Premier League relegation odds: Burnley slashed after £20m Chris Wood sale

Premier League relegation odds: Burnley slashed after £20m Chris Wood sale

The Clarets are now odds-on for the drop having agreed the sale of main striker Chris Wood to Premier League relegation rivals Newcastle.

Bookmakers have cut odds on Burnley being relegated to the Championship over the last 24 hours, coinciding with the departure of striker Chris Wood.  

Punters and bookies alike have responded to Newcastle’s ‘marquee’ signing, shortening odds on Burnley going down from 10/11 into as short as 4/7

The best price of 4/6 is available on Burnley being relegated with both Betway and Ladbrokes.  
That makes them the third most likely team to leave the league after this season, now trailing just Norwich (1/12) and Watford (4/7).  

The club that poached Wood, Newcastle, are next up in the relegation betting at 13/10 to be playing in England’s second division next year.

Despite an impressive first season back in the Premier League, Leeds now find themselves in the thick of it at 5/1 fifth favourites.

 Everton follows next at 12/1, then comes Brentford (18/1), Crystal Palace (29/1), Southampton (30/1), Aston Villa (75/1) and Brighton (225/1).  

Elsewhere, the transfer is impacting Newcastle’s odds in several key markets, with the Magpies cut from 10/11 into 8/11 to stay up.  

Oddschecker sister site,, reported on how Wood has reached double figures for goals in all four of his previous Premier League campaigns.

Looking at the move pessimistically for Newcastle fans, Wood scored 27 goals in his last full season in the Championship…
