WhatAcca.com have compiled the Championship GW4 Betting Tips for our readers.
We’re fast approaching Game Week 4 of the EFL Championship season, with Fulham and Stoke City leading the way at the top of the table. The Cottagers are absolutely flying after two consecutive away victories. We’re on hand to provide a Championship betting prediction for their clash against Hull along with several other matches in the English second flight.
SATURDAY 21ST AUGUST
AFC Bournemouth 15:00 Blackpool
Bournemouth might outclass Blackpool at the Vitality Stadium, with the Cherries looking in good nick under Scott Parker. It was a 2-2 draw against promotion-chasing West Brom before a 2-1 win at Nottingham Forest and they can take advantage against a team who are slightly out of their depth in the Championship right now. The Tangerines seem short of goals since landing promotion from League One.
BEST BET: Bournemouth to win
Cardiff City 15:00 Millwall
Both teams have scored in all four of Millwall’s matches to date, with Gary Rowett’s side offering a goal threat and we saw Benik Afobe open his account for the Lions, despite the south London team falling short against Fulham. This is another tough assignment against a Cardiff side who battled gamely from 2-0 down to land a point at Peterborough and this could be a lively match.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
Coventry City 15:00 Reading
Reading have been involved in some high-scoring clashes already, with the Royals having been defeated 3-2 by Stoke City and Bristol City which illustrates that they take an attack-minded approach in games but can be left open defensively. Coventry matches have been relatively low-scoring by comparison, although they will regard this clash as one they can win and we’ll back three goals or more.
BEST BET: Over 2.5 Goals
Derby County 15:00 Middlesbrough
Derby County are in a financial mess and are also transfer embargoed. Without wanting to kick Wayne Rooney’s team when they are down, they are worth opposing considering that Colin Kazim-Richards has joined Jason Knight on the sidelines, with the manager having to plumb the depths of the Under-21 squad for numbers. Neil Warnock’s Boro look streetwise enough to claim a victory.
BEST BET: Middlesbrough to win
Fulham 15:00 Hull City
Marco Silva is already getting a tune out of a Fulham side who have seven points on the board and they have eight goals scored already, with Aleksandar Mitrovic proving to be a typically attacking weapon in this division. Newly-promoted Hull enjoyed a 4-1 win at Preston before being turned over 3-0 at home to QPR and they could be overturned against another quality opponent. Why not also consider using the betting on corners side bet as this can often provide great results, there is likely to be a few corners in this game!
BEST BET: Fulham + Over 2.5 Goals
Preston North End 15:00 Peterborough United
Preston have had a horrid start to the season after three straight defeats and we’re surprised they are short priced favourites to overcome a Peterborough side who have sprang to life since losing at Luton. Posh came from behind to beat Derby before a 2-2 draw against Cardiff and we think that more goals could be the order of the day.
BEST BET: Over 2.5 Goals
Stoke City 15:00 Nottingham Forest
Stoke City are quickly shedding their tag of being a boring Championship team and a 3-2 win over Reading was followed by a 3-1 victory away to Swansea. In between was a goalless draw against Birmingham and their unbeaten start means they’ll be confident against a Nottingham Forest team who have lost twice already this term.
BEST BET: Stoke City to win
