A foray into the second tier of English football may well bring another winner for news.bwin.com’s illustrious team of tipsters on their never-ending quest to deliver the best-value enhanced multiples to the masses.
The portfolio of successfully-boosted punts – known to bwin patrons as Combi+ – we’ve tipped up has grown significantly fatter in recent weeks and today we’re siding with three teams who, much like the content you’ll find on this website, are entertaining, reliable and oozing quality.
Brentford, Cardiff and Rotherham are the Championship trio who’ll do the business for us when they don’t lose on their respective trips to Derby, Leeds and Middlesbrough to land backers an enormous 8/1 bounty.
Here are the stats explaining how they’re going to do it:
Brentford win or draw double-chance v Derby @ 17/20
Those who rely solely on the form tables when formulating their weekend accumulator will be all over the Bees here.
Mark Warburton’s men would sit a lofty fifth based on their last ten games, despite losing last time out, whereas Derby are languishing in 15th.
The Rams prevailed last time out, but they’d failed to win the seven that preceded it, losing four of these.
Brentford were the victors when the sides did battle at Griffin Park earlier in the piece.
Cardiff win or draw double-chance v Leeds @ 1/2
As far as head-to-head records go, the Bluebirds’ recent dominance over their loathed west Yorkshire rivals is pretty difficult to argue with.
Not since 1984 have Russell Slade’s troops been bested by Leeds, with the south Wales side winning nine of their last 11.
Cardiff are undefeated in six on their travels, conceding just four on this invincible streak.
Neil Redfearn’s men, by contrast, have failed to beat four of their last six visitors based in the bottom half of the division.
Rotherham win or draw double-chance v Middlesbrough @ 37/20
Boro take some beating on home turf; Leeds are the only visitor in ten to return from the Riverside having survived a vanquishing, but how they managed this given the dominance of Aitor Karanka’s men in this match was dumbfounding.
Away from home though, there aren’t many Championship teams worse at the moment, suggesting the heat of the promotion race is getting too much for the Teessiders.
These road wobbles could yet impact their stellar form on the homestead, which gives the Millers hope, despite five losses in their last six sojourns.
