Championship contenders Cherries, Watford, Rams in tasty 10/3 treble

| 18.04.2015

Three of the Championship’s current top six feature in a tasty 10/3 treble with Coral this weekend. Back wins for Bournemouth, Watford and Derby County over inferior opposition to get enhanced odds.

Eddie Howe’s Cherries hosts Sheffield Wednesday, the Hornets battle Birmingham City and Steve McClaren takes his Rams to Huddersfield. Each of the three teams in our boosted price bet are individually even-money or shorter odds-on chances for victories, so taking the enhanced price is the best way to get value.

See below for specific reasons why these clubs with Premier League ambitions can all win.

Bournemouth v Sheffield Wednesday
South coast side Bournemouth have beaten Wednesday in six of the 11 league meetings over the last dozen years. With the Cherries sat in top spot, 25 points better off than the Owls, they are thus odds-on 4/11 favourites for three points here.

Coach Howe recently stated how ‘privileged’ he feels to manage Bounremouth. “Our dressing room is always a special place to be,” he said. “I think we have a unique atmosphere and I feel privileged to be in there leading the team.”

French forward Yann Kermorgant has five in his last seven, so he’s a 6/5 anytime scorer chance. Cherries leading marksman Callum Wilson, meanwhile, has netted in each of his last three, so is odds-on at 4/5 in the same market.

Watford v Birmingham
Hertfordshire side Watford are only outside the automatic promotion places on goal difference, and their opponents the Blues have seen their season peter out somewhat. This explains why the Hornets are odds-on 4/9 favourites to win.

Watford’s leading goal getter Troy Deeney has four in his last four against Birmingham, so he is odds-on at 10/11 to strike again anytime, or a 7/2 shout to score first.

Huddersfield v Derby
The Rams have put three past the Terriers in three of their last four head-to-heads, so McClaren’s men are even-money for an away win. Scotland winger Johnny Russell has netted in both of the previous two fixtures between these two, so is 10/3 to do so again.
