Burton Albion v Sheffield United predictions and betting tips

Sheffield United will look to close the gap at the top of the Championship table when they travel to Burton Albion on Friday night. Burton's eight-game winless streak across all competitions ended prior to the International break as they managed to win 0-1 on the road at Millwall. This was only their third victory of the season and they are now one point clear of the bottom three. Meanwhile, Sheffield United have won seven of their last ten games in the Championship, including a 4-1 home victory over Hull City last time out. Although Sheffield have enjoyed a much better campaign than Burton, the hosts hold the better head-to-head record in this tie.

Preston North End v Bolton Wanderers predictions and betting tips

Bolton will look to extend their unbeaten run in the Championship to six games when they travel to Preston North End on Friday night. Preston have enjoyed a strong start to the season, but their recent form has seen them lose four games in a row. Keeping the ball out of their own net has been Preston's biggest issue of late as they conceded eleven goals in their last four league games. On the contrary, Bolton have found some form recently, having won two and draw three of their last five games in the Championship. The bad news is that Bolton are winless in nine away games across all competitions at the moment in time, scoring just five goals in the process. Four of the last five meetings between these two sides have seen few than two goals scored and I think this will be the case here as well.

Birmingham v Nottingham predictions and betting tips

Birmingham will look to get back to winning ways in the Championship when they take on Nottingham on Saturday afternoon. Birmingham have enjoyed a bit better run of form between September and October, but they are now once again in poor shape. They are winless in four league games, but the worst thing is they have failed to score a single goal in the process. On the flip side, Nottingham have won three of their last four games in the Championship, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Their away form has let them down, as Nottingham have lost four of their last five away games across all competitions. The good news is that Nottingham are undefeated in their four meetings with Birmingham in the Championship, winning twice in this term. Birmingham looked decent at home recently, so I'm backing them to secure at least a point here.

Cardiff City v Brentford predictions and betting tips

Cardiff will be aiming to get back to winning ways in the Championship when they take on the in-form Brentford on Saturday afternoon. Cardiff's three-game unbeaten streak in the Championship ended prior to the International break as they lost 2-1 on the road at Bristol City. The good news is that they are now back on home soil where they have only lost once in their last ten games across all competitions. In addition, they have won four of their last five home meetings with Brentford, scoring at least two goals in each of these. Brentford, on the flip side, have also enjoyed a strong run of form over the past two months, losing just once in their last ten competitive fixtures. Furthermore, Brentford have scored at least two goals in each of their last four games in the Championship. We should see goals in this one as each of the last five meetings between these two teams have seen more than three goals scored.

Hull City v Ipswich predictions and betting tips

Hull will be looking to put their Championship campaign back on track when they take on Ipswich on Saturday afternoon. Hull come into this tie on the back of a three-game losing streak in the Championship, conceding at least three goals in each of these. On home soil, Hull have only won once in their last five home league fixtures, conceding at least two goals in three of these. The good news is that Hull are undefeated in their last six home meetings with Ipswich in all competitions, scoring at least two goals in five of these. On the other hand, Ipswich have won two of their last three games in the Championship, scoring at least two goals in each of these. The most worrying thing is that Ipswich have lost five of their last six away games across all competitions, conceding twelve goals in the process. Hull holds a perfect recent head-to-head record and I'm backing them to extend it with a victory here.

Norwich v Barnsley predictions and betting tips

Two mid tables Championship sides will square off on Saturday afternoon, as Norwich takes on Barnsley. Norwich started the season brightly, but their recent form has seen them lose four consecutive games across all competitions. They have struggled to keep the ball out of their own net during this run, as they allowed two goals in each of those defeats. Their recent home form has also been a problem as Norwich are winless in the last five home league games, scoring just two goals in this term. The good news is that Norwich have won the last five home games against Barnsley, scoring at least two goals in four of these. Meanwhile, Barnsley have enjoyed a decent run of form recently, having lost just once in their last seven games in the Championship. Away from home, Barnsley are currently on a three-game unbeaten streak in the Championship, scoring eight goals in this term. Barnsley looked much better than Norwich recently and I think they should be able to secure a positive result in this one.

QPR v Aston Villa predictions and betting tips

QPR will take on Aston Villa on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship. QPR were on a four-game unbeaten streak in the Championship prior to their 4-0 defeat at Nottingham last time out. Their home form has also been good as QPR have only lost once in their last six games in the Championship. Aston Villa, on the other hand, were also on a three-game unbeaten streak in the Championship prior to their 1-2 home loss against Sheffield Wednesday prior to the International break. Villa also looked solid on the road over the past three months, losing just once in their last six league trips. It's difficult to predict the winner here as both sides have enjoyed a solid run of form recently. I'm not expecting too many goals here though, as the most recent two meetings between these two sides have seen few than two goals scored.

Reading v Wolves predictions and betting tips

Wolves will look to extend their lead at the top of the Championship table when they take on Reading on Saturday afternoon. Reading looked solid over the past three weeks, registering back-to-back wins over Nottingham and Derby in their most recent two league fixtures. They started to be more prolific going forward recently, scoring seven goals in the most recent two games. On the flip side, Wolves currently sit at the top of the Championship table with two points more than the second-placed Sheffield United. They enter the fray on the back of a two-game winning streak in the Championship, scoring four goals and conceding none in the process. Both sides have been involved in high-scoring affairs recently, so I think that both teams to score is a solid bet for this game.

Sheffield Wednesday v Bristol City predictions and betting tips

Bristol City will look to close the gap at the top of the Championship table when they travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday afternoon. Sheffield Wednesday have finally found some form of late as they come into this tie on the back of a three-game unbeaten streak in the Championship, including a 1-2 away win at Aston Villa prior to the International break. Furthermore, Sheffield Wednesday can count on their home form as they have only lost once in nine competitive fixtures so far this season. Meanwhile, Bristol have only lost once in their last ten games across all competitions and come into this tie on the back of a four-game winning streak, having scored at least two goals in each of these. There have been more than four goals scored in each of the most recent three games between these two and I think this will be the case here as well.

Sunderland v Millwall predictions and betting tips

Sunderland will take on Millwall on Saturday afternoon, with both teams looking to get back to winning ways in the Championship. Sunderland have been terrible over the past three months, having won just once in their last 16 competitive fixtures. They are currently on a 13-game winless streak across all competitions since a 1-2 win over Carlisle in the Carabao Cup back in the middle of August. Millwall, on the other hand, have also endured a poor run of form recently, having won just once in their last six Championship fixtures. In addition, they have been terrible on the road this season, having lost five and draw four of their nine competitive games. It's difficult to predict the winner here, but I'm not fancying goals given these two teams' poor run of form throughout this campaign.

Fulham v Derby predictions and betting tips

Fulham will be aiming to put their Championship campaign back on track when they take on Derby on Saturday afternoon. Fulham's recent form in the Championship has been terrible as they have lost three and draw two of their last five games. Their leaky defence has been the main reason for their recent performance as they conceded two goals in four of their last five league fixtures. Meanwhile, Derby were on a seven-game unbeaten run in the Championship prior to their 2-4 home loss against Reading last time out. They can count on their recent away form as they are undefeated in the last four league trips, conceding three goals in this term.

Leeds v Middlesbrough predictions and betting tips

Middlesbrough will look to extend their winning streak in the Championship to four games when they travel to Leeds on Sunday at lunchtime. Leeds' recent form has seen them lose four consecutive games across all competitions, conceding at least two goals in each of these. Their home form has also been poor as they are currently on a three-game losing streak. The only good news is that Leeds are undefeated in the last four home meetings with Middlesbrough in the Championship, winning three in the process. On the contrary, Boro are currently on a three-game winning streak in the Championship, conceding just once in the process. Their recent away form has also been good as they have only lost once in their last eight games across all competitions. I'm backing Boro to continue their good run of form and to grab another victory here.
