Relegated trio Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich City are strong contenders to bounce straight back following relegation from the Premier League, and all have short odds on EFL Championship promotion.
As ever though, the list of contenders is long. Early pace setters included Bristol City and Reading – both under new management – while Steve Cooper’s stylish Swansea City have impressed – as have play-off runners up Brentford.
Former Northern Ireland boss Michael O’Neill has been hoping to challenge with Stoke City, while Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Preston North End g – and East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest and Derby County – will hope it’s finally their time.
The odds for your particular bet won’t change after you’ve placed it. However, Championship odds change all the time – especially given the competitive nature of the league – so you might well see prices lengthen or shorten for others placing the same bet as you.
As with most events and sports, odds for Championship bets will typically be written as a fraction – they represent the chance of something happening and the amount of money you win if it does.
If something has odds of 3/1 you’d win £3 for every £1 you placed, plus your stake returned. Check out our guide to betting rules for more information about how odds work.
There are no guarantees when it comes to betting – and outcomes can never be predicted every time. But many punters like to look at the latest data, study the form of both sides and consider things such as injuries and tactics when looking at Championship betting odds, since this is a division where upsets are common.
