As the start of the football season draws closer, we take a look at some of the ante-post betting markets now formed and this article concentrates on Premier League relegation. Unsurprisingly it's the three top-flight newcomers who head the relegation market with all of the major bookmakers, and whilst there will be plenty punters steaming into Crystal Palace, Hull and Cardiff at short odds, there is great value to be had if you delve just a little deeper.
Last season saw a number of clubs flirt with relegation at some stage and it is by no means a formality that those who steppped up from the Championship will head straight back down again. Newcastle had something of a ropey season and did not secure their Premier League status until very late in the day, whilst Norwich, Stoke and Sunderland amongst others could all feature in a relegation dog-fight once again. 17 August is the date it all kicks-off and there is some cracking early value in the relegation odds market already. The best prices are below:
Premier League 2013/14 Relegation Betting Odds
