The start of a new Premier League season is often greeted by fans of clubs around England, as there will be fresh hopes for the campaign ahead. However, for some clubs, their only challenge will be to remain in the Premier League, and avoid dropping into the Championship. Below, you can find out the offshore odds for Premier League relegation and learn more about the leading contenders for the drop.
Before Betting On Premier League Relegation
The three teams joining the Premier League this coming season are Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and Fulham. All three will be among the favorites for an immediate return to the Championship. Nottingham Forest have strengthened an awful lot over the summer, with the arrivals of former Manchester United players Dean Henderson and Jesse Lingard immediately improving their squad from the previous season. Taiwo Awoniyi will lead the line for Forest on their return to the top-flight.
Both Fulham and Bournemouth haven’t strengthened as much as many within the club would have hoped, and things are looking pretty bleak surrounding their chances of staying in the top-flight.
Leeds United have overseen a huge summer of change, with key stars Raphinha and Kelvin Phillips both departing the club. Time will tell whether they have strengthened well enough to stay in the Premier League, but it certainly doesn’t help their chances that coach Jesse Marsch is among the early contenders to be the first manager sacked.
Everton endured a campaign to forget last term, and things may not get much better for Frank Lampard. The Toffees lost Richarlison over the summer, and they will still need to strengthen to ensure they avoid a repeat campaign. Southampton and Brentford could complete the sides that are looking to remain in the Premier League this coming season.
Premier League Relegation Offshore Odds
The battle to avoid relegation this term looks very interesting. I have a feeling Forest will do relatively well, while Fulham have a natural goalscorer in Aleksandr Mitrovic, which gives them a solid chance. I fear for Bournemouth after a quiet summer of business, while a fast start will be needed for Leeds. The fact that Brentford have lost Christian Eriksen could make them a value play at +240. Meanwhile, if Wolves don’t add a striker before the transfer deadline, they could be a very decent chance to be relegated at +400.
