Baggies Relegation Odds Drifting As Pulis Appointment Nears

With the news that Tony Pulis is set to be named as the New West Brom manager, William Hill have eased the price of the Baggies being relegated from 13/8 to 2/1.

Burnley are the 4/9 favourites with Leicester 4/7 and both Crystal Palace and Hull 6/4.

“Pulis has form when it comes to keeping sides in the Premier League,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We are pre-empting the inevitable upturn in fortunes by easing West Brom’s price for the drop.”

Premier League relegation: 4/9 Burnley; 4/7 Leicester; 6/4 Crystal Palace; 6/4 Hull; 2/1 West Brom; 2/1 QPR; 5/1 Sunderland; 6/1 Aston Villa; 33/1 BAR
