    Simon Hopper's Tips

    Bradford v Crawley (Tues, 19:45, League 1)

    Lay Bradford @ 1.59 – BET NOW

    Bradford have their huge FA Cup quarter-final against Reading this weekend and their cup form has certainly had an effect on their league campaign, with just two wins in nine league matches in 2015. Crawley are battling ferociously in their bid to avoid the drop and Dean Saunders has taken seven points from nine, including a creditable 1-1 draw with Sheffield United last weekend. The Bantams look far too short here and I’m happy to lay them at 1.59 on Betfair.

    Birmingham v Blackpool (Wed, 19:45, Championship)

    Lay Birmingham @ 1.64 – BET NOW

    Gary Rowett’s Birmingham snapped an eight game winless league run by beating Brentford 1-0 at the weekend but it’s still undeniable that the Blues have lost their early momentum under the former Burton boss. Blackpool look doomed to relegation but in reality they don’t lose that many games under Lee Clark – just nine of their last 19 in the Championship. They’ve also had some mighty tough road assignments recently so take their poor away form with a pinch of salt. I’ll lay Birmingham at 1.64.

    Ross Casey's Tips

    Bolton v Reading (Tues, 20:00, Championship)

    Bolton To Win @ 163/100 – BET NOW

    Back to back 3-0 losses will do nothing for confidence for the Royals and Steve Clarke’s side are next facing a Bolton side who are terrific at home. They have won eight of their last 13 at the Macron and I like the odds of 163/100 for another win here.

    Leeds v Ipswich (Wed, 19:45, Championship)

    Leeds To Win @ 21/10 – BET NOW

    The pressure is on Ipswich now with their hopes of a play-off spot suffering a severe blow with just four wins in their last 12 games. Leeds have improved of late with their youthful side impressing many an admirer. They will need to root out their defensive lapses but I think they look a great price here at 21/10.

    Birmingham v Blackpool (Wed, 19:45, Championship)

    Birmingham To Win @ 31/50 – BET NOW

    Blackpool have lost 13 of their 19 away matches this season so I believe they will lose yet again here against a Birmingham side who beat high-flying Brentford at home on the weekend. A short price but one that has reason to be!

    Leyton Orient v Bristol City (Tues, 19:45, League One)

    Draw @ 12/5 – BET NOW

    League leaders Bristol City are unbeaten in five at the Matchroom Stadium but they are up against an Orient side who have won three of the last four despite reports of backroom unrest and financial problems. I think this one will be a draw.

    Stevenage v Plymouth (Tues, 19:45, League 2)

    Ben Kennedy Anytime Goalscorer @ 6/1 – BET NOW

    Paddy Power seem to be missing a trick on Ben Kennedy. The young Stevenage striker is still only five games into his professional career but he has already scored three goals! The 6/1 on offer here for a goal looks too good to miss!
