It’s the last game of the Championship season and we are expecting a few games to go against the odds, it’s a 23/1 longshot and we are hoping to end the season with a bang. We’ve been on and off this season developing our new model which should be ready to go from the start of next season! Get ready we are back baby!
Wigan have been in good form of late and have had a good home record all season. They’ve avoided relegation and will be looking to put in a performance in front of their home fans to celebrate survival. Their opponents have also survived but after heartbreak in the FA cup they will be happy for the season to be over, especially after such a promising year last time out. Wigan are rightly favourites and odds above evens are too good to pass on.
Brentford have continued to put in performances despite having very little to play for. Losing their manager mid-season stemmed the tide of progression they’ve had in recent seasons, but they play an attractive attacking brand of football, especially at home. Prestons play-offs hopes failed a few weeks ago and they’ve not really picked themselves up after the disappointment. The end of the season is in sight for the Lancashire club and we fully expect them to have 1 eye on the beach here.
Rotherham have been relegated after 3 consecutive defeats. They were always underdogs this campaign and the lack of quality eventually showed. Middlesbrough have picked themselves up after a terrible run of form and have an outside chance of stealing the final play-off place on the final day. They are playing opponents with nothing to play for and a difference class of footballer. They should have enough to get the job done here.
Derby are in the final play-off spot and are the favourites to hold onto that final place, but they are playing 4th in the table with a side who have been resting key players. Both sides are in decent form but the pressure is all on the home side here, knowing that a defeat will likely see them overtaken by Bristol City or Boro. Derby are the favourites at home after putting in some decent performances but the draw at Swansea will have dented confidence. West Brom won’t want a defeat against a play-off rival just before they enter the competition and with the pressure off we are backing them to take all 3 points at long odds.
