IT'S another busy night of action as we look forward to the last round of matches in the UCL group stages and there are six games from the English Championship.
Salzburg were a big letdown last night as were Ajax who battered Valencia but were unable to make the breakthrough despite dominating and that cost us a 9/4 winner on all 8 UCL games over 1.5 goals. Chelsea and Lyon goals double landed at 6/4 and I was pleased I decided to leave the total goals market as 28+ was just too high (23 scored).
I really like the look of tonight's English Championship card – we should see goals from the six fixtures.
English Championship Total Goals – 6 Matches (7.45pm)
I've been championing the total goals market for some time now and I've had a fantastic response to it on the site and on Twitter with more and more people now backing the market as a result.
Its a market I rarely get wrong when I choose to do it and is one of my most profitable markets to back this season.
Looking through tonight's fixtures West Broms's trip to Wigan immediately stands out. They are the league's top scorers with 42 goals and play a side sitting second bottom and without a win in eight and who have conceded at least two goals in each of their last seven matches.
In stark contrast, WBA are flying, six wins on the spin and come into this off the back of a 5-1 hammering of Swansea.
Bottom side Barnsley have seen both teams score in 11 of their last 12 – 10 of which went over 2.5 goals with nine of those seeing over 3.5 goals. They host a Reading side who have just beaten fellow strugglers Wigan 3-1.
Sheffield Wednesday are in great shape at the moment – both sides have scored in their last six games with five of those seeing at leastthree3 goals. Steven Fletcher is in the form of his life at the moment and they travel to play a Derby side who have been strong at home. Another candidate for both teams to score.
Blackburn are another side in great shape having won five of their last six to propel themselves to within touching distance of the play offs. Seven of their last eight away matches have seen over 2.5 goals and play a Swansea side without a win in five and who have won just one of their last seven home matches.
Another game where we should see both teams score is Birmingham vs QPR. The visitors have conceded in every away game this season. In fact, they have only kept one clean sheet this season home and away and that was last week in what was their first clean sheet in 23 matches.
As always, with six games, it's not unreasonable to think a couple of these games could deliver 4+ goals. There are some cracking matches with teams who are flying against sides who are really struggling.
Really excited by this card and I'm hoping we'll see plenty of goals.
