A Banker Treble Saturday 28th April – Saints A Cert To Crush Coventry
It’s the last day of the season in The Championship and leagues below, and while many games taking place mean nothing, and players are already thinking of their summer holidays, Southampton will want to make promotion a certainty by finishing their season in style with a win over already relegated side Coventry. Here are my best 3 match odds selections for the weekend, combined to make a banker treble.

Southampton v Coventry 12.30pm BBC1
Southampton need a draw here to guarantee automatic promotion into the Premier League, but it’s very hard to see anything other than a convincing home win when they take on dire Coventry who were relegated last week with a game to spare.
Coventry will be trying to go out in style, but they just don’t have the quality to match Southampton in any department. The Sky Blues have managed just 1 away win this season, with a paltry 13 goals scored in 22 games.
In contrast, Southampton have the best goal difference in the league (+35) and are the divisions top home scorers with 45 goals in 22 games.
Coventry will be trying to go out with a bang, yes, but all I can see this doing is leaving themselves even more vulnerable to a Saints onslaught.
Rochdale v MK Dons 3.00pm
Rochdale have known their fate for a few weeks now, and will be back in League 2 again next season. MK Dons are assured of a play off spot, but a win would give them a plum draw against Huddersfield, who are really out of form at present.
Milton Keynes have done some of their best work on their travels this season, and are on a winning streak of 3 games without a single goal conceded; brushing aside Tranmere(3-0), Scunthorpe(3-0) and Sheffield United(1-0).
Rochdale’s only win in their last 7 games has been against Exeter, who will also be joining them in League 2 next season, and it’s hard to see them getting anything out of this game but a loss.
West Ham v Hull City 12.30pm Sky Sports 2
West Ham will be giving it everything to win here in the hope that Southampton somehow slip up against Coventry, and look a good bet to beat Hull at Upton Park on Saturday lunchtime.
The Hammers have lost just 1 of their last 17 games, and the way they performed in their latest win against Leicester City earlier in the week suggests that Hull are in for a rough ride.
It’s out of the Hammers hands if they grab the runners up spot, but they will be doing all they can in their plight to get back to the Premier League, and Hull shouldn’t be able to stop them.
MK Dons 5/6
West Ham 1/2
