Will Championship Playoff Final Go The Distance?

Norwich are 8/11 to gain promotion to the Premier League in the Championship Playoffs with Middlesbrough Even money at William Hill.

Norwich are 6/4 to win the match in 90 minutes with Middlesbrough 7/4 and the draw 21/10.

With such a tight game in prospect, it is 9/2 that it goes all the way to penalties.

“With such riches on offer and two sides who have picked up a win each in this season’s head to head we think this could be one of the closest playoff finals in history and could go all the way to penalties,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “In terms of the odds, this is the closest final since Swansea/Reading.”
