Head here to back Swansea, Stoke, Peterborough and Carlisle all to win at 16/1 with Sky Bet

Swansea (to beat Hull)

Steve Cooper takes charge of the Welsh side in a competitive game for the first time since replacing Graham Potter and they come up against a Tigers side set for a campaign battling to avoid the drop.

Against a poor Hull side who have many problems of their own, the hosts can start the campaign in winning ways.

Stoke (to beat QPR)

Nathan Jones: Stoke City boss expected to have an exciting campaign in the Sky Bet Championship

The Potters have recruited well this summer under Nathan Jones and are expected to be up there near the top come May.

They had a terrific defensive record under the former Luton boss in the second half of the campaign and they should be tough to beat again this term, with an added goal threat in their new-look side.

Mark Warburton's QPR could be in for a long season and they have been tasked with a tough start here.

Peterborough (to beat Fleetwood)

Darren Ferguson's Posh have been tipped by Sky Bet EFL expert Tom Carnduff to top the division and they have a home match to start in style.

They have built a side that looks strong in all areas, with a positive transfer window boosting a squad that probably should have performed better last season.

They possess so much quality going forward and the London Road faithful will be hoping that they demonstrate that on opening day.

Carlisle (to beat Crawley)

Steven Pressley's side have had a busy transfer window with a number of players coming in. They can start with a home victory over a Crawley side fancied by some for relegation.
