Another week, another Championship accumulator – an exciting weekend in England’s second tier awaits.

Brentford lead our latest 14/1 four-fold; the Bees are primed to take all three points against Paul Cook’s Wigan Athletic. Without further ado, scroll down for our best Championship bets this weekend


BRENTFORD vs Wigan Athletic

Brentford are four from four at Griffin Park this season and the Bees faithful will be quietly confident of three points in this fixture.

A home win and both teams to score has landed in two of Brentford’s three Championship matches here and that makes 12/5 for the selection a very appealing price ahead of the visit of Wigan.

Cook’s men will fancy their chances as well though and this should be an exciting affair. The Latics have scored six goals in their previous four competitive away encounters and it would take a brave man to write Wigan off.

Will Grigg has four goals in his last six games for club and country and he is worth considering at 9/4 to extend that run this weekend.

TIP: Brentford to win and both teams to score @ 12/5

PREDICTED SCORE: Brentford 2-1 Wigan (Priced at 7/1 with 888sport)



Norwich have won their last three games against Middlesbrough without conceding a goal and the Canaries will be quietly confident of notching another victory at Carrow Road this weekend.

Under 2.5 goals has landed in the last four meetings between these two sides and punters may be tempted by the 16/25 available for another low-scoring affair.

Yet to taste defeat in eight competitive fixtures in 2018/19, Middlesbrough are primed to secure a positive result in this one. Tony Pulis’ men have kept two clean sheets in their last three away matches…

I fancy Boro to nick this one but it isn’t going to be easy. With that in mind, taking the 2/5 available for the visitors in the double chance market is probably the best bet.

TIP: Middlesbrough to win OR draw @ 2/5

PREDICTED SCORE: Norwich 0-1 Middlesbrough (Priced at 17/2 with 888sport)



After a difficult start to the campaign, Sheffield Wednesday have won three league games on the spin. It has been some turnaround in the Steel City.

The Owls have had their fair share of defensive issues in recent weeks but Jos Luhukay’s side are starting to score goals – notching two goals in each of their last three Championship fixtures. Wednesday are 13/8 to score over 1.5 goals again here.

Stoke have conceded seven goals in three Championship away fixtures in 2018/19 and you won’t find too many punters backing the Potters on current form.

However, Gary Rowett’s side have scored in all three of those matches and that brings the 7/10 for both teams to score into play. It could be an end-to-end affair at Hillsborough.

TIP: Both teams to score @ 7/10

PREDICTED SCORE: Sheffield Wednesday 2-2 Stoke (Priced at 12/1 with 888sport)



Blackburn have been inconsistent so far this season and Rovers will need to step things up in order to secure the victory on Saturday night.

Thrashed 4-1 by Bristol City in their last league game, Tony Mowbray will be urging his side to put on a show for the Ewood Park faithful. 17/10 for a home win is worth a second look considering…

Meanwhile, Villa have the exact same record as Blackburn after six league games – which shows how evenly matched these two sides are. This one really could go either way.

Steve Bruce will be demanding an improved performance after four league games without a win but this one could get away from the visitors. Villa have enough quality to score though and the 4/5 for a goal at both ends should be snapped up.

TIP: Both teams to score @ 4/5

PREDICTED SCORE: Blackburn 3-2 Aston Villa (Priced at 28/1 with 888sport)
