Wolves, West Ham and West Brom all odds-against for relegation

| 06.03.2011

In a weekend that provided many twists and turns in the race to avoid relegation, you have to feel for Roberto Martinez’s Wigan side.

The Lactics were inches from salvaging a point away to Manchester City in injury time on Saturday, but Connor Sammon’s effort finished the wrong side of the post and Wigan now find themselves 1/4 to be relegated.

That’s in stark contrast to the teams around them after West Brom, West Ham and Wolves all saw their relegation odds lengthened and all three teams can now be backed at odds-against.

West Ham’s 3-0 demolition of Stoke saw them leap up to 17th position in the Premier League and Avram Grand’s side are now 11/8 from 5/6 to be relegated.

West Brom’s incredible win at St Andrews against rivals Birmingham has left Roy Hodgson’s side in 16th place, one point ahead of West Ham, and the Baggies are 5/4 to go down.

However Brimingham now find themselves in the relegation zone after that loss and while they have two games in hand on most of the teams around them at the bottom of the league, Alex McLeish’s side are a big price at 2/1 to go down.

Wolves also remain in the bottom three but they play Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux today and a win would put them level on points with West Ham – Mick McCarthy’s side are 11/10 to be relegated.

However Blackburn’s defeat at Fulham has seen their relegation odds cut from 6/1 to 3/1 and Steve Kean’s side are currently in freefall after their winless run stretched to five league games.

Blackpool host Chelsea on Monday in a game where they would be expected to leave with zero points, and Ian Holloway’s side are 5/4 to be relegated as more teams get sucked into a relegation battle.

A £25 stake on Santander beating Real Madrid 1-0 would return £325. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
