PREMIER LEAGUE ODDS RELATING TO THE RELEGATION FIGHT AND BOTTOM PLACE:

Given that West Brom probably have to amass the same number of points (20)  in their last ten games as they have managed in their first 28 matches to avoid the drop, 1/7 is arguably a half decent price with Skybet/Hills/Betfred!

Their odds of 8/15 (Skybet) to finish bottom might also attract big investors.  In terms of ‘six pointers’, the Baggies have to entertain Swansea before travelling to Newcastle.

 

The details of the rest of clubs in danger against fellow struggers (with best prices) are as follows (all played 28 games):

Stoke (26 points)

6/1 to finish bottom (365/Betway)

10/11 to be relegated (Sunbets/Betfred/Boyle/Betway)

Stoke have to travel to Southampton, West Ham & Swansea and play host to Crystal Palace.

 

Crystal Palace (27 points)

20/1 to finish bottom (365/Ladbrokes/Betfair)

5/2 to be relegated (10Bet)

Palace face Brighton and West Brom at home and travel to Huddersfield and Stoke.

 

Southampton (27 points)

33/1 to finish bottom (365/Ladbrokes/Betway)

9/2 to be relegated (Skybet)

Southampton are away at Newcastle and West Ham, whilst entertaining West Brom and Stoke.

 

Swansea (27 points)

14/1 to finish bottom (365)

7/5 to be relegated (10Bet)

Swansea are home to West Ham and Stoke, whilst travelling to Huddersfield and West Brom.

 

Newcastle (29 points)

40/1 to finish bottom (BetVictor)

5/1 to be relegated (Skybet)

Newcastle play three home games again Southampton, Huddersfield and West Brom.

 

Huddersfield (30 points)

25/1 to finish bottom (365/Ladbrokes/BetVictor)

9/4 to be relegated (365/Skybet/BetVictor)

Huddersfield are at home to Swansea and Crystal Palace and away at Newcastle and Brighton.

 

West Ham (30 points)

66/1 (Generally available)

10/1 to be relegated (Betway)

West Ham entertain Southampton and Stoke and are away at Swansea.

 

Brighton (31 points)

66/1 to finish bottom (BetVictor)

6/1 to be relegated (BetVictor)

Home to Huddersfield and away at Crystal Palace.

Another point to take into consideration perhaps is that both Swansea and Southampton have FA Cup matches to negotiate.

 

Be lucky but as ever – Be aware!
