The Championship games to back in your Saturday accumulator

| 27.08.2011

There are some top quality match-ups amidst this weekend’s Championship fixtures and we’re not afraid to take them on in our Championship treble.

West Ham take on Nottingham Forest live on Sky Sports on Sunday and Leicester play host to table toppers Southampton on Saturday, but it’s West Ham who we like the most out of the four.

Our Championship treble pays just under 8/1 but combine them with the best bets in League One and League Two to enhance the accumulator odds.

Middlesbrough to beat Coventry @ 4/6

This looks as if it’s the banker in the Championship this weekend considering Coventry have picked up just one point from four games and Middlesbrough have 10.

With home advantage it’s difficult to see Tony Mowbray’s side being beaten and Coventry haven’t won at the Riverside since 1993.

Middlesbrough are on a six-match unbeaten streak this season while Coventry are yet to taste victory in their six games.

Brighton to beat Peterborough @ 10/11

Peterborough have made a strong start to life in the Championship but are yet to win away from home and Brighton can use that home advantage to their benefit.

Brighton did the double over Peterborough last season, scoring three on each occasion and Gus Poyet’s side are coming off the back of a morale-boosting win against Sunderland in midweek.

A 3-0 Brighton win is priced at 12/1 but a 2-1 victory for Brighton looks the likelier result at 7/1.

West Ham to beat Nottingham Forest @ 6/4

Two of the pre-season title favourites line-up on Sunday in the biggest game in the Championship this weekend.

Both teams have started ok but both teams have struggled to win on their home patch.

West Ham, with their two away wins this season, play better on the road than they do at home and Forest will have to continue to wait for their first home win of the season.
