It’s that time of the week again. Football is well and truly back and in full swing. Patterns are starting to develop as teams settle. Our expert tipster, Tipster Wizard has provided us with his bet of the weekend once again.
Bet of the Weekend – The Breakdown
This Saturday we are heading to the English Championship where we are backing a side who are playing beautiful football right now, Fulham.
The Cottagers are one of the teams I expected to be right up there at the end of the season and after suffering an opening day defeat against Barnsley, they’ve won their next 3 league games – scoring 8 goals and conceding just 1. They currently sit 3rd in the table with 9 points.
Fulham’s 84.5% possession and 934 passes versus Millwall on Wednesday is the highest recorded in the division since 2013-14. These are frightening stats.
With Mitrovic and Ivan Cavaleiro both in good goalscoring form, this team is always going to score with the number of chances they are creating and no side will be keen on facing Fulham at the moment.
Fulham’s opponents this weekend are Nottingham Forest. The East Midlands side lost their opening game of the season to West Brom but have since managed some decent results, including a huge point away from home at Leeds.
They also beat Birmingham City 3-0 at home but then drew to Charlton in a game they deserved to lose on the balance of play. They would consider themselves very lucky to have come away with a point against Charlton on Wednesday and I am not expecting them to get anything out of the game when they face Fulham.
This is a perfect time to back the hosts to come away with all 3 points and that is exactly what we are going to do.
