As far as betting is concerned, it has been a very decent Easter thus far. We’re looking to end the four-day celebration on the highest of highs by netting a huge £900 profit at Coral from just a £10 stake.
We’re backing these three home teams to all register important victories, but we also think the three away teams can get amongst the goals too. At odds of over 90/1, it has to be worth a punt.
Norwich City V Sheffield Wednesday
Alex Neil has worked wonders since replacing Neil Adams at Carrow Road back in January and the Canaries are now genuine contenders for the Championship title. However, they should expect a difficult test against the in-form Owls.
Norwich are the division’s third highest scorers and the attacking talents of Gary Hooper, Lewis Grabban and Cameron Jerome are bound to cause problems for the Wednesday defence here. The Canaries have failed to score just once in their past 12 league outings and it would be a massive shock if they don’t add to the 44 goals scored in 20 home games this term.
Nevertheless, the visitors shouldn’t be ruled out completely and Stuart Gray’s men will be eager to continue their fine recent form. The Owls have lost just two of their last six and also boast 24 goals on the road, although it is worth noting they’ve also leaked 24 from their 20 away matches.
Norwich will be expected to triumph, but there is no reason to think Wednesday can’t at least grab a consolation.

Crawley Town V Oldham Athletic
The League One survival scrap is well and truly heating up and Dean Saunders will be desperate to mastermind a fourth win in six as Crawley welcome Oldham Athletic to the Checkatrade.com Stadium.
Dean Holden’s Latics might be sitting comfortably in mid-table, but their recent form has been inconsistent to say the least. However, the visitors have hit 21 goals on the road and should definitely fancy their chances of a goal against the struggling Red Devils.
Nonetheless, Oldham have very little motivation at this stage of the season and that could give Crawley the edge required to succeed. The hosts have scored 25 times at home this term and will be eager to increase that in their bid to escape the bottom four.
The League One rivals shared a 1-1 draw back at Boundary Park and we think it’ll be another BTTS winner here. On this occasion, though, we have to edge towards a home win.

Southport V AFC Telford United
A run of 10 points from a possible 15 has essentially secured Southport’s place in the Vanarama Conference next term. However, Paul Carden will be eager to see his side confirm their survival with three points against the already relegated Telford.
Results have sadly eluded the visitors all season. On a brighter note, though, Steve Kittrick’s men do tend to find the target and have now posted a total of 51 goals this season – including 26 on the road.
Unfortunately, those attacking qualities have often been overshadowed by a defence that’s shipped a huge 81 league goals. There’s a very strong chance that this will be the story of their afternoon once again at Haig Avenue.
Southport might not score that many home goals but they should fancy their chances against the relegated Bucks. Nevertheless, we think the visitors will score.
