Southampton Promotion Odds: Saints Evens for Championship promotion following Preston win

In-form Southampton are in to Evens to be promoted from the Championship following their 3-0 win over Preston at St Mary's.

A brace from Che Adams and another goal from fellow Scotland international Stuart Armstrong was enough to see the Saints pick up their third league win in a row, with Russell Martin's side moving to within five points of Ipswich Town at the top of the Championship table with a game in hand.

Southampton therefore find themselves in a promising position with four league games remaining, with the Saints currently priced at Evens to achieve promotion back to the Premier League at the first time of asking, 5/1 to finish in the top two and 16/1 to win the Championship title.

Relegated from the Premier League last season, Southampton made a slow start to this Championship campaign under new manager Russell Martin, losing four league matches in a row in September.

The Saints quickly found their feet, however, embarking on a record 25-match unbeaten run in all competitions between 30th September 2023 and 13th February 2024 to put themselves firmly in promotion contention.

A subsequent wobble in form following the end of their unbeaten run in a 3-1 loss to Bristol City at Ashton Gate had seemingly ended Southampton's hopes of automatic promotion, but with leading pack Ipswich, Leicester and Leeds having themselves stumbled in recent weeks the Saints are back in the race.

An automatic return to the Premier League now looks possible for Southampton ahead of their final four matches of this Championship campaign, but they do face tough trips to fellow promotion hopefuls Leicester and Leeds.
