Bets to be placed by 7pm
Brentford to beat Derby
Watford to beat Rotherham
Peterborough to beat Portsmouth
Salford to beat Colchester
Promotion-chasing Brentford have won three of their last four games and can overcome Derby while elsewhere in the Championship relegation-threatened Rotherham could struggle to contain Watford.
Peterborough are flying high in League One and can beat Portsmouth, who recently parted ways with Kenny Jackett, while Salford can justify favouritism against Colchester. The acca pays just over 12-1.
