Championship Trading Focus – Plenty going on in the Championship this weekend and we’ve got the best of the games covered with what we think are the best trading angles.
Just one thing to note, whilst we offer advice here each week, remember it is a trading advice so consider that when getting involved. If we suggest laying a short priced side and they go behind at any point, even after a few minutes, then we can trade out for a profit as that is what it is all about.
Saturday 17th February 2018
Fulham v Aston Villa
Villa are arguably the form side in the country with seven successive wins that have rocketed them up to second place. They are clearly full of confidence and will take some stopping here but they are meeting a Fulham side who are themselves unbeaten in nine and with seven wins in those nine. The three recent meetings between the two ended in home wins and that home advantage might just swing it in Fulham’s favour. A safer option may be to play both teams to score as they should both set out to win and goals should follow.
Preston v Wolves
Two more in form sides as the Championship promotion race really kicks in. Preston are in form losing just one in eight, the same as the Wolves side who top the table. Preston’s biggest problem is that they have drawn thirteen games and that swings this in favour of Wolves although the two recent meetings at Preston both ended level. Perhaps the safest option here is to Lay the home side with a view to trading.
Sunday 18th February 2018
Norwich v Ipswich
A local derby that Norwich have had the better of in recent seasons winning five and drawing two of the last seven meetings. The last five meetings have all been Under 2.5 goals suggesting tight matches. Norwich have lost just one of their last eight and appear to have turned the corner but those games have been tight with six of the eight Under 2.5 goals and at 1.80 (4/5) that seems the logical way to trade.
Leeds v Bristol City
Two sides that looked like challenging for promotion but who have both slipped up when going well. The striking stat here is that despite their poor form, Leeds have a great record in this fixture winning the last five at Elland Road and winning nine of the last eleven meetings overall. With Bristol City winning just one of their last seven it might be worth chancing Leeds at round 2.50 (6/4).
