Football – England – Championship Betting Tips

Onto the Championship and mid-table Wigan Athletic will take on West Brom as the betting tips continue in the second tier with another potential money-making play.

Wigan are quite rightly in their current mid-table position after a solid start at the DW Stadium this season but being let down by their performances and results away from home to date. The Latics still remain unbeaten at home with a solid looking record of  4-2-0  9/5 which includes wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Rotherham United, Hull City and Bristol City.

However, the hosts come into this encounter without a win from their last three and only one point as they’ve recently lost to Norwich City and Preston North End (both away from home) along with a 0-0 draw at home to Swansea City.

Visitors West Brom sit in second place and just one point behind Championship leaders, Sheffield United ahead of their trip up to Wigan this Saturday afternoon. The Baggies have won five of their last seven in the second tier and are now seemingly on a roll as the west midlands outfit look to secure a swift return back to the Premier League following last season’s relegation from the top flight.

In addition, early indications suggest the bit of business done before the season with the loan swap of Dwight Gayle and Salomon Rondon to and from Newcastle United has worked out nicely for West Brom as they seem to have got the better of the deal to date with Gayle yielding 8 goals so far this season (compared to Rondon’s zero return and used sparingly by Rafa Benitez).

West Brom have lost just once away from home so far this term too which was a 1-0 loss at 4th placed Middlesbrough but wins at Norwich City and Preston North End (both of whom beat Wigan) along with a point at 5th placed Nottingham Forest suggest that West Brom stand a good chance of walking away with at least a point here.

My betting tips suggest backing West Brom with the draw no bet option.
