As is the case every August, ravenous football fans emerging on the other side of domestic soccer’s summer hibernation are able to gorge themselves with dangerous quantities of lower-league matches.
Another full fixture card is pencilled in this midweek and we’ve picked out a trio of sure-fire profit generators from three games taking place in the Championship tonight to ensure news.bwin.com/en/ patrons bolster the contents of their wallet when treading these tempestuous waters.
Bolton to beat Middlesbrough @ 8/5
Were it not for an inexplicably disallowed Albert Adomah goal, Boro would surely have cruised to victory over Leeds last time out.
Comedic refereeing decisions aside, even a flawless record in 2014/15 wouldn’t have instilled much confidence about an away win amongst the savviest of the betting masses ahead of their trip to the recently christened Macron Stadium.
Whatever moniker Bolton’s ground has been sporting, the Teessiders have found it impossible to claim the spoils here.
They’ve returned winless from their previous 13 visits, losing seven in a dismal run that spans four decades.
Under 1.5 goals in Sheffield Wednesday v Millwall @ 21/10
This previously porous pair have tightened up for the new season after fraternising with relegation in the recently-concluded instalment.
In six competitive games between them this term they’re yet to concede a solitary goal.
Their league meetings in 2013/14 produced two stalemates and it looks as though their shared defensive rigidity will ensure parity is maintained at Hillsborough.
Brave wager-makers take note – a goalless draw pays out at 27/4.
Rotherham to beat Watford & over 2.5 goals @ 17/4
The erroneously located New York Stadium has quickly become something resembling a fortress for the Millers and few would argue that their second-tier survival hopes hinge on their ability to replicate last season’s form on the home front.
Watford arrive in south Yorkshire to face a side that has bested ten of the previous 14 foes to step onto their turf, with seven of these wins being accompanied by 2.5 strikes.
The Hornets have been beaten in eight of their last 13 sojourns, but failed to bag just three times in this grief-stricken period so bank on the goals flowing.
