The Championship – 8th February

“We now enter February and this is a big month, the bank needs to be built up again and we need to get some pennies together for Cheltenham in March.”

The above was the statement I made last weekend and February couldn’t of got off to a better start with the two blog singles and 5 singles advised via Twitter coming in:
  • Lay Blackpool at 1.78
  • Back Watford at 2.15
  • Back Ireland +2.5 points at 1.81
  • Back England Total points Over 28.5 at 1.99
  • Back Italy +12.5 points at 2.06
  • Back Total Booking Points Over 46 City v L’pool at 2.38
  • Back Joe Flacco Superbowl MVP at 5.10

A seven fold on the above would of paid in the region of 360/1 so hopefully we can keep this run going.

Forests form since the sacking of Sean O’Driscoll has been awful P7, W1, D2, L4. This has led to the man who replaced O’Driscoll only lasting 41 days in charge. They’ve now appointed former manager Billy Davis, a man who they probably shouldn’t of let go in the first place. He’s now back after 20 months out of the game and his first assignment is away to a Bristol City side managed by Sean O’Driscoll.

Since O’Driscoll has gone to Bristol City he has set about making them defensively solid. They have now picked up their first clean sheet of the season when the beat Watford 2-0 at the end of last month. Of the four games he’s been in charge of they have won their two home games and lost their two away. However reports suggest they played well enough to get something out of these games.

Neither of these sides are in great form but Bristol City are three place and one point better off in the six game form table. With Bristol City seemingly on the up and Forest shooting themselves in the foot with the managerial merry-go-round this could be a good time to take Forest on.

Lay Nottingham Forest at 2.56 – Betfair

Sheffield Wednesday are another side that look to be moving in the right direction. They’ve won 3, drawn 2 and lost 1 from their last six and sit 5th in the form table. The signing of Leroy Lita will be huge for them. They are now defensively solid with five clean sheets in their last nine league games,but now crucially have a player who can regularly put the ball in the net. In that time they’ve only conceded three goals and have won six of these matches.

They now face a Derby side who are not only below them in the form table but also have a W3, D3, L8 record away from home. Their away wins have came at Bristol City and Ipswich, when these sides were out of any form and they also won at neighbours Nottingham Forest.

Considering the current form of these two sides and Derby’s lack of a cutting edge on the road I fancy Sheffield Wednesday to continue their good form here.

Back Sheffield Wednesday at 2.50 – Betfair

[symple_heading type=”h4″ title=”Wolves v Leeds United” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]
Wolves are in real danger of going down this season. They sit one place and two points above the relegation zone, they are winless in seven and have lost five of these. This weekend they face a Leeds side who have an outside chance of the playoffs if they can put a run together.

Leeds aren’t in great form but they have won two and lost four of their last six. However they did put a 3 game winning streak together if you include their two cup matches before last weekends unlucky 1-0 defeat to Cardiff.

I’m taking some caution with this by getting the draw on my side as I think that result on it’s own is overpriced. I would give Wolves a 35% chance of wining this based on what they shown this season and current form.
