The Championship – 16th and 17th March

Cheltenham is done and dusted for another year and it’s another profit. I managed to get 9 winners from 14 bets, a £10 level stake on my selections would have returned £240. My personal highlights were seeing Hurricane Fly regain his crown and The New One beating the Irish Banker. The low point of the week for me was Dynaste, he traded at 1/3 in-running and looked the winner. If he had won I would have landed and 80/1 ante-post accumulator.

But it’s back to the main bank now and I’m still beating the banks interest rates with nine games left this season.

I watched Leeds at Palace last weekend and they’re not a bad side. They were outplayed at times but showed a lot of fight and spirit to get themselves back into the game and then take the lead. A performance like that away to other sides in this league and they would have picked up the three points.

Leeds are currently on a run of six games unbeaten and sit 7th in the form table. As always they are strong at home with a 11-3-4 record. Their only defeat in their last 10 at Elland Road was an unlucky 1-0 loss against Cardiff.

Huddersfield have only won three of their last 21 games. However things have improved slightly since Mark Robins took over have won two of their last six. A 1-0 defeat at home to Charlton last time out though doesn’t inspire much confidence. Defensively they are the worst side away from home in the division conceding and average of 2.33 goals per game on their travels. They have already conceded six goals twice and four goals three times.

Back Leeds United at 1.95 – BetVictor

Forest come here as the form team in the league since Billy Davies has taken over. They have won five and drawn one. The draw in that run was six games ago against Bolton, who have now also won their last five. They travel to Hull this weekend, they are 5th in the form table and 2nd in the league. The signing of George Boyd has been massive for them he’s given them some impetuous up front and they now look like they can score goals.

I’m taking this bet on instinct because from what I have seen of Hull this season, they’re not actually that good. If you can get the first goal against them you’ll be able to score a few more, as Sheffield Wednesday showed when they came here. On the other hand they have games where they create loads but can’t hit a barn door. I can see Forest getting something out of this game and think they’ll win it if they get the first goals. I do however want the draw on my side.

It’s a tough weekend in The Championship so the acca is paying out at over 660,000/1 with BetVictor.
