Watford 8/11 to be promoted
Watford are 8/11 to be promoted to the Premier League ahead of their Championship play-off final with Crystal Palace on May 27th.
Palace secured their place in the final with a late 2-O win over Brighton on Monday night and the Eagles are rated evens to go up.
Gianfranco Zola's Hornets, who finished 3rd in the league table, were 8/1 to be promoted at the start of the season while Ian Holloway's Palace were 28/1.
Sky Bet's Chris Spicer told Football Betting News: "Watford have been consistent and well-backed all season and came very close to automatic promotion on the last day of the season."
"Palace nearly blew their top six place but then managed to find the form when it mattered against Brighton. We're expecting a close battle at Wembley, but we've got to side with Watford for promotion."
