Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

Next up is an east versus west midlands clash as Derby County take on Aston Villa with further betting tips from the Championship between two sides who have experienced a contrast in fortunes to date this season.

Following a top six finish but losing in the play-offs at the end of last season, it was something of a surprise when Derby parted ways with former manager, Gary Rowett after he steered The Rams through a reasonable campaign, but Rowett was shown the door in favour of former Chelsea star, Frank Lampard.

Lampard made an inauspicious start at Pride Park as Derby lost two of their first three matches, but they’ve since flourished under him and they bring a solid six match unbeaten run with them into this encounter.

Recent wins over Sheffield United, West Brom and a rejuvenated Birmingham City – the latter coming from a goal down to register a 3-1 win were against strong teams, while Derby’s home record stands at a solid  5-2-1  14/8 with assistance from midfielders Lawrence (4 goals) and Mount (3 goals) along with forward Marriott (4 goals).

Aston Villa still seem to be finding their feet after the departure of former boss, Steve Bruce, as the west midlands club continue to produce frustratingly inconsistent performances under new manager, Dean Smith.

Perhaps a pattern is beginning to form though as Villa have recorded back-to-back wins over Swansea City and Bolton Wanderers at Villa Park but away from home, they’re without a win from their last seven matches on the road, losing their last three on the bounce at Millwall, Norwich City and QPR.

An away record of  1-3-4  9/13 confirms the problems they’ve had on their travels this season, and my betting tips suggest this could well continue at Pride Park on Saturday afternoon.
