Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

A mouthwatering west midlands local derby awaits us on Friday night as West Brom take on Aston Villa with more betting tips for our readers at The Hawthorns.

West Brom bring an encouraging four-match unbeaten run into this local derby having won three of these last four with wins over Leeds United, Ipswich Town and Swansea City along with a point against Brentford in a recent 1-1 draw.

The Baggies have lost at home just twice this season within an overall home record of  6-2-2  27/14 with the hosts also being the highest goalscorers at home in the Championship to date. Goals have been supplied from various sources with midfielders Barnes (8 goals) and Phillips (5 goals) supporting the forward trio of Gayle and Rodriguez (9 goals apiece) and Robson-Kanu (3 goals).

Aston Villa sit just two league places and three points outside the play-off pack ahead of this vital clash at The Hawthorns as they too bring a strong recent set of results into this encounter with them; four wins from their last five include victories over Bolton Wanderers, Derby County, Birmingham City and Middlesbrough, as well as a point against Nottingham Forest in an epic 5-5 draw.

Villa’s results away from home were in danger of preventing the west midlands outfit from lifting themselves nearer the play-off pack as they’d suffered defeats at Millwall, Norwich City and QPR, but have since recovered to record back-to-back impressive wins at 7th placed Derby County and 4th placed Middlesbrough, both by 3-0 margins amidst an away record of  3-3-4  15/13.

Strikers Abraham (11 goals) and Kodjia (5 goals) lead the way for the visitors who will be keen to continue their march towards the top six.

This should be an enthralling local derby and the betting tips suggest backing both teams to score here.
