<div><h2 align="center"><strong>Stoke vs Sheffield Wednesday</strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>Thursday, December 26<sup>th</sup> at The Bet365 Stadium</strong><br /><strong>EFL Championship Betting Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Sheffield Wednesday wins @ 2.80 [+180] with Bet365</a></strong></p><p><strong>Descending even further</strong></p><p>Despite suffering constant underachieving performances, Stoke City opened up as the favourites ahead of their Boxing Day clash with Sheffield Wednesday. The line has moved closer, but at these high odds, it’s hard to ignore Wednesday in this position.</p><p>Michael O’Neil’s arrival seemed to bring a glimmer of hope for Stoke fans, but after similar results continue to roll in; it might be too little, too late for any chance of Stoke reaching the playoffs.</p><p><strong>Sheffield shift their away form</strong></p><p>Sheffield Wednesday has been a solid squad since the beginning of the season, but their away-form seemed to lack the same efforts shown on home turf. That has soon turned around for Garry Monk and this Wednesday team.</p><p>When it comes to facing teams in the bottom half of the league, Wednesday do a great job of taking the full 3 points and with current form continuing to rise; they should be more than confident against a Stoke side that is battling relegation. On top of that, history favours Wednesday too. Stoke haven’t managed to beat Wednesday in their previous 5 league games whilst Wednesday have won every Boxing Day clash the past five years.</p><p><strong>Form, Mentality, Numbers &amp; Trends </strong></p><ul> <li> <p>Sheffield Wednesday are 21 points adrift of Stoke City</p> </li> <li> <p>Stoke have won just 5 from 23 games</p> </li> <li> <p>Sheffield Wednesday are 3<sup>rd</sup> in the Championship table</p> </li></ul><p>Almost every aspect of sports handicapping will be favouring Wednesday this Thursday afternoon. With trends, form and statistics all favouring Wednesday,</p><p>The first English Football League Championship betting pick for Boxing day will be Sheffield Wednesday to take the victory against a weak Stoke side.</p><p><strong>EFL Championship Prediction/Tip: <u><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Sheffield Wednesday wins @ 2.80 [+180] with Bet365</a></u></strong></p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&amp;a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><h2 align="center"><strong>Luton vs Fulham</strong></h2><p align="center"><strong>Thursday, December 26<sup>th</sup> at Kenilworth Road</strong><br /><strong>EFL Championship Betting Tip: <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Fulham win &amp; over 1.5 goals @ 2.05 [+105] with Coral</a></strong></p><p align="center"><img alt src="https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/_2GJDn7wITYCOld78KkUo9yv7NI=/0x0:2675x1783/1200x800/filters:focal(1124x678:1552x1106)/cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/65952827/1189835464.jpg.0.jpg" style="width:700px;height:467px" /></p><p><strong>Fine form for Fulham resumes </strong></p><p>A sticky patch in the winter left Fulham fans pondering at this seasons success, but with the likes of Mitrovic scoring goals for fun, Fulham has had no problem finding momentum once again and are now in 4<sup>th</sup> place just 1 point shy from 3<sup>rd</sup> position. Coming off a win over 2<sup>nd</sup> place Leeds this weekend has proven Fulham’s star power.</p><p><strong>Top versus bottom </strong></p><p>Thursday's clash won’t hold as much value to Luton as it will to Stoke. Things haven’t looked promising for Luton since their Championship promotion whilst Fulham are slowly rising in the ranks towards those precious automatic promotion positions in the league.</p><p>Luton has suffered more defeats this season than any other side; they have one of the worst home records losing 9 of their previous 11 games.</p><p><strong>Mitrovic takes on a poor defence</strong></p><ul> <li> <p>Mitrovic has 17 goals this term</p> </li> <li> <p>Luton haven’t beaten a team inside the top 7 this season</p> </li> <li> <p>Fulham just defeated second-place Leeds United</p> </li></ul><p>A sure gift this Christmas must be a side battling relegation facing a top 5 side in the league. So for our final EFL betting prediction, we’re taking Fulham to take another victory and Luton continues their abysmal efforts.</p><p><em><strong><u>EFL Championship Betting Tip: </u></strong></em><strong><u><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Football Betting Odds">Fulham win &amp; over 1.5 goals @ 2.05 [+105] with Coral</a></u></strong></p><h2> </h2><h2><strong>Extra Football bets, tips &amp; predictions</strong></h2><p> </p><p><b><u>EFL Championship predictions 26.12.19</u></b></p><p><b><i>West Brom win &amp; over 1.5 goals @ 2.20 [+120] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow">Coral</a></i></b></p><p><b><i>Cardiff vs Millwall - draw @1 [-110] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow">Coral</a></i></b></p><p><b><i>Leeds United win &amp; under 3.5 goals vs Preston @ 2.30 [+130] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow">Coral</a></i></b></p><p> </p><p><b><u>EFL League 1 predictions - 26.12.19</u></b></p><p><b><i>Bristol wins &amp; over 1.5 goals vs Wimbledon @ 2.15 [+115] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow">Coral</a> </i></b></p><p><b><i>Burton wins &amp; under 3.5 goals vs @ 2.35 [+135] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow">Coral</a> </i></b></p><p><b><i>Oxford wins &amp; under 3.5 goals vs Lincoln @ 2.38 [+138] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betway</a> </i></b></p><p> </p><p><b><u>EPL predictions - 26.12.19</u></b></p><p><b><i>Tottenham win &amp; over 2.5 goals vs Brighton @ 2.15 [+115] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Betway</a></i></b></p><p><b><i>Aston Villa win vs Norwich @ 2.14 [+114] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Unibet</a></i></b></p><p><b><i>Tottenham wins/Chelsea wins Accumulator @ 2.20 [+120] with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Unibet</a></i></b></p></div>
