As the season draws towards a close, the pressure on those teams at the foot of the table fighting to stay in the Premier League rises. Premier League relegation betting is a popular highlight of a season punters try and pick which teams will ultimately suffer a drop to the Championship.
Sometimes teams are cut adrift long before the end of the season. But on other occasions, there are dramatic relegation issues that are still to be settled on the final day of the season. Whichever way the current Premier League fight for survival swings the 888Sport Premier League relegation odds have it all covered.
Everton are one of the original Premier League clubs from when the new top flight was formed in 1992/93. But for the past few seasons, Everton have been flirting with relegation from the EPL for the first time.
With back-to-back seasons of narrow escapes from the drop, the Merseyside club have just about been clinging on. But while Everton relegation history has seen the club stay in the top flight, a 10-point deduction in November 2023, made their survival a tough situation once again.
It also shook up the latest Everton relegation odds. The penalty dropped them back into the relegation zone after they had been showing signs of a revival under boss Sean Dyche. Will they be able to shake off adversity once again and battle their way into another season of Premier League football?
Or will seismic shockwaves be sent through English football, with Everton sliding down to the Championship?
Wolves were one of the pre-season favourites in Premier League relegation odds. But with Gary O'Neil getting the club going in the right direction after he was appointed boss for the new season, the Midlands club look as if they have breathing room.
Much better quality and consistency this season may make things a little easier this season for them, and the Wolves relegation odds have been drifting from pre-season quotes in reflection of their improved status.
Last season's Championship winners Burley have found their return to the top flight hard, just as many clubs do. The pre-season Burnley relegation odds saw the Clarets as one of the leading contenders to suffer a top-flight drop in this campaign. With the club taking only one victory in their first dozen games, it suggests that there indeed could be a long road ahead for Burnley.
Sheffield United, who were promoted along with Burnley are another of the teams who have been unable to shake off their relegation-candidate tag. The Blades did not record a win until their eleventh match of the new season. But will having broken through that barrier get them on the right path to maintaining their Premier League status? The Sheffield United relegation odds paint a difficult survival bid for the Blades.
Luton, the other newcomers to the top flight this season, were always expected to struggle. They were the pre-season Premier League relegation betting favourites. Little has changed in Luton relegation odds as the Hatters have found points hard to come by. The first win of the season for Luton came against Everton in September and they have struggled to add to that.
Fulham finished in the top half of the table last season. Fulham relegation odds for the 2023/24 Premier League season see them on the fringes of the leading contenders, with some others mentioned on this list expected to struggle more. But will a lack of goalscoring threat hurt the Londoners and drag them into a relegation battle?
Relegation concerns hung over Bournemouth last season until they got their act together towards the end of the season. The south-coast club saw their rivals Southampton drop instead and Bournemouth have their concerns about going the same way, no recording their first win of the season until their ninth game of the campaign.
Nottingham Forest stuck by boss Steve Cooper through hard times last season. It paid off as he got them safe in what was their first season back in the Premier League. Nottingham Forest's relegation odds project them to remain safe again among the Premier League elite
One thing is for sure, and that is the Premier League relegation market will be one of the big focuses of the season for punters. The fight for top-flight survival produces some of the most dramatic moments, as nerves and skills are put to the ultimate test.
Teams fighting for survival at the end of the season can also cause upsets in matches, something to watch out for in Premier League betting odds. The situation of being desperate for points can lead teams to perform above and beyond in difficult circumstances, all adding to the incredible picture of Premier League relegation.
The first teams to suffer Premier League relegation were Crystal Palace, Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest. That was at the end of the inaugural Premier League season in 1992-93. The clubs have all made it back to the top flight since then but not all have stuck around.
Norwich City hold the record for the most Premier League relegations. The Canaries have gone down six times from the top flight. The lowest points tally posted by a relegated Premier League team was Derby County in their infamous 2007-08 season during which they posted just 11 points.
Blackburn Rovers were the first-ever Premier League champions to suffer a drop from the top tier.
As soon as all the promotion and relegation issues between the top two tiers have been settled in one season, attention turns to the Premier League odds for the following season.
It’s common to see newly promoted teams sit among the front-runners in Premier League Relegation odds. It’s a tough jump for clubs making the transition from Championship promotion to even just surviving a season in the Premier League.
While a lot of teams go straight back down after having had such a tough time getting up to the EPL in the first place, sometimes big clubs fall into trouble too. Established clubs like former Premier League winners Leicester and Man City have been relegated from the top flight at some point.
