Championship Trading Focus: 8th-10th Feb 2019

Championship football tips



Friday 8th February 2019


Aston Villa v Sheff Utd

Villa have drawn far too many games this season and they need to turn those into wins if they are to get in the promotion places. Sheff Utd are in third and apart from a defeat at Swansea, they have won five and drawn two of their last eight games. In three recent meetings today at this level, there has been a win apiece and a draw. With the match difficult to call, Both Teams To Score looks a fair shout at 1.57.

Saturday 9th February 2019

Middlesbrough v Leeds

A top six clash and Middlesbrough have won the last two meetings today at the Riverside by 3-0. Leeds are in the middle of a poor run, losing four of their last six whilst Middlesbrough are unbeaten in five. And although this could be tight, I can see both scoring at 1.83.

Blackburn v Bristol City

Bristol City are currently the top form side in this division with 16 points from their last six games. They have won their last five, conceding just the one goal. Blackburn have also been playing well and had won four on the trot before succumbing to Brentford 5-2 having led 2-0. It remains to be seen how that reverse will affect them, but they are solid at home winning their last three and they have lost just twice at home this season. The last two meetings today at Ewood have ended level and that looks a big player here so try trading correct scores around 1-1 and 2-2.

Nottm Forest v Brentford

If it was down to consistency, Brentford would be a shoe in on current form as they are unbeaten in seven and scoring goals, twelve in their last three games. Forest need to steady the ship following three defeats in their last four and six in their last ten. They are capable as shown when beating Leeds 4-2, but they cannot be relied on to produce that kind of performance. Over 2.5 goals at 1.91.

QPR v Birmingham

QPR have won three of the last four head to head at home and have generally had the better of this fixture in recent years, losing just one of the last nine meetings today. The problem here is that they have lost their last three matches. Try Birmingham at 3.10 with a view to trading.

Stoke v West Brom

The two met earlier in the season with West Brom coming out on top by 2-1. There have been no other recent meetings today at this level so current form is the key. West Brom were beaten by Middlesbrough after leading 2-1 but their away form is strong with five wins in their last six away games. Stoke have lost five of their last seven but until recently they had been strong at home. Both teams to score at 1.80 looks a decent option.


Sunday 10th February 2019

Norwich v Ipswich

A local derby where four of the last five meetings today have ended 1-1 and the last seven meetings today were all Under 2.5 goals. Norwich are back on top form and are unbeaten in five and sit top of the league whilst their fierce rivals have been woeful this season and are bottom and nearly adrift. They have lost their last six away matches and have won only three games this season, losing six of their last seven. Everything suggests that Norwich will continue their winning ways against a poor side, but Ipswich will be lifted because it is a derby game and may frustrate the hosts. Try a small Lay of Norwich at 1.44 with a view to trading and let’s hope Ipswich can nick a goal or frustrate the home team.
