Ladbrokes offer enhanced odds on the two teams to be relegated
If the relegation odds are anything to go by, the Premier League will be waving goodbye to Blackpool and Birmingham on Sunday.
In a special relegation betting market opened by Ladbrokes, together Blackpool and Birmingham are 13/8 to be relegated on Sunday and punters have a whole host of combinations to bet on.
It’s bad news for Blackpool who fill the first two spots of the market and if punters wish to combine the Tangerines with Wigan, they can get 9/4 that the two go down.
Wigan and Birmingham combined are 3/1 to be relegated on Sunday and then there’s a big jump in the relegation odds with Birmingham and Wolves the fourth favourites at 16/1 to go down.
Blackburn, who travel to Wolves, have the longest relegation odds of the five teams fighting for their lives but picking up victory at Molineux will be difficult and Steve Keen’s side could potentially offer the most value.
For Blackburn to be relegated, they must lose and two of Birmingham, Blackpool and Wigan must win due to their goal difference being superior.
Birmingham are the favoured to team to go down with Blackburn at 22/1 while Blackpool and Blackburn is 25/1 and Wigan and Blackburn 50/1.
The only way Wolves and Blackburn can go down together (250/1) is if their game ends in a draw and all three of the sides below them win.
It may seem ridiculous but with the title sewn up Manchester United may be vulnerable at Old Trafford on Sunday and Blackpool could snatch a point or even three.
West Ham did it in the 06/07 Premier League season and Ian Holloway will be hoping for a similar result.
Wigan have a winnable game at Stoke while Birmingham face a tough trip to White Hart Lane against a side who are battling for a European spot.
This weekend will be full of twists and turns and Ladbrokes’ new relegation market offers plenty of value for punters.
