Derby County 8/11 to earn promotion to the Premier League this season
Market: Derby to earn promotion
Odds: 8/11 @ Ladbrokes
Championship pacesetters Derby County look in inspired form in the league this season, with the Rams sitting at the summit four points better off than this time last season. Despite missing out in the playoff final to Queens Park Rangers in the summer, Steve McClaren’s side have rectified their errors and look on course to earn automatic promotion to avoid the potential agony of playoffs again.
County have only lost two games in their last 14, and are being backed by Ladbrokes with odds of 8/11 to earn promotion through any means necessary. While Derby are top of the table, a top-two finish is all they need to get back into the Premier League, and with how well they’ve started the season, many believe they are destined for promotion.
Bournemouth and Middlesbrough are only one point behind the Championship leaders this season, and could well provide competition for the coveted top-two places. Last season, Derby finish 3rd with 85 points, which would have earned them automatic promotion in three of the last six seasons. They are hoping not to leave it to chance this time around, and go up with the Championship title.
