Exciting Championship betting with Coral
The Championship is England's second tier division, just below the glitz and glamour of the Premier League, but it's arguably the most exciting, especially when it comes to betting with us at Coral. This incredible division produces some of the best sporting moments of each passing season, with the fight to avoid relegation to League One adding to the drama surrounding a battle for the Championship crown, automatic promotion places and those coveted play-off positions. After a thrilling three-way race to the title, it was Burnley who eventually came out on top with Middlesbrough just behind to claim the second automatic promotion. Brighton and Hove Albion had to make do with a play-off place, but lost in their semi-final with Sheffield Wednesday, who in turn were defeated by Hull City in the final. There's a great swathe of mid-table sides, including fallen giants such as Leeds United and Nottingham Forest. At the basement of this truly testing, yet rewarding, league Bolton Wanderers, Charlton Athletic and MK Dons will all be playing League One football next term, and will be replaced with Wigan Athletic, Burton Albion and Barnsley. From the Premier League, meanwhile, Newcastle United, Norwich City and Aston Villa will be aiming for an immediate return.

The Championship has cultivated a reputation as one of the most unpredictable competitions in football. Premier League dropouts are as likely to suffer another demotion as regain top-level status, as Wolves demonstrated this decade, while pre-season relegation favourites occasionally infiltrate the promotion places. Outright Championship betting markets are therefore some of the most enticing, volatile and value-rife around, with no lengthily-priced outsider discountable. Championship relegation betting odds provide a similar window for substantial profit, as the division lacks an accepted safety point like the 40-point barrier in the Premier League. In 2012/13, Peterborough discovered that not even 54 points from 46 games cements survival. Due to its ever-evolving cast list, the protagonists in The Championship change every season. Manchester City have vindicated Championship title betting odds most frequently, winning the second tier seven times, but almost certainly will not feature at that level in the foreseeable future. Leicester are the second most successful with six titles.Championship match betting is also attractive for long-shot backers, with the same form-book disobedience rife throughout the league. Opportunities to exploit tempting Championship match odds span longer than in the Premier League, with the season starting earlier, the play-offs prolonging it and several midweek rounds, each replete with in-play betting openings.
