Championship Predictions: Correct Score Bet

Millwall vs Swansea City

The respective form of these two teams points to only one possible football prediction.

It’s four consecutive defeats to nil for the Swans, who were in the race for automatic promotion not so long ago. Although still eight points off sixth, Millwall have won four of their last five.

Only Barnsley and the top two have accumulated more points than Millwall since the turn of the year. This hasn’t been a case of a relentless attack or unbreakable defence, though.

They have just found a way to get wins – their last four victories have all come by one goal.

The bookies favour Swansea. The visitors are 6/4 to win the match. The struggles in front of goal are bound to come to an end at some point, but Millwall will make it difficult for them. This has the makings of a tightly fought draw.

Championship prediction: Draw (2/1)

Correct Score Bet: Millwall 1-1 Swansea

Cardiff City vs Blackburn Rovers

Cardiff’s football betting odds to gain promotion have lengthened. The win over Swansea before the international break is the exception rather than the rule of late.

The Welsh club have struggled mightily – their five points picked up over their last six games is the third-worst tally.

Blackburn’s form hasn’t been much better. It’s one win in eight league matches. Faint hopes of sneaking into the playoffs have faded rapidly.

The Lancashire club are now much closer to the relegation zone than they are to the top six, and they are unsurprisingly big underdogs for this match.

As Cardiff search to regain form, there are few better opponents. Blackburn’s season has faded into mid-table mediocrity. This looks like a low-scoring home win.

Championship prediction: Cardiff to win (19/20)

Correct Score Bet: Cardiff 1-0 Blackburn

Championship Predictions

The Championship is the second highest division in the English football league system after the Premier League and it is often labelled as the toughest league in world football.

Popular with football betting fans around the world, the Championship has a gruelling 46-match schedule that is designed to separate the men from the boys.

Securing promotion to the Premier League is the ultimate objective for the 24 Championship clubs at the start of every campaign but reaching the promised land is easier said than done.

The EFL Championship was founded in 2004 after it was previously known as the Football League First Division.

The winning team is awarded the EFL Championship trophy, which happens to be the same trophy as the old First Division before the Premier League was formed in 1992.

The topic of Championship salaries is always intriguing, especially when the likes of Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Fulham have dropped out of the Premier League.
