Big Championship Sides Clash on Matchday One

Betting on week one of the new Championship season sees some of the division\’s biggest clubs facing off. Birmingham City relegated last season from the Premiership host Sheffield United, themselves demoted two years ago. Both sides are desperate to get back into the big time. Players and management know that their fans will tolerate nothing less than success, without which their jobs could be under pressure before Christmas. Birmingham have kept the nucleus of the side that went down last season, which see them as a serious title contender, whereas Sheffield United need to rebuild having ditched, boss, Bryan Robson, halfway through last term\’s unsuccessful bid to even make the play-offs. Pinnacle sportsbook review Championship betting menu prices Birmingham favourites 2.090 (-0.5)*with Sheffield United 1.840 (+0.5)* a market priced to close to 102%.

The other big matchday one Championship sports betting matchup is an all London affair at Selhurst Park, as Neil Warnock\’s, Crystal Palace, host Watford. Palace were agonisingly close to making last season\’s playoff finals, with only a missed penalty denying them the chance of promotion back to the Premiership. Under Warnock, the Eagles were the form side in the final third of the season, and if they continue were they left off, will be serious contenders in the Championship outright betting. Watford led the division for much of last term, but got a nose bleed late on, and were comprehensively beaten by Hull in the play-offs. Coach, Aidy Boothroyd will have the Hornets fired up to go one better this year. Pinnacle Sportsbook Championship betting has Crystal Palace slight favourites 1.926 (0/scratch & -0.5)* with Watford 2.000 (0/scratch & +0.5)*.
