Bournemouth, Brentford, Barnsley and Swansea begin their quest to land the richest prize in club football on Monday as they vie for a place at the top table of English football.
The Bees are the 6/4 favourites with Bet365 to claim promotions with Monday's opponents Bournemouth next in line at 12/5. The other two semi-finalists, Barnsley and Swansea are 7/2 and 9/2 respectively.
The action kicks-off at the Vitality Stadium where Mark Walker likes the look of the 7/4 available on the Cherries to nick a first leg lead over Brentford. They'll need to keep the Championship's record scorer Ivan Toney quiet but Mark reckons Bournemouth's Arnaut Danjuma could be best value to get on the scoresheet.
In Scotland, Edinburgh City host Dumbarton in the first leg of the League One Play-off. The capital club are aiming to make it to the third tier of Scottish football for the first time in their history but it could be a cagey affair at Borough Briggs and SlipsTips is taking a cautious approach when it comes to his BetBuilder tip for the match.
SlipsTips' Cards Double won comfortably in Scotland on Sunday thanks to a slew of yellows in the two relegation battles while new addition to the site, Greg MacLean, continued his brilliant start as our featured Bet of the Day tipster with his third win in a row thanks to goals for Sassuolo and a win for Nantes. Well done Guys!
La Liga Drama
It was an incredible day of action in Spain as the race for the title reduced to just two teams with one round of fixtures to play.
Atletico Madrid were minutes away from throwing the season away but scored two goals in the last eight minutes to come from behind and win which keeps them two points ahead of city rivals Real who notched a 1-0 win at Athletic Bilbao. Barca dropped out of contention with a 2-1 defeat at home to Celta Vigo.
Most notable was the 35 goals scored so that's worth keeping an eye out for next week when the season reches it's climax, as was the five red cards.
