The race to gain promotion to the Premier League is now in full swing, with a number of sides still harbouring realistic hopes of clinching promotion this season. In fact, teams as far down as 14th place, or perhaps even lower, have genuine chances of reaching at least the playoff places.
On this page, we’ll be taking a close look at several teams’ odds of grabbing promotion from the Championship in the 2021/22 season. We’ll also take a look at the implied odds, plus we’ll be giving you our opinion on the best bet you can make.
Latest odds on 2021/22 Championship promotion
Fulham currently sit atop the Championship and the bookies have decided that they’re almost certain to clinch promotion this season. We’d have to agree with them, although we’re sceptical that the title race is already over, as some people seem to believe.
Bournemouth are also highly fancied to clinch promotion, although their odds are far higher than Fulham’s. Other teams that could conceivably be in the mix come the end of the season include Sheffield United, Blackburn and QPR.
Check out the odds of promotion for several Championship teams below:
- Fulham – 1/50 with bet365
- Bournemouth – 1/6 with bet365
- Sheffield United – 13/5 with bet365
- Middlesbrough – 11/4 with bet365
- Blackburn – 5/1 with bet365
- WBA – 11/2 with bet365
- QPR – 13/2 with bet365
- Nottingham Forest – 9/1 with bet365
- Coventry – 11/1 with bet365
- Huddersfield – 12/1 with bet365
- Luton – 12/1 with bet365
- Stoke – 16/1 with bet365
- Millwall – 28/1 with bet365
- Swansea – 66/1 with bet365
- Preston NE – 80/1 with bet365
All other Championship teams have odds of over 150/1 or higher to gain promotion this year.

2021/22 Championship promotion: Fulham huge favourites with bookies
The obvious bet here would be Fulham, as they’re now looking pretty sure of gaining automatic promotion. However, the odds of 1/50 make a bet all but pointless. Bournemouth’s odds really don’t appeal either.
Instead, we’ll have to look for value further down the league – for a team that has a decent chance of promotion but also has attractive odds. Sheffield United fit the bill nicely, with a 27.8% chance of promotion and odds of 13/5.
However, the bet we’re going to recommend is Huddersfield to get promoted to the Premier League. They’ll need to do it via the playoffs, which can be something of a lottery, but their form is decent at the moment, and their odds of 12/1 are exceptionally appealing.
