The Championship – 26th January

The football hasn’t been going so well this month, however anyone that follows me on Twitter will have been advised of the below bets in the last week;

  • Trading the Wawrinka v Djokovic match
  • Mark Selby to beat Neil Robertson in the Masters snooker at 1.65
  • Djokovic -6.5 games v Berdych at 2.28
  • Street Battle (Wolverhampton 22/1) at 20/1
  • Arsenal to beat West Ham at 1.55
  • Andy Murray to beat Roger Federer at 1.7x
So the last week has to go down as a success overall but I admit I need to get back to winning ways with the main Championship bank. Hopefully even with a cut down card this week due to the FA Cup we can have a good Saturday followed by picking some midweek winners.

Going into last weekend Sheffield Wednesday topped the six game form table. Their recent form is very much down to their solid defence, only 3 conceded in the last 6 and 4 clean sheets. They are now 5th in the form table with 11 points from 6.

Charlton also come into this game in good form, they are sitting 7th in the form table with 10 points. They haven’t been as defensively solid as Wednesday but have scored 10 goals compared to Wednesdays 6 in recent games. In the last six Charlton have only failed to score 1 compared to 3 for Wednesday.

Charlton are nine places and 10 points better of than Wednesday in the league this season, so whilst Wednesday are an improving side it’s hard to make a case for them being ‘better’ than Charlton. For these reasons I would have Charlton priced at 2.25 max.

Neither of these sides come into this match with much form, see below

My feeling is that Wolves with  prove to be the better side at the end of the season, I feel that the players didn’t want to work for Stale Solbakken. Dean Saunders is a completely different kind of manager. He’ll get the players having a laugh and a joke and try to build a really good team spirit.
Blackpool have already lost two managers this season and with Appleton going to Blackburn it doesn’t say much about their long term prospects if they lose a manager to a club that most football fans are laughing at.
Even looking at the full table for the season Wolves are only two places and 1 point behind Blackpool. Everything at the moment is pointing to these sides being of equal ability with them heading in different directions. I think that Wolves will be finishing above Blackpool this season and with all that in mind I cannot have them as underdogs for today’s game.
