Newcastle Bouncing Back The Championship Odds Suggest

Rafa Benitez

The Championship has always been known as one of the most unpredictable divisions around, and things are unlikely to be any different in the 2016/17 campaign, writes Greg.

There have been shocks and surprises in the first four rounds of matches as 24 teams fight to stay in the second tier or get promoted out of it. The presence of two Champions League-winning managers has lent the league a sense of grandeur this term. One of those bosses is Rafael Benitez (pictured), who won Europe’s primary continental club competition while in charge of Liverpool in 2005. He is now the Newcastle United coach and, after being unable to save them from the drop last time out, is targeting an immediate return to the top flight.

Newcastle are the heavy favourites in the Championship odds to win the league despite losing players such as Andros Townsend and Georginio Wijnaldum in the summer, and it would be a massive surprise were they still in the Championship in 2017/18.

Norwich City and Aston Villa also finished last season’s Premier League campaign in the drop zone and will be aiming to get back there as soon as possible. Norwich have managed to retain the bulk of their squad – including Robbie Brady, Wes Hoolahan, Timm Klose and Steven Naismith, as well as manager Alex Neil – and will hope that continuity pays off. At the time of writing, Norwich are evens in the promotion betting odds to go straight back up.

Aston Villa have spent big under new Chinese owner Dr Tony Xia and ex-Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo, bringing in Ross McCormack, Mile Jedinak, Tommy Elphick, Pierluigi Gollini, Aaron Tshibola and James Chester for a combined cost of £36 million. Idrissa Gueye has been sold to Everton but Villa have done well to retain the services of striker Jordan Ayew, who should be a big player for them in the Championship.

Sheffield Wednesday, Brighton and Hove Albion and Derby County all fell short in the play-offs last year and will want to go one better this time around. Wednesday, who lost the final at Wembley to Hull City, overachieved in 2015/16 and will now have to deal with added pressure and expectation. Brighton are in a similar position after only missing out on automatic promotion on goal difference in May. Derby have fallen short in the play-offs in two of the last three campaigns and will now be aiming to spare themselves the heartache by finishing in the top two under the guidance of former Leicester boss Nigel Pearson.

Huddersfield Town are the surprise front-runners after four matches: David Wagner’s charges are looking down from the summit of the standings after impressively amassing 10 points from clashes with Brentford, Newcastle, Aston Villa and Barnsley. They will have their eyes on a play-off spot this year, as will Wolverhampton Wanderers after their excellent start.

Queens Park Rangers, Birmingham City, Ipswich Town, Brentford and Nottingham Forest will have headed into the season with ambitions of a top-six finish and a shot at promotion, too.

As already mentioned, the Championship is an unpredictable league and plenty of teams have confounded expectations in the past, but the likes of Cardiff City, Leeds United, Fulham, Bristol City, Barnsley and Wigan Athletic will probably have to settle for a mid-table spot this term.

Burton Albion, Blackburn Rovers, Rotherham United, Reading and Preston North End all look set to battle it out at the bottom of the table, with all five teams looking to stay out of the bottom three and avoid demotion to the third tier of the English game.

Burton have the dubious honour of being favourites in the Championship relegation odds and the betting does not look good for Blackburn and Rotherham either.

Another interesting feature of any Championship season is the race for the Golden Boot. Newcastle’s Dwight Gayle currently leads the way with four goals in four games, with Wigan’s Will Grigg, Forest duo Oliver Burke and Britt Assombalonga, Brighton pair Anthony Knockaert and Glenn Murray, QPR’s Tjaronn Chery, Ipswich’s Grant Ward and Burton’s Tom Naylor just behind on three.  Ross McCormack, Tammy Abraham, Rudy Gestede, Cameron Jerome and Fernando Forestieri could also be up there by the end of the campaign. So keep an eye on our top goalscorer betting odds in the comparison table above this preview.
