Ace Football presents detailed betting tips on the upcoming Championship games of the weekend.

As we prepare for another weekend of Championship football, our experts take a look at the bookmakers’ predictions for the upcoming matches.

Let’s check out three betting tips for Matchday 44 of the Championship.

Don’t expect goals when Forest host Swansea

Nottingham Forest are on a run of three consecutive victories, scoring six goals in the process. They are fighting a close battle with the fourth-placed Huddersfield, who have a lower goal difference.

This weekend they will take on Swansea, who have drawn all of their last four matches. The Swans have been highly inconsistent but have shown they can defend well against the league’s front-runners.

We expect Forest to have the upper hand against the Swan. However, Swansea’s defensive stats convince us they can repel most of the hosts’ attacks.

Back both sides to score when Reading take on West Brom

Reading suffered a disappointing 3-0 defeat against Hull City last week, failing to score for the first time in eight matches. On Saturday, they will meet West Brom at their home stadium.

We expect Reading to get back to scoring goals against their guests. West Brom drew 0-0 against Coventry last week, but that game was mostly decided by the goalkeepers.

On the other hand, Reading’s lack of clean sheet in their last six games convinces us that West Brom’s attacking line will also find enough chances to score. 

Goals likely when Coventry meet Hudersfield

Huddersfield will take on Coventry this weekend as they hope to continue their three-game winning streak. The Terriers will certainly push for a win against their 11th-placed opponents as they try to leapfrog Nottingham Forest from the third spot.

However, Huddersfield’s recent defensive performances convince us that Coventry might find enough chances to shock their opponents. 

The Terriers let Barnsley make 11 shots last week, with Coventry’s attacking line being far superior to that of the relegation-battling side. We expect to see an exciting game with both sides having several shots on target on Saturday.
