There’s no let-up at either end of the 2020/21 EFL Championship table after another blistering weekend of storylines in the most unpredictable league in world football.
Who will be writing the headlines in midweek?
We’re back with our latest round of Championship predictions…
EFL Championship Predictions | Midweek Games
Can anybody clip the Canaries’ wings in the race for the title?
On current form, only Swansea City look consistent enough to stop Norwich City claiming a second Championship title in three years.
Championship Promotion Betting
The Canaries are still leading the way in the Championship outright winner market after another commanding win on the road at the weekend at fragile Cardiff City.
Daniel Farke’s side could move a hefty 11 points clear of third-place Bournemouth if results all fall in their favour in midweek, with the leaders up against Bristol City at Carrow Road.
High-flying Swansea will be hoping their M4 corridor neighbours do them a favour in midweek. Defeat for Norwich combined with a win for Steve Cooper’s side at out-of-form Blackburn Rovers would see the Swans close the gap to one point on the current pacesetters.
Brentford are finally back in competitive action after almost a fortnight off. The Bees will be hoping to play instant catch-up against a Luton side that downed their promotion rivals Bournemouth last weekend. The Cherries will be looking to make amends for that result away at struggling Derby County.
Championship Relegation Betting
Talking of the Rams, it was hardly a dream start as a full-time manager for Wayne Rooney at the weekend.
His Derby side looked disjointed against fellow relegation rivals Rotherham Utd, as the visitors claimed a morale-boosting three points in their fight for safety with a late winner at Pride Park. The Millers will be looking to build on that momentum at home to Stoke City on Tuesday night.
Birmingham City boss Aitor Karanka relieved some of the pressure on his shoulders with a resilient 1-0 victory over former club Middlesbrough last week. Can his side follow up with a first home win in nine attempts against Preston on Wednesday?
Another manager finally getting a tune out of his team is Nottingham Forest boss Chris Hughton. The Tricky Trees are now unbeaten in seven in all competitions and go up against Boro on Wednesday.
