Rovers can spring a Rams surprise


There’s another midweek of Championship fixtures ahead with all 24 teams in action. After a weekend of surprise results, there are some top value bets available for the latest round of matches.

We’ve sought out what we believe are the three best bets across Tuesday and Wednesday’s games.

Blackburn to win at Derby @ 49/20

Not many pundits would have predicted Blackburn would be sitting comfortably in midtable after their opening seven games, following promotion from League One last term.

But Tony Mowbray’s men (7/1 for a top-six finish) have been impressive, securing ten points from their first seven matches and losing just once – at third-placed Bristol City.

In stark contrast, much was expected from Derby after the appointment of Frank Lampard and some impressive summer arrivals.

The Rams though have lost three times, including a shock 1-0 defeat at lowly Rotherham on Saturday – another sign of their unpredictability.

Their only two home wins this season have come against teams struggling at the wrong end of the table – Ipswich and Preston – and Blackburn will provide a much sterner test.

Rovers, who won on their last trip to Pride Park, look a really tempting price at 49/20 to collect the three points, which will see them move above Derby in the table.

Wigan to beat Hull @ 20/23

Another newly promoted team that look good enough for a top-half finish are Wigan, who currently sit 11th after seven games.

Paul Cook’s side have built their solid start around a good home record, winning two and drawing one of their three Championship games at the DW Stadium so far.

Hull meanwhile, look like they are facing another season of struggle and recorded just their second win of the season against Ipswich on Saturday.

Nick Powell has already bagged twice at home in the league this season and the Wigan forward can be backed at 6/1 to score first on Tuesday.

QPR v Millwall – Draw @ 21/10

18th play 19th on Wednesday night in a London derby and QPR and Millwall look a decent bet to share the spoils.

There’s just a point separating these two sides and neither can afford a slip up in midweek.

Three of their last four meetings have ended in draws and their last three encounters at Loftus Road have also been draws. The corresponding fixture finished 2-2 last season – the same scoreline on Wednesday can be backed at 12/1.
