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

Brighton are the new favourites to be relegated from the Premier League in the 2017-18 season after they and their fellow newcomers Huddersfield Town made vastly contrasting starts.

Huddersfield had originally been the shortest price in the Premier League relegation betting due to their surprise promotion last term via the play-offs, which secured their first top-flight campaign since 1972.

But the Terriers have so far confounded the bookmakers and many pundits, collecting seven points from a possible nine before the season’s first international break to sit third in the table without conceding a goal.

It is a much different story at Brighton, however, for the beginning of their first season at the highest level since 1983 has seen them fail to score a goal in their opening three games and the solitary point they gained was from a 0-0 draw with Watford.

At least Chris Hughton’s side are off the mark in terms of their points tally, though. That is more than can be said for Crystal Palace, Bournemouth and West Ham United and consequently the odds have been cut for each of those clubs to be relegated.

Bournemouth can consider themselves unlucky to have conceded a last-gasp winner against title favourites Manchester City, but the other two teams have been distinctly unimpressive, especially in defence, and their managers are already coming under real pressure.

Second favourites to be relegated though are Burnley, even though they have already collected four points from two very tough away matches against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur – which is only three fewer than they picked up on the road in the whole of last season!

The bookmakers have clearly yet to be convinced about the chances of the Clarets consolidating in the Premier League beyond a single campaign, while they also appear doubtful regarding Swansea’s prospects of avoiding another dogfight despite their evident improvement under manager Paul Clement and some eye-catching transfer-deadline signings.

Watford, meanwhile, are on the drift to go down after Marco Silva made a fine start as their manager, keeping them unbeaten in their first three games including a 3-3 draw with Liverpool.
