Home treble worth considering in open Championship

| 02.04.2011

Winning home games is pivotal more at this time of the season than ever, so 11/1 looks a tremendous price on the Championship treble of Crystal Palace, Bristol City and Middlesbrough all taking maximum points on their own patches.

Crystal Palace are unbeaten in their last 12 home games and will need to maintain this run to give themselves further breathing space from the relegation places in the Championship.

Meanwhile, Barnsley are the visitors to Selhurst Park and they have failed to win any of their last six away games.

Furthermore, only Crystal Palace have won fewer than the three away fixtures won by Barnsley in the league this season.

Crystal Palace are 6/5 to beat Barnsley for the sixth time at home in seven attempts, with the visitors and the draw both quoted at 23/10.

Bristol City have begun to find their best form of late and head into their home game with Doncaster as one of the form teams in the division with five victories in their last six games.

On the flip side, Doncaster have been in freefall down the Championship table after winning just two of their last 18 games, while they have lost seven of their last 11 on the road.

Bristol City are 10/11 in the Championship betting to beat Doncaster, with the unlikely away triumph priced at 3/1.

Middlesbrough are the riskiest of the three predictions at home to Leicester, but the recent slump in form of the visitors can help the hosts edge victory.

Leicester have lost three of their last four games, while Middlesbrough are on a two-game winning streak at home.

Middlesbrough’s betting odds are 13/8 to beat Leicester, with the visitors the slight outsiders at 8/5.

A £20 stake on Crystal Palace beating Barnsley 3-0 would return £360. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
