Nottingham Forest Favourite to Win the Championship Without West Brom & Newcastle

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 8, 2009) - Online football betting bookmaker Victor Chandler has released prices on who will win the Championship without West Brom and Newcastle.

Nottingham Forest, currently in third place in the league are Victor Chandler's 9/2 favourites in a highly competitive market, followed by Middlesbrough at 5/1 with Leicester, Cardiff & Sheff Utd all available at 7/1. Further down in the market Blackpool, currently sitting sixth, only three points behind Forest are priced at 20/1.

Victor Chandler spokesman Neal Wilkins commented "West Brom and Newcastle are threatening to open up a gap in the Championship, but with only seven points separating the next 11 teams we thought a market without the top two would prove popular with the fans. Nottingham Forest are on a great run and will be a tough team to catch, 9/2 looks a very fair price."

Chandler's have another reason to hope Nottingham Forest fail to catch the top two in the league. Chairman Victor Chandler has offered to pay the season ticket's of fans should the team, who are sponsored by the bookmaker, win the Championship. An offer that is estimated will cost Pounds Sterling 6m should it happen.
