WHEN you read my top tips you'll see I'm on Bolton at a biggest 11-4 with bet365 away to Leicester – so I'm pleased Milesey agrees with my verdict.

Bolton have won three in a row to edge into a play-off spot and on current form should finish fourth above Crystal Palace and Brighton.

Leicester have gone off the boil at the wrong time and are without a win in six. Defeat here, combined with a Nottingham Forest win at Middlesbrough, will leave them with a mountain to climb.

It's worth bearing in mind that this is almost a cup final for Leicester but Bolton shouldn't be
11-4 – it's too big. You could play it safer and take Bolton on the double chance.

I'm also with Milesey on Ipswich to beat Palace on a night of massive games in the Championship. Here are Milesey's thoughts on two of the biggest matches as well as one from League One.

Ipswich 2.8 v Crystal Palace 2.8; The Draw 3.5

The match odds market is finding it difficult to split these two but with home advantage I'm of the opinion that Ipswich should be favourites, especially as they are the club in better form.

True, the Tractor Boys lost on home soil on Saturday, but there's no disgrace in losing by the odd goal to promotion-chasing Hull.

And by all accounts Mick McCarthy's men played well in that game. Prior to Saturday Ipswich had lost just one game in eight and had won their last three games at Portman Road without conceding a goal against decent outfits Bolton, Leeds and Leicester.

In contrast Palace aren't in good form and have gone from real contenders for automatic promotion to a sitting duck as a club to overtake in the play-off places.

Ian Holloway's men have failed to score a single goal in their last four games, losing heavily to Brighton and Birmingham, going down to an out-of-form Blackpool side, and failing to beat Barnsley on home soil.

Perhaps just as worrying as their current form is the fact the Eagles have won just one away game in the last four months. Ipswich have to be the call.

Recommended Bet: Back Ipswich to win @ 2.8

Leicester 2.12 v Bolton 3.85; The Draw 3.65

Madness! That's the only way I can describe the odds here. I just don't understand why Leicester are clear favourites to win this game. In fact I would have priced this game up exactly as the above game is, 2.8 each side. So to see Bolton available to back at 3.85 appears to be incredible value. Allow me to paint the picture.

The Foxes have failed to win any of their last nine league games and their only victory in 14 league and cup games was at home to a Blackburn side who were in dire form at the time. Nigel Pearson's men have lost to bottom-half clubs Millwall and Sheffield Wednesday in two of their last three home games and yet are strong favourites to beat the division's most in-form club.

Bolton are in superb form at present, winning eight of their last 10 league games, and aren't conceding many goals either. True, the best of their form has been on home soil which probably goes some way to explaining their huge odds tonight, but purely and simply on current form – one of the division's most out of form clubs against the division's most in-form club – the Trotters have to be backed.

Recommended Bet: Back Bolton to win @ 3.85

Colchester v MK Dons

MK Dons’ hopes of staging a late charge for the play-offs took a dent on Saturday as they slipped to a 2-0 defeat to Leyton Orient.

The Dons had improved their form to the point where four wins, a draw and one defeat saw them to within touching distance of the top six.

However, after the loss to fellow play-off chasing club Orient, the Dons now lie four points adrift with three games left.

There is still a realistic chance they could creep into the top six with a number of clubs slipping up as we inch towards the season’s finish line but Karl Robinson will need to ensure his men aren’t one of those making costly mistakes.

They will see Tuesday night’s clash with Colchester as a good opportunity to pick up three points with the Us sitting 19th in the League One table.

MK Dons win @ 2.36

Leagues Tipped:

    All 3 of your tips above look like they have goals in the games. I fancy BTTS in all of them plus Arsenal v Everton makes a nice 4-fold at almost 10/1

  2. Stephen Miller 11 years ago

    £5 on Derby-Ipswich-Mk Dons-Nancy = £265

  3. ellis 11 years ago

    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Ellis, what happened?

    • Bruce 11 years ago

      Are you joking?
      Leicester have struggled but on paper are a much better team than Bolton
      Had Leicester 5/6 doubled with Blackburn 7/5
      £120 stake
      £528 returned
      ps still worried about Craig A in semis!

    • Milesey 11 years ago

      I think your Joking………. anyway i had correct score Bayern 6 – 1, had 30p on and returned 8000000000000


    • Mr Fixit 11 years ago

      Bruce, on current form Bolton were the better team. But as I’ve said you can’t ever rely on a Championship result, it’s so tight in there.

    • Bryan 11 years ago

      Bruce, that’s all well and good when the match is finished but i’m struggling to find the post where you actually tipped them before the match. It’s possible i’ve simply missed it….
