There was little change in bwin’s Championship winner predictions over the weekend after seven of the top 10 won and the other three drew.
Most of the matches went to form and only QPR’s failure to beat Middlesbrough at home denied us a near-22/1 payout with our Championship predictions for Saturday.
West Brom continue to lead the way with a two-point advantage heading into the latest international break and can be backed at 9/4 for the title.
The Baggies didn’t have it all their own way at Hull on Saturday but Jake Livermore (pictured), who spent three and a half seasons as a Tigers player before joining West Brom in 2017, scored the only goal in the 28th minute, firing home from distance.
Albion boss Slaven Bilic said: “I am very proud of the performance and it was a clean sheet, 1-0, a tough away game, a very tough away game, the only thing that was missing was the second goal.”
Home help for North End
Preston and Leeds are continuing to breathe down West Brom’s necks and North End are second on goal difference after ending Huddersfield’s seven-match unbeaten run with a 3-1 win at Deepdale.
Jayden Stockley headed his first of the season as he reacted quickest to a free-kick, before Alan Browne doubled the lead.
Paul Gallagher sealed the victory after the break by converting from the spot, with Juninho Bacuna pulling one back for Huddersfield.
“I am really pleased, not just with today but with our form in recent weeks,” said Preston boss Alex Neil. “Today is another three points for us, with three goals to go with it, and we stay unbeaten at home.
“The important thing now for us in the coming weeks is to keep momentum going, we have a great run of form going and the players are confident. The players can be very proud of the run that we are on right now.”
Patrick Bamford ended his 10-game goal drought for the Whites by scoring the opener from the penalty spot and then set up Jack Harrison for the second.
Despite Derrick Williams halving the deficit, Leeds held on for a 2-1 win but Marcelo Bielsa still wants his team to be more ruthless.
“At that moment (2-0) it was difficult to think the opponent could score, but after they scored, everything changed,” he said.
“After we scored twice, we had 10 or 12 chances, but in the first and the second half we had a lot of spaces to attack. We didn’t take advantage of that as much as we should.”
Fulham are third on 8/1 in the Championship outright betting after another Aleksandar Mitrovic goal proved to be the winner at Birmingham and left the Cottagers in seventh – seven points behind the leaders.
Brentford are 20/1 after an impressive 3-0 win at Wigan, although they are still only ninth.
