Championship Accumulator: Millwall stars of our 31/1 fourfold

| 20.10.2012

Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman made some rather half-hearted attempts at distancing himself from the Bolton job this week; the tell-tale sign that the bigger club have turned his head.

If he’s got half an eye on the Reebok dugout, Millwall could be in line to cause an upset in this one. They’re 13/5 is the largest contributor to our 31/1 Championship fourfold on the weekend that one of Europe’s most watched leagues returns from international hiatus.

Millwall to beat Crystal Palace @ 13/5

The slightest disruption can cause all kinds of problems in football and if Palace’s Scottish supremo wants out, his players will have picked up on the bad vibes already.

Their form has been magnificent in recent weeks, with six wins in seven leaving Phil Gartside circling like a great white around a baby sea lion, but that will soon change if any behind the scenes disharmony is detected.

Millwall don’t keep clean sheets, but they know where the goal is and are unbeaten in three going into this clash. Furthermore, they haven’t lost any of their last four visits to Selhurst Park, winning twice by a 1-0 scoreline.

Hull to beat Ipswich @ 5/6

This price is unbelievably generous given how bad Ipswich are and, with Steve Bruce’s Tigers pushing for promotion, a slip up here is tough to imagine.

The lowly Tractor Boys are languishing in 23rd spot in the Championship and haven’t picked up a win in nine successive games in all competitions.

Hull picked up a win last time out but were defeated in their two previous home games, one a surprise loss to Peterborough before going down to one of the division’s strongest in Blackpool.

Ipswich are weak at the back, keeping just one team in 12 at bay, while up front they don’t offer much either; a has/never-been Michael Chopra representing their most potent goal threat. If Hull turn up at the KC Stadium they’ll have too much for Paul Jewell’s relegation fodder.

Watford to beat Peterborough @ 4/5

Much like Ipswich, if not even more so, Peterborough are relegation material and, after a mini revival of two wins after eight straight reverses, order was restored when Nottingham Forest claimed the spoils at London Road.

Watford play the way you’d imagine under the guidance of Gianfranco Zola and deserved much more than their defeat to Middlesbrough last time out. Were it not for an inexplicable refereeing decision to reduce the Hornets to 10 men, they would have got the win their first-half showing warranted.

If they reproduce a shade of that form against the worst team in the division then they will cruise this one, without doubt.

Wolves to beat Huddersfield @ 13/8

Huddersfield don’t score goals at the John Smith’s Stadium, which gives a solid, consistent performer like Wolves every chance of taking the points home from west Yorkshire.

The Terriers have started the season impressively and sit just two points behind Wolves in sixth, yet they’ve only found the back of the net six times in front of their own fans; a record that only seven sides have failed to better.

Stale Solbakken’s charges have won three away games on the spin, keeping a hat-trick of shut outs in that time and have only failed to score once on the road in league action this term.
