Brentford vs. Preston North End: EFL Betting Tip on Best Betting Sites
Thomas Frank’s Brentford are the form team of the EFL Championship at present. The Bees have won each of their last seven, keeping the likes of Leeds United and West Bromwich Albion honest at the top.
On Wednesday night, Brentford take on Alex Neil’s Preston North End, who are still battling for a place in this season’s Championship play-offs. The Lilywhites start the week in eighth position on 62 points.
Brentford have looked irresistible since returning to action from the enforced break, winning all six of their fixtures. With only three games to go, the London side could still finish in the top two and book their place in next season’s Premier League.
I fancy Brentford to secure another comfortable home win on Wednesday. BetVictor are offering the excellent betting odds of 13/10 for the home side to win -1.
Preston North End 17/10

Birmingham City vs. Charlton Athletic: Best Football League Betting Predictions
After a woeful run of results, Birmingham City have been dragged into the Championship relegation dogfight. The Blues have failed to win any of their previous 11 league matches, drawing six and losing five.
As for Charlton Athletic, Lee Bowyer’s boys are only above the drop zone by a single point at the time of writing. The Londoners have lost each of their last three since picking up seven points from a possible nine after the restart.
This is a massive game for both teams, as an away win will put Charlton level on points with Birmingham with two matches still to play.
Both sides will be gunning for maximum points, but I fancy the two strugglers to play out a tense draw at St Andrew’s. Take a punt on the draw and under 2.5 goals, which is nicely priced at 11/4.
Birmingham City 13/10
Charlton Athletic 21/10

Nottingham Forest vs. Swansea City: Best EFL Betting Tips on Matchday 44
Sabri Lamouchi’s Nottingham Forest and Steve Cooper’s Swansea City meet in a huge EFL Championship fixture at the City Ground on Wednesday. Forest will book their place in the end-of-season play-offs with victory over the Swans.
Since securing back-to-back wins over Huddersfield Town and Bristol City, Nottingham Forest are without a win in three, picking up just two points from the last nine on offer. However, they did battle to a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Preston North End last time out.
Swansea picked up successive wins over Sheffield Wednesday and Birmingham City, which has kept their play-off dreams alive. However, they were beaten at home by Leeds United in their last outing.
This is a tricky game to call, but home advantage could be key. You can get the hosts to win at the tempting betting odds of 29/20 (bet365).
Nottingham Forest 8/5
Swansea City 17/10
