Easter Monday EFL acca

Leicester vs Norwich: Over 2.5 goals

Ipswich vs Southampton: Both teams score

Birmingham vs Preston: Under 2.5

Coventry to win

Leeds to win


Leicester City vs Norwich City

Leicester’s 1-0 loss at Bristol City was the fifth setback in six games. The Foxes were the better team and should have one, but that’s becoming a familiar story.

Leeds aside, Norwich are a tougher opponent than the teams they’ve dropped points against. The Canaries are in fine form with nine wins in 13 matches.

On the other hand, they’ve saved their best for Carrow Road. Their away record suggests they can score here and City are due an outburst of goals.

This could be a home walkover, a high-scoring draw or if Enzo Maresca’s woes continue, a 1-0 loss. But personally, we fancy goals.


Ipswich vs Southampton

Ipswich won the reverse fixture 1-0 earlier in the season and have been competitive against the top sides, drawing both meetings with Leicester 1-1 and losing 4-3 to Leeds.

Town’s 0-0 draw with QPR at Loftus Road must go down as an anomaly. Kieran McKenna’s side have scored 53 in 19 on home soil.

Southampton have dropped points in four of six to extend their poor record against sides in the top 12 and defeat here ends their automatic promotion hopes.

The positive for Russell Martin is they’ve scored in all 30 Championship matches since last meeting Town so we’ll back both teams to score.


Birmingham City vs Preston North End

Both of these sides played out a game featuring three goals on Friday when we backed their matches to feature under 2.5.

There have been under 2.5 goals in four of City’s previous five and it took a second-half flurry and a 92nd-minute wondergoal to ruin our bet on Friday.

Preston are in with a slim chance of making the playoffs. Their recent form has been solid and they’ve kept a clean sheet in five of eight.


Coventry City vs Cardiff City

This is not a guaranteed win for Coventry but it would be a shame to let Friday’s 3-1 win at Huddersfield go to waste when hosting a Cardiff side who are hit and miss on the road.

Norwich may have dropped points by the time this game kicks off and if that is the case, we’re confident Mark Robins’ side are in the form to take advantage.

They’ve won their last four in all competitions and seven of 10 at home.


Leeds United vs Hull City

Five wins in six propelled Hull back into the play-off fight but it looks like they may be running out of gas at the wrong time.

The Tigers are winless in five and lost to a Stoke side battling relegation at the weekend.

Leeds’ late equaliser at Watford was a point gained on Leicester and arguably a good one in the circumstances. They’ll know what they need to do come kick-off at 8 pm.
