Brighton v Sheffield Wednesday Betting Tips: Seagulls to bounce back under the lights

Friday’s Championship match sees two promotion hopefuls comes head-to-head as Brighton & Hove Albion host Sheffield Wednesday at The Amex. Brighton suffered a shock loss at Preston North End in their last league match which meant that they lost their position of Championship leaders to rivals Newcastle United. However, they are still just one point off top spot and are firmly in the automatic promotion places, ahead of third place Leeds United by a huge six points. The Seagulls are the most solid side in the whole of England having conceded just 17 goals in 25 league matches – a…

Preston v Brighton Betting Tips: Hughton’s men to once again deliver the goods

Off the back of being dealt a 90th minute hammer-blow from Arsenal in the FA Cup, Preston welcome league leaders Brighton to Deepdale on Saturday afternoon as the focus of both switches back to matters in the Championship. The hosts haven’t exactly been at their best recently, especially at home. Just win one in their last six on home soil is one of the main reasons as to why Preston have failed to break free from their mid-table shackles. As for the visitors, Brighton have been in quite scintillating form lately. Five league wins on the bounce has seen the…

Wolves v Aston Villa Betting Tips: Bookings the way to go at Molineux

Saturday’s late Championship kick-off is a West Midlands derby between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Aston Villa at Molineux. Former Villa manager Paul Lambert has turned things around at Wolves having lost just once in their last four league matches, pushing them up to 16th and five points clear of the bottom three, whilst they also caused one of the upsets of the round in the FA Cup at the weekend as they recorded a 2-0 victory away at Premier League Stoke City. Wolves have realised that defence is not their strong point, as shown by the fact they have conceded 34…

Burton v Wigan Betting Tips: Hosts ready to take three points at The Pirelli

This Championship match is a relegation clash between newly-promoted Burton Albion and Wigan Athletic – both of whom are in terrible form at the moment. Burton are playing in this league for the first time in their history but are arguably making a good fist of it as they sit outside the drop-zone with 25 games gone. However, a poor recent run of five losses in their last six means they are only outside the bottom three by just a single point. Despite this recent losing streak, overall, the Brewers have actually been pretty good at the back with their…

Leeds v Derby Betting Tips: Monk’s men to continue on the up

This match sees two sides towards the top of the Championship table go head-to-head at Elland Road. It also sees two of the league’s most defensively sound teams go to work on each other. Leeds are currently on a fantastic run having won all but one of their last six matches in all competitions, including a spirited fight back against lower league Cambridge United in the FA Cup on Monday night. This excellent form has put them right in the play-off mix as they currently sit fifth and five points ahead of seventh. Garry Monk’s team have a good balance…

Reading v Q.P.R. Betting Tips: Visitors’ revival to come to an end at Madejski

Thursday’s Championship match sees promotion pushers Reading take on relegation strugglers Queens Park Rangers at The Madejski Stadium. Reading are currently on a fantastic run in the second tier with nine wins in their last 11 matches putting them an impressive third in the table. They may have been hammered 4-0 by Manchester United in their recent FA Cup tie but there is no danger that that will have knocked their confidence going into this match against Q.P.R. Jaap Stam has got his Reading side playing good football and they are an attack-minded side who score goals as proved by…

Birmingham v Brentford Betting Tips: Home joy awaits for Zola

Both of these teams currently reside around the middle of the Championship table, but relatively far apart with five points separating the two sides. Birmingham made one of the shock managerial decisions of recent times when they fired Gary Rowett and replaced him with Gianfranco Zola recently. The Italian managed to get his first point as Birmingham manager after an excellent comeback from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Barnsley on New Year’s Eve following defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Derby County. Zola’s job is to turn Blues into a more attacking side after they relied so heavily…

Leeds v Rotherham Betting Tips: Hosts to prove too good in Yorkshire derby match

Leeds welcome fellow Yorkshire club Rotherham to Elland Road on Monday as two teams who’ve enjoyed contrasting campaigns go head-to-head. These two teams will enjoy a slight advantage over the rest of the division of Monday as both played their last fixture on Thursday evening as opposed to either Friday or Saturday. Leeds continued their strong form by securing a point, although they will disappointed not to have taken all three, away at Villa Park, while Rotherham’s woes continued as they were beaten at home by Burton Albion (1-2). For a team who’re thriving right now, the visit of Rotherham…

Derby v Wigan Betting Tips: Much of the same for The Rams

This match sees two of the Championship’s lowest scorers come head-to-head as Derby County host Wigan Athletic at Pride Park. The return of Steve McLaren to Derby has seen The Rams rise up the Championship table, climbing up to 7th after just one loss in his 12 matches back in charge at Pride Park. Additionally, they have not just been going undefeated, but are picking up vital wins. Before a slight blip against Fulham a couple of weeks ago, Derby had won seven on the bounce – and six of them to nil. They returned to their winning ways last…

Brentford v Norwich Betting Tips: A glut of goals to see out 2016 at Griffin Park

Brentford welcome Norwich to Griffin Park on New Years Eve – a match that looks as though it could be tailor-made for goals. The start of the festive period didn’t treat either of these two teams all that well – Norwich were defeated at the hands of Reading, while Brentford twice had to come from behind against Cardiff to salvage a point in front of their own fans. As the two meet here, the result looks as though it’ll be tough to call, although there’s a feeling that goals could be on the agenda. The duo of bets that stand…

Wolves v QPR Betting Tips: Hopeless run to continue for Holloway

Having found themselves on the right side of a five-goal thriller on Boxing Day, Wolves welcome a QPR side who’re on a downward spiral to Molineux on New Years Eve. In collecting three points on Boxing Day, Saturday’s hosts continued on the up and are slowly but surely turning the corner. Paul Lambert’s men made it two wins in as many matches and have now suffered just the one defeat in their last five. Against a QPR side who seemingly cannot stop themselves from sinking further and further towards the foot of the table, this home match looks to be another…

Brighton v Cardiff City Betting Tips: Purple patch to go on for Murray

Top of the tree Brighton & Hove Albion host struggling Cardiff City in this Championship match. Brighton have finally managed to topple the Newcastle United monopoly of the Championship and currently sit top of the league, two points clear of the Toon Army. This has all been a result of the fantastic run that Chris Hughton’s side have been on recently with The Seagulls winning their last four matches, whilst they have still lost just the two games all season. Chris Hughton performed a masterstroke in the summer when he brought in former Brighton player and Championship poacher Glenn Murray…

Reading v Fulham Betting Tips: Both teams set for attacking joy at Madjeski

Two teams looking towards the play-off places this season go head-to-head on Friday as Reading host Fulham at The Madejski Stadium. Reading are one of the Championship’s in-form sides right now having won eight of their last ten matches which sees them sit in a lofty 3rd place. Manager Jaap Stam, who arrived in the summer, has transformed the way Reading play and, although it took a while to sort, The Royals are now reaping the benefits. Even though they have changed their style to be more attacking, Reading’s goal tally is not that impressive with 33 goals so far…

Two teams who experienced the festive joys of a Boxing Day victory go head-to-head at Villa Park on Thursday evening as Leeds travel to take on Aston Villa. Both of these two are enjoying decent campaigns so far, although it has to be said that Leeds, who are sat firmly in the play-off places in 5th position, have been the better of the two sides. Gary Monk has come into the Yorkshire club this season and seemingly turned things around. There is genuine optimism surrounding the club and it is felt that this could finally be the season that sees…

Brighton & Hove Albion v Queen’s Park Rangers Betting Tips

One of the 27th’s Championship matches looks to be a rather one-sided affair between Brighton & Hove Albion and Queen’s Park Rangers. Along with Newcastle United, Brighton are a team who look like they are pretty much guaranteed promotion at the end of the season with them sitting second and having lost only two league matches out of 22 this season. They managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat at Birmingham City last Saturday – the sign of a team destined for promotion. Chris Hughton’s side were 1-0 down with 10 minutes to go but managed to grab…

Wolves v Bristol City Betting Tips

Wolves and Bristol City are two teams who find themselves somewhat languishing around the lower rungs of that undesirable mid-table region, and, in a division as competitive as the Championship, this is a far from a secure place to be. Considering their current predicaments, this Boxing Day fixture at Molineux is a big game for both and it’s likely that both teams will feel they have a reasonable chance here. Having said this, if we delve a little deeper, there is plenty to suggest that Wolves are the team to be on and it’s fancied that the hosts can make…

Brentford play host to Cardiff at Griffin Park on Boxing Day as two teams, both of whom suffered defeat last time out, will be looking to build momentum in the Championship’s early kick-off ahead of a busy few weeks. Of the two sides it is undoubtedly Brentford who will be happier with their current standing. The hosts sit in 14th position and come into this fixture knowing that home soil is where they’ve been most effective. Cardiff, on the other hand, find themselves down in 20th position, and, although they are five points above the drop-zone, they will definitely be…

Aston Villa v Burton Albion Betting Tip

One of Saturday’s Boxing Day Championship matches is a Midlands derby as Burton Albion visit Aston Villa. Steve Bruce’s arrival at Aston Villa has certainly turned the club. Although they have suffered a couple of losses in the last few weeks, which ended Bruce’s unbeaten start as Villa boss, The Villains picked up a vital away win at Queen’s Park Rangers last weekend, lifting them up to 13th in the league and just six points off the play-offs. Villa were leaking goals prior to Bruce’s appointment and the Geordie has certainly made his team a lot harder to beat. However,…

Huddersfield Town v Nottingham Forest Betting Tips

Unfashionable play-off chasers Huddersfield Town host former European Cup winners and now Championship strugglers Nottingham Forest in this Boxing Day clash. The Terriers had made a lightning start to the season which had thrusted them into the automatic promotion spots, however, they could not keep it up and started going rapidly downhill in a run which brought just one win in eight matches. Fortunately though they are once again peaking at the right time as we enter the busy Christmas schedule having won their last three on the bounce which keeps themselves firmly in fourth position. David Wagner’s side do…

Sunday’s Championship match is between two clubs who have already had to change manager this season yet still find themselves stuck in mid-table Despite appointing Ian Holloway back on 11th November to help boost their season, Queen’s Park Rangers are having a nightmare at the moment having lost their last four league matches which puts them down in 18th and just three points above the relegation zone. It had all started so well under the Bristolian with a 2-1 win against promotion hopefuls Norwich City back in mid-November, however, things have gone rapidly downhill since then and Rangers have plummeted…

West Yorkshire side Leeds welcome West London club Brentford to Elland Road on Saturday afternoon as both look to secure a positive result ahead of the busy festive period. Since dropping down from England’s top tier in 2004, seldom have Leeds fans had anything to get really excited about; however, in recent times, there is genuine optimism surrounding Elland Road and it’s felt, by more than just followers of the club, that The Whites are in with a real shout of returning to the Premier League in the not so distant future. Ahead of this fixture against 13th place Brentford,…

Nottingham Forest v Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips

This match between two Midlands teams should be quite entertaining as games involving either of these two tend to involve a high number of goals. After a disappointing 3-0 loss to Derby County on Sunday, Forest could only muster a 1-1 draw against Preston North End at home on Wednesday night. However, they go up against a Wolverhampton Wanderers side who are struggling a bit at the moment so this could be the perfect match to get back on track. As mentioned on previous tips about Philippe Montanier’s team, they score a lot of goals but also concede a lot…

Norwich City v Huddersfield Town Betting Tip

Friday’s Championship match sees two play-off hopefuls go head-to-head as Huddersfield Town travel to Norwich City. Norwich are currently eighth in the Championship after a rather inconsistent season to date with no back-to-back wins since October. Goals are not a problem for Alex Neil’s men as they’re joint-second in the goal-scoring charts with 36. However, the fact they are leaking plenty of goals at the back means they have been unable to, as of yet at least, put in a proper promotion challenge. Their record of 32 goals conceded in 21 games is the joint-fourth worst in the division. However,…

Queens Park Rangers v Derby County Betting Tips

QPR welcome Derby to Loftus Road on Wednesday night as both teams look for a victory that would be hugely beneficial. The hosts will be keen to put an end to their poor run (three defeats on the bounce) and move away from the relegation-zone, while the visitors are looking to continue their good spell and further cement their position among the play-off places. In recent weeks, only one of these two teams have impressed. Steve McClaren’s Derby are in a rich vein of form right now and have won each of their last six matches (all-competitions). A match against…

Wigan Athletic v Newcastle United Betting Tip

League leaders Newcastle United travel to relegation scrappers Wigan Athletic in what is likely to be a rather one-sided affair on Wednesday night. Wigan are having a bad time at the moment having lost their last two matches. Whilst the gap of two points which separates them from safety is not huge, for a team who is having a bad patch like The Lactics are, it is massive. Goals are undoubtedly the problem for Warren Joyce’s side and they are the division’s lowest scorers with a measly 16 goals in 22 matches. This atrocious record in front of goal shows…

Preston North End v Nottingham Forest Betting Tip

This match between Preston North End and Nottingham Forest could be the most entertaining of the three Championship matches on Wednesday evening. Preston have looked pretty good in recent weeks and have only suffered one defeat in their last five matches. Overall they’ve lost just twice since mid-September, putting them 12th and just four points off the play-off spots which, with 23 games to go, isn’t the worst position to be. The Lilywhites will feel confident that they can keep this good run going on Wednesday as they are currently on a three-match unbeaten run at Deepdale. Additionally, they have…

Blackburn Rovers v Brighton & Hove Albion Betting Tips

22 points separate automatic promotion hopefuls Brighton & Hove Albion and struggling Blackburn Rovers but this match at Ewood Park is of equal importance for both sides. Blackburn had experienced an upturn in fortunes just after the international break as they won two consecutive Championship matches to pull themselves out of the relegation zone, however, since then they have only picked up one point from a possible nine; resulting in a swift drop back down to earth. This kind of form is exactly what the Championship is about, nobody knows what will happen from one game to the next. Goals…
