Championship promotion odds - English Premier League awaits three teams. When it comes to finances in today's football, progressing to the English Premier League from the Championship is one of the most lucrative achievements for a club, providing an increase in revenues of at least £170m, and £290m if the club manages to stay there past the first season.

The English Premier League is two years into its new broadcasting deal and the financial rewards for its members are unmatched by any other football league.

Two teams that finish at the top of the Championship table gain automatic qualification to the English Premier League. The teams ranked from third to sixth place enter a playoff, with a two-legged semifinal and one-game final determining the 3rd entrant into the top flight. The playoff final, held traditionally at Wembley, is dubbed as the 'most expensive (valuable) game in football'.

This season, with four to five rounds of games left, depending on the team, we have a likely champion in Wolves, who are eight points ahead of second place Fulham. Cardiff City have one point less than Fulham but have a game in hand. Aston Villa are in the picture also, five points behind second place. The odds of clinching one of the two direct qualifying spots at the moment are:
