MyBetBuddy’s EFL expert takes a look through the weekend’s fixtures and picks out his five best bets.
Accrington Stanley vs Sunderland – Sunderland Win @ 2.10
Accrington have only managed one win so far this season as they have had a poor start. Sunderland have beaten Stanley at the Wham Stadium already this campaign in the EFL Cup.
Jack Ross’ side seem to be playing with more freedom than they were in the previous campaign. A price of 2.10 is decent for an away win here.
Blackpool vs MK Dons – BTTS @ 1.62
Blackpool have been involved in a BTTS in four of their last five games in all competitions. The most recent of which was a dramatic 3-2 defeat at the hands of Coventry City.
Both teams have scored in all both of MK’s away matches so far this season. They have been heavily involved in goals since their return to League One with 19 in their six fixtures so far.
Gillingham vs Wycombe Wanderers – Wycombe Win @ 2.63
Wycombe currently sit top of League One thanks to a superb 3-1 victory over Lincoln City last weekend. The Chairboys lead the way not just in points but in shots per game and touches in the opponent’s box. They have been creating chances in every game so far. Unbeaten in the league, they are proving a tough nut to crack.
Gillingham have had a much slower start to the season. Their only league win was against Bolton Wanderers before they had many senior players registered. This will be a tough match for Steve Evans’ side so it is surprising that they go in as slight favourites at 2.50.
Peterborough United vs Rochdale – Peterborough Win @ 1.70
Posh have started to hit some form after what was a slow start for them. Four straight wins in all competitions has really lifted the mood around London Road after losing the first two games of the season.
Rochdale are an okay side but do not have the quality in personnel to match Peterborough. If the home team can carry on the momentum that they have created for themselves then they should be able to get the win here.
Southend United vs Fleetwood Town – Fleetwood Win @ 1.91
Southend have been nothing short of abysmal so far this season. Zero points from their opening six fixtures has left them in a serious state of disarray. Manager Kevin Bond has just left the club too, so they will most likely be without a permanent manager for this match.
Fleetwood are a good team with good players. They are currently fourth in the table and will fancy their chances of getting another win here.
