Ladbrokes Odds On Championship.

Recommended Posts


There's a long way to go in terms of squad building. Queen of the South have lost 5 or 6 of this season's squad, so how can they be 4/1 with Falkirk at 16s? We've not finished announcing who is leaving (possibly?), Newco have a massive rebuilding job, Raith have a new manager, and Dumbarton are bound to be right up there because Ginger Prick has signed a couple of defenders (that he'd probably wanted to sign for Stranraer) already and that defence was shambolic under Ian Murray last season zzzzzzzzzz.

Typo - QOS are 14/1

Stop slagging Gingers.

Thought 4/1 was shocking odds.

10/3 on us is pretty poor aswell but that'll go up as Rangers and Hibs sign players through the summer and also because Rangers will be heavily backed.

What were we that year?

Feck knows - my brain and liver took such a hammering that season that I'm sure scars could easily be traced back to that year.

I just know that the celebrations when we won the league were funded for weeks on the back of that win.

Where are you getting the budget figures from for us or other clubs ?

Common sense. None of the clubs below us have wealthy backers. We have a relatively large parachute payment and season ticket sales are going well, we have sold more than those clubs behind us.

You think the bookies have it wrong?

You forgot to add a board whose pockets are so deep King Kong couldn't reach the small change so the bookies might readjust as the close season progresses.

3rd biggest budget = 3rd favourite.

Looks about right to me.

I will start to believe that when the accountant has left,all our board have done is cut cut cut ,and would imagine when everybody has been 50%ed they wont invest anything as usual,all about books looking good not team ,squad or looking further than tomorrow

20/1 3rd fav for relegation according to Dougie Vipond on the "Bubble Didnae Burst" video

We were 33/1 with Hills after pummelling Ayr Utd 1-1 in the opening game of the season; I remember seeing 33s on the board in the Hills shop outside Glasgow Central station and thinking it must be a mistake.

Dare say the odds were cut after we pumped Raith 6-0 in Kirkcaldy in the second game.

Just looked on Oddschecker:

Best prices to win the league, 1/3 the odds to finish in top 2

Q.o.S 25/1

Falkirk 28/1

Bigger the rest.

Our best price is a miserable 10/3 with the bookies that have priced up the league so far.

The board don't invest anything no, they aren't hugely wealthy individuals, they're just local businessman.

As a club spend what comes in. Less comes in, we cut and spend less. By my reckoning we will have the 3rd biggest income in the Championship this season, ergo 3rd biggest budget

Simple stuff really!
