Weekend EFL tips for Saturday afternoon’s well-stocked fixture list. We’ve picked out three selections from across the three divisions, and we’ve included the reasons for each pick and a £40 sign-up bonus to spend on the action.
The first of our EFL Betting Tips comes from the Championship with Bristol City expected to get the better of relegation-threatened Wigan. The Robins were victorious in midweek, making it two wins on the bounce against sides in the top eight. They are back on home soil here, and they should be able to see off poor travellers Wigan.
The hosts are one of the streakiest sides in the division, and they often win several games in a row. With two victories already under their belt, I expect that run to continue here. The last time that Lee Johnson’s men won back-to-back games, they went on to win seven on the bounce, and the Latics don’t look like the side to halt their play-off push.
Wigan’s away form is atrocious, and they’ve lost five of their last six on their travels. They’ve been defeated in 15 of their 19 away games, and only Stoke, Bolton, Ipswich and Swansea have failed to take maximum points against them this season. They’ve also conceded at least two goals in four of their last five games on the road.
This should be a straightforward afternoon for Bristol City at Ashton Gate.
Although he didn’t make an immediate impact, the job that Wally Downes has done at AFC Wimbledon is absolutely magnificent. With quotes of 1/100 to be relegated at the beginning of February, the former Crazy Gang member has worked miracles with a limited squad, and they have given themselves a fighting chance of staying in League One.
Steve Seddon has been brilliant, Michael Folivi has been a bundle of energy, and Toby Sibbick has been brilliant during his 17 appearances for the club. Meanwhile, Joe Pigott and James Hansen have been amongst the goals recently.
They have taken 19 points from a possible 27, and this looks like another very winnable fixture.
Accrington are struggling, and John Coleman’s men are slowly being dragged into a relegation dogfight. They also played in midweek, losing 3-0 to Sunderland, and they won’t be as fresh as their hosts on Saturday afternoon. They’ve taken three points from a possible 18, and start the day just two points ahead of their opponents (albeit with two games in hand).
Accy haven’t scored in either of their last two visits to this ground, and they may struggle once again.
The second of our EFL Tips is AFC Wimbledon to Win.

Our third EFL betting tip is the shortest price of the trio, but looks a fairly straightforward one.
Swindon have been excellent under Richie Wellens, and although they occasionally throw in a duff result, they’ve been excellent in recent weeks, and they looked very sharp against high-flying Bury last weekend.
They’ve now scored seven goals in their last two League Two matches, and I expect their free-scoring approach to continue against struggling Yeovil.
The Glovers have parted way with Darren Way, but the change of boss couldn’t stop them slipping them to their fifth consecutive defeat. I’m always wary of backing against sides on long losing runs as they have to end somewhere, but next week’s hosting of out-of-form Crawley looks like a far more ideal fixture to get back on track.
Swindon won 3-0 at Huish Park earlier in the campaign, and I fully expect them to complete their double here.
