In order to win promotion to the Premier League, picking up wins on the road is almost as important as winning your home games. Three potential candidates for promotion to the top flight this term in Leeds United, Leicester City and Blackburn Rovers are well aware of this and in a full midweek Championship fixture list, the trio look to offer the best value to secure maximum points away from home at Bolton Wanderers, Huddersfield Town and Nottingham Forest respectively.
While each bet is perhaps best considered individually, those feeling lucky and backing the treble with their free £20 bet received after registering with bwin.com would see a return of £461.40 should all three triumph.
Leeds United to beat Bolton Wanderers @ 13/5
Leeds will be aiming for their fourth straight win in all competitions when they travel to Bolton this evening as they look to try to keep pace with the sides at the top of the table.
|Bayern Munich win||£34.00||(7/10)|
The Whites emerged 3-2 victors away at Bristol City on Saturday to lift them to ninth in the table, on the back of an impressive 2-1 success over a strong Everton side in the Capital One Cup last Tuesday evening.
Argentinean forward Luciano Becchio has been in fine form for the United this season, contributing six league goals already, and if he can keep firing on all cylinders, Leeds have every chance of a play-off spot at least.
Bolton certainly haven’t made the fast start to the season many would have expected following their relegation from the Premier League as they currently find themselves sitting just four places above the bottom three after eight games.
The Trotters have been on the end of four defeats already this campaign, the last a 1-0 loss to Crystal Palace at home on Saturday afternoon, and given the fact United will travel to the Reebok in high spirits, an away victory looks on the cards.
Leicester City to beat Huddersfield Town @ 5/4
After a slow start to the season that saw them lose three of their opening five league fixtures, Leicester now find themselves bidding for their fourth successive Championship victory this evening when they travel to the John Smith’s Stadium.
The Foxes head into the game on the back of a 2-1 success away at Middlesbrough on Saturday that ended Boro’s 100% record at the Riverside, as they came from a goal down to snatch a late winner with just minutes left on the clock.
Nigel Pearson’s side certainly know where the net is having notched seven goals in their last three games, with no side able to shut them out in the league this term, and strike duo Dave Nugent and Jamie Vardy are showing early signs of developing a fruitful partnership.
The Terriers’ run of three wins on the bounce was brought to an end at home to Watford at the weekend as they went down 3-2 to the Hornets, who entered the game having picked up just one point from their last 12 available.
Of course, it won’t be an easy task for Pearson and his players given the start Huddersfield have made to the season since winning promotion from League One, but they should have just enough quality to record their fourth victory in a row against the Yorkshire side.
Blackburn Rovers to beat Nottingham Forest @ 37/20
It was only a matter of time before Steve Kean’s tenure as Blackburn manager came to an end and that was the case on Friday evening after the Scot handed in his resignation in what has been a dark period for the club on and off the field.
The news of his departure was followed by a tricky trip to Charlton on Saturday, but they emerged with a share of the spoils in a 1-1 draw that sees the club occupy fourth spot, one point behind leaders Brighton.
With 16 goals scored already this term, only Bristol City have managed to find the net on more occasions than the Lancashire club, who have tasted defeat in just one of their opening eight league matches as they travel to a Nottingham Forest side on a bad run of form.
With Kean no longer at the club, the negativity among the fans will surely now be lifted and in strike duo Nuno Gomes and Jordan Rhodes, they possess a forward line that has the goals in them to really stake a claim for the top two this season.
Forest are without a win in their last four matches and have picked up just one victory in seven as they face the possibility of three successive defeats following a feisty 1-0 home reverse to local rivals Derby on Sunday.
The Reds will be without striker Dexter Blackstock after he was dismissed just moments after the half-time whistle against the Rams and the home fans are likely to return home unhappy once again on Wednesday evening after yet another defeat.
