Premier League

Five Super Over 2.5 and Under 2.5 Picks To Place on For a Big Return

SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY V BLACKBURN

Sheff Wednesday were left heartbroken at the weekend as a late Tyreeq Bakinson restricted them to a 1-1 draw at home against Bristol City. The Owls have failed to win any of their last three league games and have a mountain to climb if they're to stay in the division.

Blackburn displayed their character at the weekend as they responded to Tom Lawrence’s first-half header with goals from Sam Gallagher and Harvey Elliott on their way to a 2-1 home win. Rovers ended a run of seven league games without a win.

Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

BRISTOL ROVERS V MK DONS

Like Swindon below them, anything less than three points here will all-but confirm Bristol Rovers' relegation to League Two. The Pirates were narrowly beaten by Lincoln on Saturday, their ninth defeat already following the arrival of Joey Barton, who needs a minor miracle to save the club from going down.

As for MK Dons, whilst the play-offs look beyond them, it's been an outstanding campaign which could still end with a top-half finish. The Dons beat Portsmouth on Saturday, have won five of their previous eight matches and should really get the job done once again here.

Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

COLCHESTER V SOUTHEND

It has been known for some time that Tuesday night's Essex Derby would play a key part in the battle to beat the EFL's trap door, but Colchester United's victory over Walsall last time out alters the terms of this contest.

Rather than being a tense, nervy affair in which both sides are afraid of making a mistake, the six-point gap between these teams either side of the dotted line means a draw is no good for Southend United; Phil Brown's troops will therefore throw caution to the wind in the second half, if they are not ahead at half-time.

That, in turn, means their hosts will not need to do a great deal to win; merely stay compact, keep the worst attacking fourth-tier side of all-time at bay and the game will open up for them organically.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
