Championship stats and tips

Friday 23rd February

Coventry v Preston - Double Chance - away win or draw

Coventry City have found something of a bogey team in Preston North End in the league in recent years. The two clubs have met on 20 occasions since 2008, and Preston North End have remained unbeaten in them all. Friday's game at The Coventry Building Society Arena could be a really difficult one for Mark Robins & co.

Leeds v Leicester - Win / Draw / Win - home win

Leicester City will, it could be argued, have the opportunity to play without pressure as face a tough trip to Elland Road. Home wins occur regularly in the Championship, and it's assumed by many that Leeds United and their boss D. Farke will deliver exactly that as they face E. Maresca's side on Friday night. 7 of our members have bet on the home win, with top odds of 2.05, and our 48.57 gives a 48.57% chance of them winning with their bets.

Saturday 24th February

Blackburn v Norwich - Over / Under 2.5 Goals - over

If you fancy a thriller on Saturday afternoon, then the clash between Blackburn Rovers and Norwich City could be the one for you. J. Eustace's team lead the Championship in most matches with at least 3 goals scored so far this season. 25 of their Championship games have already gone that way. With form like that, surely only an entirely negative game plan from D. Wagner's men could prevent more of the same.

Cardiff v Stoke - Over / Under 5.5 Goals - under

Neutral seeking a wild match with goals galore on Saturday afternoon, Cardiff City v Stoke City on Saturday afternoon may not be the one to watch. All of Cardiff City's last 110 Championship outings has had under 5.5 goals, and nobody's expecting that Erol Bulut's side put an end to that streak any time soon.

Ipswich v Birmingham - Win / Draw / Win - home win

There are some strong feelings about this match within our betting community, and they've put their money where their mouth is. On Saturday, 5 have backed Ipswich Town to claim victory over Birmingham City at Portman Road. Taking advantage of best odds of 1.50 from the bookies, they'll be keeping fingers crossed that Kieran McKenna delivers a masterclass and claims that much-needed home win.

M'Boro v Plymouth - Both Teams To Score - yes

Middlesbrough supporters have been spoilt with action at each end when their team plays in the Championship, with both sides having found the net in all of their last 8 matches. Plymouth Argyle on Saturday afternoon could be another ding-dong battle.

QPR v Rotherham - Win / Draw / Win - home win

Bad form can be tough to shift, but that's the task facing Rotherham United boss Leam Richardson on Saturday. His team faces Queens Park Rangers having failed to get anything but defeat out of their last 5 Championship games.

Sheff Wed v Bristol C - Over / Under 2.5 Goals - under

Low scoring games aren't always tedious affairs, but fans of Bristol City have had lots of chances to test that theory this campaign. 20 of their side's games in the Championship have finished with under 2.5 goals so far - the most in the competition. Will D. Röhl and his Sheffield Wednesday side be capable of adding some goals into this match on Saturday? Or will it be yet another low scoring affair?

Southampton v Millwall - Win / Draw / Win - home win

There is clearly a lot of faith within KO's tipsters in Russell Martin and his chances of delivering a win for Southampton on Saturday afternoon. 7 have backed him to guide his team to emerge victorious from their encounter with Millwall. Will he repay the trust placed in him? We'll know by the end of the 90.

Sunderland v Swansea - Over / Under 4.5 Goals - under

We all love a game in which more than 4 goals fly in, but Sunderland's long-suffering supporters have now had to wait 28 matches to see their side take part in one. Certainly they could be forgiven for craving some proper excitement by now. Could the streak come to an end on Saturday afternoon, as they face L. Williams's Swansea City at Stadium of Light? With odds of 1.14 on there being 4 goals or fewer being scored, the UK's leading bookmakers certainly don’t think so.

Watford v Huddersfield - Both Teams To Score - yes

Supporters at Vicarage Road will be anticipating plenty goalmouth action on Saturday, and with good reason if Huddersfield Town's recent record is anything to go by. We've seen BTTS in 22 of their 33 Championship matches this season, a record matched by no other team in the competition.

How to Choose Your Championship Football Bet

Betting on Sky Bet Championship fixtures demands more homework and patience than any other league. This is due to a number of reasons.

The Championship is made up of 24 teams which vary greatly in quality. Three teams each year will be relegated from the Premier League with parachute payments which can amount to more than £70m. This compares to other teams in the league which have total turnovers equating to less than £5m. The Championship is one of the toughest leagues in the world with a high number of fixtures and the biggest prize in football; promotion to the Premier League.
