Had you placed a £10 stake on Will Rook's EFL football betting tips for the 2018/19 season, your profit would be:
Sheffield Wednesday to beat Reading
Sheffield Wednesday started the Steve Bruce era with a victory last weekend, beating Ipswich 1-0 away from home.
That was the Owls’ third victory to nil in four matches, with their only defeat during that run coming away to Chelsea in the FA Cup fourth round.
They are well worth backing at longer than evens against a Reading side that are on a 12-match winless run on the road and have managed just one victory in their last 15 in all competitions.
Swansea to beat Millwall
Millwall were held to a 0-0 draw at home to Rotherham last weekend, who have the second-worst away record in the Championship.
The Lions’ travelling record isn’t much better, having won just once and collected only seven points in their 14 league games away from The Den.
Swansea have lost just one of their last six matches in all competitions at the Liberty Stadium and have winger Daniel James available again after his deadline-day move to Leeds collapsed.
Barnsley to beat Gillingham
Barnsley are, by some distance, League One’s best side in terms of creating chances. They have averaged over 15 attempts per match this season and generated an average xG of more than 1.7 per game (experimental361).
Those numbers have contributed to the Tykes’ 10-match unbeaten run in League One, which has seen them win seven times and climb to second in the table.
They have beaten strugglers Scunthorpe, Rochdale, Wimbledon and Bradford in their last five and, against a Gillingham side with just one win in their last six league games, should add another on Saturday.
Luton to beat Wycombe
Luton coasted past Shrewsbury with a 3-0 away victory to extend their lead at the top of League One to six points, continuing their impressive form since manager Nathan Jones left for Stoke.
The Hatters are unbeaten in their last 18 league games and have won four out of five since Jones departed, only dropping points in a 1-1 draw away to Sunderland last month.
They have the best home record in the division, having won 12 and drawn three of their 15 games at Kenilworth Road, and are worth backing at almost any price this weekend.
Wycombe have won just two of their last 13 away games in all competitions and were beaten 2-0 at Luton in the FA Cup in November.
Bury to beat Morecambe
Bury’s 1-1 draw at home to Crawley last weekend extended their unbeaten run to nine matches in all competitions.
The Shakers have won six times in that sequence, including matches against fellow promotion chasers Forest Green and MK Dons, while their xG figures (experimental361) project them as one of the three best sides in League Two both in attack and defence.
They should beat Morecambe, who have lost all three games against the current top three and are without a victory in seven.
