Huddersfield Town 4/7 to be relegated in 2017/18



/free-bets

At the end of 2016/17 it was Hull City and Middlesbrough who returned straight back from whence they came, namely the Championship. Burnley were the only newly-promoted side to remain in the Premier League and the bookies have opened the market on who they believe will be making the drop at the end of next season.

Heading the market are Huddersfield Town at 4/7 with Bet365. The Terriers needed penalties to find a way past Reading in the play-off final at Wembley on Monday afternoon and their reward is a season in the Premier League, however the big question is - how long will they remain in the top-flight?

They should take confidence from Bournemouth, Eddie Howe's men enjoying promotion to the top-flight for the first time in their history at the end of 2014/15 and remaining in the top-flight, however the bookies are less than optimistic about the chances of David Wagner's men remaining in the top-tier for more than a single campaign.

The assumption is that the winners of Monday afternoon's play-off will struggle in the Premier League next season along with newly-promoted Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United. Burnley enjoyed a relatively successful season in 2016/17 in that they played no part in the relegation scrap towards the end of the campaign, however they are currently second-favourites at 6/4 to make the drop to the Championship tan the close of 2017/18.
