League Championship – Season winner picks, betting tips and preview 2010-11

League Championship BettingThe most exciting and unpredictable football leagues kicks off today as the 2010-11 English League Championship season begins. Who will claim the title? Read our 2010-11 season preview as we aim to find the best long term tips for your betting needs.

Last season, perhaps predictably newly relegated from the premiership, Newcastle United and West Bromwich Albion made quick returns out of the Championship. They were followed up by Blackpool, who stunned everyone by sneaking into the playoffs to then get a miracle promotion. Usually the teams that come down go back up, but this year the promotion battle has a potential to all be different as newly relegated Hull and Portsmouth are close to bankruptcy and are getting rid of players faster than Bonus Riders gives bonuses.

All the sites previews and tips for the 2010-11 English League Championship are going to back Gordan Strachan’s big spending Middlesbrough and relegated Burnley for the title, but we are going to go another route.

We Tip Bristol City at 19.0 to Win outright at William Hill
A new manager in Steve Coppell , who comes armed with an exemplary record in the lower leagues, two new big centre backs in Hunt and Cisse with premiership experience and the England goalkeeper; this is looking like it could be Bristol City’s year. If David James can stay fit in between the sticks and highly rated Nicky Maynard keeps scoring up front, the 19 William Hill are offering seems tremendously generous.

We Tip Nottingham Forest 8 to win outright at William Hill
Heartbreak for Nottingham Forest last year as a great start slowly faded and culminated with a semi final loss. Nottingham is hoping that this year, they can go a step further and bring the former European Champions to the summit that is the Premiership. Major signing of the summer must be considered silky smooth Radoslaw Majewski, who made his move permanent after a loan spell last season. Dexter Blackstock and Rob Earnshaw have plenty of goals between them. Lewis McGugan is a terrific prospect and Kevin Davies, a rock at the back. They have a young squad, and manager Billy Davies will hope, they are now a little more experienced than last year.

We Tip Queens Park Rangers 8 to win outright at William Hill
Billionaire owners and a chairman that changes managers more often than most men change shirts. QPR have the money, history and now a manager to finally give them Premiership football. Manager Neil Warnock is the man opponents and referees love to hate, but he does entertain the media and more importantly knows how to build a team. The signings of young midfield maestro Abel Tarabat and experienced campaigners Paddy Kenny, Shaun Derry and Clint Hill, are good additions adding to quality already at the club such as Lee Cook, Heidar Helguson, Alejandro Faurlin and Akos Buszaky.
