Premier League relegation odds: Trio still in contention for the drop

Latest odds in the relegation betting for the 2021/22 season

Three teams are still battling for survival as we enter the final week of the season and we examine the latest Premier League relegation odds.

Norwich and Watford’s returns to the Championship are already guaranteed and either Leeds, Burnley or Everton will be joining them.

Here we look at the prospects of the three teams still in danger of the drop.

Leeds

Premier League relegation odds: 8/11

Remaining game: Brentford (away)

Little has gone right for Leeds in the last few games but an injury-time equaliser against Brighton on Sunday could prove vital in the fight for survival.

Red cards for Luke Ayling and Dan James compounded the misery of three successive defeats and a fourth looked on the cards when they went behind at home to Brighton.

Jesse Marsch’s charges did not let up though and Pascal Struijk headed home in added time to send Elland Road wild.

The point lifted Leeds out of the bottom three but they could be back in the drop zone by the time they go to Brentford on the final day.

Burnley

Premier League relegation odds: 6/4

Remaining games: Aston Villa (away), Newcastle (home)

Burnley’s revival under Mike Jackson has been halted by back-to-back defeats against Aston Villa and Tottenham, with the Leeds equaliser against Brighton dropping the Clarets back into the dreaded 18th position.

Their performance at Spurs at least gave them plenty of encouragement after they were only beaten by a controversial Harry Kane penalty.

Burnley must quickly dust themselves down and prepare for Thursday night’s trip to Villa Park where a draw would put their destiny back in their own hands given they have a much superior goal difference to Leeds.

All is not lost if they are beaten by Villa again but they must get something from their final two games to have any hope of survival.

Everton

Premier League relegation odds: 13/2

Remaining games: Crystal Palace (home), Arsenal (away)

Everton are one of six clubs never to have been relegated from the Premier League but that could still change heading into the last week of the campaign.

Recent wins against Chelsea and Leicester left them on the brink of extending their 67-year stay in the English top flight but a goalless draw at lowly Watford was a disappointment.

That was followed by a 3-2 defeat at home to Brentford on Sunday despite twice taking the lead, although they were not helped by the first-half dismissal of Jarrad Branthwaite while they were reduced to nine men late on.

Frank Lampard’s side can make sure of safety with a win over Crystal Palace on Thursday but if they don’t, their fate will go to the last day when top-four hopefuls Arsenal will be far from ideal opponents.
