Premier League Relegation Odds – Which newly promoted side does best?

Who will be the top newcomer to the EPL this season?

Premier League Betting

With the transfer deadline having passed in England (although clubs can still sell players through to the end of August) there is a pretty clear picture now of settled squads that the clubs will be taking into the new season with them. Last season all three of the newly promoted sides, which were Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield all managed to avoid going straight back down.

How will this season’s newly promoted clubs, Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham get on? Here we take a look at the three newly promoted clubs, assess their chances of survival and consider which of them will finish the highest in the table of the end of the season.


4/6 for Relegation
6/5 To Stay Up
2/1 to Finish Bottom

Cardiff did well in the Championship last season because right throughout the campaign there were question marks about whether or not they had the strength in depth to hang on. They only managed to get automatic qualification on the final day of the season because of Fulham losing against Birmingham. Still, they had played their way into that second place very well and it was because of their organisation and their grit under Neil Warnock.

You are not going to see a lot of pretty football from the Bluebirds. That’s not been their way under Warnock. They were very direct with their style in the Championship and they were the least successful passing side in the entire second tier last season. They have added Bobby Reid notably from Bristol City to try and get the extra goals. We are doubting that they are going to have enough punch and quality at the end of the day though.

Prediction: Relegation


2/1 to be Relegated
2/5 to Stay Up
9/1 to Finish Bottom
9/2 for a Top Ten Finish

The Cottagers came up to the top flight through the playoffs. Over the course of the second half of the season, Fulham put together a 23-match beaten streak of form. They started to produce some highly impressive stuff and only the Championship winners Wolves managed to outscore the cottagers at the end of the season. In stark contrast to the style of Cardiff, Fulham like to get the ball down and knock it around and you will see plenty of with an attacking flair from the London club. They are 9/2 to squeeze into the top flight top ten*( betting odds taken from August 9, 2018, at 9:05 PM).

They have every reason to be optimistic about the season ahead for them in the top flight especially with the clear tactical qualities that manager Slavisa Jokanovic will bring to the table. Fulham have added more pieces to their squad to strengthen and enhance. They have signed Aleksandar Mitrovic from Newcastle on a permanent basis after he impressed so much for them on loan last. Their defence will be boosted with Calum Chambers and Alfie Mawson and they may well have got one of the signings of the summer in midfielder Jean Michael Seri. There is a strong squad that Fulham are bringing to the table.

Prediction: Bottom half of table finish


7/1 to be Relegated
1/10 to Stay Up
25/1 to Finish Bottom
11/10 Top Ten Finish
*( betting odds taken from August 9, 2018, at 9:05 PM)

After such a strong season in the Championship as they just steamroller over the rest of the competition to win the title, Wolves will be expecting to push on and not just survive but thrive in the top flight. While they came up with a strong squad they have been really busy over the summer in the transfer market and their ambitions have been fully highlighted by some of the signings they have made such as Joao Moutinho, Willy Boly, Rui Patricio and club record signing Adama Traore.

There could be a very strong season ahead with all the bits and pieces that they have in place. Given the amount of investment that they have made over the summer, they will probably be looking at the top half of the table finish which is at 11/10*( betting odds taken from August 9, 2018, at 9:05 PM) and not without its appeal either. While there is always some adjustment to make sure teams coming up to the top flight from the championship Wolves look the best-equipped of any side who have come up in the past few seasons.

Prediction: Top ten finish
