Ipswich v West Brom
Ipswich have not won in their last five and have conceded in their last eight games. West Brom beat Leeds to end a run of four without winning but have also conceded in their last eight games. There is no relevant recent head to head, so it is all about current wellbeing. Ipswich have a new manager and have at least secured two draws in their last two games but West Brom were impressive against Leeds although I cannot consider them at odds on here. Try Over 2.5 goals at 2.00 or both teams to score with preference for the former.

Sheff Wed v Derby
Wednesday have not won in five but managed a battling 0-0 draw in the Sheffield derby. Derby were beaten by Aston Villa after a six-match unbeaten run and also picked up a couple of key injuries which may affect them. Sheff Wed have conceded in every home game and Derby in every away game suggesting goals could be the order of the day. Wednesday have won two and drawn two of the last four head to head at Hillsborough. Try Over 2.5 goals at 1.80 and consider trading out if we get two first half goals.
Millwall v Bolton
The last five head to head and six of the last eight meetings were Under 2.5 goals. Millwall have won their last three at home and scored in every home game. Bolton have not won in seven losing six of them. In their last ten games, Bolton have scored only two. Millwall to win to Nil at 2.50.
Preston v Blackburn
Four recent head to head all ended in Over 2.5 goals and both have been finding the net recently. Preston are unbeaten in seven and have scored in their last nine. Blackburn have lost two in eleven and scored in their last six. Try Over 2.5 goals at 2.10 with a view to trading.
Swansea v Norwich
Norwich are on fire and have won their last five and have scored in all their away games. They have lost just once in twelve games. Swansea have found a touch of form too with three wins in their last four games. Two recent head to head last season both ended in home wins. I’m tempted to Lay the draw here and trade out at a goal.

Aston Villa v Birmingham
A huge local derby and one that Villa have had the better of in the four recent head to head in this league. Villa won both the home games and drew both away. They also had a fine win at Derby, their second win on the bounce and they have scored in every home game. Birmingham had gone eleven games unbeaten but have now not won in two, but they have scored in their last nine games. This will be a lot closer than many will think and whilst I can see Villa winning, both teams to score at 1.85 looks a better option.
