Norwich look set for the Championship next season...
With the title all but decided in the Premier League, it comes to no surprise that the real interest for Project Restart is to see which teams can stay up.
Just two points separate 15th place Brighton and 18th place Bournemouth, with at least six teams facing the very real prospect of relegation.
But who is the favourite to be relegated? Which three teams will be plying their trade in the Championship next season? Well, Oddschecker has taken a look at the relegation run-in.
Norwich City captured the imagination early in the season, defeating champions Manchester City and Teemu Pukki scoring week after week.
Alas, all good things must come to an end – and Daniel Farke’s side now see themselves 1/9 odds-on favourites for a swift return back to the Championship.
In implied probability, that’s a 90% chance that Norwich finish in the bottom three.
The other two odds-on shots
Elsewhere, there are two other struggling sides that are odds-on in the market, with bookies earmarking a clear three favourites for the drop.
Another newly-promoted side in Aston Villa are the second favourites to go down, currently priced at 4/9 ahead of the resumption of the league.
Eddie Howe has enjoyed a tremendous time in the Premier League with Bournemouth, but it does look as if it could be coming to the end.
Currently priced at 5/6, bookies think it’s more likely than not that the Cherries will return to the Championship for the first time since 2015.
The teams above the drop zone
West Ham, Watford and Brighton are just ahead of the aforementioned.
With only goal difference separating West Ham and Watford from Bournemouth’s precarious position, both are just above odds-on to go down.
David Moyes’ side are 12/5 fourth-favourites for relegation, although are as short as 20/21 on the Betfair Exchange.
Watford are only slightly longer, currently priced at 5/2 that Troy Deeney and co drop down a tier of English football.
Brighton handed a new contract to Graham Potter mid-way through this season, and he’ll have to work for his money to keep the Seagulls from dropping down the table.
Potter’s side are only two points clear of Watford and have a relatively short 3/1 price to be relegated following the 19/20 season.
