Boxing Day Championship Treble
Barnsley vs West Brom: Both Teams to Score - 1.53
Barnsley comes into this match on a decent run of home form, winning three, drawing two and losing one. Both Teams to Score has landed in all five of those matches. Indeed, Both Teams to Score has landed in the last eight home Barnsley matches in a row.
West Brom are sitting pretty atop of the Championship and look a good shout for automatic promotion, they’re on a great run of form that has seen them lose just once in their last 15 matches in the Championship. Manager Slavin Bilic has them playing some great football, but most impressively of all he’s instilled some grit and determination into this team that hasn’t been seen by Baggies fans in a long time.
They’ve kept a few Clean Sheets of late on the road but Barnsley’s scoring record at home means we have to look at Both Teams to Score here at 1.53.
Hull vs Nottingham Forest: Both Teams to Score - 1.69
We have 11th taking on 10th here with the winner possibly being able to leap up to sixth position should other results go their way. Hull’s home form of late is quite impressive, they’ve won four of their last five, losing the other one. Forest’s isn’t quite so good, but they’ve won two, drawn two and lost one of their last five on their travels in the Championship.
Both Teams to Score has landed in 50% of Hull’s home Championship games this season and in 67% of Forest’s away matches and over their five last meetings between the sides at the KCOM Stadium this bet would have landed in 4/5 matches.
Hull have a decent record of Clean Sheets at home but they’re conceding 1.17 goals per Championship match at home and Forest are scoring 1.50 goals per game on their travels so we’re looking at Both Teams to Score again here at 1.69.
Leeds United vs Preston North End: Leeds to Win - 1.40
Leeds can overtake West Brom at the top of the table with a win here so long as West Brom don’t beat Barnsley in the earlier kickoff. Leeds are on a great run at Elland Road lately; they’ve won six and drawn one of their last seven Championship matches at home. The same cannot be said of Preston, even though they started the season quite well, they’re winless in their last four on their Championship travels, losing three and drawing one. To make things even worse for the Lilywhites, they’ve scored no goals across those four matches.
Elland Road isn’t a happy hunting ground for the visitors either, of their last seven visits there, Leed have won four, Preston have won two and one has ended as a draw. The momentum is with Leeds here and with Preston being so woeful on the road it’s hard to look beyond yet another home win for Leeds, currently priced at 1.40.
All of these picks into a treble will give you odds of around 3.80.
