McCormack wincast a hot tip

The Championship season is just a couple of days old, but we’ve already had some incredible results that you just couldn’t see coming!

Coral’s bet of the day for August 7 is drawn from one of two second tier TV games as 2016 play-off runners-up Sheffield Wednesday host relegated Aston Villa at Hillsborough.

Only the Villans no longer look like whipping boys, because of a takeover by Chinese investors, the appointment of Roberto Di Matteo as manager and the £12m signing of Ross McCormack from Fulham.

A striker who can drop off to link midfield and attack, the Scotland international is a proven performer at Championship level.

We’ve therefore got no hesitation in recommending an enhanced 5/1 McCormack wincast as the bet of the day from among Aston Villa tips, and here are some more reasons why…

Prolific poacher

Having reached double figures in this division in five different seasons, including three campaigns where he’s scored over 20 times in the league, McCormack guarantees goals.

Winner of the Championship Golden Boot in 2013/14, McCormack has proven he can find the net for three different clubs; Cardiff City, Leeds United and Fulham.

Fulham v Bristol City - Sky Bet Championship - Craven Cottage

All three are like Villa, former Premier League clubs, and Di Matteo is now furnished with a player in McCormack who can drop deep and set up goals as well as score them. You can see why McCormack counts among Aston Villa tips!

Backing the McCormack wincast for a goalscoring and victorious Villans debut makes sense, with hosting opponents the Owls still potentially stung by their play-off pain at Wembley in May.

Take those terrific enhanced odds of 5/1 for McCormack to net in a Villa win at Hillsborough, as we feel it’s the best bet of the day!
