Yet again, shocking results sweep across English football and leave punters in disarray. The English Football League (EFL) isn’t for the weak-willed bettor; let’s take a peek at this week’s fixture list and hunt that value.

<div><h2 align="center"><strong><u>Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds United </u></strong><br /><strong><u>Saturday, October 26<sup>th</sup> at Hillsborough Stadium</u></strong><br /><strong><u><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="EFL Championship Betting Odds">Betting Tip: 1.5u on under 2.5 goals @ 1.85 [-105] with Unibet</a></u></strong></h2><p>The biggest Yorkshire derby in the English Championship will take place this Saturday afternoon. Leeds United makes the short journey over to Hillsborough in preparation to take on Sheffield United. A win for 3<sup>rd</sup> place Sheffield to take three points on home turf against 2<sup>nd</sup> position Leeds would see Leeds relinquish that position in the table and fall two points behind their rivals.</p><p>Exceeding the expectations of fans and management is one thing, finding yourself within the top 3 of the table after 13 fixtures have been a great confidence boost for Sheffield. The arrival of Garry Monk has clearly made a positive impact on the club, managing an impressive 23 points across thirteen fixtures places Sheffield in a serious title contention run.</p><p>Through their previous seven games, Sheffield has constructed a solid formation which hasn’t seen them give up too many goals. Their home record is pleasing but the previous two wins on home soil did come against teams in the lower half of the division. Sheffield has kept it tight at the back, especially at home.</p><p>Leeds United, head into the Hillsborough clash in fine form, as expected. After last season’s turn-around in results post-Christmas, the Leeds United manager will be aiming to avoid a similar drop in form at all costs. 24 points with just 8 goals conceded put Leeds as the best defensive team in the league, between Leeds and Sheffield; 18 goals have been conceded from 26 games. A tough derby fixture at Hillsborough should keep the low scoring trend between these two, alive!</p><p>In all honesty, I see huge value in Sheffield here but given the scoring trends of these two sides, the under 2.5 goals for close to even money is something that can’t be ignored.</p><p><em><strong>Prediction/Tip: 1.5u on under 2.5 goals @ [1.85] [-117] with Unibet</strong></em></p><h2 style="text-align:center"><strong><u>Preston vs Blackburn </u></strong><br /><strong><u>Saturday, October 26<sup>th</sup> at Deepdale </u></strong><br /><strong><u><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="EFL Championship Betting Odds">Betting Tip: 1.5u Preston Win @ 2.00 [+100) with Bet365</a></u></strong></h2><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img alt src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/aMAXgCpGiRCHjK9FJucJRzPQp4I=/0x0:3512x2342/1200x800/filters:focal(1240x757:1800x1317)/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/65496367/1179340419.jpg.0.jpg" style="width:700px;height:467px" /></strong></p><p>Preston will host Blackburn this weekend, another chance for the North-End side to progress their impressive home record. In Preston’s previous ten games, they’ve lost just one, without a single defeat on home turf. This would include successful outings versus stiff competition in the top half of the league. On top of that, they’re scoring average at home is an impressive 1.66.</p><p>Blackburn hasn’t been so impressive. A sketchy mid-week performance against Birmingham leaves just 5 points between them and the relegation zone. Results are needed and fast. Unfortunately, they’re back on the road this weekend facing a Preston side that leaves zero room for failure, whilst playing at Deepdale.</p><p>So, Preston has the undefeated home form and Blackburn maintains a terrible away form. I think this makes our life pretty simple when looking for a secure betting prediction. Blackburn continues to struggle to find goals whilst away from home, facing this Preston side shouldn’t alter that trend what so ever.</p><p>When we analyse the current form, Preston conquer. When we compare the statistics, Preston conquers again. The EFL does provide some ultra-questionable results but I’m confident that Preston can get the job done with ease.</p><p><em><strong>Prediction/Tip: 1.5u on Preston win @ [2.00] [+100] with Bet365</strong></em></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2><strong><u>EFL bets, tips &amp; predictions (All 1u Plays Unless Stated Otherwise)</u></strong></h2><p><strong><u>EPL</u></strong></p><p><strong><em>Southampton vs Leicester – both teams to score @ 1.73 [-136] with William Hill</em> </strong></p><p><strong><em>Manchester City win &amp; both teams to score @ 2.38 [+138] with Betway </em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Chelsea win &amp; under 4.5 goals vs Burnley @ 2.25 [+2.25] with Coral</em> </strong></p><p><strong><em>Brighton vs Everton under 2.5 goals @ 1.80 [-125] with Betfair</em></strong></p><p><strong><u>EFL Championship</u></strong></p><p><strong><em>Millwall vs Stoke – draw – 0.5u @ 2.85 [+185] with Unibet</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Nottingham Forest win &amp; under 4.5 goals vs Reading @ 2.45 [+145] with Coral</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Cardiff vs Swansea under 2.5 goals @ 1.90 [-110] with Bet365</em></strong></p><p><strong><em>QPR draw no bet vs Brentford @ 1.96 [-104] with Unibet</em></strong></p><p><strong><u>English League One (Tuesday)</u></strong></p><p><strong><em>Ipswich win &amp; over 1.5 goals @ 2.00 [+100] with Paddypower </em></strong></p><p><strong><em>Blackpool draw no bet vs Burton @ 2.95 [+195] with Unibet</em></strong></p></div>
