Don't Speculate: 5 EFL football tips for Saturday's matches
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:
Leeds to beat Bolton
Second-bottom Bolton’s 3-2 defeat to league leaders Norwich last weekend means they have taken just three points in their last 11 matches.
The Trotters attack average just 2.8 shots on target per game and have managed only 15 league goals this season – the fewest in the Championship.
They are unlikely to improve on that without suspended winger Sammy Ameobi, who was sent off after scoring at Carrow Road, while late payment of players’ wages this week will have further damaged morale.
Leeds have won six of their last eight league games and have a taken six points out of six in their matches against the current bottom three.
Rotherham to beat Reading
Rotherham have lost just one of their last nine league games following their 2-2 draw away to Sheffield Wednesday last weekend and, despite seven of those being draws, they are worth backing.
All five of the Millers’ victories this season have come at the New York Stadium, where they have lost just once, and they have already beaten bottom-four sides Millwall and Ipswich.
Reading have accrued just seven points in their 10 away games and are on a five-match winless run in the league.
Luton to beat Coventry
Luton moved to second in League One following their 2-0 victory over Fleetwood last weekend, their seventh victory in eight unbeaten league games.
The Hatters are among the most dominant sides in the division in terms of xG, as per Experimental361, and that is reflected in them scoring the most in League One (41) and conceding the fifth-fewest (21).
Coventry haven’t kept a clean sheet in their last 10 matches in all competitions and have lost five games in a seven-match winless run.
Lincoln to beat Morecambe
Morecambe surrendered a two-goal lead in the final seven minutes to draw 2-2 with Port Vale last weekend, extending their winless run to four matches in all competitions.
The Shrimps were beaten 2-0 by MK Dons in their last away game and have lost all four of their matches against the current top four in League Two.
That run is likely to continue against second-placed Lincoln, who have taken 10 points from their four games against the current bottom six sides.
Bury to beat Oldham
Bury are League Two’s most-effective side in terms of chance creation and, aided by a forward line of Nicky Maynard, Byron Moore and Jay O’Shea, are the division’s top scorers with 40 goals.
That fearsome attack has seen the Shakers drop just two points in their last five league games and lose just one in 12.
They are a great price to get the better of inconsistent local rivals Oldham, who have only beaten bottom-eight sides Crewe, Cheltenham and Cambridge in their last 12 league games.
