There’s nothing to separate a clutch of teams in the Championship and two of them meet tonight at St Andrew’s in search of a win that that would help separate them from the pack.

Ten teams are separated by just two points from 5th place to 14th. West Brom are the team at the head of the pack, one point ahead of tonight’s West Midlands Derby opponents Birmingham City.

The Baggies have made a patchy start to the season, winning only four but their 4-0 win at the previously unbeaten Preston last weekend made the rest of the Championship sit up and take notice. They followed that up with a 1-0 win against Sheffield Wednesday in a match they totally dominated so they bring some momentum with them in to tonight’s derby.

After a strong start to the season Birmingham six without a win (L4 D2) before stopping the rot in midweek with a comprehensive 4-1 win over 19th place Huddersfield.

That win puts a bit of a different complexion on tonight’s match and the bookies are finding it hard to separate them with the hosts at 13/8 versus Albion at 7/4. At a push, West Brom’s greater firepower could be the deciding factor.

In Germany, Mainz have had a tough start to the season and prop up the Bundesliga after six matches where they’ve only picked up one point.

They face another tricky night at Borussia Monchengladbach who picked up their first win of the season last weekend.

The fixture computer hasn’t been kind to the Foals who had to play three of the current top five in their first six games so they’ll relish the chance to put another three points on the board against the bottom-of-the-table side at 11/10. They can also notch a couple of goals. In their other three matches they've notched 10 goals and can add another two at 4/5 this evening.

Leagues Tipped:
  1. CornerThat 9 months ago

    No luck with yesterday’s bets. One corner short at villareal and West Ham downed the acca early doors.

    Onto tonight one game I like is gladbach v Mainz. Looked at match corners but Mainz don’t like corners much. Gladbach however do! I feel the prices are generous but we’ll see.

    A single on gladbach over 5 team corners at 11/8
    Half unit on gladbach over 6 team corners at 12/5

    Good luck

    Early start
    Sorry for this waffle

    China v Uzbekistan

    Last match was 6-0 china. 1-0 at half time

    Japan v Korea
    Haven’t played each other for a few years


    China match over 3.5 gls
    China winning half time
    Japan match over 2.5 gls
    Japan match over 0.5 first half goals

    China over 5

    Japans last match against china finished 4-3 so chance of goals. Might chuck a couple of quid on over 5.5. 10/1

    Stumbled on this on b365.
    A builder double.
    Over 5 in the china game
    Over 3 in the Japan game.

    I’ve went for this.

    Liverpool v Brighton (SUN)
    Over 3.5 goals at 4/5
    Over 4.5 goals at 2/1

    Arsenal v Man City
    Man City to win at 7/5 (NAP)
    Saka is a doubt for this game after picking up an injury against Lens midweek and even if he’s 80% it would be foolish of the Arsenal manager to risk playing him so early in the season, whatever happens here isn’t going to determine the outcome of the Premier League winner and Arsenal have bigger games ahead, they have to think long term. Rodri is also out as he serves the last of his 3 match ban for violent conduct. It’s fair to say City aren’t the same team without Rodri that’s evident in recent results but they did pick up an impressive win away to Leipzig midweek which will boost them heading in to this game and Rodri did play that game and I would say that’s why we are getting 7/5 on City to win. Arteta never get’s the better of Pep when it comes to this fixture and with Saka almost certainly out they really do struggle to offer much up front again that was evident in their loss to lens, with all that in mind City look a good bit of value.
    Best of luck for the weekend.

    Brighton v Liverpool*

  6. warktheline 9 months ago

    SILKEBORG over 9 match corners 4/5
    LYNGBY over 4 team corners 11/8.

    Tonight’s visitors have a great corner ratio on the road under Icelandic manager Alexandersson, going back over their last 10 they’ve recorded 4+ in 9 (and a solitary corner against at the time, a well marshalled Brondby). Those 9 games in combined match corners exceeded over 9+! The hosts corner stats is a little miss and hit, but for the majority of games they’ve contributed reasonably well, under long term manager Neilson, they’ve notched up 4 and over, in 7 of last 10 home fixtures . Interestingly these two sides playing each other ( reverse fixtures ) under their current managers have produced the following, 6-6, 8-3, 7-3, 7-4!

    Good luck all with bets today ! 👍
