Key stats for the Championship
In the 2014/15 Championship season there was 1474 goals scored in 552 games, an average of 2.67 per game. That is slightly up from the year before at 2.6 goals.
There was quite an even spread when it came to wins in the division. Of all the 552 games played 41% were home wins, 29% were draws and 30% were away games. This stat shows that there is quite a high chance of any team winning away from home. One must be careful when it comes to putting on a bet.
When it comes to goals scored in the Championship, two goals were scored 23.9% of the time and three goals were scored 22.1% of the time. To place a bet of over 1.5 and over 2.5 goals a game might be a good shout.
What to know before betting on the Championship
Before the season kicks off one should research which teams have been relegated from the Premier League. If these teams keep the majority of their star players they will be pre-season favourites.
Newcastle, QPR and Norwich all managed to get relegated and then get promoted the following year. The teams who have big budgets and wage bills in comparison to other to Championship sides will be able to attract the best Championship players and some Premier League players depending on managers, wages etc.
The Championship starts in early August and consists of 24 teams. It is structured like any other league, where each team will play every side twice (home and away). The bottom three sides will be relegated to League one at the end of the season. The top two teams in the Championship will be automatically promoted to the Premier League, with the first placed side winning the Championship title. Teams placed 3rd to 6th will go into a two-legged play-off. The two winners will face off in the Promotion Play-off final held every year at Wembley Stadium. These three teams will replace the three teams relegated from the Premier League.
