Championship accumulator: Leeds best bet in our fourfold
Huddersfield are the biggest price of this weekend’s Championship accumulator as they travel to the Lions’ Den as 2/1 outsiders. Should they win, along with Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Wolves, this fourfold will see backers paid out handsomely at 26/1.
Huddersfield to beat Millwall @ 2/1
No team in the division has won more games on the road than the Terriers and only two have outscored them. They lost last time out at Peterborough, but had won the three that preceded it.
Millwall, on the other hand, have only won one of their last eight games and failed to pick up maximum points in three of their last four at home, after squandering a three-goal lead against Birmingham last time out.
In Jermaine Beckford, Huddersfield have the necessary fire-power to end this one on top.
Leeds to beat Birmingham @ 1/1
Lee Clark is struggling to get things going at Birmingham and the pre-season promotion contenders find themselves languishing 12 points off from the head of the pack.
The Blues haven’t picked up a win in three games, while Leeds are seven undefeated in all-comps. Neil Warnock’s men have taken seven points from nine at Elland Road and, given their contrasting form, you’d expect a win for the west Yorkshire club at a very generous price.
Wolves to beat Charlton @ 3/4
Charlton were a side many fancied as dark horses for promotion, though they have failed to live up to the standard Southampton and Norwich have set in recent seasons and a scrap at the wrong end of the table looks most likely.
They are unbeaten in three away days ahead of their trip to Wolves, but the hosts are reliable under Stale Solbakken and have the qualities to see the Addicks off.
They’ve been solid against the struggling sides this season, beating Peterborough, Barnsley and Ipswich comprehensively and can expect to add Charlton to that list once this game has concluded.
Nottingham Forest to beat Barnsley @ 6/4
Oakwell has been the average kind of fortress the Tykes require it to be if they are to achieve the lower-mid table mediocrity they have grown accustomed to in their unspectacular existence.
With their home fans being treated to all of five goals this season, Forest need only to notch a couple of goals then they should have this one sewn up.
Brian O’Driscoll has the wealthy City Ground club plodding along nicely, sitting two points outside the play-off zone after 12 and are unbeaten in four going into this one, whereas Barnsley have netted just twice in their last four outings.
