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:
Preston to beat Sheffield Wednesday
After surrendering the lead to lose 2-1 at Swansea last week, Sheffield Wednesday have managed just one win from their last 10 matches, leaving manager Jos Luhukay on the verge of the sack.
The Owls face an average of 15.5 shots every game and have conceded 40 league goals – the most in the Championship.
Preston have won four of their last six league games and failed to score just once in their last 15 matches, so it is hard to see their out-of-form hosts holding out.
Stoke to beat Millwall
Third-bottom Millwall’s winless run stands at seven matches following their 3-2 defeat away to Preston last time out.
The Lions are also yet to win away from home this season, picking up just three points from their 11 games on the road.
Stoke are on a nine-game unbeaten run and have won both of their matches against sides currently in the relegation zone.
Bradford City to beat Scunthorpe
Bradford underlined their new-found attacking freedom by thumping Walsall 4-0 at home last Saturday.
The Bantams have bagged 11 goals in their last three matches in all competitions, having failed to score more than two in any other game this season.
The mood at Valley Parade has dramatically shifted since chairman Edin Rahic’s departure earlier this month and their only defeat in nine, excluding EFL Trophy games, came at high-flying Luton in November.
Scunthorpe have lost five straight games in all competitions, scoring just once in that sequence, and will be leapfrogged by their opponents with another defeat this weekend.
Luton to beat Burton
Second-placed Luton recorded their eighth victory in nine unbeaten league matches as they beat Coventry 2-1 at the Ricoh Arena last weekend.
The Hatters have the best home record in League One, having dropped just four points in 11 matches at Kenilworth Road.
They have won each of their last five home games in the league by two or more goals and are my banker of the week against a mid-table Burton side with three defeats in their last four matches.
MK Dons to beat Colchester
MK Dons come into this fixture on the back of six straight league victories at Stadium MK and, at this price, are well worth backing for a seventh.
Paul Tisdale’s side have the best home record in League Two and are the only side yet to lose on their own turf.
Colchester were hammered 4-0 by an inconsistent Carlisle side last weekend and have lost five of their last six away games.
