Sky Bet - Betting Preview

12 February 2016

Fancy a bet this weekend? Take a look at some of the odds...

Sky Bet Championship
Promotion-chasing Burnley are 19/10 to leave the Madejski Stadium with all three points when they take on 6/4 Reading in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday. Reading have netted just eight goals in their last 13 games, so the 7/2 for Burnley to win to nil may be tempting. The Clarets have won six of their last nine, with four of those victories coming without reply. Andre Gray remains the division’s leading goalscorer and is 9/2 to open the scoring in this one.
Derby County
Derby look to get back to winning ways with their first ever home league game against the MK Dons. It’s 1/2 that the Rams get those three vital points, with the visitors – who have no away win since the opening day - 6/1 and the draw 3/1. Derby won the only previous league meeting with MK Dons back in September 3-1 – a repeat of that scoreline is a 12/1 chance with Sky Bet. Chris Martin is 7/2 to score first and 11/8 to score anytime.
Ipswich Town
Ipswich look to take advantage of the Sky Bet Championship’s worst home record when they travel to Bristol City on Saturday, and Town are 15/8 to inflict another defeat on the Robins. The hosts are 7/5, with the draw 11/5. Ipswich have a good record against the Robins, with five wins and five draws in the last 11 league meetings and are 1/2 in the double-chance market. Ipswich are 4/1 to win to nil, and 11/4 to win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.
Nottingham Forest
Forest have won five of their last six against Huddersfield at home and are 5/4 to make that six out of seven in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash, with the Terriers 23/10 outsiders and the draw an 11/5 chance. With Forest on a 13-game unbeaten run and Huddersfield scoring in their last 12 matches, Forest to win and both teams to score looks a decent 4/1 shot. Nelson Oliveira has scored six goals in his last 10 league starts and is 2/1 to score on Saturday - it’s 11/2 he nets the opener.
Rotherham United
Rotherham bid to complete a Sky Bet Championship double over Birmingham this season and are 15/8 with the Football League sponsors to get the job done. The visitors are 7/5 and the draw 12/5.
Matt Derbyshire has scored two in two for the Millers against Birmingham and is 2/1 to find the target once again. He opened the scoring in the reverse fixture – a 6/1 chance this time around.

The Millers are 12/1 to repeat September’s 2-0 victory over Birmingham; while it’s 11/4 they win 1-0, 2-0 or 2-1.
Wolves are 5/4 favourites for victory in Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship clash with Preston at Molineux, with the visitors 23/10. Wolves have drawn their last three games, and it’s 11/5 they record four successive draws for the first time since December 2005. Preston have seen plenty of draws themselves, including a division-high seven goalless encounters – an outcome that can be backed at 7/1 here. Wolves, though, have scored in 20 of their last 21 home league games against Preston and are 17/2 to win 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2.
