There is plenty of Championship action to look forward to this weekend with some huge games in store. There is a clash between Ipswich Town and West Bromwich Albion as both teams look to strengthen their top-two and top-six chances respectively.

You also have fellow promotion hopefuls Southampton and Leeds United taking on Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United respectively, with both games likely to have an impact at both ends of the table.

We've scoped all the fixtures for the weekend and below we have laid out what we feel are the best betting selections in the second tier.

Weekend Championship Betting Tips - 10/11 February

  • Jaden Philogene to score anytime in Hull City vs Swansea City- 15/8
  • Morgan Whittaker to score anytime in Sunderland vs Plymouth Argyle - 11/4
  • Southampton to win to nil against Huddersfield Town - 21/20

Jaden Philogene to score anytime in Hull City vs Swansea City @ 15/8

Hull are having a jolly time in the Championship this season as they sit sixth in the table, with their play-off hopes becoming more of a reality as each game passes.

Liam Rosenior has overseen an excellent job on Humberside but plenty of credit must go to his players. One of his stars, Jaden Philogene, has been outstanding this term following his transfer from Aston Villa in the summer.

The winger has recently returned from injury and scored on his last outing against Millwall, taking his tally for the season up to 15. Up next for the Tigers is a Swansea side which has lost four in a row, so he is one to keep an eye on if you want a goalscorer to bet on here.

Morgan Whittaker to score anytime in Sunderland vs Plymouth Argyle @ 11/4

Another player we are fancying to score this weekend is arguably the signing of the season in the Championship and that is Plymouth's Morgan Whittaker. Having cost the Pilgrims just £1 million in the summer, Whittaker has contributed 16 goals in 29 appearances, making him the joint-leading marksman in the division.

Against a Sunderland side that have failed to keep a clean sheet since New Year's Day, and whom he scored against in the reverse fixture earlier in the campaign, we think he offers great value to add to his tally this weekend.

Southampton to win to nil against Huddersfield Town @ 21/20

Huddersfield pulled off one of the most surprising results of the season last week as they battered Sheffield Wednesday 4-0. Although that will have raised confidence in the Terriers dressing room, that looks to quickly fade as they head south to face promotion-chasing Southampton.

The Saints look unstoppable under Russell Martin as they boast a 21-game unbeaten run in the Championship stretching back to September. They look primed to secure the second automatic promotion stop and victory over the Terriers at St Mary's should be routine for them on Saturday.
