England Championship Profit & Loss Stats

The purpose of our England 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 can then spot, at a glance, who has been providing the best value over the course of the campaign.

The table below ranks all 24 Championship sides based on profitability (#1 being most profitable).

You can select (using the 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 every day.

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

Key

  • 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 then 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 (Return On Investment) is calculated by dividing the total Profit/Loss by the number of matches played and then converted into a percentage.

Betting on the EFL Championship: Odds, Tips & Predictions

Skybet Championship

People all over the world gather in front of screens as soon as Saturday rolls around. For most, this time is all about the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga or Serie A. Some turn on the TV to watch Neymar run riot for PSG, but most tend to stick to the crème-de-la-crème of the English game, in other words the Premier League.

City, Chelsea, United and company do deliver fantastically entertaining football, but as can be seen this season, one team often runs away with the title. Liverpool is absolutely amazing to watch, the entertainment is simply from another planet, but for us punters, Premier League has maybe not been the most interesting league this year.

If you find yourself being among those football fans who are after a new challenge, then we would wholeheartedly recommend the Championship. The EFL Championship is the top-level of the English Football League, and every year, three teams are promoted up to the Premier League. The EFL Championship is an unpredictable league with a whole host of interesting, inspiring and unbelievable stories and betting on the Championship is as exciting as betting comes.

As can be seen from the table above, Leeds United is currently the number one favourite to gain promotion, but they are being heavily challenged by West Brom and Fulham. The two teams that end their season in spot number 1 and 2 get automatically promoted to the Premier League, whilst place 3-6 advance to the playoffs. At the time of writing, West Brom is leading the league and Leeds are a point behind.

The interesting thing about the Championship for us punters is the fact that it is so unpredictable. Sure, Leeds, West Brom and Fulham were heavy favourites going into the season, but the same could have been said for recent Premier League teams like Huddersfield and Stoke. However, they have both faltered massively and are much closer to relegation than they are to promotion. Betting on the Championship is not easy, but it can be very rewarding for those willing to gather information and stay up-to-date on trends and stats.

Promotion goes to the two first-placed teams, and at the moment, Leeds United and West Brom are leading the way. Leeds were in amongst the top-two this time last season as well, but stumbled right before the finish line and ended up losing to Derby in the playoffs, meaning that leading the way at this stage is no guarantee.

After the two best teams have gotten their promotion at the end of the 46-game season, the teams place in 3rd down to 6th get ready for the playoffs. The playoffs consist of tow semi finals played over two legs (home and away), and one final played at Wembley where the winner gets to celebrate promotion whilst the loser gets ready for yet another long season in England’s second tier.

Whenever someone gets promoted, someone else has to be relegated, that’s just a sad fact of life, at least in football. This year, Luton, Barnsley and Charlton are in real trouble. Luton might be a rather unfamiliar name to younger fans, but they’re a very familiar name to those who’ve been around a little while. Luton spent some time out of the football league, but most football fans would argue that they belong in the Championship. They currently find themselves at the bottom of the table however, and they now have some real work to do if they are to survive.

But Luton have been on a pretty good run lately and are looking like they might indeed pull a rabbit out of the hat. Therefore, we would encourage people to keep an eye on Middlesbrough. Middlesbrough are a classic JoJo-team with a tendency to bounce between the Premier League and the Championship, but the football they have shown this season belongs in League One. Jonathan Woodgate needs to steady the ship fast if Middlesbrough – who many expected to fight in the other end of the table before the start of the season – are to still be playing Championship football next season.

EFL Championship Tips & Predictions

Yes, the Championship is a difficult league to figure out thanks to the amount of teams and the amount of games, but it is not impossible. A bet on Leeds United to be in amongst the top-6 looks as good now as it did back in August, but the same cannot be said for Stoke, Middlesbrough or Huddersfield.

This relative unpredictability can be frustrating for some, but it can also be quite rewarding. Because teams get promoted into, and relegated down to the Championship, every season presents a new challenge where you as a punter have to figure out just how much a former Premier League team will suffer after having lost three of their biggest stars after relegation, or how good a young striker might be for a newly promoted team.

If you are going to spend time and money on Championship betting, it is essential to be aware of stats, trends and history. You could have simply seen the odds for Leeds to go up and placed your bet, but did you know that the Bielsa-led team were leading the pack the whole of last season only to implode at the end? That might happen again, we are, after all, talking about a very thin squad playing one of the longest and most tiresome seasons in the world of football.

But we do believe that Leeds will make it this season, just like we believe that Middlesbrough could finally be in big trouble. Woodgate has not been the saviour he was supposed to be, the team are in horrible form and they look like all confidence and belief is long gone. One potentially smart tip could be for Middlesbrough to go down. ‘Boro are still viewed as a Premier League side by many, but they are truly looking awful and a bet on them to end up in the bottom-three might yield some nice winnings.

Teams to Avoid

Teams to Avoid

Betting on the teams to be promoted or the teams to finish in the playoffs can be smart, but we would not recommend that you base your pick on the name of the team. That can be done in the Premier League as you can be pretty sure that teams like Chelsea and Manchester City will finish in the top-6, but the Championship is markedly different.

Because of the money teams like Chelsea and City have, you can be pretty sure that they will be up there, even during a “bad” season. In the Championship, teams tend to bounce around a whole lot more from season to season. Huddersfield and Stoke are two of the bigger names in the league and they were both expected to put the parachute payments that come with relegation to good use and bounce straight back. As things stand, both teams are bouncing in the wrong direction and might soon find themselves slipping around in the mud of third tier football.

Avoid any big-money bets before the season starts. The Championship season is so unpredictable and so physical, that making a bombastic declaration in the form of a bet before the season has even started, is generally considered a bad idea. Instead, we recommend playing on an outsider with some interesting signings (for a relatively small sum), or play as you go along. A late bet on Bristol City to sneak into the playoffs is the type of bet that might indeed pay off nicely, and in the worst case you simply lose a relatively small bet.

 

EFL Championship Structure

Unlike the Premier League, the Championship consists of 24 teams. This is 4 more than the top division, and it means that the Championship season lasts for 46 games. At the end of the season, the top two teams are directly promoted to the Premier League ahead of next season, whilst the teams placed 3-6 play semi-finals and then a final in order to determine the third and final team to earn promotion. In other words, a team can spend the whole season in or around 10th place only to go on a run and finish 6th. If the run continues, they may find themselves in the Premier League for the next season.

The playoff structure is exciting and different, but we do not find this structure in place at the other end of the table. The relegation rules are very simple: finish in the bottom three and you go down. Budgets tend to be more evenly divided in the Championship and star players are harder to sign, meaning that top teams often go on a bad run that never seems to stop. Middlesbrough and Stoke are the most recent examples of good teams not capable of living up to expectations in the Championship.

 

A History of the Championship

championship stats

The older generations tend to refer to the Championship as the First Division, First Division here meaning second tier. The reason for that is that the Championship didn’t get its current name until the 2004 season, and until that point, the league was known as the First Division.

The first ever Championship winner was Sunderland FC back in 2004/05. Sunderland finished the season with 94 points and got promoted together with Wigan and West Ham. West Ham was the first ever team to win the new playoff format.

Sunderland and West Ham have not been regular participants since the first season, seeing as they have spent the majority of their time in the Premier League. Wigan, on the other hand, has been a fairly regular customer. Sure, they spent some time in the Premier League as well as in League One, but the EFL Championship has largely been Wigan’s home.

Teams like Charlton, Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Millwall are other teams that have become Championship regulars, but there is one team that has been the very definition of second-tier football since 2004, and that team is Leeds United. This would have been a massive surprise to anyone before the 2003/04 season, but everything that has happened since has solidified Leeds United as the arch-Championship side. Marcelo Bielsa might finally be capable of altering this, which is one good reason to pay attention to the Championship this season.

  • Nottingham Forest and arch-rival Derby County have one interesting thing in common: together they hold the record for being in the Championship the longest.
