Championship betting tips: Expect goals at Pride Park and Hillsborough and a routine win for Nottingham Forest against a travel sick Millwall.
Derby vs Norwich
Frank Lampard has enjoyed an impressive start to his managerial career. His side are in the top ten of the Championship and knocked Manchester United and his former boss Jose Mourinho out of the Carabao Cup last week.
Sticking with the Rams’ impressive home form may be tempting, with three wins and a draw in their last four games at Pride Park, but they go up against one of the league’s in-form sides.
Norwich have taken 13 points from a possible 15 in their last five Championship outings and are on a run of five straight wins across all competitions.
Daniel Farke’s side have also proved they are no push overs on the road this season, having lost just one of their seven games away from Carrow Road (W4 D2 L1).
Derby’s defeat to Bolton last time out puts me off the home win, so I’m backing goals at Pride Park. Both teams to score at 4/5 with Novibet seems like the safe bet.
The hosts have been solid at the back on home soil but six of Norwich’s seven away games have had goals at both ends of the pitch.
Nottingham Forest vs Millwall
Nottingham Forest have lost just one of their 17 games in all competitions this season, but they sit 11th in the Championship after picking up just four points in their five games away from home.
But at home, they’re a whole different animal.
Aitor Karanka’s men are undefeated in their eight games at the City Ground and can clinch a fifth home win on the bounce when they take on a woefully out-of-form Millwall.
The Lions travel to the midlands inside the relegation zone and looking for just their second Championship win of the season.
But their away form suggests they’re in for a tough time against Forest – they have just one point and one goal to show from their five games away from The Den this season.
On paper, this is the easiest game to call tonight. Nottingham Forest to beat Millwall can be backed at 20/23 with Novibet.
Sheffield Wednesday vs West Brom
West Brom have the chance to regain top spot in the Championship after wins for Leeds and Middlesbrough last night saw the Baggies drop to third.
And you wouldn’t back against them in their form.
Darren Moore’s side are on a five-game unbeaten run – winning four of those games – and are the Championship’s top scorers with 25 goals in their 10 matches.
They take on an inconsistent Sheffield Wednesday who have won four, drawn three and lost three, scoring 15 goals and conceding as many in the process.
This should be a win for the visitors at Hillsborough but we expect Wednesday to find the back of the net. Nine of Wednesday’s 10 league game this season as seen both teams get on the scoresheet.
