Championship betting tips: Gameweek 3
Week 2 of the 2020/21 Championship drew to a close on Sunday the 20th of September with yet more action-packed ties.
Game week 3 is now less than a week away, with the first of 12 Championship outings set to take place on Friday the 25th of September at 7:45 pm UK time.
Here are all 101’s predictions for the next round of Championship clashes.
Huddersfield vs Nottingham Forest
Our first tie of the weekend pits two out of form sides against each other.
Nottingham Forest were chasing promotion last term, but they have started this season in awful form – losing their opening two matches 2-0.
Huddersfield, who are now without Danny Cowley, have also been in poor form this term.
The Terries have had a slightly harder start to the season vs Norwich and Brentford, but they are still yet to pick up a single point this term.
Prediction: Huddersfield 1-Nottingham Forest 1
Wycombe vs Swansea
Wycombe, one of three newly-promoted sides this term, look set for a very tough campaign.
They would lose to recently promoted Rotherham on the opening weekend and were then hammered 5-0 by Blackburn in GW2.
As for Swansea, they had a decent start to the season – picking up a 1-0 win and then playing out a 0-0 draw with Birmingham.
Prediction: Wycombe 0-Swansea 1
Barnsley vs Coventry
Barnsley, despite a solid end to 2019/20, have fallen to defeat in their opening two league games this term.
Both of those losses came at the hands of strugglers from last season (Luton and Reading).
The Yorkshire outfit now take on newly-promoted Coventry, who earned a key win over QPR over the weekend.
This tie should be a fairly closely contested affair.
Prediction: Barnsley 1-Coventry 1
Preston vs Stoke
Both Preston and Stoke head into this game still searching for a victory in 2020/21.
Stoke have so far drawn with Millwall and lost to Bristol City whilst Preston drew with Norwich and were beaten by Swansea.
Given Preston have had a tougher start to the season and managed the same results as Stoke, you would imagine they may just edge Saturday’s game.
Prediction: Preston 1-Stoke 0
Derby vs Blackburn
Derby are yet to pick up a single point this term, losing to Reading and Luton in their two previous league ties.
Blackburn, on the other hand, have been in much better form.
The Rovers narrowly lost to Bournemouth on the opening weekend before hammering Wycombe in GW2.
As a result, Blackburn should be viewed as favourites for this tie.
Prediction: Derby 1-Blackburn 2
Watford vs Luton
Our next clash is somewhat harder to call.
Luton, despite being in the relegation zone for much of last term, are one of just a few Championship sides to have won both their league outings this season.
As for Watford, they have picked up four points in 2020/21 and arguably have the best squad in the league.
Prediction: Watford 2-Luton 1
Birmingham vs Rotherham
Birmingham, under Aitor Karanka, have already transformed into a solid defensive unit.
This has seen them pick up a huge win over Brentford and draw with Swansea.
As a result, they should have no problems seeing off newly-promoted Rotherham.
Prediction: Birmingham 1-Rotherham 0
Millwall vs Brentford
After an open weekend defeat vs Birmingham, Brentford bounced back with a 3-0 hammering of Huddersfield.
The Bees now face a tough away trip to Millwall.
Millwall are not the most high-scoring side in the Championship, but they should still put up a decent fight.
Prediction: Millwall 1-Brentford 1
Cardiff vs Reading
Reading, despite being pretty poor last season, have won their opening two league games of 2020/21.
As for Cardiff, they fell to defeat vs Sheffield Wednesday but were then able to see off Nottingham Forest.
This game should be pretty close and filled with goals.
Prediction: Cardiff 2-Reading 2
QPR vs Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough have had something of a mixed start to 2020/21.
Boro have already faced two recently relegated sides, drawing with Bournemouth and losing to Watford.
Middlesbrough would give a good account of themselves in both ties, though, and should be able to give QPR a run for their money this weekend.
Prediction: QPR 0-Middlesbrough 1
Bristol City vs Sheffield Wednesday
Bristol City have started this campaign in top form, picking up wins over Coventry and Stoke.
They will now face perhaps their toughest test of the season so far in GW3 however.
Sheffield Wednesday may be bottom of the league due to a points reduction, but they have already managed to beat Cardiff and hold Watford to a draw this term.
Prediction: Bristol City 1-Sheffield Wednesday 2
Bournemouth vs Norwich
Our final clash of the weekend pits two of last season’s Premier League outfits against each other.
Both have had solid starts to life back in the Championship, earning four points apiece.
But with Norwich arguably possessing the better of the two squads, they may just edge this matchup.
Prediction: Bournemouth 1-Norwich 2
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.
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.
