Betting odds for promotion from the Championship 2018/2019
Which clubs will get promotion from the Championship 2018/2019?
As the Premier League and Championship season 2017/18 have come to an end, the betting starts for the upcoming Championship season 2018/19. Wolves, Cardiff City and Fulham have been promoted to Premier League this season, while Swansea City, Stoke City, and West Brom have been relegated from the Premier League.
Here, we talk about five clubs that are favorites to earn promotion from the Championship to the Premier League in the 2018/19 season.
The relegated club from the Premier League this season stands favorites to go back to the top flight again. Stoke have a good team and it was quite of a shock that they got relegated this season. If they can hold on to their star players like; Shaqiri, Choupo-Moting, Joe Allen, Diouf and reinforce their defense, then they have a very good chance to get promoted as well as being Champions of the Championship 2018/19. They will be playing in the Championship after a decade of Premier League, so they will try to make their time shorter in the second tier of English Football. The manager, Paul Lambert said Stoke City sleepwalked into trouble after their relegation from the Premier League was confirmed by their 2-1 home defeat by Crystal Palace. But he assured that Stoke will be back again in the Premier League.
West Brom finished 20th in the Premier League 2017/18 season. The problem in West Brom lies more in attack than defense. Their midfield has been very weak but strengthening their midfield could mean that they will be back in the Premier League after the next season. Ben Foster, Hegazi, Dawson and Rodriguez are the only players who performed this season and West Brom should try to hold on to these players. Since Darren Moore took over the club in April, West Brom has been impressive and which is why he is expected to lead the club to promotion next season. Moore has accrued 11 points from the 15 available since being named as caretaker and made a 10-point gap to five points.
It was very disappointing for Aston Villa as they lost the play-off final against Fulham. Aston Villa has been fantastic in the Championship 2017/18 season finishing 4th in the league table. After their win against Middlesbrough in the semi-final of the play-off, they failed to win the finals. But they will surely be back next season with the intention of promoting directly to the top flight this time. Aston Villa has talented players like Albert Adomah, James Chester, Keinan Davis and a few more. Chelsea and England legend John Terry also plays for the club and keeping all these players can mean coming back stronger next season.
Swansea finished 18th in the Premier League 2017/18 season. They have scored the least amount of goals over the whole season. Even though they have a talented striker like Jordan Ayew, a weak midfield cost them relegation. They need to hold on to him as well as goal-keeper Fabianski and defenders like Naughton and Mawson. But it is highly possible that they lose all their star players. The manager, Carlos Carvalhal will not see his contract renewed and is set to leave Swansea City.
Since Tony Pulis took over Middlesbrough, they have been very impressive. They had reached the play-offs last season but failed to get promotion after they failed to beat Aston Villa. Tony Pulis was disappointed with the loss as he felt his team didn’t create enough chances. He will come back stronger for promotion next season. Middlesbrough midfielder, Adama Traore has been extraordinary last season alongside Britt Assombalonga, Patrick Bamford, Cyrus Christie, Ayala. If M’Boro can hold on to them they have a very good chance to get promoted next season.
