Premier League 2017-18 relegation odds: Huddersfield Town favourites for the drop

Huddersfield Town are back in the top flight of English football for the first time since 1972 – but the bookmakers believe their Premier League stay will only last a single season.

The Terriers were the surprise package of the latest Championship campaign, being in the top six for virtually the entire season and then coming through the play-off final on penalties against Reading after 120 goalless minutes.

But the bookies fear that the West Yorkshire club are not yet ready to compete with the elite and they all make them comfortably odds-on to go straight back down.

However, the prospects are significantly brighter, according to the layers, for the two clubs who were promoted automatically and both Brighton and Newcastle United are odds-against to be relegated.

The Magpies, for several reasons, are rated as having the better chance of survival. They are, of course, one of England’s biggest clubs, have been well established in the Premier League apart from a couple of relegations in the last decade from which they have bounced straight back and have a Champions League-winning manager in Rafael Benitez.

Although Brighton are also odds-on to stay up, that must be qualified by mentioning that they are still joint second favourites in the relegation market with only Huddersfield a shorter price.

Next come Burnley, who secured a second straight season of Premier League football at the third attempt since originally being promoted in 2009, with Sean Dyche’s side finishing 16th in the table last term thanks to their 10 home wins.

The Clarets will almost certainly need to improve their generally poor away form if they are to consolidate and become a permanent fixture in the top flight.

Watford go into the new season with yet another new manager after Marco Silva was appointed to replace Walter Mazzarri, who, like Quique Sanchez Flores before him, lasted only a solitary campaign.

Silva could not save Hull City from relegation after taking over in early January, but at least this time the Portuguese manager has the opportunity to stamp his mark on his new club from the outset and this will be a more representative test of his capabilities.
