Coventry vs Barnsley: Barnsley to win and BTTS

Unlikely promotion hopefuls Barnsley continue their push for the Premier League with a visit to Coventry City’s alternative home of St. Andrew’s on Sunday, with the Sky Blues in dire need of a win themselves.

Mark Robins’ side will need an improvement on their recent run of three wins in 15 if they are to be certain of remaining in the second tier for next season, and having lost eight of those games means they have taken just 13 points from a possible 45. This will be a quick turnover for Coventry too, having been in action against a Rotherham side directly below them in the final relegation spot on Thursday. Their current buffer of six points having played three games more looks fragile.

On the other hand, Barnsley will have had all week to prepare and focus for this encounter, and they come into it on the back of six straight wins on the road. Their meteoric rise from mid-table obscurity to near-certs for the playoffs has seen them notch up 36 points in their last 15 games, no side has more in that time.

The form book points towards an away win here, and we tip Barnsley to do so with both teams scoring at 9/2.

BARNSLEY TO WIN AND BTTS @ 9/2

Reading vs Cardiff: Reading to win and BTTS

Friday’s early kick-off and weekend opener pits Reading against Cardiff City, as the visitors will see this as their final chance to keep any promotion challenge going, after a stuttering run of results in recent weeks.

Reading also have work to do if they are to make the playoffs, and anything but a win here is likely to be costly. They are unbeaten in their last four games at home though and have not lost to Cardiff at the Madejski Stadium in their last six head-to-heads.

Cardiff’s poor run has seen them pick up just one win in their last seven, and their last away trip saw them go down 5-0 astonishingly to relegation candidates Sheffield Wednesday.

The two sides met on four occasions in 2020, and on every occasion both teams scored, including in a 3-3 thriller in the FA Cup, we predict goals again, with a Reading win this time, priced at 4/1.

Norwich vs Bournemouth: Norwich to win and Over 2.5 goals

With just one more win needed to categorically confirm promotion once and for all, Norwich City welcome Bournemouth to Carrow Road on Saturday night, with the Cherries dreaming of promotion themselves.

A 7-0 hammering of Huddersfield Town last midweek saw the Canaries stretch their impressive home unbeaten run to 19 games (14 wins, 5 draws) and while a win here will seal promotion, they are also two wins from the Championship title, an achievement already accomplished by Daniel Farke two seasons ago, and they are just five points away from beating their points tally from that season.

If Bournemouth want to delay any Norwich celebrations, they will have to do something they have never done before, win at Carrow Road. We are potentially in store for some goals in this contest, too. Five of Bournemouth’s last six games have seen both teams score, and only Brentford have scored more than these two this season.

Our tip is for Norwich to clinch promotion with a win here with over 2.5 goals scored in the game, available at odds of 15/8.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Bristol City: Sheff Wed to win + Under 2.5 goals

Relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday plays host to the most out-of-form side in the Championship this weekend, with mid-table Bristol City their next opponents, as the chance of survival narrows.

It would be unfair to accuse the Bristol City side of a lack of effort, but languishing in mid-table, safe from relegation on 50 points in 14th, their record in the last five games reads two points and one goal, perhaps the old cliche of the players being on their holidays already rings true here.

Sheffield Wednesday meanwhile, are fighting for their lives, and the picture looks bleak now, but two wins in their last four games shows there is still a chance. They enjoy this fixture especially too, having won four and drawn the other of their previous five encounters at Hillsborough.

We are backing Sheffield Wednesday to win here, but they have hardly been prolific this season either as only three sides have scored fewer in the division, so we are tipping under 2.5 goals in this one too, at odds of 3/1 with Sky Bet.

Rotherham vs Birmingham: Birmingham win to nil

Two sides embroiled in an end-of-season scrap for safety meet at the New York Stadium, as Rotherham United play their third game in six days against Birmingham City.

Rotherham started the week having lost their previous five home games, and unsurprisingly, this means they have the worst home record in the league, with just 15 points collected from 18 games. They are not the most efficient of sides either, having scored just five goals in their last ten games, these games have also only witnessed BTTS on two occasions.

Birmingham are one of many sides in England who are enjoying better form on the road this season, having amassed more points in away games (24) than they have at home (21). Four of Birmingham’s previous six wins have been to nil, and they have kept three consecutive clean sheets, including one away to league top scorers Brentford.

Therefore, our tip is for Birmingham to beat Rotherham to nil this Sunday, priced at 7/2.
