Football League Acca – 29th & 30th January

We were so close last week to landing a win of over £600, with just the Chelsea v Spurs game letting us down. And while a 2-0 win for Chelsea sounds a long way from the draw I’d gone for, I felt that Harry Kane’s goal, which would have been the opener, was so harshly ruled out that it beggared belief.

If that had stood, then I reckon I’d have been home and hosed and I think this is a good example here of how sometimes you can do all the work and make great tips, but something external, such as the referee or VAR, can scupper your chances.

All my other tips panned out pretty much on the money though which is a positive to take from it as we move into this strange old week in the season.

What we have this week is the Premier League’s mid-season break. One week with no games to be played in the EPL. It kind of makes a mockery of that ridiculous week in between Xmas and New Year when teams had to play 2 games in 3 days in many cases. Why not use this weekend for that set of games so the festive period wasn’t so busy?

Anyway, the EPL don’t do logic it seems and so we have this weekend where our attention is instead going to shift to the Football League and I am going right down the divisions from the Championship to League Two for my picks this week.

I am hoping more games to pick from in these divisions means that there will be more chance of landing a win, but experience has taught me that the difference in ability between teams in these divisions is so slight at times, that they can be tricky.

Still, I’m willing to give it a go and I have put together this fourfold from the tips I’ve outlined below.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 29th January

Luton Town v Blackburn Rovers – Draw

Luton have been in good form of late, winning four of their last five games and they have drawn and beaten two of the top three in the Championship in that run. Blackburn will certainly be wary of this having lost two of their last three games, although they still sit in second in the Championship table. Ben Brereton-Diaz, the Chilean striker, has been a key man for Rovers scoring 20 goals this season in the league and I fancy him to grab a goal here today too, but the way Luton have been playing, especially against the top teams in the division, means that I can’t quite get fully behind Blackburn landing the win here and instead, I am opting for the draw.

Middlesbrough v Coventry City – Home Win

Just two points separate these team in the league and they lie 8th and 9th in the table respectively, with Middlesbrough holding the points advantage, although Coventry have a game in hand. Since Chris Wilder came in, Boro’s results have improved somewhat and their loss last weekend to Barnsley was their first in nine games. Coventry though are a very solid team and Mark Robins has done a sensational job guiding them through the divisions. Both teams have potential matchwinners in the likes of Coventry’s Matt Godden or Viktor Gyokeres, while Boro can call on on loan duo Aaron Connolly and Andras Sporar. This will be a very close one, but I think Boro will edge it by a single goal.

Sheffield Wednesday v Ipswich Town – Draw

Ipswich are 8th in League One, Wednesday are 9th and there was a time not so long ago that this game would have been a Premier League clash. Both teams have fallen on harder times since then tough and both are seeking a return to the Championships, although given how far they are behind the top teams in League One, the playoffs look to be their best bet. Ipswich have slightly the better form at the moment, but the Owls are at home and with Wednesday drawing a division high 10 games this season, and Ipswich 8 and add to that how well-matched the teams are, I think a draw is the sensible and good value option here.

Tranmere Rovers v Forest Green Rovers – Home Win

The top two in League Two clash at Prenton Park with the home side seeking to cut the gap to the league leaders to four points, However, beating Forest Green has not been easy this season as they have lost just twice in a very evenly matched division. They also have two of the best goalscoring strikers in this league too in Matthew Stevens and Jamille Matt. There is little love lost between these two teams who have become rivals due to a number of promotion battles in recent times, plus two playoff encounters. Rovers though are in great form with 9 wins in their last 10 EPL games, drawing the other and at home against a team they held 0-0 on the road, I am backing the home side to pick up a trademark 1-0 win.
