Roy to keep yo-yo Baggies up?
West Bromwich Albion are odds-on (4/9) with Ladbrokes to stay up after the appointment of Roy Hodgson.
It’s 13/8 the Baggies go down this season and the bookies are breathing a sigh of relief after previously suspending the market following a continued run of support for Chris Hughton.
The club also earn an even money quote to beat fellow relegation strugglers West Ham at the Hawthorns with 11/4 the price about a Hammers victory.
The draw is 12/5.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “It’s a fantastic result for us as the money for Hughton had us on the ropes and news of an appointment would have been the knock-out blow. We expect he will do enough to keep the Baggies up and a win over West Ham will see their price for relegation lengthen.”
