Championship betting preview and tips – 4 March 2023

Championship betting tips

There are still lots of Championship issues to be decided this season, with Middlesbrough hoping to get their promotion campaign back on track this weekend. Boro have been a revelation under Michael Carrick and they’ll now hope Sheffield United are sufficiently carried away by their FA Cup adventure to ensure that they can sneak into the automatic places.

Middlesbrough 15:00 Reading

Middlesbrough might have suffered a defeat at West Brom last weekend although we can regard this as a blip considering that Boro have been in such strong form. They should return to winning ways against a Reading side who are often travel-sick.

BEST BET: Middlesbrough to win

Millwall 15:00 Norwich City

Gary Rowett’s side are punching above their weight this season in the Championship and they remain in the conversation as far as a play-off spot is concerned. Norwich have been hit and miss for much of the campaign although we should expect them to play on the front foot under David Wagner.


Rotherham United 15:00 Queens Park Rangers

Gareth Ainsworth will be determined to stop the rot after recently leaving Wycombe to take charge of his beloved QPR. Therefore we should expect the manager to go back to basics and make sure the visitors are defensively sound away at the New York Stadium.

BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals

Sunderland 15:00 Stoke City

Alex Neil decided to jump ship and leave Sunderland for Stoke, although it’s the former who are making a better fist of the Championship season. Tony Mowbray continues to prove his worth at the Stadium of Light and we might expect the Black Cats to boost their promotion hopes by beating the Potters.

BEST BET: Sunderland to win

Watford 15:00 Preston North End

While Watford are actually odds-on to win this clash, we can’t trust Slaven Bilic’s side at this price. The Hornets have struggled for consistency in the Championship this season and they might run into a Preston side who always seem more comfortable on the road than they are at Deepdale.


Wigan Athletic 15:00 Birmingham City

Wigan remain bottom of the Championship table after a recent 2-1 defeat at Preston, with Shaun Maloney now tasked with steering the Latics out of the drop zone. It looks a big ask for the Lancashire side who will aim to stop the rot against an inconsistent Birmingham side, with the Blues having lost four on the bounce.

BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
