EFL Championship – Profit & Loss Stats

The purpose of our EFL Championship Profit & Loss stats tables is to see how much each team would have returned had you backed them to win every game with £10 level stakes. You'll be able to spot who has been providing the best value over the course of the campaign.

The table below ranks all 24 Championship sides based on profitability, with Number 1 being the most profitable.

Select the right tabs to see data based on ‘Overall‘ results (Home & Away form combined), ‘Home‘ results (home form only), and ‘Away‘ results (away form only). The data is updated daily.

We also provide P&L stats for the following leagues:


  • PD – The total number of ‘Matches Played’ during the season so far.
  • P/L – Total profit or loss if £10 was staked on this team to win every game.
  • ROI (Return on Investment) – Total profit or loss as a % of total stakes if £10 was staked on this team to win every game.

Important: If the stats on this page haven't updated, please clear your cache.


How Are the Profit & Loss Figures Calculated?

As mentioned earlier, the Profit & Loss (P/L) statistics are calculated as if you were to back each team to win every game with £10 stakes using odds from bet365. The data is then added together cumulatively throughout the season to give the total profit or loss each team would gave generated.

ROI is calculated by dividing the total Profit/Loss by the number of matches played and then converted into a percentage.

The EFL Championship

The EFL Championship is the second-highest level of football in England. 24 teams compete to get promoted to the best football league in the world, but only the two best teams can go straight up to the promised land.

Every team dreams of playing in the Premier League, an honour reserved for the 20 best teams in England. The next 24 ply their trade in what is arguably the best non-top division of football in the entire world.

Welcome to the EFL Championship!


EFL Championship – Key Stats

The EFL Championship, English football’s second tier, is one of the richest and most exciting football leagues in the world, despite being a non-top flight division. Over the years, there has been a great deal of action and many nail-biting moments, as well as records smashed and history made. 

Championship betting is an incredibly big business, but if you want to get involved in putting money behind your EFL Championship convictions, you should really pay heed to the importance of stats when betting.

Why Stats Help With Betting on EFL Championship

Statistical analysis helps to tell us what has happened before in the EFL Championship. Stats provide a neutral story that's 100% backed up by data, documenting true evidence of what has happened previously, and, based on this, what might happen in the future.

Be Informed

To be informed prior to your bet is a good thing. To let the bookie win isn't. To that end, there really is no better way to be informed than to brush up on the stats that are free to source for everyone.

Bookies Use Stats

If it comes down to Punters vs Bookmakers (which, if we're being totally honest, it does), then you should be using stats to assist you since that's exactly how bookies make their money. Their prices aren’t created by chance. The bookmakers use all of the historical data at their disposal to create the odds of each of the selections in their sportsbooks.
