Premier League Betting: Norwich favourites to be relegated ahead of Watford, Newcastle


The Canaries are second-bottom despite their famous 3-2 win over Manchester City and the bookmakers think they will have it all to do this season
Whilst Liverpool and Manchester City look set to battle it out for the Premier League title again, the race for survival could prove to be just as enthralling for a host of clubs.
Watford are the only team without a win this season and currently sit bottom of the table with just three points to their name after eight games, and bet365 make them 11/10 (2.10) to go down to the Championship.

Brighton flirted with relegation last season after picking up just three points from their final nine fixtures and could certainly garner some interest at 3/1 (4.0).
The Seagulls beat Spurs 3-0 in their previous fixture but that was just their second win of the campaign and ended a six-game winless streak. Culled from
