Three Relegated Sides Head Bookies’ Championship Odds

Silva: His Fulham Top Championship OddsThe Championship is one of the most competitive leagues in Europe and while it is the three newly relegated teams who are the early bookies favourites for the title, they are certainly not the only viable promotion candidates ahead of the 2021-22 season, writes Nick Dorrington.

Last season was the first time since 2011-12 that all three teams relegated from the Premier League the previous season had made the playoffs. Never before in the three-team relegation and promotion era have all three relegated sides gone straight back up.

With that said, the bookmakers and their punters did have things right in the pre-season markets for The Championship odds last year. Title winners Norwich City, runners up Watford and playoff winners Brentford were pegged as the three favourites for the title and promotion before a ball had been kicked.

This time around, it is Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United who newly find themselves in the second tier. All three of them have largely kept their squads together following relegation, although they do have new head coaches: Marco Silva, Valerien Ismael and Slavisa Jokanovic respectively.

Of the three, it is Fulham who arguably have the best squad. It will be interesting to see if Ismael, the architect of the frantic launch and press approach that powered Barnsley to the playoff finish last season can replicate their style of play at West Brom. Sheffield United are probably the most vulnerable of the three, although Jokanovic has previously overseen promotions at both Watford and Fulham.

It says a lot for the financial strains of the current time that the large majority of pre-season deals have been on free transfers. There has been no stand-out big spender and so it seems fairly logical that the teams who have come down from the top flight should be best placed to compete at the top of the table.

Swansea finished closest to last season’s top three but their underlying numbers weren’t as impressive and there is a degree of uncertainty around them coming into the new campaign following the departure of head coach Steve Cooper just a couple of weeks before the kick-off.

Barnsley did superbly well to finish fifth last season and were very awkward opponents for almost everyone. It remains to be seen if new coach Markus Schopp can replicate that success and keep them in playoff contention or better.

Bournemouth were the one relegated team who didn’t go straight back up last season, finishing sixth before losing to Brentford in the playoff semi-finals. Their underlying numbers were good and their new coach Scott Parker oversaw Fulham’s promotion via the playoffs a couple of seasons back before not quite cutting it at a Premier League level.

In truth, it is difficult to see another side cutting through those already mentioned to challenge for the title. The race for playoff places will be very competitive, with a further nine teams to be found at 5/1 or shorter in The Championship betting odds to claim a top 6 finish come the end of the campaign.

Reading were the team who finished seventh last season, falling off during the second half of the campaign after a strong 40-point haul in the first half. They find themselves closer to the back end of the playoff field this time around, just slightly more fancied than Preston, who finished 13th in 2020-21.

Queens Park Rangers picked up more points than anyone except the three promoted sides during the second half of last season, taking 44 points from the midway point onwards after claiming just 24 points prior to that. If they can carry some of that momentum into the new season, they might be in with a shot.

Cardiff were also strong in the second half of the campaign after Mick McCarthy replaced Neil Harris in their dugout, taking a league sixth-best 39 points. There was no accompanying improvement in their underlying numbers and so despite being placed among the playoff favourites, they may find things more difficult than expected.

Middlesbrough, Nottingham Forest and Stoke are some of the other teams thought likely to be in contention. It may also be worth having a look at a Blackburn Rovers side who were never able to put together a good run of results last season despite strong underlying numbers, especially if they are able to keep hold of Adam Armstrong, the league’s second top scorer with 28 goals.

Promoted Sides Favourites in Championship Relegation Odds

At the other end of the table, two of three teams promoted from League One went straight back down last season, and it is newly promoted sides Peterborough and Blackpool who have been installed as the early favourites in The Championship relegation odds this time around. League One champions Hull are seen more favourably, appearing further down the list than a number of teams who were in the Championship last season.

Derby only secured survival on the final day and their ongoing financial issues, and potential punishments arising from them, mean that some bookmakers aren’t even taking bets on their relegation at this stage.

Bristol City were genuinely awful in the second half of 2020-21, claiming just 15 points from a -23 goal difference with underlying numbers that were comfortably the worst in the league. They have to be considered among the favourites to go down. Huddersfield were barely better, while Coventry, the only promoted team to survive last season, could also be in the mix.

Birmingham are more likely to find themselves in mid-table obscurity, where Luton and Millwall, neither likely in threat of relegation, will also most probably be found.

  1. I hope that the bookies will be proven wrong regarding Peterborough United. If they play to their potential, I can see them being promoted; which is why I will be placing a bet on their being promoted.
