EFL Championship Matchday 24: Best Betting Football Tips

Hull City vs. Blackburn Rovers: EFL Betting Tip

Blackburn are the form team in the Championship right now, firing their way into promotion contention after a hatful of wins. Can Rovers make it six victories on the spin with three points against Hull at the MKM Stadium on Boxing Day?

Hull have been in good form of late, winning four of their last seven. However, after four victories on the spin, the Tigers have taken just two points from a possible nine. They suffered their first reverse in seven last weekend, letting a 1-0 lead slip to lose 2-1 at Nottingham Forest.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn to be winning at half time & full time

Tony Mowbray’s Blackburn are without doubt the form side of the division. Since being hammered at home by Fulham, the Blue and Whites have dropped just two points from 21 on offer. They have won five on the trot, thumping Birmingham City 4-0 at Ewood Park last Saturday.

Blackburn have turned themselves into genuine promotion contenders after recent results, and we fancy Rovers to make it six wins in a row on Boxing Day. The away victory is available at 7/5.

Luton Town vs. Bristol City: Best Football League Betting Predictions

At Kenilworth Road on Boxing Day, Luton and Bristol City meet. The Hatters are in 14th spot on 29 points, with the Robins two points behind in 18th. This Championship matchup could go either way in Bedfordshire.

Luton have had a mixed season so far, picking up seven wins, suffering seven defeats and drawing eight times. However, they have a done a great job keeping themselves away from the bottom three, as many people had tipped them to be in a relegation battle before a ball was kicked.

Bristol City have had a mixed bag of results this term, and the Robins head into this one having lost 3-2 at home to Huddersfield Town last time out. Nigel Pearson’s boys have been poor on the road in recent months, losing four and drawing one of five.

These two teams seem pretty well matched on paper, so take a punt on the draw and both teams to score at the decent price of 4/1.

Luton Town 4/6

Derby County vs. West Bromwich Albion: EFL Betting Odds & Predictions

Derby and West Brom are set to go head-to-head at Pride Park in the Championship on Monday afternoon. With Fulham and Bournemouth dropping points of late, the Baggies have moved closer to the summit. Can they leave Derby with a big three points?

Derby picked up a precious victory in their last game, with a Luke Plange goal giving them a 1-0 home success over Blackpool. Prior to that, Wayne Rooney’s men, who are rock bottom of the table, had suffered back-to-back defeats to QPR and Bristol City.

After recent results, West Brom are now just four points behind leaders Fulham. However, with Blackburn’s surge in form, the Baggies have dropped down to fourth. Since losing to Huddersfield, Valerien Ismael’s men have put together a solid five-game unbeaten run, winning two and drawing three.

Too many draws have hindered West Brom’s progress this season, especially lately, but we fancy Albion to get all three points at Pride Park on Monday. There is good value in Unibet’s 49/20 for the Baggies to win -1.

Derby County 19/5

Queens Park Rangers vs. Bournemouth: Best EFL Championship Betting Tips on Matchday 24

The final Championship matchup of the round is scheduled to take place on Monday night when QPR and Bournemouth meet at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. These two clubs both have Premier League aspirations, and both will be gunning for all three points from this one.

Rangers have been going great guns under Mark Warburton, but their run of four wins and two draws ended last time out when they were beaten 2-0 at home by Stoke City. Still, the Londoners are sitting pretty in the play-off places right now.

Bournemouth made a blistering start to their Championship season under Scott Parker, but the Cherries have hit a rough patch of form of late. Since beating Reading to make it five wins in a row, Bournemouth have won just one of their last eight in the league. Despite their poor form, the Dorset club still sit second.

QPR will be hoping to hit back from the Stoke loss, while Bournemouth will be desperate for their poor run to come to an end. It could go either way, so our money is on the draw at 23/10.

Queens Park Rangers 41/20
