Cardiff City maintained their ten-point advantage at the top of the Championship after Tommy Smith’s wonder goal secured victory at managerless Blackpool on Saturday evening.
Malky Mackay’s men have now lost just once in 13 games, with the chances of a return to top-flight football following an absence of over 50 years reflected by odds of 1/9, while you can back them at 6/11 to win the league.
Leicester City made it four wins in a row by taking all three points in their clash with Middlesbrough on Friday evening and have now leapfrogged Hull City, who were held at Peterborough United, into second place.
The Foxes are 3/1 to secure the title, far ahead of the Tigers, who have gone out to 10/1. They are 11/17 and 2/1 for promotion respectively, while Boro, who remain in the play-off places, are a 3/1 shot.
A price of 3/1 is also on offer for Crystal Palace, who extended their unbeaten home run with a goalless draw against Bolton Wanderers, and for Watford, who thumped Huddersfield Town by four goals to nil.
Burnley rose three places to seventh after beating Millwall at The Den and can be backed at a very generous 16/1, while the Lions, who are one of four teams just a point behind Sean Dyche’s men, are 14/1 to go up.
Brighton and Hove Albion were moments away from taking all three points from Birmingham City, but had to settle for a draw following Nikola Zigic’s stoppage-time equaliser.
The Seagulls are 8/1 in the promotion market, just ahead of tenth-placed Nottingham Forest, who are 9/1 after their draw with local rivals Derby County.
Leeds United bounced back from last weekend’s disappointing defeat to Barnsley by beating Bristol City 1-0, while Charlton Athletic went into the top half after spoiling Michael Appleton’s first game in charge of Blackburn Rovers with victory at Ewood Park.
Bwin offer 10/1 for Neil Warnock to secure an eighth career promotion for the Whites, with Charlton outsiders at 40/1 – twice the price available for Blackburn, who are now ten points off the play-offs after a sixth defeat in ten.
