Championship Betting Tips: Derby, Wednesday and Boro set for wins?
Betting preview and odds for tonight’s Championship football
It’s not just the Champions League on the agenda tonight. There are also six crucial matches from the Championship to get stuck into, including Bristol City v West Bromwich Albion.
We’ve provided tips for five of this evening’s second-tier matches below.
Blackburn Rovers v Derby County
Derby are hitting form at just the right time. Frank Lampard’s men are unbeaten in five matches and travel to take on a Blackburn team that has lost nine of their last 11 in the league.
That suggests a Rams win at 6/4. Given that Rovers have lost each of their last four by a goal-to-nil at Ewood Park, it’s also 8/1 about a 1-0 Derby win. Alternatively we go 19/4 for County to Win and Under 2.5 Goals in the match.
Bristol City v West Bromwich Albion
Ashton Gate isn’t an easy place to go. Only Leeds United and Birmingham City have won in the league in the West Country since November, with City’s last two home matches ending in draws.
Preston North End v Leeds United
Leeds can’t afford to slip-up at Deepdale. The Whites are one point adrift of Sheffield United following Saturday’s surprise 1-0 reverse at Birmingham City. This one could be tight too.
Tonight’s hosts may have lost two on the bounce in the league. But they haven’t lost back-to-back matches at home since September. There’s 23/10 about the Draw under the lights.
Sheffield Wednesday v Nottingham Forest
There’s nothing wrong with Forest’s home form. It’s their away record that’s seeing their play-off bid fall by the wayside. Martin O’Neill’s men are winless on the road in 13 matches since November.
Bolton Wanderers v Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough have been on a torrid run of late. But that should end against beleaguered Bolton. The Trotters are eight points adrift of safety and have lost 11 of their last 15 matches.
Frontman Ashley Fletcher had been in decent form prior to Middlesbrough’s rotten recent run. He’s 9/4 to rediscover his scoring touch against the division’s second leakiest defence.
