2018/19 Championship Promotion Betting TipsStoke City, Swansea and West Bromwich Albion are all looking to bounce straight back to the Premier League following relegation last term.
The Potters replaced Paul Lambert with Gary Rowett which could prove to be a masterstroke. A pretty busy transfer window has brought Benik Afobe, Tom Ince, Adam Federici and James McClean to Bet365 Stadium and this has strengthen an already healthy squad.
WBA are just behind Stoke City in the betting market despite a fairly quiet summer in terms of new signings, with the biggest piece of news being the appointment of Darren Moore as the clubs new manager.
Swansea didn't make big moves in the transfer market at the time of writing while key players such as Andrè Ayew and Alfie Mawson have left the club. We expect the Swans to struggle and languishing in mid-table.
The appointment of Aitor Karanka back in January was a positive step for Nottingham Forest and we expect them to fight for the play-off spots this season despite have finished down in 17th last season, as this summer brought a number of impressive additions, including Joao Carvalho from Benfica, Lewis Grabban, Gil Dias and Tobias Figueiredo.
Leeds will be hoping to get promoted under the guide of 'El Loco' Marcelo Bielsa with high-profile signings potentially to come before the deadline.
Blackburn and Wigan earned promotion from League One with the minimum of fuss and they are expected to have a successful season. Could they upset the favoruites?
Teams can come from nowhere to gain promotion from the Championship - just look at Cardiff last term - and Preston may just be a surprise package this time around. The club ended up seventh last season, just two points outside the play-offs, and look more settled this term.
2018/19 Championship Relegation Betting TipsRotherham are odds on favourites to drop into League One for the second time in three years. The Millers finished rock bottom with just 23 points in the 15/16 season, conceding a massive 98 goals in the process. They've had an underwhelming transfer window too with just Clarke Roberston, Kyle Vassell and Billy Jones coming in on permanent deals
Bolton are second favourites for the drop. Anyway, Phil Parkinson has brought in some shrewd signings in an attempt to avoid any more final-day drama this season. The club has struggled financially over the last few seasons which has undoubtedly played a part in them struggling to secure several of their top transfer targets.
Aston Villa are in financial turmoil, with reports suggesting they can't even afford to bring in free transfers or loan players. They have a good roster as they played theChampionship play-off final in May, but key players have already departed and more will follow through the exit door.
Sheffield Wednesday have problems with Financial Fair Play too. They finished last season in 15th, and they've done little this summer to show that they will improve on that this time round.
QPR finished last season in 16th. They aren't a squad blessed with top-end talent in this division and McClaren won't get the best out of them in all likelihood.
Hull have lost plenty of experienced players such as David Meyler, Allan McGregor, Abel Hernandez, Michael Dawson and Seb Larsson and we expect the Tigers to be in the bottom half of the table at the end of the season.
