Leeds United Favourites To Go Up As Champions


Outright Betting

Leeds United are being backed to end their Premier League exile this season by earning promotion as winners of the Championship.

Luton Town and Middlesbrough raise the curtain on the new season on Friday evening but it’s the Yorkshire side who are favourites to top the league come May and earn promotion having fallen short in the play-offs last season.

BoyleSports have Marcelo Bielsa’s side at 4/1 with Fulham 7/1 second favourites to go straight back up the Premier League as Championship winners.

Leeds (13/8), Fulham (2/1), Cardiff (3/1) and West Brom (3/1) are the most likely promotion contenders, with Stoke City and Middlesbrough 7/2 apiece in their bid to regain Premier League status.

Birmingham City, who have agreed a new principal partnership deal with BoyleSports until the end of the 2020/21 season, are 14/1 shots to follow rivals Aston Villa into the Premier League next season and 15/4 to begin their campaign with a victory away at Brentford on Saturday.
