Derby County cut from 100/1 into 20/1 for promotion

They are the most backed team in the last seven days

Derby County are one of the form teams of the Championship at the moment. Having hit the ground running since the restart of the Championship, they have been cut to as short as 20/1 to be promoted to the Premier League.

Before the restart, they were a massive 100/1.

Punters have been piling into Derby, with some oddschecker users holding some fancy priced bet-slips in the last eleven days.

They are the most backed team on oddschecker in the last seven days, taking 33% of all bets on the market. This is a huge share of the market given their price.

A standout 33/1 is still available on the Rams with one firm, which will be quick to go should they get another three points against Preston this evening.

Their amazing upturn in form since the turn of the year has seen them fly up the table, now sitting in ninth.

They are just four points off sixth place, with a game in hand tonight which if they win, will see them rise up to seventh position.

Only Wigan and Brentford have gained more points in 2020 then Derby, who have won 8 of their 14 games this year.

There must be a real sense of belief around the Derby training ground that they could break into the top six by the end of the season.

However, they do have a tough run-in, which includes West Brom, Brentford and Leeds.

But, they must have the utmost confidence they can beat anyone in the league by the way they have restarted the season, so there is every chance they could continue their incredible charge for a play-off spot.

It is extremely tight in the table, with Bristol City sitting in twelfth still with a chance of promotion.

There will be plenty of twists and turns during the run-in but no one comes into the race in better form than Derby. Phillip Cocu’s men have a great chance of promotion if they continue their sensational form.
