The odds for the 2010/11 npower Championship are up and Leeds United are 16/1 to win the title with bookmakers Bet365. The Whites are ranked equal with Ipswich and Bristol City, just behind Leicester City at 14/1.

Bet365’s favourites for 2010/11 are Nottingham Forest at 15/2. They’re followed by Queen’s Park Rangers at 8/1 with Burnley and Middlesbrough at 9/1. Also in front of Leeds are Cardiff City and Reading, with odds on them winning the title at 12/1.

The odds for the 2010-11 Championship are not dissimilar from what you’d get on the favourites at the Grand National, showing just how unsure the bookmakers are ahead of the new season. Although Nottingham Forest are favourites at 15/2, this is hardly an odds-on certainty, and with Leeds ranked not too far behind at 16/1 (with no less than seven teams between the two), the bookmakers are covering there backs for any eventuality.
