Saturday's Championship predictions including Middlesbrough vs. Bournemouth

Sports Mole provides score predictions for all of Saturday's Championship matches, including Middlesbrough vs. Brentford.


Nott'm Forest vs. Cardiff (Saturday, 12.30pm)

Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City will be aiming to get off the mark with their first points of the Championship season when they meet at the City Ground on Saturday.

Both sides lost their opening league fixtures of the campaign and were eliminated from the EFL Cup at the first hurdle, placing added importance on this weekend's fixture.

We say: Nottingham Forest 0-1 Cardiff City


Forest enter this match on a four game losing run - a rut that they quite simply have to bring an end to. Cardiff are also in need of a positive result and, on the basis of their recent visits to the City Ground, we are backing them to snatch three points here.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Blackburn vs. Wycombe (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Blackburn Rovers and Wycombe Wanderers head into their second Championship fixture of the season both looking to hit back from opening-weekend defeats.

Newcomers Wycombe got their campaign underway with a 1-0 defeat against Rotherham United, while Blackburn were on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline versus Bournemouth.

We say: Blackburn Rovers 2-1 Wycombe Wanderers


Their respective setbacks last weekend have put both teams under pressure to get at least a point on the board on Saturday. Although Wycombe may play with greater freedom on their first away trip in this division, we expect Blackburn to ultimately show more in the final third.

Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.

Brentford vs. Huddersfield (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Brentford head into the first ever league game at their new stadium - a Championship encounter with Huddersfield Town - looking to hit back from their surprise defeat at Birmingham City.

Meanwhile, the visitors are yet to score a goal in all competitions this season, putting Carlos Corberan under pressure to get a positive result on the board on Saturday afternoon.

We say: Brentford 2-0 Huddersfield Town


Although complacency is a factor within the Bees squad, Frank will do all that he can to ensure that it does not become a factor at the weekend. Given the manner of their victory at Southampton, everything points to the home side coming through in comfortable fashion.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Luton vs. Derby (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Luton Town play host to Derby County on Saturday afternoon looking to build on an outstanding start to the season in the Championship and EFL Cup.

However, the same cannot be said of the Rams, who are yet to register a win from open play in their three matches ahead of their trip to Kenilworth Road.

We say: Luton Town 2-1 Derby County


Jones will be desperate for his side to maintain the momentum which has been generated in recent weeks, and we expect them to do just that. Derby are struggling to get anything going right row, with a game against opponents who will relish their underdogs tag coming at completely the wrong time.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Middlesbrough vs. Bournemouth (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Bournemouth will be looking to make it back-to-back wins at the start of their 2020-21 Championship campaign when they travel to Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon.

The Cherries, who will be looking for an immediate return to the Premier League, beat Blackburn Rovers 3-2 in their season opener last weekend, while Boro suffered a 1-0 defeat at Watford on Friday night.

We say: Middlesbrough 1-2 Bournemouth


Boro are certainly capable of making it a tough afternoon for Bournemouth, who will concede plenty of goals this season. The Cherries have a lot of quality going forward, though, and we fancy the visitors to put another three points on the board courtesy of a narrow success at the Riverside Stadium.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Norwich City will be looking to make it back-to-back wins at the start of their 2020-21 Championship campaign when they host Preston North End on Saturday afternoon.

The Canaries opened their league season with a 1-0 victory at Huddersfield Town last weekend, while Preston started with a disappointing 1-0 home defeat to Swansea City.

We say: Norwich City 2-0 Preston North End


Norwich are going to take some stopping this season if they manage to keep the majority of their star players. The Canaries got off to a winning start last weekend, and we expect Farke's side to put another three points on the board on Saturday afternoon.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Reading vs. Barnsley (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Reading go up against Barnsley on Saturday afternoon after beginning their Championship campaign with a 2-0 victory at Derby County.

Despite their progress in the EFL Cup, the Tykes head to the Madejski Stadium on the back of a 1-0 defeat at Luton Town last weekend.

We say: Reading 1-2 Barnsley


Although Reading are the marginal favourites to prevail at the weekend, we cannot ignore Barnsley's form in the EFL Cup. Struber's side enjoy being the underdogs, and the visitors could live up that billing once again on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting over 1.5 goals.

Rotherham vs. Millwall (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Rotherham United have the opportunity to make it two wins from two to kick off their Championship return when they host Millwall at the New York Stadium on Saturday.

The Millers secured a late 1-0 win away at Wycombe Wanderers in their opening fixture, while Millwall played out a goalless draw at home to Stoke City last time out.

We say: Rotherham United 2-1 Millwall


Rotherham are unbeaten in their last four league meetings with Millwall, winning three of those. The Millers have also lost just one of their last nine home matches and have had a full week's rest, so we are going with a narrow home win in this one.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Two teams that enjoyed winning starts to the Championship season face off at Hillsborough on Saturday as Sheffield Wednesday play host to Watford.

Wednesday beat Cardiff City 2-0 in their opening fixture to move up to minus nine points in the table, while Watford edged out Middlesbrough 1-0.

We say: Sheffield Wednesday 1-2 Watford


Wednesday have won three out of three in all competitions so far this season without conceding, while Watford also boast a 100% record from their two matches to date.The Owls had one of the division's worst home records last season, winning just one of their last 12 league games at Hillsborough, and for that reason we are tipping the visitors to come out on top on Saturday.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.

Swansea vs. Birmingham (Saturday, 3.00pm)

Swansea City and Birmingham City go head to head at the Liberty Stadium having both started their Championship campaigns with three points.

After the Blues had recorded an impressive 1-0 victory over Brentford, Swansea prevailed by the same scoreline at Preston North End.

We say: Swansea City 2-1 Birmingham City


While we do not expect many goals in this game, it is difficult to predict anything other than a Swansea win. Even though Blues are in good hands with Karanka at the helm, the home side are more settled in how they want to play, something which could prove decisive this weekend.

Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or draw.
