Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th 4pts Watford vs Wolves - Both teams to score 8/11 Ladbrokes Watford have won their last three matches but haven’t been convincing in their last two so I don’t see a huge amount of value in them especially given that Wolves have goals in them. It might just be that the best bet in this match is for both sides to score. Watford have scored in four of their last five and Wolves their last three and both have shipped goals over the course of the season so both to score looks good here.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Leeds 0 AH @ 2.075 bet366....I think this is a great price on the home team not to get beaten today.They have only lost 3 times at home in 11 games and they have the league's third meanest home defense conceding 9....Wigan have won just once away from home this season in 11 league attempts losing 8 on their travels.They have the joint third worst scoring record away with 9 goals scored in 11 games.The latics have just one win from their last 18 and I'm not sure if they should be favourites for this one.Not much on the team news front but Malabgd gives it above.Ryan and Bellusci are expected to be available for the home side.....

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Championship: Middlesbrough - Nottingham Forest Boro let us and themselves down at Ipswich Town last weekend and I expect a major reaction today in front of a massive holiday crowd. That, if any were needed, should provide additional motivation, the hosts have made every effort to get crowds up in a cash strapped area of the country and tend to perform above themselves when attendances rise above 25,000 and this should be circa 30,000. They have no new injuries to contend with and are very close to full strength, but still have the words of angry boss Aitor Karanka ringing in their ears after he read them the riot act after a totally "unacceptable" performance last week. The club and Karanka got a big boost this week with Hull City assistant manager Steve Agnew agreeing to come and take on the same role at Boro, this is a big signing and another statement of intent after all the money spent in the summer, which if you need reminding, was in last Saturday's preview. Mood is not so good at Forest, Tom Ince was recalled from his loan by parent club Hull City and they have been placed under a transfer embargo by the League. The visitors are coming with a "not to lose" mindset and will probably go with a 3-5-2 formation again, which is a recent change and they will sit deep and not put Boro under the kind of pressure that they faced and which unsettled them at Portman Road, still no Andy Reid or Chris Cohen in the Forest team and until they are back from long term injury, we can look to oppose the visitors. 1.5 units Middlesbrough -0.75 ball 2.13 asian line/Sportmarket.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Birmingham - Derby Birmingham continues to climb the table as their performances lately become better and better and we can see that as they have 4 wins in their last 5 games. Derby lately aren't looking so good as they stepped away from the places that lead directly to Premier and also have some important absences today. Birmingham is unbeaten in the last 4 home games and the boxing day always favores the hosts so i'm going for Birmingham (AH 0) @ 2.54 Marathonbet

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th As a fulham fan here I think the 1.61 on Bournemouth to win today is an insult. Christmas period, a league where anyone can beat anyone and we are a form team right now just don't understand. This has happened way to much before where I get baffled by the odds and them bookmakers always come out on top. So Bournemouth look like they are comfortable winners. If they don't win no idea why they are that short. I'm betting against my team just for a small Boxing Day insurance. 1.61 8/10 Bournemouth win b365 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th

Reading are up at 6/4 draw no bet at skybet' date=' away at desperately struggling Brighton. Reading are struggling themselves but 6/4 seems a bit much.[/quote'] As a Reading fan, I think that would have been fair just before Steve Clarke took over, but he has brought the experienced Pearce back into defence and made him captain. And coached the team already to do less prissying about. This league is proving very good for draws, but how to pick them is a good question. Back every team in the lower half of the form table to get a draw when they are playing each other and the results fall into place. This is my first post here, and i am looking to get back into betting after a break of fifteen years. My reason is that the more I watch Reading and consider this division, the more I think the draw can be picked. What tends to happen, it seems to me, is that virtually everyone in the middle of the division starts treading water like mad from here to the end of the season. Very few get a run together, and they are easy to avoid for the draw. For example, at the moment Bolton are in the top half of the form table and might be avoided for now, draw-wise. Interested to hear from people who bet on this division.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Yes I read that he had changed the captain's role back in his first game and they looked better. I would't have a clue about draws but there is a guy on here called 'allthethings' (I think) that looks out for higher priced draws using some previous seasons prices and results. It might be worth you two talking to each other. Good Luck.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Thanks a lot. I will check it out. Only two draws in the Championship today. It was a difficult day because a lot of teams were playing ones from the other half of the table; and in my opinion there are more draws when sides of similar ability meet. The form table only threw up a single match between two teams that were both in the lower half of it, where I see a pattern of draws. I chose that as my one draw of the day--Blackpool v Rotherham, and it came up. Played the best they have done all season today. Clarke has people playing in their correct positions now. On the other hand, Norwich were surprisingly abysmal. I am thinking of putting up a thread on my Championship draw musings and other things. I do think I will have some good insights, including some mathematical tricks that can make a bet almost foolproof. (That is a big claim--but it might be interesting to explore the "almost" part of that aloud. On the other hand, this seems such a quiet site, I am not sure if anyone would be reading. Any thoughts? (Cups ear, hollow echo...oh.) I write for a living, so I hope I would not be too dull.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th Having claimed that I write for a living, I then put up a horribly edited post, thinking I would be able to change it; but it seems I am too new. (Ashamed.) When I said "played the best they have done all season", I was talking about Reading.

Re: Sky Bet Championship > Friday December 26th To say something useful, instead of my blathering, I have found the number of draws in the championship this year to be above break-even level (at 12:5 average odds) if you backed them all. In itself, this is not useful, because no one is going to back all games to be a draw--and so narrowing it down is essential. I have only recently started checking table position against draw frequency, and it seems to me that the difference between the top 6 and the bottom 3 is about 16% (24% and 40%). So, leaving the top 6 out of draw bets starts to make draw betting in the Championship potentially viable, should things continue as they are. I am not interested in the bravado of betting, but more in the puzzle of how to best to play safe. This morning. for example, having taken a look at the fixtures--with a surprising five away favorites in the eight matches--I jotted down the idea: what would happen if one just blindly backed the two shorter prices in each match. As it turned out, you would made about a 4-point profit. You could do better being selective, because you would not like to back against Bournemouth, for example. As it turned out, only Bournemouth, of the five away favorites, won. Two of the four home favorites lost as well.
