Celebrations for Millwall
Celebrations for Millwall

Nick Hext brings you his selections for Saturday's action in the Sky Bet EFL, including Millwall providing value when they travel to Middlesbrough.

Saturday evening's TV game

Millwall/draw in double chance market v Middlesbrough, Sky Bet Championship (Saturday, 1730 BST, Sky Sports Main Event)

Millwall have been underestimated for Saturday evening's trip to Middlesbrough. The Lions realistically need a win to keep their bid for a Sky Bet Championship play-off place going to the final day of the season and 7/2 is too big for the visitors to the Riverside to net a three-point haul. Millwall are unbeaten in their last nine away games in the league, including an impressive seven victories in that run. Neil Harris' men certainly have nothing to fear from heavy favourites Boro. Tony Pulis' side have failed to beat any of the five other teams above Millwall at home this season and they only managed draws against Brentford and Preston, the two clubs just below the Lions, at the Riverside. There's close to even-money available for a Millwall or a draw in the double chance odds and that's well worth a look.

Saturday afternoon's Sky Bet Championship selection

Half-time draw in Hull v Cardiff, Sky Bet Championship (Saturday, 1500 BST)

Attention turns back to Cardiff on Saturday afternoon in the race to join Wolves in winning automatic promotion out of the Sky Bet Championship. The Bluebirds are battling it out with Fulham to finish in second and the next assignment for Neil Warnock's men is a tricky trip north to Hull. The Tigers have scored 14 goals in their last four matches, winning two, drawing one and losing one of those games. The main task for Cardiff is to repel Hull's attacking threat and I like the look of the draw at half-time. Cardiff suffered a dispiriting 3-1 defeat at Derby in midweek and Warnock knows that victory by any means is required.

Saturday afternoon's Sky Bet League One selection

Plymouth to beat Rotherham, Sky Bet League One (Saturday, 1500 BST)

The pressure is on Plymouth when they host Rotherham as the scramble for a Sky Bet League One play-off place continues. The seventh-placed Pilgrims still have aspirations of back-to-back promotions but victory is required over the Millers to keep the race going. Rotherham are certain of a top-six finish and changes are expected from boss Paul Warne in the final two matches of the regular campaign. I like Plymouth for the win at close to 2/1 as they remain a seriously impressive side at this level. Derek Adams' side have lost just two of their previous 14 outings and can make sure of victory when it matters most.

Saturday afternoon's Sky Bet League Two selection

Yeovil to beat Mansfield, Sky Bet League Two (Saturday, 1500 BST)

Mansfield's bid for a Sky Bet League Two play-off place has floundered in the run-in. The Stags have only won one of their last 11 games and former manager Steve Evans' departure has proved pivotal in the promotion race. David Flitcroft has failed to get Mansfield going and I'm with Yeovil at 7/2 to spring a surprise with home advantage at Huish Park. The Glovers have secured survival for another season and the price is right for Darren Way's side to secure a three-point haul in their final home game of the 2017/18 campaign

Recommended bets

2pts Plymouth to beat Rotherham at 179/100
