Read on for Championship play-offs semis second leg tips…
Reading v Fulham
Live on Tuesday at 19:45 BST on Sky Sports 3.
Match to go to extra-time
These two teams have battled out all three results this season against each other – the most recent of which was a draw in the play-offs first leg.
But neither side have lost at home to the other, with Reading prevailing 1-0 at the Madejski Stadium, just over a month after Fulham smashed the Royals for five in west London.
Another share of the spoils in normal time beckons, therefore, which would see the match go to extra-time, as away goals don’t count.
Back a draw in 90 minutes at 5/2 with Sky Bet.
Cairney to score in normal time
Cottagers attacker Tom Cairney has been a revelation for them this season, getting 13 goals and 12 assists in all competitions.
The English-born Scotland international has been captain for Fulham most of the campaign, including last time out against Reading.
Cairney was also on target that match, after cancelling out Jordan Obita’s opener.
So, why not back him to score again in normal time at 11/4 with Paddy Power?
Sheffield Wednesday v Huddersfield Town
Live on Wednesday at 19:45 BST on Sky Sports 3.
Owls to win to nil
Between these two Yorkshire teams, they have seven English top flight titles, though Huddersfield were the last to win one way back in 1925/26.
They have also spent far more years outside of the top division than Reading and Fulham, with the Owls last there in 1999/00 while Huddersfield have never played in the Premier League.
It is Wednesday, though, who came into the play-offs in the better form, having won six of their last seven.
They also beat Huddersfield twice during the regular season, both without conceding, and will have been delighted to get a draw in the play-offs first leg.
Back the Owls at 5/2 with Paddy Power to win to nil in 90 minutes once again.
Forestieri to score in 90 mins
Argentine-born Italian Fernando Forestieri has also bagged in the goals for the Owls this season.
He has 12 in 35 appearances, two of which came in wins over the Terriers.
The attacker didn’t score last time out, so will be determined to do so this time and help Wednesday to the play-offs final.
Forestieri is 15/8 with Sky Bet to strike anytime again, in 90 minutes.
