Just one of the three promoted sides survived the Premier League relegation battle in 2021-22. Brentford, the Championship's promotion playoff winners in 2021, secured top flight football for next season. Norwich City and Watford were relegated back to the Championship for another year of promotion battling.
The Premier League sees three newly promoted sides join the ranks of the top flight this season. Bournemouth, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest will all take part in this season's Premier League. The three promoted sides are all tipped by leading sportsbooks to be relegated at the end of the campaign. It isn't a good omen for either side ahead of 2022-23.
Based on last season, there is a good chance one or two teams could be sent packing after just one season in the top flight. Bournemouth and Fulham are familiar with the Premier League, while Nottingham Forest will play their first top flight campaign in over 20 years.
Let's look at the Premier League relegation odds and which teams will battle against the drop in 2022-23.
Premier League Relegation Odds
Although bookies have the three promoted teams down as the odds on favourites to be relegated, there will be competition from some established Premier League teams. Just 38 points were needed in 2021-22 to prevent relegation. That is just 1.0 points per match.
Here are the latest Premier League relegation odds for the upcoming season:
- Bournemouth 4/6
- Nottingham Forest 5/6
- Fulham 5/4
- Leeds United 13/5
- Brentford 11/4
- Southampton 7/2
- Everton 5/1
- Wolverhampton Wanderers 6/1
- Crystal Palace 6/1
- Brighton 10/1
- Aston Villa 12/1
- Leicester City 18/1
- Newcastle United 33/1
- West Ham 33/1
- Arsenal 500/1
- Manchester United 1000/1
- Tottenham Hotspur 1000/1
- Chelsea 2500/1
- Liverpool 5000/1
- Manchester City 5000/1
Who Are the Favourites To Be Relegated?
The favourites to be relegated are the three teams that were promoted from the Championship last season.
Fulham smashed their way to the title in the Championship with 90 points. Marco Silva's team scored 106 goals with striker Aleksandar Mitrovic setting a new record for goals in a single season with 43.
Bournemouth, like Fulham, are a recent Premier League team. Manager Scott Parker returned the Cherries to the top flight after a few seasons in the second tier. Bournemouth finished second in the Championship with 88 points last term.
Nottingham Forest went from the outhouse to the penthouse last season. The club started the campaign in dire straits under the management of Chris Hughton. After struggling through the first month or so of the campaign, Hughton was sacked in favour of former Swansea City manager Steve Cooper.
Cooper turned the club around and turned the team into a constant winning force. Nottingham Forest defeated Huddersfield in the Championship playoff final.
However, just because the Premier League relegation odds say that the newly promoted sides have more of a chance of going straight back down, doesn't mean they will.
Ensure you check back on a regular basis to get the latest Premier League relegation odds as the season progresses.
Who Was Relegated Last Season?
The trio of Norwich City, Watford, and Burnley were all relegated from the top flight last term. Norwich City and Watford had just earned promotion from the second division the season prior. Both sides struggled and sacking their respective managers didn't help.
Norwich City finished the season with just 22 points. The Canaries posted a record of 5W-7D-26 with 23 goals for and 84 against. Watford collected 23 points with a record of 6W-5D-27 losses. The Hornets scored 34 goals and conceded 77 times.
The third team to be sent down was Burnley. After a six season stay in the Premier League, the Clarets were sent packing to the second division. Burnley took their relegation down to the final day. Had Burnley won against Newcastle United, they would have saved their top flight status. Leeds United achieved safety instead of Burnley with 38 points.
Fulham Relegation Odds
Fulham can be backed at Premier League odds of 5/4 to go back down to the Championship. The Cottagers have been a yo-yo club in recent seasons. The second division has not been an issue for the club, but it is playing in the top flight that has caused problems.
Manager Marco Silva has coached in the Premier League previously with Hull City and Everton. His time at Everton did not go well. If Fulham struggle to defend, which is possible after conceding 53 goals in 2020-21 while playing in the top flight, then they will go down.
Bournemouth Relegation Odds
Bournemouth had ups and downs during the Championship season but overcame their issues to win automatic promotion. A lot will depend on the Cherries' offseason signings. Bournemouth are looking at a number of players in the football market.
Bookies' best odds on Bournemouth to be relegated are at 4/6. Manager Scott Park oversaw Fulham's relegation in 2020-21. He knows what a relegation battle feels like. Bournemouth are no worse than some of the teams that finished near the bottom of last season's Premier League table. Parker must get consistent points to prevent the drop, however.
Nottingham Forest Relegation Odds
Nottingham Forest are at the EPL relegation odds of 5/6. The Reds were in great form at the end of last season and will feel confident about staying up. Steve Cooper is a brilliant manager and showed his class last season after arriving at the City Ground.
Forest had several players on loan last season that did well. Djed Spence performed fantastically, but he is a Middlesbrough player. Nottingham Forest are trying to sign Spence permanently. The Reds have competition as Tottenham want the right back as well. Meanwhile, goalkeeper Brice Samba is at odds with the club over a new contract.
These issues could play havoc with Cooper this season. If Forest get off to a bad start, it may be difficult to turn things around.
Dark Horses For Relegation
Ralph Hasenhuttl joined Southampton midway through the 2018-19 season. He took over from Mark Hughes and led the Saints to a 16th place finish.
The following season saw Southampton end the year in 11th. Since then, Hasenhuttl has led Southampton to back to back 15th place finishes.
The Saints aren't getting any better. The conveyor belt of great talent that at one time included Sadio Mane, Virgil van Dijk, and Adam Lallana has ended. The club may even lose captain James Ward Prowse to rivals Newcastle United or Arsenal this summer.
Last season did not end well for Southampton. The Saints went without a win in their last six games with each of the final four ending in defeat. Just five points separated Southampton from the bottom three. The Saints are a dark horse for relegation.
Although Southampton are a major dark horse, the likes of Wolverhampton, Brighton, and Leeds United could all struggle in 2022-23. Wolves were hot and cold under Bruno Lage, while Brighton's consistency lacked at times. Meanwhile, Leeds United needed a final day win to stave off the drop last term.
Aston Villa and Crystal Palace are outside choices but can't be ruled out completely.

Which Manager Has The Most Premier League Relegations on their CV?
