With just a couple of months of the 2022-23 English Premier League season to go, now is a good time to check out the EPL relegation odds. It is shaping up to be one of the most intense battles for survival in Premier League history.
Eight clubs are fighting for their lives. Things are incredibly tight in England’s top tier, with just four points separating Crystal Palace in 12th to Southampton in 20th. Read on for the latest EPL relegation odds and EPL team stats.
Best Relegation Battle to Date
Naturally, all eyes will be on the Premier League title race between Arsenal and Manchester City. The battle for UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League places is also intriguing. However, this year’s fight for survival could top the lot.
With so many clubs scrapping for their Premier League lives, the battle to avoid the bottom three will no doubt go to the wire. Aston Villa are safe in 11th on 38 points, but the rest of the clubs below are all embroiled in a relegation fight.
The Relegation Candidates
Fulham has had a fine Premier League season after winning promotion from the EFL Championship, and Marco Silva’s men are eyeing up a European place. However, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest – who were promoted alongside the Cottagers last term – are both in trouble.
Southampton has had a tough year in the top flight. They have been competitive since winning promotion over a decade ago, but the Saints have struggled this year.
Right now, Southampton is the favorite for the drop at -275.
After winning promotion from the Championship, this was always going to be a tough year for Bournemouth. Scott Parker was sacked early doors, and the Cherries have failed to find consistency since.
Bournemouth is priced at -163 to be relegated.
West Ham United (+400)
West Ham has dazzled in Europe this term, but their form domestically has been woeful. In truth, the Irons should be nowhere near the bottom three, but they need to start winning games.
The Hammers are available at +400 for relegation.
Leicester City (+400)
Leicester is another team that should be well clear of the bottom three. They were FA Cup winners a couple of years back, but a bad start to this campaign set the tone for a miserable season so far.
Looking at the latest EPL relegation odds, the Foxes are also priced at +400.
Nottingham Forest (+100)
Nottingham Forest is back in the big time after two decades away. They have been competitive under Steve Cooper and are currently 16th. Can the Reds survive this season?
They are available at +100 for the drop.
Everton is having another difficult season. However, they have improved since Sean Dyche arrived at Goodison Park and could start climbing up the Premier League table.
However, the Toffees are priced at just +163 for relegation.
Leeds United (+300)
Leeds has enjoyed their time back in the Premier League since gaining promotion, but the Whites have had a tricky season so far. New boss Javi Gracia has his work cut out at Elland Road.
Leeds is available at +300.
Wolverhampton Wanderers (+300)
The appointment of the experienced Julen Lopetegui was, without doubt, a shrewd move by the Wolves board. Wanderers still have work to do, but Wolves will back themselves to stay up.
Like Leeds, Wanderers are also priced at +300 to be relegated.
Crystal Palace (+500)
Crystal Palace is in freefall. After a horrendous run in 2023, Patrick Vieira was replaced by Roy Hodgson in March. Keeping the Eagles up will not be an easy task for the former England manager.
Palace is priced at +500 for relegation.
