Featuring 72 clubs across three divisions, the English Football League boasts a packed fixture list that offers plenty of profitable plays for sports bettors. To help get their selections right, bettors can consult an increasingly varied amount of iOS and Android-compatible sports betting apps that are devoted to football’s oldest league competition. Yet, with plenty of Football League apps to pick from, selecting the right ones can be an arduous task. The good news is that we’re here to help. Whether betting on fixtures in the Championship, League One or League Two, here are five must-have EFL apps to help you beat the bookies.
OLBG Tips covers a variety of sports yet its tips for football are the most comprehensive, making it a must-have for any Football League bettor. There are a variety of strong features that make this app a standout, including a popular ‘Hot Tips’ category that details the day’s best plays and allows users to leave comments on each suggestion. Each tipster’s recent track record is also displayed, with a ‘Hot Tipsters’ section pointing to the experts that are in a rich vein of form. Free bets and additional offers, bookmaker reviews, betting blogs and a betting forum round out a wide-ranging tipping service that can be comfortably accessed on an iPhone, iPad, Samsung Galaxy or other mobile device.
This Sky Sports app comes complete with in-depth football coverage that includes video highlights from every EFL game, live scores and all the major news to keep bettors on top of the crucial details. The live scoring module contains several handy traits, with each match page featuring live commentary, line-ups and detailed stats that make it a great tool for in-play wagering. The news section also includes informative match previews with all the relevant fixture details that can sway bettors toward specific plays. For those looking for details about particular EFL teams, notifications can be organised for multiple teams while the app’s home page can likewise be personalised. The Sky Sports Live Football Score Centre app is available on iOS and Android mobile devices.
When it comes to in-play football betting tips BettingExpert provides a multi-tiered betting platform that functions as both a live tipping service and social betting experience. Users can find and follow particular tipsters that specialise in EFL in-play betting, with a notifications feature allowing them to learn exactly when their expert of choice posts suggested plays. Notifications can also be set to detail when EFL goals are scored and matches are about to kick-off. Users can connect with their friends through the app, allowing them to monitor when people in their network have placed bets. BettingExpert syncs with Bet365 and is one of the best iPhone betting apps for the EFL.
Another option that doubles up as an EFL tipping service and social betting hub, WantMyBet (iOS, Android) makes betting convenient on a number of levels. The ability to sync Ladbrokes and BoyleSports accounts with the app is a huge perk, allowing users to deposit, bet and check their balances with these bookmakers without leaving the app. William Hill customers can also look forward to utilising this feature in the near future. The user’s feed can be personalised to get updates from specific experts, while a handy leaderboard feature showcases which tipsters are consistently picking winners. The app is also interactive, allowing comments on tips and social media sharing, while weekly competitions and a refer-a-friend program provide additional money-making opportunities.
Sky Sports Mobile TV
