Leicester City to beat Sheffield United – 21/20*
After sacking Premier League-winning coach Claudio Ranieri last season as relegation beckoned, Craig Shakespeare’s men soon crawled up the table and finished the campaign strong.
And, it seems as though this momentum has carried on into this term, with the high-flying Foxes’ recent win over Prem new-boys Brighton and Hove Albion and an entertaining defeat to Arsenal on the opening day.
Expect a rejuvenated Shakespeare side to sweep aside their Steel City opponents.
Watford to beat Bristol City – 3/4*
Appointing former Hull City boss Marco Silva seems to have worked wonders for the Hornets, drawing their PL curtain raiser to Liverpool 3-3 and collecting three points away at Bournemouth last weekend.
Meanwhile, their Championship opposition currently sit 11th after five games, winless after their opening league outing.
After Watford’s terrific start to the new term, Silva’s side will surely have enough to see them past the Robins.
West Ham United to beat Cheltenham Town – 2/5*
Even with the Hammers in the midst of poor form, Slaven Bilic’s side are still PL opponents and should bury League Two’s Cheltenham with ease.
The Robins are coming off a disappointing 3-0 loss to Carlisle United, so back West Ham to compound their misery.
Nottingham Forest to beat Newcastle United – 11/2*
Rafael Benitez’s Magpies have lost each of their two games back in the PL and doubts already surround the Spaniard’s future at St James’ Park.
Travelling Forest on the other hand are fourth in the Championship and should be in the hunt for automatic promotion this season.
Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers to draw – 16/5*
Nuno Espirito Santo’s Wolves have flown out the league blocks and won three of their first four Championship games, currently lying third in the table.
The West Midlands men have benefited from fresh investment over the last calendar year and look destined to bag a promotion place at the very least.
Meanwhile, the Saints only just scraped past a 10-men West Ham side this weekend.
