Rotherham United Odds: 13/8

Rotherham United won automatic promotion to the Championship when they finished just second in League One, only two points behind champions Wigan.

Since it has been called the Championship, Rotherham have spent a total of six seasons in the league, with their longest period of participation in the Championship being just three seasons.

The first season in the Championship, in the 2004/05 season resulted in relegation as The Millers finished 24th. The only two seasons that didn’t end in Rotherham’s relegation were close affairs as The Millers finished 21st, just above the relegation zone.

A less than ideal record in the Championship and a history of constant promotions and relegations make Rotherham one of the most likely candidates for relegation this season.

Birmingham City Odds: 11/4

Birmingham City kept their place in the Championship with a 20th place finish, ten points above the relegation zone.

This means that The Blues will compete in their 12th consecutive Championship season. However, since their first season back in the Championship in 2011 after their relegation from the Premier League, where they finished fourth, Birmingham haven’t finished higher than 10th.

Birmingham conceded the fourth-highest number of goals in the Championship as they conceded 75 goals, an average of 1.63 goals a game. To further compound this, The Blues only scored 50 goals, only an average of 1.09 goals a game. This combination makes Birmingham likely for relegation from the Championship.

Reading Odds: 11/4

A shock 2 - 1 win over fifth-placed Sheffield United and a 4 - 4 draw with Swansea helped Reading secure their 21st place finish and safety from relegation to play their tenth consecutive season in the Championship.

Reading conceded the most goals in the Championship, as they leaked 87 goals which equates to 1.89 goals per match. Reading also kept the lowest number of clean sheets in the league, only five, leaving The Royals with only 11% of possible clean sheets.

Though The Royals did outscore some of those above them, a return of only 54 goals may not be enough to save Reading from relegation if they perform similarly in the 2022/23 season.

Bristol City Odds: 11/4

Bristol City finished their Championship season 17th with 55 points, 18 points clear of relegation but 20 points adrift of the Play-off places.

This stint in the Championship has lasted seven seasons since 2015, but the highest finish The Robins have achieved in that time is an eighth-place finish in the 2018/19 season.

Bristol City had the third-worst defensive record in the Championship in terms of goals conceded. 77 goals in 46 games meant that The Robins conceded an average of 1.67 goals per match.

This could not be saved by a seventh-place ranking in goals scored in the Championship, which means that Bristol City could be likely candidates to face relegation if their statistics don’t improve.

BRISTOL CITY @ 11/4

Preston North End Odds: 7/2

Though Preston North End finished 13th in the Championship this season, The Lilywhites still look somewhat likely candidates for relegation to League One.

Preston have been in the Championship since the 2015/16 season when they were promoted from League One via the Play-offs. In these seasons Preston’s highest finish has been seventh in the 2017/18 campaign.

The Lilywhites have a less than ideal scoring record, ranking 18th in the Championship on goals scored, scoring just 52 in 46 games.

Preston didn’t fare much better on the defensive side of things either, keeping only 13 clean sheets and conceding 56 goals this season. This combination could make The Lilywhites likely for a return to League One.

Wigan Athletic Odds: 7/2

Wigan Athletic finished top of League One, losing only eight games and winning automatic promotion to the Championship.

Though the Championship is a more challenging league than League One, Wigan had a good goal-scoring record. The Latics scored 82 goals in 46 games, equating to 1.78 goals per match, the best record in League One next to Oxford United.

Wigan also had an impressive defensive record, only conceding 44 goals and keeping 16 clean sheets.

The Latics have had a rollercoaster of a decade, being relegated from the Premier League in 2013, then from the Championship in 2015. Wigan were promoted straight back to the Championship in 2017, but only spent one season there before returning to League One.

This record makes Wigan more and more likely to take the plunge back to League One after this season in the Championship.

Blackpool Odds: 9/2

Blackpool finished 16th in the Championship this season, 23 points clear of the relegation zone but a further 15 points behind the last Play-off place. The 2021/22 season was Blackpool’s first back in the Championship, after a four-season stint in League One and a short stay in League Two back in the 2016/17 season.

The Seasiders had a somewhat average defensive record for a side that placed where they did in the league. The Tangerines conceded 58 goals this season, where they conceded an average of 1.26 goals per game but only kept 11 clean sheets.

However, Blackpool only managed to score 54 goals in 46 games this season, a return that may not be enough to keep them in the Championship after the 2022/23 season.
