Latest Odds In The Championship
Queens Park Rangers and Burnley’s Sky Bet Championship title odds continue to shorten after the division’s top two teams each registered another win on Saturday.
Favourites QPR came in from 6/5 to evens as they maintained their unbeaten record in the league with a 2-0 win over Barnsley at Loftus Road, although Burnley remain top on goal difference.
Seven of QPR’s eight league wins have come without conceding and that was a 13/8 chance before kick-off, while Charlie Austin’s price to be the division’s top scorer has come in from 9/1 to 11/2 having scored both goals.
Indeed, Austin’s 87th minute penalty secured one lucky punter a £250,000 windfall, as Sky Bet customer Ed Houghton became only the third Super 6 jackpot winner having correctly predicted six scores in the free-to-play online game.
Burnley have played a game more than Harry Redknapp’s men but they’re now 12/1 to win the title, having been 18/1 prior to their 2-1 win over Reading.
It was The Clarets’ fifth win on the bounce and it’s fair to say that they’re making a mockery of their pre-season odds of 80/1 for the title, while they’re now 4/1 for promotion having been 16/1 in August.
Elsewhere, Steve McClaren got off to a perfect start in his first official game in charge of Derby, guiding his new side to a 3-1 win over Leeds, ensuring their odds for a top-six finish shortened from 7/1 to 6/1.
Meanwhile, one of the games of the day on Saturday took place at Dean Court, where hosts Bournemouth defied odds of 28/1 to come back from a half-time deficit to beat Millwall.
The Cherries were two goals down after 10 minutes, at which stage Sky Bet offered in-play odds of 200/1 for Eddie Howe’s men to run out 5-2 winners, as they did amid a spirited second-half display.
