Championship betting, Ipswich - Hull City

Ipswich could be one of the hidden favourites for play-off. Decent squad from previous season has been additionally strengthened with three (for Championship) top signings. Michael Chopra guarantees goals, Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is still Arsenal player, while Lee Bowyer should be a rock in the midfield. And Paul Jewell as a man in charge. I like it. They started campaign with an impressive 3-0 victory at Bristol, after that got eliminated from Northampton in Carling but Pearson played a reserve squad.

Hull City started the season with home defeats vs. Blackpool and League Two side - Macclesfield Town, both without scoring. There’re already some unrest in the club and Nigel Pearson could become the first candidate to be fired manager in Championship. They had very good away record last season, but won at Portman Road just once (in 1990). Striker Dele Adebola and defender Liam Rosenior could both return.

Hull on their travels could be a tough nut to crack, but I fancy Ipswich to win this one and to confirm play-off ambitions.
Bet: Ipswich -0.5
Odd: 2.07 188bet
Stake: 6/10

Quite frankly I am struggling to keep my stakes low, since I feel very confident about some bets. The Saints were so impressive against Leeds and Leeds can’t be that bad. If you know what I mean. West Ham have an unreal squad for Championship, while Donny would be with all seven missing players (including Sharp and Hayter) still contenter for relegation. Reading probably won’t be the same team from previous season. Too much income in the club and no investments in the new players. Leicester should win it...
Maybe one more game from Championship, or I’ll pick something from League One.
