Diogo Jota bets among Championship tips for October 21-22
FootyOn’s Championship tips for October 21-22 include Diogo Jota bets and wins for Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Millwall.
We are about 30 per cent of the way through the Championship season and matchday 13 may prove unlucky for Cardiff City.
Neil Warnock takes the Bluebirds to Middlesbrough, while leaders Wolves host Preston North End and Sheffield United face Reading.
This week’s TV offerings are Millwall v Birmingham City and the East Anglia derby as Norwich City go to Ipswich Town.
What bets look worth wagers? Read on as we reveal our Championship tips for October 21-22…
Middlesbrough v Cardiff: Home win and BTTS a value bet
Boro have a strong recent record when battling the Bluebirds at The Riverside, landing their last three encounters.
Garry Monk’s men have conceded four goals in their last two games, however, so may struggle to keep Cardiff out.
That is in keeping with this fixture, though, as the Welsh capital club have scored in each of those three previous visit to Middlesbrough.
Backing a home win and both teams to score at a best-price 4/1 with BetVictor makes sense, then.
Wolves v Preston: Diogo Jota bets worth a punt to break deadlock
Portugal youth international Diogo Jota is back in-form for Championship leaders Wolves.
He has grabbed the opening goal on both his last two starts and now comes up against a North End defence that has shipped four in two.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side should be beating plucky Preston, who look to be punching well above their weight under Alex Neil.
Diogo Jota bets of 7/2 in the first goalscorer market with Paddy Power appeal here.
Sheffield United v Reading: Back Blades for win to nil
High-flying Sheffield United are surpassing all expectations in their first season back in the Championship.
They sit third in the table, while last season’s beaten play-off finalists Reading are fifth from bottom.
As the Blades have won their last two home games to nil and the Royals are struggling, that outcome is taken again.
BetVictor are 23/10 about a Sheffield United win without conceding to their Berkshire-based opposition.
Millwall v Birmingham: Lions can roar and give Cotterill the Blues
Live on Sky Sports Football, kick-off: 17:30 BST.
The Den is a hostile place for any team to go at the best of time, but Birmingham are in really poor away form.
Although winning new boss Steve Cotterill’s first game in charge, the Blues have picked up a single point on their travels this term so far.
Millwall, meanwhile, have earned 10 of 13 points in front of their own fans.
Back the Lions at a best-price 13/10 with Paddy Power for a Saturday teatime win.
Ipswich v Norwich: Draw the East Anglia derby bet
Live on Sky Sports Football, kick-off: 12:00 BST.
Suffolk side Ipswich have drawn 1-1 with bitter Norfolk rivals Norwich in both of the last two derbies at Portman Road.
That makes a 13/2 correct score punt with BetVictor on that precise result again tempting.
It’s safer, however, to go for draw regardless of the scoreline at 23/10 with the same bookmaker.
The Canaries have drawn three of their last four encounters with the Tractor Boys, and three of their previous seven games this season.
