The Championship is in full flow as we wait for game 10 of the season. Chris Hughton has led Brighton to the top of the league in his greatest accomplishment since getting Andy Carroll to score. As always there will be joy, tears, screaming and alcohol as bets go down in flames, but as always we are here to help you to pick up some cash in the worlds most competitive league.
Brighton v Cardiff
Brighton win @ 5/6
Brighton have had a great start to the season and haven’t lost in the league yet. Tomer Hemed has scored five goals so far including two in his last three apperances for the Seagulls and a 9/2 punt is the safe option.
But this is the Championship and safe is locks so a 6/1 anytime on Bruno who scored in this fixture last season seems attractive. If you do go the route of the defender he scored three goals last season all of which ended in draws. An exact repeat of last season is 60/1. You heard it here first.
Leeds v Brimingham
Leeds win @ 7/5
What the hell is going on at Leeds? They now have three, yes THREE wingers in the side with the addition of Will Buckley from Sunderland. Buckley had a habit of scoring against Leeds in the past so a shout for an anytime at 6/1 looks tasty.
He could make his debut today, but the expectations will fall on top of striker Chris Wood as usual. Four goals so far this season is good shooting for the Kiwi and a first goalscorer shout is the best bet for the game. Leeds’ two wins so far this season have been 2-1 and a Wood first goal and a 2-1 win is a lovely 30/1.
QPR v Bolton
QPR win @ evens
QPR need a big win after getting humped 4-0 by Fulham last time out. Charlie Austin is missing with a hamstring injury which means this game could be low on goals. Matt Phillips has two goals so far this season and is always a threat. A 1-0 win with Phillips to score the only goal is at 25/1 and quite appealing. QPR did the double over Bolton in 2013/14 and should be able to do it again.
Reading v Middlesbrough
Middlesbrough win @ 7/4
Middlesbrough showed how good they are by taking Leeds apart 3-0 at the Riverside last week. David Nugent scored again last week and now has three in his last four. His best form since that wonder goal for England. An first goal is surely one to be looking at.
Boro should have more than enough to get only their second win in eight trips to the Madejski Stadium. Since the start of last season Middlesbrough have kept 25 clean sheets in the Championship so a 2-0 with a Davy Nugent goal at 45/1 could pay for those Saturday night ‘quiet’ pints.
