Derby, Ipswich, Wigan in 9/2 midweek Championship treble
Fancy some midweek betting action on the last league football of 2014? Coral can oblige with enhanced odds of 9/2 available on a hat-trick of Championship home wins for Derby County, Ipswich Town and Wigan Athletic.
Steve McClaren’s Rams battle Leeds United, Mick McCarthy and his Suffolk side clash with Charlton Athletic, and the Latics entertain Sheffield Wednesday.
Each of these three featured teams are odds-on or short-price favourites for victory, so your best bet is to take this boosted price by combining them. Read on to learn other specific reasons why this tasty treble will come off.
Derby v Leeds
County crushed United 3-1 in this fixture last term, with key forward players Chris Martin and Johnny Russell on the scoresheet. McClaren is odds-on at 8/15 to oversee Derby defeating Leeds once again.
Scotland internationals Martin and Russell were both on target in the Boxing Day battering of Birmingham City, so back either to score again anytime at 10/11 and 6/5 respectively.
Ipswich v Charlton
As McCarthy’s men have lost just once at home all season and already beaten the Addicks in the reverse fixture, the hosts are worthy odds-on 8/13 favourites for three points.
It’s one win in 10 for Charlton, and here they will come up against the Championship’s leading marksman Daryl Murphy. A brace against Brentford on Boxing Day took him onto 16 for the season. Back Republic of Ireland forward Murphy to net again anytime at 7/5.
Wigan v Sheffield Wednesday
The Latics did the double over the Owls last term, and that is why they start as 23/20 favourites to beat them again. Wednesday have failed to score in open play for three games, and lost two of those matches coming into this encounter.
Wigan can rely on wingers James McClean (5/2 in the anytime market) and Callum McManaman (11/5) for goals here. They have eight between them, and face an Owls team that have kept a clean sheet just once in the last five.
