There’s Only One Team Odds-On For Championship Promotion

Leeds' 1-0 win over Reading midweek moved them back into the automatic promotion places and made them the only team odds-on for a move up the Premier League.

Northern Irish duo Stuart Dallas and Bailey Peacock-Farrell are to thank Marcelo Bielsa's sides tight victory, as Dallas scored to put the Whites into the lead before youngster Peacock-Farrell saved a penalty in the last minute to secure the victory.

10/11 says Leeds gain automatic promotion, while they are 7/2 favourites for the title, slashed from 11/10 and 9/2.

Just a mere 9% of punters backed Leeds in the promotion market before the Reading game, however, following the victory 42% of bets have been on the Elland Road side.

Meanwhile, Norwich are currently top of the league, although, a 0-0 draw away at Hull stopped them from winning seven straight games and let the teams trailing close the gap.

The Canaries are best priced at 5/4 to gain promotion back to the Premier League.

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek: "Leeds 'won ugly' and it's the type of result that Champions get. It could well kick-start a return to the top of the table and will also instil huge confidence in Bailey Peacock-Farrell, who wouldn't even be playing right now if Jamal Blackman was fit, according to Marcelo Bielsa!"
