Queens Park Rangers have been made seventh favourite to lift the Coca Cola Championship next season.

Skybet have taken stock of QPR`s abject season and rethought last years predictions of favourites to sit behind a plethora of Championship talent next season.

Newcastle (9/2) and Middlesbrough (6/1) are two of the favourites as the Championship line-up was confirmed earlier today - and West Bromwich Albion are also sixes to repeat their feat at Loftus Road two years ago and lift the crown.

Below them are the aspiring Ipswich Town (10/1), rejuvenated under the guidance of former Manchester United and Celtic player Roy Keane - with defeated playoff sides Sheffield United and Reading both at twelves.

Then come Queens Park Rangers with 14/1, the bookies evidently reluctant to push them into the higher echelons until they see a new face installed and the colour of Mr Briatore`s cheque book.

Rangers are also 5/1 to win promotion outright - while these are more realistic odds than last season, do they reflect the situation at Loftus Road at present?

I think fives are worth a punt - who knows!

Aaaahhh! Well, at least we're not firm favourites - and I guess it's better than the last few years, when we were firm favourites for relegation!

Hey Sandy! I too like the idea of being the dark horse this year...

So that's mid table nothingness again? Glad to see that your owners are splashing the cash around well.

That's exactly the kind of comment that gives us a bad reputation in the press - we are not splashing the cash around whatsoever, we are securing our financial future by not doing a Chelsea or what have you. I think our owners should be praised for that not derided.

With a decent manager at the helm fives is indeed worth a punt.

I feel that those odds are far more realistic, I like the 5-1 against promotion bit. Newcatsle and M'boro are typical of the bookies, big names, so automatically short prices. For me, the smoggies are going to be a much bigger threat than the skunks who need to rebuild from the ground up. WBA will be threeabouts but still lack the goalscoring threat they had until they let Kevin Phillips leave. Ipswich could be interesting, but I worry about the bottler who's in charge, Reading look destined for a period of decline now that Coppell has gone. Sheff Utd will still be angry bullies who will moan about injustice etc so cannot be ruled out of the race and PNE will still be giants in physical terms and will have to be dealt with. Brizzle will start going backwards, but the Swans will be a nuisance, Cardiff though, I fear for. I think their time has come and gone and the PL vultures will pick off the cream of their players. As for the promoted sides, Leicester will be fine, potentially awkward, but not a real promotion threat, P'boro will be OK, nothing else, Scunny will struggle but may well stay up. Will wait and see until the squads/managers/budgets/ financial situations etc are known before offering anymore thoughts on next season.

Quite an assessment QPR4ME, I think if Boro can keep hold of their youngsters they'll bounce back ahead of Newcastle. WBA may well lift the trophy because they know this league inside out - depends if Mowbray is enticed by Celtic or not...

I wouldn't even stick a Lady on us unless we get in at least 2 half-way decent strikers
