All of the WhatAcca.com team have put together a compilation of some of the most viable Football Bets for our readers to enjoy.
SATURDAY 14TH AUGUST – Championship GW2
Peterborough United 12:30 Derby County
Posh suffered a heavy defeat at Luton last weekend and now have a chance to make amends against a youthful Derby side who managed a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield. While it’s hard to be confident about either team winning, we think that both sides can find the net as they go in search of their first league win of the campaign.
BEST BET: BTTS YES
Birmingham City 15:00 Stoke City
While Stoke landed a 3-2 victory over Reading last weekend, we might expect Michael O’Neill’s side to batten down the hatches when they head to St Andrews. This is especially when you consider that they’ll face a Birmingham side who ran a tight ship when claiming a 1-0 victory at Bramall Lane.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Huddersfield Town 15:00 Fulham
Fulham were thwarted when drawing 1-1 with Middlesbrough last weekend although the Cottagers should have been out of sight before Boro managed to equalise at the end of the game. Marco Silva’s side should get the better of a Huddersfield side likely to be scrapping against the drop this term.
BEST BET: Fulham to win
Hull City 15:00 Queens Park Rangers
Although Hull enjoyed a magnificent 4-1 win at Preston last weekend, they might have been flattered by that scoreline against modest opposition. Queens Park Rangers played out a tight 1-1 draw with Millwall and we expect Mark Warburton’s side to prove too strong over ninety minutes.
BEST BET: QPR to win
Middlesbrough 15:00 Bristol City
Neil Warnock and Nigel Pearson will look to tactically outthink each other in this clash at the Riverside Stadium, with the former delighted to see his team claim a 1-1 draw at Fulham, while Bristol City had the same scoreline against Blackpool. We think this could be a low-scoring affair and no quarter being given by either rearguard.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Nottingham Forest 15:00 AFC Bournemouth
Nottingham Forest showed a lack of ambition when taking the lead at Coventry on Sunday and that came back to haunt them after they were beaten 2-1 by the Sky Blues. Chris Hughton will have had some stern words with his team, while Bournemouth will be full of attacking invention if last weekend’s 2-2 draw against West Brom is any sort of evidence.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
West Bromwich Albion 15:00 Luton Town
Luton Town enjoyed an excellent 3-0 win over Peterborough last weekend and we think they can pass a sterner examination at The Hawthorns. Nathan Jones’ side could be promotion dark horses this term, with Fred Onyedinma enjoying a dream debut. The Baggies were lively when drawing 2-2 at Bournemouth although there were defensive shortcomings.
BEST BET: Draw or Luton
Swansea City 20:00 Sheffield United
Swansea and Sheffield United both suffered a defeat in their opening match and both managers will want to get a point on the board here. Russell Martin will need time to work his magic at the Liberty Stadium, while the same applies to Slavisa Jokanovic who will have now realised that Sander Berge is the key man for the Blades this term.
