Wednesday's English Championship Betting Tips - 18th Aug 2021

Published: 2021-08-18 By: The Guru


The season in England is fully underway now outside of the Premier League with teams already onto their third games.

This means some form is starting to develop and it is becoming easier to understand how the game will unfold - it also means more data for the algorithm to gather and use to predict which way the games are going to go. It means that we should start seeing more game from England in the BTTS Tips page in the coming days.

Tonight we have picked out two games that we think offer us some good betting opportunities at good value odds.

Hull vs Derby

Derby's off-field problems have been well highlighted this season but they have managed to grind out a couple of results in their three games so far this season - the problem they face is that they have been far from impressive in any game so far and look to be closing in on a defeat. 

They are also really struggling when it comes to playing away from home. They have lost their last five away (four of which finished 2-1 to the home team) and we think it is unlikely that they will turn their away form around tonight in a game that Hull will also be desperate to win.

Hull started the season with a bang, winning 4-1 in their opening league game - however this was followed by a defeat on penalties to Wigan in the cup and a 3-0 defeat in the league next time out... 

Despite this hiccup we expect Hull to be too strong for Derby tonight - it will likely still be a tight game on the scoreline with Hull winning by a single goal - our preferred correct score prediction for this one would be 2-1.

Here are our two favourite bets from Hull vs Derby tonight:

Birmingham vs Bournemouth

This should be an interesting encounter as both teams come into the game with an unbeaten record so far this season and we expect one of them to lose that record tonight.

Birmingham got something of a surprising win on the opening day of the season when they beat Sheffield United 1-0 away from home and have since followed that up with a win in the cup and a 0-0 draw with Stoke (a team that have started the season strongly). 

This suggests that Birmingham and no pushovers this season but their biggest issue is likely to be the lack of goals. They have a low xG and are tonight facing a team with an almost double xG - which could be a signal for a tough night ahead.

Bournemouth had a tricky opening game of the season against a West Brom side that were relegated from the Premier League last season but they managed to come away from that game with a 2-2 and followed that up with a 2-1 win against Nottingham Forest last time out.

Bournemouth are currently averaging two goals scored per game - but they have also conceeded three so far this season which might be a concern but the low xG of Birmingham could mean tonight is a chance for Bournemouth to record their first clean sheet of the season.

Our preferred correct score tip in this game is currently 0-2 with Bouremouth taking all three points. Here are our two top bets from tonight's game:
