This weekend we welcome back the Championship after the FA Cup exploits and I'm going to find the best bets in the EFL and not often do I say this, but I think the bookies have the prices bang on in the Championship for this weekend. There is not one price that jumps out that makes you think that's too big and I must play it.
So this is a weekend where you have to have a bit of a search for value and possibly take a bit of a punt and the punt this weekend is Millwall 8/5 in places to win at home to hapless Coventry City.
Now Millwall have not been great this season, hence the departure of Gary Rowett fairly recently with one win in eight games and then they travel before the international break to Sheffield Wednesday with a new man in the dugout.
Former Everton and Chelsea assistant boss Joe Edwards, who then delivered the Lions biggest away victory in the Championship in 22 years, smashing the Owls 4-0 and this can only give Millwall newly found confidence and a boost going into a game against this seriously out of form Coventry.
One point from their last 15 available and four defeats in five on their travels. So yeah, Millwall 8/5 in places. Thank you very much.
Now into League One we head and I'm looking at the all conquering Bolton Wanderers. Nine wins in their last ten games in all competitions to make it 10 in 11 at home to a struggling Exeter.
They are two to one on to win so you have to look further for value and we will do just that.
Exeter have lost their last. Four away games. And in those games they have scored one and conceded 12. So clearly a problem in terms of defensive issues and now they travel to one of their best sides in the league, So Bolton, to win and goals.
Now the handicap market is the best market for value in this one. Bolton to win -1 on the handicap is 6/4 and Bolton to win -2 is 17/5 in places. Both are a play.
And in League Two, there were no prices jumped out at me in the Championship. There is one in League 2 that I am pouncing on immediately as I think they will be sure to come kick off on Saturday.
So say hello to Crewe at 11/10 to win at home to Doncaster Rovers.
Honestly the home side should be shades of odds on to win this game – Crewe in all competitions have won six of the last eight games and at home and in League Two they have won seven of their last 10.
Only the league leaders Stockport County have won at Crewe and Doncaster are clearly not Stockport County, both in name and form. Doncaster have played eight away games this season in League 2 and have lost six of them. Sometimes you have to go hunting for value and sometimes it's staring you full on in the face like crew 11/10 to win at home to Doncaster. Take it!
Whatever your bets are this weekend in the Championship. League One, League Two and in football and sports in general, please always gamble responsibly.
