Sky Bet Championship predictions

 This weekend throws up nine Sky Bet Championship fixtures on Saturday 27th June and you can see the best 5 betting tips for those matches below.

There is still a lot to play for in the Championship with Leeds and West Brom fighting it out to be crowned Champions and the race for the play-offs really hotting up. Just three points separate Preston in 6th and Derby in 12th so we can expect a lot more twists and turns in the remaining matches this season.

At the other end of the table, just eight points separate bottom club Luton Town and 12th place Wigan Athletic. It is very close at both ends and every match is vital now. See what our Championship predictions for this weekend are below and find out who are the best bookmakers to use on each betting tip.


Championship Predictions 27/06/20

Leeds vs Fulham

Betting Tip – Under 2.5 goals scored: 10/11 with Bet365.

Both sides come into this fixture off disappointing 2-0 defeats; Leeds fell at the hands of Cardiff, whilst Fulham suffered a damaging defeat to their West London rivals Brentford. This is a crucial game for both sides. Leeds are currently occupying an automatic promotion spot in 2nd place, 7 points clear of Fulham in 3rd. A win for Leeds here would go a long way in securing top-flight football next season. Use the bet365 2-up promotion for this weekend and get paid out as a winner if your team goes 2-0 ahead.

Leeds have seen under 2.5 goals in 8 of there last 9 Championship games, whilst Fulham have seen under 2.5 goals in there last 5 straight Championship games. With what’s at stake expect a nervy cagey affair with possibly a single goal taking the 3 points.


Swansea vs Luton

Betting Tip – Swansea -1: 15/8 with Paddy Power.

Swansea continued their playoff push with a fantastic 3-0 away win to Middlesbrough last time out. They’re only one point behind a playoff spot and they will be looking to close the gap when they welcome bottom of the table Luton Town to the Liberty Stadium this weekend. Luton have steadied the ship in recent games, they’re unbeaten in 4 games, drawing the last 3. But overall they have been dreadful this season. They face an uphill task when they travel to South Wales especially with their current away record. They have lost 15 out of 19 away games played this season, expect their poor away record to continue to a solid Swansea side chasing promotion.

Stoke vs Middlesborough

Betting Tip – Stoke to win to Nil: 12/5 with Bet365.

Stoke City extended their unbeaten run to 5 games with a 1-1 draw at Reading, pushing them further clear of the relegation zone. All change for Middlesbrough, with them currently only one place outside the relegation zone, they have sacked their manager Johnathan Woodgate and replaced him immediately with Neil Warnock. Middlesbrough suffered a morale-dampening 3-0 home defeat to Swansea last time out. Stoke have been really solid on their own patch of late, winning 4 out of their last 5 games played at the Bet365 stadium. Warnock wouldn’t have had much time to work on the things he would have liked to, expect Stoke to continue their brilliant home form of late and secure a narrow victory without reply.


Birmingham City vs Hull City

Betting Tip – Birmingham city to win: 8/11 with Paddy Power.

Birmingham’s first game since Pep Clotet announced he will be leaving at the end of the season saw them get a pleasing 0-0 draw away to promotion favourites West Brom. It looks like the players will be giving their all to give Clotet a good send-off. They host Hull City on Saturday who have been in diabolical form, subsequently seeing them drop into the relegation zone. Hull are winless in 12 Championship games; losing 10 and drawing 2, eyebrows were raised in January when Hull City decided to sell their star men without replacements and it looks like it has proved costly. Expect Birmingham to pile on the misery for Hull with a win at St Andrew’s.


Preston vs Cardiff

Betting Tip – Both teams to score: 4/5 with Paddy Power.

Playoff hopefuls Preston and Cardiff square off Saturday lunchtime in the view of strengthening their grip on the playoffs. Preston are currently occupying the last of the playoff spots on goal difference ahead of Cardiff in 7th. At home this season Preston have seen goals at both ends consistently, 5 out of the last 6 home games Preston have played has seen both teams score, expect the trend here to continue. Cardiff will be in a confident mood after defeating Leeds 2-0 last time out. Both teams have scored over 50 goals so far this season expect them both to add to their tally here.
