Wolves v Preston - 18/1 at Coral - Saturday 15:00
We should be in for a thrilling game at Molineux as league leaders Wolves take on Play-Off hopefuls Preston North End. Wolves lead the way in the Championship by two points while Preston sit 5th and are just three points off the automatic promotion places.
Wolves have won four of their last five league games and take on a Preston side unbeaten in nine. We can't split these two sides on current form but we fancy plenty of goals in this one. We've seen over 3.5 goals land in three of Preston's last five league games and have netted seven goals in their last three away games at Fulham (2-2), Hull (1-2) and Birmingham (1-3).
This is arguably their toughest away game of the season so far but we fancy their chances to score in each half against Wolves. Wolves have kept just two clean sheets in their last six league games and have conceded four goals in their last three home games; the most notable high-scoring game coming in their 3-3 draw against Bristol City, with BTTS in Both Halves landing in that result. We fancy goals galore at Molineux.
Swindon v Wycombe - 14/1 at Coral - Saturday 15:00

Wycombe sit 4th after 14 games with 26 points while Swindon are outside the Play-Offs with 22 points, just two points behind Stevenage in 7th.
Swindon were disappointing in their 0-1 defeat to Lincoln last time out but netted 12 in their previous six league games. Swindon have netted at least one goal in each half in two of their last four home games. Despite a frustrating 0-0 draw at home to Exeter last time out, we've seen a plethora of goals in Wycombe's last seven league games.
