2021/22 Premier League Relegation Odds

Brentford relegation odds

Brentford lead the way as the bookies' favourite to head straight back into the Championship, which only seems natural given this will be the clubs first-ever season in the Premier League. It does, however, seem like a long time coming for Brentford under Thomas Frank.

With the Dane at the helm, the Bees have seen heartbreak at play-off finals, league title chases fall by the wayside and overall, witness the London outfit move from Premier League hopefuls to genuine contenders to stay in the league.

Ahead of their debut season in the top flight, it's absolutely anybody's guess on how they'll do. Clubs like Leeds United have proved that staying with their style of play is the way forward, but then the likes of Fulham echo that if you don't adjust, you could just go straight back down.

With all this considered, Brentford are priced at EVENS to go down, but 8/11 to stay up.

watford relegation odds

Alongside Brentford are the newly promoted Watford. After finishing second in the Championship, the team from Hertfordshire will struggle to adapt to life back in the Premier League if they do not add quality to their squad, as it was a hit and miss Championship season at times. The current squad is still predominately filled with players who were relegated in the 2019/20 season, with the only additions being Joao Pedro and Phillip Zinckernagel being the only worthwhile additions.

Additionally, manager Xisco has no experience in top flight football in a top league, as his only previous venture in first division football came under Dinamo Tbilisi in the Georgian top tier. You can just see it now: Watford head for relegation with the manager sacked halfway through the season and his replacement can't save them. Same old, same old.

Watford are EVENS to get relegated.

Norwich relegation odds

Norwich are also tipped for an immediate return to the Championship, as they complete the trio of favourites at EVENS to go right back down for the newly promoted three.

The Canaries also kept the bulk of their squad that experienced relegation in the 2019/20 season as key players such as Teemu Pukki, Max Aarons and Emi Buendia all stayed to help get them back up. However, it does seem like they will lose both Aarons and Buendia, with many clubs seeking their signatures.

In Daniel Farke, they have a manager who has Premier League experience, and so the German would have learnt from the Canaries’ previous tenure in the Premier League. Although, the last time out in the top flight, they were hopeless throughout most of the campaign.

However, unless they are unable to improve their squad, then Norwich are most likely to be facing an immediate return to the second tier. Ultimately, it depends on who they keep, rather than who they bring in it seems.

Brighton relegation odds

Graham Potter’s Brighton finished in 16th place last season, in a season where many tipped them to finish a lot higher and a clear reason for this was the lack of striking quality for the Seagulls.

Brighton created a lot of chances last campaign, but they were unable to be converted, with strikers Neil Maupay and Danny Welbeck only scoring eight and six goals, respectively, which is not enough if Brighton were to be dragged into a relegation scrap.

If Brighton are to beat the drop next year, then they will have to invest in a striker who will be able to convert the array of chances they create. While in manager Graham Potter, they have quality at the helm where the players understand what he wants from them.

It seems as if many are tipping Brighton for relegation, but if they can continue on in this vein of form, they should be ok - they are an almighty 11/2 to go down and 1/10 to stay up.

Burnley relegation odds

Burnley finished 17th in the Premier League last season, 11 points of 18th which shows the job that Sean Dyche has done, being able to keep them in the Premier league for a fifth consecutive year. This feat is impressive especially with the players that Burnley have and the lack of funds to make major investment in the team.

As teams around them continue to make sound investments, this is where Burnley will likely come unstuck. Each year, Burnley have stayed in the Premier League they have continued to slip down the table moving closer towards the relegation zone. The fact they finished just above the drop zone is a worrying sign for the Clarets, so their time in the top tier is slowly coming to an end.

It's going to be arguably their biggest and toughest test yet for Burnley next year, and at 11/4, some are tipping them to end their stay in the Premier League.

Newcastle relegation odds

Newcastle’s form picked up at the end of last season and saw them move away from the relegation zone and into 12th, where they finished above Wolves and Southampton. This was due to Callum Wilson, Allan Saint-Maximim, Miguel Almiron and loanee Joe Willock all contributing to this rise up the table. With Willock returning to his parent club, Steve Bruce will be looking to find a suitable replacement in the summer to help link up with Wilson, Saint-Maximim and Almiron, because other than this trio, there is a seriously worrying lack of quality.

Newcastle’s rise up the table in the latter part of the season shows the improvements that Bruce has made and the potential that Newcastle possesses in their squad. It does, however, once again look like a massive summer for the Magpies, because if Willock leaves, there is yet another hole left in the squad.

Crystal Palace relegation odds

The final team that are tipped for relegation are Crystal Palace. This is due to the uncertainty surrounding the club heading into the summer. The departure of Roy Hodgson as manager brings into question the direction the club will head in, as the last manager they appointed when trying to head in a different direction ended terribly with Frank de Boer being sacked after four months at the helm.

Palace also have 12 contracts expiring on June 30, which means that they will be losing a lot of players who have been key pieces of the team in recent years. The new manager will determine if Palace go down the route of buying young players or adding experience, but one again it looks as if should Wilfred Zaha leave, so does their Premier League status.

As a result, they've moved to 5/2 to go down, and the more you digress on Palace, the more it looks as if this might just be their biggest summer transfer window in recent times.
