The Daily Acca: Wolves to continue their march to the title

Wolves are closing in on the Premier League
Wolves are closing in on the Premier League

The Championship has taken Paul Robinson's eye this afternoon as he has picked out a treble that includes some tasty top of the table clashes. Here are his selections:

- Back Under 2.5 Goals in Fulham v Aston Villa @ 10/11
- Back Cardiff @ 7/5
- Back Wolves @ 23/20

The Acca pays approximately 9/1

Bet 1: Back Under 2.5 Goals in Fulham v Aston Villa @ 10/11 - KO 15:00 GMT

The two form teams of the Championship clash at Craven Cottage this afternoon and although the hosts have been banging in the goals of late, I'm confident that the Villa defence will make sure that this match sees under 2.5 backers collect.

Steve Bruce's men kept another clean sheet against Birmingham last weekend and while that was at Villa Park, they haven't been conceding goals on the road either. Their last three outings away from home have all ended 1-0 to them, and that includes visits to the Riverside and Bramall Lane.

Fulham have flown up the table following a poor start and even automatic promotion isn't beyond them - especially if they can win today. They have won six on the bounce here - conceding just two goals in the process - but whatever the result, I think it will be a low-scoring affair.

Bet 2: Back Cardiff @ 7/5 - KO 15:00 GMT

The Bluebirds have consolidated following a disappointing run of results that saw them drop back into the play-off positions. They are now unbeaten in five in the league - three wins and two draws - and on this ground it's two victories to nil from their two latest outings.

The visitors this afternoon are Middlesbrough and the 2-1 win for Tony Pulis' men last Saturday against Reading ended a run of no win in three in all competitions.

The Boro are only four points off the top six, so they are still well within a shout of making the play-offs, but they are still proving frustratingly inconsistent.

A 1-0 defeat at Carrow Road in their last away match ended a run of three straight victories on their travels, but on the whole, I think that Neil Warnock's side will prove too strong here.

Bet 3: Back Wolves @ 23/20 - KO 15:00 GMT

The only thing that is a certainty in the Championship this season is that Wolves are going to be promoted. All of the relegation places are still up for grabs, second place could go to one of about five teams, and any of the top half could make the play-offs.

Nuno Espírito Santo's side have been relentless this year and they sit 12 points clear at the top, having won 22 of their 31 fixtures to date. They don't have the easiest game this afternoon at Preston, but they have already won 10 of their 15 away from home this season.

The hosts were held last time out at Brentford and it's just one win in four on this ground. They have now lost three of their last nine here and I have to believe that they will be outclassed by the best team in the division by a mile.
