Huddersfield defied the odds to remain in the Premier League last season, although the Terriers need to perform a Great Escape if they are to remain a top-flight entity.
David Wagner’s team have managed just ten points from 21 games played which means they are eight points adrift of safety and the bookmakers have decided that the Yorkshire side are doomed.
William Hill are the bravest with their 1/10 quote about Huddersfield going down although it appears less clear as to which teams would be joining the Terriers in the Championship next term.
Fulham are nineteenth in the Premier League table after amassing just fourteen points from 21 games, with the Cottagers trading no bigger than 8/13 to return back to the second flight after just one season at top level.
Claudio Ranieri has improved things defensively although the London side are still struggling for wins and there are only a small pool of teams who can go down.
Burnley still fall within that category even if that 2-1 win at Huddersfield has boosted their survival hopes, with Sean Dyche’s side sitting sixteenth in the table and Paddy Power have them at 5/6.
Cardiff City have also done enough to keep their heads above water thus far and they are trading at 5/6 for the drop, although it’s interesting to see Southampton trading at 5/1 with William Hill.
It initially appeared as though Ralph Hasenhuttl would bring about a change of fortunes with the Saints, although they remain in the bottom three coming into the New Year and look as though they will be scrapping between now and May.
Newcastle are the other side trading at single figure odds and BetVictor have 10/3 about the Magpies suffering the drop which would surely see Rafael Benitez leave.
