While Fulham continue to lead the way in the Championship the picture below them is much less clear.

Bournemouth look the most likely to be promoted in second place, with a four point lead and games in hand on the teams below them but they face a tricky fixture tonight with Nottingham Forest the visitors.

The Cherries suffered an embarrassing exit in the FA Cup at the hands of Boreham Wood but either side of that they've won their last three in the league and that is undoubtedly Scott Parker's main focus. Those wins have got things back on track after consecutive defeats to Hull and Preston.

Forest have received lots of plaudits since the arrival of Steve Cooper in September, none moreso than for their FA Cup wins over Arsenal and Leicester City whom they trounced 4-1 at the City Ground. Those results were impressive enough but Cooper has also overseen a rise from the relegation zone to play-off contenders, losing just four of his 23 league games in charge – and three of those to teams currently above them in the table.

Forest at 15/4 look a little on the big side, especially when you consider they've picked up more points on the road than at home. You can keep the draw onside by backing them on the Double Chance market at 10/11 (better odds of 2.070 on the Asian Handicap +0.5) or Draw No Bet at 12/5.

In Italy, Juventus have had the upper hand in the Turin Derby. You have to go back to 2015 for Torino's last win, a run of 15 meetings without a victory and that doesn't look like ending tonight. Juve are nine points off the pace in Serie A but can't be ruled out of the title race just yet and should claim the three points at 3/5.

In Germany, Bayer leverjusen have been on fire lately. Four wins in a row have seen them score 15 goals and move within five points of third placed Borussia Dortmund. Tonight's opponents, Mainz, have a good home record though so rather than take the 6/5 on Leverkusen win back them to keep their to leave with at least a point on the Double Chance market in a double with Juve.

    Main bet tonight ,

    Rotherham vs Wigan

    Over 2.5 mg’s 6/5 skybet

    1st vs 2nd here and I’m expecting an open game as Wigan are only 6 points off rotherham with 2 games in hand on them and 5 points clear of mk dons in 3rd and also 3 games in hand on them so i expect Wigan to go for it , which should hopefully lead us to goals

    Goodluck all whatever your on tonight 👍

    Small stakes

    Really fancy the Australian game to see some goals, albeit it’s a friendly, 4 out the last 5 between this pair have produced over 3.5mgs, and 3 out the 5 seeing over 5.5mgs.
    More of the same would be ideal.

    Good luck all 🤞

    France Ligue National (7 games @ 6pm)

    Over 0.5 1st half goals – 25/1 (Ladbrokes boosted)
    Over 1.5 match goals – 14/1 (Ladbrokes boosted)
    Goal in both halves – 200/1 (William Hill)

    Over 0.5 FHG came in last week, as well as 6/7 games over 1.5 match goals. Weather obviously a factor, but much of France appears to be okay now (only area which may be affected seems to be the North, but that’s been downgraded to ‘amber’ status)

    Well done all winners yesterday, excellent shouts and tips!💪👍

    17:30
    Dynamo Dresden v Heidenheim.

    Summary
    Hosts Dresden don’t set the corner stats alight but are consistent and solid with being awarded corner kicks, 8,4,5,4,10,4,4,6,4,5. Three of 4 in the sequence were against sides sitting in the top 7 of division , conceding 5,5,8. Visitors this evening currently sit 6th, averaging a shade over 5 on their travels and conceding 6. What’s interesting is the stats produced between Heidenheim and sides placed in around Dresden’s league position. 7-5,11-5,6-7,10-4! I’m expecting both sides to contribute to notching the corner tally over the line!
    Dynamo Dresden over 10 match corners 11/10
    Dynamo Dresden over 11 match corners 7/4
    *will add over 9 match corners if opportunity arises inplay.

    *weather forecast looks ok👍

    Good luck all with bets today !💪

    Shels v St Pats 745pm

    League of Ireland is back tonight and we’ve a televised game here for the Dublin derby of Shels v St Pats. Just like the UK it’s shocking windy here so I’m surprised this game is still on but nonetheless, despite conditions, I can’t help but get involved in BTTS at 11/10 (PP & Ladbrokes). Shels have had a good pre season under Damien Duff’s tutelage and the atmosphere should be fiery.. St Pats are the better team (they won the Cup last season) and have added Eoin Doyle to the ranks so I can’t see them not scoring.. but following promotion last season, I feels Shels will start the season strongly too, with some new faces being added to the squad, and I think they’ll score themselves.

    Club Deportivo Guerreros de Xico to score 7-5 (BETWAY).
    Both teams to score 13-8 (HILLS).
    Both teams to score and over 3.5 goals 2-1 (BETWAY).

    Away side are pathetic hence the prices.
    They have only scored in 2 of their 8 games but one of them was here in November
    They have conceded between 2 and 7 goals in all 8 away games.
    They have lost all 15 games since they were formed last year, and only scored in 3 of them.

    The home team will score at least 2 or 3 but what offers hope of an away goal is the fact ** they have conceded in their last 11 games **.

    Not real logic here, just hoping complacency, an own goal, red card etc might work in my favour for a change.
