The Easter weekend is a busy one for us punters AND if you're a footballer in the lower leagues in England.

Sunday's Easter eggs will have to go on hold for teams in the Championship and below, as they follow up Friday's round of fixtures with another full card on Monday.

So Good Friday feels a bit like a Saturday which is a welcome restart to club football after a long week of international matches.

Norwich (at Preston) and Watford (at home to Sheffield Wed) look the pick of the bunch in the Championship. The double pays just short of 6/4.

Further down the leagues Sunderland look generously priced at 19/20 to keep their excellent form going with a win at home to Oxford. Likewise Bolton in League Two have been on a brilliant run and are 4/6 to win at home to Colchester who have the worst away record in the division.

In Scotland there's the Highland Derby on Friday night as Ross County welcome Inverness Caley Thistle to Dingwall. Both sides would probably prefer the three points than a cup win given the positions they're in in their respective leagues.

County are just two points off the bottom in the Premiership while Caley are one of five teams chasing three play-off places in the Championship. That aside neither will want to hand bragging rights to their opponents and this fixture often serves up goals. Eight of the last 10 have featured Over 2.5 goals (1/1 Bet365) the same number that have seen BTTS (10/11).

There's four live matches from England and Scotland on Friday and we've got them covered with in-depth match prviews as well as a head-start on some of Saturday's big games.

    One for the weekend to stick in your accums.

    Leicester v Man city.
    Sat 17.30
    Gundogan 1+ shot on target 1/1 wirh skybet
    I was taking this bet few months ago before odds started to tumble but back to evens here so back on the bandwagon.
    Also on right foot shot on target at 11/8. Hope he starts.

    Another couple.
    Fri 3pm
    Aldershot v Stockport – stockport -1 corner handicap 1/1
    Think everyone knows about stockport and their corners. They also 5/6 to hit 6 which pretty doable given their stats. (Greg started me on this and have been on them most weeks since, so this is his thunder)

    Japan J league
    Sat 0600
    Consodole Saporro 6+ corners 10/11 ( average 8 in 1st 3 away matches) or can take 10+ match corners at 1/1 looks to be fair few corners in their matches so far)

    Also for a lonshot on Newcastle v Spurs on Sunday if Bale plays. (Skybet)
    Kane to assist Bale and Bale to assist Kane 40/1
    Kane to assist a goal 21/10
    Bale to assist a goal 5/2
    Recent stats pretty good for the latter 2

    Good luck👍

    Once again Friday night brings us action from the Dutch second tier and I’ve picked 2 games I like the look of. First one is a game I’m expecting plenty of goals in and the other is one of the leagues form sides hosting a side who’s form is the complete opposite of good.

    Jong Ajax vs NAC Breda
    Over 2.5 goals

    MVV vs FC Eindhoven
    MVV to win

    Double pays
    2.3/1 (William Hill)

    Reasoning on both games below 👇🏼

    • GregMacLean4 1 month ago

      Jong Ajax vs NAC Breda
      Eerste Divisie 🇳🇱
      Friday 3rd April, 19:00 ⏰

      Ajax have scored in 13 of their 15 home games scoring 23 goals.
      Ajax have conceded in all but one of their 15 home games conceding 30 goals.
      Over 2.5 goals has landed in 10 of Ajax’s 15 home games so far this season.

      NAC have scored in 11 of their 15 away games scoring 26 goals.
      NAC have conceded in 10 of their 15 away games including their last 6 in a row conceding 9 goals in those games.
      Over 2.5 goals has landed in 7 of their 15 away games including their last 4 in a row.

      The best game for goals in the Dutch second tier tonight is this one. No side has seen more games go over the 2.5 goal barrier more than Ajax (83% of their 30 games) and with NAC Breda’s last 9 games all going over 2.5 goals, I can see the trend continuing tonight. All 7 of these 2 sides head to heads have all went over 2.5 goals including the earlier meeting in the season.

      MVV vs FC Eindhoven
      Eerste Divisie 🇳🇱
      Friday 3rd April, 19:00 ⏰

      MVV have won 7 of their 15 home games so far this season.
      MVV have won their last 5 home games in a row.
      MVV have won 5 of their last 6 league games and 6 of their last 8.

      Eindhoven have only won 3 of their 15 away games this season losing 8.
      Eindhoven are winless in their last 9 away games losing 5 of their last 6.
      Eindhoven are winless in their last 14 league games losing 9 of them.

      Two sides here in contrasting form as MVV host Eindhoven. MVV are one of the leagues form sides and can potentially jump 4 places into 9th with a 6th home win in a row. Eindhoven on the other are in 16th and on a terrible run of form without a win in 14 games. With such contrasting form I’m happy to take the odds against on the MVV win.

    On Betfair, Scottie Scheffler is mispriced at 17/10 for a top 10 finish in the Texas Open (he’s 13/10 for top 5 finish). It will probably change soon so get on asap if you read this on time. He’s currently tied 7th after the 1st round.

    Watford win/o1.5tgs
    10/11 bet 365 NAP

    Bolton win/o1.5tgs
    21/20 bet 365 NB

    Watford have the best home record in the championship averaging 2 goals a game and on the back of 5 wins in a row. Contrastingly sheff weds have lost 5 of their last 6 away games and have only managed 2 clean sheets away from home all season in the league- back in round 1 and round 5.
    Bolton come into today’s match the form side in league 2, wether it be over the last 5/10/15/20/25 or 30 games. A poor start to the season meant they where chasing their tail from the off but recently they have picked up 12 wins and 2 draws in 14 games and I fancy them to have too much for a Colchester side with the worst away record in the division.
