Norwich Relegation Odds
Daniel Farke’s Norwich City topped the 2020/21 Championship table and by some margin. However, they are among the favourites to face the drop this upcoming season.
It is not surprising the Canaries are among the bookies’ favourites to face the drop given their recent record in the top flight. In their last two visits to the Premier League, they were relegated straight back down to the Championship on each occasion. They’re available at around evens with most bookmakers.
Watford Relegation Odds
After returning to the Premier League following their season down in the Championship, Xisco Muñoz’s Watford are currently the bookmaker’s favourites to go straight back down to the second-tier. However, they will be aiming to become a consistent Premier League side after their previous five-year stay among the ‘big boys’.
The Hornets return to the Premier League with a mixture of experience and exciting young prospects. João Pedro and Ismaila Sarr will be expected to carry on their progression with the likes of Ben Foster, Danny Rose and Troy Deeney offering them a wealth of Premier League experience. They appear to be either evens or odds-on with most bookies.
Brentford Relegation Odds
Despite this being their first ever season in the Premier League, the bookmakers don’t have Brentford at odds-on to be relegated before the season kicks off with Thomas Frank clearly expected to get the best out of this talented squad even in the top tier.
The Bees have been fighting for promotion to the Premier League for several seasons now and having finally achieved it, you can back them to go straight back down at around 11/10 or 1/1 in some places.
Crystal Palace Relegation Odds
This season signals a new era for Crystal Palace following the retirement of Roy Hodgson. With many of their elder statesmen leaving the club, new boss Patrick Vieira will have to hope new signings like Joachim Andersen and Michael Olise can hit the ground running.
In what is sure to be a transitional campaign for the Eagles, you can get odds of around 6/4 or 7/4 in some places on them to be relegated, so the bookmakers do expect them to narrowly avoid the drop it seems.
Burnley Relegation Odds
Will this campaign be a turning point for Burnley? Although seemingly swimming against the tide at all times in terms of budget, Sean Dyche’s ability to get the best out of his squad often sees them performing above expectations – but is that a sustainable way to remain in the Premier League?
Clarets fans will expect their team to once again defy the odds and fight for a place in mid-table, but if you expect the club’s stay in the top tier to finally come to an end this season you can get EPL relegation odds of 9/4 on Burnley with both Sky Bet and Paddy Power.
Newcastle Relegation Odds
Newcastle flirted with the bottom three for the majority of the 2020/2021 campaign before eventually pulling away, but supporters remain unhappy with the way the club is being run and if the atmosphere turns sour at St James’ Park it could be a long season with fans back in the famous stadium.
At relegation odds of 9/4, it’s clear that the bookmakers do anticipate the Magpies remaining in the Premier League for at least another season but there could be some value in that price if you’re expecting another difficult campaign for Steve Bruce’s side.
Arsenal Relegation Odds
Fancy a shock relegation this season? Arsenal struggled for consistency last season and although they’ve made some additions to the squad, plenty of punters are being tempted by the odds of up to 80/1 on the Gunners to go down this season, believe it or not!
Perhaps some of the other dark horses for relegation such as Wolves and Southampton who are both available at around 5/1 are more realistic outside bets.
