Championship Betting Tips: Wednesday Woes Worsened at Wycombe
After a frustrating few weeks of near misses, it was good to get the second full house of season in midweek.
Millwall and Ivan Toney to score in particular were very good odds so hopefully you kept the faith!
Can't promise as bulky odds this weekend though.
It's not me playing safe, but more down to me genuinely struggling to find much value.
A lot of the games are tough to call with a lot of variables in play.
I can see a few draws coming this weekend but I don't particularly like backing them.
Instead, here are my best bets this weekend:
Cardiff to win to nil against QPR - 3/1 (Bet 365)
If there is any value in the Championship this weekend, this is the best I could find.
Many were tipping the Bluebirds for a promotion push this season, at the very least the Playoffs, but they've picked up just two wins so far.
However, I think they've been a bit unlucky.
Neil Harris' side were the better in both the draws against Derby and Middlesbrough over the past 7 days, and a win is coming.
QPR on the other hand haven't won since the opening day and there can't be many arguments for them deserving differently.
Rangers have failed to score in their last four and have managed just five shots on target in that time.
The expected goals going forwards is also well at the bottom of the league.
It's not been made any easier for Mark Warburton after star man Bright Osayi-Samuel was left out of the squad in midweek for refusing to sign a new contract.
I struggle to see QPR breaking down a sturdy Cardiff defence and with the Bluebirds attacking options like Kieffer Moore, Harry Wilson and Sheyi Ojo, they should score at least one.
Millwall to beat Huddersfield - 21/20 (Bet Victor)
Gary Rowett's side are ever improving.
Listeners to the podcast will know we tipped them to finish in the Playoffs this season.
After a dodgy start, the Lions have now got going which is not good news for the rest of the Championship.
The midweek win over Preston was brilliantly comfortable, particularly defensively with Shaun Hutchinson, Murray Wallace and Jake Cooper rock solid at the back.
Going forwards, Jed Wallace is starting to replicate his terrific form from last season and new signing Kenneth Zohore has been a welcome addition up front in terms of linking up play.
They should be able to deal with a Huddersfield side who have gone off the ball in their last couple of games.
Despite having 77% possession in the defeat to Birmingham in midweek, they failed to create any particularly good chances and failed to impress in the loss against Preston too.
I think Huddersfield will have a better season than many expected at the start of the season but will struggle against a Millwall side who are heading towards top gear.
I thought the Lions would be odds-on so 21/20 looks generous.
Wycombe double chance against Wednesday - 10/11 (Sky Bet)
If you told me a few weeks ago that I'd be tipping Wycombe, I'd have laughed in your face.
The fact is though they've been a lot better in recent games.
The point that Gareth Ainsworth's side earned in midweek against Watford has been coming, and they really should have got all three.
A goal was controversially ruled out for a foul on Ben Foster, Adebayo Akinfenwa missed an open goal and in general they had much the better chances.
The games against Norwich and Reading they could have easily snatched points in as well.
I was close to tipping the draw here, but when you look at how Wednesday have played recently... whisper it... but I think Wycombe could beat them.
The last three performances by the Owls have been rather torrid, especially in midweek when they were thumped 3-0 by Rotherham.
Wednesday had a man sent off but the performance that came afterwards was incredibly poor and fans are losing patience with manager Garry Monk.
They're far too short to win here and as long as Gareth Ainsworth's men continue to improve, 10/11 looks a nailed on bet to have this weekend.
