Premier League: Any Three from Nine as the Relegation Battle Heats Up

The battle to avoid relegation from the Premier League is shaping up to be one of the most fiercely fought battles in recent years.

With one-third of the season remaining, just six points separates the bottom nine teams in the English top flight.

We take a look at the Premier League relegation battle and assess some of the key betting angles worth considering.


  • Bournemouth the bookies’ favourites to go down
  • Wolves climbing away from trouble
  • Palace looking nervously over their shoulders

Bournemouth Fancied for Relegation

The latest 10bet odds list Bournemouth as the 1/3 favourites to be relegated at the end of the season and it is difficult to argue with that assessment.

The Cherries have conceded 51 goals in 15 outings this season – the worst defensive record in the Premier League by a considerable distance.

They have picked up just five points in their last ten league matches, with their only victory coming against Wolverhampton Wanderers in February.

Bournemouth’s remaining fixtures look tough and it is difficult to imagine their squad having the necessary quality to finish outside the bottom three.

Wolves Clawing Their Way to Safety

Wolves were deep in trouble before the World Cup break, but have gradually edged away from trouble under new manager Julen Lopetegui.

The Midlands side have won five and drawn two of their 11 matches under the Spaniard to climb up to 13th place in the Premier League standings.

They are now priced at 7/1 with 10bet to be relegated, although several other UK betting apps are offering slightly better odds on them finishing in the bottom three.

While the defeat against Bournemouth highlights that Wolves should take nothing for granted, they should have enough about them to steer clear of trouble.

Palace Sleepwalking into Trouble

Crystal Palace have gone under the radar in the relegation market, but are bang in trouble after failing to record a league victory since the turn of the year.

They were priced at 12/1 to go down just a couple of weeks ago, but were cut to 7/1 by 10bet after losing at Aston Villa last weekend. 

While some pundits have praised the job done by manager Patrick Vieira, the Frenchman’s team appear to be sleepwalking their way into trouble.

Their upcoming schedule includes fixtures against Manchester City and Arsenal – defeats in those games would see Palace’s odds to be relegated slashed even further.
