The Npower Championship is Mad!

Where do I start? We are but three games into the 2011/12 season in the Npower Championship and already there have been more shock than anyone could have predicted, which indeed is a contradiction in terms. Honestly, who could possible have predicted newly promoted Southampton and Brighton would be joined by A Derby side who suddenly, after a bit of summer sun and a break have decided to return to the world of competitive football? All three hold enviable 100% records, 9 points and positive goal differences.

Leicester City, the pre season ante post favourites (joke from the start), have made a right mess of it already. two consecutive home defeats does not bode well for the side that has passed £10 million quid through the  fair hands of a certain Mr Sven Goran-Eriksson already. If they don’t buck their ideas up, i guess a fair few quid will pass right into the Swedes Swiss bank account as severance pay. KER-CHING again Mr G-E?!

Unfortunately for Doncaster Rovers and Coventry, they do have the most predictable positions in the division, occupying the final two places. I fancied this pair for relegation before a ball was kicked and they are not letting me down!

On a tipping front, the stats pulled off from last years games have actually stood up quite well so far. Hull City away from home offering value for instance, but apart for home wins for Brighton on the opening day when I had to rely on Will Buckley getting his late late double, completed in the 98th minute, and Cardiff to beat Bristol City last week, the 1×2 market has been barren hunting ground. Even looking further into the markets, again but for a couple of bets; Middlesbrough to be leading at half time against Portsmouth in their opening game and Boro again delivering last night in the goal fest at Barnsley when i predicted OVER 2.5 Goals, this particular betting cupboard is equally bare.
