Several bookies have opened their long-term early betting markets on the English Championship football league, and as such you can now take an early punt on any team that you think is going to be crowned the champions of that league this coming season.
It is not only outright win bets you can place on any team, for bookies such as BetFred will let you place an each-way bet, and even if your team doesn’t win after placing such a bet you will still get paid out at once quarter the win odds if you teams finishes in second or third spot.
Looking at the teams that are listed at the top of the betting market to be the winner of the English Championship next season, well Leeds are there as the current 5/1 favourites, and those odds will look very generous if they do start to win plenty of matches once the season starts.
The next team in the betting and therefore the second favourite to win the title race are Fulham, and they do look a solid bet considering they are being offered at plenty of different betting sites at odds of or around the 15/2 mark.
Teams with a Reasonable Chance of Success
Looking further down the betting markets you will find plenty of teams that may just go on to win or much more likely get placed in one of the top three positions at the end of next season, and there is no getting away from the fact the odds on teams such as West Brom at 10/1 will tempt many a punter to back them.
Having said that though a case could be made for teams such as Cardiff at 11/1 and Stoke at 12/1 and who is to say that Middlesbrough are not going to have a great season in 2019/20 and plenty of their supports will be prepared to back them right now at odds of at least 14/1 for sure.
Teams Not Many Punters are Backing
It really is a bit too early in the betting to be in a position to make sense of the odds, however it is safe to say that some teams are not being backed in great numbers, and three teams that do fit into that category are Brentford, Derby and Huddersfield as reflected by their high outright win odds of 16/1.
The odds available on teams such as Bristol City, Sheff Wed and Nottingham Forest are 20/1, but if you do want to back any of them or any of the teams listed below today or in the next few days you will be much more likely to get much better odds than any bookie will be offering you by placing your bets on the betting exchange over at Betfair.
The other teams and their current outright win odds are Swansea at 25/1, Preston at 28/1 and Birmingham at 33/1. Luton, Hull and Blackburn can be backed at odds of 40/1m and both Reading and QPR are 50/1, followed closely by Millwall, Charlton and Wigan at 66/1 and Barnsley are the rank outsiders currently at huge odds of 80/1.
