Don't Speculate: 5 EFL football tips for Saturday's matches
We have boosted the price of this accumulator, which features football tips from the Championship, League One and League Two, to 20/1.
Had you placed a £10 stake on Will Rook's EFL football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Brentford to beat QPR
Brentford’s 2-0 defeat away to Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday evening should not detract from their impressive home record under Thomas Frank.
The Bees pumped Hull 5-1 at Griffin Park last weekend, with Said Benrahma scoring a sumptuous hat-trick, and have won seven games in an eight-game unbeaten run at home – only failing to beat league leaders Norwich on New Year’s Day.
QPR have lost each of their last four on the road in the league and won just one of their last 10 away games in all competitions.
Luton to beat Rochdale
It will come as no surprise to regular readers of these tips that Luton are appearing here again, having come through for us on 12 of the 15 occasions I’ve tipped them this season.
The Hatters drew 1-1 at home to Coventry last Sunday, despite having chances to win late on, and extended their unbeaten run to a club-record 21 league games.
They have the best home record in League One and are one of three sides yet to lose on their own patch this season, while they are five points clear at the top of the table.
Rochdale have lost eight of their last 10 league games and were hammered 5-1 away to strugglers Plymouth last weekend – the fifth time in that sequence they have conceded four or more.
Portsmouth to beat Bradford
Bradford lost 3-2 away to fellow strugglers Walsall last weekend, despite the latter having lost eight of their previous nine and playing 84 minutes without top scorer Andy Cook after he was sent off.
That result left the Bantams three points from safety and was enough to force manager David Hopkin to resign after less than six months in charge.
They have won just once in 14 away games in all competitions, while they have managed only one victory in their last eight league games.
Portsmouth’s own form is not great, having won for the first time in nine matches in midweek as they beat League Two Bury 3-0 in the EFL Trophy, but this fixture is the perfect opportunity to turn it around.
Mansfield to beat Cheltenham
Mansfield won their fourth straight league game at the One Call Stadium last Saturday, beating promotion rivals Forest Green 1-0.
The Stags have the second-best home record in League Two, having lost just one of their last 13 league games on their own patch.
They should earn another three points against a Cheltenham side that has lost each of their last four away games to nil.
Morecambe to beat Yeovil
Morecambe lost 2-0 at home to Lincoln last Saturday, but had won back-to-back matches prior to that for only the second time this season.
One of those victories came against third-bottom Port Vale, meaning the Shrimpers have won three and drawn two of their five matches against sides in the bottom four.
Away to fourth-bottom Yeovil, who had lost six on the spin prior to their 1-0 victory over out-of-form Cambridge last Saturday, they are one of the best value bets in the EFL this week.
