Charlton have started life in the Championship pretty solidly, their only defeat coming to a decent Nottingham Forest side and they have every reason to be confident ahead of the televised derby clash against South London rivals Crystal Palace.
Bookies also expect the Addicks to come out on top, BetVictor rating them at even money and that looks about right given that the Eagles have lost three out of their opening four.
Nevertheless Palace, having picked up their first win last time out, can run the hosts close and it’s worth considering an Athletic success by one, at 3/1 via Ladbrokes. Alternatively, as all of the visitors’ matches this term have been high scoring, BetVictor price Charlton at 8/1 to card a 2-1 success in a fixture that looks certain to produce three or more goals (evens, Stan James).
In the evening’s other fixture, Brighton tackle Sheffield Wednesday and coming into the contest on the back of consecutive victories, the Seagulls are the team to follow at 21/20 courtesy of Betfred.
