Wanderers now the bookies' favourites.
Wolverhampton Wanderers’ fifth win in a row has seen them become odds-on favourites for the Sky Bet League 1 title.
Kenny Jackett’s men moved into the automatic promotion places courtesy of a come-from-behind 2-1 win at play-off contenders Bradford City and are now 10/11 for silverware from 11/10.
Wanderers, whose goals came from loanee James Henry and defender Richard Stearman, are also as short as 1/4 for promotion back to the Sky Bet Championship at the first attempt after beginning the season at 5/4.
They still trail pacesetters Leyton Orient by three points but do have a game in hand. The leaders bagged their eleventh win of the campaign after Kevin Lisbie’s 10th league goal of the season earned a 1-0 home win over Rotherham.
Brentford are the other big movers in the market after a 1-0 home win over Shrewsbury – their third on the spin. Last season’s beaten play-off finalists are into 16/1 for the title from 20/1 and 4/1 from 9/2 to be promoted.
Coventry’s impressive run also shows no signs of abating as they pipped Walsall 1-0 at the Bescot Stadium. The Sky Blues are up to 13th despite their 10-point deduction and have been further cut to 11/2 sixth favourites after starting Saturday at 7/1.
Preston strengthened their spot in the play-off zone with a 1-0 success at Notts County and have also been shortened to 4/1 from 9/2 to gain promotion.
