The Football League concludes this weekend with plenty of promotion questions still to be answered across all three divisions.
In an attempt to sign off the season with a wallet-bursting win, the news.bwin.com tipping taskforce have attempted to solve the riddles in question in the shape of a fourfold accumulator that pays just over 35/1.
Derby and Reading to draw @ 4/1
Anything but defeat will steer the sixth-place Rams into the play-offs, but with chasing pair Brentford and Wolves facing home gimmies against already-relegated Wigan and Millwall, a loss is sure to prove fatal.
Two points divides Steve McClaren’s men from the duo, but having a goal difference double that of the Bees in seventh, they should bag the final ticket for the post-season lottery.
A home win here is available at a microscopically short 3/10, but given County have prevailed in just two of their previous 12 games, they can’t be relied upon to do so.
MK Dons to beat Yeovil @ 19/100
For the Dons, success is imperative if they are to overhaul Preston and claim the second automatic promotion spot in League One.
Thankfully for them, they’ve been drawn to play bottom of the table Yeovil at home.
Grappling with the fact that next season will see them ply their trade in the fourth tier, the Glovers have been bested in seven of their last ten outings, while only champions Bristol City can match Karl Robinson’s men for backyard victories.
Colchester and Preston to draw @ 14/5
The pressure has clearly been getting to the Lilywhites, with three draws in five allowing the MK Dons to chip away at their points advantage in League One’s second spot.
Another draw, which will see them ousted from the silver medal spot if the above prediction proves accurate, is on the cards here, with Colchester playing for survival.
They’re unbeaten in four at home and can climb out of the bottom four with a point courtesy of goal difference so certainly won’t make this easy for Preston.
Southend to beat Morecambe @ 3/5
The Shrimpers head to the home of the Shrimps knowing that victory will see them finish third in League Two.
Ambling in 12th ahead of their summer holidays, it’s difficult to envisage Morecambe stemming the Essex outfit’s glorious run of seven successive wins to nil that has brought them to the cusp of promotion, even if they do benefit from home advantage.
Both Bury and Wycombe can capitalise if the hosts do prevail, but it’s sure to be the play-offs for both.
