The most interesting pick of those in the Championship this weekend must be Preston to beat Newcastle as only a few days ago in the EFL cup Newcastle thrashed Preston 6-0 at St James’ Park, where they also hit the woodwork three times.
So why should Preston turn it around?
Firstly, I don’t take much notice of Cup games. Secondly, I have Preston ranked 7th in the Championship at home but 21st away from home.
Preston have won their last four home games in the league, scoring nine goals and conceding just one. Of course, it’s highly likely that Newcastle win again. They are the best team in the division and could end up winning it in a canter but should Preston be 4/1+ at home to anyone? No.
