EFL Championship Betting Tips, Predictions & Free Bets
The Championship is the second tier of English football and is often considered as one of the most exciting leagues in the world.
Boasting a wealth of big clubs and excellent players, the division tends to be held in higher regard than almost every other second division in the world.
Despite being a tier below the Premier League, The Championship is still one of the most attending divisions in Europe and it attracts a global audience of millions, with many of the division’s bigger clubs still boasting international fanbases.
How to bet on the Championship
The Championship is one of the most popular leagues in Europe and as such, bookmakers will often offer a wide variety of different markets for the division. In fact, with most bookmakers it often only just becomes behind The Premier League itself when it comes to markets available.
As with most football divisions, the league attracts the usual kinds of bets that you would expect- singles bets, accumulators, both teams to score, and so on and so forth.
Games for the division are mostly played at the same time- 3:00 on a Saturday afternoon, but there is normally one early kick-off per week and occasionally a game on a Friday or a Monday night.

Championship bonus codes
Bonus codes are special offers made by bookmakers in order to attract new customers into using their services.
While the Premier League and some of Europe’s elite divisions tend to steal the attention from the bookmakers when it comes to bonus codes, there are still times when they promote these offers with a little more focus on the Championship.
With the division starting before The Premier League and also featuring a playoff system, the start and ends of the season can often be the best time to get Championship based bonus codes or special offers.
Championship free bets
With the idea of bonus codes and offers often being to attract new businesses, free bets are often just for existing customers and are often given out as either as a part of some sort of promotion or to reward a customer for staying loyal to the company.
While a lot of free bets may not be Championship specific, bookmakers will routinely offer a range of free bets geared towards football, and it is not uncommon for the televised Championship games to also receive some sort of price boosts or special offers.

Championship betting tips
In terms of participants, the Championship is one of the biggest divisions in Europe, which means that it hosts more games each week than most of the continent’s top divisions.
As a result, the Championship can prove to be quite a lucrative division to have a cheeky flutter on and it is worth knowing your way around the division if you are going to do so.
Like anything you are going to bet on, doing an ample amount of research should be your priority when it comes to betting on the Championship.
Having a good knowledge of a team’s form, the form of individual players, injuries and suspensions, and all also team’s head to head records will give you a good advantage when it comes to betting on the division.
The division is also notorious for being quite unpredictable, which means that having a bet on an outsider from time to time can often prove to be quite a shrewd move.
