The Sky Bet Championship opener kicks off this Friday at 20:45 local time and thank God that UK footie is back, because betting on the Finnish Veikkausliiga just wasn’t cutting it for me anymore!

Newly relegated AFC Sunderland will face last seasons’ Championship promotional hopefuls Derby County, in what could be a closely fought affair.

In a touching tribute, a minute’s applause will be held before kick off in memory of Bradley Lowery.

Sunderland are favorites and you can get @13/10 as a competitive price with most bookies but we found Bet Victor offering @11/8 at the time of writing. Derby are @21/10 across the board with the draw best price with bet365 @12/5.
