Championship Trading Focus: 17th-18th Jan 2020

Championship Football Betting Guide


Friday 17th January 2020


Fulham v Middlesbrough


The last five head to head were all Under 2.5 goals. The last seven games between the two have seen two wins apiece and three draws. Fulham had a good win at Hull last weekend whilst Boro were held 2-2 at home by Derby, following four successive wins. This is sure to be tight and Under 2.5 goals looks the obvious shout at around 1.95.


Sat 18th January 2020


QPR v Leeds

Leeds have won four of the last five head to head, but only one of the last five at QPR. Four of the last six meetings today were Under 2.5 goals. Both got beat last weekend, Leeds at home to Sheff Wed and QPR at Brentford. In nine recent head to head there has been just one goalless draw, so the Lay the Draw strategy looks a fair shout here.


Birmingham v Cardiff


The last five head to head at Birmingham all ended Under 1.5 goals with two 0-0 draws and three games won with a single goal. Six of the last eight Birmingham games and five of the last eight Cardiff games were Over 2.5 goals and that might be a good trading option at 1.91.


Derby v Hull

Derby have a great recent record against Hull but lost the reverse fixture by 2-0 back in October. They had won four and drawn one of the previous five meetings today. They have also hit a bit of form with two wins and two draws in the last four games. Hull lost last week but had won three of their previous four. A Lay of Hull at 2.75 might be a good trading option.


Millwall v Reading

No draw in the last five head to head, Millwall have won three of them including the two at home. Reading are unbeaten in seven including five away. Millwall have lost just once in twelve and are strong at home so 2.05 for them to win and trade out if they lead.


Preston v Charlton

Only three recent meetings today at this level with Preston victorious in all three, conceding just one goal. Both sides have won just one game in their last six and Preston have really fallen from grace. Preston are a bit short at 1.57 but they really should win, and I would rather chance Both Teams To Score at 1.80.


Sheff Wed v Blackburn

Nine of the last ten head to head were Over 2.5 goals and all nine of those games saw both teams score. It is difficult to imagine there not being goals here, so it might be worth chancing Over 3.5 goals at 3.50 as a trading option.


Nottm Forest v Luton

Just the one meeting in recent years and that was earlier this season where Forest won 2-1 at Luton. Forest thought they had won at Reading with a late goal but conceded an even later equaliser. Luton have lost six of their last seven and are hard to recommend. Forest to win and at 1.66 are probably fair value.
