Championship betting tips: Sky Blues test for Baggies
Championship betting tips and odds
With top-two Fulham and Bournemouth meeting at Craven Cottage on Friday night, the chasing pack have a chance to move closer to the automatic promotion places.
The Cottagers and the Cherries have both dropped points in recent weeks, although the latter are still seven points clear of third-placed QPR.
Here, we take a look at three matches being played on Saturday in our Championship betting tips, starting with a Lancashire derby.
Blackburn v Preston
Blackburn have climbed into fourth place on the back of five wins in seven games and head to Bournemouth next Saturday.
Tony Mowbray’s side have lost just twice at Ewood Park this season – to West Brom and Fulham – and are the joint highest scorers at home in the division.
Coventry v West Brom
Coventry sit two places and one point below West Brom but hold the joint-best home record in the division with 23 points from 10 games.
The Sky Blues netted twice inside the final five minutes to grab a 2-2 draw at Bournemouth on Saturday – their third successive stalemate, with another priced at 11/5.

A four-game winless run has seen West Brom fall nine points behind leaders Fulham but they are 27/20 to get back to winning ways.
The Baggies have also gone three matches without a goal which is surprising given the attacking talent available to manager Valerien Ismael.
They are 12/5 to draw a blank again in Championship betting tips.
Nottingham Forest v Peterborough
Five draws in a six-game unbeaten run has stalled Nottingham Forest’s push towards the play-off places.
Peterborough have the worst away record in the division, losing nine of their 10 games. They are without a win in six games and have scored just once during that run.
In the #GetAPrice market, Forest to win either half, Forest over 1.5 goals in the match and Forest to keep a clean sheet catches the eye at 7/2.
