The Sky Bet Championship is one of the hardest leagues to get out of. The prize of a place in the English Premier Division is huge worth at least £170 million pounds according to Deloitte’s Sports Business Group.
The league is usually very tight, half the teams in the division have recent experience of playing in the Premiership. The championship is now called the EFL ( English Football League) and Sky sports will be showing 112 championship games live during the 2016 / 17.
Next season premier league big guns who got relegated last season include Norwich Newcastle and Aston Villa, they will join other giants of English football including Leeds, Nottingham Forest and Derby. The number of teams who have a good chance of winning makes the championship title outright betting market very popular.
The betting on who will win the league this season and earn a place in the top league in England Premier League is close, with recently relegated clubs from the Premier League always expected to do really well and to go up at this first time of asking. Also the teams promoted from league 1 will want to establish themselves in the higher division.
So who do you think will win the championship? What aboutBristol City, can they get an automatic promotion spot? Can Newcastle get back into the premiership?
