Don't Speculate: 5 EFL football tips for New Year's Day
From 4pm we'll be boosting the price of these football tips from the Championship, League One and League Two.
Hull to beat Bolton
Hull come into this fixture on the back of a 2-0 victory away to league leaders Leeds, inflicting only their second league defeat of the season at Elland Road.
That was the Tigers' fourth straight victory and seventh without defeat, despite having been in the relegation zone little over a month ago.
They should continue their impressive run against a Bolton side that have lost three successive away games and are winless in 10 matches on the road.
Bradford to beat Accrington
Bradford blew Rochdale away in their final match of 2018, registering their second 4-0 victory in four matches.
The Bantams have taken 10 points from their last five league games, almost doubling their tally of 14 from the rest of the season in that sequence, and have lost to only high-flying Sunderland and Luton in their last eight.
They are benefiting from improved performances from key players, including attackers Eoin Doyle and Jack Payne, who have scored six goals between them in the last five matches and also had a legitimate goal chalked off at Sunderland on Boxing Day.
Accrington were hammered 4-0 by Peterborough last weekend and come into this game with three defeats from their last four away games.
Charlton to beat Walsall
Charlton have lost back-to-back away games, but their impressive record at the Valley indicates they are worth backing here.
The Addicks have dropped just two points in their last six league games at home and also won the reverse fixture 2-0 in November.
Walsall have won just one of their last 10 matches in League One and have lost to bottom-six sides Bradford and Bristol Rovers in their last four.
Peterborough to beat Scunthorpe
Scunthorpe ended a seven-game losing streak by beating Wycombe 1-0 last time out, but they are worth getting against here at close to evens.
The Iron were indebted to goalkeeper Jak Alnwick for a match-saving stop, while the visitors had an equaliser dubiously disallowed for offside.
Stuart McCall's side have the worst defence in League One, having conceded 51 goals, and will be picked off by the second-best attack, which have scored 45 times.
Peterborough beat Accrington 4-0 last weekend and have lost just one of their last 13 matches in all competitions.
MK Dons to beat Cambridge
Cambridge rounded off 2018 with a 2-1 defeat to league leaders Lincoln, while they have lost nine of their last 11 away games.
Second-placed MK Dons have the third-best home record in League Two and should make light work of their visitors.
Paul Tisdale's side have won six of their last seven matches at Stadium MK and also beat Cambridge in the reverse fixture in October.
