Bournemouth Achieve The Near Impossible
Bournemouth are all but promoted after a comfortable win against Bolton Wanderers and they are 11/10 with William Hill to avoid relegation in their inaugural season in the top flight. They are 5/2 to win the Championship with Watford 2/7.
“It is a fantastic achievement for the club especially given that they were 20/1 for promotion at the start of the season,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “There will no doubt be a large number of Cherries fans ecstatic at reaching the Premier League but also happy because they have backed a quite sizeable winner as well.”
Middlesbrough are 15/8 to join the other two in the Premier League next season although Norwich at 9/4, Derby at 3/1 and Ipswich at 4/1 will all be fighting to win the playoffs.
