As all attention turns to the International break on Friday night, Burnley are sitting at the top of the Championship table having won their last five games in a row, alongside the highest goal difference in the league.
Leading odds comparison site Oddschecker.com can reveal that the Clarets are best priced at 14/1 with Paddy Power to be crowned champions of the Championship, having been as long as 83/1 at the start of the season.
Sitting level on points with Burnley are QPR, who are still the bookmakers favourites to win the Championship this season. Having conceded just two goals in ten games, Harry Redknapp’s men are available at 11/10 with bet365. Interestingly, 5th placed Watford are second favourites to win the Championship, best priced at 7/1 with Boylesports.
Having been one of the favourites for relegation at the start of the season, Sean Dyche’s men are now one of the favourites for promotion. Having been as long as 17/1 to gain promotion back to the top flight at the start of the season, the Clarets are now 4/1 to be promoted to the Premier League.
Both Sam Vokes and Danny Ings are in rich goals scoring form at the moment and both have seen their odds of being the Championship’s top scorer come the end of the season shorten. Sam Vokes, who has scored eight goals this season, including four in his last three games, is on offer at 20/1 with Stan James to be the league’s top goal scorer this season. Danny Ings has scored seven league goals this season and is best priced at 25/1 with Coral having been 100/1 at the start of the season.
