Back Robbo’s boys with Sky Bet!

25 June 2015

Sky Bet have named the Dons slight favourites to win their first-ever Sky Bet Championship fixture!

Karl Robinson’s men, who are priced at 1/8 to avoid the drop in their inaugural season in the second tier, are 6/4 to beat Rotherham United at the AESSEAL New York Stadium on Saturday 8th August.

Meanwhile, Sky Bet have Hull City as their front-runners for immediate promotion back to the Premier League in the 2015/16 Sky Bet Championship season.
 
Steve Bruce’s men are currently 13/2 favourites to finish top of the Championship and 9/4 to win back their Premier League status at the first time of asking.
 
Hull host Yorkshire club Huddersfield Town on the opening weekend of the season and are odds on favourites (4/7) to get their season off to a winning start.
 
Burnley and Derby County are joint 2nd favourites for the title at 8/1, ahead of losing Play-Off Finalists Middlesbrough (9/1) and Brentford, QPR and Wolves (11/1).
 
Burnley, who finished two points behind Hull in last season’s Premier League standings, face a tough trip to Leeds United on the opening day of the season.
 
Sky Bet are expecting a tight game with Sean Dyche’s men very slight favourites at 7/5, and a Leeds win at 7/4.
 
Derby County missed out on a shot of the Play-Offs on the last day of the season and travel to Bolton Wanderers on the opening day.
 
Derby are 11/8 favourites to get their season off to a winning start.
 
Bristol City - promoted as Champions from Sky Bet League 1 last season – are an 18/1 shot to repeat the feat in the Sky Bet Championship and are 11/2 to be promoted.
 
They travel to Sheffield Wednesday on the opening day, where Stuart Gray’s replacement will be taking charge of his first competitive game.
 
City are 2/1 to win, with Wednesday at 6/5 and the draw at 12/5.
 
Of the teams who may find themselves at the wrong end of the table, Sky Bet make Rotherham United (4/9), Charlton Athletic (4/11) and Bolton Wanderers (2/7) the least likely to stay up next May.
 
Charlton begin an incredibly tough August - reflected in the fact that the London club are favourites to be bottom on September 1 at 13/2 - with a fixture against QPR.
 
QPR are 11/8 favourites, with Charlton 7/4 to take the three points.
 
Newly promoted Preston North End are, along with the Dons, priced at 1/8 to avoid relegation.
 
The League 1 play-off winners begin their campaign at home to Championship play-off finalists Middlesbrough and although they suffered contrasting fortunes at Wembley in May, Boro are 6/4 favourites for an opening day victory.
 
All odds are subject to change.
