Betting on a specific match or placing a long-term Premier League bet, 888sport have you covered.
What Is Relegation?
If a club finishes in the bottom three of the Premier League table, they will drop into the English Championship. Relegation betting is very popular with punters, especially in the Premier League. Ahead of the 2018/19 season, Cardiff City were favourites to drop down to England’s second tier despite securing promotion less than six months ago. 888sport offer various relegation odds, including bets on the English Premier League, English Championship and major international competitions.
Premier League Relegation History
West Bromwich Albion, relegated at the end of the 2017/18 season, have yoyoed between the English Premier League and Championship in recent times. The Baggies were relegated three times in the space of nine years before their latest promotion to the Premier League although they are now back in the second tier of English football.
To this date, Blackburn Rovers are the only club to have won the Premier League title but then been relegated. Rovers were crowned English champions in 1994/95 but have since dropped down to the Championship on two separate occasions, once in 1998/99 and then again in 2011/12.
