Good Friday EFL Multi
We have a Good Friday special: a $49* seven-leg leviathan!
Sheffield Utd v Nottingham Forest - 9:30pm
Our marathon multi kicks-off at Bramall Lane, where I’m backing Sheffield United to pile the pressure back onto Leeds United with a victory over hapless Nottingham Forest.
Chris Wilder’s men have just one win in four—a run which has seen them relinquish control of the promotion race to Leeds—but Forest are a mess under Martin O’Neill, losing their last three whilst playing dreadfully.
The Blades simply must win on Saturday, and I believe they will.
Coventry v Bradford - 10:00pm
Fresh from an incredible 5-4 victory against Sunderland last weekend, I’m backing Coventry to beat League One’s bottom side Bradford.
The Sky Blues have won just two of their last five at home, but Bradford have lost their last six matches, and I don’t think they’ll pose much of a challenge.
Exeter v Crawley - 10:00pm
Next, I’m backing Exeter—who are fighting to secure a League Two play-off spot—to beat a poor Crawley side.
The visitors have lost four of their last five in the league, and with safety all but assured after a 1-0 victory against a truly awful Yeovil side last weekend, Exeter might just have that extra incentive (and quality) needed for victory.
West Brom v Hull - 12:00am
Moving on to our 3pm kick-offs, I have West Brom to beat Hull at home.
Oddly, the Baggies’ excellent away form has deteriorated of late, though their form at The Hawthorns has markedly improved. Jimmy Shan’s side have beaten Swansea, Birmingham and Preston in their last three at home, scoring 10 in the process.
Hull, who still have very faint play-off hopes, have lost six of their last seven on the road (the one win coming against Ipswich), which is why I’m backing the Baggies.
Bolton v Aston Villa - 12:00am
This one is an absolute banker.
Rampant Aston Villa have won their last eight matches, while Bolton have lost eight of their last 10.
I’ll be utterly astounded if Villa don’t win this comfortably.
Swansea v Rotherham - 12:00am
Rotherham are absolutely fighting for their lives in the Championship, but I’m expecting them to fall to a defeat against Swansea.
Graham Potter’s men have been absolutely shocking away from home, yet five straight wins at The Liberty shows they should have enough to dispatch the spirited Millers.
Paul Warne’s men will battle to their last breath, but I ultimately expect their afternoon to end in defeat.
Crewe v Yeovil - 12:00am
Crewe Alexandra have won nine of their last 13 home matches in League Two, and I’m confident they’ll beat a Yeovil side who look destined for the drop.
The Glovers have lost 12 of their last 15 league matches—a run which includes one point from their last eight away games—so it’s looking unlikely they’ll get anything at all from Gresty Road.
