Sky Bet - Opening Day betting preview

18 June 2014

Back the Millers at 4/1...

Following the announcement of the Sky Bet Football League fixtures today, league sponsor Sky Bet is on the mark with match prices for the opening day clashes.

Last season’s defeated Play-Off finalists Derby County go in to their opening fixture as strong favourites (4/7) as they host newly promoted Rotherham United (4/1), while recently relegated Cardiff City and Fulham have tough starts with away trips and both are odds against to start with a win. 

Last year’s Sky Bet League 1 Champions Wolverhampton Wanderers will host relegated Norwich City and a draw at 23/10 looks attractive, while fellow promoted team Brentford have a London derby against Charlton Athletic at Griffin Park, with the Bees priced at 11/10 to prosper on day one.

Not only are Sky Bet the first place to get your bets on, they are also offering enhanced accumulators and if you open an account with Sky Bet, you get a £30 free bet and (club name) will benefit with a share of revenue.
