Championship betting tips: Gameweek 15

Week 14 of the 2020/21 Championship drew to a close on Sunday the 29th of November with yet more action-packed ties.

Game week 15 is now just around the corner, with several ties set to take place on Tuesday the 1st of December

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

Cardiff vs Huddersfield

Our first tie of the week pits Cardiff against Huddersfield.

The Welsh outfit picked up an impressive 4-0 win over Luton on Saturday to end their poor run.

However, Huddersfield also shone at the weekend, putting three past a usually defensively-sound Boro.

As a result, this tie seems quite hard to call and may be close.

Prediction: Cardiff 1-Huddersfield 1

Birmingham vs Barnsley

Birmingham once again drew in GW14 and also yet again, struggled to score.

Aitor Karanka’s side are now the lowest scorers in the league outside of the bottom four.

And though Barnsley have scored more and are now above Birmingham, it is hard to see the Yorkshire outfit being able to open up their upcoming opponents too much.

Prediction: Birmingham 1-Barnsley 0

Bournemouth vs Preston

Bournemouth’s winning run came to an end on Saturday with a rather surprising 2-2 draw vs Rotherham.

The Cherries, though, should be able to get back to winning ways vs Preston.

Preston are down in 18th place and have lost four of their last three.

Prediction: Bournemouth 2-Preston 1

QPR vs Bristol City

QPR have endured a rather patchy start to the season, with their last tie a 2-1 loss vs Brentford.

They now face a Bristol City side no doubt eager to bounce back from their latest result.

Bristol had been in decent form before the weekend but lost to Reading on Saturday.

They should, though, have enough to see off QPR.

Prediction: QPR1-Bristol City 2

Derby vs Coventry

Derby’s nightmare season continued in GW14 despite facing a poor Wycombe side.

The Rams drew 1-1 with the recently-promoted outfit and it is hard to see them getting a win this game week either.

Coventry are 20th in the league but are more than capable of scoring a few goals, unlike Derby.

Prediction: Derby 0-Coventry 1

Rotherham vs Brentford

Brentford’s fine form continued on Saturday with a win over QPR.

And they should be able to extend their unbeaten run this week.

Rotherham are 19th and have won just one of their last five.

Prediction: Rotherham 0-Brentford 2

Middlesbrough vs Swansea

Middlesbrough endured a nightmare GW14, conceding three in the league for the first time this season.

And Boro face another tough test this time around.

Swansea are 7th in the Championship and boast a solid defensive record, like Middlesbrough.

Prediction: Middlesbrough 0-Swansea 0

Wycombe vs Stoke

Stoke were held to a 0-0 draw by Sheffield Wednesday last time out.

Wycombe, meanwhile, were unable to beat an awful Derby side.

On paper at least, a Stoke win does look the more obvious choice in this game.

Prediction: Wycombe 0-Stoke 2

Nottingham Forest vs Watford

Our next tie should be fairly easy to call.

Nottingham Forest are down in 21st spot and on a three-game losing streak.

Watford, meanwhile, are up to 3rd and unbeaten in five.

Prediction: Nottingham Forest 0-Watford 2

Luton vs Norwich

Luton’s unbeaten run was ended by Cardiff last time out.

And they are likely to lose once again this week.

Norwich are flying high atop of the Premier League and are unbeaten in five.

Prediction: Luton 0-Norwich 2

Sheffield Wednesday vs Reading

Sheffield Wednesday managed another draw under Tony Pulis last time around.

They now face a Reading side who are finally regaining some form.

This tie will likely be close and low-scoring.

Prediction: Sheffield Wednesday 0-Reading 1

Blackburn vs Millwall

Blackburn’s solid run continued on Saturday with a win over Barnsley.

Meanwhile, Millwall drew their fifth league tie in a row.

Expect this tie to be close with Blackburn perhaps edging it if they are on form.

Prediction: Blackburn 1-Millwall 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.
