We take a look away from the Premier League to pick out some of the best statistical-based wagers that might help you beat the bookies this weekend

The Premier League may take centre stage this weekend but there are plenty of winners to be found in the Football League.

Using Opta's industry-leading data, we've picked out three selections from the Championship, League One and Two.

Swansea vs Sheffield Wednesday

If history is anything to go by, this should be a routine win for the Swans as they have an incredible record against the Owls

Indeed, Sheffield Wednesday haven’t won an away match in Wales in all competitions in their last 11 attempts (D5 L6).

Alongside their poor record in the principality, the Yorkshire club haven’t scored a single goal in their last five matches against Swansea in all competitions.

To add to this, Wednesday's current form is rotten winning just one of their last nine Championship games (D2 L6), a 1-0 victory against Bolton in November.

Although it is odds-on, Swansea to win at 8/11 (1.73) looks slightly overpriced with bet365.

Southend United vs Accrington Stanley

Southend look good value at 13/10 (2.30) to beat Accrington Stanley this weekend considering how both teams have been performing as of late.

Accrington visit Roots Hall on their worst run of form this season. They are without a win in their last six league games (D2 L4), losing the last three in a row.

Southend's home form is impressive as well, with the Shrimpers keeping 10 clean sheets in their last 15 home games. They haven't been short of goals recently either, netting 13 times in their last six games in all competitions.

With Southend being 13/10 (2.30) at home to beat a Stanley side in poor form, that is value too good to turn down.

Charlton vs AFC Wimbledon

Our best bet of the weekend comes in the Charlton vs AFC Wimbledon game where a Charlton win at 19/20 (1.95) looks a terrific price.

Charlton are looking to go on their best home run since 2017, and a win here would see them win three consecutive home league games for the first time since a run of six in September 2017.

They have the perfect opposition for it as well in AFC Wimbledon, who have lost their last six away league games. Only Fulham have a worse record than that in the top four leagues in England

On top of this the Dons have scored fewer goals than any other League One side this season (15), with just four of those coming away from home
