Sunday Betting Guide: Our writers' 10 best football tips
We've compiled our writers’ best football tips, including win/draw/win and BTTS, into one bite-size betting preview for Sunday's EFL matches.
Brentford to beat Millwall (15:00)
Brentford beat play-off contenders Swansea 3-1 at Griffin Park on Boxing Day to move up to third in the Championship, within three points of second-placed Leeds.
That was the Bees’ third victory in four matches, having taken four points from games against league leaders West Brom and fifth-placed Fulham prior to that.
Millwall lost 2-1 to second-bottom Barnsley in their last home game and are winless in three at The Den.
Doncaster to beat Sunderland (15:00)
This is a generous price for Doncaster to beat a club that, arguably, have never been in worse shape.
Sunderland fell to 15th in League One – their lowest ever league position – following a goalless draw at home to bottom-of-the-league Bolton, extending their winless run to nine matches in all competitions.
Doncaster hammered promotion candidates Peterborough 3-0 away from home on Boxing Day, and have only lost two of their 11 games at the Keepmoat Stadium this season.
Wycombe to beat Coventry (15:00)
Wycombe are six points clear at the top of League One with the best home record in the division.
The Chairboys have won nine and drawn two of their 11 games at Adams Park and are one of just two sides in the division that are yet to lose on home turf.
Coventry are without a league win on the road this season, losing to out-of-form MK Dons and Shrewsbury in their last three away games.
Plymouth to beat Stevenage (15:00)
These odds are skinnier than I normally like to tip up in Betting Guides, but it’s an absolute banker.
Plymouth beat seventh-placed Cheltenham on Boxing Day to record their fourth victory in five matches – three of which came against top-seven sides.
Bottom-of-the-league Stevenage are currently on a six-match winless run and have the worst travelling record in League Two, having taken seven points from 11 matches.
Swindon to beat Port Vale (15:00)
No side in League Two has taken more points in their last 10 matches than the 25 accrued by leaders Swindon.
Richie Wellens’ side have only dropped two points in their last five, keeping clean sheets in each of those victories.
Port Vale are on a five-match winless streak, having sacrificed a two-goal lead at underperforming Mansfield on Boxing Day.
Millwall v Brentford (15:00)
Millwall have scored in their last 17 games, with BTTS landing in 14.
BTTS had also landed in eight of the last nine at The Den.
Brentford have scored 11 goals in their last six away games.
Crewe v Scunthorpe (15:00)
BTTS has landed in five consecutive Crewe matches.
David Artell’s side have scored in 21 of their last 24 games in all competitions.
Scunthorpe have netted in eight of their last nine matches.
Port Vale v Swindon (15:00)
Port Vale have scored and conceded in seven of their last nine home matches.
John Askey’s side have netted in nine of their last 11 games overall, including in a 1-1 draw with Cheltenham last time out at home.
Swindon drew 2-2 at Forest Green last time out away, and have scored in their last 12 league games.
Fleetwood not to beat Bristol Rovers (15:00)
Fleetwood won for the first time in four matches on Boxing Day, coming from two goals down to beat fifth-bottom Rochdale 3-2 on Boxing Day.
Joey Barton’s side have only managed two victories in their last six league games.
Bristol Rovers have won five away games on the bounce, so this looks a big price for them to avoid defeat.
Eoin Doyle (Swindon) v Port Vale (15:00)
Doyle became the first player since Jamie Vardy to score in 11 consecutive English league games by bagging Swindon’s opener in their 4-0 win over Cambridge last time out.
The Irishman is the top scorer in League Two with 22 goals in 21 appearances for the Robins.
For context, the second-highest scorer in the division is back on 10.
