Middlesbrough vs Birmingham match preview

Birmingham have lost 5 of their last 6, conceding 14 goals and scoring just 3. Middlesbrough have won 4 of their last 5, scoring 12 conceding 4. It looks likely that Middlesbrough will have more corners than Birmingham, they have had 28 corners in their last 5 games, whilst Birmingham have had 17 corners in their last 5. Middlesbrough have had at least 1 booking in their last 9 games, and Birmingham’s opponents have had at least 1 booking in 20/23 games this season, and all of their last 7. So Middlesbrough would be the form selection to win the game, though backing them to have more corners is also a strong looking bet. Also the stats suggest it would be no surprise to see a couple of cards minimum in this.

Blackburn vs Stoke match preview

Two out of forms team, Blackburn have won 2 of their last 8 and Stoke have won 1 of their last 7. Stoke games have seen very few goals recently as well. in their last 6 games they have scored just 2 goals, and conceded just 2 goals as well. Stoke have had at least 1 booking in 22/23 games and 2 or more cards in 14/23. Blackburn’s opponents have had at least 1 card in 20/23 games, and 2 or more cards in 11/23 games. So with the results being tough to call and the stats saying this wont be a high scoring game, it looks like booking points in the safest route if you are having a bet.

Bournemouth vs Luton match preview

Bournemouth have only won 4 of their last 10 league games, Luton have lost 3 of their last 5. Bournemouth have kept 6 clean sheets in their last 8 games, and Luton have failed to score in 3 of their last 5. With Bournemouth being somewhat out of form and Luton struggling to score, goals and the result could prove risky to call. The stats point to a strong possibility that both teams will have 3 or more corners and see at least 1 card each.

Bristol City vs Preston match preview

Preston have only conceded 1 goal in their last 4 games, Bristol City have only scored 4 goals in their last 7 games, and they have failed to score in 4 of those games. This is a tough game to predict and every potential bet has an element of doubt.

Games with 30+ match booking points – 15/23 games

Cardiff vs Norwich match preview

Norwich have won 6 of their last 8 and Cardiff have lost 4 of their last 5. Norwich would have to be form favourites to get the win. It looks likely that there will be a couple of goals at least though the stats don’t point to an absolute goal fest. The standout bet here is 3 or more corners each team and both teams to get a minimum of 1 card each which has strong stats to back it up.

Derby vs Rotherham match preview

Rotherham have lost 5 of their last 6, whilst derby have found some consistency lately and have only lost 2 of their last 9. Derby have improved lately and fresh off the news that Wayne Rooney has been given the permanent managers job, it would be no surprise to see them get the win, in a game they have undoubtedly targeted as a good opportunity for 3 points vs an out of form Rochdale side. Rotherham have had at least 1 card in all 20/20 games they have played this season, and have had 2 or more cards in their last 8 games. So booking points looks like the safest bet, if we had to pick a team it would be derby, though with 2 low scoring teams both hanging around the bottom of the table it is a risky game for bets.

Nottingham Forest vs Millwall match preview

Millwall have won just 1 of their last 13 games, though have scored in their last 4. Nottingham Forest are unbeaten in their last 5. This is a risky game with all potential bets carrying some doubt. This is not a game where we would recommend a bet.

QPR vs Wycombe match preview

Wycombe have won just 1 of their last 13 games, though they have scored in 7 of their last 8 games. QPR have won just 1 of their last 10. It looks likely that both teams will get at least 3 corners and see at least 1 card each. Though the result and number of goals is difficult to call. We would not be surprised to see this finish 0-0 or 1-1 in a low scoring, low quality draw.

Watford vs Huddersfield match preview

Both teams have lost 2 of their last 3 games. Goals look a very risky bet, though it looks likely both teams will see at least 1 booking each. The standout bet here is Watford to have the most corners. Huddersfield have not had more than 5 corners in any of their last 16 games, whilst Watford have had 6 or more corners in 10 of their last 12 games.

Barnsley vs Swansea match preview

Swansea are unbeaten in their last 4 and have won 3 of those. Barnsley have gone 16 games without a draw, winning 10 and losing 6 in that time. It looks likely both teams will get at least 1 card each. Swansea average over 2 corners a game more than Barnsley so it looks likely their will get more corners.
