Championship TV tips for August 12 and 13
Although the Premier League returns this weekend, there’s also Championship TV tips to be had with two live offerings.
Brighton and Hove Albion v Nottingham Forest is first up on Friday night, and that is followed by Norwich City v Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday teatime.
What are the best bets for these games? Coral football experts give their Championship TV tips for Brighton v Forest and Norwich v Sheff Wed.
Brighton win and both teams score
Three of the last five head-to-heads between Albion and the Tricky Trees have ended in the south coast side winning, but also conceding.
Although Chris Hughton’s side do boast a decent defensive record, there’s a fit-again Britt Assombalonga to contend with among visiting ranks, so backing Brighton at a terrific 13/4 price for victory but with both teams on target makes sense.
Lewis Dunk scores anytime
Forest haven’t kept a clean sheet so far this term, and sealed just two in 10 shut-outs against the Seagulls. A surprise source of goals in recent games between the two has been centre back Dunk, with a couple in the previous three.
At a superb 6/1 price to net anytime again, Dunk is well worth a punt from among our Championship TV tips because of his set-piece nous.
Norwich to win by exactly two goals
When last welcoming Sheffield Wednesday to Carrow Road, the Canaries put two past them without reply. While a repeat scoreline comes in as a 17/2 chance, there’s a slightly safer bet at 24/5 for Norwich to win by precisely a couple of goals.
On paper, the Norfolk outfit look a brace better than Carlos Carvalhal’s Steel City side, who were beaten Championship play-off finalists.
Cameron Jerome scores anytime
Norwich striker Jerome is a proven Championship performer with four in eight career starts against the Owls. He also found the target as Alex Neil’s men thrashed Blackburn Rovers 4-1 away in their league opener.
Taking all that into account, 17/10 odds for Jerome in the anytime scorer market has to be among our Championship TV tips.
