Championship betting tips: 3 best bets for the games between December 7-8

Ben Darvill 4 Dec 2018

Championship 3 best bets for the games between December 7-8. Read on for our 3 best bets for the games in the Championship this season including Norwich's attempt to increase their lead at the top of the table as they host Bolton.

West Brom vs Aston Villa (Friday, 20:00 GMT)

West Brom floundered on Monday and, despite a strong start to the season, they are allowing the likes of Norwich and Leeds to stretch their lead over them. 10 victories is 20 is a decent record, but they were held to a disappointing 1-1 home draw by Brentford on Monday as the Baggies spurred a number a chances to secure the points against a side that had only won five times this season. Aston Villa arrive on the back of a superb win over Middlesbrough, with the side easily sweeping aside their opponents in an impressive win. 

While West Brom are good at home, winning six of their 10 games there, we quite fancy Aston Villa with their current price. The away team have won three of their 10 away games, drawing three and losing the other four. While this record is not particularly impressive, they are a big-game team. Their last two away games have seen the side beat Derby and Middlesbrough 3-0, which has helped to extend their unbeaten run to five games. Of course, West Brom should not be written off in this one, and the braver bettor may fancy an outright Villa win, but we are recommending backing Villa in the Draw No Bet market, which offers value and safety for your bet. 

Wigan vs Derby (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Wigan have been a side that are very much home-birds this season with their impressive form in front of their own fans juxtaposed by their awful form away from home. Six wins from 10 is a very positive run, but they have lost eight of their 10 games on the road as they have struggled massively. While their first loss of the season at home came in November, it was against a Leeds side that are, at times, fantastic. Derby arrive in fairly good form themselves, with Frank Lampard guiding the side towards the upper-echelons of the table. 10 total wins and six losses has seen the side pick up 34 points, meaning they are just six short of Norwich at the top.

While Derby are the side that sit higher in the league, Wigan’s home form is tough to overlook. Despite being so strong in front of their own fans, Wigan offer good value, while a Derby side that have lost as many games as they have won on the road are odds-on, while their last away game ended in a 2-1 loss to Stoke. With all of this in mind, we feel backing Wigan is the way to go, with the side looking to secure their seventh win in 11 home games. 

Norwich vs Bolton (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Norwich have looked awesome this season, and after a start that has seen the side lose just four games, they top the table. 12 wins is the most in the league, while they have hit the back of the net 35 times. The fact they have conceded 22 goals is worrying for the side, but they have a habit of conceding, and then beating their opponents by simply outscoring them. Bolton arrive in 23rd in the league with 18 points from 20 following just four wins this season. 13 goals scored is poor, but the fact they have only conceded 26 times is impressive considering the fact they sit second from bottom. 

Norwich are clearly our picks to win this as they have won seven of their 10 home games, while Bolton have picked up just two wins. Norwich offer no value to win outright, but when backing there to be over 2.5 goals in a home win, you can get some fairly good odds. This should be taken with a pinch of salt though as Bolton are fairly good at staying tight in games, with no more than two goals being scored in their last six games. However, Norwich are very strong going forward, with four of their last five games easily eclipsing the 2.5 goal mark, with a 4-0 win over Sheffield United followed by shorelines of 4-3, 4-1 and 3-1 in wins over Millwall, Swansea and Rotherham respectively.
