Football: 5/1 Championship Double - Tuesday, February 15

With a small number of games in the Football League this week, we head to Cardiff and Sheffield on Tuesday night for a double across those two games that pays out 5/1 with 888 Sport.

  • Sheffield United win to nil (v Hull)
  • Coventry to beat Cardiff


Sheffield United to win to nil (v Hull)

After a poor start to life back in the Championship, which resulted in Paul Heckingbottom taking over the reins, Sheffield United could get into the playoffs with a big enough win tonight. Throw in the fact that United have games in hand over many around them and The Blades are genuine promotion contenders.

Hull City are the visitors on Tuesday night, a team that has seen new manager bounce, but unfortunately for the, the bounce has been bad, with three consecutive losses. Changing their boss always had the potential to rock the boat, and it certainly has done that.

Hull have scored just once in those three defeats, and have lost some of their attacking mojo recently.

Not only do we like the home side to take this, but we think they can be the third team in four games to keep Hull off the scoresheet, so it’s United to win to nil for us to kick off the double.

Coventry to beat Cardiff

Cardiff are the worst team I’ve seen recently in the Championship, and fully deserve to be near the bottom of the table. Fair play to them though, they’ve performed recent smash and grab wins against Nottingham Forest, Barnsley and Peterborough to aid their survival chances.

However, tonight’s game against a good footballing team in Coventry, may be a step too far. The Sky Blues are not quite as good as they were earlier in the season, but do come here on the back of a win at Reading and have won two of their last three away games, scoring seven goals in the process.

This game is all about style. Can Cardiff keep it scrappy, and grind something out, or can Coventry play football, be adventurous and get the goals they are more than capable of scoring.

The latter is where we think this will go, so it’s a Coventry win for us to round off the double.
