Relegated Sides Top Bookmakers’ Championship Odds

Farke: Norwich top Championship OddsThe three sides relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season are all near the top of the bookmakers’ Championship odds for 2020-21, writes Nick Dorrington.

Norwich and Watford are the two favourites in both the Championship outright winner betting and promotion markets, while Bournemouth are also part of the top four in both of those with the large majority of the top British online bookies. Only Brentford stand in a way of a clean sweep.

Funnily enough, Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich were all promoted to the Premier League together after finishing in that order at the top of the Championship in 2014-15. The chances of them doing so again seem pretty slim regardless of the current odds.

Only once in the last 10 seasons has more than one relegated team gone straight back up to the top flight. In fact, in two of the last three seasons, none of the relegated sides have achieved promotion. Two of them got into the playoffs last season, with Fulham going up, but that was only the fourth time in the last decade that two or more relegated teams have even made the playoffs. The only time all three have done so was in 2011-12.

Some of that is due to circumstance. There are teams who overexert themselves in an attempt to remain in the Premier League and then have to cut costs pretty swiftly, leaving them undermanned for a promotion push. It is also the case that the Championship is a very competitive league and that it doesn’t necessarily stand to reason that teams relegated from the top flight will automatically be amongst the best at this level.

Manager Daniel Farke’s Norwich do look a worthy favourite for promotion, having kept the large majority of their squad together whilst making some good additions, both permanently and on loan. It gives them a group that on paper looks to be the strongest in the division.

It is difficult to get good grasp on what Watford’s squad will eventually look like once all their dealings are done, while Vladimir Ivic is a relatively left-field appointment as head coach. They may well prove to be a top-six side, but there is more uncertainty there than the average punter may wish to commit to at the available early-season betting odds. Even more exists around Bournemouth, with four starters and long-standing head coach Eddie Howe all gone.

Brentford were by far and away the best side of those who failed to make it up to the Premier League last season, finishing third before losing out to Fulham in the playoff final. One member of their highly potent forward line has already departed, while another could yet do so, and while experience suggests they will reinvest well, it remains to be seen whether they will be quite as good as they were last season.

Cardiff and Swansea took the remaining playoff spots in 2019-20, although the latter had much stronger metrics and seem to be more fancied to repeat that feat this time around.

Stoke have emerged as a favoured choice to grab a playoff spot following their turnaround under the stewardship of Michael O’Neill last season. They were bottom of the pile when he took over in November, but he had them up to 15th by the end of the campaign. From January onwards, they achieved top-six results with top-six metrics, a combination that suggests a good start to the new campaign could put them well in contention for promotion.

Nottingham Forest, Millwall and Preston North End finished seventh, eighth and ninth last season and will all hope to again be in the mix. Middlesbrough, Derby, Birmingham, Bristol City and Blackburn all begin the campaign at 10/1 or shorter in The Championship odds to be promoted with at least a couple of bookmakers. Preston’s underlying numbers were the best of all those sides last season. Bristol City and Derby were arguably fortunate to finish as high up as they did.

Teams High In The Championship Relegation Odds

At the other end of the table, Wycombe Wanderers are the clear early betting favourites for the drop in the Championship relegation odds. Their promotion was fairly controversial due to the manner in which playoff qualification was calculated after the shutdown of League One due to the pandemic and they looked little more than an average side at that level for much of the campaign. It would take some doing for them to avoid an immediate return to the third tier.

It says something for just how unfancied Wycombe are that Sheffield Wednesday have longer odds for relegation despite beginning the season with a 12-point deduction for breaking league spending rules. In fairness, Wigan came very close to avoiding the drop with the same handicap last season, but given that Wednesday took less points than all but one side from January onwards, it still looks a very tall task.

Other favourites for relegation include a Luton side who had genuinely awful underlying numbers last season, plus Coventry and Rotherham, the two other sides promoted from League One. Huddersfield and Reading won’t necessarily be safe, while Queens Park Rangers are also fairly close to the top of the bookmakers’ rankings but should be okay even if Eberechi Eze’s departure leaves a big hole in their attack.

Barnsley’s underlying numbers improved immensely following the appointment of Gerhard Struber in November and while the switch around in results wasn’t as dramatic, they were still able to avoid relegation by a single point. They can be expected to secure a more comfortable mid-table placing this time around.
