Bournemouth, Middlesbrough, Wolves in 4/1 Championship treble

Championship top eight sides Bournemouth, Middlesbrough and Wolves battle bottom 10 opposition this weekend, so Coral offer odds of 4/1 that the promotion hopefuls all win in an enhanced and tasty treble.

Eddie Howe’s table-topping Cherries travel to Rotherham United, while Aitor Karanka sees his Boro side host Huddersfield Town and the Wanderers of Wolverhampton face beleaguered Blackpool, who prop up the second tier.

Punters should note each of the three featured teams in this boosted price bet are individual odds-on favourites, so to get the best value you need to take advantage of this awesome offer.

Read on to discover specific reasons why this trio of top Championship clubs are a cut above the relegation battlers and mediocre mid-table opposition they’ve been paired with here.

Rotherham v Bournemouth
Howe sent out his reserves in a thumping 5-1 FA Cup third round win for the Cherries at the New York Stadium just a fortnight ago. It’s no wonder Bournemouth are odds-on 10/11 favourites for victory again, then.

On their last two visits to Rotherham, the south coast side have scored a total of eight times, so they should fill their boots once more here. Yann Kermorgant netted twice in the cup clash, and is 5/4 in the anytime market, as well as a 7/1 shot for another brace or better.

Middlesbrough v Huddersfield
As Boro boast a strong home record and the Terriers have won just twice away from home in the league all season, Karanka’s charges start as worthy odds-on 4/6 favourites for three points.

Middlesbrough have three major threats that Huddersfield will struggle to contain. Midfielder Grant Leadbitter, who netted twice in the reverse fixture, is a 2/1 anytime scorer chance. Winger Albert Adomah, meanwhile, bagged a brace against this opposition last term, and is 11/4 in that market. On-loan Chelsea forward Patrick Bamford is a 6/5 chance.

Wolves v Blackpool
Lee Clark’s Tangerines are eight points from safety, while Wanderers sit a point outside the play-off places. That is why Wolves are odds-on at 4/7 to win this home game.

Kenny Jackett has pulled off a coup by bringing MK Dons loan star Benfik Afobe to Molineux on a permanent deal from Arsenal. The attacker’s blistering form in League One suggests he can cut in the Championship. Back Afobe to cap his Wolves bow with a goal to ensure they win to nil at 7/5.
