The Championship 1st January

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”Brighton v Bournemouth” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Leonardo Ulloa has been in England for almost a year now, last season he scored nine goals in seventeen appearances. This season he’s had suspension an injury to deal with but he’s scored six goals in his eleven games. He made his first start in almost two months on Boxing Day and scored two goals against Charlton. I think he’s one of the best strikers in this league, and even as a Crystal Palace fan I’d have him at my club. I was expecting to see him priced up at around the 2.20 mark, which fits into the 1.91 – 2.30 range that he is with most firms. However 888Sport and Unibet have him priced up at 2.90. Just on the basis that he has fifteen goals in his twenty-eight league games for Brighton so far means he must be backed at that price.

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”Burnley v Huddersfield” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Burnley are unbeaten at home all season and they have either conceded 0 or 1 against them in their eleven home games so far this season. They’re not in the greatest form at the moment, with only two wins in ten. However they have only lost two in that time and six of the games were away from home.

Huddersfield are in a bit of form at the minute with four wins in six and they are currently on a three game unbeaten run. However they haven’t won away from home against a top half side this season. I think this game will be close, Burnley games generally are, but they’ve managed to prevail in 64% of their home games so far so the odds-against looks too big in my ¬†book.

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”Derby v Wigan” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Derby’s home form and form in general is so strong at the moment. They’ve won eight of the last ten and only lost one of them, on top of that they continuously score goals, scoring in their last fourteen games. They’ve averaged 2.42 goals per game in that time. Wigan have improved since Uwe Rosler and they’re now unbeaten in four games. Although despite two games where they scored some goals they have drawn their last two games 0-0. Both of those games were at home and I don’t see them being able to go to Pride Park and keep this Derby side out. At odds-against I’m happy to take the chance on another Derby victory.

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”QPR v Doncaster” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Doncaster are in no form at all but neither are QPR. The home side have no wins and no goals in three games, they also currently have no fit strikers. Doncaster don’t score goals either, they only have five on the road all season and have failed to score in four of their last five matches. At 1.3x QPR are no value in the win market, however I’m not confident on Doncaster being able to keep them out completely. I think the best way to play this is to back Doncaster with a one goal start in the Asian Handicap market. That way to get your stake back if QPR win by one goal, like they’ve done in eight (75%) of their twelve win this season.

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”Ipswich v Charlton” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Ipswich are now up to sixth place, mainly on the back of their strong home form, but they have won five of their last ten and only lost one in that time. They haven’t been beaten at Portman Road this season by a side outside of the top seven. Charlton have lost five of their last ten games and are in a relegation battle, despite picking up a few results recently. Both of Charlton’s away wins this season have been 1-0 victories, but I don’t see them being able to stop Ipswich scoring today. Ipswich have score in all but one of their home games, I think that the most likely score will be 2-1 Ipswich but at odds of 1.95 on the home win, I’m happy to just have my money on that. I was expecting them to be around the 1.80 mark.

[symple_heading type=”h2″ title=”Yeovil v Watford” margin_top=”20px;” margin_bottom=”20px” text_align=”left”]

Of Yeovil’s last ten games both teams have failed to score six times, both teams have failed to score in thirteen of their twenty-three games. Watford’s last ten games has seen both teams fail to score on seven occasions and both teams have failed to score in eleven of their games this season. They’ve improved defensively since Zola left and I don’t see why they can’t continue that at Huish Park. Nothing suggests to me that Both Teams To Score NO should be an odds-against shot and I think that is the better bet than just taking Watford to win.
