Championship Promotion Odds 2021/22 – Fulham Favourites, West Brom at 2/1!

Championship Promotion Odds 2021/22

Here we take a look at the odds of each of the top five favourites to be promoted from the Championship which includes all three of the relegated sides, such as Fulham, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United, as well as beaten playoff finalists Swansea City and semi-finalists AFC Bournemouth.

Fulham Odds: 15/8

Fulham come in as the bookie’s favourites to be promoted from the Championship with the odds of 15/8.

The Cottagers have recently appointed former Watford and Everton manager Marco Silva to replace the recently departed Scott Parker who left Craven Cottage to takeover at Bournemouth. Fulham’s Championship record has been good in their last two seasons in the division, having finished third and fourth and being promoted via the play-offs twice, defeating Aston Villa and Brentford at Wembley in the playoff final in the process.

If Fulham are to complete the feat of being promoted back to the Premier League for the third time in a row then they will likely be relying on the goalscoring form of Serbian striker Aleksandr Mitrovic who found the back of the net 26 times in England’s second-tier last time out.

Silva's side are priced at 15/8 to be promoted back to the Premier League at the first time of asking for a third time in a row - click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!

West Bromwich Albion Odds: 2/1

Next up is West Brom who are the second favourites to be promoted to the Premier League, having finished 19th in the top-flight in the 2020/21 season.

The Baggies are priced at 2/1 despite the departure of several key players and Sam Allardyce, as they have recently appointed former LASK manager Valerien Ismael from fellow Championship outfit Barnsley, having worked miracles with the Tykes as they mounted an unlikely playoff charge last season.

West Brom do have a good promotion record from England’s second-tier, having managed it five times since 2001, which saw them manage an accumulated total of 12 seasons in the Premier League. Last time out in the Championship, they finished in second place under Slaven Bilic on 83 points from 46 matches, whilst Charlie Austin and Hal Robson Kanu were their top scorers with 10 goals each.

This time around the Baggies will be relying on the likes of Karlan Grant and Callum Robinson to get the goals and if they do manage to keep hold of the majority of their current squad, then they look in good shape for the upcoming season having made some solid additions in Alex Mowatt who was the key man for Ismael at Barnsley, as well as Brighton defender Matt Clarke on loan.

West Brom have the odds of 2/1 to be promoted to the Premier League in the 2021/22 season.

Sheffield United Odds: 9/4

Sheffield United endured a torrid time in the 2020/21 season as they were relegated from the Premier League with just 23 points to their name and in all truth, their relegation from the top-flight seemed an inevitability around Christmas time as it took them until 12th January to earn their first win of the league season, their poor form also resulted in legendary club manager Chris Wilder leaving Bramall Lane.

However, there is still plenty to be optimistic about for the Blades, as they are one of the favourites to be promoted back to the ‘big time’ and have appointed a manager with a good record of earning promotions in Slaviša Jokanović, having managed this with Watford in the 2014/15 season finishing second in the table, as well as with Fulham via the playoffs in the 2017/18 campaign.

So far, Sheffield have managed to keep the majority of their squad together with the exception of the likes of John Lundstram who left Bramall Lane to join Rangers on a free transfer following the expiry of his contract. The Blades had a handful of players who struggled to perform in the Premier League such as Rhian Brewster and perhaps a spell in the Championship could revitalise the former Liverpool man and help fire his team to promotion.

The Blades are priced at 9/4 to bounce straight back to the Premier League in the upcoming campaign.

AFC Bournemouth Odds: 10/3

Last season Bournemouth were beaten playoff semi-finalists having been beaten by Brentford over the course of two legs. The Cherries often struggled to find consistency under Jason Tindall and Jonathan Woodgate which ultimately cost both coaches their positions as manager of the club, leaving the door open to former Fulham manager Parker, as mentioned above.

This will be a tricky job for Parker who earned promotion from the Championship in his only season in charge at this level with Fulham back in 2019/20, as the likes of Arnaut Danjuma are expected to leave the Vitality Stadium, whilst it could also be tough to keep hold of Jefferson Lerma and David Brooks.

If the Cherries are to fight and earn their way to the Premier League once again then they will have to recruit well in the current transfer window to stand a good chance as they have just 21 players on their books, with three of these being goalkeepers, as well as having many youngsters who are yet to play at this level.

Bournemouth have the odds of 10/3 to earn promotion back to England's top-flight having failed to do so last time out.

Swansea City Odds: 9/2

The final team on this list of clubs that are expected to be fighting for promotion is Swansea City.

Steve Cooper’s side on paper are edging to promotion, having been beaten by Brentford in the playoff semi-finals in 2020, before losing out to the Bees in the final of last season’s playoff final.

The Swans are known for playing an attractive brand of football and do have a young squad, which means that they will have to recruit well in general which is something that they have certainly done since Cooper’s arrival at the Liberty Stadium.

As well as nearing promotion via the playoffs in Cooper’s first two seasons as manager of the Swans, they have also improved season upon season under the former Liverpool and England youth manager, having sneaked into the playoffs via one goal in the 2019/20 campaign on 70 points at the expense of Nottingham Forest, whilst last time out they finished in fourth place on 80 points.

If Swansea are to get promoted back to the Premier League for the first time since the 2017/18 season then they will have to show maturity once again and find a way to get over the finish line having come so close last time out.

The Swans are priced at 9/2 to go one better than they did last season by earning promotion to the Premier League.
