Below are three suggestions for this weekend’s Championship coupon with the treble combining for a handsome 16/1 payout.
Leicester to beat Blackpool @ 6/4
Blackpool were leading the division before their midweek chastening by the seemingly hopeless Millwall and their slide to a more understandable position in the table could continue at the hands of an upbeat Leicester.
Consecutive victories for the Foxes away to Wigan and at home to Blackburn on Tuesday have confirmed an excellent start to their promotion assignment and with their opponents now having to address the doubts that come with defeat for the first time the 6/4 available about an away win could prove to be the bargain of the day.
QPR to beat Yeovil @ 4/5
Yeovil host QPR in the Championship’s purest David and Goliath contest but it will take an almighty effort from the Glovers to survive the 90 minutes with any points to show for.
After an ideal beginning with wins away to Millwall and Southend in the league and cup respectively the Somerset side have been increasingly exposed at the highest perch in their history.
The fantasy start has soured dramatically with only one point gained from their last five in the league and the visit of the table’s leaders could not have come at a worse time. With Harry Redknapp’s affluent outfit boasting the only unbeaten record in the division the 4/5 on offer makes plenty of appeal.
Gary Johnson will seek solace with the return of last year’s League One top scorer Paddy Madden from injury, but there is still no evidence to suggest he has adjusted to the raised standards and they could be forced to attempt what Brighton achieved in midweek in locking down a 0-0 draw – a tactic that has even less chance of working than slinging rocks at the heads of giants.
Millwall to beat Charlton @ 5/2
Millwall enjoyed their first league win of the season at home to the then league leaders Blackpool in the week and should be backed to maintain their momentum away to Charlton.
It’s been a disastrous start for the Lions in every aspect this campaign but a heartening victory against an in-form Tangerines will have given them the confidence to build.
Chris Powell’s side are struggling for any consistency and could be vulnerable having lost one of their two matches at The Valley already this term and will be reeling from a second defeat in four this week.
A price of 5/2 reflects the suspicion that the troubles are not over for the south London side but in a game where it is difficult to have too much faith in either line-up the odds dictate investment in the visitors.
