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 (2022-23) we saw Leicester, Leeds, and Southampton (bottom) all relegated from the English top-flight – with all three of the newly-promoted sides (Forest, Fulham & Bournemouth) surviving.

Last year we almost hit the jackpot by predicting Leeds, Southampton, and Bournemouth to be relegated – so 2 out of the three landed – but who are the contenders to face the drop ahead of the 2022-23 season?

Luton Town, Sheff Utd and Burnley 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 2023-24 relegation betting.

Luton are the clear favourites at just 1.36 to face the drop back to the Championship before a ball has been kicked, while Sheff Utd are 1.61 and Burnley are on offer at 2.75.

Next best is Bournemouth at 2.75, who managed to survive last season in the Premier League after being promoted the year before last season – they ended with 39 points in 15th spot.

Nottm Forest are on offer at 3.75 as they avoided the drop with their big squad to finish 16th last season on 38 points.

Looking at the more established sides to be relegated, we’ve Everton, who were the big name fighting it out at the bottom in the closing weeks for the last two seasons – having finished 17th for the last two campaigns – you can back the Toffeemen at 4.00 to be relegated.

Fulham are sure to have their backers too at 4.50, but the Cottagers had a great campaign last season in 10th with 52 points and a repeat of that effort would be more than good enough to keep then out of the bottom three.

Wolves are many people’s value relegation bet at 5.50 and it’s easy to see why. Wanderers only managed 13th last season with 41 points – which was just 7 points away from the drop. They are on offer at 5.50 to be relegated.

Crystal Palace are the next shortest team in the betting at 8.00 – with Roy Hodgson at the helm at the start of the season you feel his experience will be good enough to keep them away from danger. Last season they ended with 45 points in 11th.

Brentford are 10th favourites to be relegated at 9.00 but had a top season again last term with 59 points in 9th and even a slight dip on that form will be good enough to see them maintain their top-flight status for another season.

West Ham, despite being European winners last season, might have their backers too as the London club struggled last season in 14th (40 points) and with their main man Declan Rice now an Arsenal man, this makes life harder still. They were only 2 wins off the drop last season and can be backed at 15.00, which looks fair value.

Its name your price the rest, with Villa 41.00, Brighton 51.00 and Spurs and the rest 101.00+.

Overall, it’s hard to not see newly-promoted Luton Town in the mix to go down – this will be a big leap up in grade for the Hatters and despite being 1.36, they look the obvious call for one of the three places. You can also back them at 2.50 to finish bottom.

Burnley, we feel, will be safe with the useful Vincent Kompany at the helm, with the other two relegation places going to Sheff Utd, who also came up from the Championship, and Wolves being the left-field value bet.

Wolves showed signs last season they are on a slight decline and at 5.50 look the value call. They find it hard to score goals, with just 31 bagged last season and the lowest of all the 20 sides – even the three that went down.



SHEFF UTD @ 1.61

WOLVES @ 5.50
