EFL Championship Betting & Statistics

The EFL Championship is the second tier of English soccer and consists of  24 teams that play 46 games home and away. The sheer number of matches in the Championship makes for a grueling season, with a big squad needed if promotion is to be realized.

The EFL Championship has become more of a betting medium with its competitiveness leading to shocks aplenty, there is real betting value available for Championship handicappers.

Like the EPL the most popular wagers are the 1x2 markets, over/under 2.5 goals, and correct score predictions.

The bookies compete with each other to offer the best odds knowing the number of customers who look for value away from the EPL, with their first search going to the EFL Betting odds.

You will find huge variations between the best and worst odds, which can make a big difference to your returns, especially when it comes to EFL Championship Accumulator wagers.

The season is played from August through to May with the top 2 being automatically promoted to the lucrative Premier League. Promotion to the EPL is said to be worth close to 200 million pounds, so you can wager the Chairman of the EFL Championship teams is doing all within their powers to gain promotion.

The teams finishing in 3rd to 6th place each season meet in the Championship play-offs with the winner being promoted to the Premier League.

In the play-offs, the third-placed team plays against the sixth-placed team and the fourth-placed team plays against the fifth-placed team in the two-legged semi-finals. The winners of each semi-final then meet at Wembley, with the winner joining the two automatically promoted teams.

Currently, the three teams are bottom of the table after those 46 games being relegated. These teams are then replaced by the top 3 teams from EFL League Division 1.

Betting Picks on outright markets and individual matches are placed throughout the season, the games come thick and fast, so punters are never far away from an EFL Championship betting opportunity.
