Our Football League experts Simon Hopper, Ross Casey and Tom Powell have ploughed through the formbook and picked out 10 tips from the weekend’s action in the Championship, League One and League Two! Check out what they will be backing here…
Tom Powell’s Tips
Doncaster v Huddersfield (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Doncaster to win @ 23/10 – BET NOW
Doncaster may be on a poor run of form (no win in five) but they look a big price to beat an inconsistent Huddersfield side on home soil this weekend. Huddersfield have won just four away matches this term and have lost three of their last four on the road while only two sides in the bottom half have a better home record than Donny this term.
Notts County v Leyton Orient (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Leyton Orient to win @ 23/25 – BET NOW
Some firms are offering odds as short as 4/5 on Orient winning at Notts County on Saturday so 23/25 looks a touch of value. This match pits 2nd against bottom with Orient having won three on the spin, conceding just one goal in those matches while Notts County have lost six of their last seven matches and have conceded 11 in their last three outings.
AFC Wimbledon v York (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
AFC Wimbledon to win @ 8/5 – BET NOW
AFC Wimbledon followed up their win at Newport with a credible draw with Fleetwood last weekend to move themselves to within a point of Saturday's opponents York. York's recent away form isn't too bad but over the season they've managed just four wins so AFC Wimbledon look value to snatch the points.
Simon Hopper’s Tips
Stevenage v Tranmere (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Tranmere to win @ 29/10 – BET NOW
Stevenage have had a mini-revival recently but they still have the worst home record in League One and look much too short against a Tranmere side who are more than respectable on the road with five wins in their last 14.
Colchester v Coventry (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Coventry to win @ 9/5 – BET NOW
Nathan Delfouneso got Coventry their first win in five against Walsall in midweek and the Sky Blues can continue their revival at Colchester on Saturday. The U’s are winless in six and have lost seven of their last 14 at the Weston Homes.
Bristol Rovers v Pymouth (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
Bristol Rovers To Win @ 8/5 – BET NOW
Bristol Rovers are formidable at home with six wins in their last eight and they look good value on Saturday despite Plymouth’s good recent form.
Ross Casey’s Tips
Barnsley v Nottm Forest (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Nottm Forest To Win @ 5/4 – BET NOW
Even with a load of injuries and Billy Davies now banned from touchline Forest can get back to winning ways at Oakwell on Saturday. Barnsley have lost 36% of their home matches this season, and they will face fewer sides better than Forest this term. I think Forest are better set to win away from their expectant crowd and can get the three points here.
Middlesbrough v Ipswich (Sat, 15:00, Championship)
Both teams to score? Yes @ Evens – BET NOW
Middlesbrough have not won in their last seven games for a simple reason – they haven’t scored a single goal! That can’t last and I fully expect them to net against the pragmatic Ipswich. I also think without Shay Given in goal they will concede – as they did last week… so both teams to score at even money is my tip.
Shrewsbury v Bristol City (Sat, 15:00, League One)
Bristol City to win @ 163/100 – BET NOW
The Robins guided themselves out of safety with a late win over Gillingham last week, and after an inspirational speech from a terminally ill fan they seem to have a togetherness about them again, which was certainly missing. Stephen Pearson is back fit and offers industry in a previously pedestrian midfield and the classy Sam Baldock is scoring for fun. Back a Robins win in this relegation six-pointer.
Portsmouth v Cheltenham (Sat, 15:00, League Two)
Portsmouth to win @ 81/50 – BET NOW
Pompey look a new team under Richie Barker, they have won three of their last five games at Fratton Park and have kept three clean sheets in their last four matches. Last time out they travelled to league leaders Chesterfield and were unlucky to only come away with a goalless draw. Cheltenham are better away from home than at home, but face a side in decent nick – back the Hampshire side in this tie.
