Odds listed are best odds available as at 2pm November 25th 2021. Odds may now differ.
Selection 1: Bournemouth v Coventry City – Under 2.5 goals
Bournemouth were held to a 1-1 draw at Millwall in midweek, meaning Scott Parker’s side have won just one of their previous four games.
The Cherries appear to enjoy attacking opponents in transition, having taken apart Swansea in a 4-0 victory earlier this month, but they have struggled to break down more compact setups.
The Dorset outfit are missing some depth in certain areas and while they could be helped by the return from injury of midfielder Phillip Billing, they could find themselves in another low-scoring game against Coventry.
Selection 2: Swansea City v Reading – Swansea to win
Swansea are enjoying a progressive season so far under Russ Martin.
In Tuesday’s 2-0 victory at Barnsley, the Swans had 80% possession – which must be one of the highest figures ever for a Championship game – and the fact both goals came in the second half shows they can wear opponents out.
The passing and movement from this team is excellent, which is ideal for feeding a front-three of weedy technician Jamie Paterson, strong creator Olivier Ntcham and left-footed finisher Joel Piroe, who can be deadly when they combine well.
While Swansea have hope of closing the four-point gap to the Play-Offs, Reading are in jeopardy.
The Royals have won one of their last seven league games and have had a six-point deduction, which means Veljko Paunovic’s side are a mere two points above the drop zone.
Selection 3: Luton Town v Cardiff City – Luton to win
The last three games have proved frustrating for Luton and Nathan Jones.
The Hatters have enjoyed arguably the better of the play against Stoke, QPR and Nottingham Forest, but have just one point to show for their efforts, having failed to find the net in any of those encounters.
Jones is an excellent manager: his drive, coaching capabilities and tactical nous mean the Bedfordshire outfit can produce very effective patterns of play with a relatively limited group of players.
When Luton do get into dangerous areas, the quality of their final ball can at times let them down, but they should create enough openings in this one to cause problems for Cardiff, who look likely relegation candidates despite a brief resurgence under Steve Morison.
Selection 4: Peterborough United v Barnsley – Under 0.5 goals
Saturday’s game at London Road looks a key clash in the Championship relegation dogfight, with both sides licking their wounds following a heavy defeat on Wednesday.
Peterborough were hammered 4-0 at Blackburn and Darren Ferguson lamented his side’s defending, with the Scot likely to prioritize tightening up in the two days of training he has had to prepare for this match.
Barnsley, meanwhile, did not so much as lay a glove on Swansea in midweek, falling to a 2-0 defeat with just 20% possession.
Striker Devante Cole and left-back Jordan Williams, playing on his unnatural side, were the two players who came away from that match with any credit.
Selection 5: Bolton Wanderers v Cheltenham Town – Bolton to win
Any fears of a relegation battle for Bolton this season have been promptly assuaged.
Ian Evatt’s side have won two of their last three games, most recently defeating Doncaster 3-0 in a convincing, high-quality display: even if they were helped by facing one of the worst teams in the league who had 10-men for 47 minutes.
It is not a given that the Trotters will repeat those levels against stronger opposition, without the suspended Dapo Afolayan, but each of their goals came from excellent possession play.
Alongside more obvious star performers like uncompromising centre-back Ricardo Santos, left-back all-rounder Declan John and classy midfielder Kieran Lee is left-back Liam Gordon, who earnt man-of-the-match for his attacking rampages.
Cheltenham are not 10th for no reason – securing back-to-back league wins over Shrewsbury and Gillingham was a great achievement for Michael Duff’s side – but it’s hard to see the Robins staying in the top half for too much longer.
Selection 6: Oxford United v Rotherham United – Rotherham to win
Rotherham leapfrogged Plymouth Argyle in midweek to go top of League One with a 2-0 win at Ipswich.
It’s hard to argue against the Millers having not only the strongest side in the division, but also the strongest squad: in every position, they seem to have two players whom they could swap around without ever truly experiencing a drop in quality.
In midfield, meanwhile, ball-carrier Ben Wiles continues his eye-catching rise: the academy graduate’s talent was obvious when he came into the team three years ago, but this season he has added an extra layer of physicality to his game – we could be looking at a future Premier League player.
Oxford were also victorious in midweek, defeating Fleetwood 3-1, but they were without numerous first team players due to a combination of injuries, suspensions and self-isolation, so they could come unstuck against stronger opposition.
Selection 7: Lincoln City v Accrington Stanley – Lincoln to win
Accrington Stanley suffered a humiliating 4-0 mauling by Burton Albion in midweek.
In many ways, the scoreline was not the most embarrassing aspect of the night for Accy, so much as the manner in which they conceded the goals, effectively gifting three of them to the opposition.
The result means John Coleman’s side have conceded a whopping 36 league goals this season, the most in the division, averaging exactly two per game.
Lincoln are hoping to bounce back from a bad defeat themselves, having lost 3-0 in midweek to an excellent Portsmouth side, but the Imps can bounce back.
If intelligent right-back Regan Poole, technical forward Chris Maguire and speedster Hakeeb Adelakun link up on the right as they are capable of, they could unhinge Stanley.
A stalwart for the East Lancashire club, 32-year-old Sean McConville, can struggle with the physical demands of playing left wing-back, a problem exacerbated by the struggles left-sided defender Yeboah Amankwaah – on loan from Man City – has endured since stepping up to senior football.
Selection 8: Shrewsbury Town v Charlton Athletic – Charlton to win
Johnnie Jackson has enjoyed a dream stint as caretaker manager of Charlton, accruing 14 points from his first six games in charge.
In that timeframe, only Portsmouth have matched their return and because of Jackson’s work, the Londoners – who may have been fearing a dogfight a month ago – can now look forward to the rest of their season with hope and optimism.
Shrewsbury, meanwhile, look prime relegation candidates, having lost 10 of their 18 league games: although they did avoid an 11th with 10-men at home to Sunderland in midweek, thanks to Daniel Udoh’s leveller.
Selection 9: Rochdale v Exeter City – Both Teams To Score
Tuesday brought a night of frustration for Rochdale, when Robbie Stockdale’s side had to settle for a point against Stevenage, despite controlled the game for long periods.
The Dale have not always been as clinical as they want to be this season, which is why they are 13th rather than in the Play-Off places, but the good thing is that they are creating chances.
In wing-backs Corey O’Keefe and Jimmy Keohane, midfield controllers Liam Kelly and Aaron Morley, wide forward Alex Newby and physical front-man Jake Beesley, the Lancashire outfit have the means to ask questions of their opponents.
Exeter are a dangerous side, too: with creative forward Matt Jay in sumptuous form, the Grecians have not failed to find the net in any of their last 15 games in all competitions.
Selection 10: Salford City v Oldham Athletic – Salford to win
Salford are undoubtedly underachieving this season.
With the investment that has gone into the club in recent years, the Ammies are expecting to be in the top seven, yet Gary Bowyer’s side currently find themselves eight points shy in 16th.
Nonetheless, a three-game unbeaten streak offers hope that Salford can close that gap, especially after they equalized in the 95th minute at Bristol Rovers through Brandon Thomas-Asante – despite playing the closing stages with nine men.
Thomas-Asante is one of the strongest dribblers in League Two and, if anyone can inspire a resurgence into Play-Off contention for Salford, it’s him.
Oldham, meanwhile, are very much in a dogfight and have sacked Keith Curle as manager this week, so Selim Benachour will step up from the academy to be interim head coach.

What is an EFL Acca?
An EFL Acca is a type of betting that involves combining several selections across different matches with one single stake. An acca or accumulator usually has at least four selections but it can include many many more. An EFL acca is one such bet that only involves matches from the EFL or English Football League, the second to the fourth tiers of English football. The benefits of an EFL acca are that the odds can be massive with a very small stake as the odds for all selections are multiplied together. Every pick needs to win or your EFL acca will lose.
