Derby, Middlesbrough, Norwich a fine 13/2 Championship treble

| 07.03.2015

With the Premier League, one match apart, on hiatus, attentions turn to who might be in the top-flight next term. Coral offer enhanced odds of 13/2 for Championship promotion contenders Derby County, Middlesbrough and Norwich City all to win.

Steve McClaren’s men host Birmingham City in an East meets West Midlands match-up, Boro travel to Nottingham Forest and the Canaries make the trip to Millwall.

Each of these three featured teams in this tasty treble are either odds-on or short-price favourites for victory so, to ensure the best value, take our boosted price bet.

Read on below to discover specific reasons why this special should come off.

Derby v Birmingham
As the Rams battered the Blues 4-0 in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day, McClaren’s men are odds-on 8/13 favourites to do a double over their Midlands rivals.

Scotland forward Johnny Russell scored last in that romp, and is a 6/1 shot to have the final say again. Manchester United loanee Jesse Lingard faces his former club here, and is 6/4 to come back to haunt Birmingham by netting anytime.

Nottingham Forest v Middlesbrough
Aitor Karanka also steered Boro to a handsome Boxing Day victory (3-0) over Forest, and now the Teesside outfit top the Championship table. This explains why they are 6/4 favourites for victory in Nottingham.

Ex-Belgium international Jelle Vossen netted in the reverse fixture, and grabbed the last goal in his previous outing, a 3-0 win over Millwall. Odds of 6/1 say he shall have the final say again, while Vossen is a safer 7/4 in the anytime market.

Millwall v Norwich
The Canaries hit Ian Holloway’s Lions for six on Boxing Day, and hosts Millwall are second-bottom. Norwich have been rampant under new boss Alex Neil, recording six wins in the last seven, and that illustrates why they are odds-on 5/6 favourites for victory in The Den.

In-form midfielder Bradley Johnson bagged a brace in the reverse fixture, and has three goals in his last five coming into this one. Back his box-to-box abilities to come good and him to score again anytime at 5/2.
