Championship Play-Off Betting Tips

Football LeagueMark Rawlinson

There are a few more Football League play-off semi-finals over the next couple of days, with QPR v Wigan from the Championship and the re-arranged York City v Fleetwood Town game.

Then on Tuesday it’s the concluding leg from the League One tie between Leyton orient v Peterborough United.

QPR v Wigan Athletic Betting Tips

There was nothing to pick between the two sides in the first leg back on Friday and they head into Monday night’s second leg locked at 0-0 on aggregate.

There have been only one goal scored in the three meetings between the two sides this season, and last week’s meeting continued that trend.

There is pressure on Harry Redknapp’s big spenders QPR, with Nico Kranjcar and Kevin Doyle hoping to start after coming off the bench in Friday’s game.

Wigan, bidding for a second appearance at Wembley this season after reaching the FA Cup semi-finals, have serious concerns over top scorer Nick Powell who is struggling with a hamstring injury.

QPR are favourites, with Bet Victor offering the best odds of 11/8 whilst Coral price Wigan at 13/5.

BET OF THE DAY: I’d tip less than 1.5 goals at 21/10 with Bet Victor.

Catch the action live from 7:45pm on Sky Sports 1.

York City v Fleetwood Town Betting Tips

Also on Monday night is the re-arranged League Two play-off first leg between York and Fleetwood. Heavy rain across North Yorkshire caused the pitch at Bootham Crescent to be waterlogged on Saturday and the match was postponed.

The Minstermen were caught up in the relegation dog-fight before Christmas but just two defeats in the New Year have seen Nigel Worthinghton’s side claim an unlikely play-off spot as they bid for back-to-back promotions.

Fleetwood meanwhile are on the hunt for their sixth promotion in nine seasons as their race up the divisions continue. The extra 48 hours off will have given injury doubts Conor McLaughlin and Jamie Matt the chance to feature on Monday night.

York are 6/4 favourites with William Hill and there is now greater value on a Fleetwood win with with Bet 365 pricing them at 23/10.

The game is live on Sky Sports 2 from 7:45pm.

Leyton Orient v Peterborough United Betting Tips

On Tuesday night it’s all to play for in the second leg of the League One play-off semi-final between Leyton Orient and Peterborough United, with the pair locked at 1-1 after the first leg.

Peterborough’s talisman Britt Assombalonga netted his 24th goal of the season to put the hosts in front but Moses Odubajo’s second half effort gives Russell Slade’s side the slight advantage as hosts in the second leg.

Hosts Leyton Orient are unbeaten in three heading into the clash whilst Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough have not lost in four. Both sides have not reported any injury concerns ahead of the second leg and could field unchanged sides.

Peterborough won the regular league meeting between the sides at The Matchroom Stadium 2-1 back in February and there’s good value on them winning the second leg within 90 minutes – 13/5 with Bet Victor. Orient are 6/5 favourites with Ladbrokes.

Watch the match live on Sky Sport 1 from 7:45pm.
