EFL Championship Matchday 14: Best Betting Football Tips

Cardiff City vs. Middlesbrough: EFL Betting Tip

Mick McCarthy’s Cardiff and Neil Warnock’s Middlesbrough meet at the Cardiff City Stadium in the Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Bluebirds head into this one hoping to avoid an eighth straight league defeat.

Cardiff made a decent start but have been in abysmal form over the past couple of months or so. The midweek loss at Fulham was the Welsh club’s seventh Championship reverse in a row. City have now lost nine of their last ten in all competitions and are one place above the drop zone.

Our betting prediction:
Over 2.5 goals

(odds taken 1308 GMT, Friday 22 October)


Middlesbrough have been inconsistent this season but have been in decent form of late. Since back-to-back losses to Blackpool and Reading, Warnock’s men have won three of their following four. However, they have picked up just one away victory this term.

Defeat will surely be the end for McCarthy at Cardiff, but a positive result could see the experienced manager live to fight another day. We are backing the draw and both teams to score in this one at 18/5.

Cardiff City 8/5

Bournemouth vs. Huddersfield Town: Best Football League Betting Predictions

Scott Parker’s high-flying Bournemouth welcome Carlos Corberan’s in-form Huddersfield to the Vitality Stadium this Saturday. The Cherries have yet to lose in the league this season and will be targeting another three points from this one.

Bournemouth have been the real deal in the second tier so far, winning nine and drawing four of their opening 13 Championship matches. After an impressive 1-0 victory at Stoke City in midweek, the Cherries stretched their lead at the top to five points.

Huddersfield have been one of the surprise packages in this season’s Championship, amassing a more than respectable 21 points. Corberan’s troops are in sixth spot after six wins, three draws and four defeats. They head to Dorset on a four-game unbeaten run (two wins, two draws).

Huddersfield are in fine fettle at present, but we can only see one winner in this one. The Cherries have been sensational so far, and we like the look of 7/4 for the hosts to win -1 on Saturday.

Bournemouth 13/20
Draw 14/5
Huddersfield Town 9/2

West Bromwich Albion vs. Bristol City: EFL Betting Odds & Predictions

After suffering a disappointing result in Swansea in midweek, Valerien Ismael’s West Brom will be desperate to get back to winning ways when they entertain Nigel Pearson’s Bristol City at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

On the whole, the Baggies have been superb this season. However, Albion have lost two of their last three in the Championship, with both defeats coming away from home. West Brom have dropped just four points at The Hawthorns this term, though.

Bristol City head to the Midlands having lost three of their last four in the Championship. They have been dreadful at home, but their away form has been impressive. Pearson’s Robins have taken 12 points from the last 15 on offer on the road.

After the disappointing result at the Swansea.com Stadium, West Brom should bounce back with a big three points on Saturday. Check out the tempting odds of 5/2 for the hosts to win both halves of this one.

West Bromwich Albion 4/9

Nottingham Forest vs. Fulham: Best EFL Championship Betting Tips on Matchday 14

On Sunday afternoon at the City Ground, Nottingham Forest entertain Fulham in what promises to be a thrilling Championship fixture. With both teams in great shape, this could go either way in Nottingham. However, the Cottagers are the clear favourites.

Nottingham Forest have improved drastically in recent weeks, winning five and drawing one of six since Chris Hughton left. The Reds have gone from rock bottom to within four points of the play-off spots. Can they pick up another positive result at the weekend?

Fulham moved back into second in midweek with a comfortable win over struggling Cardiff. Overall, Marco Silva’s men have won eight of their opening 13 matches, scoring 29 goals along the way. They will be hoping to keep the pressure on leaders Bournemouth with an away win here.

With Nottingham Forest in stunning form, this will not be an easy task for Fulham. Still, we are backing the London side to edge a tight affair at the City Ground. Put some money on the visitors to win by one goal at 13/5.

Nottingham Forest 3/1

Fulham 49/50
