Another Saturday of EFL action promises to deliver plenty of excitement, and we’re hoping to deliver plenty of profit with this 7/1 treble on the standard match result couple.
We’ve picked three clubs, two from the Championship and one from League One, to pick up important home wins. If they do, a £10 stake will become a cool £80 return.
That’s gotta be worth a punt!
Middlesbrough v QPR
Without quite hitting their best just yet, Middlesbrough have enjoyed a decent start to the season under Garry Monk and remain unbeaten at the Riverside with seven points from a possible nine. While visiting QPR will put up a test, we’d expect the hosts to seal another victory here.
Boro can look to Britt Assombalonga, Patrick Bamford, and Ashley Fletcher for inspiration in the final third while Darren Randolph and his defence have looked particularly solid during the early parts of the season too. If they play to their potential, they should enjoy great productivity all over the pitch.
QPR , meanwhile, have failed to win any of their first three away games and could be in for another difficult afternoon in spite of the obvious quality that Ian Holloway’s men boast. The R’s certainly know how to score goals, but should be concerned with the frequency in which they concede. Not least because it could be their undoing here.
Middlesbrough will be made to work for their win, but we’re backing them to pass the test.
Sheffield United v Norwich City
Staying in the Championship, newly promoted Sheffield United have enjoyed a fantastic start to the season and enter this weekend’s action sitting pretty in third. A clash against an out-of-form Norwich should be the perfect chance to keep up their perfect home record.
The Blades have won four league matches on the spin and Chris Wilder’s men are playing with extreme confidence and cohesion right now. The goals of Billy Sharp and Clayton Donaldson are already proving to be vital, and they should be fancied for more as they welcome the Canaries to Bramall Lane.
Conversely, Norwich have struggled for goals, scoring just once in their last three. Daniel Farke’s squad does have a lot of talent, but they are yet to find their form, and that could be a huge problem against strong opposition.
Given the momentum that United boast right now, they should have enough to grab three points.
Wigan Athletic v Bristol Rovers
In League One, Wigan would have liked a slightly better start to the campaign but can still be relatively pleased with a return of 13 points from six matches. Still, if they want to keep themselves among the early frontrunners, a win over Bristol Rovers is vital.
The Latics have only played twice at the DW so far, but a return of five goals and four points is positive. Ivan Toney and Gavin Massey have been among the goals too while it’s only a matter of time before Will Grigg reignites his scoring form. Considering the visitors have lost two of their three away games, the impetus should be with the hosts.
Rovers are a decent side, but are conceding at a very alarming rate with 15 conceded in just seven matches. While they have notched 12 of their own, those defensive frailties could be the deciding factor as they head to Lancashire.
Let’s just hope our two Championship selections roll in too.
