Premiership: Promoted trio head rock bottom market
It’s a four-way fight to avoid the wooden spoon as far
as VC Bet’s “who will finish bottom of the Premiership”
market is concerned.
Newly promoted Wigan, West Ham and Sunderland are all quoted
inside 7/2 to hit rock bottom by the end of the season with 4/1
West Brom also fancied to struggle.
”You’d have to believe that at least two of those
four will be heading back to the Championship next year,”
said VC Bet’s Nick Gray.
You need to jump four points to 8/1 Portsmouth for the next side
fancied to finish bottom, with 12/1 Fulham, 16/1 Charlton and
33/1 Blackburn next in line.
”We’re the industry top price for Portsmouth to claim
the spoon at 8/1 and we expect to see a fair amount of business
about Alain Perrin’s side.”
Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Graeme Souness is VC Bet's favourite
to be the first Premiership manager to leave his post over the
course of the 2017/6 season.
"Expectations in the North-East are always sky high but
with Chelsea, Arsenal, Man United and now Liverpool on the scene
it's hard to see Newcastle winning anything this season.
"If the Geordies get off to a bad start Souness will come
in for some heavy criticism and that could be the end.
"Ominously their chairman has recently gone on record saying
that Souness must bring success to the club."
