The Championship campaign is now well underway and with all teams having played twice, only Ian Holloway’s Blackpool can boast a 100% record, while Sheffield Wednesday, Charlton Athletic, Blackburn Rovers, Ipswich Town, Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City are also yet to taste defeat, having won one match and drawn the other.
However, Bolton Wanderers, who lost their opening game to local rivals Burnley, have powered to the top of the title betting market following their convincing 2-0 victory over Derby County on Tuesday evening.
Bolton have been trimmed from 7/1 to 6/1, while other neighbours Blackburn are now second favourites after edging past Hull City on Wednesday, with a price of 7/1 available for them to clinch the title (compared to their previous quote of 10/1).
Leicester, who headed up the market prior to the midweek games, have gone out from 11/2 to 15/2 following their defeat to Charlton, who themselves are now at 7/1 to win promotion following their unbeaten start to the campaign.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, beaten by Leeds United last weekend, have come in from 12/1 to 9/1 following their first league victory since February – they beat Barnsley 3-1 at Molineux in Stale Solbakken’s opening home match at the helm.
Leeds have drifted out to 16/1 for the Championship title following their defeat at Blackpool, who, as the only side to win both of their games, now stand at 10/1 for the title and just 33/10 for promotion back to the Premier League (in from 14/1 and 4/1 respectively).
Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest stay where they were after being just moments away from making it two wins out of two, only to be denied by a late Huddersfield equaliser.
Sean O’Driscoll’s men are still on offer at 12/1 to win the league, with Cardiff, who drew with Brighton and Hove Albion in midweek, available at the same price.
