Championship Betting Guide: Middlesbrough worthy favs, Villa odds less appeal

Garry Monk

The Championship can lay claim to being one of the most competitive and unpredictable leagues in Europe and with the prize of Premier League riches on the line, it can again be expected to live up to that billing this time around, writes Nick.

Aston Villa and Middlesbrough have been installed as the pre-season favourites in The Championship odds with the majority of bookmakers and that certainly looks a fair assessment in Middlesbrough’s case. Garry Monk did very solid work at the helm of Leeds United last season and has a squad that features enough quality and experience to compete for an automatic promotion berth.

Villa have brought in John Terry among some other experienced campaigners but it is still asking a lot for them to improve from their 14th-place finish last time out to the place in the top two that would be required for automatic promotion. They are, however, certainly likely to challenge strongly for a playoff place.

The other four teams clustered at 10/1 or under to win the league and at under 4/1 to be promoted include Fulham and Sheffield Wednesday, both of whom made the playoffs last year and look solidly placed to do so again. There is also a Norwich side who have seen considerable turnover in staff and players over the summer and who may take some time to settle, and Wolves, who have leveraged their Portuguese connections to make some quality additions.

Just below, Leeds and Derby both made good starts last time out, only to fade during the second half of the season. Derby have made some very solid signings and have in Gary Rowett a coach determined to prove his worth after unfairly losing his job at Birmingham City last season, while Leeds have spent a solid amount of money but may need time to gel under new management.

There are frequently surprise challengers in the Championship, as we saw last season with Huddersfield. They jumped from 19th in the 2015-16 season to a fifth-placed finish last time out and then defeated Sheffield Wednesday and Reading in the playoffs to secure themselves a place in the Premier League.

Picking out such teams prior to the start of the campaign is tricky, but there are a couple who could be capable of securing a playoff place if things go well for them. Cardiff had a strong second half of last season and although Peter Whittingham’s attacking output will be missed, they have bought well. Sheffield United stormed to the League One title last season and have a very promising coach in Chris Wilder, with three promotions to his name. Both those teams can be backed at 33/1 in The Championship odds – see the betting comparison tables above.

Also worth watching out for are Birmingham City, who have Harry Redknapp at the helm and a squad that is better than they showed during the second half of last season. Reading need to overcome the psychological blow of defeat in the playoff final but they are expected to challenge for a playoff spot.

Two teams who are unlikely to be in the running are the other couple of sides who were relegated from the Premier League last season. Hull have sold off the majority of their best performers, while their new coach Leonid Slutsky has never coached outside of his native Russia. Sunderland were dismal last season and haven’t bought sufficiently well to suggest they’ll be strong enough to sustain a promotion challenge this time around.

Brentford have finished inside the top 10 in each of the last two seasons and could make the jump to the top seven this time around if their signings from abroad settle quickly, while Preston North End have finished 11th twice in a row and are again likely to find themselves in the relative obscurity of mid-table.

At the bottom, Barnsley were one of the league’s worst sides during the second half of last season and will need to make a good start this time around if they are to avoid a relegation scrap. Burton, Bristol City (who will miss the goals of Tammy Abraham), Ipswich, Nottingham Forest and Queen’s Park Rangers all finished within four points of the drop last time out. As reflected by the bookies’ Championship relegation betting odds, the newly promoted sides Bolton and Millwall are also likely to struggle.
