Don't Speculate: 5 EFL football tips for Saturday's action
From 4pm on Friday, we will be boosting the price of these football tips from the Championship, League One and League Two.
Had you placed a £10 stake on Will Rook's EFL football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Nottingham Forest to beat Preston
Nottingham Forest’s 2-0 win over bottom-of-the-league Ipswich last weekend extended their unbeaten run to seven matches in the Championship.
Aitor Karanka’s side have lost just once, to league leaders Norwich, in their last 14 matches and are great value this weekend against inconsistent opponents.
Preston’s 3-0 defeat at Birmingham – aided by a piece of comedy goalkeeping from Declan Rudd – was their first in 10 matches, but they have won just one of their nine away games in the league.
Luton to beat Fleetwood
Luton have the best home record in League One, having dropped just four points in 11 unbeaten matches at Kenilworth Road this season.
The Hatters won have six games in a seven-match unbeaten run and have been at their free-scoring best recently, winning their last three by an aggregate score of 12-2.
Fleetwood, who have lost their last four away games in the league, should be scared.
Portsmouth to beat Southend
Portsmouth’s 2-1 victory over Arsenal U21s in the EFL Trophy was their seventh in a row and 12th without defeat in all competitions.
Kenny Jackett’s side have lost just one of their 19 league games this season and are four points clear at the top.
They should coast past a Southend side that were beaten 2-1 at second-bottom Wimbledon and have lost three away games on the spin in the league.
Colchester to beat Macclesfield
Sol Campbell lost his first game in management in midweek as Macclesfield were beaten on penalties by Newcastle U21s in the EFL Trophy.
The Silkmen are bottom of the league with just 13 points after 20 matches and, despite back-to-back league victories, will struggle to get anything from in-form hosts.
Colchester have won five and drawn one of their last six games in all competitions at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
MK Dons to beat Carlisle
MK Dons lead the way in League Two, following a 2-0 win at home to Morecambe last time out.
That was a fifth straight league victory at Stadium MK for Paul Tisdale’s side, who have dropped just six points in 10 unbeaten games at their own ground this season.
Carlisle have managed just three victories in their last 12 matches in all competitions and, with an xG that suggests they are among the least creative in the division, it is difficult to see their form improving.
