The Football League Championship, sponsored by Npower is the second tier of the English Football League system. Betting is very popular in this highly competitive division with usually the three teams relegated from the Premier League heading the market for a quick return back to the top flight.
The season culminates with the end of season play offs where the teams who finished 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th fight it out for the remaining promotion spot, where the winner of the Wembley final, a match dubbed as the “richest game in club football”, gains promotion to the Premier League
and can look forward to the reported £90million that comes with it.
Southampton are this season’s surprise package, heading the table during the first half of the season, looking set fair for successive promotions having been promoted from League One last season, with West Ham firmly in touch looking to regain their top flight status at the first attempt.
