Sky Bet Championship Promotion Race

23 September 2013

Sponsored by

Queens Park Rangers continue to shorten in the title betting with the Championship’s lead sponsor Sky Bet after extending their fine start with a win at Yeovil on Saturday afternoon.

A 75thminute Charlie Austin penalty was enough to see the Hoops rack up yet another 1-0 victory, their fifth in the last six league games, which sees them cut to 13/8 to win the league.  


Those shrewd with their stats could have backed such an outcome at 11/2, while Austin was 7/2 to open the scoring again, having previously also done so in their victory over Birmingham.


Austin’s former club Burnley have also had their promotion odds cut, coming in from 8/1 to 7/1 after recording an odds-defying 2-1 victory at Leeds, who have lengthened from 8/1 to 12/1 to be playing Premier League football next season.


Watford are considered QPR’s main contenders for top spot at 11/2 and strengthened their title case with a 5-1 win at Barnsley.


Nottingham Forest and Leicester follow at 10/1 after being held to 2-2 draws by Rovers and Blackpool respectively.
