Bournemouth vs Coventry City

Dominic Solanke, Bournemouth, Championship

With the relentless pace of the Championship a Bournemouth wobble was always going to happen, and defeat at Derby last weekend coupled with a draw against Millwall in midweek means Cherries fans will be sitting a little less comfortably ahead of their game against Coventry.

Looking further back, the men from the south coast have won just one of their last four games and have seen Fulham leapfrog them at the top of the table. And with the Cottagers playing at lunchtime, Bournemouth could find themselves four points behind Marco Silva's men when they kick off at the Vitality Stadium.

Coventry have also had a quiet week with a pair of 0-0 draws dropping them to fifth, and while their league position is still strong, Mark Robins will be concerned that his side have lost their scoring touch ahead of one of their toughest assignments of the campaign.

The Cherries' recent form is worrying but there was enough of a response at Millwall for us to believe they can get back to winning ways against a Sky Blues side with just one victory in their last seven away games.

Dominic Solanke found the net once again against Millwall and it's now eight goals in his last seven games for the former Liverpool man, and we're backing Solanke to fire his team to victory once again.

Stoke City vs Blackburn Rovers

Ben Brereton Diaz, Blackburn Rovers, Championship

Speaking of in-form strikers, Blackburn have one of their own in Ben Brereton Diaz, who netted his 15th and 16th Championship goals this season in a 4-0 demolition of Peterborough last time out.

That win was Rovers' fourth in their last six games and Tony Mowbray's men are handily-placed in seventh, just three points behind West Brom in third.

Their clash with Stoke has the potential to be the game of the day, with the Potters lying just one point and one place ahead of Blackburn after three wins in their last four games, but a loss at Bristol City in midweek was not the ideal preparation for Rovers' visit.

And we reckon the hosts will struggle to contain a Blackburn side who have scored 33 goals this season, a record bettered only by the top two.

However, Stoke have failed to find the net just once in nine home games this season, so with little to choose between the two sides, both teams to score looks like a worthy addition to our acca.

Hull City vs Millwall

Hull City, Richard Smallwood, Championship

Out of nowhere Hull City have pieced together a three-game winning streak and they will be feeling a whole lot better after climbing out of the Championship relegation zone.

George Honeyman and Keane Lewis-Potter have both netted twice in that period and at the other end Grant McCann's men have not conceded a goal, and we reckon their match against Millwall can't come soon enough for the hosts.

However, Gary Rowett's men will be a tough nut to crack as Millwall have lost just one of their last seven games, and a thoroughly-deserved 1-1 draw against Bournemouth last time out was a real statement of intent.

Millwall are also one of the stingiest sides in the division with only the top three having conceded less than their 19 goals, and away from home they have shipped one goal or less in all but one of their nine matches this campaign.

Millwall's last five and Hull's previous six games have produced less than three goals, so under 2.5 is our selection here.

Swansea vs Reading

Reading, Championship, 2021

In just six weeks Reading have gone from promotion contenders to relegation battlers after a wretched run of five losses in their last seven games and a six-point deduction for breaching financial rules.

And while they won't be getting much sympathy from the Derby area, with the form they are in a financial penalty was the last thing that Reading needed and the pressure is mounting on Royals boss Veljko Paunovic.

After their most recent loss against Sheffield United in midweek, Paunovic talked about fatigue affecting his side, which is a worrying sign with over half of the Championship season still to come.

Reading face another uphill task against a Swansea side moving in the right direction after three wins and a draw in their last five games, and the Swans find themselves in the top half of the Championship for the first time this season.

Even taking into account the unpredictability of the Championship it really is difficult to make a case for anything but a Swansea win, so we have no hesitation in taking the tasty price on offer for the home victory.

Birmingham vs Blackpool

Troy Deeney, Birmingham City, Championship, 2021

Three draws in their last three games against promotion-chasing QPR, West Brom and Swansea has given Blackpool a nice platform to push on against an out of sorts Birmingham outfit at St Andrews.

The hosts are winless in three and while a 0-0 draw at promotion-chasing Coventry last time out ended a two-game losing streak, the sending off of midfielder Ryan Collins was ill-timed, as injury-hit Birmingham will now be without his services for three matches.

The Tangerines have lost just two of their last 12 games and Neil Critchley's men also have the extra incentive that a win would take them into the top half of the table for the first time this season.

However, scoring goals has been a problem of late for the Tangerines, with just three in their last five matches, and with Birmingham scoring just once in their last three games, under 2.5 goals is the latest addition to our acca.

Peterborough vs Barnsley

Barnsley's Callum Sytles looks dejected after their match against Swansea City

A Championship basement battle may not be the most obvious place to look for a value bet, but we think we've found one at the ABAX Stadium.

The hosts are third from bottom of the Championship and have lost four and drawn one of their last five games, including a soul-destroying 4-0 defeat at Blackburn last time out.

However, it's an even sorrier tale in South Yorkshire as the only thing keeping Barnsley from the bottom of the table is Derby's points deduction, as the Tykes have lost 12 out of 19 games this season and 10 of their last 11.

Barnsley's dire form cost manager Markus Schopp his job but the appointment of Poya Asbaghi did not have the desired effect and it was the same old story last time out in a 2-0 loss against Swansea.

Barnsley are also the lowest scorers in the division with just 13 goals to their name, while Peterborough have netted just 17 times, but a deeper look into the stats paints an even grimmer picture for both sides.

And that's because Peterborough are bottom of the league when it comes to shots this season in all competitions, with an average of just below seven per match, while Barnsley aren't faring much better with an average of 8.4 shots per game.

So it won't surprise you that we're going for under 2.5 goals in a game that looks for all the world like being a war of attrition between two sides severely lacking in quality.
