Middlesbrough 5/1 to win the Championship title this season
Market: Middlesbrough to win the title
Odds: 5/1 @ William Hill
Championship side Middlesbrough are being tipped to win the title this campaign, with manager Aitor Karanka desperate to atone for last season’s failure in the playoffs. Boro finished fourth in the table in 2014/15, just four points off an automatic promotion place. They lost 2-0 in the playoff final to Norwich City, and have strengthened the side this summer to ensure they don’t fall short again.
They are sure to have stiff competition, however, with the likes of Derby County, Wolverhampton Wanderers, as well as newly-relegated Queens Park Rangers and Hull City. As a result, Middlesbrough have a difficult task to finish top of the pack, but their progression made under Karanka in such a short time suggests they can finish ahead of the rest come May.
Middlesbrough’s defensive record in the Championship was a particular highlight, and gives them strong foundations to build on. As a result, William Hill are giving odds of 5/1 for the Riverside outfit to win the Championship title this season. There’s 46 games for them to navigate through, however, so it won’t be easy.
