EFL football tips: A 20/1 four-fold for Saturday’s matches

Aidan Perkins' EFL acca for Saturday's games includes wins for Ipswich and Leicester in the Championship.

Best bets

Ipswich to beat Swansea & over 2.5 goals @ 6/5
Leicester to beat Middlesbrough @ 5/4
Southampton to beat West Brom @ 10/11
Watford to win to nil v Rotherham @ 6/5

Ipswich v Swansea

Ipswich have drawn back-to-back Championship games but should be able to bounce back with a win when they host Swansea.

The Tractor Boys are just three points behind Leicester at the top of the table, having won 11 of their 15 games this season.

Swansea, in contrast, are lodged firmly in mid-table as they struggle for consistency in the second tier.

The Swans have taken four points from the last 12 available and could fall to their seventh defeat of the campaign against a quality Ipswich side.

Kieran McKenna’s men have won six of their seven home games and six of their last seven matches have featured over 2.5 goals so back the hosts for victory with three or more goals.

Middlesbrough v Leicester

Leicester lost just their second game of the season against Leeds last weekend but they have too much quality to suffer back-to-back defeats and they are fancied to pick up another win here.

The Foxes visit a Middlesbrough side who were beaten by Stoke before drawing 3-3 with Plymouth last time out.

Michael Carrick’s men have already lost three times on home soil this season and may struggle to break down a Leicester backline that has conceded just nine times all season.

Boro, on the other hand, have shipped 23 goals in 15 games and could be exposed against a Leicester team filled with Premier League quality.

Southampton v West Brom

Southampton and West Brom are separated by just a point in the top six but the Saints are fancied to get the better of the argument when the two meet on Saturday.

Russell Martin’s men are now seven games unbeaten with five wins in that run as they seem to be clicking under the Scotsman’s unique playing style.

West Brom are also in solid form but have faced some of the teams battling relegation recently and this is a significant step up.

The Baggies have also taken just nine points from a possible 21 on the road and look likely to fall to defeat.

Watford v Rotherham

Watford have been in solid, if unspectacular, form recently but they have the best defensive record in the bottom half of the Championship and should be able to shut out strugglers Rotherham.

The Millers have won two of their 15 matches and only Norwich have conceded more than their 30 goals this season.

The Hornets can pick up their third win in their last five games with a victory in this clash and they should be able to manage it with a clean sheet to boot.
