  • Wolves

Odds for Wolves to go up range from 1/1000 to 1/50, the latter odds are offered by Betway. Wolves have been unstoppable this season, having picked up 61 points already - that's 12 more than second placed Derby County. It would take nothing short of a miracle (or disaster, depending how you look at it) for them to slip out of the promotion spots.

  •  Derby County

The best odds you can find on Derby County to get promoted are 11/8 with Bet365. They are currently in second place; 12 points behind league leaders Wolves and 2 above third placed Cardiff City. Their odds shortened slightly after the news that Gary Rowett, their manager, will stay after speculation had him linked to the vacant position at Stoke.

  • Bristol City

This is where the bookies' odds break from the league rankings, with Bristol City sitting fourth in the table but third favourites to be promoted. The Robins' odds were slashed after an impressive performance against Man City, narrowly losing 2-1 in the Carabao Cup. 

The best odds for Bristol City to be promoted are with SkyBet at 2/1.

They had knocked Manchester United out of the cup during the quater-final stage. Perhaps, their ability to perform in a knockout environment, have people convinced that they would be favourites should they reach the Championship play offs. The best odds for Bristol City to be promoted are with SkyBet at 2/1

  • Aston Villa

Aston Villa are currently in fifth place, three points behind Bristol City and Cardiff City. There are multiple bookies offering the same odds on Aston Villa to be promoted at 11/4. Steve Bruce's side are eyeing the play-offs this year and have been linked to Leicester City duo Leonardo Ulloa and Daniel Amartey.

  • Cardiff City 

Cardiff City are currently third in the table with 47 points but despite this bookies have them ranked as fifth favourites to go up. The best odds for Cardiff City to be promoted is with SkyBet at 3/1. 

"We are that thin on the ground and we need to get 18 players on the team sheet, I honestly don't know how," said Warnock.

The reason for the discrepancy between these odds and their current league position is down to a poor run of form and a series of injuries. With just three losses in 22 league games, the Bluebirds headed into the holiday period full of optimism. But since then Warnock's men have suffered four consecutive defeats. Their huge roster of injuries has been highlighted as the major reason for this downturn in form. "We are that thin on the ground and we need to get 18 players on the team sheet, I honestly don't know how," said Warnock after his side's FA Cup tie.

  • Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough are currently eighth with 41 points but a good run of form have placed them as sixth favourites to be promoted. The best odds you can find for The Boro to be promoted are 9/2 with Betfair and Paddy Power.

  • Sheffield United 

The Blades can be found at 6/1 to be promoted with multiple bookies. They are currently seventh in the table with 42 points.

All odds were correct at time of writing: 11AM GMT, Wednesday, 10/01/2018
