Meanwhile, Norwich host Sheffield United in tough clash and Blackburn welcome Hull to Ewood Park
With the FA Cup taking centre stage next weekend, there are few games to be played in the EFL Championship, although there are a few intriguing clashes about. On Saturday (26 January), table toppers Leeds will hope to get back to winning ways at Rotherham, while second plays third as Norwich host Sheffield United, and promotion hopefuls Hull travel to take on Blackburn.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, the clash between Rotherham and Leeds. Rotherham are in desperately poor form, having lost their last three games in a row across all competitions – they sit two points above the relegation zone, are scoring at a rate of less than a goal a game and are priced at just 1.72 to be relegated at the end of the season.
Leeds, in stark contrast, sit top of the table with a one point advantage over Norwich. Despite losing their most recent game, 2-1 t Stoke, they remain the favourites to win the league title and are priced at just 2.25 to do so.
Regarding this match, it is of little surprise to see that it is Leeds who come in as the clear favourites to get back to winning ways. You can back the league leaders to collect the points at just 1.57 while Rotherham, despite home advantage, are out at 5.75 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.00, according to Oddsshark.
This should be a comfortable afternoon for Leeds. A 2-0 win for the visitors comes in at 7.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$37.50 pay out, while you can more than double your money by backing a combo bet of a Leeds win, coupled with a “No” to both teams scoring, which is priced at 2.62.
Norwich and Sheffield United meet in mouth-watering clash
Arguably the tie of the round will be at Carrow Road, as Norwich City host Sheffield United. The Canaries sit second in the table, just a point behind Leeds, and are priced at 2.00 to win automatic promotion back to the Premier League from EFL this season.
Sheffield United, meanwhile, could move level on points with a win on the road this weekend. The Blades are priced slightly higher, at 2.87 to finish in the top two, thus earning an automatic promotion spot.
And while the betting is tight, it is Norwich who come into this match as the slight favourites to bag a crucial three points. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.40, with Sheffield United just above at 2.80 – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.40.
This should be a close call, but home advantage should be a key factor. A narrow, 2-1 win for Norwich is priced at 9.50, thereby offering close to a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can more than quadruple your money by backing a combo bet of a Norwich win, coupled with both teams to score, at 4.50.
Blackburn look to make it four in a row against Hull
And finally, Blackburn welcome Hull to Ewood Park looking to make it four league wins on the bounce. Rovers currently sit 10th in the table and are priced at 11.00 to finish the season in the top six.
Hull are level on points with their opponents but sit two places higher in the standings owing to a superior goal difference. The Tigers are slightly shorter – at 10.00 – to earn a play-off place this term.
And it is home side Blackburn who come in as the favourites to win this clash. You can more than double your money by backing the Rovers to take the points at 2.30, with Hull out at 3.00 to do the same – a draw comes in highest of all, at 3.40.
And we are expecting Blackburn to keep their winning streak alive. A 1-0 win for the Rovers is priced at 8.50, while you can more than double your money by backing a “No” to both teams scoring at 2.10.
