Championship betting tips: Gameweek 25

Week 24 of the 2020/21 Championship drew to a close on Saturday the 16th of January with yet more action-packed ties.

Game week 25 is now just around the corner, with a number of sides set to be in action on the 19th of January.

Here are all 101’s predictions for the next round of Championship clashes.

Reading vs Coventry

Our first tie of the week pits Reading against struggling outfit, Coventry.

The Royals head into the tie sat 6th in the Championship, with just a few points separating them and the top-two.

However, since their early-season promise, Reading have been rather inconsistent.

That, though, should not stop them being able to see off a poor Coventry side this week.

Prediction: Reading 1-Coventry 0

Derby vs Bournemouth

Wayne Rooney’s first tie as permanent Derby boss ended in a rather shocking 1-0 defeat at the hands of fellow relegation-battlers, Rotherham.

So, with the Rams still on just four wins for the season, it is hard to see them getting much on Tuesday.

Bournemouth are flying high this season and though they suffered a shocking loss vs Luton on Saturday, they should still have enough to beat Derby.

Prediction: Derby 1-Bournemouth 2

Blackburn vs Swansea

Blackburn’s inconsistent 2020/21 continued over the weekend with a 1-1 draw vs Stoke.

The Rovers are now 11th in the league and proving a hard team to predict.

Swansea, meanwhile, are in fine form and 2nd in the division right now.

Prediction: Blackburn 1-Swansea 2

Rotherham vs Stoke

Stoke’s form has slipped off a fair bit recently.

The Potters have won just one in five and are slipping away from the play-offs.

They should, though, pick up a win vs 22nd-place Rotherham this game week.

Prediction: Rotherham 0-Stoke 2

Watford vs Barnsley

Watford have been somewhat inconsistent of late.

However, the Hornets would pick up a 2-0 win over the weekend.

And they should be more than capable of giving a mid-table Barnsley a run for their money, though this game is likely to be close.

Prediction: Watford 1-Barnsley 1

Norwich vs Bristol City

Norwich are by far and away the best team in the Championship this season.

The Canaries are seven points clear atop of the Championship and will likely extend/maintain that lead this week.

Bristol have slipped out of the play-offs recently due to some poor results.

Prediction: Norwich 2-Bristol City 1

Nottingham Forest vs Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough were pretty poor in their last clash vs Birmingham.

However, a big reason for this was likely due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the club which really limited Neil Warnock’s time with his side before Saturday’s game.

So, they should be much better in midweek, though the low-scoring Boro may struggle to beat a solid Forest side.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 0-Middlesbrough 0

Cardiff vs QPR

Cardiff have been in simply dire form of late.

The Welsh side have won just one of their last five Championship clashes, losing the remaining four.

As a result, though QPR are 20th, they are in much better form than Cardiff and should be able to get something from the game.

Prediction: Cardiff 1-QPR 1

Brentford vs Luton

Brentford are certainly one of the league’s in-form sides right now.

They have moved up to 4th in the table, despite having at least one game in hand on most sides around them.

So, they should be able to see off an average Luton team on Wednesday.

Prediction: Brentford 2-Luton 0

Huddersfield vs Millwall

Millwall’s descent down the Championship continued over the weekend with a 3-1 loss vs Nottingham Forest.

The Lions have won just one of their last five and it is hard to see them turning things round this week.

Huddersfield are also pretty average this term, but the Yorkshire outfit are in better form than Millwall currently.

Prediction: Huddersfield 1-Millwall 0

Birmingham vs Preston

Our final tie of the week pits Birmingham against Preston.

Aitor Karanka’s side would pick up a win over Middlesbrough on Saturday.

However, they are generally much poorer at home this season, whilst Preston have been in ok form of late, winning three of their last five.

Prediction: Birmingham 0-Preston 1


Championship betting tips: Predictions

Is there a tougher or more exciting league anywhere else in Europe?!

The Championship is notorious for being one of the most gruelling leagues in world football.

Much of that has to do with fixture schedule, which often sees teams play Saturday, midweek and then Saturday again.

Also, most teams in the Championship are capable of beating their rivals. That means the competition is fierce.

But who will be amongst the frontrunners to win the 2020-21 Championship?

Without further ado, the 101 Great Goals 2020-21 Championship betting predictions are as follows.

Winners: Watford

Runners-up: Swansea

Playoffs: Norwich, Nottingham Forest, Cardiff & Bournemouth

Relegation: Wycombe, Sheffield Wednesday, QPR


Championship betting tips: Outright odds

In a sign of how difficult it is to predict the winners of the 2020-21 Championship, Norwich are the bookies’ favourites.

The Canaries, who finished bottom of the Premier League last term, are 6/1 to win the Championship.

After losing the playoff final to Fulham, Brentford are priced at 7/1 to win the league.

Watford are third in the odds table at 8/1.

Slightly further back, Bournemouth are 11/1 while Nottingham Forest are 12/2 to win the league.

If you’re looking for longer odds, consider backing Swansea for the title at 20/1.

Championship betting tips: Relegation

When it comes to predicting which teams are likeliest to be relegated, Wycombe Wanderers top the list at 8/15.

Wycombe won promotion to the Championship via the League One playoffs.

Sheffield Wednesday are priced at 15/8 for the drop after an independent panel confirmed that the Owls will be docked 12 points over the sale of Hillsborough to a company controlled by their owner.

Rotherham (2/1), Coventry (4/1) and Reading (4/1) are also tipped for relegation from the Championship.

Those looking for longer odds should consider Huddersfield at 12/1.
