Following a full round of midweek action in the Championship, three sides many expect to be there or thereabouts come the end of the season in the shape of Brighton and Hove Albion, Cardiff City and Wolverhampton Wanderers all returned home happy after successfully recording victories on their travels and can do so again this weekend when they go to Millwall, Crystal Palace and Peterborough United respectively.
The trio look a good bet once again this weekend to end the week with another victory, and new customers who sign up to bwin and back the treble with their free £20 would see a return of £245.96 should the bet come to fruition.
Brighton to beat Millwall @ 8/5
Brighton continued their fine start to the new season with their 4th win in a row on Tuesday evening as they saw off Watford 1-0 at Vicarage Road, courtesy of a Craig Mackail-Smith penalty that sees the side lie third in the table.

That took the Scotland international’s tally for the season to six, just three less than his entire haul in the league last term, and if the forward can maintain this form, the Seagulls will be knocking on the door of at least a play-off place come May.
The result in midweek also saw Gus Poyet’s side record their third clean sheet of the campaign, and the south coast club look to have a good balance in both defence and attack as they look to improve on their 10th place finish last season.
Millwall head into the game on the back of successive defeats after a 2-0 victory for Cardiff at the New Den in the week followed a 4-1 thrashing away at Hull last weekend to leave the Lions sitting just one place above the bottom three.
Cardiff to beat Crystal Palace @ 6/5
Victory in midweek at Millwall saw Malky Mackay’s Cardiff side pick up maximum points from their last three games to make it four wins in their opening six league matches that sees the side occupy 5th place, just one point behind leaders Blackburn.
Midfielder Peter Whittingham has become a key figure for the side in recent years due to his goalscoring exploits from the middle of the park, and his strike in midweek made it five goals in just three games for the former Aston Villa man.
Crystal Palace will know all about the talents of Whittingham, who managed to get himself on the scoresheet in both league matches between the clubs last season as the Welsh side emerged victors on each occasion, including a 2-1 win at Selhurst Park in April.
The Eagles are themselves on a decent run of form, undefeated in three with two wins and a draw at home to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday, but Cardiff should have enough quality to repeat the feat of last season and leave London with all three points.
Wolves to beat Peterborough @ 23/20
Just six games into the league season and Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough side look to be in big trouble as they remain the only team in the entire football league yet to pick up a point after they fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Bristol City on Tuesday.
It is Posh’s worst ever start to a league season, and is in large part due to their inability to shut teams out, as they are yet to record a clean sheet having already conceded 14 goals, more than any other side in the Championship.
Wolves head in the game on the back of successive victories after they saw off Ipswich 2-0 on the road in midweek to follow up a 2-1 home victory against Leicester last weekend to lift the side up to 7th in the table.
The Old Gold began the season in an indifferent way with just one win in four games, but maximum points from their last two matches will do their confidence the world of good and they have been presented with a great opportunity to make it three wins on the bounce.
