Hull City defied the form book on Saturday with a 1-1 draw at home to Middlesbrough which ended a run of five defeats out of six at the KCOM Stadium, and denied Boro top spot in the Championship.
Middlesbrough’s loss was Leeds’ gain, but West Bromwich Albion knocked them off the Championship perch after Marcelo Bielsa’s dropped points in their 1-1 draw at Sheffield Wednesday on Friday night. They’ll be keen to regain top spot, and at 11/10 with Paddy Power I fancy them to claim a much-needed three points.
It’s just one win in five for Leeds, which is probably the reason why their odds have squeezed to just above even-money, but their goal threats all over the pitch mean they can’t be ignored at that price. Mateusz Klich has provided four goals for his side from a deep midfield position, and his goals against Stoke, Derby and Wednesday all came from outside the box. With that in mind, it may well be worthwhile sticking a few quid on Klich To Score And Leeds To Win 1-0, 2-0 Or 2-1 at a lovely 9/1 with William Hill.
Despite Hull not having the greatest home record this season, they have scored in four of their five games at the KCOM Stadium. Chris Martin is yet to score for the Tigers during his loan spell from Derby County, but the Scotland international has a great eye for goal at this level, and won’t be too far from the score sheet here. Martin is 2/1 with Ladbrokes to score anytime.
Leeds’ away scoring record is even more impressive, however. The Yorkshiremen have found the net in all five of their Championship games on the road so far, netting an impressive 11 goals in the process. Taking both teams’ recent scoring form into consideration, both teams scoring looks a certainty at 8/11 with Betfair, but if you’re after a bit more value then plump for an ambitious over 3.5 goals flutter at 9/4 with William Hill.
This is one of the many televised games in the Championship on Tuesday night, so if you want a same-game multi to keep yourself occupied, stick a tenner on the Leeds win, over 2.5 goals, and an Alioski goal anytime for the away side. The treble returns £60.
Championship Treble: £10 on Leeds (to beat Hull), Middlesbrough (Ipswich) and Wigan (Swansea) returns £81 with Paddy Power.
