League One GW3 Preview and Betting Tips

The EFL League One GW3, a.k.a Game Week 3 Preview has just gone live!

The EFL League One table is slowly starting to take shape, with Wycombe, Portsmouth, Sunderland and Burton the teams to record maximum points from their first two matches and the bookies now regard the Black Cats as a firm favourite to land promotion. However, their clash against the Brewers is sure to be a tough one, while Pompey have an altogether easier clash against Shrewsbury. We predict what’s going to happen on Tuesday night.


Burton Albion 19:45 Sunderland

Perhaps Sunderland really mean business under Lee Johnson this season. The Black Cats have come flying out of the traps with wins over Wigan and MK Dons, with the Wearside team now heading to the Pirelli Stadium where they’ll be confident of another win. Burton are going along nicely but can’t compete resources-wise with their opponents.

Lincoln City 19:45 Bolton Wanderers

It seems an absolute no-brainer to predict both sides finding the net at Sincil Bank considering that the two teams have been involved in three BTTS games apiece already. Bolton in particular seem attack-minded to the extent that lots of goals will be on the cards in most of their games including this one.

Milton Keynes Dons 19:45 Charlton Athletic

Liam Manning has a tough act to follow after replacing Russell Martin at MK Dons and the early signs are that he needs to sort the defence out. After a 3-3 draw at Bolton came a 2-1 home reverse against Sunderland, with Charlton hungry to kickstart their season after the Addicks could only manage a point in their first two clashes.

Morecambe 19:45 Rotherham United

While Morecambe deserve tremendous credit for bagging four points from two matches, they might come a cropper against a Rotherham side who were unfortunate to lose at Wigan on Saturday. Paul Warne was delighted with his side’s performance in that clash and they previously beat Plymouth with something to spare. recommend adding this football game to a betting accumulator with Rotherham as odds on to win.

Oxford United 19:45 Crewe Alexandra

Oxford United followed up their 1-1 draw at Cambridge with a 2-1 victory over Charlton, with Karl Robinson now looking for his side to mount a promotion charge. Matt Taylor might get off the mark against a Crewe side who were second best to Pompey on Saturday and look as though they could be relegation contenders.

Portsmouth 19:45 Shrewsbury Town

Portsmouth are genuine promotion contenders this season and Danny Cowley has engineered victories over Fleetwood and Crewe already. It’s likely that they’ll continue a 100% record when clashing with a Shrewsbury side who have recently lost captain Oliver Norburn and we’re expecting the visitors to be soundly beaten.

Sheffield Wednesday 19:45 Fleetwood Town

Sheffield Wednesday are proving a difficult team to score against, with the Owls having earned a goalless draw at Charlton before a comprehensive 2-0 win against Doncaster. Darren Moore’s side should have too much in hand for a Fleetwood side who have lost their first two clashes.

Wigan Athletic 19:45 Wycombe Wanderers

We’re expecting an entertaining game of football between two promotion contenders, with Gareth Ainsworth’s side sitting top of the table after wins over Accrington and Cheltenham. They will be confident of more goals against a Latics side who bounced back from their defeat at Sunderland by beating Rotherham. Wycombe Wanderers have got off to a flying start with 2 straight wins, pinning them to the Top of the EFL League One table.
