Transfer deadline to shape Premier League relegation odds

Transfer deadline to shape Premier League relegation odds

oddschecker have the latest on the Premier League relegation odds, with teams facing one more game and just over one week until transfer deadline day.

Just three points currently separate the bottom four teams in the Premier League, although you wouldn’t think it when looking at the Premier League relegation odds.

Bookmakers appear to have a degree of clarity on who they think are likely to find themselves in the bottom three come the end of the season.

We are now over halfway through what could prove to be a pivotal transfer window for the teams struggling at the bottom of the table.

Norwich City

As transfer deadline day looms, Norwich City remain the bookmakers’ favourite to be relegated at the end of the season at a best price of 2/11. That’s a longer price than the 1/10 they could be found at before the transfer window, but that’s more down to a surprise win against Everton on Saturday rather than any transfer window activity.

Norwich City’s resources appear limited and there is little indication that the Canaries will add any significant signings to their squad before the end of January.

Burnley

Second favourites for the drop are Sean Dyche’s Burnley, who currently find themselves bottom of the Premier League albeit with four games in hand on relegation rivals Norwich. Burnley have had a difficult time of things since the transfer window opened when they were evens to be relegated. That price has shortened to a best price of 4/7 since losing 3-1 to Leeds on the 2nd of January.

Their relegation price could shorten further with a difficult set of fixtures on the horizon. Burnley face Arsenal, Man United and Liverpool in their next three and could be left in a precarious position if they fail to pick up points. Burnley are thought to be targeting Mislav Orsic in the transfer window to add some attacking creativity to the squad.

Watford

Several bookmakers have Burnley and Watford priced the same in the Premier League relegation odds, but at best odds the Hornets are slightly longer than Dyche’s side. Watford currently sit just outside the relegation zone in 17th, one point ahead and with two games in hand on Norwich.

The odds for Watford to be relegated have remained steady throughout the transfer window but prospective January signings could be crucial. They are set to announce the signing of Samuel Kalu, whose versatility in attacking areas could be important in the second half of the season.

Newcastle

The only odds-against side for relegation in the bottom four is the Magpies, whose new financial prowess may give them the edge if they can bring the right players in.

Newcastle have been linked with many players since the window opened including the likes of Jesse Lingard, Diego Carlos and Duvan Zapata. If the Magpies can land one or two big name signings expect their relegation odds to lengthen.
