We have a match of real interest from the English Championship on Saturday afternoon as Fulham take on London neighbours Charlton at Craven Cottage. This fixture will be shown live on Sky Sports from 12.30pm and a sell-out crowd is expected, as well as thousands more keeping pace with the live pictures. Here are our top Fulham v Charlton betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
This promises to be a well-fought out contest and one that could go either way. We could spend hours running through the form and picking out the clues but, as any experienced football bettor will admit, the formbook usually goes out the window in derby matches and that’s sure to be the case again here. Who will prevail? Have your say on the winner or back one of the exciting specials available.
The bookmakers have had their say on how they expect this game to play out and they have priced Fulham as hot favourites. The money men expect to see The Cottagers land three Championship points and they are so confident that’ll be the case there’s nothing more than 1/2 (Bet365) available to punters following the same train of thought. Charlton are certainly no pushovers and there will be a share of attention on them winning at 11/2 with Bet365, the draw marked up at 16/5 with the same online bookmaker.
It’s a Close Call
We’re going to avoid the unpredictability of the match betting and shoot for both teams to score at 5/6. That’s top price when betting with Bet365 and we advise adding it to your weekend accumulators. Small stakes for big wins is the aim here. Add it to multiples with five or six similar selections to give you a healthy interest.
