Saturday’s Championship Betting Tips

  • Reading vs Bristol City
  • Derby vs Wycombe
  • Norwich vs Coventry
  • Rotherham vs Bournemouth
  • Blackburn vs Barnsley


City to be amongst the goals again


Bristol City to score over 1.5 goals – 13/8 with Bet365.

Reading finally stopped the rot of 4 straight defeats with a hard-earned 1-1 draw at Millwall in midweek. Reading are currently incapable of keeping clean sheets and this is a big cause for concern for Veljko Paunović. Bristol City are unbeaten in their last 4 games winning 3 and drawing 1, they will fancy themselves big time against out of form Reading. Reading have conceded 16 goals in their last 6 matches and expect Bristol city to add to that tally with a couple of goals.


Rooney to be made to wait for first win


Draw – 5/2 with Bet365.

The Derby faithful would have been hoping the sacking of Phillip Cocu and the appointment of Wayne Rooney as interim manager would have rejuvenated the side and brought about positive results, however, they have continued the free fall and currently sit bottom of the Championship. They were first defeated by Bristol City and followed that up with a resounding 3-0 defeat to Middlesborough in midweek. Wycombe have shown great fight of late and are determined to prove they belong at this level, they’re on a run of back to back draws and have picked up 8 points from their last 5 games. Derby’s confidence will no doubt be at rock bottom and will certainly have an effect on how they approach this crucial match with Wycombe, expect both sides to battle to a bore draw.


Canaries to keep their place at the top


Norwich -1 – 13/8 with Paddy Power.

Norwich seem invincible at the moment, they’re unbeaten in 9 straight Championship games; winning 7 and drawing 2 and are looking like a real formidable force. Coventry will be going into this game with confidence after defeating Cardiff 1-0 in midweek, this result has pushed them up to 21st place one place outside the relegation zone. Expect table toppers to have far too much for Coventry and show exactly why they sit top of the league.

Cherries to win high scoring contest


Bournemouth to Win and BTTS – 3/1 with Bet365.

Rotherham are struggling for form of late, they have only picked up 2 wins in their last 11 outings in all competitions and are on a run of back to back defeats, the latest coming at QPR 3-2 in midweek. 2nd place Bournemouth have made great strides of late and manager Jason Tindal is really stamping his mark on this Bournemouth team, they play silky football and are getting the results to match. They’re on a run of 3 straight wins and have only lost once in their last 11 matches. Expect Bournemouth to be at full throttle at Rotherham on Saturday and pick up 3 points in an entertaining game.


Rovers’ main man to carry on scoring streak


Adam Armstrong to score anytime – 20/21 with Bet365.

It comes as no surprise Blackburn picked up form once again as soon as Adam Armstrong started firing again, the leading Championship goal scorer has scored 3 goals in his last 3 appearances and Blackburn have picked up 7/9 points in the process. Barnsley have seen an upsurge in performances ever since the arrival of Valérien Ismaël, this has been evident in results Barnsley have won 3 out of their last 5 games. Expect Adam Armstrong to add to his tally of 12 goals and help his side pick up 3 points.

Blackburn saw off Preston 3-0 in midweek in an impressive win.
