DW's Midweek Betting Tips

Heracles v RKC Waalwijk

Heracles are looking comfortable in the playoff places for a Europa League place next year. With only one defeat in the last seven and three straight home wins, they will be hoping to consolidate their position in the playoff places.

Proving everybody wrong, Waalwijk pulled off an impressive win against Vitesse at the weekend. After 13 straight defeats, a 4-1 victory has given them the faintest hope of survival, despite being eight points adrift at the bottom.

Although Waalwijk cost me at the weekend, this game against Heracles will be a much greater challenge, and having won only once away from home all season, I expect a comfortable win for Heracles.

Bet: Heracles -1.5AH @ 1.64

Berwick v Livingstone

Berwick are battling for a place in the playoffs in the Scottish Division 3, but with only two wins in the past eight games, they are struggling a little of late. However, they are unbeaten in three games at home, following a streak of four straight defeats. They have a number of injury concerns, although have taken four points from a possible six against Livingstone this season.

Livingstone will be crowned champions with a win tonight, although would be virtually guaranteed promotion with a draw due to their superior goal difference. Two defeats in three matches has been a bit of a stutter for the team having not lost in the league since early December prior to this. The fact that they are a fully-professional outfit gives them an edge in this division.

Despite a recent slump, Livingstone are the class outfit in this division and it would be foolish to bet against them bouncing back to winning ways tonight.

Bet: Livingstone @ 2.00

Tranmere Rovers v Wycombe Wanderers

Tranmere are desperately fighting relegation from League 1 and have found some good form recently, particularly at home. Victories over Norwich, Southampton and Leyton Orient in their past six home games have given them hope of survival.

Wycombe are also fighting relegation, but lie 7 points adrift with only five games remaining. Whilst they have only lost four of their last 10 away matches, they haven’t kept a clean sheet since November, which is a major problem for them. They have scored 11 in their last 6 away games, showing they have goals in them though.

Tranmere still have a realistic hope of survival, whilst Wycombe are virtually doomed despite victory last weekend. This added incentive, combined with solid recent form at home, should be enough to see Tranmere home.

Bet: Tranmere to win @ 1.90

Yeovil v Millwall

Yeovil have lost four of the last seven games at home and have little to play for this season now. They have a number of injury concerns ahead of the game.

Millwall are in the chase for automatic promotion and following Swindon’s slip last night have the chance to pull away. They have won their last three away from home, and eight out of ten in the league. With virtually no injury concerns, they know that three points here would be a massive boost considering the tricky fixtures that they end the season with.

Millwall are flying at the moment and are the form team in the division. With a fully fit squad, they should have a good chance against a Yeovil team who are safe in mid-table.

Bet: Millwall @ 1.75

Chelsea v Bolton

Chelsea have been in imperious form in recent weeks, having won four games, scoring 17 goals since crashing out of the Champions League to Inter Milan. Ancelotti is expected to make a couple of changes from the side that won at Wembley on Saturday, bringing in Michael Ballack, Salomon Kalou and Nicolas Anelka for Deco, Joe Cole and Didier Drogba, but they will still have a very strong team on display.

Bolton lie five points clear of the relegation zone, and whilst not completely safe, should be fine this season. Their away form has been sketchy with a number of comfortable defeats against the likes of Blackburn, Tottenham and Sunderland. They should get the points to stay up, but not against Chelsea – it will be more damage limitation tonight.

Chelsea will surely win this game and it is really a matter of how many. Bolton tend to be a little too negative when approaching these games and lie down too easily, so this could be a relatively big win.

Bet: Chelsea -2AH @ 1.68

Accrington Stanley v Port Vale

Accrington have lost five and drawn one of their last six games and have only 3 wins in their last sixteen games. They are comfortable in mid-table, with virtually nothing to play for whatsoever. Their home record reads 9-1-9 so far, suggesting they are vulnerable at home, and have conceded 35 goals at home – more than any other side in the division.

Port Vale still maintain hopes of a playoff place, lying only four points back with five games left to play. Their away form has been promising, with four wins in the last six games. A solid point against Aldershot at the weekend was a boost, and their work-rate and determination has been noticeable in recent games.

Port Vale have more to play for in this game against a seemingly disinterested Accrington side that have been inconsistent at home throughout the season. A victory for Vale would boost their hopes of playoff football.

Bet: Port Vale @ 2.60
