Saturday’s Championship Betting Tips – Bristol City to see off Birmingham and spoils shared at The New Den

Championship betting tips

This weekend’s Championship betting tips come from the 3pm kick-offs on Saturday 5th December and they including Norwich vs Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall vs Derby.

League leaders Norwich had their unbeaten run halted last weekend and then they suffered a shock loss to Luton Town in midweek. That match features alongside Blackburn’s game with Brentford where one of the in-form players in the Championship is predicted to score again.

Millwall and Derby to battle at The New Den, Birmingham travel to Bristol City and Reading host Nottingham Forest in the three other matches for this weekend’s Championship tips.


Championship Previews for Saturday

  • Norwich vs Sheffield Wednesday
  • Bristol City vs Birmingham City
  • Millwall vs Derby
  • Brentford vs Blackburn
  • Reading vs Nottingham Forest


Norwich v Sheffield Wednesday

Sheffield Wednesday or Draw – 5/6 with Paddy Power.

Norwich’s fantastic 10 game unbeaten run finally came to an end when they were defeated 3-1 away from home by Luton. Tony Pulis continued his job of steadying the ship as new manager of Sheffield Wednesday with a 1-1 home draw to Reading, that draw was Sheffield Wednesday’s 4th out of their last 5 games. Norwich were without 10 first-team players for their trip to Luton, and you get the feeling their enormous injury list will start having a detrimental effect on the teams performance, expect a very stubborn Tony Pulis side to get a positive result from their trip to Carrow Road on Saturday.


Bristol City v Birmingham City

Bristol City to Win and Under 2.5 goals – 11/4 with Paddy Power.

Bristol City are in terrific form of late with 4 wins out of their last 6 games which has led them to 3rd in the league and they come into this game off a tenacious 2-1 away win at QPR in midweek. They welcome struggling Birmingham City to Ashton Gate on Saturday. Aitor Karanka will desperately be working on the training ground with his players, his side are winless in 6 straight games; drawing 3 and losing 3, they were defeated by Barnsley 2-1 at home last time out in midweek. Bristol City tend to keep it pretty tight at home, 5 out of their last 6 games played at Ashton Gate have seen under 2.5 goals and expect the same again here in a narrow win for Dean Holden’s men.


Millwall v Derby

Draw and Under 2.5 goals – 5/2 with Paddy Power.

The side with the most draws in the league Millwall welcome struggling Derby to the Den on Saturday and both sides are desperately in need of a win. Millwall are winless in 7 straight Championship games; drawing 5 and losing 2, whilst Derby are winless in 11 straight games; losing 6 and drawing 5. Confidence will no doubt be a real issue in this game, and with pressure on both clubs, this is a game neither side can afford to lose so except stalemate in a low-scoring affair.


Brentford v Blackburn

Adam Armstrong to score anytime – 7/5 with Bet365.

Brentford v Blackburn sees the two top scorers of the Championship clash here,  Ivan Toney’s goals (13) has helped his side go on a 8 game unbeaten run and help them climb to 6th in the table, whilst Adam Armstrong’s goals (14)  has helped his side go on a 6 game unbeaten run and to 9th in the Championship. It’s tit for tat with these two brilliant goal scorers, it will be no surprise if both get on the scoresheet.


Reading v Nottingham Forest (12.30pm)

Reading to score Over 1.5 goals – 13/8 with Bet365.

After a poor run of form on the underside of the international break, Veljko Paunović will be pleased with how his side have bounced back after the international break, they have lost once, drawn twice and picked up a victory. Chris Hughton’s honeymoon period at Nottingham Forest is over, after a good start his side are now winless in 4 straight Championship games; losing 3 on the bounce and last time out registering a goalless draw at home to Watford. Reading are slowly picking up the form which saw them rise to the top of the table and expect them to notch up a few goals against a struggling Forest side.
