Huddersfield already down and Cardiff are now 5 points adrift from safety.
It’s looking unlikely that we’ll have a dramatic relegation battle in the Premier League, as Cardiff are now as short as 1/8 to go straight back down after losing to Chelsea.
With Huddersfield officially relegated and Fulham soon to be confirmed, the 1/8 price equates to an 89% chance that the three teams currently in the bottom three will be there come May.
It was a huge weekend for Burnley and Southampton, who produced crucial wins to pull themselves away from trouble. They are now 13/2 and 66/1 best price respectively to be relegated.
On the flip side, you can get 11/2 best price that Cardiff stay up; that price has drifted massively from 13/8 at the start of the weekend.
Chelsea might have won on Sunday afternoon, but the result hasn’t lifted the pressure on Maurizio Sarri. He’s 8/11 to be the next Premier League manager to leave, with Bluebirds boss Neil Warnock the next most likely pick at 7/1.
Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek: “This could well be the weekend that defines the battle at the bottom. All results went against Cardiff and the side with the joint-second leakiest defence look to be going straight back down, just as they did in 2013/14.”
