Championship Betting

Derby v Stoke Championship Preview, 13th March 7.45pm

Derby have some pretty unsteady form behind them at the moment, but they have still managed to cling onto a top six place. But that is a bit tenuous and they are going to have to raise their game considerably to stay there. Stoke will turn up being unbeaten in five. Read our Derby v Stoke betting tips for more.

Derby v Stoke Betting Odds*

Derby 29/20
Draw 9/4
Stoke 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 12th, 2019 at 3:35 p.m.)


Derby News and Form

Derby were held at home in a 1-1 draw by Sheffield Wednesday on the weekend. That leaves the Rams with only the one win in their last six league outings (D2 L3). So they aren’t on song at the moment at all. That result on the weekend leaves them at W9 D6 L3 for the season. Their home form hasn’t been bad with three wins in their last four at Pride Park (L1) and in all of their home wins this season in the Championship, Derby have scored at least two goals. Dery have just one clean sheet in six home games.

Home and away, the Rams have not taken a clean sheet in their last six played. So their defence has been letting them down a bit. In total Derby have taken a clean sheet in 28% of their home games this season, with both teams having scored at 61% of their home fixtures. None of their nine home win this season have been by a margin of more than two goals. The Rams have only been trailing at half time three times at home this term, conceding 61% of their home goals in the second half of fixtures.

Derby v Stoke Head to Head

Stoke claimed a 2-1 home success over Derby earlier this season
Stoke have won three of the last four meetings in all competition (L1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five meetings
Derby have lost their last two at home against Stoke by a 2-0 scoreline

Stoke News and Form

Stoke earned a point away at QPR on the weekend. That was their fourth draw in their last five games (W1). So they are proving hard to beat at the moment. Their away campaign has been a real bust for them this season with just a W2 D11 L5 record having been posted. Their last away victory was record back towards the end of October. They are on a ten-match undefeated streak of form since then on their travels. Each of their last four away games have ended up under 2.5 goals. Each of their last eight games, home and away have gone under the goal line.

Stoke have averaged under a goal per game on their travels this season. The Potters have two clean sheets in their last three away games (both 0-0 scorelines) but they have scored just one goal in their last four away from home. Stoke have taken a clean sheet in a total of one-third of their away games. Four of Stoke’s five away defeats this season have been by a two-goal margin. The Potters have only opened the scoring in five of their 18 road fixtures so far this season. They have the sixth-best defensive record in the second tier currently.

1-1 correct score at 5/1
Under 2.5 goals at 8/15

Who will win – Derby v Stoke Predictions

Stoke look to have enough about them to go and claim a point at Pride Park on the weekend. The Rams certainly are nothing too much for them to fear at the moment. The 1-1 correct score looks a solid proposition.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Prediction & Betting Tips, 25th February 2019

Nottingham Forest v Derby Championship Preview, 25th February 7.45pm

Nottingham Forest are on the outskirts of the playoff spots in the Championship and with a big task ahead of them to get into the mix. This is a big game for them and for Derby who are one place above them. The Rams are losing a bit of momentum and they too are playing catch-up with the top six. Read our Nottingham Forest v Derby betting tips for more.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Betting Odds*

Nottingham Forest 7/5
Derby 19/10
Draw 9/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)


Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest have only lost one of their last five League games, but have played out back-to-back draws heading into this one. Their home form has not been all that bad really in the Championship this season. Forest are W8 D4 L4 on home soil. Forest also won three of their last four home games (L1) including their last two. But when you look back at the bigger picture of their current form, they are just W2 D2 L3 home and away combined.

So that inconsistency is where their push for a playoff spot has hindered them. Nottingham Forest have scored 22 goals in 16 home games this season. Less than half of their League home games have ended up over 2.5 goals. They have done pretty well defensively as they have conceded at under a goal per game at home on average in the Championship.

That having been said they don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last six home fixtures. In total there has been a clean sheet for Forest in 31% of their home games. It has not been a bad season from them at all as they are currently 10 points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign. Forest have conceded 80% of their home goals in the second half of games.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Head to Head

There was a 0-0 draw between them earlier this season
The last two meetings have ended in 0-0 draws
Derby are undefeated in six against Forest (W3 D3)
Forest have failed to scored in five of their last six against the Rams

Derby News and Form

The Rams missed a chance in midweek to get back up into the top six as they suffered a shock home defeat against Millwall. While Derby are still in contention for a promotion push, they have been very inconsistent with their results. They have not won back-to-back League games since early December. In their last nine League games, they are W3 D3 L3 so it has been a bit hit and miss for them.

Overall away this season Derby have a W6 D4 L6 record on the board. The Rams are without a win in any of their last three away games and have won only one of their last five on the road (D2 L2). A big part of the problem has been a lack of clean sheets as they have managed just two all season long away from Pride Park.

Derby have scored 21 and have conceded 21 goals away from home this season. Across their last three away games, Derby have managed put just the one goal on the board had that was at current bottom side Ipswich in a 1-1 draw. But they do have the fifth best defensive record in the second tier heading into the weekend, it is not quite happening for Frank Lampard’s men at the moment.

Nottingham Forest v Derby Tips & Odds

Under 2.5 goals at 4/5 odds
Both teams not to score at 10/11
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 21st, 2019 at 3:27 p.m.)

Who will win – Nottingham Forest v Derby Predictions

The home form of Nottingham Forest hasn’t been all that bad, and as Derby are pretty much hit and miss on their travels, it could be a good opportunity to back home win in the match outright.

Championship Betting

Derby v Millwall Championship Preview, 20th February 7.45pm

The two had contrasting fortunes on the weekend in the FA Cup, Derby bowing out while the Lions pushed onto the quarterfinals. It is back to league action on the weekend with both of them in need of the points for very different reasons. Read our Derby v Millwall betting tips for more.

Derby v Millwall Betting Odds*

West Brom 11/10
QPR 11/5
Draw 13/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 17th, 2019 at 6:25 p.m.)


Derby News and Form

The Rams are just searching for a bit more winning consistency in the league. The last time that they managed to win back to back games was at the start of December. They are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven league fixtures now but are unable to put a winning streak together. Last time out in the league they were held to a 1-1 draw at bottom side Ipswich. Derby are currently on a great undefeated run of six at home in the league, winning their last two there. Overall the Rams are W8 D5 L2 at home this season.

Derby have averaged 1.5 goals per home game this season, taking a clean sheet in a third of their fixtures. They are currently on a four-match scoring streak at Pride Park, having scored exactly two in both of their last two there. This is a game in hand which they have over the current top four. A win in this one moves them up into fifth place, a draw up into sixth. Only three teams in the division currently have a better defensive record than Derby this season. Only four teams have better home records too.

Derby v Millwall Head to Head

Millwall earned a 2-1 home win over the Rams in August
The Lions have lost just one of their last six against the Rams (W2 D3)
Both teams have scored in two of the last six meetings
Three of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals

Millwall News and Form

Millwall do still have some relegation concerns. They will go into this game only the two points above the drop zone. They do have games in hand to cash in with potentially though. But they are still with the distraction of the FA Cup, a win over AFC Wimbledon pushing the Lions through the quarterfinals over the weekend. In the league, Millwall are currently winless in five (D3 L2). Their away form this season leaves a lot to be desired. Just once this season in the Championship have Millwall collected three points from a road game. That lone Championship away win this season was at bottom side Ipswich on January 1st.

Overall Millwall are W1 D4 L10 on their travels. It is worth noting that goals have been drying up for them as they have scored just one goal in their last five league games in total. Millwall have averaged less than a goal per game on their travels, while they have conceded at an average of 1.8 per away game. The Lions have just one away clean sheet this season, conceding in each of their last fourteen on the road. The Lions have scored 11 of their 14 away goals in this season in the second half of matches, but have a half time away record of W2 D5 L8.

Derby v Millwall Tips & Odds

Derby to win to nil at 12/5
Under 2.5 goals at 4/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 17th, 2019 at 6:25 p.m.)

Who will win – Derby v Millwall Predictions

Millwall have terrible away form this season, while the Rams have put together a good home campaign. The straight forward option of the home win looks a good proposition.

Derby News and Form

Derby collected a solid 1-0 away win at Wigan last weekend in the Championship, which was a great three points for them. It moved them onto back to back wins. The Rams are W5 D1 L2 in their last eight games home and away in the second tier. They have been a strong side at Pride Park with a record of W6 D2 L2 on the board so far. They have won three of their last four there as well (L1). They have come up with an average of over 1.5 goals per home game this season and 60% of their games at Pride Park have gone above the 2.5 goal line.

Each of their last four home games have gone above the mark so there is a trend ticking along there. The Rams have earned a clean sheet in 30% of their home fixtures this season. Four of their six home wins have been by a two-goal margin in this season’s Championship. In five of their ten home fixtures, Derby have been sitting level at the half time break. Derby are on a four-match scoring streak in the second tier but the one concern over them will be their defence. They are without a clean sheet in their last six at Pride Park. They jump up to third place with three points from this.

Derby v Nottingham Forest Head to Head

Derby have won their last three home games against Forest to nil

Derby are unbeaten in five league games against Forest (W3 D2)

Nottingham Forest News and Form

Forest suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Preston last weekend which halted some positive momentum they were on. Forest had gone seven matches undefeated in the Championship before that reverse. Out on the road in the second tier this season Nottingham Forest have produced a W3 D6 L1 record. Forest are unbeaten in their last seven games on their travels this season in the Championship so that’s some strong form. In their last away game in the league, they produced a thrilling 5-5 draw at Aston Villa.

Nottingham Forest have averaged just under two goals per game on their travels this season and they have only failed to score in 10% of their road games. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Forest have earned a clean sheet in 40% of their road games so they should be able to turn up and be a threat. A win draws them level on points with fifth-placed Derby if they can come up with three points in the game. Just twice this season have Forest been leading at half time in an away game and Forest have scored 68% of their away goals this season in the second half of games. They have scored each to their last six road games. Only Middlesbrough and Leeds have better defensive records than Forest currently

Middlesbrough missed on what appeared to be a good chance of three points in a home 0-0 draw with Rotherham in midweek. That followed a 2-1 win they took at Sheffield Wednesday last weekend. Their current form of Middlesbrough is W2 D3 L1 in their last six with the lone defeat in that sequence being at the Riverside against Notts Forest at the start of the month.

Boro have suffered only the one home defeat this season in the Championship, but have missed out on a win in each of their last three (D2 L1).

Boro have only shipped the seven goals all season in their fourteen league games, easily the best defence in the division. Only two goals they have conceded at home all season.

Derby were on a run of one win in six games in the Championship, but they have produced back to back wins over the last week. They took out Sheffield United last weekend before downing West Brom in midweek. That’s two of the current top four they have beaten. The Rams are undefeated in their last four league games and have lost just one of their last seven (W3 D3).

So there is a bit of momentum there and overall this season they are W3 D1 L3 on the road earning four points from their last two on the road. They don’t have a clean sheet in any of their last six though and a Middlesbrough -1-0 is the shortest-priced option at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 5:29 pm) in the correct score market.

Derby have not earned a clean sheet on their travels this season in the Championship. Jack Marriott has scored in each of Derby’s last two games in the league and he is at 11/4 in the anytime goalscorer market for the visitors* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 5:29 pm). If they could find a way to continue their winning streak they would jump above Boro by a point.

Who will win – Middlesbrough v Derby Predictions

We see the draw having the most appeal in the match outright for this one. Derby have hit a nice bit of form and will be confident of holding their own. Boro’s defence though has been immense this season, but they are lacking a scoring threat at the moment. Draw.

West Brom News and Form

The Baggies suffered a bit of a surprise defeat last weekend as they were beaten 1-0 at Wigan. They were undefeated in their seven games previous to that though and they still have home form going for them. They are on a five-match winning streak of league form at the Hawthorns and they have scored at least two goals in each of those wins. They have averaged 3.3 goals per game at home this term. Despite that great form they have only managed the one clean sheet at home so far this season and with that in mind a West Brom 2-1 correct score option is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm).

83% of West Brom’s home games this season have made it over 2.5 goals.  Therefore for West Brom v Derby betting tips, over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). Each of West Brom’s last three home wins have been by a margin of at least two goals. Striker Dwight Gayle has certainly been enjoying home games for the Baggies as he has netted in each of their last five league home games, bagging a total of seven goals in that run. Gayle is at 6/5 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). This will be the first home game this season for West Brom against a side currently in the top nine.

Derby News and Form

Derby weren’t showing a lot of winning form over their recent form, but they shook that off to bank a fantastic 2-1 home success over the dangerous Sheffield United on the weekend. That really should have been a big lift for them but their away form is still a bit questionable. Derby are only W1 D1 L3 in their last five road games in the Championship and they have scored just one goal in their last three. In total, they have only managed to net six times in their away games, but their defence, which has only conceded seven road goals, has kept them in matches.

Of the half dozen away goals that Derby have come up with so far, two-thirds of them have come up in the second half of matches. They are on the lookout for their first clean sheet away from Pride Park this season and none of Derby’s away games this season have been settled by a margin of more than one goal. West Brom to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 22nd, 2018 at 12:38 pm). They have yet to pay a visit to any side who are currently sat in the top nine in the division and so this will be a big test for them. They have posted an overall record of W2 D1 L3 this season on their travels. Both teams have scored in all but one of their last five games so back in the both teams to score option isn’t a bad proposition.

Who will win – West Brom v Derby Predictions

West Brom have the appeal to come away with the three points in the fixture here. They have some good home momentum behind them while Derby at the end of the day, had a good win on the weekend, but that is their only success in their last four. West Brom to win to nil.
