Leeds as short as 6/1 with some bookmakers after an impressive 3-1 win against Stoke City
Marching on together, we’re gonna see you win. That’s the popular song among Leeds United fans and it might actually prove to be factual this season based on their opening performance against Stoke.
A 3-1 win at Elland Road was richly deserved, with Marcelo Bielsa having an instant impact at the Yorkshire club and they’re now among the favourites to win this season’s Championship title.
Bet365 are among the bookmakers offering 8/1 about Leeds, with Black Type going 6/1 that the Whites are celebrating a Championship title come May.
It’s still early days in the Championship and Stoke City are still the 11/2 favourites, with the Potters looking to bounce back from this early setback and we should remember that the season is only one game old.
Middlesbrough look a shabby price at 8/1 considering they are losing their star man in Adama Traore and were fortunate to bag a 2-2 draw away to Millwall on Saturday, with Derby into 11/1.
There was an element of fortune about their 2-1 victory away to Reading on Friday night, although confidence levels will be high and it’s clear that Frank Lampard is trying to impose a new style of play on his team.
West Brom are out to 12/1 with Black Type following a home reverse against Bolton Wanderers, with Nottingham Forest a best price 12/1 after a 1-1 draw at Bristol City.
Brentford are another market mover after thrashing Rotherham, with Unibet offering a best price 14/1 about the Bees.
