Bournemouth, Derby, Middlesbrough a fab 13/2 Championship treble
Want to make the weekend’s football interesting? Coral can oblige by offering customers enhanced odds of 13/2 on wins for Bournemouth, Derby and Middlesbrough in the Championship.
Eddie Howe’s Cherries clash with Blackburn Rovers, while Steve McClaren takes his rampant Rams to Fulham and Boro battle Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough.
All three featured teams in this tasty treble occupy places in the second-tier’s top four and are either odds-on or short-price favourites for victory so, to ensure the best value, punters should back this boosted price bet.
Here are some other reasons why this one should come off.
Bournemouth v Blackburn
Rovers have won just one of their last five league matches, so the Cherries start as odds-on 8/11 favourites for three points. Bournemouth’s last five goals have all come from different sources, so they really do possess threats from all over the pitch.
This is in stark contrast to predictable Blackburn, who will crudely look for Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes, but face one of the best defences in the division here. Cherries top scorer Callum Wilson has netted more than his opposite numbers, and is 6/5 to strike again anytime.
Fulham v Derby
McClaren has seen County already put five past Fulham in league and cup meetings this term, so they are excellent value at evens to win at Craven Cottage. The Rams are also better at 29/10 to win with both teams being on target.
Darren Bent will want to prove himself against his former club here, as he spent much of his time at Craven Cottage warming the bench. For Championship leaders Derby, he has been in hot form, scoring last in three of his last four league outings. Back Bent to net again anytime at 5/4, or to have the final say at 5/1.
Sheffield Wednesday v Middlesbrough
The Owls have only earned one victory in their last eight, so visitors Boro are 23/20 favourites to beat Wednesday at home. Only Leeds United and Arsenal have inflicted defeat on Aitor Karanka’s club since Christmas, so that illustrates what fine form the Teesside outfit are in.
Patrick Bamford and Grant Leadbitter have been key to Middlesbrough’s promotion push this term, and both are in double figures for goals, so back them both to net anytime again at 5/4 and 11/4 respectively.
