The Championship – Betting Tips
The Championship Betting Tips – 19th – 22nd October, 2018
The following are betting tips for selected fixtures in The Championship, covering matches taking place between the 19th October and the 22nd October 2018
Blackburn vs Leeds
Leeds have hit a road block in recent league outings; five points from the last twelve on offer have seen them fall to third in the league behind the pace setters Sheffield United and West Brom. Blackburn’s home form at Ewood Park may play into the hands of Leeds. The hosts have won just one and drawn four of their home fixtures; Leeds still haven’t suffered defeat on the road. Leeds still look tight at the back despite their sticky patch, and a win at Ewood Park would see them top the table – if only for a couple of hours.

Brentford vs Bristol City
Brentford are one of four sides without a win in their last five outings – not a statistic that would usually be tagged on a side in seventh place. Four of those five were draws, so the Bees have managed to cling onto their playoff push despite pressure from Derby, Norwich and Blackburn. Bristol City are another of those four teams without a win in five, meaning Saturday’s fixture has added importance with two sides desperate for three points. All of Brentford’s four wins have come at home this season; expect a fifth victory as Bristol are undone by fluid interplay.

Ipswich Town vs QPR
QPR’s season isn’t turning into the car crash feared after their start to the campaign. Rangers now sit in eighteenth after picking up a win and a draw in their last two outings. Ipswich are struggling at the foot of the Championship. Just one win – away in Swansea – in their twelve league games has begun to ask huge questions of Paul Hurst who took over in the summer. I can’t see many goals in this one; picking the draw would show the best value in the outright markets in a balanced matchup.

Nottingham Forest vs Norwich
Forest are building nicely into this season. After a placid start, Karanka’s side have pulled together eleven points from the last twelve available, now just six points off the Championship summit. Their next two fixtures are kind to the Reds, with a chance for them to push into the top three. Norwich are also building nicely into this season, however, the Canaries will be disappointed still from their 1-0 loss to Stoke last time out. There was only one goal in the two fixtures between these sides last season; a 1-0 home win would’t be a shock.
Nottm Forest to win @ 2.40 with Marathon Bet | Stake £10, return £24.00
Nottm Forest to win 1-0 @ 9.00 with Sporting Bet | Stake £10, return £90.00
Stoke vs Birmingham
Stoke are coming into form as they look to leave their start of the season as a distant memory. Back-to-back wins against Norwich and Bolton have seen them up to fourteenth as they look to stay afloat during a tricky run of fixtures. Birmingham are slowly turning their form around. They are one of four teams without a loss in their last five matches; the only side in the bottom half to boast this. With eight draws so far, a lack of potency up front has proved their downfall; they’ll be confident in scoring against Stoke’s vulnerable defence.
Both teams to score @ 1.95 with Ladbrokes | Stake £10, return £19.50
