and League Two! Check out what they will be backing here…
Tom Powell’s Tips
Middlesbrough v Millwall (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Middlesbrough to win @ Evens – BET NOW
Boro have won four matches on the spin (conceding just one goal in those matches) to haul themselves up to 12th in the Championship table. Millwall make the long trip north on Saturday afternoon after picking up just two wins in eight so get behind the hosts.
Huddersfield v Brighton (Fri, 15:00, Championship)
Brighton to win @ 23/20 – BET NOW
Brighton can give their play-off hopes a huge boost with a win at Huddersfield on Friday afternoon and after winning their last two matches by three goal margins it’d be hard to bet against them. Huddersfield are all but safe so there’ll be less urgency from them so back the visitors to extend the Terriers’ nine match winless run.
Bristol City v Notts County (Fri, 15:00, League One)
Bristol City to win @ 13/10 – BET NOW
City have won five of their last nine to move up to 14th in the League One table after spending much of the campaign in the relegation zone. They were 1-0 winners at Walsall at the weekend and now face a Notts County side who are just one place above the drop zone and who lost in their last away match at Brentford.
Sheff Utd v Stevenage (Fri, 19:45, League One)
Sheff Utd to win @ 10/11 – BET NOW
Some firms are offering odds as short as 3/4 on a Sheff United win here and so 10/11 looks a decent price with the Blades having ended their three game winless run with a 1-0 win over Rotherham in their last league match. Stevenage are rooted to the foot of the league following an eight match winless run which includes back to back defeats in their last two outings.
Burton v Hartlepool (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
Burton to win @ 20/21 – BET NOW
Another odds on shot but another very fair price with Hartlepool going into this match off the back of five straight losses while Burton sit 5th in the League Two table having conceded just one goal in their last four matches.
Ross Casey’s Tips
Barnsley v Leeds (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Leeds to win @ 2/1 – BET NOW
Leeds got back to winning ways last weekend with a decent 2-0 win at home to Blackpool and they can heap pressure on Barnsley’s relegation scrap by winning this Yorkshire derby. Back a Leeds win at 2/1.
Wigan v Reading (Fri, 15:00, Championship)
Reading to win @ 17/5 – BET NOW
Last weekend’s penalty shoot-out loss to Arsenal was a bitter pill to swallow for Wigan and I think they may suffer a hangover here against a Reading side desperate to hang onto their play-off place and who seem better at securing wins on the road.
Bradford v Peterborough (Fri, 19:45, League One)
Bradford to win @ 51/20 – BET NOW
Bradford have been brilliant on the road – now it’s time they performed in front of their home fans! I think odds of 51/20 are more than generous on the Bantams to beat a Posh side who are all but assured of a play-off spot.
Port Vale v MK Dons (Fri, 15:00, League One)
MK Dons to win @ 29/20 – BET NOW
Turmoil at Port Vale’s training ground means that both Daniel Jones and captain Doug Loft will miss that match and MK can take advantage by putting to bed the ghosts of another season of oh so nearly.
Oxford v York (Fri, 15:00, League Two)
York Draw No Bet @ 11/10 – BET NOW
Oxford and York meet in this huge League Two clash which will have huge implications for the play-offs. I fancy York in the draw no bet market as they have not lost any of their last 13 matches.
