Those who lost their opening weekend fixture have a chance to put things right this midweek, while the clubs that picked up all three points are looking to confirm their good start to the season.
Pre-season Championship favourites Leicester kicked off with a comfortable 2-0 win over Peterborough and can make it back-to-back wins when they take on newly promoted Charlton this Tuesday. The Foxes are quoted at odds of 6/4 with Stan James to make it a maximum six points from their opening two games.
It wasn’t such a good start for fellow pre-season favourites Bolton, who lost 2-0 away to Burnley on what was a miserable return to Turf Moor for Wanderers manager Owen Coyle. They at least have an opportunity to get back on track within a few days as they host Derby at the Reebok Stadium this midweek. BetVictor offer odds of 8/11 that the home side take the three points, with Derby at odds of 4/1 and the draw 27/10.
Blackpool currently top the embryonic Championship league table after they beat Millwall 2-0 in their opening game. Ian Holloway’s men are at home to Leeds, who also kicked off with a win, and Stan James make The Seasiders 11/8 favourites to be the team that maintains their 100% record. Leeds are a 2/1 shot and the draw is 9/4.
Elsewhere in the Championship this midweek Brighton are made favourites to beat Cardiff, Middlesbrough are fancied to take three point from Burnley, Wolves are odds-on prices to beat Barnsley and Watford are strong favourites to defeat Ipswich.
