Leeds United now favourites to reach Premier League

Posted on: 12th August 2018

The season is still in its infancy although the bookmakers have sat up and taken notice of Leeds United’s flying start to the campaign under Marcelo Bielsa.

A 3-1 win over Stoke was followed by a 4-1 triumph against Derby, with the Argentine wasting little time in getting his squad fired up for the season and they are now favourites on the Championship outright market.

William Hill make them their 9/2 favourites to win the title, with Kemar Roofe scoring twice at Pride Park on Saturday as the Rams were put to the sword.

Paddy Power go 2/1 that we see Leeds United promoted this season, with their high pressing and counter-attacking impressive against a Derby side that fell well short of the required standard.

Bielsa won’t be getting carried away and Middlesbrough are the front runners although Tony Pulis’ side have played an extra game and sit pretty with seven points.

Nottingham Forest, West Brom and Brentford might also have a say in the automatic promotion race, although Frank Lampard will be concerned about his Derby team after such a big wobble and questions have to be asked about the defensive organisation within the ranks.
