As another Premier League season looms it’s not only the top of the table betting that attracts interest from football betting punter, but also the relegation odds.

Last season (2021-22) we saw Burnley, Watford and Norwich (bottom) all relegated from the English top-flight – but who are the contenders to face the drop ahead of the 2022-23 season?

Nottingham Forest, Fulham and Bournemouth were the three promoted sides from the Championship last season so it’s no shock to see two of this trio as three shortest-prices in the Premier League 2022-23 relegation betting.

Bournemouth are the clear favourites at 1.57 to face the drop back to the Championship before a ball has been kicked, while Forest are 1.90 and Fulham are on offer at 2.20

Next best is Brentford at 3.50, who managed to survive their first season in the Premier League last season with a decent 13th place finish and 46 points.

Looking at the more established sides to be relegated, we’ve Leeds, who finished 17th last season with 38 points, next best in the market at 3.50. With Everton, who were the big name fighting it out at the bottom in the closing weeks, but manager Frank Lampard just managed to keep the Merseysiders up on the final day- they are 4.33 to be relegated next season though!

Next are Southampton, who have been hovering around the relegation area for a few seasons now – they managed 15th last season with 40 points but are 4.00 to face the drop ahead of the 22/23 season.

Brighton did well last season to finish 9th so you’d probably want bigger than the 9.00 on them going down, but lower than them are sides like Wolves at 5.00, who finished 10th last season and then Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace are next best at 6.00.

Money bags Newcastle are as big as 26.00 to go down but with their huge bankroll it will be a big shock if the Magpies go down.

Villa at 11.00 might tempt some people in, while Leicester are 15.00 – it’s really name you price the rest as we are now really into the sides that will be challenging either for the league of a top 6-8 place and going down will never really be an option for them.

Overall, it’s hard to look beyond the three Championship sides that came up – Forest, Fulham and Bournemouth. Fulham, who won their division last term, netted a monster 106 in the Championship last season so if bringing that form to the top-flight might be enough to see them survive.

Forest sneaked up by winning the play-offs and on that theory could be vulnerable too, but it’s easy to see why Bournemouth are the clear favourites to face the drop and it would be a surprise if they are not one of the three teams going down next season.

Of the rest, you feel Everton won’t get themselves in that situation again like last season, but Leeds did look vulnerable. They may lose a few big names over the summer too – like Kalvin Phillips – so the 3.50 on them to be relegated looks fair value.

Southampton could be the other team (at 4.00) to have a small play on. The Saints only managed 40 points last season and ended with a -24 goal difference too. They were also only 5 points (less than 2 wins) away from facing the drop.
