Midweek Championship Accumulator: Bank on 5/4 Birmingham for some midweek love

Another busy week in the Championship with six matches on both Tuesday and Wednesday and we have picked out a four-game acca to ponder, including a fancy for Birmingham to beat struggling Cardiff at home.

The Blues will be spending Valentines night in the company of Cardiff City at St Andrew's and it's the in-form home side that should be feeling the love. 

This four-strong accumulator works out at odds just shy of 36/1.

Midweek Championship accumulator:

Birmingham to beat Cardiff @ 5/4

Millwall to beat Coventry @ 19/10

Burnley to beat Watford @ 4/6

Bristol City vs Wigan Draw @ 12/5

OddsBirmingham 5/4, Draw 11/5, Cardiff 12/5

Birmingham appear decent value to kick off our acca with a home win at Full Time odds of 5/4 considering John Eustace's side have won their last two matches and deservedly saw off an in-form West Brom at home on Friday night.

Furthermore, Cardiff are in a dismal run of form, losing their last four in the Championship during a spell where they have managed to score just one goal.

Blues have been unpredictable over the course of the campaign but they will be hoping to get into playoff contention during the remainder of the season and can claim another important three points on Tuesday.

Millwall can edge out Sky Blues

OddsCoventry 31/20, Draw 11/5, Millwall 19/10

This looks like being a tight clash at the Coventry Building Society Arena but it's one the Lions can edge as they aim to keep up their hopes of landing a playoff place this term.

Millwall currently sit fifth but can barely afford a slip-up with Watford just beneath them due to a worse goal difference, while both Sunderland and Blackburn are only a point behind with West Brom another place back, just two points adrift.

Gary Rowett's side beat QPR away at the weekend and have now won their last two on the road in the second tier so they can take plenty of confidence with them for this trip to the West Midlands.

It will not be easy against a Sky Blues team that have playoff aspirations too as they're 14th, seven points off sixth, but the visitors can prevail at tasty odds of 19/10.

OddsBurnley 4/6, Draw 14/5, Watford 17/4

Our third selection for the Championship midweek acca is also on Tuesday and comes from the clash between runaway leaders Burnley and playoff hopefuls Watford at Turf Moor.

The Clarets appear destined for automatic promotion back to the Premier League under the astute guidance of Vincent Kompany and picked up a 10th league win on the spin at the weekend when they comfortably dispatched Preston 3-0 at home.

Burnley are seven points clear of next-best Sheffield United and a whopping 17 ahead of Middlesbrough in third place with a game in hand, so fans will already be preparing for a return to the big time next term.

There's an argument to suggest they could ease off the gas a bit considering their huge cushion at the top, but expect Kompany's well-drilled side to continue to perform at odds of 4/6 and see off Watford, who are sixth but are without a win in four matches.

OddsBristol City 19/20, Draw 12/5, Wigan 3/1

Wigan have definitely had a new manager bounce under former winger Shaun Maloney, who was appointed their boss at the end of last month. In his first game they drew 0-0 with Blackburn before a 1-0 home win over Huddersfield followed at the weekend.

However, they face a test against Bristol City on Wednesday as the Robins are on a three-game winning run in all competitions and have not lost in six in the league.

This is a tricky one to call but the draw could be the best way to go at odds of 12/5 considering the Latics' clear improvement of late and it will hopefully complete our big-price acca.
