March madness is upon us and the next few weeks of action across the EFL should be spectacular. With a little bit of luck, that drama will fire us to a huge 63/1 winner on Saturday’s BTTS & Win coupon.
There is a chance that the weather will cause at least one postponement across our treble. At these odds, though, even a double would be delightful. Here are our selections!
Nottingham Forest V Birmingham City
After picking up an impressive 5-2 win at QPR last week, Aitor Karanka’s Reds will feel as though their Championship survival is now well on track A home win over Birmingham would signal another huge leap towards that aim and they will fancy their chances, even if their defensive record continues to pose a few questions.
The hosts have conceded 24 goals in 17 matches at the City Ground this term. Yet, despite scoring just 18 in reply, they do boast seven wins and a draw. While that’s still a long way short of great form, it’s far better than Birmingham’s return of 10 points from their 17 away matches.
Steve Cotterrill’s men have lost five competitive fixtures on the bounce while they boast just 11 away goals all season. The Blues can still look to Sam Gallagher and co. as they bid to end their scoring drought and, having how the reverse clash, will search the goals that could drag them out of the bottom three.
Sadly, though, it’s hard to overlook their defensive problems. Lee Tomlin and co. should be ready to punish the visitors.

Scunthorpe United V Oldham Athletic
Despite scoring 19 goals on the road, Oldham find themselves starting March in the League One relegation zone due largely to a return of just two wins on the road. Unfortunately for the Latics, things are unlikely to get any easier as they head to promotion-chasing Scunthorpe.
Richie Wellens’ men have picked up seven points from the last three games overall while the quality of Craig Davis should cause problems for the hosts, who have conceded 17 in 17 home games. However, it’s hard to overlook Oldham’s poor defensive record and that could cost them dearly here.
Their form may be a little erratic recently, but a run of 14 games without firing a blank shows that Graham Alexander’s men know where the goal is even after losing three decent strikers in January. Their current frontline should have more than enough quality to see off the struggling visitors in style.
That was the story of the afternoon when Scunthorpe won 3-2 at Boundary Park back in October. A similar situation could well develop in this one too, even with those changes in mind.

Swindon Town V Yeovil Town
While their away form has let them down massively in recent weeks, Swindon’s home record has kept them in the League Two play-off places. They’ll be eager to stay there this weekend with another three points as Yeovil visit the County Ground, and should have the attacking quality to do so.
The Robins can look to Luke Norris, Marc Richards, and Matty Taylor for inspiration in the final third against their struggling opponents. A return of 23 goals has fired them to eight wins on home turf, and this should be the ideal opportunity for another considering that the visitors have leaked a colossal 38 on their travels. Still, the hosts may not have things all their own way.
Darren Way’s side have scored 19 away goals this term. Unfortunately, that hasn’t stopped them losing 10 of their 17 matches, and they could be set for another disappointing afternoon in spite of the fact that Swindon have conceded 29 home goals.
Two poor defences should allow their respective opponents to score. With home advantage on their side, however, we’re predicting an important three points for Swindon.
