With so many betting options available, our tipster looks at the second tier of English football in search of value from the anytime scorer markets

Predicting potential goalscorers can be a profitable form of betting, especially if punters can spot trends in a player's form and fondness for upcoming opposition.

With that in mind, here are three anytime scorer plays from the upcoming round of Championship action.

Lukas Jutkiewicz (vs Norwich) at 9/4 (3.25)

Birmingham's most dangerous striker has a great chance of extending his impressive campaign against Norwich in the Friday night game.

The target man has scored 10 goals already this season with a lot of them coming from either crosses or set pieces. 

Norwich's defence have been poor at defending set pieces this season, with 12 of their goals conceded coming from dead ball situations. Factor in the that Jutkiewicz wins 12.5 aerial duels on average per game and this could be the perfect opportunity for him to grab a goal.

Odds of 9/4 (3.25) for the English striker to score are generous and are certainly worth getting involved with.

Steven Fletcher (vs Wigan) at 2/1 (3.0)

The Scotland international is looking to get his goalscoring form back for Sheffield Wednesday before new manager Steve Bruce takes over next month. There may be no better opportunity than this weekend.

Fletcher scored in the Owls' last home game against Birmingham which should give him confidence heading into this one. Alongside that he has an exceptional record against Wigan throughout his career.

The 31-year-old has scored six goals in his last six league appearances against Wigan and with the Latics conceding 10 in their last four league games, Fletcher looks to have a solid chance of making it seven in seven on Saturday.

A price of 2/1 (3.00) on the Wednesday striker scoring anytime with bet365 looks very appealing indeed.

Neal Maupay (vs Rotherham) at 11/10 (2.10)

This is quite an obvious selection to score but odds of 11/10 (2.10) may still be good value when you look further into the stats.

Maupay is the Championship's joint-second highest scorer with 15 strikes but he also has scored in more games than any other player in the division, netting in 12 different matches.

Furthermore, in Brentford's last two meetings with Rotherham they have scored a total nine goals.

The match will also be officiated by Tony Harrington, who has given nine penalties in the 15 games he has been the man in the middle for this season.

If the Bees are given a spot kick the Frenchman will be the one to step up - and he has already buried all three of his penalties this season.
