League One football tips for the final weekend of the season. We’ve picked out three selections from across the third tier, and we’ve included the reasons for each pick and a £30 sign-up bonus to spend on the action.
Charlton have enjoyed an outstanding season, and Lee Bowyer’s side can sit back and look forward to the play-offs. The Addicks may opt to rest a few key performers here, but they still have plenty of class in their squad, and I believe that the former Leeds midfielder will be keen to take some momentum into the end-of-season fixtures.
Rochdale are on the beach, Brian Barry Murphy has successfully guided the side to safety, with improved defensive resolve, and he is surely favourite for the job on a full-time basis.
They’ve kept four clean sheets in five coming into this tie, but they haven’t come up against an attack anywhere near as prolific as Charltons.
It’s always a difficult task for punters at this time of the season, but with Charlton at 3/4 at the time of writing, the South Londoners are hard to ignore. Their home form has been nothing short of sensational this campaign, and they will surely want to end the regular season on a high?
No side wants to go into the play-offs off the back of a defeat, and I think Charlton will be very much the side to avoid over the next couple of weeks. They seem to have found the perfect balance, and haven’t been overtly affected by the loss of Karlan Grant to Huddersfield.
This game might be tight, and there won’t be much between the sides, but I expect Charlton to edge this encounter, and they are the first of our EFL betting tips for Saturday.

Peterborough’s unexpected win at Pompey in midweek means that Doncaster have to win this game if they want to preserve their position in the play-offs. Grant McCann’s side have had a superb season, but they’ve just started to stumbled towards the finish line, and they’ve conceded some silly goals along the way.
A 2-1 home defeat to Accrington was certainly not in the script, and they were unable to beat Oxford at the weekend. Admittedly, the yellows are in terrific form, and it proved to be a creditable 2-2 draw with Karl Robinson’s men.
The South Yorkshire outfit have kept just one clean sheet in their last four home matches, which came against struggling Plymouth. Since that shutout, they’ve conceded six times, and Coventry are very lively in the final third.
Darren Ferguson will be hoping that Mark Robins’ side can do him a huge favour here, and they are certainly likely to make things tough for Donny. Cov won 5-4 at the Stadium of Light recently, and were arguably the better side for large parts of their 2-1 loss at Pompey.
They have a triumvirate of young attacking talent with Jordy Hiwula and Bright Enobakhare starring in recent weeks. They can also call upon Connor Chaplin if required.
The Sky Blues have scored eleven times in their last five away games, and they are not likely to sit back, and hand the initiative to their hosts.
Both Teams to Score? Yes landed when they met earlier in the campaign, and it is the second of our League One betting tips for Saturday.
We’re looking at the game between Luton and Oxford for our final EFL betting tip. The Hatters are up, they’ve been promoted to the Championship, and the celebrations will have ensued following Pompey’s loss at home to Peterborough on Tuesday night.
They’ve been far from convincing in recent weeks, and lost 2-1 at Burton last weekend. Mick Harford’s side also dropped points here to AFC Wimbledon ten days ago, and this will be a tough game for the side, regardless of how long their celebrations lasted.
Oxford have hit form, and propelled themselves into the top half of the League One table. The Yellows have been struggling all season, but they’ve gathered momentum at just the right time, and things look potentially rosy ahead of next season.
Robinson’s men have won their last three away games, taking maximum points of Coventry, Shrewsbury and Walsall, and although this will be tougher than any of those games, it’s certainly a fixture in which they can cause problems for their Championship-bound hosts.
Since New Years Day, they’ve lost just one away game by a margin of more than a single goal, and I think they can potentially get something from this tie. To be on the safe side, we’ll take +2 on the handicap. If they lose by a single goal, you will still be paid out.
