Wolves are the favourites to win the Championship this season at odds of just 11/4 with Cardiff emerging as one of the new favourites to win the division at 5/1 with SkyBet.
This comes after the Championship’s favourites have made a number of impressive signings in the transfer window including £15m rated Ruben Neves from Porto. Wolves currently lie in fourth place in the division after a steady start under the guidance of their new boss, Nuno Espirito Santo.
Cardiff appears to have become the shock second-favourites to win the Championship after an incredible start under the guidance of Neil Warnock after they have begun the season with a very impressive unbeaten start and five wins from five games, gaining the maximum points total of 15 points in the League. This has been in no small part down to the goals of Nathaniel Mendez-Laing who has started the season in fine form with four goals in five games.
Fulham lie as third favourites to win the Championship under odds of 8/1 with Garry Monk’s Middlesbrough and Thomas Christiansen’s Leeds United just behind them with odds of 9/1 and 10/1 respectively.
Jokanovic’s Fulham have recruited impressively during the transfer window and he will want to build on the clubs Play-Off finish last season as he targets promotion to the Premier League from the Championship with the London based club.
Garry Monk’s Middlesbrough were tipped as most peoples favourites to win the division after an incredible summer of spending which has seen some real talent move to Teeside in Britt Assombalonga, Martin Braithwaite, Ashley Fletcher, Jonny Howson and Ryan Shotton to name a few. Although they have hardly made a blistering start – expect them to be up there at the end of the season once their team begins to gel together.
Christiansen’s Leeds United have started the season very impressively with an unbeaten start of three wins and two draws during their first five games.
Some other teams who are widely expected to do well and to look out for are: Aston Villa 16/1, Sheffield Wednesday 16/1, Derby 16/1, Norwich 22/1 and Hull City 25/1.
