Premier League relegation odds are dominated by the three teams that were promoted from the Championship last season.

Norwich, Watford and Brentford are all similarly priced within Grosvenor Sport’s Premier League relegation odds lists but it is the Canaries that sit as narrow favourites ( 9/10 ), with Watford an even money chance and Brentford priced up at 11/10.

Daniel Farke's side finished ten points ahead of Brentford in the Championship so it’s a little surprising that they should be slightly shorter in relegation odds than the Bees, who are entering alien territory having not experienced top-flight football since 1936.

The Norwich squad has been bolstered by the loan signing of Chelsea wonderkid Billy Gimour but if they are going to survive in the Premier League then they are likely to be reliant on the goals of Teemu Pukki, who notched 26 times for the Canaries in 2020/21.

Watford’s prominent position in Premier League relegation odds lists won’t come as a surprise to Hornets fans. Watford were perennially scrapping away in the bottom half of the Premier League before finally falling through the trap door in 2019/20.

We might see one of the more established Premier League names drop out of the league in 2022 and prime candidates for that have to be Crystal Palace who look particularly vulnerable this time around.

The Eagles ship has been in safe hands under Roy Hodgson but new boss Patrick Viera doesn't have anything like the same levels of experience and Palace's price of 7/4 in Premier League relegation odds suggests the Frenchman's first season as a Premier League boss could be an unforgiving one.

Sean Dyche, now the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, was heavily linked to the Selhurst Park job but it looks unlikely that the in-demand 50-year-old will be going anywhere any time soon.

However, Burnley sailed pretty close to the wind in 2020/21, finishing fourth-bottom, albeit with an 11-point cushion on the bottom three, and Grosvenor Sport expect the Turf Moor side to be firmly in the running for relegation once again.

Burnley are 5/2 in Premier League odds, along with Newcastle who will once again be under the stewardship of Steve Bruce, much to the dismay of most Toon fans.

Southampton dropped through the league like a stone through water in 2020/21 having briefly held top sport in the early weeks. The Saints are 9/2 in Premier League relegation odds but that could look an appealing price if they lose star striker Danny Ings, who has reportedly turned down a new contract offer at St Mary’s.

Could Wolverhampton Wanderers slip into a relegation fight? New Wolves boss Bruno Lage has big boots to fill given how far Nuno Espirito Santo took the West Midlands club. Wolves look set to lose midfield linchpin Ruben Neves this summer which is going to be a blow and Premier League relegation odds of 5/1 might tempt some more optimistic punters in.
