Championship betting tips: 5 best bets for the games between November 9-11. Read on for our 5 best bets for the games in the Championship this weekend including Aston Villa's trip to face Derby, and the Steel City derby between Sheffield United and Wednesday.

Sheffield United vs Sheffield Wednesday (Friday, 19:45 GMT)

The Championship returns this weekend with a massive Steel City derby as Sheffield United host Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night. United did not have ideal preparation for this game as they fell to a 1-0 loss to Nottingham Forest as the side slipped down to third-place in the table. However, a win on Friday would see them go back to the top, even if it is only temporarily. Wednesday on the other hand sit in 17th in the table with 19 points and they come into this one on the back of a 4-0 hammering at the hands of Norwich. We feel that United are the side to back in this one when considering recent form, and with Wednesday losing by two or more goals in their last three games, we feel utilising the Asian Handicap provides value here.  Sheffield United vs Sheffield Wednesday (Friday, 19:45 GMT)

Birmingham City vs Hull City (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Birmingham come into this one on the back of a great run of form that has seen them unbeaten in 11 of their 12 games, helping the side move up to 10th in the league with 23 points, now just seven short of Leeds at the top. Hull City won their last match against West Brom to help them move onto 15 points as they continue to search for safety in the league. While they have won their last two games in a row, they have been anything but convincing, while they have only won twice on the road this year, drawing once and losing five times along the way. With this in mind, we feel backing a Birmingham side that have won their last three home games in a row is the best move here. 

Norwich vs Millwall (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Norwich have looked very good this season and they currently sit in second on 30 points, not at the summit solely due to their inferior goal difference to Leeds. Their most recent run of games has seen the side win four out of four, including a 4-0 hammering of Sheffield Wednesday in their last match. Visitors Millwall arrive on the back of a damaging 2-0 loss to Brentford which ensures the side have now failed to win a single away game in eight attempts, drawing twice and losing six matches. With the away side languishing in 19th in the league with 16 points, relegation is a real possibility, and they desperately need to start winning games. However, with their away form in mind, we feel backing Norwich in this one is the only way to go. 

Derby County vs Aston Villa (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Frank Lampard’s Derby County have been very impressive this season, with their start to the campaign seeing hopes of a return to the Premier League revived. Eight wins, four draws and four losses means they have accumulated 28 points and sit two behind Leeds at the summit, with a place in the automatic promotion spots very much in their sights. Aston Villa on the other hand have been incredibly inconsistent, winning five, losing five and drawing six times, which has seen them pick up 21 points, and while they did beat Bolton in their last game, they lost their two previous matches against Norwich and QPR. At home, the Rams have only lost once this season, winning five and drawing twice, while Villa have won once on the road, drawing three and losing four. With Derby unbeaten in their last six Championship games in a row, we feel the home side are the side to back to win in this one.

Middlesbrough vs Wigan Athletic (Saturday, 15:00 GMT)

Middlesbrough have looked impressive this year, with the side currently sitting in fourth in the league as they look to return to the Premier League. Seven win, seven draws and two defeats has seen the side pick up 28 points, with their consistency in being unbeaten impressive when considering how unpredictable the current Championship season has been. Wigan on the other hand have picked up points regularly, but this has primarily come at home, with the side awful on the road. After eight matches Wigan have won just once away from home, while they have lost their other seven, showing they are very much all or nothing, while on the road they have predominantly been in the nothing category. With this in mind, we feel backing Middlesbrough is the way to go.
