Burnley's Championship title odds shorten — alongside Watford and Sheffield United — as bookmakers back Vincent Kompany's side for promotion

Burnley were listed as outsiders for the Championship title when bookmakers initially posted their odds ahead of the 2022-23 campaign.

Punters could lap up odds as long as 14/1 for the Clarets when bookies first tested the water with their probabilities for England’s second tier.

Norwich City and Watford, who were relegated from the Premier League alongside Burnley, were enlisted as favourites for the crown, with number crunchers offering odds of around 6/1 and 7/1 respectively.

But it’s all change ahead of Friday’s clash at Vicarage Road where the Hornets and Vincent Kompany’s side — who are locked on four points apiece after the opening games — go head-to-head.

Here’s the division’s revised complexion, in reverse order, according to Sky Bet.
