Championship Betting Tips: The Best Bets for the 2023/24 Season

The 2023/24 Championship season gets underway in early August with 24 teams dreaming of winning promotion to the Premier League.

Leicester City are the favourites on the best football betting sites to win the title as they strive to make an immediate return to the top flight.

Fellow relegated clubs Leeds United and Southampton are also towards the head of the market and it would be no surprise to see at least one of the trio win promotion.

Read on we take a closer look at the upcoming season in the Championship and offer our best bets for the season ahead.


  • Blackburn can continue their progression.
  • Rotherham set to struggle.
  • Armstrong can shine in the second tier.

Rovers Eyeing a Top Six Spot

Blackburn Rovers spent most of last season inside the top six before missing out on a play-off position on goal difference.

They have offset the loss of a couple of influential players this summer with three new signings and more transfer dealings are expected before the end of August.

Rovers have some excellent players at their disposal, but the addition of a 15-20 goal a season striker would make a massive difference to their promotion hopes.

Odds of 4/1 on this list of UK betting sites for a top six finish will look generous if the club can put the finishing touches to Jon Dahl Tomasson’s squad.

Rotherham Face Tough Relegation Battle

Rotherham United have bounced between the Championship and League One over the past few years and another return to the third-tier is on the cards.

They were fortunate to escape relegation last term and look a banker bet at odds of 2/1 on several new betting sites to finish in the bottom three this season.

The Millers have lost several influential players and their incoming transfer business has been largely underwhelming this summer.

With the Championship line-up looking stronger than it did last season, Rotherham look set to endure another difficult campaign

Armstrong Can Fire Saints to Promotion

Adam Armstrong sparkled during his last campaign in the Championship, netting 28 goals in 40 league appearances for Blackburn.

His efforts earned him a move to Southampton, but he struggled to produce the same level of form in the Premier League.

Armstrong is a best priced 16/1 on numerous betting apps to be the Championship’s top scorer this season and he could be good each-way value.

Saints are eager to win back their top flight status and new manager Russell Martin’s style of play should suit Armstrong down to the ground.
