Throughout the 2020/21 season, we will be tracking the profit/loss of Will Rook's football tips based on a £10 stake. Keep checking back for updated totals.
Blackburn to beat Wycombe
That Wycombe were beaten by Rotherham last weekend in what looks likely to be one of their easiest games of the season does not bode well for their chances in the Championship.
The Chairboys conceded in stoppage time to lose 1-0 at home to the Millers, who were also promoted from League One last season.
They are bound to find it tougher against Blackburn, who ran a Bournemouth side that featured 10 regular Premier League starters close last weekend in a 3-2 defeat.
Brentford to beat Huddersfield
Brentford’s 1-0 defeat at Birmingham last weekend was a bad start to the season following their defeat in the play-off final, but there are reasons to be hopeful.
Thomas Frank’s side won the overall xG battle with a score of 1.8 (experimental361), while the three highest individual scorers in the same metric were all Brentford players, indicating that they at least created plenty of chances.
Playing their first competitive match at the Brentford Community Stadium, they have to be fancied against a Huddersfield side that lost to League One Rochdale in the cup and were beaten by Norwich last weekend.
Lincoln to beat MK Dons
This feels like a hefty price for a side that has made such a positive start to the season.
Lincoln come into this on the back of a 5-0 thumping of Bradford City in the EFL Cup, having beaten last season’s play-off finalists Oxford 2-0 in their league opener last weekend.
It’s been a tough start for MK Dons, who needed an 88th-minute equaliser to take a point off Doncaster last weekend and also went out of the EFL Cup at the first hurdle.
Gillingham to beat Wigan
Wigan began this season with just 11 senior professionals on their books, having shed almost all of their experienced players over summer in a cost-cutting exercise.
The Latics have lost back-to-back games to Fleetwood and Ipswich in the EFL Cup and League One respectively.
They do at least now have a manager in John Sheridan who is looking to add players, but this price is too good to ignore for a Gillingham side that put Championship Coventry out of the cup on penalties in midweek.
Colchester to beat Bolton
Despite starting the season as the League Two title favourites, Bolton have lost three games out of three in all competitions.
Though their squad contains plenty of quality for this level – including Antoni Sarcevic and last season’s top goalscorer Eoin Doyle – getting 18 new signings to gel is proving difficult.
Colchester kicked off their league campaign with a goalless draw at Bradford City and look a big price back on their own patch, where they won seven of their final 12 League Two games last term to reach the play-offs.
