Steve Freeth's EFL Championship betting update: Leicester City's title credentials questioned

bet365's Steve Freeth brings you up to date with all of the latest betting markets in the EFL Championship as the 2023/24 campaign gets set for its resumption following the final international break of the calendar year.

It's been a typically dramatic start to the 2023/24 season in the EFL Championship.

Leicester City had enjoyed a blistering return to the second-tier, establishing themselves as the huge odds-on favourites to bounce straight back to the big time before succumbing to back-to-back defeats for the first time under Enzo Maresca.

Could their promotion push be starting to simmer, and are 4/1 shots Leeds United and Southampton - in to 14/1 - a live danger to the Foxes title aspirations? 

Do Ipswich Town - one of the stories of the campaign to date - have the staying power to hold off the advances of the two recently relegated Premier League sides and maintain their outstanding run of form by backing up their current 8/13 promotion credentials?

There are so many questions to be answered over the coming months, at both the top and bottom of the Championship, and our man Steve Freeth does his best to run through where the betting value could be found in the second-tier outright markets.

Just six points separate sixth and 16th place, with as many as 12 teams hoping to gate-crash the top six come the end of the season... are 13/2 hopes Norwich City - one of the favourites for promotion this term - one of those sides after producing a stunning fightback to end their dismal run of form prior to the break?

And what about the Top Goalscorer market... 

Could this be the campaign that a non-traditional striker scoops the coveted gong with the likes of Sammie Szmodics (8/1) and Jack Clarke (12/1) so high up in the betting, or will the 10/3 favourite Adam Armstrong continue to deliver the goods for Southampton on the back of his lively start in front of goal?

It promises to be a pulsating race to the finish, with twists and turns aplenty on all fronts.

All odds displayed were correct at the time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.
