WhatAcca.com have compiled the Championship GW5 Betting Tips for our readers
The 2021-22 Championship season has one more round of fixtures until the international break. With Derby County clashing against Nottingham Forest. Both of the Midlands clubs are in troubled waters right no. Although the same can’t be said of West Brom and Fulham who are riding high and already looking like good bets to secure automatic promotion back to the Premier League.
SATURDAY 28TH AUGUST
Derby County 12:30 Nottingham Forest
Derby County were odds-on for relegation at the start of the season although the Rams are making a decent fist of survival thus far. Five points on the board is solid enough and they clash with their arch-rivals who are in dire straits after four straight defeats. Chris Hughton will want to stop the rot and a point would do that.
BEST BET: Draw
Barnsley 15:00 Birmingham City
Barnsley let a 2-0 lead slip at QPR to only get a point and they must now face a Birmingham side who are fresh from thrashing Luton 5-0. Lee Bowyer is getting a tune out of the Blues although the Tykes will be determined to stay on the front foot and we’re expecting both sides to find the net.
BEST BET: BTTS Yes
Fulham 15:00 Stoke City
Stoke City are matching Fulham and West Brom stride for stride at this moment in tim. With the Potters now heading to Craven Cottage for their toughest assignment to date. Michael O’Neill’s side are finding different ways to get positive results and they will have their sights firmly fixed on securing a point from this one.
BEST BET: Draw
Luton Town 15:00 Sheffield United
Nathan Jones saw his team destroyed at home to Birmingham last weekend. Although they have an opportunity to bounce back against a Blades side near the foot of the Championship table. Sheffield United were among the pre-season favourites although Slavisa Jokanovic’s side are loitering near the foot of the division.
BEST BET: Luton to win
Preston North End 15:00 Swansea City
Russell Martin saw his Swansea City team claim their first victory of the season at Bristol City and they will head to Deepdale with confidence. While Preston also earned a hard-fought victory against Peterborough. Both teams will want to build on these victories and we can see a low-scoring clash on the cards.
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals
Queens Park Rangers 15:00 Coventry City
Queens Park Rangers have genuine promotion credentials under Mark Warburton this season. They can overcome a Coventry City team who have points on the board but they’re flattering to deceive with the manner of their victories.
BEST BET: QPR to win
Peterborough United 20:00 West Bromwich Albion
There’s no reason to desert a West Brom side who are passing all assignments handed to them at this early point in the season. They should be able to keep Peterborough at arm’s length at London Road. With Valerien Ismael seeing Alex Mowatt, Karlan Grant and Callum Robinson cause opponents all manner of problems.
BEST BET: West Brom
There are nearly always twelve matches in every round of Championship fixtures and that means several betting options. You can choose to bet on the individual football matches or alternatively put together a Championship football accumulator. There is the opportunity to choose different bookmaker odds to get the best possible value when you bet on this popular division.
