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.

They are 23/20 to secure the three points and 23/10 if you add over 2.5 goals to a home win in Championship betting tips.

Preston’s two wins on the road have come at Bournemouth and Middlesbrough – both ending 2-1, which is available at 10/1. They are also 12/5 for the win and 23/10 to pick up a point.

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.

Mark Robins’ side are 21/10 to return to winning ways and 4/1 to win to nil given West Brom’s recent struggles in front of goal.

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.

Forest have lost just once in 12 matches under manager Steve Cooper and are 4/5 to pick up all three points here and 5/2 for another share of the spoils.

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.

We go 7/2 for them to leave with all three points and 27/20 for Posh to draw another blank in front of goal in Championship betting tips.

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.
