EFL Tips: Exeter The Banker In This 23/1 Four-Fold!

EFL Tips: Exeter The Banker In This 23/1 Four-Fold!

Gaz is back with his views on this weekend’s EFL action and fancies this four-fold to be fruitful.

Burton v Port Vale – Sat 20th Aug 15:00 BST

  • Burton have been quite a regular feature in this column thus far and with good reason. The Brewers have picked up just one point in their first 4 league matches and sit bottom of the table at this early stage.
  • Last weekend’s 4-4 draw was the only positive for Hasselbaink’s men but having been 3-0 ahead it probably doesn’t feel that way.
  • Newly promoted Port Vale have struggled slightly since their opening day win over Fleetwood, losing 2 and drawing the other.
  • The performances for Vale have been good despite not putting many points on the board and I fancy them to get back on track here.

Crawley v AFC Wimbledon – Sat 20th Aug 15:00 BST

  • Wimbledon have enjoyed a solid start to the campaign with Tuesday’s 5-2 defeat at the hands of Mansfield being their first league loss of the season. Chris Gunter’s sending off just before half-time didn’t help their cause against a strong Mansfield outfit.
  • Prior to that mid-week defeat The Wombles were solid rather than flashy but have kept the points total ticking over.
  • Crawley failed to score in their first 3 games and despite breaking that duck in mid-week versus Northampton, they still came out on the wrong end of a 2-3 scoreline.
  • Wimbledon’s resilience should shine through here and 2/1 looks like a juicy price.

Exeter v Cheltenham – Sat 20th Aug 15:00 BST

  • Exeter featured in my mid-week accumulator and got the job done with ease coming out the victors in a 3-1 scoreline.
  • The Grecians are 2/2 at St James’ Park this season scoring 7 and conceding just 1 goal.
  • Cheltenham picked up their first point on Tuesday when holding Fleetwood to a nil nil draw. It’s now 4 games in all competitions since they’ve scored and this looks like a tough task.
  • All things considered a home win sticks out as a banker for the weekend.

Swindon v Rochdale – Sat 20th Aug 15:00 BST

  • Rochdale are rooted to the bottom of the table with 4 losses in their 4 league matches so far. With just one goal scored in those games it looks like it could be a long season for Dale fans.
  • Swindon have yet to really click into gear but this looks like a good chance to kickstart their season.
  • The Robbins started with an opening day loss and come into this game on a run of 3 consecutive draws. They were one of the league’s top sides last term, illustrated by their spot in the playoffs, and despite some player churn over the summer still have a lot of quality at this level.
  • A home win looks a solid bet in this one.
