Update: 13.01.21

We’ve now reached the half-way point in the 2020/21 Championship campaign and Norwich City reign supreme at the summit of the division, the Canaries enjoying a four-point lead over second-placed Swansea City as things stand. Daniel Farke’s men brushed aside Coventry City to the tune of 2-0 in the FA Cup last weekend and they will be eager to return to league duty and continue their slow march towards promotion.

To be fair, Norwich City’s recent league form hasn’t been too much to write home about with Farke’s side having won just one of their last three Championship outings, however prior to this they had won five on the bounce and the bookmakers go 11/8 that they finish the season in pole position.

Brentford have also been enjoying some excellent form throughout the season and the West London outfit sit in fourth position with a game-in-hand over all the sides above them in the division. The Bees are second-favourites to win the Championship title with most firms going a general 11/4 that the trophy ends up with Thomas Frank’s men.

AFC Bournemouth have been in the upper echelons of the league table since the start of the campaign and they are a 10/3 punt to lift the Championship trophy while current second-placed Swansea City aren’t expected to last the pace, the Swans a general 10/1 shot to finish in pole position.

Norwich City’s impressive form since the start of the season has been enough to lift them into pole position in the Championship table. The Canaries finished at the foot of the Premier League at the end of the 2019/20 campaign, however as things stand they appear to have a good chance of winning automatic promotion straight back up to the top flight at the first time of asking. Daniel Farke’s men sit four points clear at the summit of the division and the bookmakers go a general 11/8 that they win the Championship trophy and send themselves straight back into the Premier League.

In fairness it hasn’t all been plain sailing for the East Anglian outfit given that they have dropped points in nine of their twenty-three league outings thus far, however the Championship is always a hugely competitive division and it’s almost certain that there will be many more stumbles before the season draws to a close.

For much of the campaign, AFC Bournemouth have been the main rivals for Norwich City in the battle to finish in pole position and while the south-coast outfit currently sit in third position behind second-placed Swansea City, they do enjoy a game-in-hand over the Swans. The Cherries are 11/4 for the Championship title, the same odds as Brentford who beat them to the tune of 2-1 in their last league outing.

Swansea City currently sit in second position in the Championship table and the South Wales outfit are next in the betting at 10/1 for the league trophy, ahead of Watford who are 14/1 to make an immediate return back to the Premier League following their relegation at the end of last season.
