The English Football Championship is the second-highest division of the English Football League (EFL). It is considered to be a fan-favorite thanks to its entertainment value - even in the case of goalless draws!
Here are our tips and best bets!
Barnsley vs West Brom
Barnsley is now unbeaten in three Championship matches with their last-minute winner away at Millwall on Saturday coming as a huge shock against a side in excellent form. They will come into this match riding high on confidence but while they can score here, West Brom will be expecting the win.
Barnsley form: 23 matches – 4 wins – 7 draws – 12 losses – 19 points.
West Brom form: 23 matches – 14 wins – 8 draws – 1 loss – 50 points.

Wigan vs Derby
Two of the league's worst away sides meet at the DW Stadium with both managers under big pressure to turn things around.
Derby's capitulation at Reading was not helped by a red card to Malone in the early stages but they have lost their last six on the road and this looks like a lifeline for Wigan.
Wigan form: 23 matches – 4 wins – 7 draws – 12 losses – 19 points.
Derby form: 23 matches – 6 wins – 8 draws – 9 losses – 26 points.

Luton vs Fulham
Luton Town is combative at home and can most often be counted on to score at Kenilworth Road but Fulham's defeat of Leeds last time out suggests the London side are in the mood for a good Christmas spell.
This match between two offensive teams looks like it could end up high-scoring, too.
Luton form: 23 matches – 6 wins – 2 draws – 15 losses – 20 points.
Fulham form: 23 matches – 11 wins – 5 draws – 7 losses – 38 points.

Middlesbrough vs Huddersfield
Middlesbrough won a vital clash at the bottom of the table with Stoke last Friday and that makes it three league wins in a row at home. Their next guests are a Huddersfield side who also won 2-1 at home last time out and both teams look capable of scoring here in a result that could go either way.
Middlesbrough form: 23 matches – 5 wins – 9 draws – 9 losses – 24 points.
Huddersfield form: 23 matches – 6 wins – 7 draws – 10 losses – 25 points.

Brentford vs Swansea
Brentford has won their last four league matches at home and their 1-1 draw away to an in-form West Brom last time out could have easily been a win, which shows the form they are in too.
Swansea won this fixture last year in a game where both teams scored, but the Bees can reverse that here.
Brentford form: 23 matches – 11 wins – 4 draws – 8 losses – 37 points.
Swansea form: 23 matches – 10 wins – 7 draws – 6 losses – 37 points.
BTTS: yes priced at 1.71 💰
Leeds United vs Preston North End
The Leeds fans will be expecting a response following the defeat at Fulham, and we fancy the Whites to pick up all three points on their return to Elland Road courtesy of a narrow success.
Leeds form: 23 matches – 14 wins – 5 draws – 4 losses – 47 points.
Preston form: 23 matches – 11 wins – 5 draws – 7 losses – 38 points.
