Betting odds for promotion from the Championship 2020/2021
Who will gain promotion from the 2020/21 EFL Championship?
The 2019/20 EFL Championship season saw Leeds United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham FC promoted to the Premier League. This year, you’ll have many clubs hoping they can replicate the form of these clubs by following their steps to the Premier League. Clubs such as Brentford, Cardiff City, Swansea City and Nottingham Forest all missed out on promotion last season and will have to battle Bournemouth, Norwich and Watford in order to get there this year.
Bournemouth were relegated from the Premier League last season after finishing in 18th place on only 34 points. They were narrowly close to remaining in the first division and will hope that players such as Joshua King, Chris Mepham, Callum Wilson and Lewis Cook will be the key to regaining their spot in the Premier League via promotion.
Despite finishing on equal points to Bournemouth, Watford finished in 19th place due to having a worse goal difference in last year’s Premier League campaign. Although they’ll struggle to keep a hold of Ismaïla Sarr, Gerard Deulofeu and Abdoulaye Doucouré, if they bring in some other top players they’ll be one of the favourites to be promoted to the Premier League.
Norwich finished in 20th place in last season’s Premier League with numerous poor results across the season leading to a 21 points total. Although they’re not heavy favourites like the other two relegated sides, Norwich are known to grind out results and will hope to replicate their form of the 2018/19 Championship season which saw them promoted. Teemu Pukki, Josip Drmić and Emi Buendía will be vital to the side if they are to make a push for the promotion places.
Brentford, Cardiff City and Swansea City finished 3rd, 5th and 6th respectively in last year’s Championship season and missed out on promotion through the playoffs. Brentford will feel hard done by having narrowly missed out on the automatic promotion places, along with reaching the playoff final and losing 2-1 to Fulham.
Welsh sides Swansea City and Cardiff City will also want to reach the Premier League next season via promotion to be the only non English teams in the first division. Swansea have talented players such as André Ayew, Joe Rodon and Matt Grimes who’ll all want to reclaim their spot as the best Welsh team ahead of Cardiff City who’ll also be pushing for promotion.
